HPI Baja Slipper for your 5b, 5t, SS or 5SCThis one came as a surprise to us. HPI announced on their Europe site they will be selling a Slipper Clutch set for their 1/5 scale baja lineup.

HPI has spent a decent amount of effort on HP parts and some are obvious steps to improve on current issues and are often just a replacement for of a stock part. This slipper clutch for your baja 5b, 5t, ss, 5sc seems to be the first item from HPI that took a good amount of R&D and leans toward the racing scene. Which to me is interesting because I have always had big dreams for the 1/5 racing and this part along with many others coming these days prove large-scale racing is here and HPI and others are listening.

I would like to see your comments below about this item and how it may work for you. Will you try this slipper for racing or will you find a use for it in everyday bashing?

  1. Im looking forward to getting this slipper clutch and using it in my EDM car i think it will help with on power control coming out of corners on loose tracks.

  2. I’m sure with the slipper clutch added it will improve coming out of the corners and save the drivetrain, I’m really looking forward to the release of this upgrade

  3. I’m anxious to get my hands on one of these I am very curious to see how it handles the output of the highly modded motors I run.

  4. look very cool and i bet works better than we can imagine, but the only thing i dont like is that fact you now cant use a two speed with this setup. as the two speed is a new ( ish ) item to hit the baja market i do feel that taking my two speed of the baja to fit this clutch is a step back. it would be a killer on a two speed too.

  5. I can’t wait to try this out on my 5SC I just converted to Electric. CC motor is hard on the drivtrain so i think this slipper will be the ticket.
