HPI Racing Releases the 1/5 SCALE 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 HIGH PERFORMANCE 26CC TWO-STROKE ENGINE

The Fuelie 26S is a high performance version of the Fuelie 26 engine. It uses an 8,000 RPM clutch and a special 0.7mm piston ring for less friction and quicker throttle response. A high capacity dual-element air filter keeps the engine running clean even in grueling off-road conditions, quick-change design for easy maintenance. Air cooled with built-in fan for consistent running temperatures. Fully adjustable carburetor with primer and kill switch. Aluminum tuned pipe with heavy duty steel header included!

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.

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 SS a powerful launch at high RPMs for faster acceleration!

New Short Course Body

The wide Short Course body is the first thing you’ll notice about the Baja 5SC SS: it’s more realistic than the Baja 5T body and it fits completely over the new wheels and tires to let you take corners deep, run the competition wide coming out of the corner and really bang together with other trucks! The Baja 5SC SS comes pre-painted in your choice of black or bright red, each with color coordinated graphics.

HB Rodeoo Short Course Tires and New TR-10 Wheels

For high traction on a variety of dirt surfaces, HB Rodeoo tires are standard equipment on the Baja 5SC SS. The asymmetric tread pattern mirrors the design of full-size off-road racing tires. 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 new 10 spoke wheels (TR-10) using heavy duty beadlock rings add to the realistic Short Course looks of the Baja 5SC SS.

New Front & Rear Short Course Bumpers

The final touch in completing the scale look of the Baja 5SC SS is a new set of 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!

Updated Rear Hubs

New rear hubs have been added for increased durability and easier adjustment of the toe-in setting. The new 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 SS 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 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.

SFL-11MG SERVO

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 all-in-one package!

DIRT GUARDS

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 SS 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 SS. 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!
