We’Re gon na take a look. A second look at the infamous one four four: zero zero one. Let’S take a second here wltoys. We know and love your naming convention, but normal people don’t. I would name this. The blue green gray, i don’t know, but i would not name it. The one four four: zero zero one, regardless abby – and i featured this on the channel around the time it came out because everybody loved it. We love wl toys. They make some of the best things ever like the one, Due, four two, nine again, a horrible name but it’s legendary and recently we love the purple and white buggy. I can’t remember the number, but this is our pick of the year and people say that this is just a longer version of this one than it is, but we like it so much more it’s a dirtier version. I need to clean it off, ma questo è. How much i like it now! You can get this under 100 linked in our description box below maybe there’s a coupon code. There i don’t know it comes with different battery options as well. We actually got the one with the bigger battery. It completely fits in there, but it is tight. It’Ll probably fall out because the battery strap isn’t long enough to hold it in place, but we wanted to give this buggy a second chance. Everybody youtubers especially love this thing except us. We ramped it off of our baby ramp that’s sitting over there and it came down and it bent the tower standoff, which is aluminum on a very small ramp.
We lost our wheel nuts to us that says no on one run, it has these issues. There are other things you can buy that are better, but everybody still loves this, so we wanted to give it a second chance at the time. I’Ll drive this so you’re, not just looking at my book. At the time of our video, we had a good friend that was buying a couple or on the market in the market for a budget four wheel drive buggy. This is actually fast. It’S nice on the asphalt we’ve said: hey look. We had a couple issues with ours: we lost the wheel, nut got a got. A vent, uh shock tower chassis there, whatever he was like, i don’t care, that’s fine. I think we sold it to him for maybe 60 Dollari. 50 Dollari. You know help a friend out and he was very happy with that price i might have kept mine, but because we didn’t we got a brand new one. So this one this one is brand brand new. You are so dangerous that’s one strike again: that’s one that’s, not a flip, but it’s a strike let’s go to the ramp, Questo, the the ramp that killed the first one, and you know what we’re always honest in our videos. We’Ve said it once we’ve said it a million times we’re not here, to sell you this rc we’re here to show you this rc and let’s, face it i’d say over half the youtubers out there are here to sell you, the rc, be careful who you watch Still some viewers – oh ow, ow wow, there goes the battery.
I thought it was the spoiler some of you, no that’s. Only that one too look how pretty the hill looks back there. You guys that’s nice we’re, not here, to sell it to you. We just want to show you our experience and we cannot change our experience through the magic of youtube if something bins, breaks falls off. You’Re gon na know about it. Oh let’s pop the battery back in because that’s going to happen. 12. 000 times this video, ok, Let ' s, take a look. I like the idea of this buggy a lot. This actually looks like it got bent back on that ramp, Uh, uh yeah, i just i could be imagining it, but that looks bent to me right. I don’t know i don’t know um, so maybe i do like this buggy i’m, not here to i’m. Not here. I want this to kind of have a redemption of itself. I do not want to walk away and say again, we don’t like this, but it will feel good to say my first impressions were correct, but the battery strap doesn’t even hold it. I mean we could get another battery strap, but the battery that came with this. This is the battery that came with it. It comes. Let me show you there’s another version that comes with a shorter, shorter, smaller battery, that i’ll link for you, guys too, you see this that’s. What this is also an option to buy this too.
You see this battery tray here this little plastic piece. It was here when i got it. ok, when we got this buggy as i was charging the battery, you take these two screws out that were here and you move it up here, so that it can hold the longer battery. Tuttavia, it did not come with a longer battery, strap, so one more that’s, a small failure. We can always put another battery strap in there right because i just have handy battery straps just like lying around or the rc centers. We probably should we probably should probably should, but but your average, i would say your average consumer that buys this would not, and we try our best to show you. The average consumer experience a lot of people that watch our videos. They say they say nate navi. You you should know better, you should put a battery strap on there before you. Take it out why in the world, would we bend the truth on what you get that’s like saying, you should take all the parts off of here and put upgrades upgrades on it and then what it’s capable of no we’re here to show you what you’re buying Right out of the box right, that was one by the way that was two two strikes. You get it on the next strike and this might actually break it. So let’s see how it is nathan, Non male, a little better air control.
It does take a minute to get used to, and i i tell you, people will say you’re ramping on asphalt. There are youtubers that go to skate parks and people. A couple people have been upset by uh us ramping on this tiny little ramp on asphalt. Like you guys realize this is yeah about six inches like it’s, not that high, like my foot there’s, my foot in my dirty boot there’s, the ramp, not a big ramp i’m, just gon na pass controls to you before it does break thanks. I didn’t put makeup on shouldn’t, put makeup on if it’s veering off it’s, just because the couple ramps have you know knocked it off direction, a bit nathan, you can trim it up. If you like is what i’m saying Applause nice, ramp, abby that’s, how you keep it in one piece? That is how you ramp right there so again guys we do actually want this buggy to do well, Cioè. Why we’re giving it a second chance! We really truly do i’m, just with me hit the ramp. We do need a bigger ramp it’s, just as fast as the purple buggy. I just i personally love that purple buggy what’s wrong with me: Applausi, Cioè, better good, è, molto veloce, è, a very fast buggy for a hundred dollars; Applausi! Oh, that was rough yeah. We we do need a better battery, strap! Oh, for the sake of the battery we’re, going to go down here and do some gravel bashing because it is kind of tearing up that battery where it’s falling out it ramps, fine it’s, Guida, fine uh.
It survived the ramp better than the first time, and maybe this isn’t bending, because when i look at it side by side with this, it is actually angled back a hair yeah. I mean i like this. This reminds me of the buggy from toy story kind of i know it does good color scheme Applause it’s, not a horrible buggy. I did actually tighten up all those wheel nuts before we came out. Okay here we go. It should drive a lot like the purple. Buggy – e si sa, i really do like it a lot and just so you guys know we uh. We did order the black buggy, which is the alternate version of the purple one because i like it so much so if you really want to see that on the channel, give this video a like, and let us know in the comments, if you’d like to see That black buggy it’s kind of like a desert, rail buggy, i mean the body – does look a lot different than the purple one. This is where it’s fun the power slide on this gravel. Like this, that was almost two hits on the one video nate. It runs really well one thing that i love about. This is the wheels the way they look. I like the solid cover on the side, and just the thing itself looks awesome. There are upgrades available for this too so because there are upgrades available for this and spare parts which wltoys is really good about.
They’Re interchangeable with the purple buggy the electronics are and a lot of the parts that are physical on the buggy itself, so that’s nice. That it’s always nice when parts work with other things and that just means better part availability, they’re readily available for you and yeah. Sometimes shipping takes a while, but i’ve i’ve heard stories of of banggood and wl toys. Taking you know anywhere from even less than a week to ship, and yes, sometimes abby and i have even waited, Credo, we’re still waiting on some drone batteries. We ordered like four years ago. The only thing people ask sometimes that are new to shopping at venga. We’Ve ordered hundreds of things on banggood we’ve had one thing not show up. I think we spent 12 dollars on some 1s. It was like a 5 pack of 1s batteries and the package the box had to be smaller than my wallet so i’m. Just guessing the post office lost it or fedex or whoever was shipping it. It probably wasn’t even been good’s fault and we never bothered to follow up with it because it was like 12. We probably should have but that’s the only thing we’ve ever had issues with we’ve had some things come broken, but they always resolve that it might take a month, but it gets resolved so um just to let you know they’re pretty good about getting things too. You just sometimes have to wait a little longer for shipping, ma sono.
They can be really fast about it. You want to drive around on the gravel yeah abby’s at the controls full throttle full throttle. Donuts i like to chase the buggy abby’s cool, with standing in one spot. I like to chase it. Applause come on. ok, Va bene. I know i know you’re trying to get my feet. Applausi, hey let’s, drive it down here a little bit. I like it on this really small gravel. On top of there, you go nice 180, oh che è, one for sure, you’re wrecked and you’re in the ditch one strike for abby. You guys all know the rule by now three strikes and we switch. This is a fun spot to drive. You can open it up and get some speed, but it power slides nice too. Oh nice, drifting off in the loose gravel yeah, the battery’s, dragging to the left, yeah guys we’re trying to protect our battery. We just need a better battery strap before it gets any worse. We might want to end the video right here because you can see i think we’re gon na have to wrap this battery with electric tape because it’s starting to come. You know the the protective plastic around it is wear and thin to me. This buggy doesn’t come without its issues. There are a couple small issues that keep it from being a perfect rc, but i will say my second impression of this is much stronger than my first impression.
I don’t know that i would still put this as my personal favorite rc of the year, because i think that the purple and white, one that we brought up here with us today, definitely beats this one overall, it just it’s just nicer, i like it. I think they they took this and they made it better that’s. How i view that one? This is still a good rc to those of you that ended up buying one good for you. Wltoys is a very good, smaller off brand and they actually have spare parts for that that’s. What i was talking about in the video yeah it’s nice they’ve really made a name for themselves. They started off, especially with the drones and stuff that they were doing. Everything was so hit and miss with them, but when they did do something right, it was good like the one two, four two nine. This is okay, Va bene. Try again one two, four two eight. I thought it was one two, Quattro, two nine that’s, the bigger one. Is it the name i don’t know i don’t think that’s the bigger one, but whatever nice track well, i tried see the naming convention’s awful. Come ho detto, with the battery on this. I love that it comes with a bigger battery, but it just doesn’t quite fit and then the battery strap. We obviously need a larger one for that to be held in better and even then it’s, not the best battery tray system, because on the purple buggy it does hold it in.
But when you ramp hard enough, it launches that battery out. So i highly recommend putting some velcro on your battery and putting some velcro on the buggy itself and i think that’ll really solve the problem. Um and again, these things are easy fixes guys. I could have done that for this video. That would be fine, but i want to show you the out of box experience. I think that’s the only fair way to look at all rcs to someone that’s been in the hobby for years. I can say, look here’s this buggy, but i know it has issues so i’m gon na do one two and three and fix it when little jimmy opens this. On christmas morning, he’s gon na want to charge the battery and go play with it. He does not want to do these things, so maybe you, as the parent now watching this video, see the things you need to do, get those ready for little jimmy before he opens it, and then he’ll have a better experience out of the box for himself comes With a decent radio, what happened to timmy nathan, i thought we were going with jimmy. I thought it was timmy. Bene, a little timmy. He feels the same. You just kicked timmy to the side. He feels the same way. I promise the radio itself is okay, it’s on the border of being toy grade, è, just lightweight and doesn’t, feel super hobby grade, but it gets the job done with a foam wheel on off.
We have our mode button and then we have steering, trim and throttle dual rates, so you can actually turn this down a lot and make it drive a lot slower for someone that’s not experienced in the hobby. This is okay. Ho, like it it’s better than a lot of things. We’Ve had on the channel and we’ll have a link in the description box below. But if you want to check out my personal favorite over this and it’s, only a few more bucks we’ll have that linked down below too, and our video and we’re really hard on that buggy and it walked away in one solid piece for just a couple: more Bucks, the same brand, that famous or soon to be famous purple and white buggy i’m glad we took a second look at this it’s, not often that we do that on our budget vehicles. What do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below? Would you like to see more follow ups on things that we both do and don’t like at all price points? If we do more follow ups, it means less newer content. You know not as many vehicles to go through so there’s some pros and cons, but i’d love to hear from you guys. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below i’m grateful to get out here in front of the camera and be able to say hey. I do or don’t like this rc and here’s.
Why and it’s all because of you guys watching and the big guy upstairs we couldn’t do our channel without god, just looking out for us and being able to let us get out and enjoy the day today was such a beautiful day in december to be able To come out and play with our seas, no snow, no rain so i’m very happy and grateful for that and i’m also very thankful to all of our patreon supporters. You guys are the reason we can get in front of the camera. 100 to say, Ehi, Non, buy something because when we say that it does make companies not so happy with us so it’s because of you guys that you help keep us straight and narrow on the path. Grazie. Grazie. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Bene, i think it’s only appropriate to have that purple and white buggy video popping up right about now.
