SkoPod Losi 5IVE-T Brushless Conversion Kit

The kit is here and in stock NOW! Ready to ship to those brave enough to drop in some serious torque and speed into their Losi 5IVE-T. Going brushless in large scale if you don’t own batteries and chargers yet is not cheap but at least now it can be done easily. So if you own a Losi 5IVE-T and want to go electric then read more about this kit below.

RC Car Action Magazine came calling when they got word of this kit coming soon. SkoPod, LSN and TGN provided them with some exclusive video footage while testing this beast of an R/C. They used a good portion of our video on their Radio Control Show found HERE or watch embed down below. Notice the mistake where they called SkoPod SkyPod or would it be SkiPod? None the less we were happy to see our video highlighted like it was.

Press Release:

 

Own a Losi 5IVE-T and want to have pure raw power at the pull of the trigger? Or do you simply need a quit, clean and maintenance free power plant? If you answered yes to either of those questions then SkoPod has your answer. Their new billet aluminum mounting kit allows you to convert your gas guzzler Losi 5IVE-T into a brushless powerhouse. Their kit is designed to work with the V2 Castle Creation XL System that has already been proven to work great with their HPI baja kit.

Check out their beefy mounts, these things are built for strength but have been lightened and pocketed to keep the weight to a limit. You will also notice the motor is supported on both ends. Something they felt is important for two reasons. One is this motor is heavy and these 1/5 scale trucks take a serious beating and they wanted to keep that motor planted. The second reason is the stock gas engine being mounted in four places in the center of the chassis acts as somewhat of a chassis stiffener . The SkoPod kit uses these same 4 mounting holes to replace the chassis key structural element.
