Today is not one of those days. We have an axial rift to unbox yeah. Sometimes i wonder where you come up with your interests. Sometimes i don’t know. If i come up with them, they come to me, Ωραία, Εντάξει, so the axial rift uh. This is pretty cool because it’s, one of the biggest axial vehicles out, probably the coolest, looking axial too debatable, but yeah as long as you get the orange it’s, pretty awesome. When i think of the rift i kind of think of my favorite old axial, which is right here, the yeti, the yeti was the original rock racer and then they had the yeti, xl and the mini yeti. I don’t think of those that’s. What i think of i mean i think, of a race not by looks but the fact that it’s, like a rock racer, this isn’t, necessarily a crawler. It is uh. I i think it’s going to be a little different than like. You know your average crawler, which is very cool and when you think of axial, you think of a nice slow scale or even competitive crawlers. So this is very exciting um. You know we, you can say we’re a little late to the game, but it’s really hard. When you have video rc planes, rc αυτοκίνητα, Φορτηγά, crawlers boats, we do it all and so it’s really hard to be on time with all of it. This is still very new and still very relevant.
I think i’m claiming this one. Oh man wow. It has been a while, since he claimed one very jealous it looks so good. It looks way better in person than i expected it to and yes it’s a tie cutter. It smells so good wow that new car smells someday. Youtube is going to offer. Ω, my gosh television. You see that those are like really long. The show it’s pretty impressive, Wow. Εντάξει, look at the flex, Χειροκροτήματα, all right, so abby and i haven’t spoiled the riff nope. You know i think we watched axial’s promo video. I saw when rc driver online had it and i was like i’m so jealous. I don’t need my no here. It is yeah that’s, a pretty good guy. Εσύ, εσύ, like rc driver, hey, stop over there and tell them. We said hi okay, so we have to uh one of these days. One of these days, oxy driver, will have a display set up so jealous of his workshop. We never will uh so for now. We’Ll use the box that looks good yeah. It does i. I love how oh my gosh, the the uh esc. Πραγματικά, i didn’t notice that, until when you saw it that’s when i saw it yeah that’s what my eye went to the dash – and i was like oh my gosh – that spectrum yeah, so the it’s pretty cool they. They mounted the esc up here in the cab. Uh really awesome it’s kind of hidden because you don’t really notice it at first glance, but then you realize wow.
That is right up there in between the drivers, πολύ δροσερό, so you got the steering. Servo is in the front. Ω, your battery’s kind of exposed too where’s the battery go oh it’s right there yeah, so you’ve got just minimalistic access here with two body clips on the hood and that’s, going to open up underneath where we can get to the battery, which now the motor is Right here i can barely see it in there and i know it’s a brushless motor, but i don’t have the size memorized what’s that say me: 2200 kv brushless motor, which is pretty impressive. You know we don’t see brushless motors and axials that often stock. So it’s really cool to see that um, i i’m really impressed with how long these metal links are too. So you guys can see you know. Axial vehicles sometimes come with plastic links, but these are metal and and they’re huge too. I mean this is a really cool vehicle it’s. So, like stretched out isn’t it i love it. Yeah i’m really excited because you have you have both wraiths and you have all the yetis. I have all the yetis. You do have all the yetis. You have all the yetis, i know i have all the eddies. This is mine called it now. This is probably the fewest amount of parts i’ve ever seen. Axial vehicles come with. This is weird, usually there’s, Όπως 20 000 parts, there’s just a couple things in here.
So that’s interesting, then this is it for your battery access. It is just the bare bones: hood that lifts up, and then there you go there’s your battery access uh. This is an ic5 connector, so it’s pretty big, which tells me that this ain’t no crawler. This is a rock racer. I’M excited it’s gon na be fun. Wow, it’s gon na be fun. Whoa, look at the steering, servo whoa there. You said it’s up front yeah. I love the hinge right there for the battery love. It’S wow. You guys you guys. This is better in person than in videos and pictures. It has a cool look at the brakes too. Like you know, it has that’s cool, really cool brakes on the inside disc brakes and then um. I did notice these. The diff covers were metal too. So they’ve got on the back and on the front what it’s, not just like plastic painted, it’s legit metal. This is like nothing i’ve ever seen before. This is just so cool. You see where the power button is. Oh that’s cool it’s, like buried back underneath the truck underneath the uh passenger. I love the layout of this yeah it’s, so different it’s, so different, so i’m holding the dx3 radio. It does have the telemetry with smart, good um. It has the throttle limit at 50. 75 Και 100. it’s a it’s, a really good radio. I like this radio, but this might be the first radio.
I use my transmitter this one. I haven’t used this yet and i’m super excited to learn about it and uh. You know it matches. I mean not: quite the oranges are a little bit different, but we did get a his and hers. You know all these ready to run vehicles come with it’s. So weird this is the dx5 dragon. Yeah it’s awesome we’ll link it down below too. So you can check it out but like in the airplane world, you’re pretty much trained to buy one ready to fly, maybe two and then, when you’re ready you go into bind and fly okay, which means you just buy the airplane, all the electronics inside. But you got to pick up your own universal transmitter in the airplane world. The truck world doesn’t really condition you to do that if you’re a racer or if you’re, really into it a lot of people do. But i would say most people probably don’t, get a universal ground vehicle transmitter until much later in the game than what they do. In the airplane world and it’s kind of interesting that abby and i even over eight years of doing this and literally hundreds of ground vehicles through our possession, have finally gotten a universal ground vehicle transmitter because it’s almost like you don’t, feel like there’s a need to Do that because the radios that they come with, like this they’re, really nice, really nice, you do not that’s she’s right.
She is right, she’s right, but it’s, crazy, that if airplanes came with such a nice radio, it might be like a whole different world. But this is what we both plan on doing with any of our cars or trucks or whatever that have spectrum in it. We’Re. Βασικά, gon na throw we label everything on the bottom. We basically are gon na throw them in a box and then just use these. If it has a spectrum receiver in it and it’s gon na declutter our place a lot, because you guys can see how many ground vehicles we have. I mean we have a lot it’s time to declutter and you can do that with a lot of the vehicles that we have like probably most of the vehicles we have, Θα έλεγα, have spectrum setups in them right. We came to favor and you get once you taste a good company and a good brand it’s hard to go back so abby and i i have some non spectrum stuff back here too it’s probably hard to see or non. You know off brand. We have your octane back there. I love the octane. You have a lot of the crawlers over here like our friends red cat crawlers. We have um a lot of the stuff right here. We need to redo ourselves, but a lot of the stuff right here behind me is not um. You know it’s off brand yeah and that’s fine.
We love our off brand stuff too, but we do tend to favor like the good stuff it’s worth it most of the time to save up and buy a major name brand thing, because you have part availability. You have uh product support. You know you can call customer support, which is really huge with horizon. I mean you can talk to someone on the phone. I’Ve talked to someone on the phone, sometimes, if they’re swamped you might have to like call them and set up a like. I do the chat online and they’re really good. They always usually know who i am, and that might make a difference. I don’t know but they’re always very nice to me and very they’re way more educated than i am most of the time. So it’s really refreshing to get someone on the phone axial tends to make stuff that i’m always happy with. I don’t think i’ve ever had an axial that i’ve gotten rid of right, no and that’s a big deal. I don’t know why people don’t get way more excited about axial stuff. I love axial because, like we’ve had bashers sorry army there’s like one that slipped through the cracks, it should have happened, but it did. I regret it. I know the raider, and so that makes me feel really good anytime. We get our hands on a new axial, because this they’re going to support this for a long time. That means we can run it hard for a really long time, learn what is strong and what is weak and like plan for that prepare for that.
Every time you drive it, and so this being a new different style of beast, you know axial stuff, you usually don’t break it, no matter what, unless you’re in a tough bind and you strip the gears out or something like that, because you’re just really pushing it Way harder than you should in a really tight spot, which is extremely rare, it’s not like when you go drive a basher and you snap arms all the time or the shock tower busts off. You know we might see something like that. It does. Excuse me we’ve broken a lot of brands, though not just traxxas yeah it’s still broken, i could say it’s in the video that’s right and so here here’s the rift guys it’s just going to be fun. I think i think where this is going to shine is just i mean it looks amazing because it’s so different, but also out there running it and we plan to do that very soon. On the channel i’m i’m excited – and you know we do these unboxings a lot of times, because it’s it’s dependent on weather, but when we get something that is just so awesome that deserves an unboxing. We like to take the time sit down on the couch, just kind of slow things down a little bit and take a nice close look at it, so we can appreciate it because when we go out and bash it, you know we’re not going to take that Close of a look and it’s going to get dirty fast, so we like to appreciate this vehicle and all of its glory in this unboxing and first impressions, video and i can’t believe it’s yours, because i really like this thing, a lot that is, that might be The tallest shock it reminds me of where is it? It does remind me of the wraith like the shocks and stuff.
I don’t know because you remember how, whatever that it was it like wasn’t, the camera x4 or something yes, Ναι, i don’t think so i think this is like way more aggressive, oh yeah. This is way better. It just reminds me a little bit of it. Δεν είναι αυτό που νομίζω., better, it looks better and everything about it’s, better i’m, really curious about this box back here i was wondering it says: axial fuel cell, i think it’s just decoration right. Όχι, i think you can there’s four screws and i’m pretty sure you can get in there and put uh something something in there it’s an actual little box. What is that? Well it’s, just for looks i’m pretty sure i mean what would you put in there? Candy beef, jerky, Ναι, you’re out running the trails get hungry. You don’t want a snack, get your candy out. Let me get my screwdriver real quick right. Yeah only take 20 Λεπτά, but it’s worth it. It’S good, candy, Αυτό είναι. What i’m putting back there? Ω, a piece of candy we’re stupid. We just have fun, you know what it’s so crazy. We just have fun in the hobby, and here we are eight years later, with like a quarter of a million subscribers, and for that we thank you as it turns out. There are people that, like to have fun with these toys and not everybody, wants to sit down and read an instruction manual together. We can do that who really likes to, and no one wants to do it together.
So thank you guys for that. We had this crazy idea to start a youtube channel where we said you know what we’re going to do this differently. It’S gon na be family friendly from day one we’ve made that decision. You know why. Why not be seems really stupid to not be sorry. Not sorry and and let’s just play with the things they’re toys after all, right right, you know everybody gets this the thing out and they say okay. Καλά, let me let me read the box for an hour to you and that’s going to be my video i’m. Not yeah, Όχι, we we like to have fun with them, so we just kind of do what we want. You know and uh here we are. Ευχαριστώ. Ευχαριστώ, it’s crazy. It really means a lot, and i hope that i hope that doesn’t come out the wrong way. Ξέρεις, i really am very grateful for our patrons everybody watching big guy, upstairs extremely awesome to have the support that we’ve had over these eight years and uh we’re. Very excited to always bring you guys the honest truth. You know we got that low c dragster over there. We just did a video on it and as perfect as it is, we still show the imperfections that it does have like where the tires rub. The inside of the body and a lot of people in the comments said: hey there’s, a simple solution: put a little tape on the inside of the body for that and uh problem solved and that’s.
Very true and we’ll talk about that in our follow up video. But you know there’s no need to like hide that that doesn’t make it a bad rc. It just lets. You guys know what to expect when you buy it now. Sometimes there are enough issues that make it a bad rc. Let me tell you that on our channel, you remember when we stopped doing drones for like a year, because so many companies were putting out bad drones, and here we are we’re, seeing some good drones on the market again yeah. So what are you going to do with this? Πρώτη, you want to do a speed test you’re going to bash it first you’re going to break it. Is this speed test worthy, i don’t know is it i mean it’s always fun to see how fast i actually can go so yeah. We do speed tests just for the fun of it and uh then we’ll. Take it out. I don’t know probably by a lake or something that would be fun, Αυτό είναι, just really cool. We got to find a knife, i just want to tear the ground up or something i just want to find some mud or something i don’t know. Those are big. Knobby tires, i mean that is really cool. They’Re massive they’re monster truck tires. My low see tires back here are like the same size. Όχι, they well it’s. Really close. You are really cool. It was this big, Ω, my gosh uh it’s time to go.
