    Hey all , I am a total rc geek ( my wife says ). I have been doing rc forever. Anything with a controller..... I like. I have mostly 1/10 scale electric sc trucks,crawlers, buggies,etc. Airplanes,helis,drones bla,bla,bla. Anyways I recently bought the 5t Losi. I was wondering what oil premix I should use and any other tips before break in would be greatly apreciated. Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new RC ! I like to use synthetic 2 stroke oil because of its many advantages. I used this technique to break in my stock 26cc engine in my Hpi Baja even though it is not an O'Neil Brothers engine. My engine is reliable and has good power now. I also suggest buying a kill switch like the one from Killer RC. It will kill the engine if you lose signal which will prevent a run away. You can also kill the engine from the transmitter.

    Thanks man, Hey one more question. The 5t came with a 2 channel controller. Will I need a different controller to add the kill switch? Thanks for your help.

    New to RC Cars, but not new to RC. I fly giant scale planes and jets, but now it's the slow season for RC planes here in Northern Illinois. I watched dozens of the RC Adventure videos and bought a Losi XXL 2e. Now I'm hooked. I haven't stopped charging and running until I broke a shock shaft. Joined here to learn

    No you can use the stock radio. You would need to get a y-splitter cable with the kill switch for it to work. Your welcome!
