This video is a quick review and then we’ll get out and give it a go for this it’s, the high boxing or the hbx destroyer. I want to give it its technical name, è. Le 16 uh give it its technical name it’s the 16 890. This one’s, an a which means it’s brushless, not brushed um i’ll, leave a link in the description down below to the affiliate link for where i got this. One from banggood that’ll have all the specifications on there. I’Ve got to be honest. I don’t know what the specifications are and there’s nothing in or on the box. That tells you what the specifications are. So all i can tell you is it’s brushless it’s, very similar to the ftx tracer very similar, as in i think, è, probably the same car. I think we can safely say that which you can buy from more modern model shops. The good thing with that is, it means that you can get all the bits and parts that you break or you need to replace you can get them all from your local hobby. Store shouldn’t, be a great deal of problem, so without further ado. Let’S get on to the car here it is it’s our little little destroyer. I think i’ll call it a destroyer. I can’t remember the model name: um it’s got some squidgy tires, it’s got what it has got is it’s got little clips on the body pins, which i like that’s, un buon, a good thing, um kind of like what the what the arm has got, and i Hate body clips at the best of time, so it’s a good idea to have them on there.
If you look at the back of it, i think the shocks are definitely not oil filled, but they uh could perhaps take oil. I don’t know perhaps we’ll have a look: uh plastic arms, we’ve got metal, drive shafts on the back. Only the shafts though, and then they go into little little pins on the back there on the front, we’ve got plastic, but they are let’s. Look like the cvas, um, c'è, no bearings or anything in it and that’s. It really it’s quite a cool little car 1 16scala th. As you can see from the bouncing there’s no oil in those shocks, they might take some while but we’ll see before we get into the car. What else do you get in the box where you get the transmitter? È, a very plasticky toy grady, no foam on there. It’S got quite a lot of trim, though we’ve got steering, Tagliare, steering direction speed, so you can wind back the dual rate: um reverse on both and then on and off other than that fairly standard. You get three cable tires and uh. What looks like a little binding lead. You get a spoiler and a screwdriver always good to get a little screwdriver. You get a charger, a usual usb charger. You get a wheelie bar and another screwdriver. So we’ve got two screwdrivers. You get a spare set of body clips with the little rubber bits on which is quite cool. You get a sticker sheet that you can obviously put on the car if you like that, and you get a instruction manual all in english, with all the parts and stuff in it.
Quite a good little hole there and you also get a battery but that’s on charge, it’s just a little little battery like that, so let’s get a look inside. I do like tape. I do like those clips. ok, so inside we’ve got a dean’s connector for our back for the battery connection. We’Ve got a tiny steering. Servo we’ve got a tiny, minuscoli, brushless motor the size of my finger and we’ve got a combined steering servo speed controller and i believe, Oh, oh è, three wire it’s a three wire uh speed controller. So you can take that out in theory and keep your little steering. Servo that’s, quite good. Four wheel drive no adjustment on this on the steering just plastic. There plastic there um that’s about it. Really not great! You have to sit about metal springs, metal adjusters. They are adjustable damn right, but plastic shock absorbers, leaving as much in there plastic on the bottom and that’s about it. Really so we’ll get battery charged, i’ll get the spoiler and the stickers and stuff on it and we’ll get it out, give it some speed, runs and then we’ll get a bit of a jump and see how it goes. I’Ve got a bit of charge in the battery. The power on and off. Button is on the side here. Quite a fast little steering, servo, really fully proportional and then we’ve got forwards. Backwards might need that wheelie bar i’ll give it a bit of a jump and see how it goes.
ok, i’ll see you in a minute hi guys back again, just a little side. Note hey. Io no, like sticking stickers on manufacturers, stick the stickers on for me. I don’t want to stick them on, especially when they’re tiny and all that so i’m not going to put those up. Secondly, they give you a spoiler. They give you give me a spoiler, but you don’t give me any screws to attach it with. I have to supply my own screws. You can probably find some screws, but if you’re buying a car you want to, you want to have the screws to attach your spoiler or you’re, not going to attach it so i’m. Not attaching that. Thirdly, the wheelie bar to replace to fit the wheelie bar you’ve got to actually take off the rear. Bumper put the new rear bumper on slide that on there and do that up on there, and that will give you your wheelie bar. But again we don’t give you any screws for the wheelie bar, so that’s not getting fitted either. ok, that’s it moaning over i’ll, see you in a minute. ok, guys here we are on thunder road. Let’S have a little bit of a speed test with the hbx we’ll see how fast it goes. We’Ve got the phone set up here. We’Ve got some satellites check, start let’s see what we can do well, that’s one plus, where it almost lost under the fence. lì. Oh, Mio Dio, flat out it’s only got a little motor, but you know it’s all right.
What did we get? Oh one kilometers an hour let’s just change that we like miles an Music hour 19. Where is it 19 miglia all'ora? It’S not too bad? Davvero. It’S only got a little motor Applause, so Applause hi guys if by some chance, you’ve just finished watching my trx video you’ll, see that i was in the woods doing a bit of crawling and i found these three little ramps now. The beauty of having one of these small 1 16 cars is, i just happen to have one in my bag, so i thought i’d. Just do a quick, video and we’ll see how it goes. So we’ve got the little 116 hpx and uh i’m going to see. If it’ll make it over, these jumps Applause. Sì, i hope i got that on camera, it’s a trigger, ah reverse jump, did it better jumping when i wasn’t looking all right so first impressions. I wasn’t too impressed with this car, but it is quite good fun. Oh, for a little bit of bashing you’re not going to be able to do anything to it. Bene, you probably could but it’s got to brush this motor it’s got a little battery. I think you’d struggle to get a bigger battery into it. I think you struggle to get a bigger motor into it. Applausi, hey ho, got no idea what the kv or the motor is um. I keep me sure, looked online really, but i didn’t hey ho, no mistake, but it’s quite good fun.
If you want to buy a little car for someone to play with you, don’t get any bolts for the spoiler that’s, not the end of the world Applause i can’t drive, but it’s quite good fun, but it’s got some power this little car. Could you have fun with it straight out of the box if you bought it? Sì, is it cheap? Sì, is it as good as a wl toys, one four, Quattro: zero zero one? No does it get stuck on a small twig? Sì, oh my god found its arch nemesis, the small twig Applause right Applause. Musica, come on boom Applause; ok, guys that’s it. For that one. Would i buy this little car for myself? Probabilmente no! Is it a good little car to buy? For i mean i bought mine, it was under 60 Libbre, but um sometimes they go up. Sometimes they get down. You could also buy the ftx tracer, which is available in this country. If you don’t want to buy anything from china – and you can buy that from any particular any hobby store you like really got it in stock it’s quite expensive over here, but the brushed version isn’t too expensive, si tratta di 50 60 quid but uh by all means – Buy one see what you like, c'è: a link in the description down below to where i bought mine from um. If you want to have a look at it, there then check it out check this bags out see if you can find out what the motor is.
