This is the HPI Baja 5SC SS 1/5 Scale Short Course Truck Kit. The exciting 1/5th scale Baja 5SC short course truck gets the SS treatment! The Baja 5SC SS comes as an unassembled kit that you get to build from the ground up. If you enjoy the process of custom building your own R/C vehicles, the Baja 5SC SS is the kit for you. The Baja 5SC SS is more than just a kit version, it's packed with extra speed and a long list of option parts. The power plant has been upgraded to the high performance Fuelie 26S engine, coupled to a high flow aluminum tuned pipe with steel tubular header. Combined with the 8,000 RPM clutch, the Baja 5SC SS has some serious grunt to help propel it to speeds in excess of 40MPH! Need to quiet things down a bit? A stock can muffler has been included just in case.

To withstand the additional power, the drivetrain has been upgraded to Super Heavy Duty specs. Massive 9mm dogbones are paired up with super heavy duty diff shafts and drive axles for a bulletproof drivetrain. The front end of the truck has also been beefed up with the addition of new HD front wheel hubs that eliminate the use of e-clips. Updated rear hubs aid in both the durability and adjustability of the truck, allowing you to easily go from 0 to 4 degrees of rear toe-in to precisely tune the handling of your Baja 5SC SS.

Traction comes from high performance and extremely sticky HB Rodeoo tires mounted on new TR-10 wheels. The asymmetric tread pattern mirrors the design of full-size off-road racing tires for authentic looks, and the specially blended HB rubber compound gives high grip and long life on a variety of off-road surfaces. The true bead-lock TR-10 wheels look great and allow you to mount and change tires without the need for super glue.

For quick and responsive steering, a powerful metal gear SFL-11MG steering servo is included to tackle the demands of 1/5th scale off-road driving. Throttle servo, transmitter and receiver used is up to you, just bolt in your favorite equipment.

To top everything off a clear SC-1 body has been included that you can paint just the way you want for a truly custom truck. The realistic short course body comes pre-cut with body post holes and cooling holes already in place. Giant pre-cut vinyl decals are also included, complete with stripes, logos, front grill, and lights.

The powerful Fuelie 26S gasoline engine propels the Baja 5SC to speeds in excess of 40mph. With a dual-element air filter, easy pull starting and convenient Torx T-27 screws, it's easy to keep running on standard pump fuel and 2-cycle engine oil. And best of all, you can run for more than 45 minutes on a single tank of gas!

Baja 5SC SS Features:

  • Powerful 26S Engine: The Fuelie 26S CC engine is a powerful 2.9HP engine which revs out at 15,000rpm max, features a 12.7mm carburetor and aluminum construction.
  • Aluminum Tuned Pipe Included: The header is made from large diameter steel tubing for extra strength. The stinger design is optimized for a perfect fit in the Baja rear cage.
  • 8,000 RPM Lightweight Clutch: This lightweight racing clutch combined with the heavy duty spring gives the 5SC SS a powerful launch at high RPMs for faster acceleration!
  • Clear Short Course Body: The wide Short Course body is the first thing you'll notice about the Baja 5SC SS: 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!
  • HB Rodeoo Short Course Tires and TR-10 Wheels: For high traction on a variety of dirt surfaces, HB Rodeoo tires are standard equipment on the Baja 5SC SS. 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 SS.
  • New Front & Rear Short Course Bumpers: The final touch in completing the scale look of the Baja 5SC SS 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!
  • Updated 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.
  • Super Heavy Duty Diff Shafts: Getting the power from the diff gears to the new dogbones is a wider diff shaft that perfectly fits the increased diameter of the dogbones.
  • Super Heavy Duty Drive Axles: Getting the power to the wheels are new Super HD drive axles, which fit the thicker dogbones.
  • Heavy Duty Front Wheel Hubs: To keep in sync with the new super heavy duty drivetrain, the Baja 5SC SS also comes with new Heavy Duty front wheel hubs. These new axles utilize a screw and nut design that eliminates the previous use of an e-clip, which furthers the reliability of the truck.
  • Viscous Torque Differential: Unique in the world of large-scale racing, the HPI Viscous Torque Differential gets the power to the rear wheels as smooth as silk. It's easy to tune with optional diff oils and is fully fitted with hardened metal gears and an alloy case.
  • Metal Gear Transmission: From the input shaft and idler gear to the alloy-encased differential, every gear inside the sturdy Baja 5SC SS transmission is made from long-life alloy to keep your truck running all day long with minimal maintenance.
  • Long Travel Suspension: The awesome Baja suspension really comes into its own with long-stroke VVC/HD shock absorbers and high-sidewall truck tires, letting the tires do their business whether you're driving over rutted-out whoops or flying over a big tabletop!
  • Heavy Duty Shock Absorbers: VVC/HD shocks deliver improved handling over rough terrain and feature large 6mm diameter shock shafts for increased durability. Threaded shock bodies are used for easy adjustment of ride height.
  • Dual Vented Disc Brakes: Steel/aluminum hybrid brake rotors and semi-metallic brake pads handle braking duties, while a special venting system keeps the brakes cool for consistent stopping power.
  • 700cc Fuel Tank: For runtimes of up to 45 minutes, the Baja 5SC SS fuel tank holds up to 700cc of pre-mixed fuel - that's over half a liter! And just in case you clip a track barrier and flip over, the tank is equipped with a 'clunk' device that allows the engine to continue running even if the truck is resting on its roof.
  • SFL-11MG Steering Servo: The hi-torque SFL-11MG servo features extra tough all metal gears for durability, an aluminum steering arm and a water resistant case.
  • Sealed Radio Box: An enclosed radio box keeps water and dirt away from the 2.4GHz receiver and receiver battery. The on/off switch and recharging jack are sealed with soft rubber plugs for additional protection. To keep up with those long runtimes, a high capacity, long lasting, 3000mAh Ni-MH rechargeable receiver pack comes standard from the factory. It comes prewired with a separate charging lead for easy access charging with the included wall charger for that ultimate all-in-one package!
  • Dirt Guards: The Baja 5SC SS SS has full-length dirt guards to keep mud, rocks and water out of the main chassis area. The guards continue all the way to the engine and help keep cleaning time to a minimum. And, mud flaps on the rear bumper add to the realistic Short Course appearance.
