So, όπως μπορείτε να δείτε, the first thing you notice is the shock absorbers. They are oil filled. Now i got these off my 9125 truck zillihom truck and uh they’re much better than the uh friction ones that were in it that’s for sure it’s got pretty decent flex. Εντάξει, i’ll show you some photos that i took a couple of uh weeks ago when i finished this. Εντάξει, now um it’s fully proportional now guys. So i use the servo from the uh 9125 here just added an aftermarket, servo horn. You can see i’ve plugged it in and the actual 60 amp esc is in this box here, like where the original um receiver board was so it’s in this box. Εντάξει, so it’s uh gon na help, you know uh be waterproof that it’s encased in the uh box now for the lights, probably knows that i’ve taken the front uh light bar off. I am yet to mod that one, so i just left it off for now. Είμαι., going to put some led lights in that and hook it up to a switch, but that’ll be later on. Just wanted to get up and running guys um for the front lights for the moment anyway, i’m going to add them to a switch later on. But i’ve just got a one cell lipo in here just saying: i’ve added a little jst plug it’s, just a 1s lipo and just works off that for now so um yeah it’s all fully proportional guys now and it can accept 2s and 3s.
I did keep the mode as standard. I don’t see any real reason to uh change these motors out front and rear. Είναι 370 size. Motors, um and yeah i’ve got my lipos in here. You can fit a fairly decent lipo in there and it runs the dean’s plug off the 9125, so plenty of options for batteries now it does run a little bit quicker than the stock that’s. All down to the gearing i did come with a nickel metal hydride battery when it was stocked. When i reviewed it, you can check that review out. I’Ll leave it at the top right hand, corner of the screen and uh. Another thing i did too was i: when i had the actual truck apart, i uh took these tyres all off they’re, not foam, filled or anything being a toy grade, but i i soaked them in wd, 40 and they’ve made them a little bit softer. Εντάξει, the more i use this for crawling. If i decide to go out a few times with this uh the more times i use this, these should soften up a bit more okay, so i doused them in uh, Wd 40 put them in the sun. I actually gave them two coats uh once they dried and it seemed to. These are a little bit more harder when they were um stock standard out of the box. So that’s it guys um i’ll do one video a bit later on.
I might go down the pond or something and see how it goes might be able to, because it’s got such a high uh. Ξέρεις, high clearance on the ground um might be able to go through some shallow water with it as well. So i might test that out down at the pond all right. Καλά, what i’ll do i’ll just hook it up to the battery, and i i’ll show you the proportional, steering and throttle on this uh zillihong uh transmitter it’s also got the dual rates as well high and low speeds that all works. Πρόστιμο, εντάξει παιδιά. So i just want to show you the way i set it up. I’Ve just got the um dean’s plug there, the mail one sticking out into the battery bay and also the on and off switch just said now. I’Ll just be hooking up a lithium ion pack. It’S got about half charge now you’ve got heaps of room, as you can see all that room for uh, bigger, lipos, Εντάξει, so here we go as you can see, it’s fully proportional like that, and you can adjust the steering trim manually as well. Okay and we’ve got steering jewelry, so i can turn a bit sharper all right and it’s fully proportional now, so so you can crawl with it. It’S not just uh full on you know forward and back like it was as a toy grade and crawl really slow. Εντάξει παιδιά., so there you have it that’s, the um 609e crawler.
Όπως μπορείτε να δείτε, i just plugged in the lights as well. For now, i’ll do an uh light bar mod uh later on on it and finish that off properly i’ll have them on a separate switch. But so there you go guys that’s. Just a quick video of what i did to this 609 e uh, Φθηνές, cheap crawler from banggood and uh turned it into a fully proportional vehicle for crawling and off road uh work, so i mean it’s not fast, όπως μπορείτε να δείτε, it’s not meant to be Fast it’s all down to the gearing of those motors, but i can put a 3s in this if i wish to do so, because it’s got a 60 amp esc from the zilli home truck the 9125. So, if you’re interested in uh doing this yourself, maybe uh or purchasing one of these, these are do it cheap to start off with, i covered that in my review, video um. If you want to know how to do this, with the parts that i’ve used i’ll try to find some links to the zillihome parts, the servo and the and the esc, Uh, obviously uh you’re gon na need one of these controllers. If you have a zillihome truck already well, you can use it uh, i don’t know. If you can, you should be able to get these separate anyway. I’Ll put some links below and um. You can check them out yourself if you wish to so uh next time.
I take this out guys i’ll uh, take it down the pond or whatever and give it a bit of a test run but that’ll be in another video. So thanks very much for watching. If you like this video, give it a thumbs up. If you uh want to comment, please leave your comments down below any questions. I’Ll try to answer them regarding this quick little build here and um yeah, if you’re new to the channel by all means feel free to subscribe for more videos.
