That statement is not qualified at all. If a shafty was competitive on the super scale you would see them in the rankings at ANY major comp.

Probably true. Though I'd like to know how many shafty supers actually compete at major comps...my guess is not many...

Yes it is unlikly but i would like to see more options for a super class crawler, we the consumer should be able to tell companys what we want, we are paying them to, if we show that there is a possible market for a losi super then they may see it is a profitable and build one.

Don't worry about Harley, he's just bitter he can't drive a shafty very well:-P:-P

A large version of the LCC would definitely be able to hang with Clod's and MOA's, but finding electronics to have enough power would be tricky....Maybe 5-6S lipo with a Holmes BR-XL would be the ticket. One of the reasons that Shafty's aren't super competitive right now, is there isn't a good dig assembly that can either hold up well, or works well. Having F/R disconnect on a super shafty would be sick.

Losi can do it, it's just a matter of showing them that we are interested in the super class, they have a crawler in every other class so why not a super too.

I'm in as well! Regardless of shafty or moa, I would hop on a good quality super artr or kit. Also, since it's losi, parts availability would be pretty decent which be nice for us in Canada.

It worked for the micro, it only seems right for them to have a crawler for every class and i just want a shafty super that has parts that will be avalible.
I know this is the 2.2 thread but there is no other area that was losi specific for supers.
Feel free to post feelings or thoughts...

I think if anyone would make one it would be Axial. just my $.02

"supers are built, not bought"

I would buy one. When i have the money i think i am going to try and build one with losi axles, moa, longer inneraxles, and some spacers between the blastic housing and knuckle. Maybe a brace across the top to support the ends.

Someone should build one so we can see what it would look like!

Very true, but still, even finding axles is hard enough. I've read of Berg's being used, but then I'd be ordering everything from across the border. Twin/mad force axles are ideal, but are no longer produced. With TXT and clod axles, I would say tamiya parts availability isn't all that great (at least around here). I guess one could build axles out of e-maxx parts, but my construction know-how is limited and I'd rather stick to just making my own chassis and links.

Now if a company with better distribution came out with good super axles, or a good super kit(like losi or axial) then we'd have a good base to start building a super on without having to scrounge up parts from classifieds and what not. Also, it may get other manufacturers to start producing better 40 series tires (assuming that's the size losi uses for their super), though i think the problem there is just a lack of wheel size spec for the super class...but i digress...

Stona is stoned. Kyosho still builds the Mad Force. They re-released it late last fall. They are the ONLY axle to build a Super shafty with. Unlimited width adjustability and almost any 1/8th buggy parts will fill the housing.

Not stoned....but yeah, you're right they did re-issue the madforce kruiser or something - i forgot about that. Still, kyosho isn't as heavily carried around here as axial or losi for example.

Regardless of the company i would like to see a new super crawler, yes a home made super is probably going to be better than a kit but some of us don't have the tools or time to build a good super.
Thanks for all the comments

Only 9 years later... its happening. But not by the actual company.

Hopefully what I'm doing catches on. I don't want to be the only weirdo doing this.
