I have all of the old Losi cars except RTRs or Street Weapon.
My JRX2 came in a plain white box with JRX2 printed on it.
Did the H arm conversion, Pro conversion, truck conversion...
Still have all that stuff shoved in a big box too.
Got chassis of all types hangin on a pegboard. 10 or 12 of em.
Really want to put the 5 link back together again!
Think I even have some orange 5 spoke wheels around.

Yep they are that outdated. I remember those cars the original Jrx-2 was my first buggy was alot of fun, but the new cars are totally different.

Default JRX 2

I ran one of these when I first started in RC. The newer cars have more responsive suspensions, more efficient transmissions (less gears, lower mounting, less friction), better material for chassis, improved slippers, etc.

The five link was unique and on some tracks it worked really well. Todays tracks are hybrid off roads that are smoother with no grass and such as "back in the day". Good luck.

its prety bad, when I sat and built a car from memory from PARTS last night. Now there's a JRX2 with lightend chassis and motorplate here... JRX-Pro, and a JRX-T... if I had bearings I could build another car... and still have 2 or 3 spare chassis around.... I cant imagine a transmission any smoother than the JRX transmission after I did some work to them,I mean,they were SO frigging smooth after some dry lube in them....

I still race a Losi XX in modified and it's no slouch, they never have been. I race it against guys that have been to titles here in Oz and have been in the "A" main or "B" and it can stick with them with some smooth driving. Only two drivers I was never able to finish in front of and they both drive highly modded B4's. It has finished in front of other B4's and B2's and not due to them breaking down or not finishing races.

The car you drive is only as good as the driver. Give a good driver a original RC10 Gold Tub and give a novice driver a B4 and I know which one should win
