Hey guys and gals, I’m new to this forum.
I purchased a losi 5ive t 2.0 and a losi tuned exhaust.

Sounds great but after one tank of fuel the exhaust came loose. The weld on the exhaust hanger that bolts near the carb screw broke.

I can’t find a replacement part anywhere online and HB has not responded to my email yet.

anyone know a solution ?

thanks
Alex

Find a local welder.
Will get on that in the morning. Just sucks it lasted one run.
Contact horrizon and they will take care of you no questions asked.

And you bought a GREAT truck.
I’ll call them in the am. Probably a better idea then email. I love the truck! I had a losi nitro back in the day. This is my first step back into r/c it’s been 11 years!
I agree with niz honestly the pipe is good for noise. If you want a real performance pipe go on ddm. Tell horizon to take their shit pipe back and refund you
If they take it back I’d try another brand. The paint seems like it will flake off in no time.
If you bought it from Amazon just return it and buy bart or vrc.
I did buy it from Amazon, I’ll see if it’s refundable.
Thanks for the advice

I installed a losi pipe on a dbxl and it just seemed low quality. Your not getting the full potential of the pipe. Leave it as it is and demand a refund and don't get it welded. Return it and spend the extra 25-50 bucks on a good pipe

Send a picture and your invoice first to horrizon support team. They will quickly email you with case number. You can call after wards and give them case number and they will ship another one.

If bought from Amazon (ship and sold) just return it or get a replacement but return it.

I wrote to them through Amazon as it was sold by Amazon but shipped through horizon.

Bartolone, olimat, victory rc. All are good. Olimat will take a month or so. Go on daves discount motors and take a look
Will do, thanks !

On a side note would you recommend the spectrum S9110BL to replace the steering servo? It seems a little weak.

If its an issue with the servo you think they will replace it. If its just weak for your preference I'd go with the hilantronics brand on detroit performance rc.

@niz55 where I don't see vrc on dod?

No issues I just feel it’s weak. I guess reading up on how some had failed stock servos got me looking into upgrades.
Thanks for the suggestion.

I know I’m busting balls but what kill switch would you say to go with that will work with my dx5pro?

I kept thinking “what if “ last weekend at the r/c park in delray.
