Silverback RC are proud to finally announce the release of our wheel designed for the Losi 5ive-T truck. Afectionately called the 5imian (pronounced Sim - ee - yan).
Taking inspiration for 1/1 scale short course racing trucks, and from the many fantastic buggies found riding in the dunes, we have a 'design patent' on this fantastic looking scale wheel. Many hours of rigourous testing were done, including 3 vehicles running in the UK large scale off-road championship endurance race. We are the first aftermarket company in the world to mass produce a wheel for this exciting platform, and have developed our strongest polymer blend to date for its use.
The wheels come with a +3mm offset compared with stock, so extenders are not necessary in obtaining a slightly wider and improved handling stance. The hex is cut into the wheel as a post moulding process. This means we do not need to add a metal insert, which is nothing more than a method of reducing material shrinkage. The lack of a metal insert also means that the wheels weigh considerably less than the stock alternatives.
Compatible with any tyre designed for the Losi 5ive-T platform, as well as any tyre designed for the front wheels of the HPI Baja 5B, 5T, or 5SC.
