Sick of charging your batteries or mucking around with your nitro engine? Go petrol and never look back! Cheap running costs, 40 minute run-time (on a single tank), easy to maintain and easy to start! The Baja 5B, simply the most popular 1/5 chassis to date. Compatible with 99% of the parts from the original HPI Baja 5B. Unlike the original, Rovan has pre-installed a 29cc 4-bolt petrol engine for that extra power we're all looking for!
This Baja buggy can exceed speeds of 70kph and can jump big with the long-travel suspension!
To power, this huge 1/5 RC car is this massive 29cc 4-bolt engine with an NGK CMR7H spark plug & a Walbro carburetor to give you the best performance and reliability.
Just like the Genuine HPI Baja 5B, the Dirt Buster tyres have been proven over many years! Combined with Rovan's super heavy duty bead locked rims for easy maintenance and extra durability.
Rovan has drastically improved the steering power of the Baja 5B with a whole new servo that has metal gears and outputs 45kg of torque!
The Rovan & HPI Baja 5B is 99% which means when you're purchasing a replacement part you'll have the option of purchasing a Rovan or a genuine HPI. On top of that, most of the aftermarket parts such as RPM RC will fit also.
