Today Losi is a super brand, part of the Horizon Hobby family, but back in the days Gil Losi Jr. and his father “Pops” started Team Losi selling homemade aftermarket radio control parts and accessories at their local skatepark snack bar, that later turned into a mini hobby shop.
Over the next ten years they purchased the famous “Ranch Pit Shop” and dedicated over three years to develop their first race-dedicated RC vehicle: the now-iconic JRX2. The original JRX2, with its graphite chassis and 5-link suspension, pushed the boundaries of what a competitive RC racer should be and is known today as one of the most innovative cars of all time.
Paying homage to the innovations that have shaped the RC culture, the new Mini-JRX2 combines nostalgia with a touch of present day. This ultra-scaled down version of the vintage buggy is designed as a tribute to the memory of the original JRX2.
With the all-in-one box packaging, original trim schemes, and old-school handling, drivers can experience what it was like all those years ago and either make new memories or rekindle the old ones.
For years, racing enthusiasts demanded a re-release of the JRX2 buggy, the original vehicle that made Losi a worldwide force to be reckoned with, and now they get their wish in a 1/16th scale package. The Losi Mini JRX2 Buggy honors its roots by creating a mini buggy with a classic look and 21st-century performance.
With a 5-link rear suspension providing maximum grip in loose conditions, aluminum shocks, and era-specific ribbed front tires, and 4 row step pin rear tires, you get more from a Mini than ever before.
The new Losi Mini-JRX2 features a rear motor configuration like the original and three different trim schemes that mimic the original box art schemes of the era, all in a total ready-to-run package.
