Looking at all their recent releases........it's all about off-road right now with Losi.

I think most of the on-road community is wondering the same thing.

I got a JRX-S Type R just before they discontinued it late 2010. It's a fantastic TC and to discontinue it with nothing to replace it Doesn't make sense to me. I don't expect to see any on-road cars from Losi/TLR anytime soon but you never know, they kept the 22 top secret until they announced it.

Hey,

Tbh I think the Jrxs was the downfall of touring cars for Losi, the XXX-S was a much better car and they should of followed along that line rather than going for the new concept that was the JRXS.

I don't know about the US but the jrxs was a flop in the UK.

Would love to see a new Losi for touring cars tho, a carbon version of the xxx-s would be very cool.

The prototype XXXS was stunning.



That's be easy to make into a Lipo friendly chassis and I'd have one right away.

I love the xxxs and still think it's a very competitive chassis. Like many I wish they would release an updated version similar to the prototype. It's the 1 chassis I will never part with. if all else fails....I know I can rely on it.
