Wanting to do something different and cant seem to find anything on it. Are there any long travel kits for the 5ive-t? I was looking at the FLM dbxl kit and was wondering if anyone has made one work or had any ideas on what could be made to work.

The suspension is what it is on a 5ive. The geometry of the suspension (a arms ets) give the most travel for the type of truck that it is. Keep in mind of the front drive train etc. the Hpi baja platform has more travel but there isn’t a factor of drive train in the front. The rear dog bones on a baja in my opinion get really close to the end of the drive cup and potentially come out. I’ve thrown many bones on the baja when I had it. So far no issues with that on the 5ive. So in my experiences it’s due to the travel that’s built into the truck. If you want more travel maybe check into a different platform. Just my opinion. Good luck and let us know whet you figure out. Maybe it could help us all.

I understand what your saying. But the baja suspension is what it is also, but companies like FLM etc all make extended arm kits as well as a dbxl which is 4x4. Just curious if anyone has made a kit or made something work. Suspension can always be improved.

The only thing I remember seeing may have been extended hubs. The baja has a huge amount of aftermarket parts. I have not noticed anything closer I that for the 5ive. Maybe kingmotor has something for the x2, or Rovan LT. Those are the knock offs of the 5ive. Another one is made by 30north. Just ideas when looking.
