"Dude, I'm going to build a rock crawler!" Ten years ago that simple statement would have gotten you laughed out of the hobby shop. A rock crawler? Seriously? How do you race it? Gates? Points? Rigs? It's amazing how much things have changed in recent years as rock crawlers are most definitely a big deal in RC these days with what seems to be a new crawler coming onto the scene every week. Anytime there's a hot new class the question of "when's a Losi one coming out?" always arises. With guys like Rich Trujillo behind the scenes Losi is set to release their vision of the ultimate rock crawler onto the world.

We've gotten a hold of one of the final preproduction samples to give you an inside look at this truly remarkable rig. From its included DIG transmission, low CG, LiPo- and Brushless-ready design, National Champion Rock Claw tires and more this is one truck that will set the standards others will be judged against. Beyond all those awesome features you don't even have to build it! That's right, the Comp Crawler is a Race Roller, assembled for you and waiting for you to apply the paint and install your electronics. Come along as we get the inside scoop for you on the 1/10-scale Losi Comp Crawler.
