Looking at my massive fg model, sport, lorry we’re, going to take it and do a speed run on 8s we’re going to do some drifting and i’m going to do. Some donuts right have a closer look at this now. If you don’t want a closer look at it, you can skip forward a bit to the action, but let’s get this down off of this pedestal onto the workbench and i’ll, give you a quick overview of what i’ve done to this truck. So this is an fg model: sport, euh .e uh, c'est, a one fifth scale chassis, but because it’s a lorry. I think i worked out more one seventh scale, but either way it’s awesome, nous allons, take the body off. We have a quick look underneath and then we’re gon na get straight in to the action, so this started life as a petrol or a gas, as some of you may call it i’ve taken all out. That is my ballast i’ve added we’ll talk about that. In a minute but i’ve removed, the engine it’s now got a 56 92 980 Kv, big old brushless motor. We have a hobby wing max 5 esc and in this video we’re running it on two 4s lipos. On the previous run, i had massive issues with traction. It was cold, it was wet, whereas on this video and as you’ll see by that tyre, we were able to get the rubber down. I’Ve switched to an 18 teeth.
Pinion. On the previous video, i had a 19 teeth, but the mesh was a bit tight because you can’t adjust or it’s not adjustable. So i’ve switched to an 18 t for mod 1.5 gears other than the brushless changes as i bought it, and it has got quite a few upgrades. It had discs all round. You can just about see the disc in there, but it’s got it had four discs. I’Ve taken the rear ones off i’m, just using the front ones there operated by this servo on channel three of my transmitter as you’ll see in the video i’m able to lock the front wheels like a line lock and spin up the rear, really cool feature. This has also got upgraded, alloy hubs and some upgraded stuff on the back as well, and i believe that diff death is worth quite a bit it’s adjustable i’ve got it set completely open, but you can lock it right up. Je crois, and overall this thing is absolutely mental loads of power of 8s as you’ll see and again referencing back to the last video, no traction. It was cold and wet no traction on the front or the rear, i’ve added a little 12 batterie volt. Just to add a bit of weight just there for ballast, rien d’autre, it just gives it a little bit more weight, it’s a couple of kilos. There probably i’ve, not weighed it, but that is it. That is my fg model.
Sport lorry guys now enjoy the video and this scene will definitely be out for some more fun at some point in the summer. Right then let’s get these ties warmed up first, so i’ve added some weight. It’S got a bit more grip but it’s, obviously warmer today, yeah we’re, still good we’re good. Aujourd’hui, i think as long as i’m, careful on the throttle, we should be all right and obviously we’ve got the break. Laying some rubber down let’s do some 11. Shall we Laughter Music, hahaha right, then let’s go for a run, should have some satellites there we go. How fast is this thing? I’Ve been looking forward to doing this for a long time? What do you reckon i mean i’ve not really got any idea. I want to say 45, 8s 18 tooth pinion let’s go whoa a sketchy sketchy. I need to use the brakes. I keep forgetting it’s got brakes much easier using that front brake. That is an awesome idea that was kind of flat i’d get a bit closer for you, mais je suis. A bit scared it’s, going to hit me and it’s a big old truck. Oh this thing’s, so funny so fast for a big thing. Bien, i’m glad we’ve got traction. I think we need to bring it in see how fast it is. I tell you what one more pass Music it just spins it spins them wheels. So easy watch, Musique, motor’s, nice and cold let’s have a look.
J'ai dit 45 Ne, i whoa 55 mile an hour Laughter. I reckon we have a little gear up to that 19 là-bas. It would have been maybe what 57 58 ou même 60.. That is fast right. So a couple more runs, then we have a bit of a play about with it do a few drifts and stuff. I think we got a bit of on board this time treat ya. I don’t know if the gps is working. The gopros have an issue at the moment. Gps is it’s a bit of a pain, but if i can show you it, i show you the gps speed as well for the gopro Applause uh. Oh so i thought that was something bang it’s, the um, the front grill, the bull bar Applause, Applaudissements, wow Applause. I just keep chuckling to myself. I can’t help it i’m, just stuck just doing a bit of a shorts video. Maintenant, if you’ve not seen, my shorts channel i’ll put a link to it in the description i put little sneak peeks on there make little videos every now and then of stuff. Comme ça, you know just the little snippets of what i’ve been doing before it actually goes on the main channel so definitely worth subscribing. If you haven’t yet think any faster than uh 55 let’s just go for a bit of fun. If you want to know what that is, watch Music, perfect circle, Applaudissements, wow Applause, wow it’s, not very easy to drift, but it’s good fun, Musique.
It actually handles quite well now the tyres, especially from ones, are up to temperature. It kind! Bien, i say it turns it doesn’t turn very well, but it’s better than it was Applause, Musique, Wow, Rire, Musique, Wow, Musique, god, Applaudissements, Musique, motor’s a bit warm now tires yeah they’re, good that’s it for this video guys cheers for watching. I will see you again with this next time.
