The New BAJA 5SC SS LIMITED EDITION

The 1/5th scale Baja 5SC SS Limited Edition is an unassembled kit for racers that like to build their vehicles from the ground up. We added the high performance Power Control Slipper Clutch for drivetrain protection and improved handling through extra adjustability. Baja racers have been asking for a kit that allows them to use their own aftermarket engines, so the Baja 5SC SS Limited Edition is supplied without an engine.

POWER CONTROL SLIPPER CLUTCH

The big addition to the Baja 5SC SS Limited Edition is the Power Control Slipper Clutch (PCSC). It uses three heavy duty clutch discs to absorb drivetrain jolts for extended drivetrain life and reduced maintenance. The PCSC also improves handling performance, just dial in the spring tension to track conditions for smooth and controllable launches. The amount of slip is easily adjustable using the included wrench and a new easy access gear cover. Included with the PCSC is a precision machined hardened steel 57T spur gear for maximum durability that rides on a ball bearing for long life. For custom looks, the aluminum outer plate is red anodized and laser etched with PCSC and HPI logos.

 

ALUMINUM TUNED PIPE SET W/ HD STEEL HEADER

The Baja 5SC SS Limited Edition includes a high flow aluminum tuned pipe with steel tubular header, which combine to make an ultra efficient tuned exhaust system that fits securely inside the roll cage. Need to quiet things down a bit? We’ve also included a stock can muffler just in case.

 

HIGH RESPONSE CLUTCH

To withstand the additional power of aftermarket engines, the drivetrain is set to Super Heavy Duty specs. Our race proven 8,000 RPM clutch is included, providing high RPM launches and capable of handling high horsepower engines. Massive 9mm dogbones are paired up with super heavy duty diff shafts and drive axles for a bulletproof drivetrain. The front end of the truck is beefed up with HD front wheel hubs that eliminate the use of e-clips. Updated rear hubs aid in both the durability and adjustability of the truck, allowing you to easily go from 0 to 4 degrees of rear toe-in to precisely tune the handling.
