HPI Baja 5SC
1:5th Scale RTR 2WD Short Course Truck w/Matte Black Body
This is an HPI Baja 5SC 1:5th Scale RTR 2WD Short Course Truck w/Matte Black Body. With the new matte black color schemes, the Baja 5SC racing truck has an updated look that is menacing to your racing competition yet stylish enough to display in your garage! The new color design has all the hallmarks of an instant classic, while underneath the body our designers have been busy with the details of a brand new engine!
The new engine has all the same features as the original Fuelie 26, but now it's got a bit more power, and all of the standard and option engine parts from the previous engine will also bolt right on, so it's easy to maintain and upgrade!
With the Baja 5SC large scale truck, you can instantly jump into the thrill of Short Course racing! The Baja 5SC takes the HPI Baja line-up to the next level with a new SC-1 body that gives the Baja 5SC authentic Short Course looks. Adding to the durability and realistic looks is a new skid-plate front bumper and a large rear bumper with real rubber mud flaps. Power comes from a massive 26cc Fuelie engine that propels the Baja 5SC to speeds in excess of 40mph and it runs for more than 45 minutes on a single tank of regular unleaded pump gasoline. For extra traction on any dirt surface, HB Rodeoo tires are now standard equipment, mounted on new TR-10 bead-lock truck wheels. We increased durability with Super Heavy Duty 9mm drive shafts, updated rear hub carriers, and HD front hex hubs. A 2.4GHz radio system is standard equipment for precise control and long distance reception without the hassles of frequency crystals. It's all ready-to-run right out of the box, pre-assembled by our expert crew so you can hit the dirt quickly.
Realistic Short Course Body:
The wide Short Course body is the first thing you'll notice about the Baja 5SC: it's more realistic than the Baja 5T body and it fits completely over the new wheels and tires to let you take corners deep, run the competition wide coming out of the corner and really bang together with other trucks! The Baja 5SC comes pre-painted in your choice of black or bright red, each with color coordinated graphics.
Heavy Duty Front Wheel Hubs:
To keep in sync with the new Super Heavy Duty drivetrain, the Baja 5SC also comes with new Heavy Duty front wheel hubs. These new axles utilize a screw and nut design that eliminates the older e-clip design, which further improves the reliability of the truck.
HB Rodeoo Short Course tires and New TR-10 Wheels:
For high traction on a variety of dirt surfaces, HB Rodeoo tires are standard equipment on the Baja 5SC. The asymmetric tread pattern mirrors the design of full-size off- road racing tires. The sticky rubber compound, block treads and wide grooves give the right mix of sliding and gripping. Concentric rings on the sidewalls give extra grip if things get really hairy! Bold new 10 spoke wheels (TR-10) using heavy duty beadlock rings add to the realistic Short Course looks of the Baja 5SC.
Front & Rear Short Course Bumpers:
The final touch in completing the scale look of the Baja 5SC is a new set of bumpers that allow you to give your fellow racers a 'love tap' without risking a major incident. The bar-style front and rear bumpers look great and, along with the mud flaps, add that extra bit of Short Course realism!
Adjustable One-Piece Rear Hubs:
New rear hubs have been added for increased durability and easier adjustment of the toe-in setting. The new hubs are lighter weight and allow toe-in adjustments of 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 degrees to help match the truck performance to track conditions.
HPI makes it super-easy to get into large scale! The Baja 5SC is completely pre-built, painted and assembled right out of the box, so hitting the dirt is fast and easy! All you have to do is open the box, add AA batteries to the transmitter, charge the receiver battery, add 25:1 pre-mixed fuel and go!
