The Latest Spec Baja Buggy!
When the designers at HPI released the original Baja buggy to the public, we didn't realize the absolute storm of popularity it would enjoy. Racers everywhere loved it, reviews from all over the world absolutely glowed with enthusiasm, shops ran out of stock and brand new companies sprung up to make wild hop-ups for this one-of-a-kind machine. We had just as much fun tracking all the praise as we did for the Savage monster truck! Most encouraging of all, though, we heard back from customers everywhere about how much they enjoy their Baja, which is the best thing we could possibly expect.
After all that, you'll understand that when it comes to updating such a legendary car, you can't mess with the magic too much: we wanted to give our fans more of the same, without going overboard. It was a tricky suect, but we're sure we got it right on the money.
The HPI Baja: the original, and still the best!
The Baja 5B 2.0 gives you more speed, better acceleration, improved handling and THREE fantastic new looks! The awesome grey-anodized look of the Baja 5T truck comes to the buggy, with all of the main aluminium parts now anodized a cool, sleek gunmetal colour. The body is now available in three fantastic new designs: bright red, cool blue and subdued grey.
Now with an All-New 2.4GHz DSSS Radio!
All of the Baja models, including the 5T truck and 5B buggy, now include an exclusive brand new HPI 2.4GHz radio system! This means you get to experience DSSS (Direct-Sequence Spread Spectrum) technology for no-crystal, no-fuss driving enjoyment. You can just switch on the radio and not have to worry about what channel anyone else is running - just get out and drive!
Revised 23cc Engine
The new engine fitted in the Baja 5B 2.0 features an updated cylinder that provides 10% extra power! When combined with the High Flow Muffler and 8000 RPM clutch, you'll experience much faster top speeds, better acceleration and more power overall!
High Flow Muffler
The High Flow Muffler from the Baja 5T is a much larger capacity design than the old standard muffler, and is tuned to give you more horsepower on the track. It sounds fantastic, too! When the Baja 5B 2.0 is ripping past the pits, you will know it!
