When the designers at HPI released the original Baja buggy to the public, we didn't realize the absolute storm of popularity it would enjoy. Racers everywhere loved it, reviews from all over the world absolutly glowed with enthusiasm, shops ran out of stock and brand new companies sprung up to make wild hop-ups for this one-of-a-kind machine. We had just as much fun tracking all the praise as we did for the Savage monster truck! Most encouraging of all, though, we heard back from customers everywhere about how much they enjoy their Baja, which is the best thing we could possibly expect.
After all that, you'll understand that when it comes to updating such a legendary car, you can't mess with the magic too much: we wanted to give our fans more of the same, without going overboard. It was a tricky subject, but we're sure we got it right on the money.
The Baja 5B 2.0 gives you more speed, better acceleration, improved handling and THREE fantastic new looks! The awesome gray-anodized look of the Baja 5T truck comes to the buggy, with all of the main aluminium parts now anodized a cool, sleek gunmetal colour. The body is now available in three fantastic new designs: bright red, cool blue and subdued gray.
