I would go with the 5ive T. It is 4wd and should be a blast to drive

The Losi will be expensive because it just came out but you could find a HPI Baja probably cheaper from someone looking to unload to get the Losi or even just don't want it anymore. Might want to search some of the baja forums, craigslist, or even ebay. Check out my sig but they aren't forsale sorry

Go to youtube, watch the Baja's...

---then---

Watch the 5T on youtube...


Decide for yourself which looks like the funnest to drive.


For me, hands down 5t.

well, I have 5ive t and its a blast to drive this thing. if you ever mess with losi 8ight 2.0, 5ive t is bigger version of 8ight 2.0.

which one should you get??? thats million dollars question... if you looking for new one, I said go with 5ive-t. it start out few hundred more but not really need to get any hop up part. Baja start out cheaper but all the hop up will soon be more than what you pay new 5ive t for.

week or two ago i saw a guy from upstate NY selling his modded 5ive-t for $1200.

if wife make you choose between her or RC, just think which one cost less in the long term, require less attention, and which one make you happier. the choice should be clear then... also if you decide to part way with either, which one will cost half of everything you own... your old RC won't get piss off if you bring home brand new good looking RC.

If you want to run a 2wd truck, then go HPI. The Losi is 4wd and outperforms the others, in all areas, by a wide margin. IMHO

I have a 5b, 5sc twin and the Losi 5... The Losi 5 handles much better hands down!

The baja's are lighter and need less of an engine to get it moving really well.

Here are video from all 3 that I made over the past year..

Those say 1/6 and there are no trucks that I saw.


The 1/5 street cars look really nice and scale. Wouldn't mind having the Porsche.
