So this is modeled. After the ken block, hoonigan mustang uh, 1 18 scale ready to run four wheel. Drive 2.4 gigs, i don’t know if it does have ball bearings. This is a once. Uh 180 brushed motor uh claim waterproof, but none of these are really ever waterproof um, but you could take a look inside very cool rc body um, so i’ll get i’m really excited to pick this up uh. Here we go because i’ve been trying to get my hands on the earlier versions, which are these two right here. 350Z. I think this is an rx7 special body um and i have not been able to get these and the last sites that are selling them or selling them for crazy expensive. So i picked this thing up for fifty dollars, uh shipped after tax and everything got it from aliexpress and um uh history about this. Is these are the earlier versions and see it even claims a gyro system? I don’t know if that’s uh, true or not, it might have been one of the new updates but yeah. I have not been able to get either of these um without paying a ridiculous price and then all of a sudden i found out that they released this version so uh. This is known as the hbx218, at least these two are, and this one is the hbx2188a alpha so i’m really glad that these kind of fell through waited forever to find out.
It’S, probably been six months since i placed my first order for one of these and uh now i’m happy to see that they have this guy on the market, so very cool and uh i’m liking. The feel the wheels are already painted um. So not the craziest drift car but um definitely a fun little small one, at least from the videos i’ve seen very basic, remote controller. Sorry, i can’t read chinese, so i can’t tell you what all this means but i’m going to go ahead and get this cut. Open so we can see what’s going on all right, guys just got the tape cut and if you order one of these to open up the lower box, you’re going to cut the tape all around this uh center line and then basically the rc is the top Lid to the box, it is zip tied in i cut those uh already, so i could get to the rc but uh in the bag. You got your usb charger balance port charger. They give you extra body clips to use and also very cool. Is they give you two led light strips to put on the side of the body? This is that very basic transmitter on off switch steering reverse normal and slow speed. So i guess there’s. Some sort of power regulator i’m not sure what this trim is for, but if it’s uh, if the manual claims this gyro system, that might actually be the adjuster for it um.
But aside from that it’s, just the uh owner’s manual and uh here’s that model number. I was talking about 2188a and as far as hbx goes it’s high boxing, i guess so let’s take a look at the rc and it feels awesome so check that out and uh i know ken’s mustang is uh. I think it’s, a 65 uh mustang uh. This one is uh also in line with that – and this is the fastback which is pretty cool, got a little wing on the back. So just the way it looks, it looks pretty nice and it feels pretty cool right now and i wasn’t sure how it’d be being a cheaper little rc. I thought it’d kind of be a cheaper feeling um, but this is actually pretty cool inside it’s got that 180 motor with the little heat sink on it. A little metal pinion gear center uh center diff. So this can actually be converted to front and rear wheel. Drive, i believe, which is actually pretty a fun thought, but you do get these little uh plastic slash rubber drift tires. So this is a drift rc, a little tiny, uh servo. It is a five wire servo, so a little bit harder to upgrade without changing the whole two in one system, but these little ports are for those plug in lights that they gave pretty cool so i’m excited to get this out. You can definitely see running video on the other original 2188s, which uh um are look pretty fun actually but it’s, a jst uh 7.
4 s battery, which i’m actually pretty happy about, because i do have better uh or higher performance, um jst connector batteries that i definitely Want to try out in this just to give it a little bit more punch um, but all in all this looks like a pretty cool rc there’s a little. I mean there’s lots of room for upgraded parts, so they don’t cram everything in there and again. This is a 1 18 scale, so i might even look to see what other rc’s i can fit this cool body on, but that thing looks awesome and uh. I’M i’m – definitely loving it. So this is the latest mini hoon, drift rc, car and i’ve been waiting forever for it, and i can’t wait to get this out on the road and try and try it out.
