I'd give this comment an extra thumbs up if I could. Going mini is cool but it feels like a missed opportunity to have it in the right size.
Watch the video it says why they did it.

How many can you find?

Also the whole set of product photos has an error with a missing part I think, should be 2 of something but only shows one in photos. Can you spot that error?
Wing tube

There is only so much you can do when scaling. I give them mad props for being able to stay as accurate as they have. They added servo mounts, ditched the LRM style trans, beefed up the bellcrank etc but those things kinda needed to be done for a rtr kit. You know these will be overpowered with brushless mini motors and bashed like modern rtr cars so I can’t blame them for trying to keep it looking original and making improvements at the same time. I can foresee some pro se arms, H arms and plastic tubs in the future as well as a jrxt and junior t if sales go well. I would encourage everyone to try to support them if they want to see more. Remember losi always said no rere stuff so this in itself is amazing to me.

Yep Wing tube. Not sure if error when doing photos or design choice.

Yeah, I have a 144001, with a 550. Its definitely fast for what it is. But as you said, its very limited. I was actually thinking about giving it away.

If you go to the parts list they show aluminum tubes as well as a plastic piece that assumably bolts to them to keep them from falling out like the old days. Maintains the look

Not one.. but three! These look amazing..they shrunk the Jrx2. I decided to cancel my Optima mid preorder and order all 3 of these instead. It’s going to look nice having these sitting next to the 1/10 scale versions.

Man, I wasn't in the market for another mini but these look so cool. I might have to get one just as a nice display piece.

Oh please- I have other fish to fry first. Like a proper pro front tower for the black body version to use rear shocks up front. :lol:

Wow. What a bullshite explanation was to why they didn't make a 1/10th scale version. Basically it's expensive and hard to have a 1/10 one so they made sure to keep it expensive and hard to have one.

I want one, but given it's scale I want parts to be interchangeable with my mini-B. It doesn't look like much of anything will interchange. If it was a 1/10 I would absolutely pick one up since at least 1/10th scale parts could be used.

Out of all the comments I have read both here and on Facebook, you are the first I’ve seen that wishes it was a body and tires thrown on a existing buggy just for looks

I’d say the chances are great of seeing a 1/10 jrx2 IF people buy the crap out of these. Losi has alway said NO to vintage, so to see them test the waters with this is incredible imo. If we show them the love, chances are we may see more. If it goes the way of the Worlds rere where they lose money and have to sell them at a loss then it’s assured they won’t bother with making a bigger one.

Back to this argument :roll:
There are plenty of "Vintage" JRX2's out there, get some parts and restore one.

217 Canadian dollars... Shops here will probably sell for 250.

Posted on a few sites at 169.99. Amain will ship it for a total of $223 USD, $285 Canadian. What body do you all prefer?

I would prefer a 10th scale as well.

I hope these are successful..they could easily do a mini JRXT now which is just as iconic as the JRX2. Hopefully they already have that in the works.
