TLR05001 5IVE-B Race Kit: 1/5 4wd Buggy(RRP)
Like the championship-winning 8IGHT™ platform on which it is based, the big 5IVE-B™ buggy has been engineered for one thing – winning races. No mere RTR conversion, it is a purpose-designed racing kit that you equip with the engine and electronics of your choice.
Purpose-Built Racing Chassis
Unlike most so-called 1/5-scale racing buggies, this one comes with a chassis specifically engineered for competition. Inspired by the legendary TLR® 8IGHT™ platform, it is machined from hard-anodized, 5mm 6061-T6 aluminium and features a shorter wheel base for better handling. It also has milled pockets that save weight and allow enough flex for maximum traction under hard acceleration.
Heavy Duty Brakes
Stamped-steel rotors, combined with the heavy duty plates and pads, provide a sense of confidence and control that let racers drive harder into the turns and come to a stop more quickly. Front-to-rear braking bias can also be fine-tuned for evolving track conditions.
Dual-Steering-Servo Radio Tray
The radio tray can accommodate the most powerful 1/5-scale servos available. The Spektrum(tm) line of 1/5-scale servos (sold separately) are great choices. Their patent-pending Back EMF technology prevents servo fade and maintains maximum holding power for the duration of a receiver pack.
Racing Body and Wing
The cab-forward body and wing are inspired by those used on 1/8-scale racing buggies. The distinctive shape of the body moves aerodynamic pressure further forward on the car, which improves steering at speed. The wing has a removable wicker bill for adjusting rear downforce.
Aluminium Clutch Carrier and Centre Diff Case
Harnessing the power of a high-output gas engine during an hour long main requires a race-bred drive system engineered to exacting standards. The 5IVE-B buggy has one. Both the clutch carrier and centre-differential case are made of CNC machined aluminium that adds strength and durability as well as dissipates heat.
