for 2013, with a new look and a new engine!
With its sleek black color scheme, the Baja 5T racing truck has an
all-new look that is meaner, more aggressive and ready for action!
The new design has all the hallmarks of an instant classic, while
underneath the body our designers have been busy with the details
of a brand new engine! The new engine has all the same features as
the original Fuelie 26, but now it’s got a bit more power,
and all of the standard and option engine parts from the previous
engine will also bolt right on, so it’s easy to maintain and
upgrade! With the Baja 5T you get aggressive desert truck
looks, high performance new features, and compatibility
with many of the existing Baja 5B spare parts and option parts,
wrapped up in a RTR package that gets you running in just a
The 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.... Factor in the front skid plate bumper, Desert
Buster tyres 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 Baja 5T goes way beyond looks,
under the skin is a tough 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 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.
Engine for 2013
26cc engine for more power, more torque, and more speed than 23cc
engines. Equipped with a convenient pullstarter for quick and easy
starting. A high capacity dual-element air filter keeps the engine
running clean even in grueling off-road conditions, with a
quick-change design for easy maintenance. Air cooled with built-in
fan for consistent running temperatures. Fully adjustable
carburetor with primer and kill switch. Now constructed using Torx
screws for extra durability and easier maintenance, Torx T-27
wrench included. Gasoline powered for low-cost operation compared
to nitro fuel, easier to tune and more consistent than nitro
engines. More than 30 minutes of run-time per tank.
With all that power on tap from the Fuelie 26 engine, you need
incredible drivetrain durability for all those difficult off-road
conditions that you'll be tackling with your Baja 5T - and that's
exactly what you get with these all metal transmission gears!
The sides of the truck are protected by new guards that
deflect dirt and debris away from the chassis which will
not only help keep cleaning and maintenance down but will also help
to lower wear and tear on the components. The engine also receives
dirt guards on both sides for extra
Keeping the body securely attached is a completely new body
mounting system with tough nylon construction, 8 mounting
points to distribute the stress on the body, and fully adjustable
for compatibility. A adjustable front skid plate
bumper protects the truck on big jumps, now with 4
headlights for realistic desert truck looks. A moulded nylon rear
spoiler is included for off-road stability, with an
integrated rear body brace for extra
System with Failsafe
The electronics now included in every Baja RTR buggy and truck have
to be suitable to the task of handling a car nearly a meter long
that can go over 35 MPH - that includes a handy built-in electronic
failsafe to prevent a runaway Baja! To control the Baja 5B 2.0,
we've gone with the brand new HPI radio system, which uses a
2-channel 2.4GHz DSSS (Direct-Sequence Spread Spectrum) technology
instead of the more common and cheaper AM radio system. Tough
water-resistant servos control both the steering and throttle, and
a special large-scale SFL-11MG servo is used for the steering. A
powerful sub-C type 6-volt receiver pack powers the servos for
confidence and longevity. You'll find that many Baja bashers don't
find a need to upgrade the radio system, as it's already perfect
for the task! Electronic Failsafe Nitro racers
have known for a long time that having a working failsafe system is
important for those 'just in case' moments - some unforeseen event
that could make their car go out of control. With a truck as big as
the Baja 5T (900mm long and 12.6kg in weight!), this is even more
important! The failsafe ensures that should your Baja 5T ever lose
radio signal, instead of flying out of control it will come to a
safe and controlled stop! There's nothing like peace of mind!
For improved handling, the Baja 5T
rear shock tower has been modified 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 Baja 5T includes a
rigid 4mm aluminium alloy chassis for extreme

giant new 1/5th scale Baja 5T truck. It's got the look, it's got
the power, and it's built tough to take the punishment of off-road
