The Baja 5B 1/5th scale buggy has been a success since its debut,
providing enthusiasts with a ready to run large scale off road vehicle
that delivers off the charts fun and excitement. The Baja 5B SS kit
helped explode large-scale racing into the mainstream, because it
provided serious enthusiasts with a kit that was loaded with options
that enhance the Baja's speed and power, that allowed them to build and
optimize a large-scale buggy from the ground up. This gave hobbyists the
chance to add in more aftermarket goodies to make a truly one-of-a-kind
Now you can get your hands on the updated for 2014 Baja 5B SS! This is a FULL OPTION Baja 5B kit that you assemble yourself, with improved durability through Super Heavy Duty options previously unavailable on Baja buggy models! The kit carries over the robust, efficient and highly detailed double-wishbone suspension from the standard Baja 5B, and combines it with a long list of option parts is included with the SS version of the Baja 5B. As you build the kit, you add in the options that come in the box, extra HPI options, and your own radio gear and electronics - although the powerful SFL-10MG large scale metal-gear steering servo has been included as well!
Fuelie 26cc Gasoline Engine
At the heart of the Baja SS is the #15403 Fuelie 26S 26cc engine, a tougher, stronger and more powerful engine than the standard 23cc Fuelie engine in the Baja 5B RTR buggy. With more displacement you get increased low-end grunt, more acceleration and huge top-end speed! The Fuelie 26S is a 2-stroke engine powered by regular pump gasoline (petrol) that is mixed with 2-stroke engine oil, so the running cost of the engine is extremely low when compared to any normal nitro methane powered glow engine. You’ll spend just pennies per tank on fuel!
Packed with Even More Factory Options for 2014!
To handle the extra horsepower of the Fuelie 26S, the drivetrain of the Baja SS is boosted with specially designed option parts that can handle the power increase. Providing a boost of extra power is the Aluminum Tuned Pipe - with #87288 steel header for even more durability - designed just for the Fuelie 26S for even more acceleration power. The 8000 RPM Clutch lets the engine rev up to a high RPM before engaging the drivetrain, giving you lightning-fast acceleration off the starting line and out of every corner. The aluminum alloy diff case is included, giving protection from the extreme strength of the engine. When it comes to transferring all this power into breath taking action on the ground, the Super Heavy Duty Dogbones get the power from the diff to the rear wheels with chunky steel driveshafts and jointed rubber boots for minimal loss of power. Add the Heavy Duty front hubs and One Piece Rear Uprights and you have one tough unit ready to blast deserts, rugged wasteland and anything in it's path with unshakeable durability
