The aluminum steering knuckles are stock and no I do not sue the aluminum dual servo mount. The plastic stock one works just great for me.

I run a Bartolone piston port 32 in my buggy and it hauls. At the track Iíve been asked a few times what engine it is.

Currently using the Troy Built one way start adapter and a threaded coupler with drill. So far, so good.

Is there room to get that into the rear of the motor? I would like to see a picture to it in use. Thanks for your response.

Hey guys.. looking at a 5T roller V2.. can anyone tell me the difference between the 2.0 and the V2? Curious if parts are interchangeable between the two and or are still available..

thanks

2.0 is the v2 so no difference there

90% of the v1 and v2 parts are interchangeable, it's only the area around the centre driveline that has had major changes

To reduce the front driveshaft angle, the centre diff has been flipped around and moved about an inch back to the rear, and 1/2 an inch toward the centre line. This means the v1 centre driveshafts are a different length, and they are now also dogbones, as opposed to a dogbone on one end, and a coupler on the diff input end. The spur gear faces the front now. The engine mounting holes are also different as they're for the Zenoah engine, as opposed to the CY engine on the v1, so engine spacers are also different

thanks!!

so the fastest way to tell would be to see if the front driveshafts has a dog bone 2.0 or a coupler 1.0

That's one way I guess. Another way is to see if the spur gear is facing toward the front and not the rear.
The steering bellcrank is also different, plus the v2 has the TLR gold(ish) couloured shocks with bleeder caps

Are you looking for a used roller or something? if you have pics post them up. I always see people selling "Losi 5iveT" when in actual fact I can tell it's one of the clones. You need to know what to look for

I see some amazing machines here. Can you help me understand the current status of 5th scale off-road racing in the US? I see all our Texas tracks have closed. Is there any racing in neighboring states, OK, LA, NM? Even if its a monthly race. I used to race HPI Baja and FGs back in the day and it was fun.
