    The Losi TEN-T is a pretty awesome truck. From it's 8IGHT-inspired chassis and suspension, powerful 3.4cc Losi engine and Spektrum DX3S transmitter, the TEN-T comes out of the box very well equipped. On top of all those features the TEN-T also includes the R.O.S.S., or Remote On-board Starting System, making it easier than ever to get a nitro vehicle started than ever before. You can literally get your engine started at the push of a button with this system.

     With any new piece of technology there can be some confusion regarding how to use, care for and maintain the item. We were able to sit down recently with the man who helped bring the TEN-T to life, Gary Kyes of Losi. Gary is one of the pioneers in RC and has loaned his expertise to this vehicle. Gary walks us through how the R.O.S.S. system works, how to start the engine and keep it running when it's cold, the importance of using quality fuel and more. We have broken the video into two parts due to length, so please make sure that you check out both parts for all the information.
