I know i am hope your kids are well hope. Your family is well and you are in good spirits today youtube. We have something new to the channel. We have a new arma creighton 8s brand new. Just got this in not too long ago. Got it on a good deal, so i couldn’t pass it up. New to the channel. Um could have bought the new exb roller could have bought the new 8s crate, and roller could have bought all that. But i had this for a while. I bought this way in january and it’s just been sitting on the patio uh just because the box is so big it’s just been sitting in the storage on the uh in my storage uh at my shelter in the store. So once again, this is the armor creighton 8s. This is a huge truck, huge, huge, huge truck, very big. I want to give a big shout out to horizon hobby for looking out for me.
So a little background on this here is when i took this out of the box. I was looking it over checking everything out and i noticed my rear drive. Shaft was brilliant my mind you. This is a brand new truck hadn’t even been open, had just took it out the box and just was checking everything over that’s. Why it’s a good thing to check your rc’s over before you run them, or do anything that way you can call them right away and um and see what kind of support they’re going to do to you. Well, let me tell you: i’ve been calling horizon hobby every time. I bought something new and i had an issue and i haven’t had a problem with them, yet they haven’t said no we’re not going to do this. No we’re not going to do that horizon hobby has a shop in ontario california, i’m in long beach, california, which is about two hours away from me, so the stuff they don’t have there yeah. I got ta get back in there. I think it’s arkansas they’re arkansas’s warehouse, but everything usually comes from right here, ontario for me, and i get it quick within a couple of days so anyways i was checking the truck out. The only thing i could find had no leaking deaths, no, nothing. The only thing i could find matter with it was the rear drive. Shaft was bent. I said that’s strange. How do i got a rear drive shaft bent um.
The qc is not that good, because you know all these are made overseas and they’re pushing them out. Hundreds and hundreds by the day, so the qc is not that good on everything, but as long as you call them up and explain your situation to them. For me that is, i said for me, that is, i haven’t had a problem, so i called him up. I told him the issue, he said no problem, he said which one do you need. I said it’s the rear drive shaft. He says. Okay, is your information still the same? I said yeah i’m. Still at the same place, my address is everything’s the same. He said. No problem you’ll have one. In a couple of days: um went to the mailbox, got a tracking number went to the mailbox, but you know rear drive, shaft, no problem. No questions asked took him three minutes to do it, write it up boom. I was off the phone and that’s what i like about them horizon. They do me right. I haven’t had a problem with them, yet a lot of people say they have problems with them and their returns customer service and trying to get parts. Well, i haven’t had one yet so maybe it’s just me, i don’t know but anyways y’all. This is arma creighton 8s. This huge big truck. I only did a couple things to this so far. I don’t plan on doing a lot to this.
All i did was put the uh xmax bumper on there and then extended it out a little bit past the uh past the front of the truck. So it can hang out past the front of the wheels. So it does do some protection. Uh put a custom. Willy bar on here bought it from ebay, big nice willy bear a willy bar excuse me. It acts like a carry handle too so that’s. What kind i liked about it. Okay, um, like i say i just went over the whole thing check the diffs just checked everything make sure everything was working correctly, make sure everything had the right fluid low on fluid. So i had to fill them up to this up, which is normal. You get it ready to run that’s how they are you got ta, you know, do a little maintenance on them. That’S that’s just the nature of the beast when you’re blind ready to run instead of building it up from ground scratch, like i usually do but uh this when i pieced it out, it was a little bit too much for me to piece it together. So i decided to buy one. It was a lot cheaper just to buy it. So the only other thing i did to it: i’ll pop the top and show you which you really can’t see because it’s internal, but i got the orange one. I think it looks really nice. The paint job looks really nice i’ve been looking at this for a while, like i said i had this since january.
I just never brought it out and just finally doing a video on it because it was just tucked away inside the storage and my storage isn’t, where i stay so so once again: armor creighton 8s. Let me pop the top nice body. Roof skids on it. I’Ll put some other skids on it. I got some um, these other uh skids i have bought for my arma another armor. I have uh typhon and the um 4s. They just some like roof skids. You could put them on they’re protected or i can get bigger ones, but anyways. Let me pop the top show you all the inside i’m, pretty sure you’ve seen a lot of these already. I really do nothing to this because i’m gon na leave it pretty much stock for those that haven’t seen. This is what it looks like all i did was put a different pinion in there and i put a center diff locker in there. The diff locker came from bulletproof chassis, bulletproof chassis that’s, where i bought the diff locker from so this does have a diff locker. In the front i mean in the center – and i just uh – updated the fluid in the front and rear put heavier fluid um all stock nothing’s been done to this. Nothing fancy just giving y’all a look at it. I forgot to do a video of it. Um 1250 uh kv motor success, csc firma all set up. I put my xt90s adapters on it because i run xt90s on everything so yeah the rear drive shaft was bent, so they sent me a new one.
No problem, yep i’ve got a new drive shaft. That was the only thing i could find a matter with it. Everything else was looking good drove it just up the street just to test it everything’s fine, a lot of power i’ll do some adjustments in a while, but that’s. All i did to the bumper was just extend it that’s it for right now, that’s it uh. I went to t bone racing to try to find a chassis protector, but they were out and some other t bone parts but they’re out of them. So i’ll wait until they get them in stock i’m on that mailing list, so i’m gon na get to get notified. Well, yeah yeah! This is it. This is it. I guess this is the version two or version i don’t know what version it is, but there you see it there, but they did come out with the uh as roller. It has a couple upgraded parts. But if i already have this, why do i need to buy the roller, for i don’t need it. I i don’t need it. I don’t need two of them. I don’t have two of nothing i’m, not one of the guys that buys two of everything. So i just have one of each truck and that’s it i don’t need the roller. The system is good enough for me for what i want to do with it i’m, not trying to make it no speed, speed machine like some of my other cars but anyways y’all.
I just wanted to show y’all uh creighton 8s orange edition new to the channel. As well new to the channel as well, well new to the channel to you guys but new, not new to me because, like i said i bought this way back in january last year, so or this year i should say so there. It is y’all a good. Looking out horizon for the support, as always, send me out a new drive shaft and uh yeah that’s it yo that’s it. So i want to say thank you for checking out the videos.
