Model Number: HPI103850

New from HPI Racing is the Baja 5T with a 2.4GHz radio system that makes running your truck safer and more enjoyable than ever. No need to worry about radio conflicts, crystals, or radio interference, this Baja is equipped with the latest Spread Spectrum radio technology that delivers worry-free driving.
With the Baja 5T you get aggressive desert truck looks, high performance 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... 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 tires 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. Keeping the body securely attached is a body mounting system with tough nylon construction, 8 mounting points to distribute the stress on the body, and fully adjustable for compatibility. A front skid plate bumper protects the truck on big jumps, with 4 headlights for realistic desert truck looks. A molded nylon rear spoiler is included for off-road stability, with an integrated rear body brace for extra strength. The sides of the truck are protected by guards that deflect dirt and debris away from the chassis. The engine also receives dirt guards on both sides for extra protection.

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. The steering servo is a massive metal geared unit for quick steering, and lots of torque. Standard equipment includes a high capacity 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. 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 aluminum alloy chassis for extreme durability.

So get ready to take on the desert with the giant 1/5th scale Baja 5T truck. It's got the look, it's got the power, it's got the technology, and it's built tough to take the punishment of off-road action.
