you can buy direct from savox [link]http://www.savoxusa.com/Savox_SA1283SG_Digital_Servo_p/savsv0235mg.htm[/link]...here's another one to consider, the new futaba 1/4 servo, waaay faster and more power...of course it's twice the price [link]http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXAXFG&P=7[/link]
You can get the Savox SV-0235mg from Gizmomotors for about $20 cheaper. They all so are the cheapest place I have found for Zenoah engine parts. I bought a new G270 top end from them for under $30.

Are you sure thta Futaba is a large scale servo? It is about 1 inch shorter then the Savox.

It looks like the track is tamed down a-bit for the 1/5th scalers??
I have not seen these run on track, only in vids....Seen Onroad 1/5 forumula though....

That track is purpose built for 1/5th trucks???

Wish one of those was around here!...

I just picked up a Hypertherm Powermax 65...so will not be buying one of these untill I can start making my money back with manufacturing....

Yes, the Fear Farm Track is tame for the new guys. If you have big jumps every week, then it starts to cost too much money and people stay away. Every few months we will change the track and make it harder and harder.

Thats funny because i own one and think its a pretty solid platform,also own a baja,and would take the losi hands down,and havent really heard anyone else complain about them.

Mine will be here this Thursday the 12th, great info here from you guys and I'll be ready to do what it needs out of the box,  I know I'll have a ton of thread locking to do, check the throttle arm obstruction, I'm thinking I'll leave the diffs stock fluid for a bit but what are you guys running and what made you change to something different and what are the results, sorry for all the questions, thanks guys

let me fix this for you..

"well here is my out look on the 5ivet,Ive never owned one ,but i really want on ,for the cost of it I could sell my baja & put the extra towards a 5t, but my baja is knackered so ive got no chance selling it, so instead im making this post to try put people off buying a 5t, because im jealous[:@]"

Thats better

just out of curiosity.. is Badz still around ^^ ?

400$ lost on a used truck? Not bad. Considering most don't get half of what they paid new....not bad at all...

I would have kept it and drove it untill spring....but like I said...strike when the pan is still hot....good to here you got most of what you paid....

And Yes... I don't own either...but from what I have seen....NO WAY would I choose a Baja, over the Losi,.... Welll unless it was this Electric baja..and lived in the desert ...!!!!

I Love the Power Electric put out...but hate the battery thing.... Noise can be good and bad...so a toss up..

The Losi is getting very popular now in Phoenix. We had a god time banging doors today.

Drove mine in the snow today..... Didnt work very well. I mean it powered through great but definitely needs shielding to keep snow from building up on chassis after running for about 5 minute you could even see the engine lol..... Might be something for the aftermarket world to look into building shields to keep all debris out of chassis. Just leave windows open for ventilation and shield everything under the body.

Anybody running the X-can on their 5ive-T or is it a waste of money? I just like the clean look as opposed to a tuned pipe.

to what ive heard about the x-cans... waste of money, they add nothing to power/performance & to what i read they are actually worse than the stock pipes on FG's! basically they just cosmetic piece of metal! ..so prob wise to steer clear mate :/

I'll say the JetPro made a difference, it rocks,  it's getting some love today, TR clutch holder and carrier, f...r. Braces the Killer Beees is here and the rear skid is here, and all the outer wares I could get to keep the snow out,   Just waiting on a servo delivery. 2 hi powered Savoxes on the way, could see them today.  Heading up north to bash the sled, hoping to take the 5ive with me.  Peace bros
