Now we have a brand new release from armor called the armor vortex, and this vehicle has come to us before it’s released so we’re lucky enough to be privileged to have stock check it out and do a video on it so that when it is released, when You’Re watching this right now, you can actually go and purchase it. So if you are interested in this product at the conclusion of this video jump on the website, take a look at the vortex and grab one more stocks. Last now this car, as you can see, does come. Pre assembled does come in three color options. We have the box, art red, the green one we have out and then like a pink and purple version as well on the tv. So three really nicely finished body shells uh. You will need to add a battery and charger to this car to get it up and going on the battery side of things. Much like the existing 3s blx range. You can choose between 2 cell or 3 cell around about a 5 000 milliamp capacity is, is right now the 3s option will give you the most performance out of the box. It is geared with like a kind of a do it all pinion gear, so you can do jumps, bmx tracks, rip around ovals and all that, if you do want to go to the car’s top speed, which is 97 kilometers per hour, you can install the optional Pinion gear, which is included in the package and when running this with the three cell setup, you’ll get your 97k an hour.
So this is the fastest 3s car that i’m released, so crazy performance near 100. Kilometers an hour out of a one tenth car vehicle is ridiculous, so if you’d like to go as fast as possible, install the included pinion gear 3s power and you’ll be doing that speed. Now, on the battery side of things, we do have a few options. Prime rc is uh is a great option and for those of you who want to take advantage of the spectrum, smart technology, a spectrum smartpak would be fantastic. The car does include a smart esc as well, so you can link up with all that smart tech and get some great data. Now the charger will be depending on what you want to go with there’s a few options there, whether you’re running a smart charger or an ultra power unit, but there’ll be a few options there, which we’ll link on the website. The transmitter included with this car is the spectrum dx3. Now this radio has a bunch of cool features um. One of the greatest features on this is the gyro setting and the throttle limiter. So the throttle limiter is simply just a switch on the top. What this allows you to do is change the car from 100 throttle travel to 75 and 50.. So if you’re giving it to someone else, who’s, maybe their first time driving or it’s a present for someone who’s not driven before you can flick that switch down to 50, give them half speed and allow them to get used to the car without all of the Horsepower available this means you can also do this.
Whilst you have the 3s hooked up, so you can buy the 3s pack to give you your best performance and then just limit the throttle speed down, so that someone can learn how to drive it and then turn it up as they get more comfortable. One of the other neat features that i mentioned is the avc setup, so there’s a knob on the side of the radio. This allows you to adjust how much gyro effect you have on the car, so abc is active vehicle control. Now what it gives you is a gyro. So if the car is sliding on like loose surface like gravel, for example, the car will correct itself. This makes it much easier for you to drive and keep the car in control, doing big drifts and power slides, and you can control how much effect that gyro has just with the turn of the knob on the transmitter. So if you’re on bitumen, you don’t want much jar at all, you can turn that right down. If you’re on a really loose surface, you can turn it right up. So a lot of control. The spectrum give you on the radio system to tune the car. What we’re going to do now is just take the body shell off run through some of the components included with it and highlight those for you now that we have the body shell off, we can cover off the electronics included with this vehicle and also some of The maintenance features that make this car really easy to work on and check over.
So starting off with the electronic system. It is a full spectrum setup, so using a spectrum firmer 100 mpsc, 3200 kv brushless motor and then a spectrum servo, as well as a spectrum abc compatible receiver. So with this, you get a bunch of telemetry data when using the smart system. So you have the additional center pin in the connector which hooks up give you esc temperature voltage, and you can have things like this transmitted back to your transmitter for viewing as well when using the spectrum. Smart battery that hooks up and you get all the data. So really cool features there from the firmware and spectrum smart gear. Now both of these are set up in separate modules, which makes it really easy to work on so the actual servo and esc and receiver component module comes out really quickly, all in one. So you can access all of those items quite quickly or just getting them out of the car for cleaning same with the motor setup. So the motor and slipper comes out with one screw removal, so the drive shaft is sprung. If you can see that, but the drive shaft springs back out, so it’s really easy to get that whole slip and motor assembly out of the car again for inspection cleaning checking over and any repairs that you may have to do. And the same goes for the slipper tightening so that one screw and you can access the slipper to tighten that or loosen that off, depending on what kind of surface you’re running or what kind of performance you’re.
Looking for speaking of ease of maintenance, the front and rear differentials are also modular and super easy to access. So not many screws needed to actually get the front and rear differentials out. If you need to maintain those change, oils lubricate gears things like that, the car is super easy to get a part really quick to get apart. So if you have to replace any any parts, maintain the vehicle super easy to do that so armor put a lot of thought into their vehicles, not only performing really well but being easy for you to actually work on and maintain. So really all in all. A fantastic vehicle that arma thought out really well from top to bottom Music, thanks for joining us again today, guys for an overview of the all new armor vortex vehicle.
