Welcome back to the channel, welcome back to rc vlog guys we are back with the hold on hold on here we go here. We go bam. The rustler and the vortex we’re actually going to drive them for the first time today should be fun, so i got q tip with me. Uh q tip is going to be on the driver, so basically we’re going to load the load. The batteries up, we’re going to drive them, then we’re going to switch and then we’ll just see which one we like better, which one we think is better so i’m, not really testing anything in particular, just how much fun we have driving these things. I mean we’re going to have fun either way, but yeah should be a good time we’re going to be running both of them on 3s batteries. Let me show you guys: the batteries real, quick, all right, so we’re going to be running on the batteries that they pretty much recommend um spectrum does make. This is like the battery for the car, except for they make 100 c1. The reason why we’re using the 50c is because it’s going to be the closest comparable one to the traxxas, so this is the 5003s 25c. This is the one that traxxas recommends in this car. If you want to run 3s – and this is the 3s 5000 50c, so a little bit more c, but you get it it’s like the car, the batteries that belong in the car.
There is the vortex and there is a wrestler. Oh man, i’m. I basically pep talked evan already and just said: look let’s, try not to flip these bodies put these cars over because these bodies i mean look at them guys they’re, just oh they’re, they’re, amazing, all right guys. I know this is kind of a weird shot here, but this is a lot of wind and i’m gon na have to get that’s the only mic that can handle a lot of wind, so we’re driving these now so you’ll be able to see in this camera. Over there, while we talk in our faces, are you ready bud? Oh that’s, a lot of break? Oh really, evan. There was one patch of water like guys, i don’t know if y’all can see that patch of water there’s one patch of water and evan goes right through the middle of the water Music. Oh that’s, fast, that’s super fast. Look, it stays down to stay stable. Are you giving it are you giving it the beans bud let’s go buddy. We got ta beans, it back crusty. Oh, i don’t know. If this one’s faster or not all right, let’s drag race again, just make sure you stop break the curb go. What do you think uh, you think mine’s faster, oh they’re fun, though they’re actually really stable. I thought it was gon na be like it’s, not like the oh that’s, a lot that’s a good break.
You got no break there bud all right. Let me let let’s switch let’s switch these all right. Why all right here, let’s switch them so that one’s fun that’s fun to drive it’s stable um. Oh, i kind of feel like this. Has more beans? Okay, all right! This has a lot of beans bud. I can’t, i don’t think i can say that one is faster than the other. What do you think they both got to pass yeah they’re about the same sorry guys we keep going behind this pole but i’m trying to stay in the shot. Um go go! Oh, you wheelie all right, let’s, just let’s just run them all right here this. What we’ll do let’s put them side by side and then let’s run to that pole over there and then around this pole and then back here in two wings exhale and hit the pole. You excellent pull your ground for life. Oh god, i almost hit the ball. Oh, this is the pole. You got ta worry about hitting one scared of crap, i mean there’s, they handle so well. I get that it’s a parking lot, but so the tsm works here you can really you can get. You can just get on it right. You don’t have to worry about like this one, the the rustler actually drifts a little bit. Well, you don’t have to worry about it. Spinning out or losing control like you can just pull pull the trigger as hard as you want.
Yeah it dude they’re, stable here. Let’S switch again bud. I turn the brake down, so be careful, i ease the brake, but i don’t need it hard. So this i feel okay, so this is. This is my take the um, and this is going to be weird, because typically, the car, with the bigger motor and esc, would do this, but i feel like the rustler has more punch don’t, you agree evan. What do you think, like the uh? The vortex has a little bit of a delay whenever you punch it. Uh, maybe it’s, that 50c battery, but it it’s like it’s like the um. The throttle curve is more there’s more of a curve it’s, not linear. Like the rustler, like the rustler, you you give it you give it the beans, it goes right. So all right, i realized what i just said: probably didn’t make any sense and it was because it didn’t make any sense. Sorry, you guys are like swaying like crazy because of the wind um but yeah, so the throttle curve on the vortex is more curved right so on a linear throttle curve. Basically, where you put the throttle, is where it’s going to go so on the rustler like as soon as you pull full throttle, it’s it’s like going full throttle, whereas the vortex it seems like it kind of ramps up. So i feel like the the throttle is touchier on the on the rustler. However, both cars, you can just grab the throttle in and uh and rip it like remember.
When we did this, when we did the scent and the slash 4×4, you couldn’t just grip it and rip it. The scent would just lose control um. I think the abc did a lot of made a lot a huge difference with the vortex. The vortex does have a tendency to pull wheels. Actually, the wrestler will pull wheels too um, but i think it seems like the the front end. The front end wants to come up a little bit more on the vortex, so evan just picked up the the rustler right after he drove the vortex and he’s pulling wheels like crazy again, because the vortex you can, if you just grab it and punch it, it Doesn’T just take off right, it’s, not a delay, but it’s like the throttle curve is exponential and not linear or the rustler is completely different. Both cars by the way very stable, very easy to drive very fun um. I could do this all day long. Actually, i want to go pull it. Let’S let’s race, bud all right on your mark set go. I just rode a wheelie all the way across parking. Lot. Let’S go back in pretty good, but there you go that there’s, a comparison like they almost feel the same speed, what’s your thoughts having they feel the same speed yeah. Oh thanks! Thanks for elaboration, if you had to okay, if you had to race me in a straight line which one would you rather have um vortex, really you think the vortex has more power yeah and you can punch it and you won’t pull a wheelie.
All that you won’t live that’s. True, it won’t flip like on a vortex. When you pull the throttle, the front end will come up there. That was full throttle, so the front end will come up, but it will kind of just walk. You don’t have to worry yeah there you go so that was full throttle um. It will just come up, but it what it doesn’t like flip backwards. Here let me try that one yeah, so evan is scared to get in trouble by flipping it over which he won’t really get grounded for life. Yes, oh oh did you see that i just scratched it so that is evan made a great point there. So right, then, i basically punched it full throttle from a dead. Stop the wrestler flew all the way back and landed on its lid. You cannot do that with the vortex, at least with this 50c battery you just can’t, sorry guys, y’all are moving a lot there. You cannot deal with the vortex. The vortex will actually come up, but it will like basically won’t flip all the way back. I don’t know if it’s, because the wheelie bar or if it’s just the way the way the power works, but it won’t here i’ll show you i’ll i’ll, do a better shot. I’Ll show you this evan driver all right, so evan is driving the vortex. Now, like punch it just full throttle, see how it it comes up.
I’M. Sorry, i’m, behind the behind the pole. Here it comes up, however, like it doesn’t it doesn’t fly all the way back right there. It goes again it kind of just kind of just skates up there it’s weird it’s, almost like it has a center diff, which it doesn’t make. I don’t know if it’s a slipper but like you don’t, have to worry about it, flipping all the way back, which is nice it’s good for evan, especially when my one request is that we didn’t flip these things. Over now let evan drive the rustler and you’ll, see the difference, go ahead and grab the wrestler buddy um in the rustler yeah a moment of silence for this uh beautiful, beautiful body, um it’s, probably not gon na, go well there. Well, when it comes all the way up where it looks like it wants to fly back, try to bring it down. If you can alright, but go ahead, full full throttle. Yeah there you go there you go. Did you see that, like basically it almost like jumped it jumped off the ground? It’S got so much torque it’s got it’s, so touchy. It’S super fast it’s not hard to control with your finger, but if you’re gon na hand this over to someone who’s, never driven an rc car before, i feel better handing that car over, because it won’t just flip back and and basically all that’s happening is you’re. Going to scratch your body up, but when you got a beautiful body like that, oh god so clean when you got a beautiful body like that, it kind of hurts a little bit again, not really a problem, but just an observation.
As we drive both the cars side by side and alternate so just saying not saying just saying that car is easier to drive what’s that car, which what color vortex the pink and purple one look at the camera bud. Oh i’m, looking at the car, okay that’s the way, it’s easier to drive but it’s slower than that car, which is really hard to drive, really hard. Well it’s harder. If you pull punch it, but you feel like the wrestler is faster yeah way faster. I don’t know why i’m not looking at the camera all right, we’re in a little different position here. Sorry about the sun in the background made it kind of dark on the ground, uh evan you’re out of the shot now yeah try to stay from between here. Um so yeah evan when i asked evan basically i said all right: let’s run these batteries down. I said which one do you want? He wanted the vortex, but it’s, probably because he’s just scared to flip the rustler over, but look the rustler drifts see if you can drift with that one sure yeah so that’s. Also, a good thing like you can take a turn at a pretty good speed with the rustler and not flip over same with the vortex. These are great cars for oh, i just threw a rocket myself uh. These are great cars for for beginners, especially if you just want to go like a beginner that wants just a super fast car.
These are great because, like they don’t speed, they don’t traction roll. They don’t speed, they don’t traction roll. They handle really really well. They got a crap ton of power man. I have a hey: what what is the highest speed of the car, so they do about. These are ready to do about 60, 65. Okay, but they’re not geared to do that right now, we’re, probably we’re, probably doing like. Maybe 40 right here: oh there we go, we had a. We had a spectator, see that’s why you guys should always drive in public areas because it exposes the hobby. So he was definitely intrigued with uh with these cars. But yes, so, like the these slashes that’s like the short courses, they will flip over at these kind of speeds, but these stadium trucks do not. The monster trucks will flip over. Oh, he he hit me took me out. That’S fine um, the stadium trucks will not. So i think for a like. I highly recommend either of these trucks. For someone who is relatively new to the hobby. That wants something super fast. I mean grinder, where this is on pavement but pavement’s, where you’re gon na get the most traction right, um yeah there look. I mean look at that watch i’m gon na i’m, just gon na kind of gun it right in front of it. We got look. We got another spectator over here, oh man, there’s, so much fun guys.
We should have drove these at the parking lot races. Oh, do you hear that the uh? I guess you can’t, because the mic is facing the wrong way, but the uh the vortex, makes tire squealing noises yeah. So whenever we say that the russell is harder to drive, it’s still super easy to drive right, like i’m, not i’m, not having problems here. All right, let’s let’s, take a look at the cars we’ve ran. Probably i would say, half the battery pack down i’m curious to see the tire wear on the scent and the tire wore really bad tires were really bad. I don’t know how this one is so let’s let’s take a look at the cars yup evan’s drifting skills are on point. Oh, he he buckled that time come on buddy. You got this nice very nice control drift. He can do this. He can do it with the vortex, also Music. Oh very nice, oh man! These are awesome man. What a beautiful night to be driving rc! Look at it! Oh man and it’s like perfect temperature, maybe 70 degrees, oh it’s, a great way to end the weekend. Oh yeah, this is fun, so the verdict is there’s, not really a noticeable difference between drivability granted we’re driving on the asphalt but they’re, probably going to handle the same on dirt. We’Re going to do some more we’re going to do some dirt tests um. But in regards to just driving around like, if you have this car you’re driving around in a parking lot drive down on the street there’s, not really much of a difference between handling both cars, lots of fun all right here – they are side by side after those Runs i was concerned because the set and the tires were down really fast.
I do feel like they improved these tires. These tires the rubber’s a little bit harder. Look. It doesn’t look as worn down on the sentence: i’m, not joking. Maybe after the second run, it was like no like it was noticeable after the first run, but second run it was. There was already bald spots, i mean we were ripping this thing. Evan was drifting it the tires are holding up. I think they improved that man. They they got it this. This is a good one guys i like that wrestling 4×4, just as we expected still looks like new, barely any tower wear these tires do feel like they’re a little bit softer uh, but tire wear is really good. Both the cars so much fun, guys so much fun. All right, guys, well that’s a wrap. I hope you like this video guys we’re gon na do more testing with these cars. I promise it’s not over and we’re gon na do potato reviews on both of these, but man they’re cool.
