1/5 Scale Baja 5B 2WD Gas Powered Desert Buggy SBK with Clear Body (No Engine)

The one and only original HPI Baja 5B is BACK and ready for you to build from the ground up! The HPI SBK collection of Self Build Kits grows with the addition of not just one, but TWO 1/5th scale HPI kits! Now, YOU can build and own the legend! Experience the thrill and excitement of building a car which ends up being over 80cm (nearly 32 inches) long and weighing nearly 10kg (over 21 lb)! Just install your own engine and electronics as you build the HPI Baja 5B and you'll be ready for any adventure that comes your way! With extra-tough drivetrain parts like the viscous torque differential, super-durable composite spur gear with internal damping and all-metal drivetrain, the HPI Baja 5B is ready for your 23-32cc 2-stroke engine so you can experience the joy of gas-powered RC and up to 30-minute runtimes!

The HPI Baja 5B is also equipped with extra-big and super-tough suspension parts, featuring awesome HPI durability! With its expertly designed molded composite suspension plus extra-long adjustable HD shocks, and massive high impact nylon 3-piece beadlock wheels, the Baja 5B is ready for full-speed racing on any off-road circuit!

The 4mm thick 6061 aluminum monocoque chassis gives the HPI Baja 5B the classic desert racing buggy look. Precisely bent into shape for maximum strength, the chassis provides the mounting points for the engine and suspension, forming the backbone of the car. Precise steering is provided by a dual-bellcrank rack and cam-type servo saver. Aluminum parts are anodized in cool gunmetal and the classic Baja desert racer clear polycarbonate body is included in the SBK kit, ready for your custom racing scheme!

The tube roll cage is made of high impact nylon and topped with a real aluminum roof to carry on the classic looks. The roll cage is fully functional and protects the motor and internals from crash damage. The roll cage, radio box, body panels, wing, undertray and gear case are all mounted with fast access clips for easy maintenance.

The Baja 5B SBK Includes these Upgrades:

  • Front & Rear Sway Bars - Front and rear sway bars improves handling and gives quicker steering response over. Add more tuning possibilities with the #86618 Sway Bar Set!
  • Super Heavy Duty Drive Shaft - The 9mm thick Super Heavy Duty Drive Shafts and matching HD drivetrain parts add a serious amount of toughness to the drivetrain, and the rubber boots keep mud and grass from the outdrives and bearings. #104966
  • Rear Hub Carrier - The one-piece Rear Hub Carriers are easier to adjust, more durable, and are a lighter weight than the original multi-piece hub carriers. They also allow toe-in adjustments of 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 degrees to help match the Baja's performance to track conditions. #104781
  • 24mm Heavy Duty Front Hex Hub - Replacing the original C-clip front hex hub, the HD Front Hex Hub adds a serious amount of strength to the front suspension and dramatically improves the durability of the HPI Baja 5B. # 105612
