This is the Losi 22 Brushless RTR 1/10 2WD Buggy. Losi has taken the Car of the Year and created a ready-to-run that is equally as impressive as its Team Losi Racing counterpart. The Losi 22 RTR comes equipped with a ROAR-legal, 13.5T sensored brushless system with LiPo cutoff, rugged 2.5mm aluminum chassis, massive 12mm aluminum oil-filled shocks, gull-wing suspension arms, a sealed viscous differential and an innovative steering rack design that minimizes weight while providing an extremely responsive level of control. A Spektrum DX3E 3-channel radio system with easy to access adjustment knobs and LED indicators for battery voltage is also included.
The 22 RTR comes ready-to-run with a factory installed Spektrum DX3E radio system with 2.4GHz DSM technology. Packed with features, the DX3E, paired with the installed SR300 receiver, gives you everything you need to take complete control of the 22 RTR. Itís tough to beat this easy-to-use radio, with its modern Spektrum styling and interference-free reliability. The DX3E comes with added features including battery voltage indicator LEDs and steering dual rates adjustment controls.
NOTE: The Losi 22 RTR buggy is available in either black or blue paint schemes. If you would like a specific color, please contact our customer service department prior to placing your order and we will do our best to honor your request.

I've had my 22 RTR for a couple months now and I've been racing weekly at an indoor carpet track. There's no question that is is a really well designed vehicle, but there are some flaws with the RTR. I'm convinced that 22 is currently among the best 1/10th buggies available, but I think if you're a serious competitor you're better off going with the kit and buying you're own electronics.
The stock servo is high torque and somewhat slow. I actually don't mind this because the 22 has so much turn in that the slower servo actually helps keep the thing under control. But, a more experienced racer will likely want to replace this as soon as possible.
The stock motor is solid as well. I've had no issue with the motor at all. It's reliable and plenty powerful.
The stock ESC fried after several races and I ended up having to replace it. This was disappointing. It performed fine, but for the price of this vehicle, it hould have lasted longer than it did. It never got excessively hot, and I always used the factory gearing with a 2S Lipo with Lipo cutoff enabled. There is no reason this should have happened.
The stock transmitter is surprisingly high quality for an RTR, but the receiver is ill matched for this vehicle. For starters, it's too big. It gets in the way of the battery. I had to remove mine and attach it with velcro so that I can take it off when I change battery packs. After replacing the ESC, the receiver no has issues with interference because the battery leads are so close to the receiver. I don't know if a higher quality receiver would help this or not. This is the only flaw with the 22's design that the interior is so tight, it's hard to find space for all the electronics.
The stock tires are okay by RTR standards but are sub-par compared to various aftermarket tires.
The stock setup is on the the soft side. It probably works well on a dirt track, but on the ultra smooth carpet track where I raced, it needed to stiffened up with new springs and shock fluid.
I also sheered a drive pin after 2 months. This isn't a huge deal, but the 22 buggy uses hollow drive pins that are prone to breaking where as the 22 SCT uses much stronger solid pins and I'm confused as to why the buggy doesn't use those too. I broke a front control arm too, but I can't blame that on the buggy. I missed a jump and hit a wall head on. Overall I'm very impressed with the durability of the chassis. It's survived a lot of abuse.
In the end, despite these flaws, the Losi 22 is an incredible machine. You don't need to be an engineer to see that this is an exceptionally well engineered vehicle. The only flaws are in the RTR components. I highly recommend the Losi 22 kit, but I don't recommend the RTR. Ultimately you will spend more money replacing the sub par electronics that come with the RTR than you will buying your own electronics and tires for the kit. I have no complaints when it comes to the core design of the chassis. I recently built a 22 SCT kit and it was a very easy and fun build, and I expect the 22 buggy kit is the same way. Same your self some time and frustration and get the kit. You won't be disappointed.
losi 22 buggy rules i got it in black i was so happy it rocks now that i have been running it in an 8.5 brushless iv been racing and ive done good with it ive been in top 7 each race soo i like it
I got mine a few days ago but I ordered the race ready 22 but got blue instead of black is what I wanted, that made me mad!!! But I agree its an incredible race ready buggy!!!
I just received my Losi 22 RTR today and I'm very impressed so far. I was hoping that I would get the black one but I received the blue. I was only able to do some minor testing with a 3s lipo from a Parkzone P51 (only battery I had with the EC3 connector). The motor and esc remained cool even though they are not ment to work with a 3 cell lipo. I was very impressed with the acceleration and handeling of the car. The Spektrum remote that is included has a very nice weight and feel to it (comparing it to a FlySky GT3B). I was really debating on getting the Kit version or the RTR and went with the RTR because of the cost savings. The only thing that disappoints slightly is the servo it seems to move pretty slow and I can't find specs for it. If you order this car from Amainhobbies make sure to not choose FedEx shipping it took a full seven days to get to me in CT. When I placed the order I was given the choice of free 3-Day UPS shipping and should have chosen that. Overall I am very happy with the car.
I've had my Losi 22 for a few months now and I LOVE IT! This is my first venture into the 2wd world of rc but this car is amazing. It is a great car to get on the track and race out of the box. But if you are planning to race consistently on weekends I would go ahead and buy the kit because i have already changed all the electronics out on mine to make it a better racer. But over all its a solid car and a great bang for the buck.
Got this a few weeks during cyber monday (got the black one). This thing is smooth as butter. I was expecting to be underwhelmed with the electronics on this thing, but this thing moves! My only complaint out of the box is the slow servo. I have since upgraded the servo (to a Savox 1251mg) and I seriously can't think of anything more this buggy needs. I took this to the track a few days ago and ran it for 8 hours straight. Even the included barcode tires are perfect for the track.
I just received my Losi 22 RTR today I received the blue one witch is cool since its my favorite color. I put the Losi 22 threw its paces and found it to be very stable and easy to drive. I'm very impressed with the acceleration and handling of the car. The Spektrum remote that is included has a very cool and light weight and feel to it. I'm diffidently going to keep this one around for a long time I really really like driving it.
