Re: Need help with info on this Baja

Different wheels, plastic skid thingy on top of cage, aluminum (likely Integy) air filter cage are the things that I can see that differ from stock.

Your biggest challenge is to ensure that you are getting a real HPI vs a clone and that it's in decent shape. Even with a good looking over in person, it's easy to overlook something, and the cost of parts for these big rigs adds up fast.

Caveat Emptor!

Re: Need help with info on this Baja

Depends if you care if it is HPI or clone. There are certain things to look for for a true HPI . By the pics it looks ok. Make sure it runs and has good compression, +1 on costly parts lol

Re: Need help with info on this Baja

if its HPI its a version 1 with the purple chassis the shocks are only 4mm vs 6mm, and would probabaly need to be upgraded, i dont see any performance or durability mods, only cosmetic, the wheels as mentioned, and tbh i wouldnt trust that air filter setup on there
