Features

Purpose-Built Racing Chassis

Purpose-Built Racing Chassis

Unlike most so-called 1/5-scale racing buggies, this one comes with a chassis specifically engineered for competition. Inspired by the legendary TLR® 8IGHT™ platform, it is machined from hard-anodized, 5mm 6061-T6 aluminum and features a shorter wheel base for better handling. It also has milled pockets that save weight and allow enough flex for maximum traction under hard acceleration.

Heavy Duty Brakes

Heavy Duty Brakes

Stamped-steel rotors, combined with the heavy duty plates and pads, provide a sense of confidence and control that let racers drive harder into the turns and come to a stop more quickly. Front-to-rear braking bias can also be fine-tuned for evolving track conditions.

Dual-Steering-Servo Radio Tray

Dual-Steering-Servo Radio Tray

The radio tray can accommodate the most powerful 1/5-scale servos available. The Spektrum(tm) line of 1/5-scale servos (sold separately) are great choices. Their patent-pending Back EMF technology prevents servo fade and maintains maximum holding power for the duration of a receiver pack.

Racing Body and Wing

Racing Body and Wing

The cab-forward body and wing are inspired by those used on 1/8-scale racing buggies. The distinctive shape of the body moves aerodynamic pressure further forward on the car, which improves steering at speed. The wing has a removable wicker bill for adjusting rear downforce.

Aluminum Clutch Carrier and Center Diff Case

Aluminum Clutch Carrier and Center Diff Case

Harnessing the power of a high-output gas engine during an hour long main requires a race-bred drive system engineered to exacting standards. The 5IVE-B buggy has one. Both the clutch carrier and center-differential case are made of CNC machined aluminum that adds strength and durability as well as dissipates heat.

Hard-Anodized Aluminum Shocks and Shock Towers

Hard-Anodized Aluminum Shocks and Shock Towers

The hard anodized, 24mm shocks include bleeder caps that make them easier to build without sacrificing performance. The shocks also benefit from X-rings, shock boots and TiCN shock shafts for smooth, consistent performance. The shock towers offer multiple shock mounting options that give racers an abundance of tuning options for different track conditions.

One-Piece Glue-Style Wheels

One-Piece Glue-Style Wheels

The low rotational mass of these wheels allow the buggy to accelerate faster with less stress on drivetrain components.

Air Filter Designed Specifically for the 5IVE-B Buggy

Air Filter Designed Specifically for the 5IVE-B Buggy

Whatever 25-32cc engine you choose, the included air filter has been designed to let it breathe deep so your 5IVE-B buggy gets the monster horsepower it was built for.

Axle Boots

Axle Boots

The boots help keep grease in and dirt out so your axles last longer and require less maintenance.

Adjustable Toe and Anti-Squat Plates

Adjustable Toe and Anti-Squat Plates

These provide even more ways to tune the traction and overall performance of the chassis.

Spark Plug Protector

Spark Plug Protector

Designed for the rigors of competitive off-road racing, this protector will prevent spark plug damage from rollovers and other impacts.

Engine Brace/Mesh Plate

Engine Brace/Mesh Plate

The engine brace/mesh plate keeps gears in proper alignment under all conditions.

The 5IVE-B™ buggy is the 1/5-scale kit for hardcore racers who don't want to settle for anything but the best. The 5IVE-B has been designed from the ground up to the exacting standards of TLR® engineering and includes standard features you simply won't find in anything else.

Purpose-Built Racing Chassis 

Unlike lesser 1/5-scale basher-based buggies modified for racing the Team Losi Racing 5IVE-B has been designed for one purpose: Racing. The 5IVE-B features a 5mm 6061-T6 aluminum chassis specifically engineered for competition. The chassis plate has been inspired by the legendary TLR 8IGHT™ platform, featuring a shorter wheel base than others for improved handling. The chassis plate also has milled pockets that save weight and allow enough flex for maximum traction under hard acceleration.

Heavy Duty Braking System

The 5IVE-B features stamped-steel rotors and, when combined with the heavy duty plates and pads, provide a sense of confidence and control that allows racers to drive harder into corners and come to a stop more quickly. Front-to-rear braking bias can also be fine-tuned for evolving track conditions.

Dual-Steering-Servo Radio Tray

The 5IVE-B radio tray has been designed to accommodate the most powerful 1/5-scale steering servos available. This includes the Spektrum™ line of 1/5-scale servos with patent-pending Back EMF technology that prevents servo fade and maintains maximum holding power for the duration of a receiver pack.

Racing Body and Wing

The 5IVE-B body has been inspired by those used on 1/8-scale racing buggies, featuring a cab-forward design. This distinctive shape provides greater front down force which improves steering. The wing features a removable wicker bill for tailoring the rear down force to meet the precise track conditions.

Aluminum Clutch Carrier and Center Diff Case

The 5IVE-B features race-bred drive system engineered to exacting standards to harness the power of a high-output gas engine during the most-extreme conditions. The clutch and center differential are both CNC-machined aluminum, providing strength and durability while helping to dissipate heat, keeping things cool and providing more consistent performance throughout a run.

Hard-Anodized Aluminum Shocks and Shock Towers

The hard anodized 24mm shocks include bleeder caps that make them easier to build without sacrificing performance. The machined aluminum shock towers offer multiple shock mounting options that give racers an abundance of tuning options for different track conditions.

One-Piece Glue-Style Wheels

The low rotational mass of these wheels allow the 5IVE-B to accelerate faster with less stress on drivetrain components.

Air Filter Designed Specifically for the 5IVE-B Buggy

Whatever 25cc-to-32cc engine you install in your buggy the included air filter has been designed for maximum air flow to the carb while keeping dirt, grit and debris out of your engine. This translates into an air filter which provides maximum protection while unleashing the monster horsepower your engine was built for.

Axle Boots

Molded rubber boots on the CVAs and center drive train dog bones increase U-joint life. The boots help keep grease in and dirt out so your axles last longer and require less maintenance.

Adjustable Toe and Anti-Squat Plates

For maximum tuning the 5IVE-B includes adjustable front and rear A-Arm mounts. By swapping out inserts you will be able to fine tune your car by altering the toe-in, anti-squat to maximize the traction and overall performance of the chassis.
