Welcome back to channel welcome back to rc vlog guys today, we’re gon na drive something a little bit different a little bit different. The other day my wife was at costco and she came across some rc cars and she was like hey. Maybe you should try this one out and it’s this guy right here i was like i don’t want to try that thing actually just see how it is. We’Ll see, you know, do a review on it, so she bought the thing and we’re going to do a review on this thing today, um yeah it’s. It looks interesting all right before we go on to this guy. We have to put this thing back together. I have to bind this up to my dx5c um yeah. It actually mined up pretty easy there’s. The six screws come off. You have to take the entire esc plate off to get to the receiver, but it didn’t need a bind plug or anything. This is the outcast 8s. This is the the fifth scale stunt truck super fun truck. I plan on doing a lot of. Oh man. Look at that a lot of large scale driving uh over the christmas holiday, so it should be a lot of fun, but yeah let’s put this thing back together: real quick, all right all bind it up. Oh man, they look so good. Okay, let’s check out this thing: let’s check out the box panels. First, this is the power craze shift.
24. I got this for 20 bucks at costco and speeds over 20 miles an hour 20 mile, our speeds over 2.4 gig radio rear wheel drive ready to run performance shocks. Oh no, those are hardcore 4×4 suspension, but not 4×4 by the way, high speed vehicle. Oh, look at that hobby style, rc body, hobby style, huh, real working head and taillights ages, 8 and up let’s see what we got here: proportional speed, control with lightning fast acceleration that looks like it used an actual hobby grade, speed control proportional steering control. I guess that means there’s, an actual servo, not just full, throw every time you try to steer, rear wheel, drive performance off road, tires performance, shocks for off road action, impact resistant material, additional set of performance racing tires included. Oh my god. We need more, more uh. Actual hobby grid kits to come with extra tires two speed settings for beginner and advanced drivers. We already know what we’re going to be doing. Look at the back of this thing: there’s the remote. You know what i want to open this thing: up: i’m, i’m, sick and tired of all the horseplay look real working headlights, good thing, because it gets dark super early. These days, all right i’m, tired of waiting, we’re opening this thing up man, my desk, is a mess, but look i have a knife actually i’m prepared to have a knife this time all right here we go the shift 24 power craze or is it the power? Query power: craze 24, oh i’m, just going to break it if i’m trying to rip it off it.
Let’S look like it has like a lexan body, i’m curious to know what kind of batteries is it charge on the usb here’s? What it looks like comes out of the box here, golly, my freaking desk is messy. As can be, i got to clean some of it guys drop me crazy, hold on hold on Music a little more sane. Now here we go oh there’s, a remote, so it just comes with the tires. Looks like you can just slide. The tires on um here is the remote it requires looks like it requires double a batteries which it did not come with the double a batteries. Hmm shame on them: that’s, not cool lame. So i got to go put some double a batteries in this thing and we got to go charge it dang it. I was hoping that i could just pull it out of the box and run it. You cannot pull it out of the box and run it um. Let me cut this off here. Oh, my god turned it on on accident. How did i turn it on? Oh, i guess that means it’s trying to bind here. It is a little car, a little suspension here, see if you can see the suspension travel a little bit. Not bad looks like weird. It doesn’t have body clips, but it has. A body post looks like it just kind of snaps on there um, oh, maybe it screws on there interesting little car does have suspension.
Look. The suspension looks very similar to like a one of those associated sc24s. I mean obviously not like shock filled. Oil filled uh, dampeners or anything um. Here it is right here, we’re gon na charge it up and then i’m gon na go find some batteries. So the way you charge it up is there’s, just a little port that you put in here i’m gon na plug this into here. So the charger doesn’t do anything. It just stays red i’m, assuming if it’s red it’s charging. If it turns green it’s, not charging we’re gon na, look that up real quick. It says here connect the other end of the usb cord in your computer’s, usb port or usb wall charger. The red charge indicator light when the shift is fully charged. Maybe this means the shift is fully charged because it is not turning off, maybe that’s what it is i’m going to do some batteries all right. I had some batteries handy, i can’t believe i’m reading the manual for this thing. I just want to make sure it did come with extra tires, but i don’t feel like these are different compound they’re just another set of tires. I guess in case you burn them up. Hopefully it burns them up, because this thing is super fast um. I put batteries in the remote let’s turn this thing on. Oh look, there’s a speed button check that out. It’S blinking turn this on. Okay, so look! This is low speed.
This is high speed. Whoa. Oh man, i’m ready let’s go drive this thing all right. I got q tip driving this thing. I’Ll i’m gon na be recording he’s still in his his pajamas she’s. This kid all right, evan ready go that way, so i did drive it. I did drive it a little bit. It’S actually it’s actually a decent amount of speed. I was actually kind of surprised how fast it was um. I did drive it a little bit. It doesn’t have like crazy torque. Oh, my god, you’re going you’re taking off with that thing, it does have a steering trim knob on the remote, so you can’t adjust the steering trim. I did have to adjust it a little bit um what it’s bad you don’t like it. Well, i adjusted it. You can always adjust the back. I haven’t we oh don’t, flip over that far car comes we’re, not going to see that thing, so i will admit it is pretty quick and i think that at least my initial impression is, if you bought this for someone who didn’t have an rc car, they Would be pretty impressed because it is pretty freaking quick, it does have working lights hold on a second. I think i saw something it looks like one of the tail lights is blinking, bring it over here, real quick, oh hold on a second. I think. I see that hold on wait all right turn evan, so that’s.
If he started left it’s a left turn signal. If it turn right to the right turn signal, that’s, actually pretty awesome, give it some throttle, it go in reverse and then it gets brighter when it goes in reverse so yeah. When i drove it, it didn’t have a crap ton of torque, but all right from a dead, stop and go to the street and just go from a dead. Stop all right. Wait not yet ready on your mark, get set, go nope back up low again and then just punch it full throttle and just go all the way down the street yeah. It doesn’t have a lot of torque, so it’s not like that blistering extreme muscle, car type feel, which we didn’t think it would but a lot of times. These cars are basically under geared, so they have a crap ton of torque. This one in particular, does not have a crap ton of torque. This is in the oh, this isn’t, the fast speed mode here, click the low speed button, there’s a low speed button right, there’s, a speed button. Okay, go is that low speed just a little bit slower, you can go, make it go towards us like, come all the way up up here to me and then slow down and then hit that speed button again see how the light got brighter. So it looks like there’s not much difference: okay, there’s, no car coming. It looks like there’s, not much difference between the low speed and the high speed here drive it this way evan.
So we don’t get the sun in the background there. So it’s pretty cool, but you know what rc is not as fun without driving with somebody. So let’s go get another car to drive real quick hold on all right, so i grabbed the car that makes the most sense driving. With this thing i mean i didn’t want him to drive alone, so i needed to grab a car that made sense to drive next to it. So so here it comes Music Laughter, some high speed tests here, oh it’s, going. Oh that has some traction right here. Let me try to flip you back over here there it actually worked. Are you on drag race? Come on drag race on your mark, get set, go that thing’s, actually pretty fast and it handled see. If you can go under the uh xmaxx sideways. Oh, you got ta hit the target bud. Oh, it can Music. Oh i got it. I got it. Oh, like flips it over perfect. It hasn’t broken yet either i’m actually kind of impressed with this little dude all right see. If you can keep up with me. We got ta, do another, drag race, go turbo boosters, oh my god. Oh man that looks so good. It’S not broke dude that thing’s a tank drive which one which one you want to drive ethan, let ethan drive the mini car. You can drive the x max Music, all right. I got the boys driving the cars now so yeah overall, that thing’s actually pretty cool.
So it has a two speed button. The steering is proportional, it does traction roll it’s fast enough to track your traction, roll, which is good um. I don’t recommend your partner car being a traxxas x max, but look it actually flips it over perfect. It hits off the arms, oh god, don’t – try to hit the x max you’re, not going to do anything to that, but yeah i’m actually pretty impressed we’ve already flipped it over a few times. It got ran over by the x max and it’s still not broken. It’S still trucking, the tail lights were super cool on it. Is it broken? No don’t think it’s broken that’s, just the suspension Music yeah. It actually held up pretty freaking. Well, so i do. I recommend it if you, if you have someone who doesn’t have an rc car, you want them to get an rc car. I mean it’s, even fun outside. I thought a little car like this would be only good for the indoors, no it’s, actually pretty fun outside too, but i know it’s kind of hard to see how cool that car is, when you’re driving an x max right next to it as cool as that. One right there – oh my god, come over here. Let’S get a shot of that x, maxx. Oh man that looks good. You could have flipped ethan over come on ethan come down here. He comes rolling flyby, oh, keep it on its lid, but yeah super cool little car i’m actually going to let the boys just kind of beat it up, we’ll see how long it lasts.
It didn’t come with any spare parts or anything i mean these are one of those cars where if it does break kind of just kind of just mail it in but look, oh god i mean it’s taken the beating pretty good. So and most importantly, you hear that you hear the amount of happiness and fun these kids are having with these cars that’s the most important thing so for 20 bucks i highly recommend not a bad little car for 20 bucks. Uh. Oh guys update it is broken. Yeah but it’s still driving colleague drive it back down here: ethan ethan. Obviously the camera can’t get it. Ah all right, let’s check out the wheel roll here it looks like the axles are bent uh, which makes sense. I don’t think that would happen under normal wear and tear or under normal driving conditions. In this case, a behemoth of a fifth scale. Monster truck ran it over so that guy, which makes sense, but i still recommend it – i think it’s pretty cool. You know i’m gon na try to straighten them out and see if we’re good. So this is what happens whenever you let your son record like drive the car while recording he drives it under the car, so you can’t actually see it jeez boy all right. Another update i tried to straighten out the the old wheels here the axles and i did break the front body post. Ah so yeah, maybe maybe it’s it doesn’t.
Last long. I still think it’s worth 20 bucks. I mean that was still pretty fun and you could technically super glue that thing or ca glue that thing back on, and i probably will so the boys can play with it, but it was. It was fast when it went right. Ethan all right, knock yourself out. Go have some fun it’s still moving it’s. Just it looks like it looks like it’s got a rumble hood on it. Well, there you have it guys the little power craze 20 dollar remote control car from costco, not bad it’s, not i mean it’s exactly what a 20 rc car should be like. So i hope you liked this video.
