Do i try to repurpose a lot of the stuff and uh? That being said, i had repurposed this truck. That was my son’s. He got it for christmas, probably i don’t know six or seven years ago and it’s a hobby king, uh, mini sct, trooper short course. Truck trooper and great truck brushless truck runs on lipo uh. The truck was awesome, but we started breaking things on it more often and then all of a sudden hobbyking does not carry the truck and the parts are very hard to come by even on ebay. So so you know i had some diff issues inside of this thing: uh finding diffs for it was pretty difficult. I used. I used them up the ones that i had and um just you know, scar on ebay. After a while gets, it starts to get tiring and stuff, so i figured i’d repurpose the stuff in the truck that’s usable this body, even though it is cracked um, i will be repurposing that, for a truck in the future, i’m sure i’ll have something that will Uh will fit the scale size still a good body um, so this is going to be repurposed and uh i’m, not really going to do much with these, except for keep the screws and a lot of the knots. Maybe a drive shaft. Maybe i don’t know not a lot. Um it’s got some chips and all that stuff on it, but i might keep some of that uh chassis, but most likely not uh.
As far as the motor goes. What came in that uh mini trooper truck was a hobby wing. Uh 4800 kv motor, and i was looking at my uh inventory. What i had was like what what could i put this little 4800 kv motor brushless, motor and esc? Could i put it in and also the receiver, which belongs to this tactic controller, which is an awesome controller and uh? I figured i’m gon na put it in the slowest vehicle that i have and we’ll see how it handles it. So i’ll be right back Music. I decided to do and a motor swap and an esc swap into this, because this right here i think i got like 14 to 15 miles an hour. You know it’s a fun little buggy uh it had a 380 motor in it and um. You know it was fun and stuff and it bounced around and – and it was all well and good but uh i figured this – is in need of some some performance, and so i figured that 4800 kv motor would fit just great in here, and it did so. That’S what i did, let me see if i can get the light on this thing, a little better there. It is the uh 4 800 kv motor in there with a heatsink. I think i’m going to have to get a fan for it, though, because it does have it does get hot. So i just got to be careful: uh there’s, the esc, right here it’s.
I believe this is a uh, 45 amp esc and so we’re gon na see how the enos goes. The desert journey, how it goes uh with this brushless system in it i did uh. I ran it today on this 1.8 milliamp hour 50c battery uh lipo battery, and that works really well. That came out of the store, the storm trooper, not the storm trooper, but the mini trooper, and i took some shocks that i had laying around from one of my old vendettas. Uh duratrax vendettas oil filled shocks, and so i put the shocks on here and let me tell you it changed this thing completely from how it used to run looking back in my old videos. If you get a chance, whether you’re, new or not, uh or you’ve, seen my videos before look up enors and uh i’d always make fun of the name and have a difficult time saying it. But i believe it is enos and not enosi, and this truck um it’s changed the performance check it out. You’Ll see the difference, but anyway, this is what i wanted to show you uh. Also, the shocks that came off from that mini trooper were oil filled shocks which i put in the g174. So this thing has all shocks now and you know now. I don’t feel too bad about that. Uh hobby king turnigy mini trooper, donating all of its internals to the greater good of other rc’s that need it so i’m, just gon na end.
The video right here and i’m gon na show you uh how this enos took the engine swap i took the motor swap the only thing i didn’t uh i had to um i i don’t have a plug for the lights um. I probably will have a light kit coming uh, so i can plug this in and the lights will be back, but for now i just wrapped up the wire and coiled it up and i can live without the lights, but it totally changed this beast. It’S. A really wheelie monster now also guys, if you have any time uh if you’re, watching uh youtube or if it’s a rainy day – and you happen to be on the on the tube and stuff uh there’s. A couple channels that i find really really uh. They’Re growing and uh this young guy uh has this channel it’s called mc and rc addiction. I think you guys should check it out. He’S got some really really cool uh stuff and projects that he’s doing uh the guy’s, a wicked good uh little drift driver and uh, but he has all kinds of different uh rc stuff, whether it could be builds or um uh. Very nice guy seems like he’s, a really nice guy and uh anyway. He’S got a really good channel. I think you should check it out also uh, some guys across the pond at pop along rc. These guys got a pretty good channel a pair of guys.
I think they seem like they know what they’re doing they look like they’ve been into rc’s for a while, and they really seem like they’re trying hard to grow the hobby and to get people interested. I just want to invite you to watch their channel pop along rc, very good, channel and uh. You know they. They have some really good ideas and stuff and if you’re into the quick, quick youtube uh, you know like quick, flexes and stuff like that. Uh this uh bikes, rc 46 he’s, always got some short uh. Ripping films and stuff he’s got some cool stuff, a lot of armor stuff, but he he does it all different different uh, uh, rc’s and, and things like that and he’s got some really cool short videos. So, if you’re into not watching long stuff, uh long kind of like my stuff kind of gets drawn out a little longer than it should check out uh bikes, rc 46 – i don’t think you’ll regret it all right guys enjoy the video bear in mind. I have not driven this yet so we’ll see how she does. It was really good Music get a top speed of 23.1 miles an hour that’s, pretty awesome uh. I think this originally with the original 380 size motor. I got. It was like 15 miles an hour, so this is definitely a performance gain there. You go, let’s drive it around a little bit more. Oh, we got wheelies.
