Surprise–Losi now has a scale desert truck, complete with independent front suspension and a solid-axle rear end. The all-new Baja Rey looks just as authentic with its body off as it does with the multi-piece body on, and 3800Kv brushless power with Active Vehicle Control is standard. Losi says the system is 3S-rated and the truck can top 45mph, so the Baja Rey is more than just pretty plastic. And if all that tubework has you worried, don’t be– the chassis is designed for easy motor and battery access. See lots more pics below, along with all the official details.
If you crave a realistic, 1/10-scale desert truck experience, complete with the ridiculous power and awesome off-road capabilities the full-scale versions are famous for, this brushless-powered brute is exactly what you’re after.
The Losi® Baja Rey™desert truck is built on one of the most advanced chassis ever conceived for a ready-to-run vehicle. It comes equipped with a Dynamite® 3800Kv brushless power system, as well as a long-travel suspension, so you tear across all types of terrain at speeds of 45mph or more! And you’ll do so with the full-throttle freedom that only AVC® technology can provide.
Baja-Inspired Chassis with Long-Travel Suspension
The Losi development team started from the ground up with an entirely new chassis design that brilliantly blends scale realism with functional 4WD capabilities. The foundation consists of a 3mm, hard-anodized aluminum chassis plate that is integrated with a realistic roll cage made of super-tough composite material. To this it adds a long-travel, independent front suspension and 4-link live rear axle that look and function exactly like their full-scale counterparts.
Dynamite® 3800Kv Brushless Power System
The truck comes equipped with a Dynamite Fuze™3800Kv brushless motor and a waterproof 130A ESC. This potent combination can handle 2S or 3S LiPo batteries (sold separately) and will allow you to hurtle across the landscape at speeds of up to 45+ mph.
Sealed Metal-Gear Transmission and Diffs
The single-speed transmission, as well as the front and center diffs, are sealed against the elements and engineered to handle the abuse of a high-output brushless motor and punishing terrain. MOD 1 gears further increase the durability of this desert beast.
Coil-Over Oil-Filled Shocks
The long-travel shocks do a fantastic job of soaking up the energy from big bumps and jumps. They also feature threaded shock bodies with adjustment collars so you can fine tune the pre-load settings of the coil-over springs. External bump stops provide plush landings on the hardest surfaces.
The receiver, servo and ESC are all waterproof so you can run anytime, rain or shine.
The motor can quickly be accessed for gear changes and servicing simply by removing three screws in the bottom of the chassis.
Easy-Access Battery Compartment
A convenient battery door in the back of the chassis makes it easy to swap batteries without having to remove the body or wrestle with battery straps.
4-Piece Bolt-On Body Panels
The bolt-on body panels are incredibly durable and eliminate the need for body posts that might spoil the scale looks.
The Full-Throttle Freedom of AVC® Technology
When you’re ready to let the brushless motor off the chain, don’t hold back. The receiver’s built-in AVC (Active Vehicle Control®) system will work behind the scenes, making hundreds of tiny throttle and steering adjustments per second, so more of the motor’s power is translated into ballistic speed and acceleration instead of just flying dirt. An AVC adjustment knob on the included DX2E transmitter lets you adjust how much traction control the system provides. You can even turn it off.
Sway bars come standard and reduce chassis roll while increasing stability at high speeds.
