Horizon Hobby has just released a completely new car. This time it is an on-road chassis (called the 6IX platform) with a great Audi R8 body which is participating the world famous racing circus FIA-GT3. It is a 4WD brushless car in the scale 1/6 with brushless power so fun is guaranteed!
It is just released so there is not much information available right now. What we know is that this beast will be 82cm long and 36cm wide. The weight is 6.5kg which will make this car almost fly with the out of the box brushless power. Top speed out of the box is approximately 100 km/h, that's fast! The DynamiteRC speed controller handles 6s Lipo batteries (3s parallel). To handle all these power the car comes with Spektrum's Active Vehicle Control which is able to correct the steering and throttle when the car spins.
For Losi this is a completely new car type because they have manufactured only off-road or rally cars. We are very curious about the car and is a direct opponent for the Traxxas xo-1 and MCD XS-5. Okay the last one is a 2-stroke gasoline car but the meaning of the car is equal.
