The Losi Tenacity arrived on our shelves yesterday, it's the first short course truck that has the potential to take business away from the Traxxas Slash 4x4. It has all the usual suspects — a Fuze brushless motor system, Spektrum radio system, and waterproof electronics. It features a new-and-improved AVC that prioritizes steering, so there's no more understeering when AVC is active — a common complaint on previous iterations. Furthermore, since the Tenacity is based on the popular TEN platform, there are loads of upgrades and hop-ups already out there.
The Tenacity is priced at $399.99 and requires a battery and charger; exactly the same as its Traxxas counterpart. Of course, time will tell if the latest Losi truck makes a giant splash or a meager ripple, but I think this truck could at least be a challenger — something no one else has really been able to accomplish in recent memory.
