    Default OHOs back in the Baja fraternity HPI Baja 5B SS

    Split my Baja up a few months ago now, needed a break from it, recently helped my Dad sort his mysteriously breaking clutch out and gave it a test, then the test turned into a bash and I knew I needed to get back in the game, so after doing a bit of looking round, I decided I was fed up of buying second hand lemons, so ended up buying this new.
    Huge thanks to Freeprawn for the great deal and fast post!
    Awaiting another couple of deliveries of parts then the build will begin.

    When I broke mine up, I actually made back a lot more than I expected.
    Still about 800 shy of what I had invested into it, but considering people said I'd be lucky to get 400 complete, I made 1,300 back selling it in parts and I kept my chassis, gearbox and some spares, cage/wing, bodyshell etc... I also gave away at least 100s worth of spare bits and pieces
    I'm already at about 900 with this one though, with the purchase price, TR clutch, V2 Dom, Silverback wheels, Hostile MXs, DS/Threshold bits, radio gear, battery etc etc... It creeps up on you

    Killswitch on, TR clutch on, Uber quick release 3 stage air filter on, Outerwears on, engine is ready to slot in.

    Also using my old 5b ss gearbox, it's perfectly working and fully serviced, so figured, why not keep the brand new one in parts for my spares box

    Just silver mate... Although a friend has told me he's selling a complete set of red I-RC braces and spacers, so I might just get that off him instead... Hmm, decisions decisions lol... My Hostiles/Silverbacks and V2 Dom landed today as well.
    Bit poor on HPIs front to give you a strip of foam for the front wheels, you'd expect for a 750 kit to at least have molded ones.
    Never mind
    I've got a battery volt meter for the pack as well Paul... Just need to figure out how low it can go before needing a charge lol.
