Losi 5IVE-T vs HPI Baja 5sc

LSN Compares the Losi 5IVE-T to the HPI Baja 5SC in length, width, height and weight.


LSN has received several request to explain the differences between the Losi 5IVE-T and the HPI Baja 5SC. In time we will cover more details about how each truck differs but we wanted to start with the exterior of the two trucks and cover the basics. We decided to get both of these trucks out and take some photos to give you an up close view of how these two truck differ in these areas, Length, Width, Height and Weight. You will also see the overal profile of these two trucks and how they differ.

Please understand this is not a comparison as to which truck is better. We are simply showing you the scale of the two trucks because we know so many of you have seen the popular HPI Baja 5SC and not so many have seen the Losi 5IVE-T. Below is the video where you can get all the details. We will also list the specs below for those of you with short attention spans.


Our next video will cover the tires and how they differ from the HPI tires. As for interchangeable parts, other than the engine and some engine accessories like HP filters etc the tires are the only think on the Losi 5IVE-T that will interchange with HPI Baja’s.

    Do you guys know if the wheels / tires on the 5ive T interchangeable between the baja style?

    • mark says:

      Yes and no. My next video will explain a little more on that. The rim is the same as 5T fronts but there is clearance issues with most tires out there. Mostly just some body rub issues that are not that big of a deal.

    Good info cool video.

    • mark says:

      Thank you Mr Chase. You guys do some great videos as well. I will be doing a blog post on all the good video content out there and will be linking to your stuff again.

  3. Great article as always LSN. I have been waiting to see how these two monsters stack up next to each other. If I had to make a choice the Baja 5T is still my favorite looking gasser, but the 5ive-T takes it over the 5SC.

    • mark says:

      Thanks. Glad it helped you get the idea od the two next to each other. If I had a 5t body I would have put one of those next to it. Next video. ;)

    Holy cow. The losi weighs a ton. My baja 5B is 24 lbs, what a huge difference. That thing is gonna take off like a brick.

  7. Tom Kuhlman says:

    I have a bad feeling that if the 5ive T is anything close to all the hype that’s buzzing around about it, the HPI Baja line is in for a rude awakening. Think the Guys at HPI better be coming out with a 4×4 gasser REAL SOON!!!!!!

    Fully sick, 5ive T it is but then again 3 diffs means 3 times more headaches and expense.
