  • Baja 5B SS kit 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 Baja's 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've improved its durability even further with Super Heavy Duty options previously unavailable on Baja buggy models!
    The Baja SS is an epic member of HPI's range of upgraded ‘Super Sport’ models that feature kit versions of HPI's 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 #86690 Aluminum Tuned Pipe - now complete with #87288 steel header for even more durability - designed just for the 26cc engine for even more acceleration power. The #15448 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 #87568 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've added even more options to make the Baja5B SS even better value! The #104966 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 #112845 Heavy Duty front hubs and the #104781 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




    Fuelie 26cc Gasoline Engine


    At the heart of the Baja SS is the #15403 Fuelie 26S 26cc engine, a tougher, stronger and more powerful engine than the standard 23cc Fuelie engine in the Baja 5B RTR buggy. With more displacement you get increased low-end grunt, more acceleration and huge top-end speed! The Fuelie 26S is a 2-stroke engine powered by regular pump gasoline (petrol) that is mixed with 2-stroke engine oil, so the running cost of the engine is extremely low when compared to any normal nitromethane-powered glow engine. You’ll spend just pennies per tank on fuel!

    NEW for 2014: Heavy Duty Front Wheel Hubs

    To keep in sync with the Super Heavy Duty drivetrain, the Baja 5B SS also comes with #112845 Heavy Duty front wheel hubs. These new axles utilize a screw and nut design that eliminates the older e-clip design, which further improves the reliability of the truck. Every bit of this kit screams 'Come and get it!' ...and as Baja drivers all over the world continue to tear their Bajas through increasingly gnarly terrains - HPI's designers keep boosting the kit's rugged durability to keep the Baja coming back for more

    These #104965 Super Heavy Duty Diff Shafts, #104966 Super Heavy Duty Drive Shafts and #104967 Super Heavy Duty Axles can handle all the power that the Fuelie 26S can pump out and more! They get the power from high-power engines through the diff to the rear wheels, and jointed rubber boots keep dirt and rocks out of the joints for zero downtime.

    Sway Bars

    These #86618 improves the handling for quicker steering response in high speed situations, making it the ideal tuning device for racers and hard-core bashers! The sway bars are easily tuneable to make them more or less responsive for varying race conditions.

    SFL-10 MG Steering Servo

    In addition to all the heavy duty options included with the kit, you get a tough, super-strong steering servo #80589 that is already equipped with the #80584 Metal Gear Steering upgrade. This allows you to have the security of reliable, quick steering in all conditions. With a powerful servo controlling the steering, the Baja SS will track straight and true when you want it to, no matter how bumpy the running surface. The front wheels will also stay pointed in the right direction as you power through the turns! This is a great standard feature of the Baja SS, putting you well on your way to a solid electronics package.

    VVC/HD Shocks

    To improve the handling of the Baja even further, we have a full set of #87561 and #87562 VVC/HD Baja shocks which are included and improve handling on all types of terrain and are also heavy-duty to keep things secure on the track.
    The Baja SS carries over the robust, efficient and highly detailed double-wishbone suspension from the standard Baja 5B, giving you amazing control and precision over any type of terrain. The suspension doesn't just look like the real deal, it's built to last! The rugged upper and lower arms will soak up the bumps and rough landings of fast off-road driving and racing, plus it's super-strong to hold up in those inevitable crashes and rollovers!
