BUILD THE NEW Baja 5SC SS29!
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.
New Baja 5SC SS29 Parts
The Baja 5SC is fitted with a wealth of awesome Short Course parts that make it ideal for tackling off-road tracks shoulder-to-shoulder with hordes of other racers. Check 'em out!
Fuelie 29S 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.
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.
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 body comes clear, allowing you to give it a truly custom look to call your own.
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!
Heavy Duty Beadlocks
Reinforced design Increases durability of the wheels and tires.
Baja 5SC SS Features:
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 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 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 all-in-one package!
The Baja 5SC 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.
