Killer RC has something new coming….


Killer RC shows us a sneak peak of something new

Killer RC has something new and fresh being added to their already hot Losi 5IVE-T product line and HPI Baja product line. A tipster sent in this link to the Killer RC forum today and from what the forum says the new item is on the left.  Not much other news but I guess it could be a super cool light control of some sort or a new and improved kill switch or who knows, a flying machine adapter for your Losi 5IVE-T? Either way you can bet we will report on it and TGN will be carrying it ASAP.

Meanwhile browse their informative forums HERE or check out the current Killer RC Losi 5IVE-T product line HERE or the HPI product line HERE.

First person to post the winning answer below in the comments to what this can be will win a free LSN T-Shirt. Please post as much detail about it as you can and the one with the most detail and who posts first will win. Only one winner will be chosen.

Play Time at the TGN Headquarters

Having some fun with the Losi 5IVE-T Brushless indoors

Some times all the hustle and bustle around our shop we just have stop and enjoy. So we strapped a couple fresh 4s Kypom packs in our newly brushless SkoPod converted Losi 5IVE-T. It was late and dark outside so we decided to use our back half of the shop (where our new indoor track is going in) as a playground for this beast of a machine.

I was driving the Losi while SkoPod was filming. In order for my blind eyes to hit the small ramp I was back behind the takeoff point so it was difficult to adjust for my landings as I had limited view. But it was amazing what this truck can do in such a short distance. The control we had in the air via brake and throttle was equivalent to the crazy 1/10 stuff out there. It was a trip to be able to throw a 1/5 scale electric around like that.

The control and power in a converted brushless large scale is simply amazing. It may not be everyones cup of tea but man is it fun. The potential for a serious track machine is beyond anything in gas. It could really make for a great show on a race track.

Well enough said here… watch the short video below and enjoy. Expect more of this shenanigan behavior from TGN in the near future.


Pro-Line Blockade 1/5 Scale Tires – Coming Soon


Pro-Line Blockade Tire for 1/5 Scale HPI Baja and Losi 5IVE-T

Check out the new posted on RC Car Action.

This is good news for all racers of large scale HPI baja’s or Losi 5IVE-T’s. As like all scales of racing the more options for different compounds and track conditions the better. We are happy to see Pro-Line continuing the efforts in large scale racing. Thank you for the new choices Pro-Line.

Available soon at TGN Distributing.


We just got this sneak peak photo of a new Blockade tire from Pro-Line Racing. This one is designed to fit the HPI Baja 5SC and 5T and it will also fit the rims on the Losi 5IVE-T. Foam inserts are not included so you’ll have to use the ones out of your stock tires. Special webbing inside the tire increase durability and traction. The tire compound that will be used is to be determined.

New tools for the Losi 5IVE-T and HPI Baja

New Tools for your Losi 5IVE-T and/or HPI Baja

Soon LSN will be doing a video review of some of our commonly used tools for our large scale cars and trucks. For the moment I will list some of the newest items that just came in at TGN Distributing as well as some of our favorites.


Check out ALL the tools TGN offers by browsing the tool section HERE.


New Large Billet Wheel Wrenches

Comes in two lenghts, one compact that fits in a small tool box and the big kahuna for maximum torque. It also has the conveient feature of a plug wrench on the end. Priceless item to have around any large scale. Prices range from $12.99 – $19.99.

HPI Baja sizes: long HERE or short HERE

Losi 5IVE-T size: long HERE  or short HERE


Pocket Electric Screw Driver

I am not sure how anyone EVER went without these tools. Gone are the days of lugging around a full size power drill. These are a MUST HAVE for any large scale car or truck owner. Especially great for the 4 cage screws on the Losi 5IVE-T, makes removal QUICK! Check them out HERE.

Hex Power Bits

These are the best.  Inser these into smaller hand tools with interchangeable tips or use them in your drill or power screw drivers.

2″ long HERE or short 1″ long HERE



Hex Extension

Need that extra reach? The 6″ and 12″ extension by Milwaukee will come in very handy at times. Especially on the HPI Baja were sometimes you have to get the tool between a cage or chassis part. The 12″ version is HERE and the 6″ is HERE.

Keyless chuck for your Compact Hex Driver

This is a useful item that is often difficult to find at your local hardware store. It turns your compact power hex driver/screw driver into a drill. Allowing you to insert standard drill bits to drill out stubborn screws or drill your new shock pistons. Very useful and simple tool. Find those HERE.

Small Hole Drilling Adapter

Can’t get your small drill bits inside your monster hand drill or drill press chuck? Check out this little life saver. Works great for drilling small holes in shock pistons. It securely holds a #99 (0.0051″) to #60 (0.040″) wire gauge drill bit. Get yours HERE.

Thin head open end 13mm wrench

These little guys are strong and very useful on those pesky front and rear shock mounts on the Losi 5IVE-T. They allow you to hold the mount down while using a second wrench or socket driver to remove the nut holding onto the shock end. Available HERE.

Metric Cushion T-Handled Hex Wrenches

These have been one of our most popular items for some time now. One of my favorite things about these that we have never really promoted is that if they are ever showing wear and you want a fresh tip. Just take them to the sander and clean up the very end…new wrench in seconds. 9″ long versions HERE and shorter HERE.



The Stand.

Ya got to have a stand for these big and heavy 1/5 scales. TeamFastEddy has what you need. Check out the features of this stand HERE and add the Losi 5IVE-T top HERE.

 The Pit Mat

Last but not least, ya got to have a cool pit mat. Place your Losi 5IVE-T or HPI Baja on a nice clean surface every time. Check out the Proline HERE and the JConcepts HERE.

TeamChase Losi 5IVE-T Steering Setup Exposed

TeamChase Steering Set-Up for the Losi 5IVE-T

Check this out. TeamChase is on fire this week. Showing off yet another new Losi 5IVE-T products in the video below.

There are a couple issues with the Losi 5IVE-T steering set-up. One of them mentioned in this video below talks about the steel and steel concerning possible binding. TeamChase fixes this issue buy using bushings and bearings with this new strong set-up.

The other issue is the stock hardware included with the truck uses these special made screws that have a very short threaded section. The short thread does not even allow for the full capture within the plastic part they screw into. The forces and vibration in the steering of this large scale truck creates a lot of issues and one of them being right on these screws. It’s common to see these screws strip or pull completely out of the plastic arm they screw into. Not only leaving you with no steering and often a lost screw but the plastic is ruined and will no longer allow for the screw to stay in place. An expensive and time consuming fix. The TeamChase custom long hardware and nylock nuts fixes this problem perfectly.


We are excited to see this product being debuted by Team Chase and if you’re interested in talking more about it check out THIS thread on RCLargeScale.


If your interested purchasing this product and want to be notified when it’s available please check out the TGN product page HERE.




TeamChase shows off the No Flex Losi 5IVE-T Chassis

The TeamChase Losi 5IVE-T No Flex Chassis


It seems the chassis flex on the Losi 5IVE-T has been all the talk lately. It’s not an issue affecting everyone nor is an issue that keeps someone from enjoying their new 1/5 scale. But for racers and the serious driver, tuning the suspension set-up and eliminating any unwanted flex is key. So for those drivers, the large scale specialist at TeamChase has come to the rescue with their No Flex chassis for the Losi 5IVE-T.

This is more of a spy shot than anything and the products details as far as price and ETA are not available yet. But you can bet LSN will keep you posted once we know more.

You can watch the product thread and post your questions HERE on RCLargeScale.

Bartolone Racing Losi 5IVE-T Engine Mesh Plate -Spy Shot

Bartolone Racing Losi 5IVE-T Mesh Plate

Check out these spy shots that Billet posted on RCLargeScale of the newest part coming from Bartolone Racing. Looks like its going to be called a mesh plate which appears to create additional strength and stiffening between the engine and center differential area.

Owners of the Losi 5IVE-T have been complaining about the flex in the chassis which is allowing the metal spur gear to hit the clutch housing near the bearing that supports the pinion gear. This part looks like it will possibly relieve this issues. Which is sure to make 5IVE-T owners happy.

The images were originally posted HERE on You can find the product and watch for its availability on TGN HERE.
