HPI Racing 2.4GHz Baja & High torque servo

Lots of new items from HPI Racing who have released new 2.4GHz versions of their Baja 5B and 5T. The latest version of the Baja 5B 2.0 gives you a 2.4GHz radio system, more speed, better acceleration, improved handling and three fantastic new looks. The grey-anodized look of the Baja 5T truck comes to the buggy, with all of the main aluminium parts now anodized a cool, sleek gunmetal color, while the body is now available in three fantastic new designs: bright red, cool blue and subdued gray. The Baja 5T remains the same but with the 2.4GHz radio system it makes running your truck safer and more enjoyable than ever. No need to worry about radio conflicts, crystals, or radio interference, this Baja is equipped with the latest spread spectrum radio technology that delivers worry-free driving. HPI have also released a new high torque SF-50 Servo that is a direct replacement for the SF-5 servo found on HPI trucks and buggies. High torque and a tough metal output gear give it the strength needed for applications like the steering of the Savage XL, Savage Flux, and Vorza Flux. If you’re looking for more torque, the SF-50 is an easy bolt-in upgrade for the HPI SF-1, SF-10, SF-2, SF-20 servos. New for the Ve8 is this one piece alumininum motor/diff mount which strengthens and simplifies your chassis layout. This part also helps support the center diff and the motor mount to ensure constant and positive gear mesh. Finally for the HB D8 and D8T, these new 1.1mm clutch springs are slightly stiffer than the stock, silver clutch spring with the extra tension on the clutch springs allowing the engine to rev higher before engaging the clutch.
