Kit builders rejoice, HPI Baja 5SC SS kit

RTR Sucks.  I said it, and I don’t feel bad for saying it.  So any time I hear of a kit version of any vehicle being released I jump for joy. HPI has long been cool about releasing their Baja 5 line as a kit version, so their new Baja 5SC SS comes as no surprise.  Just like all the other SSes, the 5SC version includes all kinds of great hop-ups to make it worth buying over the stock RTR version.  The biggest and most important is the engine, a Fuelie 26s engine, which as the name implies is a 26cc, tuned, race-ready engine.  Also included is a shiny tuned pipe that’ll help extract all the power out of that big engine.  HPI’s VVC/HD large bore shocks are also included to help keep the 5SC planted to the ground.  To top it all off is a clear body that you can paint to your tastes.  That isn’t all though, there’s plenty of other hop-up parts included, too many to keep listing here.

The Baja 5SC SS will be hitting shelves this month with an MSRP of $2099.  Be sure to check out the HPI website for all the details.
