1/5th Scale Truck from Losi Makes Your Wallet Cry

Another player has entered the fifth-scale arena. This morning, Losi announced a new 1/5th scale short-course truck. It's called the "5IVE-T", and will be offered, initially, as a Bind-N-rive model for $1,599.99. It features massive shocks with 7mm shafts, 5mm thick chassis, a 26cc gas engine, three sealed differentials, and a 3000mAh receiver pack and charger, amoung other things.

Check out the full overview at Team Losi's website. I sincerely doubt we'll be stocking this beast; we've never done well with with the HPI Bajas, so I doubt this is going to do any better for us. Interesting though, that this HPI-competitor comes out so soon after HPI dumps Horizon...
