Losi MTXL and DBXL differences and similarities [Exploded views included]

Losi MTXL and DBXL differences and similarities [Exploded views included]

Yesterday was a interesting day for all Losi largescale enthousiasts. Horizon Hobby announced the Losi MTXL, a Monster Truck based on the DBXL. We have taken a closer look to both of the cars and there are a large amount of differences which makes the MTXL very interesting. Curious about the differences and similarities? Please read further!

It is good to have a updated DBXL!

The choice to use an existing chassis is always a good thing. Of course the chassis has to be proven to be good but that's the DBXL. There are many drivers that are loving the DBXL for a long time already. Some didn't like it and are choosing to drive the bigger brother (5ive-T). Always good to have a choice by personal taste. We like both of the cars but the DBXL could use some refinements to become a killer machine. And that is exactly what Losi did on the MTXL!

It is also a pleasure to have an upgraded chassis with plenty of available hop-up parts which are already available on the market. And yes, the DBXL could use some of these parts. Think about the plastic clutch bell carrier which is also available made out of aluminium as a aftermarket part. And when you run the car with a stronger engine you need this. The good thing is that all the development for the DBXL are also usable on the MTXL (most of the time...)
