I had a lot different plans and you’ll see that in the beginning of the footage, um but plans change things happen, and fortunately i got something in the mail today boom the arma granite voltage, it’s a little two wheel, drive truck finally added an arma to the Fleet of rcs and man did. We have a good time with it. So stick around to the end, see the footage of that it’s. Pretty cool hope you guys enjoy Applause, so ordered this guy 10 000 kv supposedly brushless motor and i was going to put it and this guy baby digger as it turns out the fury, tech, lizard and tju use four millimeter bullet connectors the motor 3.5. According to the comments i got on, my community post posted it – i don’t know an hour ago, maybe longer, which is a bummer, because that was my plan for today’s video. I was really excited. I waited over three weeks for this little motor to get here and it doesn’t work. One of the comments said: get an adapter they’re ordered thanks for the advice, uh, the overwhelming response learn to solder it’s, not a bad idea. I actually really like that idea. Problem is, i don’t, have a soldering tool and that doesn’t really help me right now. I do want to learn to solder now i’m sure i’ll pick one of those up, but for today we’re gon na switch it up. So, among all the projects i got going on i’m, not sure which one to work on keep an eye out for a video soon here in the next couple weeks, i got this little uh horizon hobby jet boat i’m.
Not gon na do a review on it. Necessarily but i’m gon na try and fish with it. Hopefully that works um. You guys remember the last reddit review we did. These might look familiar. These are the wheels that were posted by mama mama, something shoulda looked up, your name. Sorry i want to put those on the redcat gen8. I also got some scale accessories net crate boxes, a little shovel, maybe we’ll make a video on that. I don’t know got the uh scx 24 right here, it’s for the 2000 subscriber giveaway excited for that. What else we got going on got some rc’s some parts, a mountain of receivers and controllers, temporary workstation projects etc. A couple rc’s down there, a couple more over there x max parts tools, you name it up there, hmm. What did we film today guys? I guess i guess we’ll just work on the redcat that’s boring, but until i can get this uh adapter here for baby digger that’s, really all i got planned let’s check it out all right, guys, great news. So i got a package in between filming this morning and filming during my lunch break uh. First, we need to take a look at all the cars i already own. Well, the brands i own anyway, all right guys. We got the traxxas x, maxx, kyosho, mini z, panda hobby, losing nightcrawler, redcat, everest 10 wl toys, a bang, good special element, rc team associated charisma, axial rgt.
We almost got them all, but there’s, one big brand that i don’t have yet arma. Finally, adding one to the collection – it might not be the best one in the world, but we’re definitely going to take a look at the granite voltage, ready to run all right, guys, the arma granite voltage. This is the first arma i’ve ever owned. We’Re gon na bust into it take a look, and now i understand that the granite is, i believe, the cheapest armor they make comes in at around 70 or so it certainly isn’t gon na be the best truck in the world, but i figured if i’m gon Na own, an arma, i got ta start somewhere and this one looks fun i’m excited to check it out so we’re gon na unbox. It take a look, maybe take it for a little rip, and at least it gave me something to film today, as opposed to just working on the red chat again. So i can already tell right away with the remote that this is not the most quality car. In the world, this thing is uh, very cheap, looking very cheap feeling super lightweight, it does have a cushion which is nice and i guess, if it works, then it works. What’S in this box, what’s in the box. Applause, oh it’s, supposed backwards inside we got batteries for the remote, which is nice, even though i don’t always trust these. They can leak or they’re, never great quality.
If they give you free batteries, uh and then charge cord looks like it has one of these little blue plugs, i forget what they’re called and then we have the actual truck and the body has some flex to it when you lift it by the body. Of course, the manuals a little tool to work on it and some shock spacers um. I got the blue, i, like the blue, i mean it that’s, always going to have blue or red on it, no matter which one you get, but i like the one that had mostly blue with a little bit of red body, feels like any other plastic or Lexan or whatever, whatever you call this but uh decals are nice, little touch, got some characteristics for character and then we’ve got the actual truck. So the chassis on this thing is odd. To me, i’ve never seen like a a tube shaped chassis where you actually put the battery inside. I don’t know if this is common for arma or they just went with this styling. Maybe other brands make chassis like that too, but the tray holds the battery slide. It in which is kind of a bummer, it limits what you can put in there. I know you can run this on lipo, or at least i think you can comes with a nickel metal, hydrate, 1800 milliamp hour 7.24 or 7.2 volts. Excuse me can’t talk today, a decent chunky size little motor in there it’s brushed, get the esc and receiver combo here a decent little servo we’ll see how fast that is, and that’s pretty much it it’s a nice, hard plastic, nice and rigid um, but it’s just Kind of a weird design i’ve never seen that before, so it is rear.
Wheel, drive only it’s a little two wheel drive truck tilt it down a little, so you can see better. Um has pretty decent suspension. Definitely not oil filled tires are pretty good size. They’Re. Nice and soft good soft compound, i, like the look of the truck. I think it’s got a cool little like you know: basher style to it, but uh yeah i’m, just curious as to what kind of lipo battery i can use in this. So you can run a lipo right there, lithium ion as well just move the little jumper from there’s lithium ion in the middle and then lipo at the end off and on switch toggle switch and it looks like that’s about it. Pretty simple got the heatsink. I say we hook the battery up to it and take it for a spin, see what we think for you. No time has gone at all, but for me about five minutes passed, because i wanted to see if one of my 2s lipos would work. This is a venom, 5000 milliamp hour, 20c discharge, 2 cell lipo and, as it turns out, it fits absolutely perfectly. It is right on the edge of that line, and you can see it just sits in there perfect and it will fit in here like it was meant to. It is awesome, guys, look at that. He even shows the 5000 right in the middle, so that’s very exciting, we’re going to run this with the lipo.
I just got to switch the jumper over to lipo, which is at the end boom just like that, and we are ready to run it so let’s. Take it outside and give it a rip all right guys of course, it’s going to start raining right when i get out here, but we got the truck on, we got the lipo battery in it. As you can see, the steering is pretty slow and sluggish. I’M. Probably going to need to upgrade that servo, but it looks like we’re going to have some decent speed out of it. So let’s take it first.
