Review: Losi 1/10-scale Slider
This is a great time to be a dirt oval fan as this segment has never been stronger. Losi has helped in this resurrection by releasing several 1/18-scale dirt oval cars. For those looking for a larger dirt oval vehicle, there’s the 1/8-scale L8IGHT Model. But until now there hasn’t been anything to bridge the gap between the 1/18-scale minis and the 1/8-scale behemoths. That is where the 1/10-scale Slider comes into play.
At 1/10-scale, this Slider comes equipped with everything someone would need to get up and running with a dirt oval car the right way. The upper wing has a number of different mounting points to alter the downforce and handling of the car. The suspension is fully adjustable and features oil-filled threaded body aluminum shocks, turnbuckle camber and steering links, and multiple shock mounting locations in both the a-arms and shock towers. Check out the video below for our comprehensive performance review.
