The HPI Baja family has grown by one more, with a set of new bumpers and a different body the HPI Baja 5SC is born. The HPI Baja 5SC is a 1/5th scale, short course r/c truck, based off the popular HPI Baja 5T 1/5th scale truck.
The HPI 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 of the Baja 5SC, is a new skid-plate front bumper and a large rear bumper with real rubber mud flaps.
Powering the HPI Baja 5SC is 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 has also 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.
