Land Rover® Series III 88 Pickup 1/10 4WD Radio Control Car Kit pre order
This is the officially licensed Boom Racing BRX02 Land Rover® Series III 88 Pickup 1/10 4WD radio control car kit.
Commonly referred to as Series Land Rovers, it is arguably one of the world’s most iconic vehicles ever made. Produced from 1971 to 1985, the Land Rover Series III is unshowy, unpretentious, and classless; it is the car that you can arrive with at the Buckingham Palace, a rural farm, or an inner-city estate.
The Series Land Rover survived decades largely unchanged, serving farmers and foresters, construction and utility companies, explorers and scientists, armies and airforces – in fact, everyone who needed a good, honest vehicle that would do a good, honest job anywhere in the world. It was a beacon of safety and security too. It was favored by the military, the police, the fire service, NGOs, the UN, the Royal Palace, the Special Forces, and explorers alike. This iconic workhorse discovered new regions, won wars, and saved lives.
Regress to a simpler, classier time, and experience the ageless charm of this iconic vehicle. We’ve carefully studied the vehicle extensively and spent over a year designing and producing this scaled-down model kit. After years of waiting for such a model, the Boom Racing Land Rover Series III 88 radio control car kit has finally arrived.
What is the BRX02 88?
This all-new BRX02 88 is a new class of performance-oriented scale trail truck. It is a short-wheelbase version of the BRX02 109. It shares many similar drivetrain components with the proven BRX01 and BRX02 platforms. It has the same leaf spring suspension setup as the BRX02 109. The BRX02 88, however, has its own identity, with many new parts explicitly designed to work in this smaller chassis.
Multiple updates were made to the BRX02 88 to fit the shorter 280mm wheelbase Series III 88 body. These updates include a direct heavy-duty steel driveshaft between the BCF2™ transmission and the B2X™ transfer case for improved drivetrain efficiency and a battery tray ready to be integrated with a full-size servo winch. Front suspension travel has been improved with an updated aluminum chassis rail.
Even though it is much smaller than the BRX02 109, don't expect anything less from us. The chassis layout of this BRX02 88 is well thought through from the ground up. We've designed this short-wheelbase chassis to include all of the most desired trail truck features, fitting a two-speed transmission, optional overdrive (by swapping t-case gears), 2WD/4WD transfer case, or dig transfer case, an optional full-size internal servo winch with routing cable, an optional LED light kit, an optional rock light set, all with a full interior installed.
The BRX02 88 includes the narrow BRX80 Scale PHAT™ axles to give the truck the correct scale appearance. It has the B2X™ anti-torque twist aluminum transfer case that is identical to the original BRX02 transfer case but has the additional feature of being overdrive ready. A pair of 6mm aluminum frame rails for superior strength, chassis rigidity and predictable handling. A stainless steel ESC mounting plate next to the front motor replaces the carbon fiber at the rear end of the chassis of the BRX02.
To re-create the original Series III appearance, the body sits slightly lower with 80mm KUDU™ scale shock dampers, and the front and rear bumpers were changed to the Series III design. The front bumper includes space for a fairlead, and the rear bumper includes left and right-side crossmember grab handles. The front and rear skid plate sliders are designed with maximum ground clearance in mind and molded in nylon for added strength and to keep the CG lower.
One of the main challenges in designing this scaled-down Series III was to keep the wheels tucked inside the body at all times while having good steering ability with a full leaf spring setup. This was achieved by using the BRX80 Scale PHAT™ axles, plus an all-new XT502PIN pin wheel hub that is narrower than the XT500 pin hub.
The other challenge was to figure out a way to relocate the steering servo. Series IIIs had quite a significant recessed grill which interfered with the way the BRX02 Leaf chassis is set up. We designed a new servo mount and moved the servo under the motor, and by flipping the BCF2™ transmission motor mount upside down we created enough space for the servo and added a good amount of suspension travel.
The chassis is fitted with our new SLR™ 1.9” steelie beadlock wheels that come with scale wheel caps with a tool included for easy installation, as well as new scale screws that were specifically designed for these wheels, with a tool included. The wheels are paired with a set of Mileage Classic™ 1.9” scale tires in Gekko™ Black (super soft) compound. This soft and tacky rubber is our proprietary compound which is used in many of our tires and is formulated for crawler performance and durability in rough terrains.
The original BRX02 concept
The BRX02 is our top-of-the-line scale performance off-road chassis. It is the result of continuous development and improvement of the highly-rated BRX01, developed in close collaboration with many scale hobbyists around the world. You can expect to build an ultra-realistic R/C model vehicle that gives you great performance straight out of the box.
It shares the same drivetrain with the BRX01 – a top-quality robust driving system that has made a name for itself in the industry for being durable and efficient. At its core is the small footprint BCF2™ transmission with 2-speed, hi-lo remote shifting ability. The transfer case sits on a high-clearance skid plate that lifts the belly up for fewer overhangs.
The BADASS™ heavy-duty front and rear steel axle shafts and KUDU™ center CVD driveshafts are durable, smooth, and capable of high articulation angles. KUDU™ driveshafts are rebuildable and have become the standard for all future Boom Racing vehicles. The BRX80 Scale PHAT™ axles use our proprietary AR44 heavy-duty steel triangular keyed bevel helical cut 30/8T diff gears, with the same but reversed cut gears in the rear axle to cancel out almost all of the torque twist from the drivetrain.
The leaf spring suspension with KUDU™ 80mm scale shocks gives a realistic ride height to the Series III. Optimized for scale performance, it features a billet aluminum cylinder body for durability, steel shock shaft with titanium nitride coating, plastic pivot retainers (replaceable) for smoother swivel movements, high degree pivot angle for high-angle articulation, double X-Ring oil seals, and comes with cylinder and friction seals to prevent leaks and contaminants from entering. The bump stop provides an additional level of bottoming control, stainless steel pivot balls for stainless, corrosion-resisting pivot rotation, and an aluminum pivot ball tool included for hassle-free maintenance.
The leaf spring unit has a master leaf with three graduated leaves for suspension stability and adjustability. You may use up to four leaves for adjusting the rebound rate. Anti-wrap bars attached to the front and rear axles prevent axle twists, and realistic shackle bolts are included for the scale realism factor.
The chassis is ready for an internal servo winch by installing the optional winch mount kit [BRD90110036]. A JX waterproof metal gear mini servo for remote 2-speed shifting is included.
All hardware included is 12.9-grade alloy steel nickel plated screws, and rubber ball bearings are included.
Is this kit waterproof? The short answer is yes! The BRX02 88 is capable of being submerged in water. The receiver box is designed to be fully waterproof with rubber seals all around to protect your receiver from water. We've included a fully waterproof JX high-voltage mini shift servo for the BCF2™ 2-speed transmission. The axle gears are fully greased, with extra silicone and black graphite grease provided for maintenance and protection against water corrosion. Add your own waterproof electronics to make it fully waterproof.
The Land Rover body
Our interest and passion in Land Rover began many years ago. We meticulously studied the original designs of this classic iconic Series III off-road vehicle; our designs were inspected for accuracy and approved by Land Rover in multiple stages.
This is a full hard body molded with mostly ABS plastics. We constructed the body using the same design concept as how they were built in the factories back in the day; using multiple body panels to build the complete body.
You have the option to build both the hardtop and the convertible. We leave this for you to decide. The parts to build either style are all included. The realistic hinged windscreen is robust and can be folded down just like its 1:1 counterpart. The bulkhead vent flaps can flip open and stay in place when the cabin gets too hot ;) The hood, doors, and tailgate are all hinged and can open and shut. The engine air intake has both right and left openings; you can choose to build a diesel or gasoline engine Series III by picking the wing panel with the intake.
The body includes a fully molded ABS plastic interior, complete with a dash, floor panel, adjustable seats for different figure sizes, gear stick, hi/low stick, 2WD/4WD stick, handbrake, pedals, clear windows, wipers, door handles.
Rubber side mirrors are provided for durability and can be mounted in two different positions; you can choose the mirror position by the model year of the truck. The mirror plates and light buckets are molded chrome plastics.
The body includes a stainless steel front radiator wire grill and an engine air intake wire mesh.
It comes with complete LED light buckets (ready for 13 LEDs); two main headlights, two front side lights, two front amber signal lights, two rear stop lights, two rear amber signal lights, one reverse light, one rear fog light, and one license plate light. An optional KUDU™ LED Light Module System is available.
A key with the classic Land Rover emblem is included for the door opening.
The body comes complete with scale screws (tools included), a decal sheet, and an instruction manual.
License Plates / VIN Numbers and how it works
All BRX02 88 kits come with a pair of unique classic UK license plates that are numbered with matching chassis numbers, on a first-come-first-served basis. All BRX vehicles have VIN numbers. This unique pair of car numbers and VIN numbers can be used to register the vehicle on the Boom Racing website. Any future events such as recalls, maintenance-related issues, and promotional offers including priority pre-orders and giveaways will be notified if registered. For example, we have sent out free maintenance items to registered owners to keep their trucks running smoothly.
Once registered, vehicle logs will be kept. New vehicle owners will be able to view the histories of their pre-owned vehicles. Vehicle ownership can be transferred from the registered owner to the new owner directly on our website.
