Ground Shipping Items
Some RC Planet's products can only be transported under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only, and cannot be shipped outside of the US. These products include:
Non-Water Based Paint and Paint Thinner
Aerosol Type Products
Tire and Body Cleaners
Epoxy / Accelerators / Debonder
The US Postal Service will not transport ORM-D items, and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.
For All Shipments: Special labeling requirements are needed to safely transport any Lithium products. Certain large Lithium Batteries will always require HazMat handling and will only ship via Fedex. If you would like to know more about FedEx and the safety precautions taken when transporting Lithium Batteries, please refer to the FedEx guidelines.
International Shipments: Lithium Batteries are regulated as HAZMAT (Hazardous Material) products and can be dangerous if not packaged properly for transportation. In smaller quantities, Lithium Batteries can be shipped via DHL without applying a HAZMAT fee. If you'd like to ship more than 2 Lithium Batteries, a HAZMAT fee will be applied for transportation. Please note that DHL only allows transportation of HAZMAT / Dangerous Goods to specific countries, some of which have limited service areas.
The US Postal Service prohibits international mailing of Lithium Batteries, as well as electronic devices that contain Lithium Batteries. These new regulations also prohibit shipments to or from Army, Fleet, and Diplomatic Post Offices. Because of these regulations, no US Postal Service shipping options will be available during checkout.
Domestic Shipments: Both FedEx and the US Postal Service are available as shipping carriers for most Lithium Batteries and electronic devices containing Lithium Batteries. Please note that the US Postal Service has a limit of three batteries per shipment; you can refer to the Domestic Mail Manual for further information.
Fuel is classified as a "flammable" liquid. RC Planet can transport limited quantities of flammable liquid under ORM-D (Other Regulated Materials for Domestic transport). Shipping under ORM-D means that the product will ship via FedEx Ground only. For larger quantities of fuel (Example: case quantities), it must be transported under HAZMAT. Transporting as HAZMAT means that the amount of fuel is considered hazardous and will be subject to shipping by Ground services, including a HAZMAT fee for the special transportation. Fuel cannot ship outside of the US.
Please note that the US Postal Service does not transport Fuel and will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.
Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets are classified as Toy Propellant Devices and can only be transported through Surface Mail with the US Postal Services Parcel Post. FedEx does not transport Rocket Motors, Rocket Igniters and Rockets. Please note that FedEx will not show up as a delivery option during checkout.
International Shipping Restriction
Due to circumstances and regulations that are beyond RC Planet's control, batteries cannot ship outside of the US when using the United States Postal Service as the shipping provider. However, RC Planet can ship batteries internationally using DHL International, but the quantity cannot exceed a total of 2 batteries with a capacity of 5000mah maximum. Unfortunately we are currently unable to ship this item to APO/FPO addresses and apologize for the inconvenience.
Due to distributor restrictions, the following brands are not available for sale outside of the 50 United States: Losi, Team Losi Racing, Blade, ParkZone, ECX, Hobby Zone, E-Flite, Vaterra, Dynamite, Pro Boat, Spektrum, JR Radio, Orion, and Hangar 9.
RPM front A-arms for the HPI Baja 5B are designed around the stock A-arm geometry, which means they are direct fit replacements no additional parts or accessories are needed. The list of improvements from there is extensive! To start, we've eliminated most of the hard rib angles in favor of smoothly contoured curves that enhance survivability during extreme impacts. Both the upper and lower A-arms incorporate much larger and stronger corner webs than the stock A-arms while RPM lower A-arms have a redesigned center brace structure that helps the rigidity and strength considerably by spreading impact energies over a much larger area. RPM A-arms will hold their shape better and have less flex than the stock arms as well!
After extensive in-house review of 5B A-arms in stock form and listening to Baja owners, we found that the stock pivot ball socket tends to break out under certain impact conditions. We addressed this problem by adding nearly 15% more material around the diameter of the pivot ball socket and we redesigned the shape of the socket to add more support and improve crash survivability without creating any interference with suspension or steering movement. While we were redesigning the pivot ball area, we reduced the amount of slop in the ball socket to help improve and maintain more consistent camber and toe angles.
Another problem we encountered with the stock A-arms is the lack of protection for the very low-hanging front shocks. We've solved that problem in a couple of ways. First, we elongated the lower shock mount, leaving no part of the shock exposed. Next, we incorporated a unique lower A-arm skid plate that completely covers & protects the lower shock mount. This skid plate adds serious bulletproof RPM protection to the lower end of those extremely expensive shocks while adding strength and support to the whole lower A-arm. Additionally, these skid plates are reversible! Since the A-arm is angled up, only the lowest part of the skid plate (the rear area) will see the most wear. By making the skid plates reversible, the 5B owner can run the skid plates until they wear thin on the one end, swap them from one side to the other and they're good to go for more punishment!Â
We have found that a large percentage of 5B owners like to personalize and customize their buggies. That is why we offer these new arms in stealthy black and fully dyeable white options. With a little Rit clothing dye and some creativity, our white A-arms can be dyed to any color imaginable! Please see our website for a couple of tips and suggestions as well as photos of RPM dyed A-arms that closely match the Baja RTR purple and the stock Baja SS orange chassis colors.
