This is part two of putting a felony kind of revamping it just a little bit and uh. So i got the body on it at the moment i did put the spoiler on and that’s the first time. I’Ve ever had a spoiler on it, so i don’t know if i’ll keep it on there or not, and just uh that back piece that i painted. That seemed to turn out pretty good, looks pretty good green kind of matches the car some so taking the body off. I did do a little work, just kind of in between some of the slower work. I did kind of get everything all put back together. Uh. Nothing really nothing really uh too spectacular, um i did get the servo mounted it’s all in there um all the scorched drive shafts are all in there pps mount so it’s it’s. Quiero decir que es, really looking good um. We got the 34 tooth there and we are using partial uh pieces to the uh. The original battery boxes uh mainly i’m, going to put the dual lock down on the on the chassis down there and then also i’ll have a velcro strap around it. Así que de esa manera, i’ll have both of them and so now we’re pretty much at the point where um we need to uh. We need to unbox this baby, so what we’re going to do is i’m going to unbox it. I have the castle link already hooked up.
I got the laptop sitting right here and basically, where i’m going gon na mount, it is right there and basically the same thing with dual lock: i’m gon na hold it down with that and so pretty much let’s uh i’m gon na move the car out of The way i’ll get the laptop set up so that way, you can see exactly what it says on screen. Bien, i’m um. Realmente, you know what i’ll just unbox it right now, so we can see what’s exactly inside of it, and then i can move you over to the uh we’ll move over to the laptop and hook it all up. We’Ll see what that new uh update or whatever it is the new download for it, and there is a new castle link uh download, also that you can update your castle link. I did notice that the other day so all right opening this one up opening this one up, we got uh, we got some motor. You got some wires in your and your bullets and there she is this bad boy. So when you got your uh, you got your quick start guide. It comes with your comes with your stickers. Comes with your uh, your castle link adapter for a free one or you can get the card for 10 Dólares, and this is your your quick start guide. así que, no and that’s your little plug for your uh for your sensor, wire in case you’re, not going to use it that way it keeps the dirt and stuff out of it.
So here it is. I can tell the tops already different that that’s a different fan cover than the original one, that the very first xlx2 i had. I can tell it’s different all right, we’ll just come out the bottom here. I guess okay, así que estoy, just looking at the number on it. Real quick and those are the numbers, if you guys ever wondered these – are the ones that you look at, that it actually begins with a c i don’t know, if you guys can see that it’s supposed to start with a c. You can just see barely part of it and then it goes two. Eight zero, Cero. Six. Those are the numbers that you look at if you’re trying to figure out if you’re uh, if you’re uh on that recall list and there it is too, si, if you still have your boxes, that number matches that same one that’s right there. So those are the numbers that you look at on castle to see if, if you uh, if you have a, if your esc is one of the problem, ones or whatever just read the advisory, just read the advisory and do whatever castle says that’s the way they’re Gon na warranty it so okay, so like i said, i think that that fan shroud is different from the original xlx2, the one they’re, my original one anyways it’s different fan shroud on it. I can tell that already everything else looks pretty much the same.
These wires are so long on these things and if you cut them, you know as castle, you know say i only want. I only want to use that much of it and i put – and i put those connectors right there is this castle warranty that i wonder. I always wondered that because you know where you got to tuck away all this wire it’s, not like the little receiver boxes, are that big, chicos bien. So what we’re gon na do now? We’Re gon na we’re gon na mount this right in here, and so what that does that gives us room for our battery and then we’ll have the dual lock down there and then we’ll have a velcro strap and i did cut the uh. I did cut the power wires down quite a bit just because they were they were pretty long and i don’t don’t need all that. So that way it keeps them keeps them nice and short, keeps it nice and nice and clean um also on the motor wires. I did have to solder on um the 8mm eight millimeter bullets plus i did uh on the 1717. It only comes with um 10 gauge wire on it, and so i took the wire off and i put the put a 8 gauge wire on that comes with the comes with the motor so and i did just a little bit of work there so i’m, going To leave these long for now, even though i want to cut them like some up in here, but i probably will cut them eventually, because only so much is going to fit inside this box and for the moment i might just zip, tie them up here and Just put some some of it down in the box and then some of it just zip tied up here but uh right now, Estoy, just gon na cut some uh dual lock and then um and then stick it on the uh.
Stick it on the chassis there, and so what i’m looking at doing and i’m just going to make put two rows of it on one row there scoot over another row there so pretty simple, no big, Nada, big there and i’m just going to stick it right On there and i’m going to put a couple rows in there, so i’m gon na go ahead and do that real, quick and then i’ll show you the batteries that i’m gon na be using in it all right, we’re back guys and uh well we’re. I kind of jumped ahead. Um it’s been just kind of one of them days where i i get working on something and then i get interrupted. And then i it’s just been hard to video everything. So i kind of just uh, basically just got everything mounted so that xlx2 is sitting on sitting on the dual lock and, como se puede ver, i’ve just put the switch just put some double face: tape, some foam tape, some 3m uh just mounted it right to The side and then also i’m using the sensor wire. So basically i did the same thing. I just used some foam tape so that way it kind of keeps it up and out of the way, and then i just ran that sensor wire just right down and along inside there and then right behind the motor right back there. And then then i got the servo all mounted or i don’t have the horn on yet because i haven’t powered it up yet, but then uh then i just put heat shrink over the whole thing, just to kind of make it all one color under here and Then got it ran out of the box.
Put some heat shrink all over the uh castle wires and got it all right into the box, and these are the qs8s. Just like castle says um and then also the batteries also have all the qs8s already all on them, and then those are those are held, oh see how tough them are to get out and that’s just with one strip. So i just put the other strip down on the bottom. So if you use two strips that’s, Real, strong and i’m, just using one strip because i’m i’m gon na wrap them with velcro, also just because it’s uh um i’ve seen videos where people are just using just that and they go flying out and and bolt using. Both is real simple, so so these are the batteries i’m using some cnhls uh 6200 mah 100c, and then they are 200 burst. So they are pretty good batteries. Um they’re, not the most powerful batteries in in the world, but you don’t necessarily need the most powerful battery in the world or the biggest um. Because i got these, i got these z batteries and they say they’re, Nueve, thousands and they say they’re quite a bit. Bigger battery, they are quite a bit heavier too so and that that makes a difference when you’re trying to go fast. So we’re going to start with these batteries – and i also have these are going to be only for speed running for when i’m running my vehicles, because i did buy uh, i did buy two more of them because i’m going to need them for the corvette uh.
The c8 build the felony c8 build the uh dual motor, so i need four of them, so i basically just figured it’s gon na be a brand new car. I knew i was gon na be revamping this one eventually, so i just bought four new ones and uh speaking of that c8 uh felony build something just come in the mail today too, which is something i’ll be unboxing here pretty soon and which will also get Me started on that c8 build to uh. Finally get it finished up, so i think i have all the parts for it now so it’ll be complete, we’ll be able to put it right together and it’ll be done, and it is getting warm here too. So so we’ll be able to uh, get them out and get them running so anyways guys. I got the uh. I do have a receiver in there, um es, the dumbo. You can see all them wires are tucked all inside there. It’S uh it’s kind of a mess in there with uh them long castle wires. I didn’t i didn’t cut any of them. I probably will eventually but um so what i’m i’m just going to use this remote here so i’m going to put you in the stand and like i say i have, i haven’t put any power to it. I figured if this xlx2 is going to burn out my might as well get some video of it and uh.
Bien, i guess i don’t know that’d be about it. I guess that’ll be the best thing that can happen, because i will be pretty darn mad. Muy bien, let me get you in the stand and then we’ll get this baby uh some juice to it. Bien, Chicos, i turn to turn the car around, así que puedo. I can kind of see the lights on that having it the other way. I couldn’t see so and also putting power up to this thing for xlx2 i did, i did bring over the old fire extinguisher. I did bring it over a little closer. Just we shouldn’t have any problems, but you never know so all right powered on i have this is not bound or anything. I don’t think so. I that’s why i wanted to make sure and that’s what, if it isn’t, then i got ta get to this side. So that’s another reason i turned it around so all right! Bien, i guess here we go let’s plug in some power cross, our fingers, one thing about keeping these wires short. It sometimes makes it a pain to uh get all this stuff together again. Okay cross, our fingers here, let’s go five, Seis, Siete, Ocho! Bien, we do have uh, we got steering. We got no throttle, though we got green blink and light, so i might have to bind this up and i did not. I haven’t set any throttle or anything on that.
Yet so let me uh there we go okay, so all you do on this dumbo. Is you just press in the side you just hold it in until it starts blinking with the controller already on, so what you do with the dumbo? You have to have it off, you pull it back, you pull the steering backwards and you pull the throttle backwards. Turn it on let go hit. The third channel see it starts blinking, so you go full throttle. Let it relax reverse. Let it relax turn forward. Let it relax turn backward. Let it relax hit the third channel button. Okay turn everything off again: Bien, guys now to set the uh esc. So you got the throttle or the uh controller on uh full throttle. You turn it on green red. You go to reverse, yellow you! Let go red rock okay! Oh i guess i forgot. I pulled out that uh pulled out that motor. I forgot there’s a pinion on there all right, so we do have uh. We do have motor so let’s see. What way does this thing have to turn? Okay looks like i have uh. Lo tengo. I had the motor turning the wrong direction. I believe okay, so i’ll have to i’ll, have to get back in there and to hook it up to the computer again and then i’ll have to reverse that uh rotation for that motor. So not that big a deal but that’s uh, just something i got to do real, quick or do before i take out so we’re.
Getting there guys, i think that’s pretty much about uh about what uh all i’m gon na do um. I can go ahead and button. I can. I can button that up. They can all be closed up now. Um, i probably will turn the gyro on for now um i can always. I can turn it off with my remote that’s, the uh that’s, the adjustment right there that’s it that these dumbos are kind of nice, these six channels, they’re nice, only about 40 Dólares, or so they get. You know long distance. They go three four five hundred meters. I think the six channel ones do so so all right guys well uh, i’m gon na put the body back on it and we’ll take a look at it. I’Ll put everything back together and uh get the steering all hooked up so now that that’s uh. Now that i put some power to it and that’s centered now i can kind of get that off. Get that all looking good. So all right we’ll be back in a second okay, Chicos, here’s what we ended up with. I think it all turned out pretty good. I still got a little work here and there to do, but for the most part, it’s uh it’s pretty much done um. I think it turned out pretty good. Um chassis looks nice. Velocidad, control i’ve been wanting an xlx2 in my felony for quite a long time. So now i got one um: the good old 1717 all polished up nice scorched axles, just other polished, aluminum parts, Uh, say all the little pieces in there.
The pillow balls are all they’re all polished in there too. So it’s all looking pretty good. Eso creo. Next video you’ll see this is uh we’ll be outside. I will take it outside here pretty soon, as long as the roads stay decent uh. The uh snow is all melting around here right now, so the roads are kind of wet in spots and stuff like that. So it’ll be a little tough getting out there, but i’ll try and get out and at least do something try to get a little bit of you know just to make sure that the car is running right and everything so so other videos we got coming up Too is uh. Bien, i got the uh c8 felony um i’m, just gon na jump right on that and uh we’re, just gon na keep right on speed car videos for a while, because i got a lot of stuff to do to get ready if it’s gon na turn a Little bit of warm out i’d like to get outside and at least do a little bit of something. So all right guys thanks for watching, i hope you enjoyed the build hope you enjoyed the couple. Videos um hit that notification box you’re going to want to see these uh these cars out running.
