Original price $895.00
Current price $849.00
Color: Red
This Rovan Baja upgraded model simply is the most popular 1/5 chassis to date. Compatible with 99% of the parts from the original HPI Baja 5B. Unlike the original, Rovan has pre-installed a 29cc 4-bolt petrol engine with a Dominator style tuned exhaust pipe for that extra power that all enthusiasts looking for!
On top of the power increase, Rovan made the drive shafts 33% larger, installed an aluminium clutch mount, steel roll cage, sway bars, MX rear tyres, NGK spark plug, Walbro carburettor and a 45kg steering servo for ultimate racing and driving pleasure!
Engine: 29cc Petrol powered
To power, this huge 1/5 RC car is this massive 29cc 4-bolt engine with an NGK CMR7H spark plug & a Walbro carburettor to give you the best performance and reliability.
17% More Power
Pre-installed is a steel tuned exhaust pipe that increases the performance by 17%! This pipe has a crisp note that adds attitude to your Baja 5B.
Motor Cross Tyres
Just like a high-performance dirt bike, this beast grips its terrain with these extreme motor cross tyres!
45kg Steering Servo
Rovan has drastically improved the steering power of the Baja 5B with a whole new servo that has metal gears and outputs 45kg of torque!
Advanced FlySky Remote Controller
Drive with precision with the FlySky GT3B transmitter! Featuring an LCD display, 3 channel, 10 model memory, servo end points. Also, the included receiver has a built in fail-safe so if something does happen to the signal (like a flat battery) the car will just roll to a stop.
99% Compatible With the Genuine HPI Baja 5B
The Rovan & HPI Baja 5B is 99% which means when you're purchasing a replacement part you'll have the option of purchasing a Rovan or a genuine HPI. On top of that, most of the aftermarket parts such as RPM RC will fit also.
