Losi Announces All-New 1/6 Scale Audi R8 GT3 Supercar

Losi Announces All-New 1/6 Scale Audi R8 GT3 Supercar

No one saw this thing coming! Losi’s super-sized take on street-shredding RC looks like a real powerhouse. The car is built on an all-new chassis dubbed the “6IX,” and will arrive RTR. The car’s sensorless 1200Kv motor is fueled by dual batteries (not included) and a 6S-rated speed control that delivers over 60mph, says Losi. A single “large scale” servo does the steering, with help from Spektrum Active Vehicle Control (AVC) to keep the big car pointed in the right direction. The shocks are 18mm big-bore units, and the Audi is built on a 3mm aluminum chassis. As you can see, the officially licensed 2013 Audi R8 LMS Ultra FIA-GT3 body work is beautifully rendered.

Much more when we get our hands on a 6IX of our own–stay tuned.

Posing the 6IX with its included DX2E transmitter gives a sense of the car’s big 1/6 scale size. Wheelbase is 18.8 inches.



The 6IX carries its batteries in the rear of the chassis and mounts all the electronics ahead of the spur gear.



Expect a smooth ride with those 18mm shocks doing the damping.



A 1200Kv sensorless motor does the spinning, and is mated to a center differential. The 6IX’s triple-diff drivetrain uses Losi’s VTV (Viscous Torque Vectoring) differentials.



The tall battery compartments should have no trouble swallowing high-capacity packs. But how do they get in?



Ah ha, trap doors. Note the cam-locks that hold the doors shut.
