High Performance, Aggressive Desert Truck!
Updated 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!
The Baja 5T is a Ready-To-Run (RTR) 1/5th scale off-road desert truck that expands on the award-winning Baja 5B family and includes a 2.4GHz DSSS radio system.
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.
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.
HPI 2.4GHz radio system for no-crystal, no-fuss driving enjoyment. You can just switch on the radio and not have to worry about what channel anyone else is running - just get out and drive!
The Baja 5T comes ready-to-run with a 6V rechargeable Ni-MH receiver battery pack. The critical electronics are enclosed in a water resistant compartment to shield them from the elements.
So get ready to take on the desert with the giant new 1/5th scale Baja 5T truck. Its got the look, its got the power, and its built tough to take the punishment of off-road action.
