What’s up fellas!

I’m looking to do a few upgrades

so far i have already ordered a new radio Futaba 4PV so I can properly operate a kill switch, Turtle Racing air box with the Hpi filter and Outerwears for both filter and pull start

I would like to upgrade the exhaust, the engine is a stock 29cc 4 bolt..

Can someone please recommend one that will work with the stock engine and where to purchase.

Also the stock tires seem good, but I would like to find something better. I mainly play in dirt fields and grassy fields not a lot of pavement. What are good options ?

This morning I received confirmation that the Bartolone fits the 2.0. I contacted Bartolone and asked: Does the Bartolone 32cc Tuned Pipe fit in the NEW Lost 5iveT 2.0? Their response "Yes Sir." Hope this helps

Nah they will fit right in (y) 2.5mm hex driver + 1 phillips screw driver(y)driver
But you must center the servo before you attach the servo horn:unsure:
Must also set end pionts (travel)

you will need the metal mounts for the steering servo.
DDM has the Bartalone pipe for the 320 engine in the 2.0 losi 5t.

Ok, so I bought a used Losi 5IVE-T RTR AVC: 1/5th 4WD SCT RTR.
The guy i bought it from told me it was the 2.0 edition.
The deal was for $580 so I jumped on it before doing any research
Turns out it’s just a regular 5ive t, I was tempted to sell it and just order a new 2.0 edition but I figured wtf I already own this one...

About 10yrs algo I owned a Hpi Baja 5b, And I would order all my upgrades from DDM. And to my surprise DDM is still around and has tons up upgrades for for the 5ive T :cool:

I want to keep the upgrade list short and simple. This 5ive T is well built out the box
I have cart wheeled it countless times with zero broken parts. My baja I would break something every tank.

So I hit DDM and ordered a few items that I felt were mandatory.

What exactly is it that I need to install the Hitek D845 servos on the losi 5ive t?

Some are saying they drop right in others are mentioning some type of spacer ?

Also can I used the 845 for both steering and breaking ? I ordered 2

You can use 1 D845 for steering and the other D845 for throttle/brake.

Also..if you didnt get that Rock Armour servo brace that dougstar mentioned....you may want to look into getting it or something similar. The 5ive has a STUPID amount of flex when you apply the brakes.
If you do get the brace...you may have to modify the case of the D845 you use for throttle/brake....its going to depend on if you get the rounded case like dougstar got (no mod needed) or the squared off case like i got (mod needed).

Losi came out with a servo brace for the 5ive T 2.0 but i don't know if it will fit the 5ive T you have.

Links to both are below.
