Stepping Up
« on: July 04, 2015, 12:54:54 AM »
Hi Guys, Im Pete from Adelaide South Australia and am currently getting the need to up scale my collection to 5th scale! At the moment i am thinking of selling up some of my 1/10 collection gear to fund a Losi 5T!
I have been into rc for about 15+ years on and off and have had experience in both nitro and electric 1/8 and 1/10. I had plans of racing 1/10 offroad but due to work commitments in the past this has proved to be a bit hard to make possible....so im thinking of getting a  5 truck to replace my need for dirt thumbsup.
my current collection is
Kyosho Lazer fs2 sp
Losi 22t
Hobao hyper 10sc
Associated 18sc
Im looking forward to learning a lot from this forum about 5th scale and hope to show off a new purchase asap.
Feel free to post replies with links to any Losi 5T articles, must have's,beginners guides, etc to help me catch up!
Cheers! 1beer!

Hey mate, welcome to the madhouse.

Keep an eye on places like gumtree for cheap-ish losi's. If a seller says pickup only, Don't be afraid to ask the seller if they are willing to box it up, and organise your own courier.

Never trust the seller regarding the condition of a motor, it's always safest to assume the motor is cactus, if it's good then your laughing.

Never run without a working kill switch, the best one is a killer rc killer bee, stay clear of the bullshit clone of it the bee killer.

Don't be afraid to work on these things. You will need to know how to build them so you can repair them, it's much more satisfying to build/repair it yourself, than to pay someone else to do it.

Other than that go out there, destroy some grass and have fun.

Oh, and one last thing,

&worthless&
