Default What companies make hop up parts for the Baja 5T?

Hi all,

I recently added a used, but like new, Baja 5T to my collection as car number 26. I did a forum search, but didn't find much. I'm trying to find out what companies are out there that make hop ups for the Baja 5T (bajas in general). At this point I know of Integy, Turtle Racing, Darksoul, Skunkworks, and HPI obviously. Are there any others out there building quality stuff? It would also be nice to know which companies/products are GOOD and which are junk. While I don't plan on doing many hop ups to this thing, because it doesn't seem to need many, I know of at least one or two I need to do. A list of the mandatory hop ups would be cool too. So far, the only mod done is the HPI tuned pipe. I know this isn't the best power producing pipe, but I wouldn't have wanted one of the ugly and exposed pipes anyway. Thanks in advance for any help. Oh, I will be driving it off road mostly with some asphalt driving too. I live in FL, so there is lots of fine sand, but that's not the surface I plan on driving on most of the time. I figure I'll be about 50% dirt, 40% asphalt, and 10% sand. I know this matters as to what hop ups I do, so I figured I'd throw it out there.

Nastboys and wyattroa, thanks for the waste of time posts... Just so you know, I did google it, and mostly only BS forum converstaions come up. Badboy2, thanks, but I already know about DDM. Bbuzzard, thanks, I knew about LargescaleRC, but not TGN. I'll have to check TGN out. To all others out there, USEFUL posts are still much appreciated.

Thanks Badboy. I know most of the available stuff is on DDM. I was just curious to try and find all of the manufacturers available.

most of the manufacturers were baja owners..so they knew what needs to be improved .and they got big!if you go to some events like the bajafest you meet all these great guys!

gbe,jetpro,cpi & victory rc for pipes..oneill bros,esp, dog pile racing and trevor simpson for engine needs.woodster for 5t body these are some i can remember..i didnt touch my rcs for 2yrs now.im kinda out of the loop.lol
hostile tires are the best although proline have wheels/tires too..i dont get anything else as for the tires..just go hostile tires!team chase got nice parts too..

At my last count there were 643 companies making aftermarket parts for the Baja platform. You can find most of them as mentioned aboved at ddm tgn and large scale rc. Now as the Losi has arrived on the scene the Baja innovation has almost ceased. There are very few New Baja parts being released in lieu of Losi parts. Now that doesn't mean that you can not find every single part of a baja in aftermarket.

WOW 643 companies!! That's crazy. I've found that it does seem like DDM is the place for just about everything.

DDM has a good majority of the items but don't rule out TGN and Large Scale RC as they each have some specific items that only they distribute!!!!
