Trail-time Classic: Boom Racing's BRX02 Land Rover Series II 88 Station Wagon

By: Tim Gluth

If you're looking for an ultra-realistic trail rig kit, Boom Racing's BRX02 Land Rover Series II 88 Station Wagon (BR8009) looks like it has the makings of a true show stopper. A followup to their BRX02 Land Rover Series III kits, this version shines a spotlight on the Land Rover Series II bodystyle.

This hard-bodied kit offers scale R/C fanatics the opportunity to built a unique replica of an off-roading classic. With its ladder-frame chassis, leaf spring suspension, and narrow tires and wheels, the chassis of the BRX02 Land Rover Series II is set to tackle your next R/C trail adventure. Its B2X transmission offers anti-torque twist functionality and is ready for overdrive gears if you're looking to get even more crawling performance out of your rig.

On the outside, you can build your BRX02 Land Rover Series II to be a station wagon or an open-air convertible. The detail on the body panels not only looks true to scale, but it also offers tiny details like adjustable bulkhead flaps, a mesh grille, and LED-ready light buckets.

To complete your build, you'll need to supply a radio system (transmitter and receiver), battery, charger, ESC, stering servo, a 540 or 550-size motor, assembly tools, and paint.
