SkoPod Brushless Losi 5IVE-T Kit Tested
SkoPod Brushless 5IVE-T Kit Test Video
TGN Press Release
We had the pleasure of helping SkoPod do some bash testing on their prototype Brushless Conversion Kit for the Losi 5IVE-T 4WD. We decided we would share some of our video footage prior to the product release so all you electric fanatics have something to look forward to. So far everything tested well and we had no issues. Including motor temp etc.
We used the trusted Castle Creations XL Motor & ESC. We had the “punch” turned down on the ESC in order to save our battery packs and the truck still had a lot of low end grunt. Lots more testing to be done with different gears and ESC settings but it was a great day to run a brushless Losi 5IVE-T. Having the 4WD made the torque and top speed found on electrics even more useable than on the HPI Baja we own. More information on this kit like pricing and availability will be updated on LSN and TGN soon.

The SkoPod team could not turn up at a bash session without a 62cc monster so they put some time on their new Losi 5IVE-T conversion with a 62cc installed. They are expected to have a pipe and a install kit available soon but for now they are testing overal performance with this engine and based on their showing at the TeamChase compound and this bash session I believe this will be a great option for the power hungry large scale drivers.
We also tested several other products on this day on a total of three Losi 5IVE-T’s. In our shop truck we tested the DarkSoul Billet Open Clutch Carrier which performed flawlessly as it has for the past few months. We tested both the TeamChase Titanium Steering and King Pins which as expected worked great. Also tested was the RadioPost 2.4 radio system. TGN has considered offering this radio to our customers but we insisted on using it first hand before we expected our customers to do so. So far we have tested it at Dunetoberfest, TeamChase and several bash sessions and we are very pleased. We expect to stock these radios at TGN very soon.
