Default Baja 5sc truck

Hello,

Just finished building my baja 5sc truck. Finishing up the body as well. Do you guys recommend cutting a hole/holes in the front windshield or anything to allow air flow?

Thanks, Duc

Should be good without it. Don't be afraid to run it without the rear chassis guard... lots of crap gets stuck in there preventing air flow.

Start sourcing a new body asap, the stock SC body is the weakest I've ever seen, very thin. Mine cracked in a grass field roll over the first time out, flipped once and land back on the wheels

i've used Gorrilla Tape to strengthen the body,,,,,,works good as long as its either new or cleaned very well.cut the strips don't tear because of oil from your hands,,,,,,,,,,

Yep, this guy isn't kidding. Hop over to www.hpibajaforum.com and look through the 2nd tier innovator pages. You'll find bodies from Woodster and Tripp for sale, marked down as "blems." I'm currently running a Tripp TT Widebody, but my next will be a SCT body from Woodster, probably in black.
