Xmod Hummer versus Team Losi Mini-LST Monster Truck

Uhm I thought this was an Xmods site?
Of course this section is still dedicated to Xmods but I started to think about some of the new RC trucks being released and thought a comparison might be a fun way to introduce the competition so to speak.

The Team Losi Mini-LST Monster Truck is not available from your local Radio Shack and is aimed at the more professional RC market as the MRSP is $299 but I was able to find it for $199 at Atomic Mods

So what does $199 get you and how does it compare to the value of the Xmod?
That's exactly what I was wondering when I started all this so lets start with the finished cost of the Xmod Hummer to bring it into the same league as the competitor's offering.

  • Base Xmod Evo Hummer Kit
  • XMOD Evo Truck - 4-Wheel Drive Upgrade
  • XMOD Evo Open Bearing Set
  • 4 AAA Ni-MH 900mAh and Charger
  • XMOD Evo Truck - Custom Suspension And Drop Upgrade
  • XMOD Evo Stage 2 Motor Kit

So the total base cost is $127.94 and it gives us an Xmod Hummer that is a closer match to what the competitor is offering as stock!

The Mini-LST is a Ready to Run 1:18 Scale Monster Truck and is the latest innovation from the engineers at Team Losi, who managed to pack the LST’s features into a mini monster truck. The result is a mini monster truck that’s bigger, more powerful and more durable than any you’ve ever driven. Like it’s big brother the LST, the Mini-LST is the Super Truck among the mini-truck crowd. And from the living room to the lawn, you can drive it nearly anywhere your imagination can take you. The Truck comes in three colors Red, Blue and Green

Looks like a pretty complete package and decided to order one to see exactly how it compares to my Xmod Hummer, now to be fair this is a 1:18 scale and the Hummer is 1:28 so this truck will be close to twice the size of the Hummer! A smaller version called the Micro-T is 1:36 and who knows I may order one of these also in the near future. I ordered it from Atomic Mods on April 2nd and It arrived on Friday April 13th with a bill of $40.22 for GST and customs charges.
