Crawler Suspension

The multi-link suspension design allows for extreme articulation, making the impossible climb possible. The specially-designed telescoping and sliding driveshafts ensure that the wheels can crawl over and around any grueling rock formation, no matter the angle of the suspension.

Featured Electronics

Motor and ESC

Crawler-tuned Motor and Speed Control

Engineered to provide the low-speed torque needed for serious rock crawling, the Losi Mini-Rock Crawler electric motor and Mini-Rock Crawler speed control with drag brake holds you in place but puts the power to the rocks when you need it.


High-Torque Steering Servo

Crawler-Specific Servo

A purpose-built, oversized servo provides maximum torque and precision for controlling the Mini-Rock Crawler over any obstacle or course.


Features

'Tuber' Style Body

"Tuber" Style Body

Designed and styled like full-scale rock crawlers, the Mini-Rock Crawler's body has been pinched and dovetailed for maximum suspension articulation without body contact, and comes predecorated.


Twin Vertical Plate chassis

TVP Chassis Design

The Mini-Rock Crawler's Twin Vertical Plate chassis offers unbeatable stability and rigidity in a durable, lightweight design. The result is confident handling over any terrain and outstanding suspension articulation.


Rock Claw Tires with Bead Lock Style Wheels

Crawler-Specific Tires and Wheels

By scaling down the incredibly successful Rock Claw 2.2 tire design, Losi was able to equip the Mini-Rock Crawler with a proven tire design that can tackle virtually anything you throw at it. Mounted to 1.9 Beadlock-style wheels based on full-size design, the Mini-Rock Claws are ready to claw over any environment.


Telescoping/Sliding Driveshafts

Telescoping/Sliding Driveshafts

Specially-designed telescoping/sliding driveshafts are utilized at both ends of the Mini-Rock Crawler, ensuring that the wheels can power around and over obstacles no matter what angle the suspension is at. Metal yolks are used at both ends for extreme power and torque handling.


Multi-Link Suspension

Multi-Link Suspension

The multi-link suspension design consists of alloy lower suspension links with captured ends, and solid axles with optimized drive shaft angles for free rotating driveline throughout suspension travel.


Locked Differentials

Locked Differentials Front and Rear

The Mini-Rock Crawler is equipped with locked differentials for consistent power distribution to all 4 wheels. The differentials feature durable metal ring and pinion gears to stand up to the stresses of rock crawling.


Transmission

3-Gear Center Transmission

The 3-gear centrally-mounted transmission provides the Mini-Rock Crawler with excellent weight distribution and an ultra low 86:1 final drive ratio for climbing tough obstacles.


Bind-N-Drive

What is Bind-N-Drive?

Bind-N-Drive (BND) is a transmitter-less option for RC enthusiasts who already own a surface transmitter featuring Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM Technology. This money-saving innovation allows you to add a Bind-N-Drive vehicle to your collection without the extra cost or clutter of an extra transmitter.

How Bind-N-Drive Works

1. Choose your DSM transmitter
The surface transmitters pictured below feature Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM Technology and are compatible with the 1/18 Mini-Rock Crawler.
You may already own one of these transmitters if you already own a Losi Ready-To-Run vehicle that includes a DSM transmitter.

  • LSR-3000 DSM Transmitter
  • MTX Pro DSM Transmitter
  • Spektrum DX3R DSM2
  • Spektrum DX3S DSM

Spektrum DX2, DX2.0, DX3 and DX3.0 transmitters are also compatible with Bind-N-Drive vehicles.

2. Bind your transmitter
Bind your DSM transmitter to the 1/24 Micro Rock Crawler's receiver and you are ready for action.
Please refer to you Losi vehicle's manual for complete instructions on the binding process.

Don't own a transmitter?

If you don't already own a DSM transmitter then you should consider the 1/18 Mini-Rock Crawler Ready-To-Run (LOSB0222). The ready-to-run version of the 1/18 Mini-Rock Crawler comes fully assembled and includes a receiver and transmitter with Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM technology.

Losi also recommends purchasing a multi-model Spektrum radio system such as the DX3S or the DX3R. A multi-model Spektrum radio system will allow you to add Bind-N-Drive models to your collection without the need for an additional transmitter or repeating the binding process when switching between DSM vehicles.
