BAJA 5SC FEATURES:
REVISED 26cc ENGINE for 2014
The powerful Fuelie 26 gasoline engine propels the Baja 5SC to speeds in excess of 40mph. With a dual-element air filter, easy pullstarting 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! TOP SPEED 40+ MPH!
VISCOUS TORQUE DIFF
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.
ALL 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 tyres, letting the tyres 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 BRAKE
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.
LARGE 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.
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!

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! As with all HPI cars and trucks, you get a full, in-depth instruction manual with step by step instructions that allow you to easily disassemble and reassemble your truck for maintenance and easy servicing. The HPI RC Car DVD is your personal RC car expert in a box!
