Pa, today, in front of me, i have the zd racing rocket s16 porsche uh. This is a touring car from zd racing it’s a 116 Skala, and this one was kindly sent to me by makefire now last year i reviewed this same car, but i reviewed the brushed version. This orange one uh late last year, i’ll put a link to that video at the top right hand corner of the screen, and this is a really awesome. Little car guys to uh run not only on tarmac, but you could actually do a bit of drifting with it as well. So that was the brushed version last year, and this one that i got sent today is the blue one. You can get it in red as well, but this is a brushless version, so i’m pretty excited to see and compare uh how both these models, guys i’ve got everything out of the box and, like last time, with the orange brushed model of the s16 rocket. The actual car does come without the decals fitted, so you can customize it yourself guys. You don’t have to put all the stickers on that are showed on the box. Um, you can just yeah put your own on there. So that’s a that’s, a nice touch. All you have to do is take the uh clear, coating off the protective coating off all right. Tako, first off i will look at that car in a sec. First off we get the b3 charger that’s a nice little imax charger here, okay it’s inside here, and we get the well.
They sent me a international plug here, which is uh european, but it’s a nice little balance. Charger you’ve got your cord inside there, okay to plug into the wall. If you don’t have a hobby grade charger, these ones do do the job, they do balance out the cells, and you can use these for not only 2s batteries but 3s batteries. As you can see there, alright guys, so that is the b6 uh or b3 sorry charger that comes with it to get you going, because this is a rtr kit. We have a fairly simple controller, but these controllers work really well guys. We have the steering, trim here and speed switch, so you can adjust the speed all the way up or slow it down. Ok, there’s the steering trim put that in the middle there with the arrow just like that and uh nice little plastic wheel. This does not have the uh sponge or foam on it, but it is a nice wheel and your fully proportional uh throttle as well. There is an auxiliary button here, but that does not work for this particular model. Uh, maybe some other models that they have. We also only need two double a batteries for this one, but uh yeah, very nice, little controller, very responsive, so it does the job rather well. Ok, now in this plastic bag, bundled with the instructions, we have the decal sheet here. Ok, so you’ve got a few spare ones here.
Okay and, like i said before, you don’t have to use them all. You can just customize the car yourself and put as many as you want all right, so there’s, a full decal sheet here, is a just like, like a quick start guide, showing you the pictures where to put the decals on the car, okay and just a checklist There there’s nothing on the back of that. We’Ve got two rather long. Uh cable ties here or zip ties whatever you like to call them and uh some 3m sticky pads there uh. I guess if the the um esc, Znaš, comes loose with uh grit and sand. Sometimes they come loose, they don’t stick anymore, so you got a couple more uh. This comes with the same user manual as you can see there’s a different model on the front. The d16 uh touring car there, but basically uh this is an older model, but basically these uh new 911 porsches are pretty much the same platform as the older one. So you know it’s got everything you need to know very good booklet, this one. It goes through. Everything guys, Ok, so you’ve got exploded. Diagrams. Look very nice diagrams throughout towards the back. You’Ve got all your just exploded diagrams for the differentials. Gearbox everything guys everything. So if you have to uh, do some repairs. This is a really good comprehensive user menu. I really like zd racing for making very good user manuals on these rcs that they sell there’s a huge exploded, diagram of every single part and part number, and then the last few pages it’s got the replacement parts guide with all the part numbers, so very good User manual, indeed, do not lose this one.
Just in case you have to buy parts, you can just uh, you know just look them up on the internet via the uh code. So anyway, guys here it is here. This is the s16 rocket. The brushless version looks like it’s got slightly different wheels than the uh brushed one slightly different spoke design. Ok, Tako, kao što možete vidjeti, it’s plain i really like this blue color. I like it as much as the orange one. They also make this in like a burgundy or wine sort of red color, which looks really nice as well. So anyway, guys i did go through the this car before, like i said when i got the brush version, so i’ll just quickly go through this one, Dečki. Ok, Tako, kao što možete vidjeti, we’ve got led lights. I have to unplug it there. This is exactly the same. We have the led strips they’re, multi, colored strips they look, really cool, so you’ve got all different colors there, all right nice like sand, Ljuska, which i just showed you now the difference between this one and the brush version. Obviously this has got a brushless motor and this motor is a 24 35 sized uh can and it’s a 3 300 kv. So yeah i’m really looking forward to see how this one performs uh against the brushed version that i got now. We’Ve got a little bar metal pinion, i think yeah, the spurs seems like it might be: nylon still hard nylon, but uh yeah.
The esc on this one is a 2n1 esc, it’s rated for 35 amps, okay or 30 amps. Sorry, it does look like very similar to some 35 amps that i’ve have had on other rc’s, tako da da 30 amps um, not too sure if it could handle 3s it’s a possibility that it could. But you wouldn’t want to run it for a long period of time on a 3s that’s for sure, because it doesn’t have a fan. It’S got a heatsink, though okay we’ve got our on and off switch all cable tied here, nice and neat um three wire servo. Now this is a 2.2 kilogram survey, just like the brushed model. Ok, more than enough for a little car like this nice uh front, foam bumper here, Ok, rather long, um (1998, uh towers here for the um for the body clips. Ok, you can see we’ve got some uh little retainer clips here to where the body will sit on top of it, rather than washes all right. It has friction shocks all around guys, so they’re, not oil, filled they’re, just plastic with a spring okay and uh. This is full drive, so you got uh, opens open center, diffs front and rear very nice, uh metal, second floor chassis, brace on this, and what i really like about these chassis on these these are cnc cut guys. So just like the uh, the other version that i um reviewed exactly the same chassis, a slightly different color, though i think this one it’s a very, Vrlo, very nice, even their 110 Skala, tc10.
The lamborghini has uh from zd racing, has a very similar design. Cnc, cart, Šasije, really, Lijepo. I really do like that on these uh cars, so uh let’s see what we get with the battery now this battery this one comes with the lipo, the uh brushed version that’s rather interesting. The brushed version came with a nickel metal hydride or nike had one of the two, and that was, Mislim, 1200 in capacity 1200 milliamp hour. So but the brushless version comes with this 1500 milliamp hour: 15c lipo, Ok, rather thin 2s, but uh yeah should get the job done. I believe these cars should do around the 30 odd kilometer mark, so i’ll definitely be testing that out guys all right um. You know in a little speed test there so i’ll test that out – and i might even make another video where i compare this brushless version to a uh to the brush version. We’Ll see how fast they both go. All right so uh all right, guys well i’m, going to put the decals on um charge the battery up and i’ll catch us out at the uh. Wherever i go, i probably might take this to the basketball court, or maybe just on a road somewhere and we’ll, see how it performs all right guys so i’ll catch you out there and we’ll see how it goes all right see you then okay, guys i’m down At the uh sports club, i’ve got the zd racing rocket.
This is their brushless one, so let’s take it for a spin battery’s, fully charged pretty quick servo on it. Just like the brushed model, so uh give it a go. It needs trimming up yep there. We go Applause so it’s pretty much like the brushed version. Very zippy and quick get some good drip fat from this one as well. Yeah awesome. This has a 2435 size. Motor very small 3300 kv a lot of fun, just like the other one whoa yeah a lot of fun. Just like the orange one that i’ve got the uh brushed version definitely seems like it’s got similar power to the brush model. This is a great surface for uh drifting that’s for sure this is this: has road tires guys not drift tyres? Let me just show you the compound on these tyres. Didn’T really show it in the unboxing, Ali, kao što možete vidjeti, they have got tread. They are nice and soft as well, but uh yeah perfect for this uh this um surface and you can probably see the underglow of those lights as well. They look really cool and zd racing you’re on a winner with this one as well guys sc, 16 rocket brushless model Applause, very quick, little car yeah. You can do some drifting Applause lots of power out of this little one guys so yeah you get this one at makerfire.com, go check it out. If you’re interested see all the reverse flight flick, turn Music there pretty awesome guys very quick.
Now i didn’t bring my gps with me today, ali uh. What i’ll do very soon stay tuned, i’ll, Uh, i’ll, put this against the dog just ran by there. Is there? Oh uh i’ll put this against the brushed one Applause, so yeah the guys. These are pretty affordable cars too they’re around 100, or maybe just over 100 price range and uh. I could see these going pretty good on a on a track as well indoor track or even an outdoor track. They’Ve got a lot of power and they’re just plain fun: let’s go and reverse again, see the reverse speed again it’s pretty much like the forward speed. Pretty quick do some donuts there you go now being four wheel drive to getting the full drive grip that’s. Why it’s so quick, especially on a surface like this? That is actually perfect for drifting see if i can hold a drift here on drift wheels these. This would be a lot better or easier to drift, but you can manage to do a bit of drifting with it all right doing donuts on its own, not even steering Applause, all right guys. Pa, i don’t want to bore you too much. I’Ll leave it there for now. I think it’s an awesome car just like i said the this uh brushless version is just equally as fun uh as the brushed model that i reviewed late last year and uh you’re. Definitely on a winner with this one guys a lot of fun, and you can pick this one up at make a fire so i’d like to thank them for sending it through so yeah guys.
If you do want to purchase one of these from makefy make sure you use my seven percent off link that way. You’Ll save a few more dollars off the actual website, price yeah, so um anyway, guys as you can see, it’s got the led lights under there. Great little car – and i really do like it so stay tuned later on i’m, going to put this against the orange one, the uh brushed model uh. I believe that one’s got a 380 brushed pretty high powered brushed motor. It actually looks like the same sort of power as this uh 24 35 3300 kv motor, so i’ll be looking forward to testing them both out head to head i’ll, put a gps unit on this one, and also the orange one and we’ll see how they go Head to head, alright guys so make sure you stay tuned for that one i’ll try to do that, one as soon as possible and if you’re new to the channel feel free to subscribe.
