The 1/10 scale Losi Baja Rey 4WD desert truck remains one of a kind, the only RC vehicle platform of its size with a true-scale suspension and chassis setup. The closer you look, the more details you find. When you see it in action, it’s easy to imagine living out your own wildest desert racing dreams.


Losi first released the Baja Rey in 2016. It quickly earned raves for incredible handling, speed, and overall performance. A new Baja Rey body style was introduced a few years later, but the platform itself proved so successful that it was unchanged — until now. For 2023, the Baja Rey not only gets another body update but also significant design improvements underneath. The Baja Rey 2.0 is an even better Baja beast, performing like a champion on all types of desert terrain from trails to sand washes.

Like the previous version, the foundation of the Baja Rey 2.0 remains its strong 3mm aluminum chassis plate with a 2.5mm upper deck. Whether you’re hitting the whoops, getting huge air, or just running wide open, the chassis keeps asking for more. From there, the platform now goes to the next level with new front gear box and rear axle designs, improved upper front arms and 4-link bars, an additional dampening shock, and more. Together, the changes mean easier maintenance, more tuning ability, and even greater strength and durability in critical areas.

As always, Losi has worked closely with Baja’s best brands to bring you the most scale RC desert truck possible. Take the new, officially licensed 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R body, for example. The Method Ford Raptor Baja Rey 2.0 captures the full-size truck’s aggressive styling with molded details that include the front grille, hood vent, fire extinguishers, driver helmets, interior, and more. The officially licensed BFGoodrich KR3 tires are mounted on officially licensed Method 101 wheels. And the dual spare tires are fully functional!

With LED lighting that includes a seven light pod system, Raptor grille lights, and a rear red LED light strip, the Losi Method Ford Raptor Baja Rey 2.0 wants to keep playing even after the desert sun sets. You can get started almost immediately, because it’s ready-to-run with a feature-packed Spektrum Smart DX3 radio system and brushless power system that can handle 2S or 3S LiPo batteries (not included) — for the power to fly across the desert at speeds of up to 50+ mph!
