I got 43mph on the 5B with stock gears and 23cc motor...I'm sure the SC/5T should be faster due to the tire size.

They claim 40mph out of the box but remember, alot of factors determine that..
Weather conditions, area, tune, tires, pipe ect..also I would thing the T and SC are a couple pounds heavier overall.
Your not going to get any speeding tickets with a stock HPI Baja.

Which pipe? The pigtail one? Worst...pipe....ever. Even an X-can is better for performance and noise. If you mean something else I'm not aware of, then my apologies.

The 5SC / T has a 19T gear opposed to the 5B having a 20T gear in the transmission. It is lower geared to make up for the tire size.
