The throwback i haven’t been in the rc hobby that long so it’s really not throwback. For me, before a lot of people, they say this. This platform is eight to ten years old, but i like them um. I have the trophy truckee uh, the trophy truckee flux. I have two trophy trophy flux and i also want the 2021 uh hpi savage flux. Xl, i think that’ll be one of my next rigs that i grab, but i do want to get. I do like these hpi’s i like how they run they they handle awesome. So they are great um cars to add to your collection. But we talked about this. One today this is the 1a scale, brushless buggy baby, the trophy flux, buggy let’s, get it. This thing is equipped with a 4s esc. I believe it’s 120 amps. I want to say – and it has a 1965 kv motor, which i will be running on 4s. Some people say the motor is strong enough to run 6s, but me personally, i’m, just going to run a 4s on this car. I like the way my other ones handle on four is i just i know i’m gon na have to gear it up, but let’s get into it. Man with no further ado. Y’All know how i feel who cares about a box baby let’s, get it baby. Let’S get it first up, you have a sticker sheet. I guess this is the sticker sheet that they use, because you see the old spots uh where the stickers were, but you have a couple of extra stickers.
If you want to use them me personally, i won’t be using them, but sticker sheet, always pretty cool to have uh. Next up, you have your books with an antenna. Tube uh books manual seems pretty thick it’s, some kind of cold kit card. Some kind of code i’m have to look up there’s, something for the uh joined of my the my hpi for free. So this has something to do with hp. I will be looking this up and figuring this out. It’S always awesome to have apps that you can just go to on your phone and figure out what you want to figure out so that’s, always a good tool to have all right. Next up the wing doesn’t come on the truck, it comes in the bag, i guess that’s for shipping purposes and you have a nice bag of goodies uh. These look like preload clips. As you know, these shots are um. They did. They. Don’T have they’re not threaded shocks, but it has the preload clips. Uh. You have a few more servo horns in there. It looks like the body cover the two body cover things to protect the body when you put the clip through, so i definitely will be using those, and they also give you so i need that they give you a wheel wrench, which these are always awesome. You never have too many of these because you can just put them all over the place in your car and all your bags.
So anytime, you have a problem, you know with loose wheel nuts. You always can just have one of those on standby and you don’t mind losing it, because you have so many of them all right. They give you the four batteries for the remote that’s awesome and a few more things uh. I can’t really tell this. Is these look like some hinge pin holders a couple of shims that’s, pretty cool to get all that in a kit that’s, supposedly this old, all right, here’s, the radio here’s the radio right here? This is really old school. When you can say you say wow but uh, i have two uh futaba receivers on the way, so i will be doing a test run with this, but after the test run, you will no longer see this remote uh, but it’s a pretty good, remote, i’ve driven Them before has foam on the wheel, has all your trims and your dual rates and all that good stuff on it uh, i believe, it’s a three channel, i think it’s a three channel but yeah there. It is hbr remote they’re, not that bad, pretty good range on them too, as well, but this is the main event. This is what we all came to see today. This thing is a beauty just like his his his big brother, the truckee, his big sus, her big sister. This thing is a beauty and they wrap it up. Good, they make sure in transit.
Nothing bad will happen, so let’s hold tight i’m gon na get this wing on right. Quick uh get my my body clip um protectors in here my uh, my body protector, pin things in here and then we’re gon na come back to it and revisit everything all righty. Ladies and gentlemen, we are back, got the wing mount on. It was a little tough, really yeah, but uh. We got it on there, man uh good to go. This thing is a beautiful. This is a beautiful rig uh. It really is it’s kind of feel like. It may be my heaviest buggy that i actually own, because this thing feels super heavy but um. I noticed this hp. All the hpi’s run good um. I have the uh, like i said the trophy triggy plugs. I actually have two of them and they both run excellent. So i know this is going to be an excellent running rig. I may have to stiffen the shocks up, maybe change the shock oil put a few of the preloads in there because it’s just it drops down, and it does not want to come back up and i do like for mine to re to rebound. You know a nice bit at least about halfway and it’s, not rebounded. Halfway at all, i like to afford to go up to at least about right there, but uh we’ll take care of that i’ll put the shot capsule, i mean the uh, the spacers in there.
First see if that helps me out and then, if that don’t then i’ll just change the shock oils, but that’s small things to a giant but let’s get under this hood, but it’s beauty let’s get under the hood of this beauty there. It is. I love the orange anodized um aluminum in there. That is really good, really nice to look at um. I will be changing this to a 19. I mean to a 22 opinion because that’s what i have with my other ones and they run they’re they’re they’re fast, like success cars when you put that uh when you put that um that 22 pinion in there. So that is your 120 amp esc that those uh it comes with two dings plugs. It could have just came with one uh, because i will be cutting these and just making one plug because i’ll just be running this car on one battery, not two one. Four x pack, so there it is that’s the 1965 kv. I think, it’s a 1965 kv motor it’s, my first time ever having a 1965 kv motor. So but there she goes i’m loving the wheels i’m loving the pin designs on the wheels they feel right in the middle they’re, not too too soft and they’re, not too too hard, so uh. I think i think this this. This would be a right out of the box. All i have to do is change my my um receiver and the pinion gear, and this thing will be ready for the neighborhood races in no time it’ll be ready to go i’m gon na.
Do the first test run in my backyard, though i’m not gon na. Take it to the neighborhood races for the very first run, so i’m gon na run. It see how it does on this opinion if, if it can hold up on this pin – and i feel like the speed – is enough – it’s adequate enough to run in the neighborhood races. I won’t change that gear uh. I would. I would not never be running this car on a real track. Uh i have. I have cars to run on a real track. This would just be more of a neighborhood racist, contender um, so i don’t really have to worry about. You know too much too much doing too many mods to it, but i am going to change that opinion. If, if it’s not fast enough – and you know i’m going to run a um, i probably run up through top of it in this one uh. I have two futaba receivers on the way: i’ll probably run a futaba in this one but um there. She goes i’m very excited about getting this one out. I can’t wait till i’m able to uh. I am able to get it out and uh take it for a quick spin in the backyard uh. I won’t be jumping d. This crazy either um. You know what i’m saying you know i just feel like you know. I have rigs that i can send. So i i won’t be sending these.
This is going to be just more of my my daily drivers. Man, i just go out, have a good time with driving around to stop the handling and all that good stuff. But y’all just hear my batteries went off that’s for the neighborhood races tomorrow hold tight. Let me see the stop it’s top, so there we go. We can keep video rolling, but there it is. You got another look at it from the top that black red and white looks great on there. Just look at this side. Flip it up. Let you see it and i love hpi wheels. They do great designs on their wheels. I like how the hpi wheels look. Uh on the truckee i like them, and on this buggy and that monster truck i don’t quite like those. I know, i’m gon na be changing those to some success backflips, but i like them on the buggy and the tricky. Those are nice looking wheels, it’s that black, like a black chrome, almost so nice, nice, nice, nice, all right. That is my quick unboxing of the trophy, the trophy buggy flux, hpi, trophy buggy flux. I appreciate y’all sticking around watching the video don’t forget to like comment.
