    Nope. That was in my little rant about "race rollers are the end of the hobby."
    Company A is proving me correct very quickly.

    Nice rant...I agree 100%. Congrats on winning man.

    As for Company A...aka Losi...what a joke. 2 years ago they were a killer race company that offered some Mini's and RTR's to help increase profits and expand the brand name. Now that the Losi family is gone, Horizon is whoring the name out to every piece of crap product they can get their hands on. The Raminator? Who the hell approved the idea of taking the already fragile, underpowered, essentially garbage original Mini LST and slapping a new body on it while removing one of the motors? I mean really...has there ever been a more useless "hobby quality" r/c? It looks super cool...but my God it's a crappy, crappy, crappy truck. The Losi name and brand is done as far as I'm concerned. I may buy more stuff from them in the future...especially if they come out w/ an LST3 or something of that nature, but it will be despite the Losi name on the box, not because of it.

    Theres another thread with the debate running around here somewhere... It was at the top before the server crashed and we had to revert back to early September. That's the proper place to discuss the issue.
    A quick jab though... my gripe is not and never was with RTRs. It's with these new "race rollers" that seem to be popping up.

    That's funny, it says [email] at the bottom. So the mag just plucked it off the forums and printed it? Did the mag ever contact you for an address to send the prize to? Or was printing you got it enough work for them?

    So what a change of heart you have remember your post below in the mlst forum.
    I was one "bitching" then, still do, guess I was right all along. I knew I was though. I've been calling them LOUSY instead of losi ever since I bought that POS mlst.

Show me another 1/18 truck that's as good at such a wide variety of things. The MLST handles well, is somewhat fast and torquey, easy to work on, super cool looking, jumps well, rallies the dirt, etc. Most 1/18's are worthless in the dirt. None of the jump worth a damn...or I guess I should say land worth a damn. Despite the monster truck ground clearance and CG, and relatively narrow track width, the MLST rallies the track with the best of them (especially with the Insane motors that have enough power to burn all four so you can drift the corners). Yes, it definately has had it's issues...the hexes, diffs, and knuckles are all weak points. The worst part about the truck IMO is the center diff. What the hell were they thinking? Overall though, I think they did a great job with the truck...it's a solid package out of the box, and the potential is just amazing. IMO the only other 1/18 with as much ass kicking potential as the MLST is the Mini Inferno.

    Anyways...I'm really happy with the truck so far. It seems like a lot of people are complaining or looking for more...are there other people out there like me, who think that the truck rocks...especially with a couple mods? I haven't had any problems with the drivetrain at all, and I've had the Insane motors in it from the very first battery pack. I'm abusive as hell on the throttle, and I've rallied it around the race track and in the snow and everything, and the drivetrain hasn't given me any trouble at all. The only trouble I've had is a defective reciever...but I bought a new one and haven't had a single hiccup since. No glitching, no nothing..it has worked as well or better than the XS3 that came with my LST since I replaced the Rx. It's been rock solid, and every time I drive it I'm amazed at how well sorted the thing is. It's a bit nose heavy so you've gotta keep it pinned in the air or it'll land smack on the bumper, but other than that, it drives like a dream. Am I the only one with this experience?

    That post was made back when I had a MLST...like what, 2 years ago? Your opinion on some things hasn't changed in a couple of years?

    congrats rccardude04. To tell you the truth, I'm a bit skeptical that you would actually receive this temp gauge. Please let us know if you receive it. Call me a cynic, but seeing that no one has contacted you yet regarding this prize, and they probably don't have your address, it might just be an empty ended marketing strategy to add this vapor prize into the magazine. It's still a flattering gesture nonetheless to see your name in the magazine.
