The s658 is a 132nd scale. Little rc truck it’s two wheel drive. They do make another model. The s638, which is this it kind of, looks like a cyber truck. I like the way it looks it’s from wahoo rc, but this one is this truck, but i do have the cyber truck i’ll be unboxing it later on this month. So watch for that video to come out but let’s get this unboxed see what comes in then we’re gon na, take it out and run it around. So here you get your instruction manual and then you get a bag of parts which just looks like a screwdriver. You get a usb charger and then this little thing here is a it’s like a antenna like a dummy antenna for your controller. It does come with a bunch of little road cones and also some barrels. It looks like, but it has stickers. I guess to put around the barrels, so you can set up a little obstacle course if you’d like here, we have the truck, so this truck does have an led underneath and it’s supposed to like shine through the body. You should be able to see the light through the body, so we’re going to check that out i’m going to dim the lights and just see how bright it is. Here we have the controller, as you can see, that’s, where the little little dummy antenna goes. You have your on and off switch here.
You have a high and a low speed button right here. Oh, if you squeeze the trigger, i don’t hear any clicking. Oh, i think it’s proportional throttle but non proportional steering we’ll check that out two double a’s. For the controller on the bottom of the truck here, you do have your steering trim right here. Here is the compartment where your battery is so before you can get started so yeah you have to you have to plug the battery in. If you turn this on and it’s, not working that’s, probably why you have to open this up, connect the battery and then it should work, but it does come with a little 3.7 volt 100 milliamp hour, lipo battery, so just plug the battery in and power switch Is on it’s flashing because it’s looking for the controller let’s shove this right back in there. So there is no suspension on the front and there is just one single spring right there in the middle, but it is a solid axle in the back. Let’S turn this on and check out the lights. Also let’s check out the speed button as well. So oh there yep it is proportional. So i assume i’m in low speed, let’s hit the speed switch out the led underneath flash twice. So that means you’re in the higher rate once lower rate high rate let’s see if i cannotice the speed change. When i hit the button oh yeah, i can.
I can hear a difference when i hit the change of speed. Let’S check out the led see how how bright it shines through the body i’m going to turn the lights down so there now that the lights are dimmed, you can see that the light does shine through the body and it would be pretty cool to drive it Around in the house, then you’ll be able to see it in the dark. Okay enough playing around on the table i’m going to charge this up and then i’m going to take it out. Probably take you with me back to work rip around in the shop and around the building, and there i was checking it out. I know exactly where i want to run this little truck, so let’s go all right, we’re all charged up and let’s turn it on. Here turn the controller on and we have a bind. I did mention how it is proportional throttle, but it is non proportional steering, it’s, just all or nothing so let’s rip it around here in the parking lot see how fast or how slow it is. Bounces around. Pretty good but that’s because of no suspension in the front there, so every little bump it’s gon na pop up in the air. So this is the first rate and let’s hit the speed switch right here for the high speed and let’s see if that makes a huge difference, all right: let’s, oh okay, so yeah these little rocks and pebbles and stuff are uh bouncing making it bounce around a Lot whoa so i’m curious to see what the run time is on this.
With the 100 milliamp hour, uh lipo battery that’s included wow there we go back on the wheels that’s, always a good thing when you don’t have to do the little walk of shame. I think i’m in the oh, no i was in the lower eight. I hit the button and yeah it bounces around a lot. So you’re gon na need some smooth surfaces. Maybe i’ll take you in and and run it on, the smooth concrete inside the shop there. But oh there, it is the walk of shame all right. Not much to this. You saw the different speeds. You also i mean that’s it it doesn’t need trimmed. It does seem like it’s, going to the one side, a little more so we’ll adjust the trim and uh. I want to get a montage going before the battery dies. I’M, not sure how long this little 100 milliamp hour. Lipo is gon. Na last. You saw how it handles the macadam let’s just go on a little adventure. So do oh! That i think is it yep you hold the steering too long. I think that’s it. You can hear it clicking. It goes right back the led isn’t even lit up. I mean it’s well, it does light up every now and then, but it just so that that is it, so that was the s658 from woah rc, but a few good things and a few bad things with this, the good let’s start with the good.
The good is, the led is pretty cool the light shining through you can drive in low lit areas or even dark areas and be able to see where your car is, and it just looks really cool. So that is a positive. The other positive is the battery life. The battery lasted for nearly 10 minutes, so i was kind of surprised that the 100 milliamp hour battery lasted so long. Also, it comes with the proportional throttle, so i do like that it’s, at least proportional in the throttle aspect and now we’re going to talk about the negatives of this truck, starting with the steering the steering is non proportional. It also does not have a tight turning radius, so when you turn it, it makes wide turns. So it does not make sharp turns also without it, having suspension on the front if you’re on rough pavement or anything where there’s a little bit of stones, even cracks and sidewalks the front end wants to bounce around. So that is a negative. The speed switch. I can’t really say it’s a negative or a positive. It does pick up speed when you hit the speed switch but it’s not a drastic difference, but i still did enjoy running this little car around and i can’t wait to get into this one, the s638. I will be unboxing that very soon and getting it on the channel. It is the same exact, chassis and everything else. The setup is the same it’s just a different body, but i do want to see what this body looks like when it’s all lit up, so that video will be coming soon.
Now let’s talk about the giveaway, because i will put this in for the january giveaway. I think it is. It is good enough that i wouldn’t mind giving this away.
