Default Losi 5ive Rear Toe Block Photos

team fasteddy now offers 3 choices. 0 - 1 - 2 With 2 Anti Squat

Until now there has been no way to adjust the rear toe on the Losi 5ive. With several choices of rear toe in you can now better tune your Losi 5ive for any track or bash outing.
  • More rear Toe results in less on-power steering and slightly more steering entering into a corner.
  • Less rear Toe results in more on-power steering and slightly less entering a corner.
  • Less rear Toe will also increase straightaway speed, due to less tire scrub.

They come individually.
I dont set the prices but believe they will be under 20.00 ea Retail. (The Stock Losi 3 is 25.00)
I shipped them out yesterday to TGN and DDM so they will be available any day now.

Loving these vids as i am in the process of tearing down my new losi and adding the hopups. Chassis has just came back from getting anodised blue, woohoo.

Cheers Fast Eddy, would be nice to see one with your rear toe inserts and some footage to see what happens with the truck :)

I can take a vid here in a couple hours for ya eddy. I do not have any 0 degree bars to try never received that one.

I will do it on pavement and dirt, just need to find a place to do it since my neighbors hate the bart pipe.

I couldnt think of anywhere close to test in the dirt so I just did some testing in my backyard on the cement basketball court which is pretty slick so is a little harder to tell apart the difference. I first tried the 1 degree and then the stock 3 degree. I got about 15 seconds of driving in before a pin fell out of my rear driveshaft coupler so I did not get to romp on it like I did with the 1 degree. One thing I did notice on the short run is that with the cement it is easy to get the back end to kick out with both toe bars, but when running the stock it catches and straightens the truck up real quick. When running the 1 degree bar I can keep it in a drift and is very predictable.

First vid is with 1 Degree

Second is stock. You can see after I pitch it sideways it grabs and straightens out, I am not doing it on purpose.



I cant come to any real conclusions with this video just a little something. I really need to get on the track where I know I see a difference. Thanks for giving me a reason to take a break. Now back to work as you can see multiple home projects( Doors, Windows, garden fence) :(

Its more about feel then it is being able to see what it does.
Its like a runner trying to video the difference a new set of shoes makes.

I just installed a 0 degree block the other day.

I haven't tested it out yet, but I know I will like it for bashing.
