Since 1980 the Losi® brand focus has been racing. In the early days of R/C racing, the standard hobby grade R/C car was not meant for racing and could not survive any type of harsh landing or impact. The Losi brand started selling option parts for these same cars that would help them survive the abuse of an off-road racetrack. This led to a surge in R/C racing popularity and its was not long before Losi put its focus on developing its first R/C car the JRX2. The rest is history.
