I had my sons Losi Crawler with me this weekend and after I broke we went back to camp and it killed the afternoon till everyone got back. They are great fun and not that pricey at least not the 1/18th scale...much more totable anywhere. I have had the 1/10th scale as well and they are they the pricey ones.

About the video....ya its rigged like everyone already posted up with changing batt locations and tires etc. He just didnt change the ratio and crawl up the wall.

Body Damage is Cool

(Even though it is an RC car, you can apply it to real world)

I think some took this to the waaaay too literal meaning. The R/C car could/probably had other modifications also, but the point was that gearing/crawl ratio can make a big difference. It alone isn't the magic key, you have to make other modifications (like tires etc as the R/C guy did). <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

And I remember watching you guys play with the R/C car on the exit from Welder then at camp. Stacking rocks for an R/C car, well it was Lorenzo driving it after all.... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/baby.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/baby.gif" alt="" />

Did you notice how much the tires were aired down for the lower geared footage. A little help there but the point is still valid.

Just saying. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/lol.gif" alt="" />

He put totally different tires on for the lower geared videos.

He also moved the batteries back in the frame as well.

the tires were also wet, to make the rubber more 'sticky' to get traction on the carpet.
