Bigger. Faster. Stronger. The 1/5-scale Losi® 5IVE-T™ 4WD Off-Road Racing
Truck is the closest thing to a full-size vehicle in realism, performance
and experience. It features a 4WD drivetrain based on the racing-winning,
award winning 8IGHT platfrom, Spektrum™ telemetry receiver, installed
sensors, and 1/4-scale servos. And since it's a Bind-N-Drive™ vehicle, you
complete it with the DSM® transmitter of your choice. There's really nothing
like driving an RC truck as big as this. Come take it for a spin in all its
These large-bore threaded, aluminum shocks feature over-sized
7mm shock shafts designed to stand up to the punishment of 1/5-scale action.
The threaded adjusters allow for fine-tuning of the ride you are looking to
achieve. The extra high volume of fluid is essential in controlling
thesuspension movement over the roughest terrain.(Far right: 1/5-scale and a
standard 1/10-scale shock shaft)
This is no ordinary chassis. It is based on the award winning,
race-proven 8IGHT™ Platform. It has been designed to produce the best
performance possible. The chassis plate is constructed of 5mm aircraft-grade
aluminum and has been machined to save weight and add strength to provide
To ensure a long engine life and proper care, the air and fuel systems
are served by a two-stage filtering systems. The air must pass through two
different foam filters designed to block as much dust and debris as possible
while still maintaining proper flow. The fuel system features a secondary
filter that serves multiple purposes. One, to keep the fuel pickup in the
gas mix no matter the orientation of the vehicle and as a filter to block
larger debris and a secondary bullet style filter to catch anything else.
The engine comes preinstalled with a high-volume muffler and features an
electronic ignition, easy adjust carburetor with a built-in choke and fuel
primmer. An added bonus is the machined oval inserts that match the chassis
cutouts precisely to locate the engine for proper gear mesh.
The finned aluminum clutch mount adds strength and durability and
provides unmatched heat dissipation for increased longevity of the 8,000 RPM
clutch. Since it is enclosed, it prevents dirt and debris from entering and
fouling the parts. The oversized bearings handle greater loads and are more
The throttle servo performs more than just throttle duties it is also the
main source for braking power. This heavy-duty large-scale servo has the
power to bring the 5IVE-T to a stop thanks to the functionality of the bias
adjustable dual-disk brakes. No 1/10-scale throttle servos here.
The core of the electronics system is the SR3300T receiver that is
powered by Spektrum 2.4GHz DSM technology and has telemetry built in. The
5IVE-T comes prewired with sensors for engine temperature, speed and
receiver battery voltage. Just add a surface DSM transmitter like the
Spektrum DX3S, and all of this information will be transmitted back to the
driver for real-time vitals of the 5IVE-T.
These monster wheels are true beadlock wheels with rings on both the
inner and outer bead of the tire. With the amount of power the 5IVE-T
produces and the sheer size of these tires, these wheels will provide a
stable platform for the all-terrain tires. Many popular 1/5-scale tires will
mount right on these beadlock wheels.
The 5IVE-T uses nothing but precision cut or formed, heat treated steel
gears throughout the drive train. No plastic gears. These are the strongest
and most durable type of gears available and expensive option items on other
The realistic cage provides added durability to the assembly absorbing
impacts as well as a solid base for the modular body. The unique design
allows the body and cage to be removed with only four screws and four body
clips in seconds.
The four-piece body individual panels to be replaced in the event that it
becomes damaged so an entire body does not need to be purchased to get the
vehicle back to the factory look. Clear panels and stickers are sold
separately to create your own look or retain the factory schemes.
