This is the HPI 1/5 Baja 5SC Short Course Truck. 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. HPI increased durability with Super Heavy Duty 9mm drive shafts, updated rear hub carriers, and HD front hex hubs. It's all ready-to-run right out of the box, pre-assembled by HPI's expert crew so you can hit the dirt quickly.

TF-20 Transmitter and RF-30 Receiver
A 2.4GHz radio system is standard equipment for precise control and long distance reception without the hassles of frequency crystals. No need to worry about frequency conflicts, if the truck loses radio signal or battery power, an electronic failsafe will bring it to a safe and controlled stop.

Super Heavy Duty Drivetrain!
Because of the ever-increasing power demands of Baja owners around the world, and the constant desire to cram as much power in the Baja chassis as possible, HPI has added all-new SUPER Heavy Duty drivetrain parts that will make sure the Baja 5SC can handle extreme conditions and massive power!

  • Super Heavy Duty Drive Shafts: Extra-thick 9mm dogbones are the starting point of the 5SC drivetrain upgrade - these are new, thicker and stronger to outlast the roughest rides and racing action you can find! New wider rubber boots are included to keep the dirt and mud away.
  • 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.


Updated Baja Short Course Parts!
The Baja 5SC is fitted with a wealth of awesome Short Course parts that make it ideal for tackling off-road tracks shoulder-to-shoulder with hordes of other racers. Check 'em out!

  • 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 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.
  • 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. 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 bead lock rings add to the realistic Short Course looks of the Baja 5SC.
  • New 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!
  • 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.
  • Fulie 26 Engine: The powerful Fuelie 26 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!
  • 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 transmission is made from long-life alloy to keep your truck running all day long with minimal maintenance.
  • 8,000 RPM Clutch: Standard on the Baja 5SC, this lightweight racing clutch combined with the heavy duty spring gives the 5SC a powerful launch at high RPMs for faster acceleration!
  • 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 Disk 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 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 NiMH rechargeable receiver pack comes standard from the factory. It comes pre-wired 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 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.
