In the school of off-road nitro racing, there are no diplomas. You either win or you lose. Those who win consistently are the teachers. With huge wins to his credit, like NORRCA's 2001 Nitro Truck Nationals, the Nitro Truck World Cup, 2002 Indoor Gas Championship and 2003 R/C Pro Series Overall Championship, you could say Adam Drake is the Dean of Nitro Truck Racing. Team Losi has combined all of this racing expertise into the new Drake Edition Graphite XXX-NT kit. The result is a phenomenal machine that is identical to the truck Adam used to "school" his opponents in national and international competition.
The Graphite Advantage
With the Drake Edition XXX-NT, Losi has added the benefit of their exclusive molded graphite components. These reduce weight and substantially stiffen the chassis and suspension. The graphite components include suspension arms, bulkheads, shock towers, and the chassis brace. All this adds up to a better-handling truck that boasts excellent acceleration out of the corners and superior handling overall.
Steering and Suspension
The Drake Edition's hard-anodized chassis rides on one of the most sophisticated race-proven suspensions packages available. Its threaded, hard-anodized shocks incorporate double O-ring cartridges and titanium nitride shock shafts. These specially coated shafts resist abrasion from dirt and debris and last significantly longer than untreated shafts. Bulletproof titanium turnbuckles are used front and rear for easy camber adjustments. Steering is further enhanced with precision ball bearings on the steering bellcrank and idler shafts.
In addition to the suspension and steering, Losi goes the extra mile by including lots of other competition quality accessories:
* New hard-anodized aluminum brake clips * New high-performance tuned pipe and lowered manifold * New Fury-NT body * New heavy-duty clutch bearings * Logo printed, solid-face wheels * Alloy steel front axles * Die-cut, full-color Drake Edition sticker sheet * 1-degree rear hub carriers
Losi has also included setup tips from the man himself so racers can get the most from the Drake Edition XXX-NT. There's no question that the XXX-NT is a formidable machine without upgrades. With the added features and new parts in the Drake Edition, Losi has made it almost invincible. If you are itching to teach your competition a thing or two, this truck is most definitely for you.
