It goes fast. It flies in the air, it does jumps, it does everything pretty darn well, but it’s, not perfect. Nothing is right and that’s why rc review exists. So i’ll tell you about the five worst things about this vehicle. What you can do about it, how to fix it, and if is this, the right vehicle for you, okay, so number one is the radio. So this is the ready to run version and it came with this sdx to radio. It looks like a looks like a 20 radio, you know i’ve i’ve seen some 50 dollar rc cars from amazon and they have a radio and it kind of looks better than this, and it actually kind of performs about the same. The range is not very good and there’s a delay when you’re controlling a vehicle – i don’t know 12 15 pounds, you can’t doubt your controller and with this you’re, just not getting the best out of your vehicle. Okay in the 2021 version of the mojave they’re. Using now a better version of the radio, the dx3 – and i really have no complaints about this radio, okay, so let’s, take the covers off. The body is pretty darn good nice protection. I’Ll tell you about the good stuff about this vehicle in the next video now it’s, all about the worst stuff. Okay, number, two thing: that’s the worst thing about this, this vehicle or things can be improved, is the motor has no heat sink? It has no fan.
So pretty crazy, pretty crazy! So my first month i was just jumping this vehicle. You know throttle on throttle off. I didn’t notice it using 6s. So this is a 6s machine by the way and but as soon as i started, running oval tracks racing with people. This thing would overheat after five minutes, and i said what the heck is going on. Thank god, i didn’t break the motor because it has an auto shut off when it gets too hot and you can’t even get your finger near. It it’s that hot the uh it just shuts itself off, but i can’t imagine if i haven’t caused damage to it, because it happened like five times, so it needs a heatsink and it needs a fan come on guys. So luckily, those are available, but that’s an extra 30 and you have to wire it yourself and what not so clearly something they should have done because a lot of the other arma vehicles they have a heat, sink ant fan. I don’t know why this one, which needs it the most doesn’t okay, so nuts, two, the number three thing i’ll talk about – is the the hex nuts. So a lot of power on 6s i don’t know 60 70 mile an hour vehicle, but the hex nuts have come loose on me twice. I tighten it as hard as i can, but you know four battery packs later what happens? It gets loose and here’s the worst part.
The wheel, doesn’t fall off, it gets loose while you’re running the aluminum will strip the plastic wheel, you know and then it’ll fall off, but it by the time it falls off. The wheel is ruined and guess what the tire is attached to the wheel. So that’s, you know that’s, you can’t save that and then your hex nut is gone. Ah, so funny, okay, not really funny, but you know what the sad part is: you’re you’re having a good time then boom. You look at that problem, it’s game over there’s. No way you can fix that wish. There was a spare tire uh that was here. So you can keep keep running um, but it doesn’t. So i wish they had better hex nuts, a better system to keep these wheels on. You tighten it as much as you can, with their lit with their little wrench. I use a big wrench, but it gets loose after four or five times. Okay, so right now you just have to just crank it. I i got i’m getting after market nuts that are more serrated that will dig into the plastic and hold better okay, so that’s three number four is the the rear. Bearings are, are getting contaminated and getting loose and blowing out. So i’ve done it twice now, on the last go around, i had three batter battery packs. You know in a baseball i am on, so not no, no beating, but you know a lot of dust and the, but the bearings blow out the problem when the bearings blow out is obviously the day is over, but the the hubs, which is what carries the Bearings will will get so much heat that they’re going to melt as good as they are they’re going to melt so right here, my poor hubs and poor bearings.
I can probably save that bearing, but i just throw it away and i got better bearings better. Sealed bearings, but it’s still happening, so i think uh, the my the fronts have no problem, so i think you know i just need cv, cv, joints or universals in the back, so that they have a little bit of flex, so they are not blowing out the Bearings, okay, so the next thing, probably the next problem, is the servo. The servo is a 15 kg it’s, pretty good, pretty good. You know for 10 scale, 15 kg, i don’t know that’s, like 200 ounces per inch at best, but for a monster vehicle 60. 70. Mile an hour vehicle that’s, not good enough, come on guys, you need something that’s faster, something with more torque, and so when you replace that this thing will come alive Music and by the way it would be nice to have a gyro uh in this vehicle. No chance of a gyro here, i believe the new radio has a gyro. So so there you go. I mean, like i said, my favorite vehicle, but these these issues, the more you know about it because i’m going to keep recommending this vehicle. The more you know about it, the more you can address it and really save yourself, some some time and aggravation and some playing time with your arma mojave thanks a time. Oh, oh good, move, Music! Oh little push Music! Oh! What happened robin is racing side by side racing Music.
