How cool is this? The Losi 5IVE-T in three sizes. The 1/5 scale that we all know and love and the Kart version drivin by Mitch Guthrie Jr. and the 1/1 size driven by Pro 2 driver Rob “Fig” Naughton. Way to go Losi, for bringing R/C into the forefront of one of the most popular forms of racing here in the US. Our industry needs new consumers and we here at LSN believe this is one of the best way to get them, by showing off at full size sports and racing events.
Let the jokes begin….. “Get your Dog Balls! Get them here at TGN!” Yeah I know they have a funny name but these parts are no joke. This is an inovative product just released by Dogpile Racing. They were thinking out of the box on this one, check the details below.
RACING DOG BALLS FOR THE HPI BAJA 5B, 5T, & 5SC FROM DOGPILE RACING.
Captured steering ball ends for the HPI Baja 5B 5T and 5SC Allows you to capture the tie rod end in a crash and retain steering with both wheels to finish the race. Constructed of tuff corrosion resistent 303 stainless steel. Over sized balls to take up some steering slop found with stock ball ends. Unlike most hiem joints they allow for full articulation of the tie rod without binding in full suspension movement.
Well you may not be able to purchase your Losi 5IVE-T yet, nor by the parts and accessories but what we do have on sale is…..wait for it……a Key Chain (manufactured by Kool Deal Design). I know its not as exciting as the real deal 4WD 1/5 Scale but it is something you can start your early support for this new platform. Which is sure to be released soon. So for now, flow THIS link to get your own. Also makes a cheap Christmas gift for those who are betting for their own Losi 5IVE-T. Maybe a good April fools too.
Fits: Most engines using standard Zenoah or CY clutches in 1/5 Scale cars and trucks
Check out this beast of a clutch from Harm. This is a new item that came highly recommended from a customer of ours who had tried them in the HPI Baja 5SC with great success. LSN wil be installing this clutch in the near future in both the HPI baja and the Losi 5IVE-T to confirm fit and overall performance. Check out the feature list below.
Less wear through special big carbon and aluminum shoes.

Jeff Locas of Craftwerks-RC is known for posting up some great video of his trips to various R/C large scale races and events. Recently we both returned from the Hostile Bajafest where we had a great time with Kevin from TeamChase, Eddy from TeamFastEddy and the boys from Losi which came to announce the Losi 5IVE-T 1/5 scale 4WD to the world.
