It is not so much a site as a contact. I have been ringing around all
the Losi dealers and distributors in Australia and they have not been
that helpful. In the past is was Custom Model Cars in Sydney <http://
members.ozemail.com.au/~cusmod/>who
brought Losi stuff in.
The contract for Losi Sport is now with Model
Filght in Adelaide <http://www.modelflight.com.au/>
The former had no info and kept saying 2 weeks more every time I
rang. Adam at Model Flight (who have a really good website and
online order service) was the first one who didn't spin me BS. The
Losi LST is about 6 weeks away and will retail for about $1000. I
have been told it should be less.
Meanwhile I had been told of Rob's RC Hobbies in California <http://
www.robsrchobbies.com/>. I have spoken to him a couple of times -
real nice guy. Rob has already sent 2 LST's to Australia - one to
Tasmania and one to Sydney. I have spoken to both those guys and
they love their trucks. Their comments can be found on US forums.
Rob initially had 3 trucks and 2 came down under. He got 3 more
yesterday and the first is on its way to me. He may have 2 left but be
quick. He charges: US$579 for the LST & US$111 for shipping. I also
got shock shafts, spur gears, A arms & CVD for a few bucks a pack!
The CVD's were more expensive but have been breaking on some
trucks. This see the LST landeed for low $900 Aussie dollars!

First of all congrats on the Losi it looks great can't wait to see it. Secondly, yes Rob from RC Hobbies is pretty good, just bought a new controller off him last Monday, and talk about cheap. He seems to know what he is talking about and will help in any way he can. I would highly recommend him to anyone.





When do you think you'll have LST Rev

I am really looking forward to some first hand experience with this
truck. This is probably the only one of the "New Breeds" that
caught my eye at the time. It's big, it looks tough as nails, and
should be pushed along nicely by the stock engine.



Can't wait for your "review".



Regards,



Chris

$900 au you say? You sure it wasnt $899? $899 looks more attainable to our fellow readers.


Well when you realise that sweetJR radio costs $300au, it's like you are getting the truck for $600. Cheaper than a Savage SS.

Hey rev how ya doing mate. Did u get your truck through robs rc hobbies. If you did, they are on the ball and really look after their customers. I bought and paid for a JR controller on Monday 16/08 and received it today (fri 20/8). Cost me $32 au p/h from states. All up I saved nearly $60.00 over LHS. Super quick and easy to use.
