I think i think so. Obviously this is day one, so this was sent to us, but just like everything, we’re always completely honest. Our patrons are the reason we can be honest about anything because we’re not worried about making companies mad. Although um thanks patrons arma rocks, you know they kind of kill it in many ways. Uh. This is abby’s vehicle and i thought because well it’s supposed to be mine, it comes in three different colors and as long as we were shipped the color that we were told, we were going to get it’s very much obvious, although i would enjoy it too. But i’m claiming it the most abby appropriate vehicle um ever hitting the channel. I need to cut my finger. This is the arma vortex it’s, the newest 3s um arma vehicle out now and it’s kind of amazing. What is this i don’t even know all all we were given was a name and a color. I was never given a name, it has all of the spectrum, smart technology uh packed into it. You have telemetry and it comes in under 400., which is amazing for something like this. I love the color that i was supposed to get and i got it so yeah. Okay, thank you. So the reason we waited to unbox this part, which is very unusual for our channel, is because we wanted to get a pretty natural response and reaction on camera too. So this is a stadium truck it’s been a long time since we’ve had a stadium truck on the channel, a good one.
At least i feel like it’s, been years like multiple years yeah since we’ve got an actual stadium truck. I thought we recently had one and compared it to the team durango that we had. You remember that i guess so yeah so hasn’t been that i feel like it’s been okay. I want to say before we open this. If you guys plan on getting one of these and family friendly content means something to you, then i am just going to ask politely that you consider using our link in the description box below because it doesn’t cost you an extra penny, but it does help support Our channel and our family, so if that means something to you, if you don’t, have a local hobby shop that you like to support, something like that, basically view us, as your local hobby shop, we’re, just an american team trying to make it work here. You ready. Yes, let’s go it’s waiting for you to finish that everything always looks so good with the lights reflecting on it. Whoa you guys are in for a treat. Someone got mad at me because i ripped the plastic off before it was out of the box. I guess that’s bad luck, that’s what they said. So you take it out of the box and then you take the plastic. This is cool. Wow! Look at that guys! Popeye. What do you think buddy hey? Look at this? I came prepared with my zip tie cutters and no need to tricks, wow that’s, a good looking vehicle.
I love this wow about time arma that is like abby written all over it. Well, you know man, those guys race, these colors, which is really cool. I i love it though wow i think there needs to be way more rc’s in this color that look like that. Yeah now i like that red white and blue that they have going on, but what’s the third out of curiosity, did it show on here yeah it’s on the other side, oh okay. Oh i like that that’s, a blue and green and white. Oh yeah. I think i like that red and blue and white, pink purple and white and green blue and white we’ll have all three versions linked down below okay. I think you got the best setup. That is the best looking one in my opinion, so this is a brushless setup. It’S 3s four wheel drive, it has spectrum yep that’s gon na have abc what she means by that we say spectrum as a catch all now, because it has all of the new spectrum active vehicle control telemetry on board. If you don’t know what telemetry is it’s amazing, basically it will let you know a lot of things, but the most basic and oh, my goodness, i’m just trying to get it out of the box. So we can show that yeah. It has. The battery level indicator right here, so you literally know how much how much percent of battery we have left guys used to say, and there are still advantages to like gas and globe, but they used to say one advantage.
Is you could pull up? Look at your fuel tank know that you had half a tank left. What happened buddy, i think he lost his toy under the couch. You know now batteries you have on these vehicles ready to run vehicles. You know how much juice is left. Oh that’s, cool that’s, really cool arma okay, i don’t know if this is like legitimate family friendly, but you know what that looks like right. You know shaped like it looks like so i’m, not going to say it for advertising. Uh purposes sensation. Well, you know monetization. I should say what is it it’s, just a it’s, a tool: yeah it’s, a wrench but it’s, really cool it’s shaped like a you know, i’m, not going to say it because of monetization, but that’s awesome, that’s, a tool that’s your wrench and everything that’s i mean To me, i’ve never seen that before. So this is really awesome and i don’t know how arma has ever done. This they’re they’re putting extra um they’re, giving us more rubber bands for our body clips, that is, nice, yeah, that’s cool good on you arma and this wheel, wrench. Look. It just fits perfectly over those and that’s fun. That’S, pretty cool we’ve got different size spacers for uh shocks. We’Ve got a different gear, so it can probably hit the 60 miles per hour. Yes, i don’t know usually there’s an asterisk i’m sure speed, achievable and optimum conditions on 3s with optional pinion gear yeah.
If you don’t mind i’m going to go ahead and take these off, oh, i got a little couple wrenches on there too. Sometimes arma body clips are the hardest to pull off in the world. These are pretty good. Everything looks really like, tucked in and tough on here, like even that spoiler on the back, hopefully, durability factor is really high. We have a new bashing place to run this. We call, i think, we’re, going to call it bash mountain yeah here nathan, look! Look how it draws nathan. He has flip flops on too there you go my gosh yeah, and you need to give credit to whoever said that first, because if i can find it it’ll pop up, that was good. If not, i hope you know who you are speak up because bash mountain now, like 20 people didn’t explain, they said that bashing, the or our old hills so wait. Wait. Did i have a wheelie bar? Did i see no okay? I thought i saw a battery in there, at least in my no there’s an ic5 battery connector. This will work with ec5 as well and they make converters um, also there’s a ton of kind of wiring on here too so that’s nice. So we do have a plastic uh frame, chassis, yeah, uh and i feel like that’s, our first plastic chassis of arma in a long long time, maybe if ever uh. Well, if ever i mean basically anything in fact, there’s a lot that have plastic chassis, uh for armor arm has been focused on well, the big rock, i think, has a plastic chassis doesn’t it the uh, even the remake.
I think a lot of the short course trucks have plastic chassis, some guys, love the metal chassis, some guys hate the metal chassis. So there you go plastic chassis. I love that it has the dust cover, like wrapped all the way around it, so that’s going to help keep a lot of dirt out. Of course, your brushless setup, the esc, is pretty sizable in there. I love the heatsink and the fan on the motor it’s. Like overkill it’s huge and it has a wheelie bar – yes, it does. That always makes me happy, i think, for a 3s basher. This is just cream of the crop as good as it gets just perfect in every way and arma has been completely killing it lately. Over the last year, maybe a year and a half, maybe two years some could say they’ve. You know traxxas has kind of been up here right for a long time. Everybody knows that uh, whether you want to admit it or not, which we don’t like admitting it they’re, just a horrible company. We’Ve admitted it all the time they make good products, bad that’s, exactly right. It needs to focus more on rc than ip. Yes very well said arma just kind of shot: past traxxas in the last year so and so i’m guessing they’ve, learned and learned and learned and learned about what makes a good rc. And here we have a new release of a new 3s basher.
So i think that durability, factor and stuff should be high. It looks like it’s kind of you know, scrunched in a little bit, not so elongated like something like a creighton right, and so that means parts should be a little bit more durable. This should be a very hefty basher, of course, we’re going to do a speed test on this, of course, so make sure you subscribe and click the notification bell because uh you want to be notified. You don’t want to miss it. Yeah and bash mountain right. Bash mountain, it is nash, mountain and so because uh we haven’t broken anything. Yet. Actually we filmed a second vehicle, but no, we have broken stuff. We broke your uh mojave uh, just the standoff it didn’t really count, though something broke. That’S, like the wheel, is dangling off yeah um, we haven’t driven anything tenth scale at bash mountain, so yeah that’ll be a first two first, ten seventh scale and we did take your outcast. They don’t even know about that. Yet right everything’s out of order, because this just hit the market, so we kind of pushed things that we filmed earlier back. So we could show you guys this, because this is awesome very exciting, and just so you know we’re getting our hands on this the day before. So you guys are watching this. You know nice, thursday morning or later in the day, this is wednesday evening yeah. So we’re just getting our hands on this.
It just showed up in the mail, and i am i don’t care what people think or say there used to be a channel that used to be much bigger than us. That made fun of the fact that we focused on how things looked or if we mispronounced something well, the big thing, though we focused on the color of things, though we used to get made fun of a lot. We still do. We still do. I just don’t care uh. This looks amazing, i mean seriously, i used to say literally, like they even did the license plate. This is vortex, but it’s nice, like it’s, spelled differently that’s cool and then the don’t just bash glasses. The best brightest, pink and purple. They possibly could it looks so good, but it has like black and white mixed in there too. When you get b roll nate, you can see the lights reflecting out left. You guys can see that from this point of view, but it looks so cool with the blue reflection. How do the tires feel a little stiff? I think, but i feel pretty good, not too bad yeah i mean considering how fast it’s going to go. They need to be a little stiff, 60 miles per hour, but that’s with the gear. So hopefully we get like 40 45 48, maybe hopefully yeah that’s. That would be pretty impressive. So also you can run this on 2s too. You don’t have to run on 3s, but it’s designed to be a 3s basher, 3s yeah.
So i think that’s just how we’re going to run it right up so uh. Do you think they did the 21 because they brought it back in 2021? Maybe i, like. I feel like arma puts like some easter eggs on their vehicles, so i always like to really especially lately i like to look around and see what i can find because they do so. I like that. I just feel like this is, and i know it’s a little bit i don’t you know i don’t want to say, like i, you know a lot of girls like purple and pink a lot of guys like purple and pink too, but i feel like they at Least gave us finally another option like arma, always releases two colors, this time they release three colors and the third color is super pink and purple and like bright colors, it’s nice, i i say but like here’s strawberry here’s, the thing though you can’t you can’t, just Stick with pink and purple do like, yellow and blue or yeah. You got to think kind of like teal, colors or turquoise colors or um like even take this pink and mix it with like a lime. Green, like sharp things like that, like pink and purple, is nice, and i really am happy, oh very happy, but i don’t just do pink. That arma continues to try to focus on the more like girly, colors and uh. Do some more designs like that.
I mean wouldn’t, you love to see like a a felony that had like pink pinstripes or like even crystals or whatever you call them. Oh yeah. What are they whatever they’re called yeah? I don’t think they’re going to do that, but that would be nice Music. I just want to say arma if you’re watching keep up this good work. I love the idea of three different colors. More options are always really good. I hate when something comes out. Just has one color option, so you know unless it’s a really good color option. Um that’s, so cool all the electronics are packed into this and i’m excited to run it. So i know you are too actually i’m just excited to watch. Abby run it that’s, usually how it goes with the trucks anyways. Well, one more final shout out and just requests that if you guys do plan on picking one of these up or let’s just say you’re watching and you want to wait and see more content come out first and you you’re gon na buy another battery today or This weekend or you’ve got your eye on an airplane or a new helicopter or something you can use the link that we have in the description box below it’ll, bring you to horizon’s website, and then you can just search for the battery that you were going to Buy anyway and we’ll get a little kickback on that, so you know that’s a good way to support us and it doesn’t cost you an extra time there’s all kinds of ways to support us but that’s one of the best ways to do that.
So please at least consider doing that and on that note, for all the support that we get and just being able to work with companies and do this kind of thing occasionally and get stuff a little early for you guys. I want to thank god, because that’s just very awesome that we’re able to do what we’re able to do with you guys and for you guys. So thank you and also massive thanks to our patreon supporters, because we couldn’t do this channel and be brutally honest uh like if we go break something on this we’re gon na show you guys so that’s a big thanks to our patreon supporters. So, thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts. We will have another arma bashing video that is worthy of your time, popping up right about now.
