The exciting 1/5th scale Baja 5SC short course truck gets the 29 treatment! The Baja 5SC SS29 comes as an unassembled kit that you get to build from the ground up. If you enjoy the process of custom building your own R/C vehicles, the Baja 5SC SS29 is the kit for you.
The Baja 5SC SS29 is more than just a kit version, it's packed with extra speed and a long list of option parts. The powerplant has been upgraded to the high performance Fuelie 29s engine, coupled to a high flow aluminum tuned pipe with steel tubular header. Combined with the 8,000 RPM clutch, the Baja 5SC SS29 has some serious grunt to help propel it to speeds in excess of 40MPH! Need to quiet things down a bit? We've also included a stock can muffler just in case.
HIGH PERFORMANCE 29CC TWO-STROKE ENGINE
The powerful Fuelie 29 gasoline engine propels the Baja 5SC SS29 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!
Aluminum Tuned Pipe Included
The header is made from large diameter steel tubing for extra strength. The stinger design is optimized for a perfect fit in the Baja rear cage.
8,000 RPM Lightweight Clutch
This lightweight racing clutch combined with the heavy duty spring gives the 5SC SS29 a powerful launch at high RPMs for faster acceleration!
Heavy Duty Beadlocks
Reinforced design Increases durability of the wheels and tires.
Super Heavy Duty Parts
Because of the ever-increasing power demands of Baja owners around the world, and the constant desire to cram as much power in the
Baja chassis as possible, we've added all-new SUPER Heavy Duty drivetrain parts that will make sure the Baja 5SC SS29 can handle
extreme conditions and massive power!
Super Heavy Duty Drive Shafts
All-new extra-thick 9mm dogbones are the starting point of the 5SC SS29 drivetrain upgrade - these are new, thicker and stronger to outlast the roughest rides and racing action you can find! New wider rubber boots are included to keep the dirt and mud away.
Super Heavy Duty Diff Shafts
Getting the power from the diff gears to the new dogbones is a wider diff shaft that perfectly fits the increased diameter of the dogbones.
Super Heavy Duty Drive Axles
Getting the power to the wheels are new Super HD drive axles, which fit the thicker dogbones.
HEAVY DUTY FRONT WHEEL HUBS
To keep in sync with the new super heavy duty drivetrain, the Baja 5SC SS also
comes with new Heavy Duty front wheel hubs. These new axles utilize a screw
and nut design that eliminates the previous use of an e-clip, which furthers the
reliability of the truck.
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 SS transmission is made from long-life alloy to
keep your truck running all day long with minimal maintenance.
LONG TRAVEL SUSPENSION
The awesome Baja suspension really comes into its own with long-stroke
VVC/HD shock absorbers and high-sidewall truck tires, letting the tires 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 BRAKES
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 SS 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
The Baja 5SC SS SS has full-length dirt guards to keep mud, rocks and water out of
the main chassis area. The guards continue all the way to the engine and help
keep cleaning time to a minimum. And, mud flaps on the rear bumper add to
the realistic Short Course appearance.
The Baja 5SC SS29 follows the HPI innovation of upgraded 'Super Sport' models that feature kit versions of popular HPI RTR models, with additional
option parts added to enhance the enjoyment of your kit. A long list of option parts are included with the SS version of the Baja 5SC. As you build
the kit, you add in the options that come in the box, and add your own radio gear (receiver, throttle servo, and receiver battery). 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!
