The Unimpressive Appearance
Upon first glance, the GT fans m602 RC car fails to impress. The exterior design, while not completely lacking in style, exudes a certain degree of mediocrity. It is clear that the creators of this vehicle have prioritized function over form, resulting in a lackluster visual aesthetic.
The Disappointing Build Quality
Moving beyond its appearance, it quickly becomes apparent that the GT fans m602 is plagued by subpar build quality. The construction feels flimsy and fragile, raising doubts about its durability. The components appear to be hastily assembled, with little attention paid to ensuring a sturdy and long-lasting product.
The Lackluster Instruction Manual
One would hope that the instruction manual could provide some much-needed guidance and clarity. Unfortunately, this is not the case with the GT fans m602. The manual is poorly written and lacks clear instructions for assembly and operation. While the inclusion of a parts list is appreciated, it ultimately fails to compensate for the overall lack of helpful information provided.
It is worth mentioning that the GT fans m602 does come with a few accessories, such as a battery, decal sheet, balance charger, cross wrench, and spare body clips. However, the quality of these additional items is just as underwhelming as the car itself. The basic balance charger lacks advanced features and the spare body clips feel flimsy and prone to breakage.
The Subpar Transmitter
The transmitter, a pivotal component in any RC car, disappoints on multiple levels. It feels cheaply made and lacks the solid construction and quality one would expect. The LCD screen, while a seemingly advantageous feature, fails to make up for the overall lack of functionality and satisfaction provided by this transmitter.
The Unimpressive Performance
Finally, we come to the most crucial aspect of any RC car – its performance. Unfortunately, the GT fans m602 falls flat in this area as well. The vehicle’s steering is unresponsive and lacks precision, making it difficult to control. The throttle is equally lackluster, failing to provide the speed and power expected from a quality RC car.
As a whole, it is evident that the GT fans m602 is a serious disappointment. From its lackluster appearance and build quality to its inadequate instruction manual and accessories, this RC car fails to meet even the most basic expectations. It is a shame that a product with such potential ultimately falls short, leaving enthusiasts feeling unsatisfied and disheartened.
Then now is this a true 1/8 scale truck? Do you know what? I don’t think it is. Now here’s a quick comparison against the Armort Big Rock 6s, that is 1/7th scale, so this shouldn’t actually be that much smaller. But, as you can see, it is quite a bit smaller. And here’s a comparison against the Team Associated Rival MT10: this is a 1/10 scale truck, and I think size-wise, it’s actually closer to this. So, I’m more than happy to say I don’t think this is a true 1/8 scale monster truck. It’s actually a bit smaller. Although this might not be as big as stated, we’re not going to be unfair on it yet and we’re going to give it a fair chance.
Let’s talk about some of the chassis features. First, then, now we’ve got a big front bumper and it looks like we’ve got a couple of LED lights there as well. I’m a bit worried about this body because it does feel really thin. We have got a huge wheelie bar on the back, and these tires don’t feel too bad either. Although I’m not a massive fan of the wheels, I think let’s get the body off and let’s take a closer look underneath.
Underneath the Body
So taking a look under the body, then now when I did a community post after receiving this truck, a lot of people said it looks like an old friend. Now I say old friend, but I’ve never actually owned one, and that is the JLB Cheetah.
The Borrowed Parts
I can’t help but notice that a lot of parts on this 1/8 RTR RC car have been borrowed from another model that has been around for a few years. I vaguely remember seeing it ages ago, but I never actually got one. And now, as I scrutinize this car, I can’t help but feel skeptical about its performance.
Sure, this thing boasts big oil-filled shocks that actually feel really good. However, many people have pointed out how weak these standoffs look. One big jump and I’m pretty certain those things will be breaking in no time. And that’s not all. We do have some metal shock towers, front and rear, as well as some metal steering components. There’s even a metal top deck and a metal Center Drive Shaft. But amidst all these metal parts, we still find plastic components. The quality of the plastics on this car is quite disappointing. They feel brittle, and I don’t think they’re going to withstand much abuse.
Moving on to the electronics, we have a 3670 brushless motor and a 130 mpsc down there. It sounds promising, doesn’t it? Well, don’t get too excited just yet. The 15 kg metal geared Servo might seem impressive, but receiver-wise, things get a little weird. The car comes with a receiver that has an inbuilt LED controller. Now, call me old-fashioned, but I think I’ll be swapping that out for my own receiver. It just doesn’t sit right with me.
Falsified Speed Claims
According to the website, this car is supposed to reach a speed of 80 km per hour, which is about 50 mph on 3s. But let’s be realistic here, folks. I highly doubt we’re going to witness such velocities today. Some might accuse me of always moaning or being negative, but let me assure you, I’m actually helping you out here. It’s better to have realistic expectations rather than being let down by false claims.
And there you have it, my candid review of what I deem as the worst 1/8 RTR RC car I have ever reviewed. From the borrowed parts to the questionable durability and the electronics dilemma, this car falls short in numerous aspects. It’s always important to thoroughly analyze and consider various factors before making a purchase, and I hope my insights have shed some light on the real performance of this RC car.
I often receive criticism for being negative in my reviews, but I believe in speaking the truth. If you choose to spend your hard-earned money on a product, you deserve to know whether it’s good or bad. It’s as simple as that. However, if you don’t like my honest opinion, there’s no need to leave unpleasant comments. Just click away and find another video to watch. With that said, let’s dive into the review of the M602, which happens to be the worst 1/8 RTR RC car I have ever encountered.
High Speed Promises
The manufacturer boasts that the M602 can reach a speed of 50 mph. Exciting, right? Well, let’s put it to the test and see if it lives up to its claims.
Flashing Lights, Frustrating Connection
Upon unboxing the M602, I was pleased to see the LED lights on the front. They added a cool touch to the overall aesthetics. However, my enthusiasm quickly dissipated when I attempted to connect the car to the remote control. For some inexplicable reason, the connection just wouldn’t establish.
The Battery Debacle
To troubleshoot the connectivity issue, I decided to examine the included battery. It turned out to be a complete dud. Despite attempting to charge it and waiting patiently, one of the cells refused to reach the correct voltage. It was evident that I had received a faulty product right from the box.
Resorting to an Alternative Solution
In situations like these, it is understandable that faulty items slip through quality control. I wasn’t going to hold it against the manufacturer entirely. So, I replaced the defective battery with one of my own three s packs in hopes of finally seeing the M602 in action.
Finally free from the battery troubles, I took the M602 for a spin. Sadly, the performance was severely underwhelming. The car struggled to reach even half of the promised 50 mph. It appeared that the manufacturer had exaggerated its capabilities.
Drawn to a Disappointing
After extensive testing and encountering multiple issues, I have no choice but to conclude that the M602 is the worst 1/8 RTR RC car I have ever had the misfortune of reviewing. Despite its appealing design, the faulty battery and underwhelming performance make it a regrettable purchase. I strongly advise against investing your money in this particular model.
The Poor Range
Upon testing the 1/8 RTR RC car, the first glaring issue that presented itself was the abysmal range. Despite ensuring that the transmitter was switched on and ready to go, the car failed to respond from a distance of even 20 to 30 meters away. This lack of range was truly disheartening as it severely hindered the overall performance and enjoyment of the RC car.
In an attempt to troubleshoot the range issue, I decided to move closer to the car, hopeful that it would regain the signal. However, I was met with disappointment as the car only responded when within a mere 15 feet of proximity. The unreliable signal reception further highlighted the inadequacy of this RC car.
Not only did the RC car suffer from poor range, but it also lacked power. Despite the manufacturer’s claim that it was “3s ready,” the car felt immensely underpowered during operation. This led me to speculate whether the ESC (electronic speed controller) was mistakenly designed for 4S or even 6S usage. The possibility of this error left me hesitant to push the car to its limits, as it may result in irreparable damage.
Unsuccessful Speedrun Attempts
Despite my reservations, I was determined to make the most out of this RC car and attempt a speedrun. Unfortunately, my efforts were in vain as the car showed no promising signs of delivering the desired speed. The lackluster performance and overall disappointment continued to cast a shadow over the potential of this RC car.
In , the 1/8 RTR RC car that I had the opportunity to review left much to be desired. From its poor range and signal loss to its underpowered performance, this RC car failed to meet expectations. Considering the lack of functionality and lackluster experience, I cannot recommend this particular model to any RC car enthusiast.
The Lack of Quality Control
When it comes to reviewing RC cars, I always strive to provide my readers with honest and accurate assessments right out of the box. However, the 1/8 RTR RC car I recently had the displeasure of reviewing has left me flabbergasted. The lack of quality control in this product is simply astounding.
Now, I understand that some adjustments may be necessary when it comes to RC cars, such as fitting your own transmitter and receiver. However, in this case, it defeats the purpose of the review. Consumers should expect a fully functional and ready-to-run product, especially considering its price point. The signal issues I encountered with this car were nothing short of frustrating. Even with a 3s battery, the loss of signal was alarmingly frequent. I had to rush behind the car just to maintain a full throttle connection. It’s as if the car had a mind of its own, constantly testing my patience.
A Total Disappointment
I had hoped that perhaps the car’s performance would make up for its signal issues. Alas, my hopes were dashed yet again. This RC car proved to be nothing more than a disappointment. It failed to reach the advertised top speed of 80 km/h or even a modest 20 mph. In fact, the best it could manage was a lackluster 14 mph. For an 1/8 scale truck, this is simply unacceptable.
A Wasted Opportunity
Sure, I could have easily gone home and retrieved a 4S or 6S pack to push the car to its limits. But that wouldn’t accurately represent my goal of reviewing products as they are right out of the box. I don’t want to make changes or adjustments; I want to see how the product performs as it is advertised. In this case, the opportunity for a fair assessment was wasted.
Aside from the disappointing speed, the range on this RC car was abysmal. I couldn’t get any substantial distance before the signal would weaken and eventually cut out completely. It seemed to have a mind of its own, veering off course and abruptly stopping. This lack of control was not only frustrating, but also raised serious safety concerns.
In , the 1/8 RTR RC car I reviewed is undoubtedly the worst I have ever come across. The lack of quality control, signal issues, disappointing performance, and limited range make it an absolute disappointment. As a reviewer, it is my duty to provide honest and reliable feedback to my readers. And in this case, I can confidently say that this RC car falls short in every aspect.
False Claims and Disappointment
The anticipation was high as I eagerly awaited the arrival of the 1/8 RTR RC car for review. However, from the moment I laid eyes on it, my excitement quickly turned into utter disappointment. This supposed powerhouse of a vehicle failed to live up to its grand claims, especially when it came to speed. In fact, I dare say I could run faster than this sorry excuse for an RC car.
A Feeble Attempt at Off-Road
With a heavy heart, I decided to put this RC car to the test. But oh, what a calamity it turned out to be. This underwhelming machine couldn’t even handle a simple off-road adventure. It fell short of being a true 1/8 scale vehicle, leaving me perplexed and frustrated. I attempted to capture some off-road footage, but my efforts were in vain. I had to be within a mere 10 feet of the car just to make it move, rendering the experience more of a disaster than an enjoyable ride.
An Unprecedented Predicament
I’ve reviewed countless products in the past, many of which were far from perfect. Nevertheless, even the worst of them allowed me to find some semblance of joy or amusement. But this RC car? It was a whole other level of disappointment. Never before had I encountered such a complete lack of usability. It left me pondering my choices, questioning why I ever thought this could be a worthy addition to my collection.
A futile Attempt at Redemption
In a final attempt to salvage something from this abysmal experience, I decided to capture some footage up close. With each step closer, my hope slowly evaporated. The limited range of this RC car forced me to abandon any hope of capturing decent footage. My frustration grew, and all I could do was shake my head in disbelief. It became painfully clear that this RC car was beyond redemption.
An Unfortunate Ending
And so, my fellow enthusiasts, I’m afraid we must bring this review to a close. This 1/8 RTR RC car, in all its misleading glory, has been deemed a complete failure. It pains me to admit that I had hoped for better, but alas, reality has cruelly dashed those hopes. Perhaps with some modifications and upgrades, it could have performed slightly better, but the fact remains that out of the box, this RC car is simply not up to par.
Technical Issues Right Out of the Box
I don’t know, maybe I’ll do that in a future video, but today I wanted to test this RC car the way it came out of the box. Although this car was sent to me for free to review on my channel, I honestly don’t want it. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not being ungrateful because I genuinely appreciate what Bang would do for me. They have been one of my longest supporters on the channel. However, I wish this car would actually work properly, especially right before I finish for the day and go home.
I was excited to see what it said on the side of the ESC. I wanted to understand why this car was so underpowered. From what I could gather, it does look like this car is supposed to be 3S to 6S compatible. But unfortunately, it fails to deliver on this promise. The lack of power is evident in its performance, leaving me thoroughly disappointed.
When it comes to an RC car, the performance is the key factor. Sadly, this car falls short in every aspect. From acceleration to top speed, it simply lacks the power to impress. Maneuverability is also a major letdown. Even simple turns feel sluggish, and the car struggles to maintain control, impacting the overall enjoyment of the RC experience.
An Unfortunate Dilemma
It’s disheartening to have high hopes for a product, only to be let down by its performance. As an RC enthusiast, I strive to provide honest and unbiased reviews to my followers. However, with this particular car, it’s a challenge to find any redeeming qualities. I feel torn between expressing my genuine disappointment and balancing it with gratitude for the opportunity.
Finding the Silver Lining
Despite the shortcomings of this RC car, I remain thankful to Bang for their continued support. I acknowledge and appreciate the trust they have placed in me to review their products. It is with this gratitude that I look forward to testing and reviewing other RC cars in the future, hoping to find a gem among the options available.
The Journey Continues
Thank you for taking the time to watch this review. This disappointing experience will not deter me from exploring other RC cars and sharing my thoughts with you. Your continued support means the world to me, and it motivates me to keep searching for the best RC vehicles out there. Until next time, take care.
