Losi’s New Desert Buggy XL: 1/5 Scale 4WD Open-Wheeler

Nov 22, 2013 No Comments by

Losi’s latest gas-burner goes for a desert-buggy look, and is built on a unique chassis–it’s not a re-skinned 5IVE-T. The engine is different too, a 23cc mill instead of the truck’s 26cc powerplant. Spektrum radio gear is standard,  and the Desert Buggy XL rolls out RTR just as you see it here. Looking forward to driving this one…

The Losi® Desert Buggy XL™ vehicle is ready to deliver high impact RC excitement. This 1/5-scale gas-powered powerhouse attacks the terrain with a relentless 4WD drivetrain and a 23cc gas engine that delivers over 40 minutes of driving.

Built big and bold to deliver high impact excitement, the Losi® Desert Buggy XL™ vehicle makes its presence known with a roaring 23cc gasoline engine. The engineers at Losi designed this 1/5th-scale powerhouse to withstand the rigors of intense off-road driving with a terrain-killing 4WD drivetrain and a heavy-duty construction that pulverizes the terrain at ballistic speeds. With a rigid injection molded roll cage built on a reinforced 5mm aluminum chassis, the Desert Buggy XL can withstand the punishment of the most brutal driving styles. The Desert Buggy XL is also in for the long haul with a large-capacity gas tank that provides over 40 minutes of relentless action on a full tank. When maintenance is a necessity, the roll cage can be removed for easy access to the chassis. The Losi Desert Buggy XL vehicle is large scale RC driving excitement at its most satisfying.
