It was actually one week ago yesterday – and here i am already turning around – to sell this vehicle after three to four runs with it in this video i’m going to discuss why that is and hopefully help you guys decide that are looking to purchase a team karate Vehicle, whether or not to do so, these team corelli vehicles are all fun and games until you break something. I was able to run this jambo a couple times before stuffing the left front corner of the truck right into the ground, and i ended up breaking a rod end to one of the shocks i went online and looking at the websites that carried team karate parts. Three quarters of them were based overseas, especially now international shipping is absolutely terrible. Just last year i waited months for a part that i ordered and i wanted to avoid international shipping. So i only found like one or two websites that looked like they were based out of the us that could hopefully provide some faster shipping and only one of those websites had the part that i needed in stock. They wanted like 15 for the slowest possible shipping it’s only a five dollar part, so i was like no thanks, so i tried a bunch of different rod ends on this truck from like axial traxxas and arma i ended up settling with an arma hd shock. Rod. End turns out, Obwohl, that the hole that the shock shaft threads into is slightly too big.
I tried to take this out for another skatepark bash and it just ended up pulling out after every hit. Alles klar. So will this thing standing backflip i’m gon na have to go on some drier drier ground. Ich denke, and there goes the shock i’m gon na – try it again with a broken shock. I think it’ll do it, especially on the asphalt yep. There goes the uh pillow ball once again popping out, so i realized that the arma shock rod end wasn’t gon na work, so i actually went ahead and i tried to purchase the rod end from the one website that i found in the us that had them And i got a message back from them saying that they were actually out of stock they’re, supposedly in stock through team corrally chances are parts ordered directly through them are gon na come from overseas too. Also, wie ich sagte, i wanted to avoid international shipping. So if there’s a part that ends up being out of stock from team corelli, it could be months before i get that part for this truck it’s very challenging to find parts for these team karate vehicles, at least in the us part, Unterstützung, will vary depending on Your location, so if i can’t find parts for this truck in the us by now, i honestly don’t foresee parts support improving much in the near future for team, corralli and it’s pretty unfortunate, because i actually loved the truck itself.
I think the platform is great and you guys saw that throughout my recent videos, with it it’s a lot of fun to drive, it seems to be pretty durable, es ist, insanely, fast and powerful, the radio it does everything you need it to. It has all the basic features. It feels pretty good in the hand, no complaints there, i didn’t have any range issues which is great. As far as the truck goes. This thing is a flipping machine. I was able to get six backflips in with this truck. Full throttle did as many as i could, and that was a personal record no way i actually landed that so there’s the spring retainer i don’t know where the spring is, though i actually found it. I don’t even know what happened there to be honest with you, that was six backflips, ich bin, pretty sure again it wheelies and flips effortlessly. It does everything i think a stunt truck should, and it really does it well and the truck was holding up to everything. I was throwing at it when i speed tested it. ich habe 50 miles per hour with the boxstock set up on 4s lipo and then switching to 6s. I was able to get 60 Meilen pro Stunde, so that was really impressive. Jedoch, the motor ran a little hot, so that kind of tells me it’s. The gearing this truck could probably use a slightly smaller pinion gear. You could probably go down a couple teeth and end up getting cooler temps for your motor, but otherwise i mean the electronics were great, no complaints there.
The servo i mean it’s, an rtr servo. It seemed to turn fairly well tires, held up well they’re softer than i thought they’d be. They got a decent amount of traction. They do balloon quite a bit. I personally don’t mind that, but i know some people don’t really care for tires that balloon. The suspension. Definitely felt soft like as you’re driving and you know, jumping the truck bottoms out quite a bit even to the point where you’re just driving on flat ground and if you’re going fast enough and slamming the brakes hard enough. The front skid plate actually touches the ground. You can definitely add some more preload, maybe slightly thicker shock oil or stiffer springs. I think all around suspension was a little soft for what you’re gon na be doing with this truck. Wie gesagt, ich habe, i broke the shock rod end and i broke the rear kind of wheelie bar wing brace mount thing, but that was a really hard hit. I honestly don’t blame. It looks like everything else is still straight and fully functional. You know the chassis straight. The skid plates did their job very well, es gibt, very few, scratches on a chassis throughout the time that i ran it. I also noticed that the body clip tethers are a little soft and a little long. They could be shortened up a little bit just to avoid getting caught. I had one of mine break after, like the first or second run, and i ended up replacing it with an arma one, and you also have to keep an eye on the wheel nuts.
I had a couple of them come loose. One was to the point where the tire actually fell off. I had to hunt down the wheel, not i also had the front pillow balls pop out a couple times. I think one side popped out once and the other side popped out twice one hit. I totally understand well, actually a couple of the hits i understand. Einer von ihnen, Obwohl, was just a flat landing on all four tires. I thought that was pretty random to have it pop out now it’s the right front. I walked up to the truck thinking that it was the shock. Rod end that popped out, but surprisingly, that held in because i was not expecting it to so. I thought that was kind of weird and looking at other people’s experiences truck might have an issue with the pillow balls popping out every so often so i definitely didn’t want to have to deal with driving the truck. Knowing that, if i broke something you know it could be months before it’s back up and running, i was very pleased with it. It honestly just came down to the part support and if it was a crawler i would be a little bit more lenient, but i mean this thing’s a stunt truck so you’re going to be doing flips and tricks with that, Natürlich, maybe i’m missing something when It comes to part support, i don’t know i could be wrong, but everything in this video was based on my personal experience with the truck.
I guess my advice to you is just to consider part support if you are looking to purchase a team karate vehicle, so dass das, my review of the 2021 team, karate jambo. I hope you guys found it informative, feel free to share it with your friends and i’ll.
