This is doug body projects here with an unboxing, an initial review of the wltoys104001. What i’m going to do today is do an initial unboxing, see what’s inside the package. I’Ll give my initial thoughts. Do a speed run and give my overall impressions so let’s go ahead and do this in boxing so for background information i purchased this out of pocket through maker fire. I participated in a pre order sale, so i got this under 140 as of may first. I believe this vehicle is going for around 150 Um. They also mail this with just bubble, wrap and circle pack simple packaging, Maar, zoals je zien, it’s very slight damage to the box itself. The vehicle should be fine inside. So first look at this it’s 45. Kilometers per hour it’s a 2.4 gigahertz ready to run four wheel drive. It suggests this is 14 and up once again they come with the mako fire stickers. So let’s go ahead and take a look around in the box. Let’S go take a look here and some information on the side of the box. Here it says: it’s waterproof has adjustable shocks, optional, Metalen, spur gears and ball bearings i’m, not going to test the waterproof of this vehicle, but my six year old may so we’ll we’ll see and hopefully he’ll survive. Aan de andere kant, some warning information in english and some other languages for those who are interested then moving along here. Turning this around you’ll have information regarding the batteries.
Het is. 7.4 Volt. 2200 milliamp. It only comes with one battery. So if you’re wondering how many battery packs it comes with, it comes with one so let’s go ahead and remove the top of this box. The first thing you’ll notice, is the manual within this plastic bag and within the same bag, is the rear, spoiler. The battery charger and additional tools, so toys put some front suspension parts in this esd bag. Not quite sure why, if you guys do please put in the comment section, you know just curious about that. So moving some of these uh pieces that kind of hold the rc in this place within the box now i’m getting to the rc or the remote itself. So this is my first wl toy, so it is the first time holding their remote. What i did notice is the black chrome center with the foam outside which, which is nice to the feel. I also noticed the steering and throttle trim to the front. It looks good so i’m going to put that down. The car has a really good weight. I really like the the combination of the metal and plastic. I like the by design the red wine blue. Like i said before, i also like the white wheels kind of you know all ties in together, even with the red red wretch, the red shock towers and the silver accents with the gold uh shock posts really kind of ties it all together.
So what i’m going to do i’m, actually going to put this vehicle down i’m going to move to a different table and just kind of look uh in detail of what comes inside the box? The first thing in the box is the manual uh. Everyone kind of skips, through the regular jargon in the beginning and kind of goes to the end and that’s where the parts breakdown list is located. The descriptions are are well placed and the part numbers are also included very helpful, OK, putting the mail to the side. The next thing we want to take a look at is like a parts bag, so some of the parts included helps mount the rear explorer to the vehicle. So the next thing we want to take a look at is a battery charger, so this one’s a usb style type of battery charger. I never really dealt with this uh before, but i think it’s going to become helpful, especially for those on the go. You just have to connect this usb cell adapter into like a wall adapter or maybe even a car cigarette lighter. Once again, dit is een 2200 milliamp battery pack. It only has one as a t cell connector. Then you have your traditional balance: port moving along some additional tools. Here we have one tool to remove the wheels and a phillips style type of screwdriver and then here’s additional part. Once again, this is the esd bag, and this is actually some front suspension parts that are housed in this esd bag.
Like i mentioned earlier in the video i have, i really don’t have any clue why wltoys put this in this bag, but if you guys do know, please put it in the comments. Section i’m, just very curious, so here’s me removing it from the bag um. It has no metal so i’m, not quite sure why it’s an esd bag rounding off the parts is a rear spoiler with the same color theme, Echter, on the rear side, it’s all silver for those who are just curious, then once again it’s the maker fire stickers That come along in the box, so take a look in front of the vehicle. The anodized red shocks with the bronze color shock towers, really make it kind of pop, not quite sure if you can see here, but just three mounting positions. It comes mounted in the middle position. It does also come with oil within the shocks. So here’s me time, testing it out. Dan, taking a look from the top to the bottom, um you’ll notice that you’re you’re able to adjust the tail and toe out with the steering linkages being adjustable pivoting onto the side view you can see the ecu plus a fan. Combination on the top is a firewire servo you’ll notice that the steering components is a mixture between metal and plastic. Ik denk dat het., a good combination. It does look good, especially you’ll notice, on the steering. Linkage on the bottom is red. The top portion has a metal bronze to it.
Then right coming underneath the steering linkage is the metal dog bone. Then beneath that is a aluminum piece that actually uh holds the chassis together or more make it more rigid, here’s a rear version of it and you’ll notice that the center aluminum plate goes all the way across. Once again, the metal dog bones on the right hand screen is a 550 brush motor, then the same suspension components at the rear flipping this vehicle over the one thing, je zult merken, allereerst, is a abundance of screws holding a lot of parts together. Ook, just the actual suspension components are kind of thick plastic which is kind of nice, but also is the metal plate that goes from front to rear rear front. Depending on you look at it, this thing adds you know: nice rigidity to the chassis, but also protection, especially like over rough terrain, so let’s go ahead and do the speed test portion of this review. So i zeroed out my gps gon na take off here. I needed to do slight uh steering adjustments. It was kind of veering to the left a little bit after after i adjusted it. It went through so there’s me taking off, come back around again, no no issues with the steering and one more time, let’s see if uh it will get a good speed test here so bringing the vehicle in. Ik heb het 24.6 mijlen per uur, Bijna 25. I guess you can see if i have you round it off, i want to go ahead and just uh take it off.
We want to make sure it’s got a good speed once again, holding true straight pulling it back in see if there’s any difference. Nope, still at 24.6 mijlen per uur, 98 will reach 25 mijlen per uur, went ahead and just started bashing. This thing around so sit back, relax and enjoy Music Applause, Muziek Applaus, Applaus, Muziek, dus Muziek. So going with the pros and cons of this vehicle pros, a good combination of metal and plastic, especially at this price point 150 Dollars. I do like the ability to adjust your toe and toe out in front and your in your camber at the rear. I also like the mounting points for the shocks, the shocks also plus for being anodized red and a sharp shock post to be kind of like that bronze gold color. I also like the body, the red wine, Blauwe, really kind of stands out and the stagger seismic of the front and rear wheels kind of gives that that kind of expensive type of look, the negatives it has to be that 550 motor. It doesn’t really push this too far, as you could tell earlier in the video 24.6 is not too fast, but still quick enough to enjoy so um. I just can’t wait to rip this around and if you have any questions, please post it in the comments.
