Team Losi 1/24 Micro 4X4 Trail Trekker RTR

Remember Stompers? No not the little buckets that you walk on like stilts, the little 4x4 toy trucks from the 80's. They were cool and fun. People have been making micro scalers from the Losi Micro Rock Crawler for a while now. Now you don't have to have any skill whatsoever and still have a neat little truck.

Oh yeah those guys who think they know everything because they work in the industry and believe RTR's are good for the hobby are really wrong. I read in the newspaper this morning that construction toy sales have increased by 13% last year. Construction toys. People want to build what they play with. Our industry is made up of mostly geeks. Geeks are usually slow when it comes to everything outside their little sphere of interest. This means they have no idea what is going on when the rest of the world is changing. RTR's are useful but we really need to have the option of complete kits with electronics on the shelves next to the RTR's. That will help the hobby grow.

This probably won't be available as a kit though but check it out anyways.
If you like 4X4 trucks and off-road vehicles, you’re going to love the 1/24-scale electric RTR Micro 4×4 Trail Trekker. This go-anywhere, ready-for-anything vehicle comes ready to run, everything you need is included in the box. Not only does it have a Losi radio system with Spektrum 2.4GHZ DSM technology, it also features a high-capacity 4.8V 220mAh NiMH battery for extra long run times. Not to mention the true-to-scale look and realistic details. The 1/24-scale electric RTR Micro 4×4 Trail Trekker is unlike any crawler we’ve ever created.
Want a scale-looking truck that can handle any terrain? The 1/24 Micro 4×4 Trail Trekker RTR from Losi is the vehicle for you. The 4×4 Trail Trekker features an articulating suspension that can handle challenging obstacles like the LOSB1622 Micro Terrain Mountain. The Micro 4×4 Trail Trekker features a longer wheel base and revised suspension geometry than its cousin the Micro Crawler which allows for greater maneuverability when tackling tough terrains. The Micro 4×4 comes completely ready-to-run with a 2.4 GHz DSM radio system, high-capacity battery pack, and charger included. With a realistic scale body in either black or silver and Micro AT Tires, the 4×4 Trail Trekker looks as good as it performs.
