We would all like to strap into a 900-horsepower 1,200-pound Winged Sprint Car and rocket around a tacky dirt oval. Unfortunately, not all of us have the budget to throw down with the World of Outlaws, but thanks to Losi, a world leader in RC Racing, and its parent company, Horizon Hobby, we can get our Sprint Car fix without mortgaging the house. The new "Mini Sprint" radio-controlled racer is a 1/18-scale hobby-quality model capable of real speeds of more than 20 mph (scales more than 300 mph).
It can be tuned much like a real Sprint Car with realistic features that include a full tube chassis, body panels, wings, wheels and tires, and even tubular headers for the most detailed appearance. It's rivaled only by top-of-the-line die-cast. Folks, the oil filled coilover shocks are even rebuildable. That's right, this Mini Sprint Car has shocks just like the ones we race week in and week out. You can also adjust wing attitude, camber, toe, and more.
The 2.4 GHz DSM Technology radio controller that it comes with delivers interference-free control each and every place you drive. That means it's possible to run a 24-car main event of either Winged or Wingless Sprints in your backyard or driveway without having similar frequencies compromise performance!
Featuring an easy-to-access bottom-loading battery door, a balanced mid-motor mount design, realistic true-to-scale large right rear tire and a decal sheet with numbers so you can customize its look, the Mini Sprint is sure to be a hit with racers everywhere. We can vouch for that since we got our hands on one and tested it repeatedly with outstanding results. And, yes, it acts just like a real Sprint Car; meaning if you hook a tire you will cartwheel it. Go to www.circletrack.com to see some fun footage of the car.
The MSRP for the complete, ready to run Mini Sprint is $249.99 however participating retailers are offering it for $159. Unlike toy cars, parts for the Mini Sprint are available nationally at your local hobby shop.
