I know this is a slot car page, but uh we’re gon na do a little unboxing here of a new toy. I got today the 118 scale, one rc these things have caught my eye for a while now and uh finally decided to pull the trigger and buy one so let’s get it out of the box and see what it has all right. So i got my kid here: he’s gon na help me get this thing out of the box. All right, pull it out, see what’s in there kid wow great, looking car just put it down over there we’ll cut the zip ties in a minute here. Let’S see what else we got in there – oh easy there he’s excited, i don’t think that’s everything i think there’s stickers in the box or another right here, yeah that what’s in here a nice decal sheet directions. I don’t need the decals either. I actually order a wrap for that that’s, not in yet, but it’ll be soon and it’s packaged. Very i nice out the controller wow. I knew i hear something in there. Controller hold the controller up, and this is obviously the charger. Oh and it comes with batteries. Yeah guys it comes with batteries charger. I already have an rc car charger, so i won’t be needing that daddy. This one is all right, so here’s everything it comes with in the box, your car. Obviously your transmitter batteries for the transmitter, that’s awesome and it only takes four i’ve, been wondering for years with all the technology.
Why transmitters still took eight batteries and i’m glad to see they’re, starting to only take four little wall, charger and decal sheet and instructions? Music? All right so here we have the car drive on here, quite as nice as i’m, hoping it would all right. I think i’m just going to take it outside and try and rip it around a little Music run. All right so got the review outside the track. Inside there was just a little too tight. This thing is a little faster than i anticipated, but what it trimmed all the way the left it still pulls right so that’ll be something i have to adjust right hand. Turning radius is real touchy left, doesn’t turn too good. My kid there on the power wheel, top speed, run Applause, what’s up kid wan na erase it hmm all right. Here we are back inside it’s, a little more quiet. I can talk about this thing. A little better overall i got ta say the looks, are a ten of ten. I can’t complain about the looks functionality i got ta give this thing, probably a four just because it’s very hard to drive it’s very twitchy for as small as it is. You actually need a good amount of space to make. The turns is a very wide turning radius for left hand turns you go to turn right, it’ll spin out on a dime, so that is very unpleasant. Um durability. I mean you seen in the video there.
I was messing with this front. End broke off the uh, the dog bone wishbone joint there, whatever it’s called a little little ball in pulled out of the chassis there. So i’m gon na have to give this thing a two or three for durability, because i was uh not really doing anything with it. No walls to hit, i mean it’s, not an off road car, so you’re not jumping it. So really you shouldn’t break apart. Just driving down blacktop, so uh yeah, not the greatest durability. Another thing is: i don’t really know if this is a true 118 scale, because it’s same size or a little smaller than the losi micro rally, which is a 124 scale and uh the 132nd scale. Micro t uh, 1 136 scale, sorry um, yeah, these micro rallies. I love these things, those things you can beat the hell out of them all day and they just don’t break. I can’t say the same about this and i’m far from a basher i’m, not a basher, rc racer. I do not like bashing, so that is uh no issue here i like to run a track. How it’s meant to be run? Um you know, run the car. How it’s meant to be run that’s, why i thought i’d be able to rip this thing around the oval here, because the micro rally runs around here. No problem micro t, but this thing just uh it’s, very touchy, very touchy, but uh yeah i mean overall, i got ta, say i’d say save your money.
I mean 200 bucks for something that’s, just a tick over walmart quality, uh for quality and durability. I mean looks it’s it’s off the charts, it’s unparalleled they put a lot of effort into making. This thing look great. I think they just got ta put a little more effort into making it run great and maybe be a little more durable, but uh yeah it just uh doesn’t drive straight. I tried trimming it out. I got to maybe adjust my servo saver a little bit. I didn’t do that, but still it’s uh, you know you would expect more. I would i would think you would expect more of a 200 car by no means a race car. I know that um i’ve been racing rc cars, since i was four or five years old, so i have my fair share of rc experience, but just as a from a hobby point entry level, whatever you want to call it i’d still say: it’s subpar um, aside From the looks, it’s it’d make a beautiful shelf queen, but other than that it’s about all it’s got going for it, but uh yeah anyway that’s my rant uh see you on the next one.
