If I had a 1/5 scale track anywhere near my house I would've had one 6 months ago, I cant justify the expense for just bashing when I have so many basher RC's now as is.


I retired from RC, now life is all about guns and long range shooting.

Hope he does give in but would understand if he declined, they are destructive to the track and pipes compared to anything 1/8-scale not to mention liability/injury potential would double. These beasts needs lots of room.

I want one, lol. But ~$2000 after selling the gas stuff and getting the electric conversion is steep. I could probably trade all my 1/8s in for one.

I don't like the looks of it. The 5b looks better. And don't want parasitic 4wd drivetrain loss. The telemetry is cool though.

This looks more my style

I disagree...4wd is the way to go for sure. I like Losi's idea of the truck but wish they wold sell tires more along the lines of MT.

No parasitic loss with a HV system

I also like the looks of the 5b - but would never get a 2wd one. If I were to buy a large-scale truck someday, I'd be interested in a Losi 5ive-B (if they ever make one) brushless.

you can have a losi 5iveB. a company in france makes one. comes with a new chassis and buggy body etc. http://www.ajaprod.com/#!__ajaprod-english/buggy-b4.0

gonna cost ya though. 1500 for losi.minus 350 for gas junk. plus a grand for brushless plus the aja kit. OH then u need a dual servo conversion and a few minor hopups :-) oh and its worth every penny!

Nice (and expensive) - I'm partial to the Baja 5b roll-cage/sand rail look myself - that's what I'd like to have in a 5ive-B. (Maybe I'll build one someday)

I wasn't bashing 2wd. I just stated a fact that a 4x4 drivetrain will lose more power to gear inefficiency than a 2x4 drivetrain. I love my 4x4 rc trucks, but if I had to have something with a weak 26cc motor, I don't want to lose any more power than absolutely necessary. It mainly carries over from my 1:1 hobby, where AWD has almost 2x the drivetrain loss.

I had a baja with a 29cc kit and all CF parts, and it was a nice basher. Just the right amount of power for a 2wd.
