Wow!, that's so cool!, its about time. I realy couldn't figure out why hpi discontinued the 5t unless they thought they were going to loose money adding the 5sc. That's good news, glad the 5t's back

I'd be careful how u deal with customs. Just be patient and fix the issues with them. I understand your frustration but if you make matters worse it won't help you out.

the problems isn´t the customs, i talked to them and they informed my what papers they needed. the problems is the company i bought it from, who told my there is no problem with the papers(even though i forwarded them the mail from customs clearly pointing out what they need), and now they uses 3-4 days to answer a mail......

but i still have hope:) at least putting the kraken cage together keept me busy for a couple of days...lol:)

I just checked Tower and I saw today they have gotten a shipment because the 5B's are now in stock. No mention of the 5T yet. 5SC's still say early september. I hope soon.

If you go to the hpi web site its there. So it should be available. When I looked it had the new body paint and graphics. I just didn't see a price yet and some pics weren't up yet but info under the spot where the pics should be was there. Also ddm says it will be back soon so you can count on there words

It looks like my dreams have been crushed......this is a direct email from Tower Hobbies

Unless Daves is going to carry it I don't know how else we can get our hands on one fellas.

Sir, We opted not to carry this Baja 5T updated version because the request for it was very low. Sorry, but we cannot get it for you. We appreciate your time and your business with us.

We have good news for you. We are doing a special order for them. We will have them. Probably not until early next year, though.
