    Just got my 5B today. I was sooooo excited I took it right to the track to run a few hundred laps and forgot my camera :( I will post some pics soon. I am extremely pleased with the performance of the car it is great. I am completely hooked on this car it is the most fun I have had with an RC in a while.

    Isnt that a Freaking BLast. and think , no tuning, or very little being new, no fuss no muss. sounds like you had a riot, grab a few things like outerwears for the air filter, use quality 2 cycle oil at 25:1 - 32:1 and have a blast.

    The stinger was already off I got it used the motor was even broke in it starts on the second pull cold and first pull warm.:) I plan on ordering the outerwears and axle extenders ASAP. The guy I got the car from said he bought it last summer will HPI send me the newer wheels and shock shafts or do I have to buy them because I am not the orig purchaser? The guy I got it from also only ran it 3 times in his backyard there was not even a scratch in the chassis.

    as long as you have the old things yes. make sure you ahve the yellow rear foams, and the single ribbeb rear rims, take pics, call HPI and let then know you have a baja that has the old foams/rims and they should get you taken care of.

    Congrats dirtkiller, I just did the same thing... Fun huh?
    I definitely need to get a can or pipe fast, It really is a dog with the stock can. And after having the DDM on my MT its hard not to see the difference. Can't wait to upgrade how about you?:)
