Designed and developed over the past 18 months to best cope with the stresses of powering this 1/5th scale car, the final conversion kit is a direct fit in the 5B and 5T. The motor mounting is a light, solid and strong solution for the Baja and is supplied with all the assembly and mounting hardware to replace the Baja’s gas engine with an electric motor. The set also includes a 5mm shaft adapter to fit the pinion gear and the battery case design is suitable for 2 packs of 2S cell LiPos for 14.8V, 2 packs of 3S cell LiPo for 22.2V or 3 packs of 2S cell LiPo for 22.2V.

Speed Passion Europe were in touch to issue a statement regarding the use of their latest V3 motors at this year’s IFMAR sanctioned events. Due to an administration oversight these EFRA and ROAR legal motors are not on the IFMAR approved list (PDF) for 2010 and therefore can not be used. The reigning touring car World Champions have stated that their V2 motors are still on the approved list and racers wishing to use these motors can contact Toni Rheinard to arrange the use of them for those events.
