This is the 1/5 Scale gasoline monster truck the HPI Baja 5T
The HPI Baja 5T was inspired by the latest generation of desert trucks that compete in the world famous Baja 1000 race in Mexico. The body was built for a perfect fit on the Baja 5T chassis, with sculpted fenders, scoops, louvers, and an integrated roll cage for authentic desert-tough looks. In true HPI RTR form, the body is completely ready to go right out the box... painted in your choice of black or white, mounted, pre-applied racing decals and tinted windows. Factor in the front skid plate bumper, Desert Buster tires mounted on Outlaw truck wheels with real bead locks, and you've got a truck that looks like it just rolled off the starting line in Ensenada.
But the HPI Baja 5T goes way beyond looks, under the skin is a tough large scale rc truck with the power to mow down anything in its path. Power comes from a massive 26cc gasoline engine, delivering rock solid performance, easy tuning and run times of more than 30 minutes on a single tank! The high performance 8,000 RPM clutch and new high flow muffler give the HPI Baja 5T the power to launch with a roost of desert dirt on the way to a screaming top speed of more than 40 MPH.
For improved handling, HPI has modified the rear shock tower on the Baja 5T for increased rear suspension travel. All four shock absorbers have thick diameter shafts for extra durability. The VVC/HD shocks are tuned for smooth suspension dampening to help soak up the desert terrain. The innovative design of the HPI Baja 5T includes a rigid 4mm aluminum alloy chassis for extreme durability.
