    Latest from MIP:



    Excessive Fade, Glazed, Galled, Poor Quality, Metal on Metal, are all words that describe the current brake system that plagues the Losi 5T. Being that the current brake system is a metal on metal system, the steel plates and aluminum disk will heat up during your run and the surfaces will start to gall each other. Being that aluminum is a softer material it will take the brunt of the damage and soon enough with more heat and excessive galling the stopping power of the OEM brakes are little to none. So why keep a system that wouldn’t even be used on a bicycle, motorcycle or full size car; let allow your race car!?

    Introducing a system that looks and works much like disk brakes on motorcycles, bikes, and large cars, just miniature! MIP’s all new Real Brakes are here for the Losi 5T! Consisting of proper and replaceable brake pads for stopping power and a disk rotor that is sure to last the life of your car, this system is sure to stop your 5T on a dime! With the MIP 5T Real Brakes adjusting the pitch of the car in the air is a synch and as your car reacts in the air the brake rotor will not get cocked forward or backward due to MIP’s brake guide. This system has been tested for months by MIP’s product development team and is attributed with the 2014 West Coast Nationals Win and 2015 Nitro Challenge Wins. Go out and get what you need for your Losi 5T get MIP!
