HPI is proud to announce the Baja SS, a full-option Baja kit that you assemble yourself, loaded with tons of hop-ups that enhance the speed and power of the Baja 5B buggy, improve its durability even further, and provide totally sweet custom looks, plus the immense satisfaction of building it yourself. Once you build it you learn how to take it down and repair it so you can save on all those repair bills.

This is a very high quality kit and everything goes together sweetly and precisely with no slop, bag or pushing and stretching to make it all fit. The highly detailed instructions are very clear and explicit with 1:1 pictures at the sides so you can't get the wrong piece.

The Baja SS kit comes with a lot of parts that are optional extras in the RTR version of this superb machine, like all the coloured alloy parts and the chromed exhaust, plus a long list of other parts is included with the SS version of the Baja 5B.

The Baja 5B SS comes complete, but to make it run you will also need a radio & receiver (with failsafe function), throttle servo (minimum 10kg), receiver pack battery ( and charger) and paint for the body, which comes clear. As you build the kit, you add in the options that come in the box, and build in the stuff you supplied yourself.

The beating heart of the Baja SS is the Fuelie 26S 26cc engine, a tougher, stronger and more powerful engine than the standard 23cc Fuelie engine in the Baja 5B RTR buggy. With more displacement you get increased low-end grunt, more acceleration and huge top-end speed! The Fuelie 26S is a 2-stroke engine powered by regular pump petrol that is mixed with 2-stroke engine oil, so you can get fuel for this anywhere at all, unlike a nitro powered motor.


To handle the extra horsepower of the Fuelie 26S, the drivetrain of the Baja SS is boosted with specially designed hop-up parts that can handle the power increase. Providing a boost of extra power is the all chrome Aluminium Tuned Pipe, which is designed just for the 26cc engine and gives even more acceleration power to the Baja SS. The 8000 RPM Clutch lets the engine rev up to a high RPM before engaging the drivetrain, giving you lightning-fast acceleration off the starting line and out of every corner. Protecting the differential is the Aluminium Alloy Diff Case, giving protection from the extreme strength of the engine. Finally, the  Heavy Duty Rear Dogbones get the power from the diff to the rear wheels with chunky steel driveshafts and jointed rubber boots for minimal loss of power.

#87477 Gunmetal Main Chassis
Orange Anodized SS Parts
Unique customised looks with a gunmetal-anodized 6061 T6 aluminium monocoque chassis. Super-rigid for supreme performance, it also looks amazing under the bodyshell!
From the shock caps to the engine plate and chassis braces, you can see lightweight anodized aircraft aluminium 6061 T6 parts that highlight the incomparable looks of the Baja SS chassis.
To improve the handling of the Baja even further, a full set of new heavy duty hydraulic Baja shocks are included that improve handling on all types of terrain. A complete set of sway bars are included to keep your Baja SS planted in the curves and aid traction. To get more rear suspension travel at the rear, our designers have modified the rear shock tower brace – this gives you better rear traction and increased braking for lower lap times!
The Baja SS carries over the robust, efficient and highly detailed double-wishbone suspension from the standard Baja 5B, giving you amazing control and precision over any type of terrain. The suspension doesn't just look like the real deal, it's built to last! The rugged upper and lower arms will soak up the bumps and rough landings of fast off-road driving and racing, plus it's super-strong to hold up in those inevitable crashes and rollovers!

The front and rear suspension hubs are also extremely durable and made from tough nylon composite material, so it will go the distance and absorb any bumps from crashes. Thick steel turnbuckles connected with strong composites provide a full range of movement while providing protection, plus they allow you a good range of adjustments so you can fine-tune your settings to get past the pack on the racetrack!

In addition to all the heavy duty options included with the kit, you get a tough, super-strong steering servo that is already equipped with the Metal Gear Steering upgrade. This allows you to have the security of reliable, quick steering in all conditions. With a powerful servo controlling the steering, the Baja SS will track straight and true when you want it to, no matter how bumpy the running surface it. The front wheels will also stay pointed in the right direction as you power through the turns! This is a great standard feature of the Baja SS, putting you well on your way to a solid electronics package.

To protect the tyre sidewalls the kit also includes Heavy Duty Bead Locks in the Baja silver. The Heavy Duty Bead Locks feature a wide rim that extend further over the sidewall of the rear tyres to protect the tyres in all conditions, and especially as the Baja slides through corners and across rough ground. They are a great way to extend the life of the tyres, and are available in a variety of colours to enable you to match any custom colour scheme!

Finally, we can’t let the awesome good looks of the Baja SS go unannounced. Not only do you get the option Gunmetal Anodized Main Chassis, you get a full range of bright orange anodized aluminium 6061 T6 that are specific to the Baja SS. To top everything off, you get a clear bodyshell set that is totally ready for your custom paint scheme! Go for a cool subdued ‘urban camo’ paint job, a nice flame colour scheme or throw your own custom racing paint scheme on the Baja SS to show off just a bit!
