I recorded this intro of this remo hobby ex3. Then i packed away the ex3 put it in the storage unit and then deleted the intro by mistake. So in my hands here should be remo hobby, ex3 uh, and in this video we take the skatepark on 3s and give it a bit of a durability test. Now i wasn’t the biggest fan of this when um, when i reviewed it. If you’ve not seen that review, video i’ll leave a link to at the end of this video, but i wasn’t massively impressed with the speed the actual look of it is quite short, it looks like it’s been squashed, and but it actually it’s not too bad, and As you’ll see on this video it’s, pretty durable as well anyway, there’s no point me just staring at you talking with nothing here so enjoy the video i’ll, see you next time after this video i’m just recording. This is currently what i’m recording. So you got this to come. This is probably going to be about a week away from when you see this, video i’ve got some massive um 15 000 milliamp hour batteries. To put in this thing now, zd racing told me to only use the 5 000 milliamp hour ones that they supply. So me, being me, i’ve taken that advice on board and completely ignored it and we’re sticking. Some 15 000 milliamp hour 100c live pose in gon na give that a run and there’s lots of stuff coming and some more tamiya anyways enough sneak peeks enjoy this video right.
I got a little bit of battery left 3s gens 8 in there skatepark durability test. For the remo hobby ex3 one temp scale, squashed short course truck come on Applause. Whoa that’s actually got a bit of pep wow Music. It only got. I was only getting 30 mile an hour on 3s seems to have oh no it’s, still not it’s. Still. I thought i’d woken up a bit more, but that’s got some power it’s very bouncy. The shocks are not uh, not tuned, although i did put some oil in them. It’S got good acceleration. Look at that and he’s a wheelie bar anyway. I wasn’t overly impressed with it for the money it’s a good truck, jeez um i’m, just not sure, if it’s worth over 200 that’s what it is at the time. The time of me testing is just over 200. I think the jlb cheater offers better value have got that on the way some of the parts on this are traxxas slash, so um parts availability. I know uh, you can use some slash parts it’s a bit weird camber on the front. Should we go for a big jump? Let’S go for a big jump: Applause, whoa jeez! There goes the spare world Music, yes, that’s, not going back on so durability, body’s, not that good it’s already got a few cracks in it. I tell you what, though it jumps Applause. There goes my battery lucky it’s a hard case using a uh jen’s ace, bastion series, 3s, 550 million power 50c hard case a bit big for the battery strap it fits in the tray.
Just the strap becomes a bit big on the 2s on the review. We’Ve got 20 mile an hour with a 3s 30 mile an hour. I tried to save that with my um, my foot, but it survived apart from the battery coming out, let’s uh calm it down a bit, let’s calm it down a bit. The problem with the bigger jumps it’s just it’s, not controllable enough to um, to try and keep it straight. It just goes all over the place. It’S not quite got enough wheel speed. As you can see there, it’s not got enough wheel, speed to correct it. Let’S see if it back flip, definitely not try again: Music, no it’s, not it’s, not going to backflip i’m going to get a bit of a good launch off this one though oh nailed, the front flip intentionally obviously went for a backflip. No, it wasn’t gon na. Do it tried to correct it perfect front flip, not so perfect, but it still survived wow that took a big hit once you get used to that throttle, you kind of can know what it can and can’t do. This thing is taking a bit of a beating a nice chassis brace on there, keeping it straight i’m impressed with the punch i’m, just not impressed with the top speed really. But i guess in this environment you don’t need that top speed, i’d say it’s past the durability test. Definitely so enough. Big landings to uh Music to test that out right, that’s, a win for durability on the rimo hobby, ex3 it’s fun, like i keep saying i’ve said a few times.
I just think for the money you could possibly get something else. The suspension or those soft has held up and that’s had some hard hits anyway. I’M gon na switch my camera over try and get some nice close shots. There’S a link to this in the description.
