Have Freedom Of Full Throttle – Thanks To AVC
When you are ready to feel the full power of the brushless motor, don’t hold back. The receiver’s built-in AVC (Active Vehicle Control) system will work to help control this powerful truck.
The AVC makes hundreds of throttle and steering adjustments per second while you are running, so more of the motor’s power is translated into intense speed and acceleration instead of just flying dirt. An AVC adjustment knob on the included DX2e Active transmitter lets you adjust the amount of traction control the system provides. You can even turn it off completely if you don’t want to use it.
The Spektrum Active Radio System With AVC
The Spektrum DX2e Active radio system offers features and performance never before available in a Ready-To-Run radio system. The LST 3XL-E monster truck comes with advanced features like (Active Vehicle Control) AVC adjustability, a 3-position throttle limiting switch, For a Low, Medium and High setting and travel adjust along with steering trim adjustment.
It also has an expansion port that lets you add the Spektrum Speedometer or a Bluetooth module and phone mount for the Spektrum Dashboard app. You also get the benefit of comfortable ergonomics and race inspired DSMR 2.4GHz technology that delivers lightning fast response rates and superior interference protection, especially in busy 2.4GHz environments.
Tough LSD Center Differential
The Losi LST 3XL uses a limited slip center differential that effortlessly provides power to all 4-wheels. This center differential ensures a completely smooth delivery of power to all parts of the vehicle, regardless of the conditions. The LSD lets the truck accelerate and stay balanced on any terrain. Just punch the throttle and the LSD locks up, to provide full power to all 4 wheels for extreme acceleration.

True Monster Power – The Extreme

The Losi LST is fast and very powerful. This big truck will do backflips from a standstill. From a dead stop, Punch the throttle and the truck will perform a backflip without delay. It will wheelie like no other and even back endows. Just punch the throttle to go in reverse and the truck will wheelie backward.
When you are running this truck in high setting, Be sure to have plenty of room to run it. The speed and power are just crazy. You need to be careful when you go fast and put the brakes on, As the truck will flip over (front flip) the brakes on the Losi are insane.
My Thoughts – Extremely Fun
I recommend the Losi LST 3XL to anyone that has experience with fast and powerful RCs. This thing is truly an insanely fun monster truck. It really does fly and jumps very well. Losi built this truck extremely durable as well. I have cart-wheeled this truck more times than I can count.
One time I was running on high setting and turned a corner and hit the brakes at the same time, The truck’s rear end came up and over the front end and just cart-wheeled 13 times that I could count before it came to a rest. I was certain that something had to be broken. When I walked up to the truck and I looked it all over, To my surprise the truck was fine. Not a single broken part. This has happened to me several times now since I have owned this truck and I have yet to have anything break. For more information and price check out my off-road RC page.

Wow RC have come a long way since I first started using them. I got all excited watching the video and told my wife this is what I want for Christmas. Great post I’ll keep coming back for updates. Thank you so much.
The technology in today’s RC’S makes them exciting. They are more powerful and Extremely durable.
Hi, these look like so much fun. I got all excited and checked out the price on your off-road RC page but this will be too expensive for my kids (I have twin boys – they LOVE this stuff). We’ve bought them monster trucks before but they haven’t lasted very long so I thought this seemed great because they seem really tough. Would you recommend anything for me that might be a little less pricey but still really cool? Thanks
Yes these are great fun. If your looking for something a little cheaper, maybe the red-cat Racing volcano EPX or the Traxxas slash 2wd. Both are under $200 and are durable trucks.
