The Mini-Late Model features ball bearings, oil-filled shocks, RX-280 motor and a Losi radio system with 2.4GHz DSM technology. The Mini-Late Model’s size and handling will have you speeding through the corners anywhere and everywhere.

With the popularity of full-size dirt racing on the rise, Losi brings that experience to you in 1/10 scale. The Slider looks like an exact replica of the same cars that tear up the local dirt tracks on weekend nights. To match the excellent lines of the body, the Slider features molded headers and roll cage, multi-piece Lexan bodies, Lexan wheel covers and realistically treaded tires. Based on a scaled-up version of the Mini-Slider, the 1/10-scale Slider has a few new tricks under the hood. A powerful 32K Losi motor has enough grunt to keep you smiling for miles. Control is provided by a Losi 2.4GHz radio system that utilizes Spektrum’s patent pending DSM technology for glitch-free operation.
