The Team Losi Mini-T RTR itself is a great truck and loads of fun right out of the box. However as with any R/C there is always room for improvement and the Losi Mini-T is no exception to the rule. Lucky for you Team Losi offers a large number of hop-ups to take your Losi Mini-T to the next level.
1. Oil filled aluminum shocks
The factory plastic friction shocks just don’t cut it when racing or jumping your mini-t and the ability to customize your suspension stiffness or softness just doesn’t exist like you’d have with the Team Losi aluminum oil filled shocks. Oil-Filled Shocks will eliminate bounce and dramatically improve handling on rough surfaces!
2. Ball Bearings
Ball bearings are a MUST! Bushings on any R/C wear out much faster can cause a lot more friction then a good set of ball bearings. Ball bearings will allow your Mini-T to run not only faster because of the decreased friction but also longer!
3. 2-Cell LiPo Battery
Upgrading your Losi Mini-T to a 2-cell LiPo battery has many advantages. For one LiPo batteries are lighter then traditional NiMh batteries, plus they offer increased speeds and a lot longer run times over stock mini-t battery packs.
4. Heavy Duty Ball Differential
Stronger and faster modified motors are being placed inside the Mini-T and to handle all this extra power a heavy duty ball diff is definitely needed. Completely stock Mini-T’s without a modified motor will also see an improvement in traction.
5. Titanium Turnbuckles
The lightweight and extreme strength of Titanium is reason enough for upgrading your Losi Mini-T with a set of these. The fact that the Losi titanium turnbuckles also feature left and right threads on either side that allows for quick and easy adjustment is just another bonus!
