So today we have the hbx18859 also known as the waterproof monster truck and we’re, going to be doing a review on it i’m going to be comparing it to my ninety dollar, Zasadzie, a little a little desert truck, which costs twenty thirty dollars less than it and We’Re going to be comparing it to my armor mojave, which is a thousand dollar baja truck and we’re gon na see the differences and similarities between uh between the thousand dollar one and this one and the differences between the ninety dollar one and this one, and i Think what most people are going to be shocked by is the fact that this is built a lot more like the thousand dollar truck than it. Is this this? Tę 90 dollar truck right here, Jestem. Honestly super impressed with it super happy with all the features that it comes with and we’re going to be going through those in a moment here. So let’s start off with the start. The clips, the clips are actually some of the most useful clips um. I think i’ve only seen them on a traxxas slash, Nie, not a slash, sorry a traxxas summit. Zasadzie, they have a little rubber thing right here that you can just pull on and you don’t have to feel like you’re poking your finger to death every single time, you’re trying to take a pin up kind of wish more manufacturers would have these. Tak właściwie, you wouldn’t expect this from a 100 rc truck in case you didn’t know what this is.
Is a hundred dollar ready to run off road uh water resistant truck let’s. Take a look inside first, Okk, let’s see what we’re working with here so i’m gon na bring this up a little bit closer for you guys to see. Zasadzie, we have a motor forgot. How many turns, but quite a lot of turns because it’s, a small one with its own heatsink? Okk, keep that in mind it’s on esc, Czyli, replaceable, its own servo, that’s replaceable, and i don’t think they’re oil filled shocks, but they do have a little bit of oil in the shock caps, Okk, so that’s another thing to keep in mind. Poza tym, you can take a look at the bumpers. It has shock absorbers for the bumpers. Poza tym, it has shock mount towers. Okk, so keep all this in mind. On top of the fact that it has a metal drive, shaft. Okk, you see that moving that’s the drive shaft and it has double arms. Myślę, że to. What they’re called i forget what they’re called, but you can see that they’re double okay for the arms on front and back okay. Więc, keep that in mind, shock towers, Wstrząsy, absorbers for the bumpers, Podwozia, brace right here on top as well that’s, just for added strength, it’s honestly, For 100 Dolców, you can’t go wrong with this there’s, nothing that can that you can say about this – that that’s bad Let’S, look at the suspension back always bounces up a little bit more than the front, as is usual for my armor okay.
So on top of that, this truck also has lights. Okk, working lights, see if i connect this it’s gon na, be my first time connecting it. Oh god, oh and then, where is the power for it? Oh power hold on and off. Więc, look at that working lights for 100 Dolców, W porządku, so let’s compare the bodies side by side, the chassis actually not the butt. 90, Prawie 100 120. Zasadzie, the same price, because this doesn’t come with the charging cable with the charging cable is the same price as this let’s look at the difference. Okk, this has everything enclosed. You cannot change anything if you’re gon na open it up, you’re, probably gon na break it. I don’t know if you’ll ever find parts for it and i don’t know if it’s worth it to even replace anything because let’s be honest, nie ma, no suspension on the front wheels right here. The back wheels have have some springs, nie napełnia się olejem, and they have about three millimeters of ride height. This has about almost two centimeters of ride, height and front, and back suspension filled with oil truck caps. Okk, so all in all i’d say that this one is probably a clear winner, but we’re gon na have a little race after just to see just to see if uh, if this makes it a little faster, it’s a little hint it doesn’t. But now let’s compare this to my thousand dollar mojave, which also is a lot bigger so that that factors into the price we’re gon na take remember, remember the shock towers shock, mount i’m, not shock, mounts shock, absorbers, okay and look at this one shock towers shock Absorbers for the bumpers look at that thousand dollar car hundred dollar car size obviously makes a difference in price, but but the quality is is astounding to put that much effort into this little of a car.
Okk, and just like that car, the arms are not metal. You have to buy them separate if you want metal ones, but the drive shaft is, and so is the middle drive shaft. So literally, just like this car, it has plastic, Ramiona, plastic, double arms. This this is built like a thousand dollar car, just scaled down. Okay for for a smaller size, Dobrze, this cost almost as much as this and it’s built like a two dollar car overall, if you’re looking for a new present for your grandkids, your kids, they like rc cars, you’re low on money, it’s their first one they’re young. Whatever it is, this is one of the best ones to start with, probably the best one. Moim zdaniem, i haven’t seen anything like it. It is hobby grade, meaning everything is replaceable. Jest to, not uh. It’S not like this one, where you can’t, replace anything. Even the wheels don’t come off. Okk, wheels come off, everything comes off, you can replace every single thing and you can upgrade it there’s. Also upgradable parts. On top of the little lights, the remote okay, the remote comes here with the little steering wheel, looks cool there’s. Your steering trim right here. So if your car turns a little bit too much left or a little bit too much right, you turn it out. The other way, another thing it has is reverse steering which i need personally, because i i drive like this, so my brain kind of is wired backwards.
When i steer that’s how i drive my thousand dollar car, the little one, the little ninety dollar, one this one, i can’t, because it doesn’t have any reverse feature on it, just steering trim so that that alone is again. Another nice feature that they included on this car, który jest, i guess the main point is that they put a lot of thought and effort into this compared to any other rc card that you’re gon na get for a hundred bucks and the performance of it. You guys are gon na see we’re gon na we’re gon na, take it out for a drive after and we’re gon na, compare it to this 90 dollar one and i don’t think it’s going to be anywhere near, at least from the other videos i’ve seen this Thing is something else wow that thing’s even going but it’s on slow speed right now. Oh oh gosh stock! Here let me let’s see if i can go help. You let’s put it on normal speed. Did it help no, no Laughter? The only way that one’s winning two one go Laughter are you almost there bro. You think you can flip me over there, you no Music. Three two one go yo. It kept up for a little bit, they yeah, and then i let off too, because it was starting to swerve into the tires yeah three two one go, because it does not suck for like a meter or two which is like still impressive.
Three two one go. I think i saved it yeah you did, i put it in reverse. How did i even flip dude, i didn’t even know i watched you for a split. Drugi, i seen you coming one or two things that i forgot number one is the battery tray it’s. Actually very well done, as you can tell it’s adjustable to fit different battery sizes um in this truck. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend getting different ones, but this is very useful because it’s a design that i’ve only seen in my thousand dollar truck, i have other rc cars. None of them have this, and if sometimes the batteries that you get are just a little bit taller than the space that they fit in, because it’s not not adjustable with a little velcro like this. This is just another convenience that again somebody had to think about this and put it in it’s. Just another thing that i appreciate about this car it’s it’s insane. How many features it has that you don’t, find on lower end rc cars and one of the last things is. It also comes with four free body pins, which again a lot of rc cars that cost a lot more don’t.
