Thumbs up HPI Announces Their New 1/5th scale - HPI Baja 5SC

New HPI Baja 5SC
Right from HPI:

Jump into the thrill of Short Course racing with the Baja 5SC truck from HPI! The Baja 5SC takes the HPI Baja line-up to the next level with a new SC-1 body that gives the Baja 5SC authentic Short Course looks. Adding to the durability and realistic looks is a new skid-plate front bumper and a large rear bumper with real rubber mud flaps. Power comes from a massive 26cc Fuelie engine that propels the Baja 5SC to speeds in excess of 40mph and it runs for more than 45 minutes on a single tank of regular unleaded pump gasoline. For extra traction on any dirt surface, HB Rodeoo tires are now standard equipment, mounted on new TR-10 bead-lock truck wheels. We increased durability with Super Heavy Duty 9mm drive shafts, updated rear hub carriers, and HD front hex hubs. A 2.4GHz radio system is standard equipment for precise control and long distance reception without the hassles of frequency crystals. It's all ready-to-run right out of the box, pre-assembled by our expert crew so you can hit the dirt quickly.

The only thing i find inventive with this is the adjustable toe in angles made easier to adjust than on the Bajas instead of the blocks that needed to be replaced to adjust the angles.

Adding 4WD would have been the deal maker...I'll pass. I'm sure that body will be $250 alone...

I agree! I don't know why companies set their vehicles up with shocks that are WAY too soft in the rear, too soft in the front, throw a SC body on it, and call it an SC truck. Suspension that soft does not make for good handling!

I've owned a 5b and a 5T and both were great fun, the new sc body looks even more scale. Only downfall is no local tracks support 1/5th scale racing, it would be great to watch 10 or 12 of these battle it out on a purpose built 1/5th scale track.
