Today’S video is going to be about an rc car review and it’s going to be on the ftx vantage brushed. I hope you enjoyed today’s video Music guys. So this is my car. It is an ftx vantage brushed. This cart is really good and i love it, but i have found it sometimes to be quite unreliable, quindi sono, just showing you around the car i’m gon na spin it the other way now. So if you’re wondering what this blue thing is underneath here, that is my stand for my car, ok, quindi sono, going to show you the modifications i’ve done to it. So can you see that the log nut is blue and there the locking nut is blue? I bought the blue version because the silver version looked a bit boring. ok, so moving on to more modifications, can you see that there’s another blue piece, that’s aluminium? I got that aluminium piece because whenever you know like say, if you reversed and um it, you will hit something like here. The force would go that way and it would snap the one out the way. So i got um if you can see there’s a little blue sparkling piece there and there at the back. So that is the upgrade i’ve done to this car. So i’m gon na take the lid off the car and i’m going to show you the insides okay. So this is the motor this motor. I have found to be quite unreliable because the car, whenever you know like say if you do donuts the car heats up and once it heats up the motor is basically a goner.
The battery terminals are ec freeze. I found them quite good. The stock versions are rubbish because save like say the esc or the motor gets hot. This just melts, so i got the a better upgraded version of the battery connector. So this right here is a um esc. The esc basically tells the car what to do so safe. I got my remote control and turned my car. This receiver picks it up. Then the signal goes through the wires to the esc. Then it tells the different parts of the car. cosa fare. This is the servo the servo steers the wheels so say: i’m gon na turn, my remote control on now, ok, Sono. Also gon na turn, my car on. So just this one little switch. It has plenty of speed for going fast, ok, so now i’m going to show you the werewolves Music. These glues are brand new, so they won’t balloon and looking at the wheels you can see, they look basically brand new because they are these rules. I have never driven on yeah and i’ll. Show you what the old ones look like! Oh no, it just rolled past. This is the old will. Come potete vedere, this will compare to that. What would you rather be going off road on this wheel, which you just lose grip? The second you put power or this wheel, which is really nice for off roading. If you look at daredevil, this would be the good one for you, but if you like for rc car, this is a really good wheel.
ok, so they make two version of this car. They make a brushed version and a brushless. This is the brushed version. Quindi sono, going to show you my batteries now with my battery. Questo è un 500 milliamp hour battery that i upgraded from this one. Questo è un 1 800 ora milliamp. What one do you think is better the higher medium power or the lower milliamp power. The higher one is actually better because this one you can drive longer on the car for okay. So now let me go to the charging talking about batteries. Here is my charger. This charger is quite good. Potete vedere. Sai, come te, have little connectors that you can change see if you like, had a stop version of this connector. You can just pull that down. Pull that out, pull that down, pull that out and look here. You can take it out and we’ll, swap it all right. So if you see if you’re looking closely, you can see um different amps, so there is 0.5 amps there’s one amp. There is 2 amps, there is 3.5 and there is 5 amps. So what you should do, if you buy this car is, if you have this charger, you want to start it off on two amps. Then soon, like your six or seven front, turn it to three amps and then like on your like ten, more runs after that change it to 5. Amps is why this battery life will decrease dramatically.
ok. So now let me go into the gearing, so the gearing on this car is um. Oh no, i got the gears, so let me just pick that gear up okay, so this is opinion gear, keep that in mind pinion gear there – and this is a spur gear. That’S a spur gear, so what this does is these two gears connect to each other this one? Let me see what the car this one goes on. The motor and this one goes on the drive shaft. So what it does is that it is that this this one spins and then this this. These two are touching then, when that one spins this one spins round, but what i found is this one wears away quite a bit. You can see the teeth are like flat and at the end it goes up. So if this happens to your car chop, this chop this one out of the window, not literally you can buy replacement ones for it, we’ll not literally chuck it out the window or just put it in the bin recycle bin. This. This is a replacement that goes there and you can also get replacement ones of these this these two, these two gears came out of my car. It just goes under there. I forgot talking about this back panel. Here is look. This is the stock version. This actually survived the crash. The rear piece actually broke in that crash just salvaged this.
The first time it broke was that i was drifting and it banged into this wheel right here, and it sent all the force this way and then snapped it in the middle. The second time it broke was that i was reversing quite fast and it hit. You know like a drain rain cover and then that just sent all the force that way and snapped back there so yeah. That is the ftx advantage. ok, so this, if you want to buy this car i’ll, leave the link in the description below and plus um, if you’re in britain. You know winters are bad yeah so and i’m in britain, quindi sono, not too good outside so i’ll just roll. Some clips on me having fun in this car go Music, do Music guys.
