Today brings some “Big” news from the crew over at Losi, they are now selling their very popular 5th scale 5ive-T in a race roller form. Selling the 5ive-T as a race roller is great for people who want to use their own motor and electronics or for people wanting to save some cash up front and finish their truck over time. The race roller comes with a clear body so you can apply the paint scheme of your choice and does not come with gas engine, servo’s, transmitter or a receiver.
Part number for the new 5ive-T roller is LOSB0024 and you can get more information by clicking on THIS LINK that takes you to the Horizon Hobby UK website.
