HPI Announces Super 5SC, Baja 5b, Flux and much more

 

HPI Baja Flux 5B

 

HPI offers up all kinds of new toys in Germany

Man look at all this new stuff HPI has had up their sleeve. We knew they were working on a brushless 1/5 scale as we reported that in the recent past. We also knew of some small 2-stroke type engine they were working on for an 1/8 scale. But what they have done is slapped that same 2-stroke into the extended Savage chassis. I am not sure what the demand will be for a 1/5 scale with such low power but hey….at least its 4wd.

Check out all the models of interest below and to see all their other smaller scale models coming soon click HERE.

The Savage drivetrain is super flexible, allowing HPI monster trucks to reach legendary levels of durability and performance! Because of this extreme toughness, HPI designers have Super-sized the Savage to 1/5th scale, taking the Savage to a new dimension! And when we combined this extra-large size Savage chassis with the all-new eXtreme Gas petrol engine, that’s when things really got interesting!

 

The all-new eXtreme Gas engine may be smaller than the Fuelie 23cc engine, but it’s also lighter, and powering a lighter vehicle than the Baja 5B buggy or 5SC truck (over 20kg). This makes it the perfect match for the Super 5SC!

 

  • 1/5th scale Savage-based short course truck
  • Savage aluminum TVP design
  • Savage bulletproof drivetrain
  • HPI eXtreme Gas engine system
  • 2.4GHz radio system
  • Front and rear Baja 5SC bumpers and mud flaps
  • Uses Baja 5SC body and wheels

The Savage drivetrain is super flexible, allowing HPI monster trucks to reach legendary levels of durability and performance! Because of this extreme toughness, HPI designers have Super-sized the Savage to 1/5th scale, taking the Savage to a new dimension!

The Super 5SC Flux takes the powerful Flux Tork 2200KV motor and Blur speedo from the amazing Savage Flux HP for truly impressive top speeds and plenty of wheel-spinning fun! The Super 5SC Flux is lighter than the Baja 5SC, so the power of the Flux Tork is a perfect match!

With specialized parts to fit the Baja 5SC body, bumpers and wheels, from the outside the Super 5SC Flux looks just like its petrol-breathing stablemate. It’s only when you switch it on and drive away that its secret is revealed!

Think of a standard nitro engine…and now imagine:

  • More than double the runtime…
  • Cheaper fuel costs…
  • Widely available fuel…
  • Easier starting…
  • No tuning hassle…
  • Quieter running…
  • Cleaner running…

 

The brand new HPI 1/8th scale Gasoline Engine engine combines these fantastic properties with all the excitement of an all-new petrol engine!

 

The HPI 1/8th scale Gasoline Engine engine is a gasoline 2-stroke engine with outer dimensions only slightly larger than a big block nitro car or truck engine. This revolutionary size will allow the HPI 1/8th scale Gasoline Engine to fit in RC cars where gasoline engines never could before.

 

So what are the advantages of this engine over the standard nitro methane-powered engines you’re used to?

 

Increased Runtimes

The HPI 1/8th scale Gasoline Engine will get at least double the runtime per tank of fuel, meaning you get more fun before refuelling and more bang for your buck!

 

Hugely Reduced Running Costs

Standard gasoline is much cheaper than Nitro fuel, plus spark plugs lasting much longer than glow plugs, so the HPI 1/8th scale Gasoline Engine engine allows the RC hobbyist to have extremely reduced running costs.

 

Widely available fuel

With the HPI 1/8th scale Gasoline Engine engine, it’s now much easier to find fuel at any full-size car service station, anywhere in the world. Simply fill up a fuel can and grab a bottle of 2-stroke oil and away you go to enjoy your car or truck!

 

Easier to Start

Just like the engine in the Baja buggies and trucks, the HPI 1/8th scale Gasoline Engine is extremely easy to start and there’s NO fussing with carb settings. Pull the starter cord and off you go!

 

No Tuning Hassle

Instead of worrying about things like temperature and humidity to fine tune a nitro engine every time you run your car the HPI 1/8th scale Gasoline Engine engine is much more tolerant with its carburetor settings. The on-board electronics provide fine control and do all the tuning work for you.

 

Much Cleaner

With the 1/8th scale Gasoline Engine engine, you no longer have to deal with the “nitro goop” that covers your car after running a nitro engine. With a lower oil-to-fuel mixture compared to nitro methane fuels, the HPI 1/8th scale Gasoline Engine engine will run much cleaner making it easy to clean up your vehicle after running.

 

A Complete Engine System

The eXtreme Gas engine system isn’t just an engine – it includes the engine itself, electronics to keep the engine running smoothly and cables to connect everything. It’s a complete drop-in solution to adding loads of extra, usable power with a low running cost and maximum impact!
