We speed test it drift, it jump it and give you our pros and cons. At the end of this video zd racing rocket. S16 review coming up: Music, hey what’s up guys i’m joe and i’m, amber with rc kiwis on this channel we’re doing it from bassy crawling speed, runs on box reviews and much more so if you’re new here consider subscribing that way, you won’t miss out on any Of our future rc adventures, this 116 scale, electric on road rc, comes in a brushless version and a brushed version in a variety of colors. We got the brushless version in blue and it comes in at around about 120, but of course, as always, we have a discount code in the description down below make sure you use it to save yourself some money and, if you’re smart and you hit that bell Notification on there could be a chance that there is also a time limited discount code to save yourself. Some even more money, so check the description down below for those discount codes. So this rc claims to be fast and furious and it claims it has a 40 minute run time with a speed of 35 kilometers per hour straight out of the box. So we’re gon na be testing that out very soon, but for now let’s take a look. What comes in the box so in the box comes the instruction manual which you should read your lipo battery charger, your 2 cell lipo battery your transmitter and, of course the zd racing rocket is 16.
man. I’Ve got to say i absolutely love the look and feel of this porsche, and it does feel a much better quality than the very popular sg1603 which we will be doing a comparison, video in the near future and starting off the body guys. It is your typical lightweight, laksam plastic. This car comes in blue orange and red. It comes with a big sticker sheet and a clear film over top of the cast so make sure you take that off of your car before you apply the stickers. I did get quite a few bubbles under my stickers, though, so i tried to use the hairdryer to get those out as best as possible. Another really cool feature with this car is: it has neon lights under here, um, a really cool spoiler at the back and overall, i think it looks okay, um i’m, looking forward to see how it goes well, amber let’s, look under the hood starting off with the Electrics, it comes with a 24 35 3300 kv, brushless motor and accompanying, that is a 30 amp esc receiver, combo and that will be plugged into a 2 cell 1 500 milliamp 15c discharge lipo battery, so the servo is metal geared and it has 2.2 kgs of Torque to turn these small little street wheels, they are feeling quite grippy, they are glued to the rim and there is no inserts inside now. One thing that stands out to me is the amount of metal that’s used on this car.
It has a very nice middle chassis that has cutouts to save on weight. It has a middle uh tower to tower chassis, brace and also the front and rear shock towers are also middle, so lots of metal on here this actually should be very tough. Looking at the shocks, they are basic, they are plastic with a spring. You can get shock spaces to adjust the tension in the spring and there are droop screws to adjust the ride height and looking at the drive train, it has front and rear differentials with a metal center drive. Shaft middle axles in the front are cvds. Meanwhile, the rear are metal dog bones. There are also ball bearings throughout this rc and i’m sure. There are many more features to talk about when it comes to this car, but not to worry as we’ll have this car linked in the description down below where you can buy it, and also we can read out more information on it. You know that’s enough talking amber it’s time we head to the skate park and take this assy out for its first round. Here we are on location with the zd racing s16 and we’ve also brought along the z racing ex07 that will be in a future video or a video that’s already posted, so make sure you go check it out if you haven’t already, so we do have a Bit of a skatepark over there – and we will check that out very soon, but before we go ahead and jump this rc first, we want to see how fast it can go.
Now. It claims 35 kilometers right out of the box. What do you reckon amber? 30? Kilometers an hour yeah, probably something like that: we’ve got the speedo on there. Damn we get this get the car on remote on first plug the battery in and turn the car on and there’s the gps meter theme in bob. If you want to know where to get that thing from it will be linked in the description down below anyway. Let’S get that body on and let’s see how quick this rc can go with 12 satellites let’s go track start and amber. We are good to go. Okay, this road is a little bit bumpy, we’ll test the suspension, okay. This is full, oh okay, that wasn’t me that was the road it’s. Actually a little bit hard to control, make sure there’s. No traffic Applause let’s see what speed we got. I’M gon na go 25 yeah i’m about 30., oh 28 right smack bang in the middle of the amber. Should we try on here and see if it goes any faster on this without oh see, oh yeah it’s got a little bit of a punch to it. A little bit of oh okay, there’s a bit of lag between the remote amber when you between your input and what you see there’s a slight lag. Oh whoa, read 29! Oh! I was like anyway that’s enough for that. Amber let’s get out on the skatepark. Do a bit of jumping bit of drifting and have some fun looking at the remote.
Yes, the speed switch is all the way up. You can turn that all the way down, if you’re, giving it to maybe a baby. Anyone that’s having this car you’re going to want to have it at full, full speed potential. All ready here we go. Oh, it was decent yeah it’s a little bit hard to line up. Whoa seems to be better at jumping and it is going fast look at this all day. It does claim 40 minute run time, so we’re gon na see that today, i’m gon na hit this big boy. Now this thing’s gon na fly i’m going for the backflip. This is cool. This is fun. This is good for a little part like this yeah i’m. Going to jump off this big one and hit that little one find the blue thing and then i’m going to do a drift and come back into the bowl with the back flip. Are you ready? Alright let’s go Music whoa. Do that again, it was a huge jump ooh! Oh, oh, this thing’s, actually quite durable isn’t. It look at that. I know the flies are all right and i’m surprised because it does have a bit of weight behind it, so i was actually expecting it to break. Quite early on yeah, i was thinking because it’s got a bit of weight to it, a lot of metal. If you had any big impacts, i was thinking the plastic might break, but so far it is all holding up all good.
Oh, that was awesome. New location, new skate park and check it out i’ve got to show you before there we have the neon lights and you can see at night time, that’s going to glow up nice and purple down so cool that looks so cool amber get into it. Okay, i feel a little bit more confident with this in the skate park. You can see those lights now, yeah. You can see the light that was really cool. That was full power too it’s. Actually, it feels quite quick in this little skate bowl. Should i try for a front flip – oh sorry, it’s landing on grass, which is definitely helping it. No, the body Music, Music, look at that beauty over here. We have it the zeta racing s16 porsche rocket, racer, whatever they call it anyway, guys it’s time we head home and let you know our initial thoughts and pros and cons with this rc. Well, that was a bunch of fun out there, even though it was cold, and we did not expect to jump this rc that high, but we just could not resist that temptation and guys don’t forget this car will be linked in the description box down below, along With the discount code, if you are interested just to save yourself a few dollars for those spare parts, if they’re needed now, let’s jump into the pros and cons starting off with the pros now, no particular order. Our first pro would be that this rc is pretty decent value for about a hundred bucks.
You can now see that it’s completely ready to run lipo battery and charge included. There’S four wheel, drive, metal, drive, shafts got ball, bearings adjustable right, height, brushless system. This rc is perfectly your first rc, your fifth, your 10th, your 50th rc doesn’t matter. This rc is great, though, for about a hundred dollars. The next pro is that well, this rc is pretty durable on the inside. We did a lot of decent jumps. Relatively big jumps and a lot of crashes and there’s absolutely no damage on the inside of this car. The outside is a different story. We did get some breakfast on the body. This is cosmetic. A little bit of glue that will fix it. Next would be that this rc is a great platform for upgrading down the line there’s a lot of space in there. If you wanted to get a separate esc and receiver, make this rc a bit faster, a bit quicker response with the control that’s, something that we’ll be looking at doing, it’s a great platform for upgrading and finally, this rc advertises 40 minutes run time and well. We got about 40 minutes anyway. Those are the pros amber it’s time to look at the cost. Now the number one con with this rc is due to lag input and when you’re turning left or right, it was about half a second delay which made it quite hard to control, and i did find myself uh over controlling it.
So it was getting out of control a lot more, and the number two con with this car is the speed is extremely underwhelming on the box. It says it can go 35 kilometers per hour. We got it to 29, but even advertised at 35. I think that this car would be way better if it went 50 to 60 straight out of the box. Overall, the rocket s16 is tough. It has a feature pack chassis and is great value. If your budget is around that 100 mark, however, the top speed may leave you unimpressed and the input layer can take some getting used to. But remember that is just our opinion. You’Ve got your opinion. We’Ve got ours, and that is absolutely okay and we’re interested to hear what you guys have to say about this rc so make sure you, let us know in the comments down below.
