Baja: the Baja 5SC SS!
The exciting Baja 5SC SS gets the SS treatment! HPI is proud to announce the latest addition to the Baja line-up, the Baja 5SC SS. Like the rest of the SS line, the Baja 5SC SS comes as an unassembled kit that you get to build from the ground up. But we don't stop there; the Baja 5SC SS is equipped with all of the high performance goods in the box, right down to a clear SC-1 body
that you can paint just the way you want for a truly custom truck. The powerplant has been upgraded to the high performance Fuelie 26s engine
, coupled to the optional aluminum tuned pipe
with steel header
. Combined with the 8,000 RPM
clutch, the Baja 5SC SS has some serious grunt to help it propel to speeds in excess of 40MPH! We have also included the stock muffler
if you feel like quieting things down a bit. Traction
comes from the high performance and extremely sticky HB Rodeoo tires mounted on the new TR-10 wheels.
FUELIE 26S ENGINE
HIGH PERFORMANCE 26CC TWO-STROKE ENGINE
MORE Powerful 26S Engine

|The Fuelie 26S CC engine is a powerful 2.9HP engine which revs out at 15,000rpm max, features a 12.7mm carburetor and aluminum construction.||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.||This lightweight racing clutch combined with the heavy duty spring gives the 5SC SS a powerful launch at high RPMs for faster acceleration! |
Clear Large-Scale Short Course Body
The Baja 5SC SS ships with a realistic wide Short Course body that is clear to allow you to put your own personal stamp on the truck. Express yourself with a custom paint scheme on this huge die-cut bodyshell, which is already trimmed and ready for your own design!
Heavy Duty Front Wheel Hubs
To keep in sync with the Super Heavy Duty drivetrain, the Baja 5SC also comes with 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.
HB Rodeoo Short Course tyres and TR-10 Wheels
For high traction on a variety of dirt surfaces, HB Rodeoo tyres are standard equipment on the Baja 5SC. The asymmetric tread pattern mirrors the design of full-size off-road racing tyres. The sticky rubber compound, block treads and wide grooves give the right mix of sliding and gripping. Concentric rings on the sidewalls give extra grip if things get really hairy! Bold 10-spoke wheels (TR-10) using heavy duty beadlock rings add to the realistic Short Course looks of the Baja 5SC.
Front & Rear Short Course Bumpers
The final touch in completing the scale look of the Baja 5SC is a set of realistic short course bumpers that allow you to give your fellow racers a 'love tap' without risking a major incident. The bar-style front and rear bumpers look great and, along with the mud flaps, add that extra bit of Short Course realism!
Adjustable One-Piece Rear Hubs
Adjustable rear hubs have been added for increased durability and easier adjustment of the toe-in setting. These hubs are lighter weight and allow toe-in adjustments of 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 degrees to help match the truck performance to track conditions.
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 can handle extreme conditions and massive power!
Super Heavy Duty Drive Shafts
Super Heavy Duty Diff Shafts
Super Heavy Duty Drive Axles
| || || |
|All-new extra-thick 9mm dogbones are the starting point of the 5SC 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. |
|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. |
|The Baja 5SC is fitted with new Super HD drive axles to get power to the rear wheels, which fit the thicker dogbones. |
MORE BAJA 5SC SS FEATURES:
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.
8,000 RPM CLUTCH
Standard on the Baja 5SC SS, this lightweight racing clutch combined with the heavy duty spring gives the 5SC SS a powerful launch at high RPMs for faster acceleration!
LONG TRAVEL SUSPENSION
The awesome Baja suspension really comes into its own with long-stroke VVC/HD shock absorbers and high-sidewall truck tyres, letting the tyres 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 BRAKE
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.
TOUGH RADIO BOX
An enclosed radio box keeps water and dirt away from the radio receiver and receiver battery. The on/off switch and recharging jack are covered with soft rubber plugs for additional protection.
The Baja 5SC 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.
