Baja Build Off - Hpi Baja 5B BUILD COMPETITION? WHAT!? - PT2

This HPI Baja 5B build has completely changed! In such a way that we are now being challenged by a fellow YouTuber To a HPI Baja Build off!!! ;)

That's right! We are no longer just doing some basic upgrades and and rebuilding this truck...but we are now building one of the coolest Baja 5B Buggies on YouTube! We were challenged by "DarkSharkz" On YouTube to build 2 crazy Baja Trucks. His truck is going to be a HPI Baja SC and Bret's and I's Baja will be a 5B Buggy.  When DarkSharkz challenged us to this build off their was no way we could say no! So both DarkSharks and myself set out to create some fun rules and get a few sponsors to help out with these two trucks to help really create some crazy looking trucks for all of are viewers!

I am totally looking forward to seeing how this all plays out, as i have never been challenged before with a time limit to create something that our viewers of the show wont forget! Haha. As you can see in the video Bret and i have started to accumulate some parts for a Baja 5B Buggy. Some of those parts include DDM'd Dominator pipe, RPM Control arms, Acer Racing Bearings, and other great goodies like the ProLine's Tires and Rims!
