HPI Announces Baja 5B With D-Box Technology And The Boss 302 Is Finally Real

HPI’s Baja 5B is now being released with its D-Box 2 installed and ready to make it more stable than before on all surfaces. Also included are items such as AA batteries for the radio, a large receiver battery with charter for the receiver and high performance gear like an 8,000 RPM clutch, 700cc fuel tank, and long travel suspension. Of course you also get 23cc 2-stroke gas power to get it rolling. We were very excited when the Boss 302 was announced at the Nuremberg Toy Fair (you can see the post by clicking here) and it has taken almost a year to hit the hobby shop shelves. Under the body you’ll find all the parts that make up the Baja 5B and tires and rims designed to tear up the pavement. You can find out more about both these awesome vehicles by scrolling down and checking out the press releases from HPI below.

Baja 5R 1970 Ford Mustang Boss RTR

Go big or go home — that’s the statement the 1/5 scale Baja 5R Ford Mustang Boss 302 makes when it’s heating up the pavement. At nearly 3 feet long and sporting a bright orange and black Boss 302 body, this car commands attention. Its looks are matched by its performance, thanks to a Fuelie 23cc 2-stroke gasoline engine. For decades the Ford Mustang Boss 302 has been the iconic muscle car, and HPI has replicated it as a big, bold R/C street machine.


The drivetrain is based on the super-tough Baja 5B desert buggy; the suspension is customized for on-road performance
