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.
