So today’s video, as you seen, is uh me bashing, the armor outcast 8s um. This is before i’ve taken it out. Ελπίζω, if i’ve done, the video correctly you’ve just seen a clip of me running and bashing the truck um, what i’m gon na do now is uh play the rest of the footage of me bashing this and then i’ll, come back to the workshop and we’ll see How it got on its strengths, its weaknesses and hopefully give you guys some useful information here. Φεύγουμε: Μουσική, Μουσική, Μουσική, Μουσική, Μουσική, Μουσική, Μουσική, so Music, Μουσική, Μουσική, all right and guys. So here we are back after the bash. Now um overall, i got ta say significantly impressed um performance wise. This thing is like an x max is, after you spend about five or six hundred dollars on it. Um. It really is uh significantly better than what the xbox is out of the box. The x maxx will still do certain things that this won’t do, in my opinion, but i’m gon na give it more time and and see okay, so i gave it only one set of batteries, but i gave it a fairly good thrashing um as you’ll see from The uh, the video right so quickly, then first couple of things uh. One two impact points here on the body ignore the hole in the front that was me um driving into a tree um. These are gon na need a dressing because after one run i mean i did flip this thing and i was hard on it, Αλλά, όπως μπορείτε να δείτε, that’s impacting the body quite significantly and that’s coming off these parts here, so i’m gon na put some uh Sticky back foam on there and some shoe goo and stuff on the actual body to prevent that getting any worse uh.
As far as the bat’s concerned, Αυτό είναι, fine and the rest of the body um held out really well so it’s. Just that one tiny place there to be honest, and if it didn’t happen, it ripped a hole in the body. So you know not complaining about that whatsoever. Um the rest of it yeah this this thing got got given a fair uh, a fair thrashing, uh really really impressed. The only thing i’m gon na say is. I need to up the pinion on it very slightly um i haven’t even looked at what it’s got it in comparison to the additional one. What we got in there uh, Πιστεύω, oh you’re, not going to see it on camera it’s a 19 for the looks of it. If that is a 19 i’m going to go to a 20 or a 21, no more than that at all um. You know just it it. It just needs a little bit more for correction in the air um other than that, Σαν να είναι., stable, really, really stable, Um, throw it around really really nicely now negative points. Uh, the stock radio gear mine was faulty from day one didn’t work. I’Ve had to put this on my obsima radio to get it up and running um now, yeah i’ve been sorted out. Customer service, wise, superb replacement straight in the post um. Ωστόσο, you know if you were buying this and you had nothing else. You wouldn’t have been able to use it, which is poor um, so the quality control’s gone there.
Temperature, wise, i mean i was running in about one or two degrees today, so you know it’s pretty cold anyway. Um, obviously you’ve got a big fan in heatsink on the motor, but nothing went over temp. The speed control seems a little bit sluggish. In response i mean it is a stock system um, you know so, but perhaps that’s something i can look at in the settings. This cat pack, in my opinion, uh doesn’t, seem to be doing much um to smooth it out. I might take that out um and then see how it compares. So i can give you guys a good review and then put a big one in and see how that compares. Um she’s a bit wet still at the minute she’s going to get hit with my compressor gt85 and then probably put it on the white side of the bed to dry off. But overall guys, if you’re thinking about getting one, then yeah do it. Um really really impressed really really impressed just looking there’s no breakages um, i did give it. I think i gave it yeah. I crashed it a few times um, αλλά ναι. I gave it a good bit of stick. Um good grip. The ground i was running on was was really really boggy. We’Ve had like a month’s worth of rain here over the weekend, so yeah right guys overall thumbs up um radio gear thumbs down bad uh, run time, not great.
I didn’t actually time it. I was having too much fun. Um run time, didn’t seem great and, despite being on wet slippery ground, i could just about get a wheelie out of it. But again, i think once i chop that um pinion up put a couple of extra teeth: um that’ll greatly improve, but on the hull. But this thing put a massive smile on my face and the people that were watching seemed seem quite happy as well. Right guys. Take it easy, happy, bashing and hopefully i’ll see you shortly for another good.
