It’s here…. Losi 5IVE-T Penta Body by Hemistorm
After its debut at RCX Long Beach, there has been a big buzz in our industry about the “biggest” thing to hit the 5IVE-T scene so far, literally. This is the industries first aftermarket body option for this popular 1/5 SC and Hemistorm did not come at you with just a truck body. He threw us a curveball and gave us an open wheeled class 1 style buggy body for the Losi 5IVE-T. Pretty cool huh?!? We can’t wait to see these on the streets with different trim jobs and paint schemes. They are sure to open an whole new field of racing classes with this body.
Since its first release there was lots of questions of how much, when, etc etc. Well the answer is $250 and NOW. Peep all the details below and some never before seen shots of this amazing transformation.

It is with great pride that I announce the first HemiStorm Products upgrade for the Losi 5IVE-T: The HemiStorm Penta body.
Made from 2mm lexan this body isn’t only made to withstand hardcore driving, it also turns your shortcourse 5ive-t into a Class1/Truggy styled ride by simply swapping out the bodypanels. For months we have been designing and developing this product to ensure you enthusiasts now have an option to completely alter your ride. The main body consists of 5 pieces:
A front section, a roof section, two doors and the rear panel.
The front section, doors and rear section have all been detailed with louvre-styled “airscoops”. The front section encloses a part of the rollcage, emphasizing the open cage structure of the vehicle. The doors close all the way up to the rock guard, and together with the closed off front section the amount of debris entering the chassis will be kept to an absolute minimum. The roof section is reinforced with 8 barsections to ensure your paintjobs will keep unscratched as long as possible in case of a rollover.
Apart from the 5 body panels the kit will also be supplied with 4 extra lexan panels. The two larger more square ones are to be mounted on the side of the cage, the other two can be used as a deflector on the rear quarters. We do advise to take these off or trim these down for hardcore racers, as they are vulnerable to damage, at least untill the HemiStorm spare wheel mount is released. We include these panels as an extra, because we feel they complete the overall look we desired to create when developing, what we felt would be, the ultimate 5th scale vehicle.
The HemiStorm Penta is a bolt on, ready to install option for your Losi 5IVE-T. The stock Losi 5IVE-T hardware can be used to fasten the panels to your cage. All pieces come with a clear overspray film, and will be precut for your convenience. Alternative cuts to the body can be made if you wish to trim down certain sections, we merely provide what we thought would be the best look for this platform.
In the near future all the sections of the body will be available separately as well, making repairing of a sustained damage on the track or at your bash spot easier and budget friendly.
We expect the HemiStorm Penta in at TGN and all other stores early April. To preorder your Penta Bodykit for the Losi 5IVE-T choose the Add To Cart button above. TGN will be taking in orders for those who would like to reserve one in advance, to ensure you won’t miss out when these hit the shelves.
