Rebuild: HPI Baja - EXTREME options
Today I will show you my HPI Baja. I'm almost done with the rebuild, apart
from filling the shocks and switching the headkit the car is back to life!
My Baja started out as the SS kit version, and has been quite heavily
modified over the years. I purchased the car in 2008, and spent lots of
time to get it to the point where it is today. A variety of upgrades are in
place, made by companies like Kraken, Gabe Brown Engineering, Turtle
Racing, DarkSoul and of course HemiStorm.
I explain which upgrades I installed where, show you some real one off
modifications like the GBE Endbleed pipe that I'm fitting, and show a few
pictures of what my car has looked like over the years. The HPI Baja was my
first 5th scale RC, and I've gotten to know a tremendous amount of people
through the forums. Some people have become real close friends of mine.

My first run with this beast, the highest temp i got was 240f on the Exhaust side of the head just above the
pipe, this was on it's 3rd tank with no breaks in between, very impressed
