The Awesome Baja 5B SS - UPDATED for 2014!
The 1/5th scale Baja 5B desert racing buggy has been a huge success since its debut, and the self-build Baja 5B SS helped explode large-scale racing into the mainstream, because it allows serious RC fans the chance to build and optimize a large-scale buggy from the ground up. Loaded with options that enhance the Bajas speed and power, the SS version allows serious RC hobbyists the chance to add in more aftermarket goodies to make a truly one-of-a-kind Baja 5B.
Now you can get your hands on the new, updated for 2014 Baja 5B SS! This is a FULL OPTION Baja 5B kit that you assemble yourself, and now we have improved its durability even further with Super Heavy Duty options previously unavailable on Baja buggy models!
The Baja SS is an epic member of HPIs range of upgraded Super Sport models that feature kit versions of HPIs popular RTR models, with additional option parts added to enhance the enjoyment of your kit. A long list of option parts is included with the SS version of the Baja 5B. As you build the kit, you add in the options that come in the box, extra HPI options, and your own radio gear and electronics - although we include the powerful SFL-10MG large scale metal-gear servo to get you started!
Packed with Even More Factory Options for 2014!
To handle the extra horsepower of the Fuelie 26S, the drivetrain of the Baja SS is boosted with specially designed option parts that can handle the power increase. Providing a boost of extra power is the Aluminum Tuned Pipe - now complete with steel header for even more durability - designed just for the 26cc engine for even more acceleration power. The 8000 RPM Clutch lets the engine rev up to a high RPM before engaging the drivetrain, giving you lightning-fast acceleration off the starting line and out of every corner. Protecting the differential is the Aluminium Alloy Diff Case, giving protection from the extreme strength of the engine. When it comes to transferring all this power into breathtaking action on the ground, for 2014 we have added even more options to make the Baja5B SS even better value! The Super Heavy Duty Dogbones get the power from the diff to the rear wheels with chunky steel driveshafts and jointed rubber boots for minimal loss of power. Add the Heavy Duty front hubs and the One Piece Rear Uprights and we have one tough unit ready to blast deserts, rugged wasteland and anything in it's path with unshakeable durability.

I am absolutley thrilled with this Buggy. it took me 2 days to build without rushing and the Mrs narrating. If your not technically minded i wouldn't advise buying this as there is a lot too it (probably well over 5-600 parts :O) that said the instuctions are excellent so long as you read them thoroughly for each step. Modelsport UK's service upon purchasing this item was outstanding and they even put the extra items i purchased at the same time in the box with it which was very intuitive.
