Now i’ve had a little bit of a break since my last videos, uh, mainly due to the fact that we’ve been a bit of a lockdown here in the past week, but i’m back again guys uh. It is the fourth of july today so like to um. You know wish everyone over in the usa a great fourth of july hope you enjoy your holiday there and um yeah. This is the new jlb racing, cheetah, guys uh. I say new, because this is their latest model. Uh the jlb cheetah series has been around for a few years, but uh. This is their new one and uh it’s got a bit of a different face, lift and uh yeah. This was provided to me by banggood guys it’s, their 80 amp esc version ready to run kit, so you’ve got everything that you need with this rc. All you have to do is provide the double a batteries with the controller here. So, as you can see, it is a 110 scale, full drive, brushless off road trucky unruly speed with massively fun, so this one’s meant to be pretty quick, guys um. They do claim it’s got about 80 kilometer an hour top speed on this one and i believe it can handle 3s and 4s with the 80 amp esc, guys so uh yeah we’re gon na have a quick look at this today. Um i can’t run it today. I was planning to, but it is pouring with rain there’s a bit of a break in the weather at the moment.
Uh. I tried filming this a few minutes ago and because i’m in the shed, it was just pouring down the tin roof here. So yeah quick, unboxing, guys um what i’ll leave uh in the description below is a whole bunch of links that banggood have provided to me during this seventh of the seventh sale, so they’re gon na they’ve. Already some of the sales already started guys so uh there’ll, be some links below in the description, go check them out: there’s, a coupon savings pages summer, prime sales, the 7 7 sale, obviously and a whole bunch of different links, so check them out below guys. I’Ll leave them in the description and the pin comment, along with the link to this uh rc truck. Okay, guys. This is what we get in the rear to run kit of the jlb cheater. We have the little balance charger here that comes provided. Okay, so this one can take uh we’ll charge 2s and 3s. Okay, so you’ve got all your charging indicators there when it’s charging and when it’s, full okay – and you got a little uh power cord here as well. Okay, so you just need an adapter. If you’re, not in europe that’s, it looks like a european plug, so just put a worldwide uh adapter on it and you’re good to go now, uh that these are perfect to charge up your lipos. If this is maybe one of your first rc’s and you don’t have a hobby grade charger yet, but what i’ll do? I will provide a link to a hobby grade charger that i do use they’re, really cheap they’re around 30 dollars.
So i’ll put that in the link below i do highly recommend that you should charge with a hobby grade charger, but that one will get you going if you don’t have one already. Okay, now here’s the transmitter, nice lightweight transmitter feels good in the hand you can even stir it with one hand there um got a rubber looks like a rubber wheel on this one, not foam, but it feels nice and grippy fully proportional, of course over here on The side we have the on and off switch here on this side and on this side here at the front of the control we’ve got a three way. Third channel switch, just like that, that’s, probably for the lights, i’m. Guessing okay, i haven’t looked at the instructions yet i’m, just opening up for the first time here on the top we’ve got the dial. We’Ve got uh a few dials here. Actually, four of them you’ve got your throttle, trim and steering trim on the right hand, side and then you’ve got your dual rates for your steering and your throttle on the left. So you can change the actual max speed of this truck by just turning the dial. You can have it slow down or full power, looks like we’ve got a low indicator light that would be for i’d, say the actual batteries that you fit in the bottom here, which it takes for double a batteries. Okay, so once they’re running low uh, maybe that indicator light will flash to let you know you’re pretty low on batteries, but yeah, not a bad controller guys.
You know it’s lightweight plastic and it should do the job rather well. Okay, so now here we’ve got some documentation. We also have the decal sheet or sticker sheet to uh, put all the headlight stickers and uh. You got the side windows there, jlb racing 4×4 cheetah all the branding, uh stickers here, okay, so that’s that – and we also have a document for the esc and motor i’m. Seeing here let’s see this is a 80 amp version, so this is for your speed controller. Okay, so a bit of a some details and specs there and on the back, it shows you the programming card that you can use for this one, okay and all your different parameters, and we also have the user manual, of course, jlb racing cheater instruction manual. Here there is the name of the company there. You can check out their website their jlb racing and there’s, some specs there of the length and width the wheelbase. So no it’s made out of nice paper this one pretty thick a4 sheet of paper diagram of the whole car. Everything you need to know guys. We’Ve got some exploded diagrams here of everything, the shocks the swingarm assemblies, so it’s really nicely detailed book. Okay throughout let’s. Go to the back here and we have all our spare parts list guys with all the model numbers and codes. Okay, so we’ve got a few pages there, and also on this last page, we have the checklist of all those parts, so you’ll be able to find most of these parts on banggood guys and possibly aliexpress and websites like that.
Okay, awesome, okay, guys! So here is the jlb cheetah, also known as the triple 101 rc truck it’s 110 scale, as i mentioned before on the front here, you can see. It’S got a front basher bar with the uh two leds on the front here: okay, it’s got nice, oil filled shocks, so they feel properly tuned. Okay got some big chunky tyres here guys they are foam, filled nice, soft compound and look at the tread pattern on that. These are going to grip for sure pretty. Well, i think, on all terrain: okay, willie barr at the back here, nice, tough wheelie bar, and i just really like the design of this new series. Shell guys look at that jlb racing with a cheater on the bonnet and uh. Once i put those decals on will look a lot better too got the cheater on the side as well, really really nice, so uh let’s have a look underneath the hood now with these shelves, i typically like to put some cloth tape just to protect and make Them more durable now this lexan shell does look like it’s pretty decent quality, okay, so it’s flexible, where it’s meant to be okay, but what i’m going to do i’m going to put some cloth tape in there? I advise um all these guys to do that. It just saves the shell on some. You know really hard landings. It will save your shell from splitting and cracking so uh yeah really nice show.
I really do like this color combo. You can get this in like a turquoise, bluish green as well. Okay on this new model, so it depends what color you like. I just like this uh bright orange with the with the dark gray and the white. I reckon it really pops it’s, also black as well black stripes as well. Okay, so here it is here guys here is the chassis. Okay, let me bring it a bit closer to the camera. This car, or this truck, weighs just under four kilograms. Okay, so it’s got some decent weight to it. Now here we have uh the battery. This is a three cell battery that comes with it. It is a 4 000 milliamp hour, okay, three 3s and it’s a 70 uh. Sorry, 30c rated battery we’ve got some nice velcro straps, also with the jlb racing logo on them. So you can see. This is fresh. I haven’t even ran this truck yet so there it is there guys 4 000 milliamp hour now this can supposed to handle a 4s as well guys. They do claim around 20 minutes run time on this 25 minutes on the on the um on the specs online. But you know it all depends how you drive these cars if you flat out all the time you’re not going to get 25 minutes out of it, you might get 15, but nice hard pack here. Okay, guys, i’ll start you off.
So the esc is the 80 amp esc here, like i said it is 3s and 4s compatible, and we have in front of that on the servo. It is uh the receiver from jlb racing. This servo is a 15 kilogram servo. Here your typical 110 scale, servo. Okay, now the motor here it is a 3670 2500 kv, so it should provide a heck of a lot of power for this car. Okay. So, as you can see on the top here, we have a thick uh second floor chassis, brace there. You can see how thick that is guys. It looks like it’s about four millimeters thick might even be five millimeters thick we’ve got an alloy looks like to be an adjustable um motor mount as well. So you can gear this one up and yeah. Just the overall construction of this guys, i mean look: how thick the shock towers are. They are pretty darn thick as well on front and rear, and there is the shockies guys big, bore or aluminum shocks. It even has some um dust boots on there too. So you don’t get any you know, sand and grit on your actual shock. Uh struts there, so that’s that’s, really good to see all right, um yeah, just a lot of quality parts here, guys with the rather chunky servo saver as well. Okay and even the hinge pins uh, the the actual bracings here for the hinge pins, are all thick alloy as well guys also adjustable turn buckles on the front and the rear they look like they’re for the toe um.
If we look in here, we have a rather thick center drive shaft there connecting the two diffs on the back. We have the wheelie bar guys: okay, so it’s it’s strengthened rather well, with an extra brace in between here um thick drive, shafts for the diff, all metal, diffs and ball bearings. Obviously guys. The c cups are plastic, but we do have metal drive caps out drives for the actual wheel hubs on the bottom. Here it has a thick alloy chassis plate, okay and they’re all counter sunk screws, guys all hex heads as well, not phillips head, so yeah a really good quality truck guys. Even though these uh arms are plastic, they are pretty chunky. You see the thickness of them. They are pretty good quality. Looking uh a arms on the lower and the top, as you can see, they’re pretty thick so should be a pretty durable batch to this one guys um yeah that’s, pretty much it uh that i could show you i mean i haven’t ran it yet i’m, going To charge the battery up as soon as this weather clears i’ll definitely take it out. Now they do state that the electronics are somewhat waterproof, guys they state the motor is waterproof. The esc is also waterproof servo. It does have a 15 kilogram server. I think i mentioned that before 15 kilogram torque servo, that is waterproof the um actual receiver um, even though it’s exposed it’s not in its own little receiver box.
That just came off the sticky tape. It does have a couple of teardrops there. So it’s probably splash proof it might be waterproof um. You know, you’ve got your exposed pins. It is a four channel uh receiver, but who knows that might be waterproof as well um, so yeah guys uh. It should be good to take out in the wet weather. Anyway, where you’re not gon na, really worry about the electronics frying, all right guys so that’s pretty much it guys that’s all. I can really show you um. I will declare it up later on before i take it out. Like i mentioned at the start of the video um, i am going to put some cloth tape because i like to do that with all my rc’s now i’ve been doing it. For the last say, six months, or so maybe even longer, i’ve been putting cloth tape on the shelves and they do help uh make the longevity of your body shells last a long time guys rather than having without any protection. There also makes it a little bit more flexible when you’ve got cloth tape underneath it so uh yeah, guys that’ll, be it for today. Um make sure you check the links below guys, like i said, i’ll be leaving some coupon codes there. There is actually two coupon codes for this truck that i’ve uh actually got from my contact at banggood. One is in effect right now: okay, start on the first of july to the seventh okay, pre sale of the seven and seven uh banggood sales.
So the coupon code, that’s in effect right now from the first of july to the seventh – is a 15 off code. Okay, now there’s a second code that i’m going to put in the description below and in the pin comment of 18 off, and that starts on the 7th to the 10th guys. So if you want a good saving of 18 off, maybe just wait for the 7th of july, guys: okay, because you’re going to get an extra 3 off uh. You know on top of um the coupon code that is available now so, like i said, there’ll be two coupon codes, one the one at the moment at the time this video is 15 off, but after the 7th to the 10th you’ll get a really good saving Of nearly 20 off this one guys – and i believe this one is currently at around ‘5 us, so you can work that out 18 off that you’re going to be saving a good amount of money, all right guys. So thanks very much for watching guys. Just a quick unboxing on this jlb racing, cheetah stay tuned, i’ll be taking this out once the weather cooperates and we have some good days i’ll.
