Carbon fiber graphite chassis plates shave weight off this truck and add some serious style-points.
The Losi hard anodized skid plates protect the underside of your truck from the rigors of a harsh environment.
The basic chassis layout is shared between the LST, LST2, Aftershock, and Mega Baja. The overall design is beefy and strong, yet there’s potential to lighten the truck and add some style and rigidity. I have to admit I absolutely love the way carbon fiber graphite looks on any vehicle; I think it has to do with my background in on-road cars. The Losi Carbon Fiber chassis plates for the LST2 are very lightweight and strong, while adding some style points at the same time. Installing the graphite upper chassis plate and high-performance top plates front and rear was really a no-brainer for me. Along with adding strength and style, the graphite plates also shaved a lot of weight off the truck.
