The ENORMOUS TLR 5IVE-B

Go big or go home, have a look at this buggy from TLR in 5th scale.  HPI eat your heart out, looks like this baby eats tracks for breakfast and for a big car seems to handle well.  Based not on the existing Losi 5th scale platform, but developed from the 8IGHT platform it looks designed (and ready) to RACE!

What we have seen about it so far;

* Cab forward race body
* 5mm thick, hard anodized 6061-T6 aluminum chassis
* Heavy duty brakes
* Racing style wing
* Dual steering servos
* Receiver battery steel heat shield
* 24mm, hard anodized aluminum shocks w/ bleeder caps
* Aluminum clutch carrier and center-diff case
* Engine mounted spark plug protector
* Adjustable toe & anti-squat plates
* Lightweight one piece wheels
* Ball-bearing ackerman plate w/ nutted screws
* Axle boots
* Lightweight dog bones
* Special race style air filter
* Hard-anodized aluminum shock towers

TLR05001 is the part number and an August release stateside, so I guess we will wait to see when O’Riely Model Products gets them into Australia!

PS, Bigsquid have some great photos of the car as well, check them out over at http://www.bigsquidrc.com/tlr-goes-huge-with-new-5ive-b-race-kit/
