Team Losi JRX-S type R is Soooo Cheap Now

Apparently Team Losi is getting out of the touring car business. That's good news for us since before they go they need to blow out their sedan. What a sedan it is! I built one for a friend and it is awesome. I have always wanted one for myself but I am poor/cheap. Now my poor/cheap side has no room for argument since Losi is blowing this thing out for $199!!! Yes under two hundred dollars. Many many people race them so there is no need to worry about spare parts. Pick up some of the easily broken parts when you get your kit and you will be set to dominate your local parking lot.
JRX-S Type R 4WD Racing Sedan Kit
Team Losi introduces its newest addition to the Team Losi Racing line—the JRXS Type R 4WD Racing Sedan Kit.
JRXS Type-R racing sedan. As the name implies, this is an evolution of the ultra successful JRXS that has won numerous National and International events the last few years. Team Losi bucked the trend of making another copycat version of the all-to-common sedan design with the narrow centrally weighted JRXS. The Type-R retains all the hi-tech features of the JRXS as well as the numerous small changes and design innovations that the team has developed over the last few racing seasons to further enhance the versatility, adjustability, efficiency and performance. Although the Type-R comes with a setup for foam tire racing, it still retains the unique ability to be quickly and easily converted for asphalt/rubber tire racing. The unmatched combination of cutting edge design, hi-tech materials and machined parts make the JRXS Type-R the most feature packed sedan chassis ever offered for pro-class competition.
