Hi everyone.
Well here goes.
Purchased my losi 5ive b used about 3weeks ago.

I think this was a members car but cant find the thread about the car.
This is a photo with the original body
9517B788-0B2A-4136-987D-6899DF314E10.png

The upgrades i think it came with and what i have added are as follows
OBR 29.5 full mod.
Oddified race clutch
Booster pipe.
rock amour servo brace.
Body clip teathers.
A different rear wing (not sure what make)
Yellow shock boots
i think that is about it.

The servos i think are losi 5t rtr servos. So i plan to upgrade them in the future.

I had to sort a few things to get it ready to race but i think it is now ready for raceday tomorrow.

I will update this post when i make changes or upgrades 👍

Well, after my second race day I am loving the 5b.

however I do need to strip it all down completely for a rebuild,

something I should have done from the start but I just didn't have the time to do it before my first race.

there seems to be some home made parts (or inferior parts) like the front hinge pins. x1 bent on me in the last race day final 3laps in. I cant even remember crashing that hard for this to happen!!

comparing the hinge pins against the TLR ones I have purchased it is clear they are not originals.

I am looking forward to the tear down and rebuild over the upcoming holidays and I am sure there will be some upgrades along the way to prepare for next years race season.

all in all I am very happy with the car and the way it handles.

I will take plenty of photos along the way

upgrades I think I will make are as follows.

better steering servo is needed. I am only going to use a single servo for now and see how I get on.
aluminium centre diff mounting
vertigo engine top brace
axle extenders

not a huge list but it is a start. lol

Which center diff you gonna go for? I just bought the modified rc one i also have the vertigo brace..... had to mod the brace:unsure:
Also have a rock armor servo brace and after the center diff upgrade servo brace was not touching the diff tower ..... did a mod on the brace to get it to work:unsure:

yeah I was thinking about the modified rc diff mount. I already have a rock amour servo brace. what did you do to make rock amour brace touch the diff housing?

the alloy centre diff mounting is only a thought at the moment as am not sure it is completely necessary for what I need. the lighter the better lol
