    What battery to use for losi 5ive-T?

    I just ordered my losi 5ive-T and I am wondering what battery I should use. I know there is two popular Lopo options but I can’t remember them. Is there any other good options? Is there any nimh options available? I’d rather not go Lipo or buy a new charger.

    Losi 5ive models vs DBXL-E

    Lately I have been kicking around the idea of getting a Losi 5th scale. I would do mostly on-road speed. Itseems to me that the differentials and axles are very strong for 8s to 12s usage. Am I wrong? What is the key difference between the models (considering I'll run electric) which has...
