HPI and Kraken RC bring you the best of both worlds!
Experience the Baja 5B like never before—fully loaded and wrapped in a hard-core Kraken Roll cage, just like the full scale racers. Fit a fully built and painted Baja 5B with a Kraken RC roll cage and you get one of the coolest, meanest RC vehicles around. A classic sand rail and a TSK-b Class 1 are both available with a fully functional polymer roll cage and polycarbonate body panels from Kraken RC. Either vehicle delivers the pounding power of the Baja 5B—equipped with a driven HPI Fuelie K26 engine and ready to take on the sands. They’re also armed with the latest heavy duty suspension and drivetrain components for maximum off-roading.

That being said I had some engine problems with the savage back then and I thought I would give HPI another chance now that their company is starting to do better again.
This thing was a blast to drive....was. After the initial break in tank of gas things went bad on the second tank. It would seem that all the important engine bolts were not assembled with any threadlock. It basically came apart while driving and caused some damage to itself and lost a few bolts.
I expected better quality in the assembly of this car giving the price. RTR should not stand for Ready To Rebuild.
On the plus side HPI does seem to be quite understanding with the problem and replacing the missing and damaged parts.
