HPI Baja 5B Nitro 1/5 Scale

HPI Baja 5B: Bigger is Better!

Scare Tactics

Built to command authority, the nitro-fuelled HPI Baja 5B continues on in HPI’s Baja line with a Baja-style cage and 460-480mm wide HPI Dirt Buster tires for surefire traction RTR.  With rear wheel drive, the Baja is 1/5 scale with double wishbone suspension with adjustable roll center, plus long suspension arms and higher ground clearance that allows you to go places the smaller-scale buggies could never hope to conquer.


For those uninterested in the assembly aspect of rc truggies, the Baja 5B comes RTR preassembled right out of the box. The only work necessary is to fill up the gas, add some oil, and let ‘er rip.
