Losi shows off the 5IVE-T for thousands to see at LOOR in Las Vegas


Losi 5IVE-T at the Lucas Oil Off Road Las Vegas

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.

To make this event even better it looks like Rob “Fig” Naughton took home second place. Great ending for a special event.

Dogpile Racing Dog Balls Now Available at TGN





Part # : DPR101

Product Link: HERE



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.


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.


  • 2 x inner balls (short)
  • 2 x outer balls (long)
  • Dogpile racing sticker


See installation video below.

This item fits: Baja 5b, 5t, and 5sc

Ultimate Speed Run POSTPONED *UPDATED*

Ultimate Speed Run POSTPONED




Due to not wanting to give in and hopping and praying for good weather the ISC staff will be at Auto Club speed way Sunday Nov. 13 in hopes we can make the event happen.

Come on out and we will do our best weather permitting to continue the tradition of the Ultimate Speed Run!

According to the latest weather reports the chance of rain is very high for the entire weekend of the ISC Ultimate Speed Run.


With so many people coming from out of town the ISC has decided to postpone the event.


The likely date will be February 11 or 12, 2012  but will have to be approved by Auto Club speedway before we can make it official.


The ISC is very sorry for any inconvenience this will cause but the risk of a rained out event is too high.


Thank you for your support, we look forward to seeing you all in February 2012~!
