Post So I'm thinking about getting a Losi 5ive T...
So as the title reads, I'm thinking about getting a Losi 5ive T, and I wanted to ask those that are experienced with them if they're as great as they seem? If one wanted to get into racing, how much capital would be required, including the purchase of the truck? It looks like a the poor man's way to get into auto racing, but the rich man's RC, especially when it comes to upgrades and repairs! What does an individual need to do to get competitive? Is it a friendly group? Any help would be great, so thanks in advance!

The group is very friendly. It's about having fun and helping others. A pipe is needed for sure in my opinion. A couple spare drive shafts, spare arms, spare front spindle/hub carrier. Thats about it. Run the parts and motor until it fails. A spare servo is also a good idea as it will fail eventually and ruin your day. Most guys run the stock motor until it fails and you will be competitive as it's the driving that matters. Or you could buy the roller new and choose your engine of your choice. a Zenoha G320 is my suggestion.

Cheers.

Thank you for your suggestions. I've been looking for one already put together, and I might have found one... :) I'll post some pictures if I'm able to pick it up in the next week. I hopefully won't break everything right off the bat though!

Right on. They are pretty tuff out of the box man. Probably the tuffest out of the box RC I have owned.
