Losi 5ive-T Header Lock Wire Kit by MIP
This is an optional MIP Losi 5ive-T Header Lock Wire Kit. Ask any 1/5 scale owner if they have had their header pipe come off during a run. Without a doubt, the answer is yes. This doesn’t happen due to lack of maintenance but rather a poor design as the bolts vibrate loose even with the application of red thread loc. As we are all aware thread loc loses its effectiveness when heat is applied, and what does an engine produce? That’s right, HEAT! Actually a constant 240°F (116°C)!
This header pipe failure happened to the MIP team just one time, and they were not so impressed. So they sat down and re-engineered the bolt system that holds on the header pipe. With this oldie but goodie design you can rest assured that you will never hear the distinctive BAAAAAAHHHHHH sound that signifies your header pipe just came off. With the use of this product it is quite impossible for the bolts to loosen up as the other bolt will be pulled on by the wire subsequently tightening itself up. Welcome to next level, 100% Made and Designed in the USA, only from MIP.
