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.
