5IVE-T Product Bulletin
It has come to our attention that a small quantity of the 5IVE-T trucks were assembled with a shorter than correct length screw to attach the front gear box/skid plate. Before operating your 5IVE-T please remove and check the two front most 6mm flathead screws from the bottom of the chassis and confirm they are ¾”/20mm long. If they are not please call Losi Service @ (909) 390-9595 Ext. 300 and you will be sent the longer screws. Under no circumstances should you operate the 5IVE-T with the shorter screws. We apologize for this error and thank you for your help correcting it.
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- and award- winning 8IGHT™ buggy 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 4WD glory.
These large-bore threaded, aluminum shocks feature oversized 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 the suspension movement over the roughest terrain.
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 extreme durability.
To ensure a long engine life and proper care, the air and fuel systems are served by a two-stage filtering system. 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 primer. 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 reliable.
The throttle servo performs more than just throttle duties, as 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 drivetrain. No plastic gears. These are the strongest and most durable type of gears available and would be expensive option items on other models.
The realistic cage provides added durability to the assembly, absorbing impacts as well as providing 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 individual four-piece body panels can be replaced in the event that they become 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.
