Umm 50. I think i’ve seen 55 out of the box there’s a couple of bits and pieces. I missed off of the unboxing i’ve had a bit more of a look at it and there’s a couple of things i want to quickly talk about then we’re going to get straight in and see how this gets on and i’m telling you. This thing does not disappoint; it is up to the normal standards of the armor 3s range it’s, a tank anyway, let’s get in a bit closer. So a quick chat about a few things. I’Ll show you a few things, and then we get straight into the video. So the first thing i want to talk about is i’ve. Seen a few comments. I made a comment on the price this is about in the uk i’m thinking about 50 O 60 pound more than the other 3s range now i’ve seen a few comments saying it’s. Just wheels and a body and they’ve bumped, the price up that is not strictly true. It’S got the newer spectrum and firmer esc in there same specs as the old blx, but it is the newer smart technology and you’ve also got a spectrum metal geared servo in there. It has got new wheels and tires, so that is correct. It’S also got shorter shocks, different shock towers, you’re. Now getting the dx3 spectrum. Radio that’s got avc on it paired up to the abc compatible receiver. Sì, you are getting a new body.
Now i, like the body style, a lot of people have commented on things. It looks like, and i kind of agree on the styling um this wing, though very nice wing it’s got. I didn’t notice these before, but it’s got the little hex screws there that just protect the corner, and i landed this on its like back end. Quite a few times that has held up really well taking a bit of a chunk out of the body there on some heavy landings, but overall this is really held up. Sì, new body new wheels, but that is not just what you’re paying for yes, i do agree. It should be a little bit more expensive than the other range because you are getting um. Some slight upgrades, mainly the electronics to the previous 3s ones, but i don’t know whether they’ve just tipped that price up a little bit too and far from my liking. This is now in the uk about 400 pounds once you’ve added a battery to it. You’Re talking 450 plus you’re getting on to 6s range. I know you need batteries for success, but anyway that’s enough about price. I gave this a very good bash i’m, not the hardest of drivers, but i did send it. We did do some backflips. I don’t think with these wheels that this is designed to be a skateparks or stunt truck it’s designed to go fast on like a dirt track and stuff it’s low slung it’s got that wider offset there it’s got them shorter shocks, it does sit lower at the Front, i think it is designed for like a fast dirt track.
I don’t think it’s designed for doing backflips front flicks and stunts at a skatepark. You just you’ve got plenty of wheel, speed on it. You just haven’t got because these tyres don’t balloon much. You haven’t got that centrifugal force, so you need them wheels. Turning to flip it, i would be very tempted if i was taking it to a skate park to put the um the big rock wheels and tires they’re a bit softer. They balloon a bit more but it’s, going to give you more control in the air once i got used to it got the hang of it. Let it do the work, let it glide. It was actually all right now. This is the difficult bit. Ne vale la pena? The money, Credo, it’s all i’m going to say, is it’s very, very similar, a mio parere, to the how the big rock drives and it’s a little bit shorter wheelbase. But it handles like the big rock, Non sono sicuro, se è, quite as controllable in the air. The price difference is probably what’s going to. Sai, sway me towards uh the big rock price i’m not going to talk about this compared to the some of the other one temp scale, 3s stuff out there i’m going to do it on another video. But for me, if you’re not too worried about the price difference and you can afford one buy one it’s awesome if you’re tipping on your kind of the top end of your budget, get a big rock get a granite and you won’t be disappointed.
You won’t be disappointed with any of the 3s range, and that is what i’m going to say about it. I would recommend it if you’re not too worried about the price. Buy it it’s. Definitely a solid truck now let’s get into the video well. Ci siamo, then vortex 3s blx let’s see what you got. Shall we 55 out of the box these things mr x max over there. We avoid him that one gets squashed wow this thing’s fast so fastest 3s. Yet this it’s the fastest one armor i’ve made and i’m not gon na speed test it today, Ma 55 fuori dalla scatola, stop gearing um easily 60 on the speed, gearing i’ve not changed. Anything on it not changed anything not done anything with the shocks. So it’s quite soft. It flies, though this thing’s going to launch so well. So all my unboxing didn’t give it my initial thoughts, because you know well didn’t give it my complete thoughts on it. Cause i’ve not run it. I love running my stuff before i give any real opinion on it. Now this jumps nice something rubbing. Bene, i don’t know it just feels like there’s, maybe something rubbing, but maybe it’s just the gear in yeah. This is nice whoa yeah, Penso che sia, just a drivetrain, è, quite noisy i’m. Not sure avc is on yet hang on so abc’s off let’s turn it all the way up. Oh sì, you can see it working now, Sono, not i’m, not sure you need abc in this, but let’s turn it to the midway point.
This is so fast, really not sure i’m a fan of the avc on this, not for my style of driving anyway slow and steady yeah that jumps nice very nice. Oh first impressions. This is good i’m, just not good at driving it it’s a kevin talbot subscriber there he’s not subscribed to my channel yet, though Music hmm i’m steering what’s going on, not sure what happened now. They’Re steering just seemed to uh have a bit of a wobble. I don’t know if there was a stone or something stuck in it. Nice it’s done it again, c'è. Sicuramente, oh there we go. Did you hear that we’ve got a stone in the steering? I’Ve never heard that fall out, but i need to sort my landings out. I’M impressed with this thing i don’t think it’s as agile as the mt 10. Al momento, i think them smaller wheels. You can’t control it as much because they don’t balloon. Oh come on man, Sì lo sono, not sure if it’s, quite as controllable as i’d. Like definitely something either in that drive train like clicking next for success 6s here i’ve not had a 6s crating. No, i had an outcast um and a typhon it’s, quite a bit smaller isn’t. It see if we can backflip it. Oh yeah yeah back flip. Oh, it actually jumps well that’s why you need um hard case lipos, oh che è, quite a new one, i’ve got as well. I found what was rubbing that must have fallen out of there.
That’S fallen out of there and then chewed it up. Oh, i don’t think i’ve got anything to fix that right. I’Ve made a very sketchy um fix by sticking the balance leads um away from each other, although that lipo this proper banana, it must have come loose in there right. I want to keep running this so i’m going to risk it. It might set fire but make a fun video right we’re. Back on again, i don’t recommend that fix on the battery, but especially if you’re going to throw the thing around like that. But i want to keep running it. Oh my word: what am i doing? Bene, siamo, certainly giving it a test aren’t. We it’s controllable in the air it’s controllable in the air, but is it as controllable as some of the others? Sono, not overly sure whoa. It landed on the wheels and then it just caught it wrong. It is it’s, Non male. You need a bit of height, anche se, to to get on throttle. È, Non. I don’t think it’s very nimble, one like the smaller it’s too it’s too twitchy on the little jumps, but get some air and it’s pretty good. That was a good one. Oh, come on every time: oh about the same same distance, oh straight into the ground, that’s a good shot, whoa there’s, the first one broken these are so hard to get out so far, so good everything’s still, as i expect from a 3s armor and i’ve, had Some terrible terrible landings.
Your body’s got a bit of war damage already and other than that i’m impressed. I should have kept the back flip going on that. Oh sì.
