Even though the Losi 5IVE 1/5 short course truck includes a 1/4 scale metal gear servo, many owners have found it to be a weak point. To solve this problem some of the biggest names in the large scale RC aftermarket game have gotten together to create a kit which allows you to replace the stock Losi 5IVE steering servo with a super high torque unit from Hitec. The kit includes everything needed for the install including a set of Turtle Racing aluminum servo mounts, a Killer RC 4S lipo pack and a Hitec HS-900SGS servo.
DDM, Hitec, Turtle Racing, and Killer RC all worked together to provide the answer that Losi 5IVE owners have been asking for. The centerpiece is the huge Hitec HS-900SGS servo with over 1200 oz. of torque at 14.8 volts. With a complete aluminum EMI shielding case, and solid steel gears this brute has what it takes to swing your wheels with authority. Requiring only slight trimming on your stock radio tray; a set of Turtle Racing machined servo mounts use existing hardware and chassis holes to harness the HS-900SGS. A newly designed CNC machined servo horn tops off what is needed for mounting. Powering the servo is a 4S1P Killer RC 3600 Mah 14.8v LiPo battery that is a direct fit for the stock radio box providing lasting and consistent power. Killer RC also completes the electronic needs with an all new voltage regulator with a pass through for powering the servo as well as supplying the receiver and throttle/brake servo with either 6V or 8V via dip switch. All needed items for installation are included. This is the most complete and refined steering solution for the Losi 5IVE.
The extreme power and durability of the HS-900SGT is astounding. Designed from the ground up for industrial applications, these servos are the perfect answer for demanding giant scale aircraft pilots and 1/5th scale buggy and truggy drivers. Featuring all aluminum, EMI-shielded cases, solid steel gears and non-programmable digital circuits, these servos can take a beating while delivering precise performance. Designed to operate on 3 and 4-cell LiPo batteries.
