I have another unboxing for you today, it’s the hsp 1 8 Scala, short course truck uh model, Numero 94763 Uh, il corpo. They call it a lacera. So this came in pretty good condition. The bottom of the box is uh, broken um, but we’ll see how it looks inside, but the top of the box looks pretty solid, so i’m going to go ahead and open this thing right up and give you a shot of what this is um and actually Right there, so i did pick up the black and red version of this guy right it here you a good shot and there you can see the body name. Lacera, um rally, racing very cool. This came with a plastic cover on top that’s, something i only see on the traxxas or very rarely on one of these cheaper rc’s, but let’s take a look get inside so the manual um i’m assuming that’s the uh transmitter number mt 305, if that’s the one. I recall that’s also what came on the uh hsp touring car, the flying fish. So nothing else, oh and then we do have a antenna tube to keep it extended so i’m, assuming yeah it might be the mt 305 Trasmettitore. So let’s open this up and yep fair enough uh mt 305 Trasmettitore. I don’t know about the range of these but they’re pretty decent. They take four double a batteries which i prefer over the eight double a that the fly sky gt2 comes with, which is common for a lot of these cheaper rc’s between vrx and hsp, at least um, but i’ve been using.
This, like i mentioned on the 110 Scala, touring car and it’s, been pretty easy, pretty solid to use very basic adjustments, steering trim, Gas, trim so yeah. I have no issues with this: got a nice foam, Sterzo, Ruota, grip and then now to the good stuff. Sono. Gon na go ahead and pull this out, you can see the big old gash on the bottom of the box um, but it doesn’t seem to affect anything at the moment because there was a nice protective cardboard on the bottom of this um so i’m. Very happy about that so i’m gon na go ahead and clip these. I actually have a set of cutters with me this time so there’s a good shot of the truck and uh it’s. Looking pretty awesome, i’m very happy about this cover. Um packaging means a lot to me and it’s rare that you get something nicely packaged from overseas. Let me take off the body: clips got the nice cover and this body looks like it’s in perfect condition. Let me prop that up, so you can get a good look very nice, so super clean. I like the hsp bodies um, because they’re very oh man, so bummer i do got ta. I do have a cracked body right here on the rear post, so that kind of sucks but i’ll tape it and use it as long as uh it’ll last for so yeah bummer, because i do like i was mentioning.
I do really like the hsp bodies. Um i’m, assuming it must have been upside down, because you could see that grease that collected right here, but anyways that’s logistics um now to the good stuff, is the inside of this um. So i picked this up uh from banggood, while it was still available. I know there’s this major shipping delay on these now, but great thing about this being a 1 8 Scala. It does have the 17 millimeter hex wheel locks. This is they listed as a cxp, .21 engine, but very cool. It says hsh engine which it did in the pictures. This is very nice because you can see it’s got a nice solid, looking uh metal spur gear and there’s the clutch bell and pinion um. One thing i really like about the hsps is that they do have these handles um. For some reason they make a difference. Just you know, picking up, maybe a hot engine or figuring out a place to push down on while you’re trying to pull start. These things that’s something that the vrx does not have um, but this thing is looking pretty great um. This has the um, i guess the higher line or the better air filter which is supposed to collect, moisture or allow moisture to come out of the sponge. Um you’ll see a similar one on my vrx rh801 and then, Naturalmente,, you’ll see the metal tuned pipe in the back, which is awesome and let’s.
Take a look at the bottom. You go so this is a single speed, uh most, if not all, of the hsp 110 series uh seem to come in two speed. Um and i have not found anything um. I have not found out if they do make a two speed option for the hsp. One eight series and they do cover up the spur gear which you do see on the other models, but going back to this, this is the uh your receiver box, um, i mentioned in my rh801 i’m a huge fan when they put body clips instead of screws That way, it’s easier to access um to access what you need, but here is the battery pack it’s kind of greasy in there yeah there’s a bunch of grease in here i’m. Sorry that took forever to pull out, but four double lace for the receiver pack, gst connector. I do have um battery packs coming on the way for these, so i don’t have to use the double lace. These receivers do have a built in fail, Sicuro, il che è fantastico, especially for a nitro. So that is something great kind of cool. They seem to have put a second compartment door for the receiver and then a separate one for the uh battery pack. Even though you can see that they’re uh connected or the compartments combined inside, but i do like that, they’re separate just because uh, you kind of have an area to stick, one versus the other um, your typical brake front, brake, Posteriore, brake and then here are the Rods to adjust brake rods right here, this does look much nicer than the 110 series from hsp.
This looks more in line with the vrx setup and then here’s your throttle, there’s your low speed needle adjuster and then we’ll go through and look uh. That is your idle screw right there and then, Naturalmente,, your high speed needle right here um. So aside from that, i think that’s much. Basically what there is to cover pull start instructions so um. The hsps do include these warning tabs telling you not to pull these pull starts out too far, and they say 40 Centimetri, i think that’s around 10 inches or so um i’m getting used to it and having the tendency or learning that you really don’t have to Pull these too hard or too far, so this is actually a great um, a great warning label, because that is, i think that is one of the most common breaks. Um on these is the pull starter um. But aside from this oil filled shocks, plastic shock bodies um, i don’t have any concerns with them, because i haven’t broken any plastic shocks yet um, but if needed, i’ll look for a nice set of metal ones, but this is pretty cool i’m. A big fan of the short horse trucks, um and rally cars, as you mentioned, um put the body back on it, so you can take a look and it’s looking pretty cool. I’M i’m liking. This uh. I am bummed because of the broken body right here, but i know banggood’s not gon na do anything about it, Così, whatever um so yeah, i hope you enjoyed uh definitely check out hybrid 32494 for his unboxing and he actually does a setup on this specific rc.
Uh, which is pretty awesome, very thorough and he actually uh gets it started in like one pull, il che è fantastico, amazing um. I have not had that that luck or fortune yet but again, i’m a nitro, newbie and uh still trying to figure things out um, but another cool thing. I wanted to share that. I noticed on the box because i am a sucker for rally cars. I saw that they have this thing right here, so i am gon na get online. Looking for this hsp tyrant, which looks to be a 1 8 1 8 series touring slash rally car, because this does look like the wrx sti body, and that looks pretty cool.
