This toyota pickup truck slash crawler out now for his test drive. I did a unboxing overview of this. My last video. So if you guys want to see what all comes with this truck be sure to check out that video on my channel, ma come potete vedere, if you watch that video i didn’t have all the accessories attached, so i’ve got these little red hooks on it. You know i got all the the door knobs handles. I should say some of the some of the decals, the rear stuff on the hatch stuff, like that all put on there these little step boards before to get into the truck that kind of stuff all attached to it. I did have the light on here. It looks like it must have fallen off inside. I must have bumped it there’s a little. This looks like a light that goes up here and i did have that attached, but it’s not on at the moment. Come potete vedere, the headlights are on because i have it powered up and it’s bound up and ready to go now. This is just powered off a little 2 cell, lithium ion very small brushed motors. This is not meant to be fast, è, actually very, very slow because it’s a crawler. So even if i mentioned it, just being a pickup truck, it’s really meant to be a rock crawler, so let’s take it i’m going to take it down some of the dirt.
Qui, uh next to my house, new construction, this house is really could be good for climbing over stuff, so i’ll put it down let’s. Take it out here for a little test, drive guys let’s, set it down and, as i mentioned in the overview, this just has a steering trim. It is proportional, anche se, which is nice but it’s, and it does have a portion of throttle, as you guys can see, give it a little bit and that’s full speed, but it is very slow either way again. This is not meant to be a windy races. This is meant to crawl let’s. Just take it down here and see if we can go to this little trench, a ravine that they’re digging here, where some cables buried see how it goes through this, Oh, Oh, Mio Dio, let’s see if we can ease it up now, it’s a little bit. Probably too deep, there oh made it through, though these crawlers, sometimes it’s just a matter of getting the right angle with your front tires and you don’t always want to give it full throttle. Sometimes you just want to give it a little bitty bit of gas. Let ' s. Take it up over here very nice. This is a very nicely balanced crawler, so it it just it. The balance is well on it. So it’s not going to want to uh tip over when crawling as easily as some left to right or even front to back it’s, just a nice little crawler a lot of fun if you’re into the crawling – and it looks really good – i mean this – this early 80S, mid 80s type of toyota pickup truck, was very, very popular and become a classic body style.
So a lot of people are picking. These i’ve been picking these up for a while because it looks great – and this is just you know – in white – which i left it white, but you can certainly paint this it’s a perfect uh base to paint. But since i was, i was offered a secondary body. A toilet land cruiser body i’m gon na put that onto this chassis in a future video – and i am gon na paint that one let’s see if it can make it through here. I don’t know if it’s gon na make it through some of these dirt. Clods are awfully big in there, so i just left this one white yeah, Io no, Penso che sia, probably gon na be too steep. Oh let’s see, Credo, we’ve kind of topped it off there it’s a little bit too a little bit too steep and it was getting caught and just couldn’t get the rear wheels. Couldn’T get any traction to try to pull it over, because this is obviously four wheel drive which any crawler has got to be. Four wheel drive but really neat really a lot of fun if you’re into crawling – and this would be a great gift for a younger uh. You know a pre teen or even a teenager if they’re, relatively nude rc, because it’s not real fast but it’s gon na be fun for them to be interactive with crawling and being able to actually see what an rc vehicle can do and it’s not real expensive.
These have been really popular, these wpl trucks and their military trucks. They have a lot of these replicas really nicely detailed, rc that’s very inexpensive, and you can see why they’re so popular. This is just a wonderful looking truck with really nice detail. Great choice of body style and the proportional steering is a big is a big plus looks like i’ve. Oh got out of it. Credo, and i i didn’t have the original one ready to run. I did have a kit version which i did unfortunately, didn’t have an esc and never got around to building it. I know kind of lame excuse. I think that the ready to run version – the original was not proportional on the steering, but i could be wrong if i am, let me know in the comments, but this one definitely is that’s. Perché? I think this is more the upgrade or newer version of this truck yeah. If you want a budget crawler, it also looks great and is a real body style, that of a real pickup truck. Questo è stato, you know very popular back in the day. I can’t recommend this enough on a i think, make maker fire for sending this out to me to review. I really appreciate it. If you’re interested in picking this up, there will be a purchase link to maker fire’s website. They also carry this extra extra body it’s. The different accessories for this truck on their website and it’s, not real expensive.
There is a code. I’Ll include that as well in the video description – e questo è, Credo, it’s just my first name ryan. I think it was like seven percent off and i i was not told that that’s specific to this to this truck. I believe that the seven percent off your entire purchase of anything on maker fire store, um, Sono, pretty sure that’s the case yeah it’s doing pretty darn good like even if i get caught i back up and look at that and do a little maneuvering. I can get it back off of stuff. Quite often, and it’s got good power that’s some pretty thick uh wet. You know dirt there, some of the mud. It was able to still push that dirt and make it out let’s see if we can get to this little area here where they bury the uh, the spout, the the drainage from the spouts off the house and that’s settled a little bit there yeah. He has no problem yeah. This is really neat a lot of people like these, just because of the look and the fact that you can do some modifications, paint jobs and such so, even though i’m going to keep some white i’m really looking forward to getting that. Uh toyota land cruiser body painted i’m just debating what i’m going to go with, maybe a dark, green or a blue, even maybe something a little bit less uh common. Like an orange i really like orange or even maybe just go with the red.
I just haven’t decided what color i want to go with that. I would say i probably like the toyota pickup style body, even more so than the twitter land cruiser, but for the sake of getting this video published, i didn’t want to mess with having to paint this body so that’s. Why i didn’t, i still might you know, go ahead and paint this just it’d be easier to pull off some of the pieces and then paint it, but i’ll probably just keep this white and then go ahead. I said paint the extra body and i’ll: do a i’ll, probably paint it and show you guys. The body looks like and then get it all all the pieces put on it and then get it attached to the chassis here of this. And then you guys can you know see what it looks like up. I don’t know if i’ll do a drive video, i probably will, but i mean it’s, non gon na, be any different than this it’s. More of a fact, just let me see what the other body looks like if you’re into that, and then you know you can just have one you can buy this truck by the chassis and then you can just switch chassis to whichever one you want. I don’t. I not look to see how you do it. It should just be a matter of taking some screws off the bottom and then lifting the chassis and removing it, and it probably be since the headlights are powered – and i probably have to put some uh – probably have to unplug something from the lights all right guys.
I think that should be enough. I mean i’m just driving in circles here, but gives you an idea. This has got good power, really neat. Looking truck and uh again, i want to thank maker fire for sending this out to me. So if you’re new to the channel be sure to subscribe, i appreciate that click.
