Losi LST XXL-2 RTR 1/8 4WD Gas Monster Truck
I have the Aftershock, the LST1 nitro, LST2 nitro and the LST2 E. Best platform. Best quality build in RC. Easiest truck to maintain. Best looking 1/8. Could've been an award winner if it wasn't for the .31 failure. Two seized engines back to back and its now converted to electric. They should right this wrong by pulling this particular model off the market.

Losi LST XXL-2 RTR 1/8 4WD Gas Monster Truck
I bought this truck from LHS where I have purchased almost as much as I have from AMain. AMain is awesome btw! As above review notes, the truck looks great at first inspection and is in fact a very well balanced platform that is a ball to drive. Having said that, you won't be driving it very much with this Dynamite engine. I, unfortunately, did not do my research pre-purchase and did not know about the connecting rod ISSUE. The ISSUE is that the connecting rod is completely inadequate to even very moderate running no matter how well the engine is broken in, what temp you run at, or what fluids you use. I am currently waiting for my 4th warranty rebuild with all 4 failures coming after exacting break-in with recommended fluids and all failures occurred with engine temps between 190 and 208 degrees. Each time the connecting rod just twists itself into apart. I would definitely recommend checking out some of the forums and verifying this before you purchased this vehicle.

Losi LST XXL-2 RTR 1/8 4WD Gas Monster Truck
This review is no reflection of amain. I bought this truck from a company that rhymes with Orizon only starts with an H. A mistake I will not make again. The truck at first appears sweet. Its big and shiney and and seems to be a good quality product. Then comes break in. Nobody told me this was a literal term. I received the truck a month ago and have been able to run it maybe a grand total of 2 hours. while strictly following the recommended break-in procedure and half way through the 2nd tank of gas using the supplied 2 cycle oil (which is the only type you are supposed to use in this truck.....lol) the engine just randomly seized. Engine temp was around 180 at the block. The engine was replace by the same company and when I got my truck back and exhaust pipe hanger was broke and as I recently discovered the gear tooth clearance was not set, resulting in the most recent failure; a rounded off 70t low speed gear. I'm hoping these are all just "kinks". But to be honest I wouldn't buy it again. Its an expensive head ache.

Just need a small part to be the best Monster Truck out there. Engine mount or top plate for nitro. The gas motor makes it useless.
