The 5IVE-B™ buggy is the 1/5-scale kit for hardcore racers
who don't want to settle for a 1/5-scale truck conversion. It has been
designed from the ground up to the exacting standards of TLR®
engineering and includes a feature set you simply won't find in
anything else like it.
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 aluminum 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.
The radio tray is designed to accommodate the most powerful 1/5-scale
steering servos available. This includes the Spektrum™ line
of 1/5-scale servos with patent-pending Back EMF technology that
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.
Aluminum Clutch Carrier
and Center 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. At the center of it is a clutch
and center differential, both of which are housed in CNC-machined
aluminum that adds strength and durability while helping to keep things
Shocks and Shock Towers
The hard anodized, 24mm shocks include bleeder caps that make them
easier to build without sacrificing performance. The shock towers offer
multiple shock mounting options that give racers an abundance of tuning
options for different track conditions.
The low rotational mass of these wheels allow the buggy to accelerate
faster with less stress on drivetrain components.
Air Filter Designed
Specifically for the 5IVE-B Buggy
Whatever 25-32cc engine you choose, the included air filter has been
designed to let it breathe deep so your 5IVE-B buggy gets the monster
horsepower it was built for.
Molded rubber boots on the CVAs and center drivetrain dog bones
increase U-joint life by holding lubrication in and keeping dirt out.
Redesigned Shock Towers
The boots help keep grease in and dirt out so your axles last longer
and require less maintenance.
Adjustable Toe and
These provide even more ways to tune the traction and overall
performance of the chassis.
