XXX-NT Sport ARR w/ Mach.15
At a Glance
In just the few short months since its release, Losi's XXX-NT Sport Ready-To-Run nitro truck has been picked as the new benchmark for ready-to-run nitro trucks by at least one major R/C magazine.* Part of the reason the truck has been received so well is the sophisticated JR XR2 radio control system that comes with it. Losi realizes, though, that some folks may have another system they prefer, which is why they've created the new XXX-NT Sport ARR (Almost Ready-To-Run). The ARR version comes completely built without the radio system and servos, allowing racers to use the electronics of their choice.
The XXX-NT ARR is identical to the RTR version in every respect except for the installation of the radio. It benefits from the same chassis design and suspension that earned the kit-built XXX-NT RC Car magazine's 2001 "Nitro Truck of the Year" award. Its oil-filled shocks are hard-anodized and ball bearings are everywhere from the wheels to the drivetrain. Turnbuckles on the front and rear suspension link give racers an abundance of tuning options.
Bolted to the chassis is the same large-displacement Mach .15 engine with pull- start that comes with the completely RTR version. A specially tuned exhaust pipe helps maximize the engine's power. Once it's been broken in and leaned for peak power, the Mach .15 can have the XXX-NT Sport consistently achieving top speeds of 35 to 40 mph-more than enough power to make it a trophy contender in Sportsman Class competition.
Like the RTR version, the ARR comes with a great looking painted body that's trimmed and mounted on the chassis at the factory. Three color schemes are available: Grape, Aqua, and Graphite. All that's left to do is apply the stickers. With the addition of the XXX-NT Sport ARR to the line, Losi now has more options than ever for those who are looking to take the plunge into nitro truck racing but simply don't want to build.
