I haven’t ever filmed this losi db pro yet i’ve had it about 10 months, it’s been sitting pretty much. Most of the winter don’t run my cars in the winter i’m gon na do a running video and then follow the running. Video i’m gon na do a brief review of what i think of this car or what my experience has been. If you want to see that, after the running footage enjoy all right, let’s give the uh loci db pro a run out here in the grass so running on 3s today this thing’s a ripper Music thank so Music whoa, foreign Applause, so Applause Applause, foreign. So my battery does all right just got done running it just blew it off with the air compressor and i’m just gon na go over a couple of things that i’ve experienced with this car. First of all, out of the box handling is awesome. Music electronics feel really good out of the box, not a big fan of the controller but handling, and everything was really good love the body setup it looks good. The best part is, though, is the hinge. It keeps the dirt out pretty well it’s, pretty much sealed. All the way around keeps stirred out good, like that. I haven’t had to tone any of the shocks since i’ve got this. I have not replaced any of the oils and typically it’s one of the first things. I’Ll do but i haven’t yet but i’m going to it’s due for a new service um, so chassis, wise everything’s been good to crack.
The wing mount here. Just replace that i will say big drawback to breaking the wing mount. You have to buy the whole cage and it’s like i could be wrong, but i think it was like 30 bucks, 25, 30 bucks somewhere in there just to get the wing mount and every time you need a wing mount. If that’s a problem, you have to buy the whole thing. That is not something i was excited about, but in all this time i only broke it. The one time hardly even noticed it till i was going through and cleaning it up other than that i’ve had bent some shocks. The shock mounting screws here a couple times just bent them in quick replacement haven’t had to buy anything for those just had some screws. Laying around replaced the servo, this was a ko proposed servo the stock one was too slow, didn’t like it very well. This one’s faster, maybe not much stronger, but it’s faster um. Now is the only problems i’ve had with this is electronics um, speed control the spectrum, speed control seemed real good at first it’s, a smart ese Music. I was doing backflips and some high jumps and it was landing pretty flat chassis, but it was also in grass and within the first month the esc went out on me. The only thing i can say about that is is i got a hold of tower. Hobbies is who i bought it through um.
They give me a number for horizons, warranty department i sent it in and they replaced it. It took a couple weeks, unfortunately, but they just sent me a new one, so that was taken care of and it’s been working. Fine since then, but i don’t do you know really long sin you know tie jumps anymore because the slapping was just killing it um, it does have a tendency to run hot the motor is, i mean this thing is really quite fast out of the thing i Don’T know what the speed is, but just general running around in your yard and stuff it’s plenty fast, um let’s see what else oh i’ve had a but i’ve had a problem with the stock receiver. When you turn on the remote and then you turn on the car, sometimes it’ll take up to maybe seven eight minutes before the receiver turns on and i sent the receiver into horizon and they sent it back to me and said there was nothing wrong with it. But the first time i tried it after getting it back from them, it took five minutes to turn on once it’s on it’s, fine, it doesn’t turn on and off, but for some reason, they’ll just sit here forever and not engage with the remote on and then All sudden, when it kicks on it, just and it’s ready to go but it’s kind of annoying there’s. This lag that i don’t know what it is.
So not a fan of the receiver esc seems to be okay. I just didn’t it just didn’t handle the jumping motor does run hot um. You know with these ready to run motors they’re, not the most efficient, so this does run hot, but it’s super fast. But in the running video you may have heard a little bit of a bearing squeal. I think there’s a motor bearing going out in this i’m going to test that and see. If i can track it down. I keep hearing this squealing noise. I think it sounds like a bearing so yeah that’s about it on this uh, not too many problems. Um, i put a protech chassis protector, rpm front and rear skids, aluminum rear hubs, aluminum center differential, you can’t, see it. I did the machined aluminum motor mount and the machined aluminum center braces. Next i got to do the the knuckles and the bearing carriers or the the carriers and the steering knuckles for the front that’s. What i’m going to do next on this, and maybe even try some of the carbon fiber parts that basher queen makes for this? I haven’t decided yet but yeah. This is a pretty good. Car electronics are not my favorite um. I mean, like i said, the receiver hasn’t failed me, but i don’t know what the delay is with it. Turning on and off and the avc is supposed to be turned off being able to turn off, and i have got it off before, but somehow it keeps turning back on and i don’t like the abc it’s great for beginners, but not somebody that’s been you know, Running for a while, so yeah that’s my review.
