This is a Short version of the 1/5 Scale Baja buggy. Weighs in at 26.4 pounds. It’s is 28 inches long (31 inches with the wheelie bar) This makes it 3 3/4 inches shorter then a standard Baja.

It has a short 18 1/4 inch Wheelbase so it’s great for small places, turn very sharp and does wheelies!!

This makes it a very fun Baja for just fooling around with, stunts etc..

Most parts are compatible with the standard HPI Baja. Parts like the frame/body/gas tank/throttle linkage/ rear tower brace are different do to the shorter wheelbase.

Upgraded Nylon Front and Rear Suspension Arms

Upgraded Rear CNC Aluminum Shock Tower Brace.

Symmetrical Steering for sharp turns

Wheelie Bar comes installed on it

Can reach speeds of 40 mph right out of the box.

Powerful 29cc 4 bolt head motor!

It gives you the feel of racing the real thing.

A great cost effective way to get into gas 1/5 scale.

Everything in pictures is INCLUDED!!

Stock parts and aftermarket parts are available everywhere for this buggy including hobby shops, HPI, internet etc, and of course in my website.

Since HPI 5b parts bolt right on this buggy as well as the vast amount of aftermarket parts, it is very easy to maintain this buggy.

This is a great way to get into 1/5 gas buggy racing without breaking the bank.
