1/5 Scale Short Course Thrills!
Jump into the thrill of Short Course racing with the Baja 5SC truck from HPI. The Baja 5SC takes the HPI Baja line-up on to the Short Course Track with the SC-1 body that gives the Baja 5SC authentic Short Course looks. Adding to the durability and realistic look is the skid-plate front bumper and large rear bumper with real rubber mud flaps.

For extra traction on any dirt surface, HB Rodeoo tires are now standard equipment, mounted on TR-10 bead-lock truck wheels. Durability is assured with the Super Heavy Duty 9mm drive shafts, Heavy Duty rear hub carriers, and Heavy Duty front hex hubs. A 2.4GHz radio system is standard equipment for precise control and long distance reception without the hassles of frequency crystals. It's all ready-to-run right out of the box, pre-assembled by our expert crew so you can hit the dirt quickly.
Not sure what 'Short Course' is?
Short Course racing is off-road truck racing in an enclosed dirt arena. Filled with jumps, straight sections and tight corners, short course racetracks are just like the RC version of off-road tracks...just imagine them filled with 20 full-size trucks, each with 700hp, scrambling for track position and bashing each other in the turns! You can bump and batter each other but keep the truck on its wheels, thanks to the fully enclosed wheels and tires.
2.4GHz Radio System:
Controlling everything is easy with the HPI 2.4GHz radio system. No need to worry about changing crystals, the radio prevents frequency conflicts automatically. If the truck loses radio signal or battery power, an electronic fail safe will bring it to a safe and controlled stop. Spread Spectrum DSSS - no frequency worries when running with dozens of cars at the same time
