Description

Overview

The Baja 5B, simply 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 we're all 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 carburetor and a 45kg steering servo!


1/5 29cc 4-bolt engine
29cc Petrol Engine

To power, this huge 1/5 RC car is this massive 29cc 4-bolt engine with an NGK CMR7H spark plug & a Walbro carburetor 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!

FlySky GT3B
Advanced FlySky Remote Controller

Drive with the precision of 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.
