Losi goes brushless with NEW 65mph SPEED-T

Jan 17, 2008 No Comments by

Losi was the first to bring brushless power to an RTR with the Triple-XT Sport Brushless back in 2006, but the new Xcelorin-powered Speed-T is an entirely different animal. As its name and low-profile Road Weapon tires attest, this truck is all about humiliating the other guys in the neighborhood with sizziling street speed–up to 65mph, according to Losi. Here are details and pics from www.losi.com, where you can also download manuals, see video of the new Speed-T in action, and get more info on all things Losi. Look for a full review of the Speed-T in RC Car Action!

From www.Losi.com:

Bring the heat up and down your street with Losi’s fastest electric RTR ever, the Speed-T. Based on a proven, durable chassis designed for brushless systems and an ultimately agile suspension setup, the Speed-T has the foundation to handle serious acceleration unlike any other RC truck. The Speed-T is the only choice for serious drivers in need of serious speed.

01. Losi Xcelorin Brushless Power System
The Speed-T comes equipped with a High-Speed 4800KV motor and a programmable ESC that includes a Quick Programming Card with selectable ESC settings preprogrammed for your convenience.

02. Digital Steering Servo
The included digital steering servo provides precise control and plenty of torque for the proper amount of steering when you need it at high speeds.

03. Wheelie Bar
The installed wheelie bar allows wheel-standing action and control.

04. Low Chassis Set-Up
The optimized chassis and suspension are designed for superior high-speed handling.

05. High Performance Chrome Wheels
The Speed-T features large diameter SpokeZ chrome wheels.

06. Low Profile Street Tires
The included Road Weapon low-profile tires provide superior handling at any speed with enough traction to wheelie on demand, thanks to the Xcelorin brushless system.

07. EC3 Power Connector
The low-resistant EC3 power connectors deliver the power required of hi-demand brushless systems giving the Speed-T to reach very fast speeds.

08. Multiple Power Options
The battery tray is designed for today’s power sources and will accept NiMH and
LiPo battery packs.

DSM radio system

To control this awesome ready-to-run package, Losi equipped the Speed-T with a Losi MTX Pro radio system with Spektrum™ 2.4GHz DSM® Technology for interference free, crystal-free control. The MXT Pro system includes End Point Adjustment to help fine-tune the control and response. This innovative radio system allows you to run your Speed-T anywhere, anytime, with the confidence you need to go fast.

Long arm suspension

The Speed-T’s lowered chassis design and long-arm suspension keep the center of gravity low, allowing the Speed-T to achieve incredible speeds without sacrificing handling. Oil-filled shocks smooth out the bumps, keeping the tires on the ground for maximum acceleration.

Anodized and plated parts

To complete the custom appearance, the Speed-T comes equipped with a long list of anodized and plated parts that add to the durability and appearance of this speed machine.

Road Weapon low-profile tires on oversized SpokeZ chrome wheels

Large diameter chrome wheels come equipped with low-profile Road Weapon 320-Series tires for superior handling at any speed. The low profile tires provide serious road gripping traction, while the large diameter wheels reduce tire sidewall flex for optimum performance.

Wheelie bar

Keeping the tires planted to the ground can be difficult when you have serious brushless power. That’s why the Speed-T comes equipped with an installed wheelie bar, letting you punch the throttle and launch with less risk of flipping over.

Battery compatibility

The Speed-T chassis and electronics are set up to accommodate standard side-by-side NiMH battery packs as well as the latest LiPo packs (Losi EC3 plug required). This gives you the flexibility to choose the power source you want, or switch between multiple packs for a long day of high-speed running.

Powerful 4800Kv Brushless Motor

A low maintenance Xcelorin brushless motor gives the Speed-T longer run times than standard motors, along with incredible top speed potential.

Brushless Electronic Speed Control

The fully-programmable Xcelorin speed control offers numerous programming options for performance, along with precise throttle and braking response. Three (3) pre-programmed profile settings are selectable through the one-button setup on the ESC including a “beginner”, “Sport” and “High-Performance” setting.

Quick Programming Card

The quick programming card lets users adjust the throttle/reverse limits, braking, battery type and more for complete customization for driving preferences.
