HPI BAJA 5T DESERT TRUCK WITH 26cc MOTOR BLACK INCLUDES RX CHARGER 2.4 ghz
With its sleek black color scheme, the Baja 5T racing truck has an all-new look that is meaner, more aggressive and ready for action! The new 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 5T you get aggressive desert truck looks, high performance new features, and compatibility with many of the existing Baja 5B spare parts and option parts, wrapped up in a RTR package that gets you running in just a few minutes.
The Baja 5T was inspired by the latest generation of desert trucks that compete in the world famous Baja 1000 race in Mexico. The body was built for a perfect fit on the Baja 5T chassis, with sculpted fenders, scoops, louvers, and an integrated roll cage for authentic desert-tough looks. In true HPI RTR form, the body is completely ready to go right out the box.... Factor in the front skid plate bumper, Desert Buster tyres mounted on Outlaw truck wheels with real bead locks, and you've got a truck that looks like it just rolled off the starting line in Ensenada.
26cc engine for more power, more torque, and more speed than 23cc engines. Equipped with a convenient pullstarter for quick and easy starting. A high capacity dual-element air filter keeps the engine running clean even in grueling off-road conditions, with a quick-change design for easy maintenance. Air cooled with built-in fan for consistent running temperatures. Fully adjustable carburetor with primer and kill switch. Now constructed using Torx screws for extra durability and easier maintenance, Torx T-27 wrench included. Gasoline powered for low-cost operation compared to nitro fuel, easier to tune and more consistent than nitro engines. More than 30 minutes of run-time per tank.
All Metal Transmission Gears
The sides of the truck are protected by new guards that deflect dirt and debris away from the chassis which will not only help keep cleaning and maintenance down but will also help to lower wear and tear on the components. The engine also receives dirt guards on both sides for extra protection.
Super-Tough Body Mounting System
Keeping the body securely attached is a completely new body mounting system with tough nylon construction, 8 mounting points to distribute the stress on the body, and fully adjustable for compatibility. A adjustable front skid plate bumper protects the truck on big jumps, now with 4 headlights for realistic desert truck looks. A moulded nylon rear spoiler is included for off-road stability, with an integrated rear body brace for extra strength.
2.4GHz Radio System with Failsafe
The electronics now included in every Baja RTR buggy and truck have to be suitable to the task of handling a car nearly a meter long that can go over 40 MPH - that includes a handy built-in electronic failsafe to prevent a runaway Baja! To control the Baja 5B 2.0, we've gone with the brand new HPI radio system, which uses a 2-channel 2.4GHz DSSS (Direct-Sequence Spread Spectrum) technology.
SFL-11MG servo is used for the steering. A powerful sub-C type 6-volt receiver pack powers the servos for confidence and longevity. You'll find that many Baja bashers don't find a need to upgrade the radio system, as it's already perfect for the task
For improved handling, the Baja 5T rear shock tower has been modified for increased rear suspension travel. All four shock absorbers have thick diameter shafts for extra durability.
