After much abuse, and many years of racing - it is time for Everett to re-build his Kraken RC Class 1 TSK (True Scale Kit) for his HPI Baja 5T. This thing is FAR from Stock - and Ev wants to make it even STRONGER! By installing the Kraken X3 Chassis, new Fonzie-RC Beef Links for his arm suspension links, as well as an Engine from OBR Racing and a Vertigo Clutch Kit assembly - we actually got quite far in this episode. From a box of parts.. into almost a full roller - check it out as Everett and I bumble our way through the process! This thing is a BEAST!

HemiStorm Addict HPI Baja 5B bodyshell Time to give the HPI Baja 5B a facelift! Back to the roots of this 5th scale icon with a brand new buggy style body. Made from 1.5mm of the finest polycarbonate available on the market, this 5 piece body comes with a clear overspray film and completely precut and predrilled, all ready to get painted! Installation is easy. Slide the side mounting pins on your HPI Baja 5B to the most outward position. First mount the two oversized sidepods to the skidplate, as you would do with any of the existing buggy shells. Using the plastic studs and bodyclips the lower parts of the HemiStorm Addict body attach in the exact same way that you're familiar with. The front mounting points of the sidepods hook up around the front rollcage pins. Simply take off the plastic ring that sits there and slide the sidepods in place. Because of the additional length, the sidepods keep dust and debris away from crucial parts of your vehicle such as the clutch and pullstart. The additional width ensures sufficient cooling, and if you do want even more cooling there is always the option to cut the double vents on each side. The side pods on the HemiStorm Addict, although being larger, are less prone to damage. Underneath the skipplate there's a stepped line, allowing for that much needed extra ground clearance on rough terrain. The nose piece installs just like the original one. Remove the lightpods on each end of the rollcage to slide the top lid in position. The main section of the body comes with an uncut fuel cap, to make the HemiStorm Addict an option for HPI Baja Flux owners as well. There's an indication line on the shell to show where to cut the fuel cap opening. Slide the front in first and secure all the pins. Two lines over the entire length of the main section integrate the two lightpods in the design of the body, modernizing it and giving it a fresh look for 2014. The pullstart is well-protected and the Addict has plenty of room to install an Outerwears prefilter without problems. The raised front makes it easier to run upgraded linkage setups or additional electronics. The last part to install is the lightweight paintable roof. Undo the four screws, take off the stock aluminium roof piece and install the roof. The roof comes with four molded in raised lines, which act as a skid section in case of roll overs and add strength to the top of your Baja 5B. Depending on your upgrades, mostly side pipes, extra trimming may be required.
