Losi: 5IVE-T 2.0 1/5 4WD Short Course Truck with Spektrum 6200A Rx

Losi has just updated the legendary 5IVE-T 2.0 BND (Bind-N-Drive). The 1/5-scale off-road giant is powered by a Zenoah G320 32cc pull-start, air-cooled engine that has been built specifically for this truck and features massive torque necessary in handling heavier “Big scale” vehicles like this. It allows these 4WD behemoths to handle like pure adrenaline machines with incredible feel and precision. The updated chassis layout reduces the front drive shaft angle for improved durability and increased 4WD balance and the new rack style bellcrank steering assembly makes for easy Ackermann changes and overall improved steering geometry.
