RC Car Action - - PERFORMANCE TEST -

The Losi 22S SCT is an ex­cit­ing ve­hi­cle. All-metal gears in the trans­mis­sion hous­ing is a plus, and I’m a fan of the trans­mit­ters­e­lectable max-throt­tle set­tings. Every­one likes to go fast, and this truck gets you to 50+mph, so you can’t go wrong if you’re look­ing for speed. The truck is a beast with a 3S pack, and the abil­ity to “tame” it with the 75% throt­tle set­ting is a great fea­ture.

I’ll be stick­ing to 2S power, which is more con­trol­lable, and in the end, that makes the truck more fun to drive. My only real gripe with the truck is the bot­tom-load bat­tery sys­tem; I like it as a con­cept, but in ac­tual use, it’s not the con­ve­nience you might ex­pect. Not a big deal. Over­all, the 22S is a fun truck for all-around short-course fun, with rac­ing DNA that makes for an easy tran­si­tion to the track if you de­cide to chase lap times.
