Own a Losi 5IVE-T and want to have pure raw power at the pull of the trigger? Or do you simply need a quit, clean and maintenance free power plant? If you answered yes to either of those questions then SkoPod has your answer. Their new billet aluminum mounting kit allows you to convert your gas guzzler Losi 5IVE-T into a brushless powerhouse. Their kit is designed to work with the V2 Castle Creation XL System that has already been proven to work great with their HPI baja kit.
Check out their beefy mounts, these things are built for strength but have been lightened and pocketed to keep the weight to a limit. You will also notice the motor is supported on both ends. Something they felt is important for two reasons. One is this motor is heavy and these 1/5 scale trucks take a serious beating and they wanted to keep that motor planted. The second reason is the stock gas engine being mounted in four places in the center of the chassis acts as somewhat of a chassis stiffener . The SkoPod kit uses these same 4 mounting holes to replace the chassis key structural element.
