The Baja 5B is fitted with externally adjustable VVC/HD shock absorbers on all four corners and a super-tough, high torque large scale metal gear steering servo. It’s got our ultra-reliable 2.4GHz radio system, big battery pack powering the steering and throttle servos plus a battery charger, so you’re ready for instant Baja action! The radio box is also fitted with the D-Box 2 Adjustable Stability Control System that will give you total confidence at any speed, on any kind of terrain you’re driving on. It’s perfect for driving on slippery surfaces with a powerful rear-wheel drive car like the Baja 5B, because you can change its sensitivity to make the car more stable as it’s cornering…or help it kick out the rear end for awesome drifting action!
The Baja 5B also features an extra-thick monocoque aluminum chassis, 700cc fuel tank for up to 45 minutes of driving before refueling, painted body in an all-new design and pre-mounted wheels and tires so you are ready to rock!

The D-BOX 2 is your Secret Weapon for perfectly controlled driving!
The D-Box 2 is a fantastic electronic aid for drivers of all skill levels, in any kind of RC car, on any kind of driving surface. Whether you take your Baja 5B out on grass, loose dirt, mud or ultra-grippy clay, you will get perfect control thanks to the magic of HPI Drift Assist technology! The super-small D-BOX 2 simply connects between the receiver and steering servo for an amazing difference in your driving performance!
The D-BOX 2 has an amazing feature that improves response over other driving assistance systems when the gyro sensitivity is increased (Patented steering operation priority system) using the provided Mode switches. This new priority system allows the steering inputs from the transmitter to have priority over the gyro. While the D-BOX 2 is perfect for all types of vehicles, this gyro correction is seen the most when used in high-powered off-road cars: increasing the throttle will not spin the car out, even in slippery conditions! The D-BOX 2 will also prevent sliding in sudden braking or steering.
