The Losi Night Crawler SE is a great option for drivers that love scale crawling and night driving. It's built on the proven Losi Night Crawler heritage, but offers more lights and an Exoskeleton cage. The cage and body provide impressive scale details without compromising performance or durability. Additional front and rear rock lights will make it easier to see obstacles in your path and brighter LED light strips will further light the way. This crawler feels most at home on rocky terrain-the rougher, the better-and it doesn't shy away from mud or water, either.

Worm Drive Gearing. This feature guarantees a slow crawl with no back-rolling or loss of control on steep ascents or descents. It also keeps the speed slow and the torque even throughout acceleration
It crawls fantastically. The body geometry allows a 40 degree body-twist that is invaluable for crawling brick piles, going from log-to-log, making tight turns up steep, bumpy slopes,
Thankfully it came with factory bead-lock rims. This allowed me to weight them with lead solder right off the bat unlike my TRX-4 Bronco rims.
The factory Super Swampers are a decent crawling tire but give them time for break-in as they are a bit slippery for 10-12 hours when new.
Factory 35t motor is weak
While gearing up a tooth or two on pinion gear can help get the RPMs up for a bit of extra oomph, doing so smoked the motor in short order
The worm drive gears destroy brushed motors under 35t.
The factory ESC is super basic and does not offer any mode options. I run a hobby wing quiickset 80 amp which allows me to set important parameters such as freewheeling, forward force, and brake
Factory Trans/reciever are adequate but cheap.
It is only available in RTR form which sucks because I would upgrade my kids Redcats if I could get them without the crummy electronics
There are few aftermarket parts available which sucks I can see many ways to improve and accessorize this beast but nothing is available. You cannot even change the body type easily
I would give this 5 stars because I love it and it is my comp rock crawler but the bands are pretty annoying. For pure crawling it's great. I run a Holmes 54t brushed motor with 18t pinion. It is very slow and very competitive.
