High Performance, Aggressive Desert Truck!
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... painted in your choice of black or white, mounted, pre-applied racing decals and tinted windows. 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.
New Body Mounting SystemKeeping 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.
But the Baja 5T goes way beyond looks, under the skin is a tough truck with the power to mow down anything in its path. Power comes from a massive 26cc gasoline engine, delivering rock solid performance, easy tuning and run times of more than 30 minutes on a single tank. The high performance 8,000 RPM clutch and new high flow muffler give the Baja 5T the power to launch with a roost of desert dirt on the way to a screaming top speed of more than 40 MPH.
Fuelie 26 Engine (26cc)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 GearsWith all that power on tap from the Fuelie 26 engine, you need incredible drivetrain durability for all those difficult off-road conditions that you'll be tackling with your Baja 5T - and that's exactly what you get with these all metal transmission gears!
Dirt GuardsThe 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.
High Quality Radio GearThe included TF-10 radio system is FM for excellent range and includes an adjustable failsafe system for extra protection. The SFL-10MG2 steering servo is a massive unit for quick steering and lots of torque. Standard equipment includes a new higher capacity 3000mah NiMH rechargeable receiver pack and an AC charger. The radio system is protected by a sealed housing with an external charging jack, and both servos are water resistant designs that allow the Baja 5T to be driven in extreme off-road conditions. The Baja 5T comes ready-to-run with a high quality 3-channel FM radio with excellent range, a high torque metal-gear steering servo, failsafe equipped receiver, throttle servo and a 3000 mAh rechargeable Ni-MH receiver battery pack. The critical electronics are enclosed in a water resistant compartment to shield them from the elements.
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. The VVC/HD shocks are tuned for smooth suspension dampening to help soak up the desert terrain. The innovative design of the Baja 5T includes a rigid 4mm aluminium alloy chassis for extreme durability.
So get ready to take on the desert with the giant new 1/5th scale Baja 5T truck. It's got the look, it's got the power, and it's built tough to take the punishment of off-road action.
