We’Re going to do our first wpo kit review on the channel. Now, if you’re, a big wpl fan like i am you’ll know that last year they released the c54 series of hard body, shell kits for their c series chassis. Now recently, i saw for sale on places like ebay, banggood and aliexpress, a full c54 crawler truck kit. So not just the hard body, the full shebang, so i thought we’d get one of those on the channel. Have a look at it, see what you get in the box and give you my opinion on whether it’s worth that extra buck and at the end of the video i’m going to reveal my exciting new idea for my next series of videos on the channel, which Will involve wpl kits but, most importantly, will involve you, my viewers and subscribers choosing what happens through the build every step of the way. So if you haven’t subscribed already, please do so anyway. Let’S crack this open and see what we get in the box. So we’ll start with the body that toyota land cruiser lc80 body, Music really detailed bonnet opens. It was difficult to tell from the pictures on the websites the exact color of this, but it is the off white color the same as the hard body. Only kits. Shame. It’S, not white, but anyway most people are going to paint this almost everybody’s going to paint this anyway. So that’s, the body window insert the front under bonnet section now here, you’ve got spare tire.
These are the range of wheels and tires they released. With the same time as the l and the c54 body see the tread there, this is a harder compound tire. They sell a hard compound and a soft compound. This is far too hard really but it’s a spare tire. So it doesn’t really matter and you get your interior cabin section plenty of space for figures, luggage, etc. Music you’ve got your standard body accessories, so snorkel steering wheel, um, roof rails mirrors, you’ve got even got um fantastic little uh adhesive wing mirror sections side, mirror sections. Whatever you want to call them so that’s that and you get your light lenses and decals Music and you’ve got your set of um standards set of bumpers and grille and um dashboard. Then we come on to the competitive edition body parts. The extra ones we’ve got that bigger front bumper, with the light buckets different style of grille, with the double headlights and the rails to protect the front of the body, roof rack with rear ladder and more light buckets. Now we come onto the chassis part, so we’ve got axles with metal gears, metal, rack and pinion gears, which is great. These now come as standard in all their kits. As far as i’m aware, they used to be plastic originally now they’re metal, it was the first upgrade you had to do. Um but yeah great that they’re now included and then we’ve got your all your chassis parts, suspension parts in there you’ve got your 180 motor with gearbox great little gearbox.
That is the servo and leds another parts, your two pre painted chassis rails and screws, and so these are the four tyres you get. These are the original wpl wheels and tires. So these are the really soft compound that you get with the kits they’re ready to runs over harder, one which is far less grippy, so it’s great. That you’ve got these included. These are bright white wheel, as they always have been so slightly different to the body. They look very similar on the internet images so yeah, so four of those with a nice soft compound and, of course, your instructions – Music, Music, Music, so Music, Music, Music, Music, Music, Music. This is called a wee pot. Music do Music, Music, Music, Music, Music, so Music. So, Music, Applause, Music, so Music, so Music, so Music, well guys what’s my opinion. If you’re new to crawling or new to rc cars or if you’re not – and you just want to get into these 1 16 scale wpl trucks, then i definitely recommend getting this kit. It’S great value for money, they’re great fun. You can see on the video that they’re really capable they’ve got lots of nice scale, details and there’s limitless upgrades and mods. You can do to it. So if you’re one of those people, i definitely recommend getting it. But if you’ve already got a c series chassis, and particularly if you’ve already spent out on loads of upgrades and mods for it, then my advice is just stick with that hard body show only kit, i don’t think it’s worth it.
Unless you want to increase the size of your collection or have someone else run a truck with you when you go out crawling just stick with a hard body shell, but there is one thing that if i could change it, it would make me recommend this kit To everybody – and that is if these wheels and tires were included as standard in the kit. As you probably know, these are the ones that came with the c4 came out the same time as a c54 body. Shell and they’re meant to go with this body. They look much better and they solve the problem or the complaint and the biggest complaint about this body in that it sits too hard on the chassis. As you can see, they have a bigger diameter they’re, not any wider and they’re the same compound just as grippy but they’re just that bit bigger, and so they fill the arches more and they look so much better. And if that they were in the kit, i’ll be telling everybody to get this at the moment you have to spend out another 10 or 15 quid to get them if you want them so wpi. If you’re listening, please consider changing the spec of the kit to include those i reckon you sell loads more and lastly, wpl. Please include a proper steering link arm in the kit, the one that comes with it, the ready to run one just doesn’t work and it’s a real shame.
You have to spend out on an on an upgrade part or have to fashion one yourself from spare parts or from other bits just to get the kit to work. Please wpl consider including a new steering link arm in your kits and last but not least, we come on to my exciting new idea for my next series of videos on the channel now i’ve built up a whole load of kits parts, mods upgrades for wpl and What we’re going to do is a stage build so every step of the way you my viewers and subscribers are going to choose what goes on to the truck, so shocks wheels tires body, the final color, you name it you’re, going to choose it by leaving comments Under the videos and then in the next stage, we’ll fit those bits on and move on to the next step and then you’re going to choose it. So if you’re interested in that, then please subscribe to the channel, give it a thumbs up. If you like this video, if you didn’t, leave your comments below i’ll, read them and i’ll do my best to improve the content of the channel and also, if you’ve got any questions again.
