A Rock-crawling Classic is Reborn: Losi’s Night Crawler SE

A Rock-crawling Classic is Reborn: Losi’s Night Crawler SE

While the scale trailing scene is amazing, there’s something to be said for hitting the rocks with a rugged and capable R/C crawler. Losi’s Night Crawler is one of a few “rock crawlers” available on the market, and this classic crusher has been blessed with an update.

The Losi Night Crawler SE keeps the 1/10-scale of the original, but adds a new body, scale detailing, and accessories. The base chassis setup remains the same, with a 4-link suspension setup, 1.9″ Interco TSL SX Swamper tires, adjustable shocks, and waterproof electronics.
