I had a great time testing the arm of vortex 4×4. I actually took it to two locations. I took it to the bmx track and i took it to rc madness in enfield connecticut to drive it on the a scale track check out the action all right, it’s time for some bmx track fun with the vortex i’ve already been driving this truck on 2s I’Ve got a 3s spectrum pack in there now it’s just time to go. Wild it’s been so much fun driving this truck here it handles so well i mean i like the granite guys, but this thing is so butter smooth plenty of power on top, ale nie ma. Three s pack: this is the first time i’m driving on 3s. I got to figure out the throttle really quick on it, but man i can put this truck anywhere. I want to all right watch this rip. Tak, you see the tires grow all right time to get serious roll over this one, nice and smooth yeah overshot it pulled out on throttle. You know what i’ve been driving this thing for the close up action shots. I crashed it a few times and, and i think armature really just changed their name to tank top. I mean this thing is just built like a Music Applause tank me, Zagranicznych, W porządku, Jestem, gon na. Do this big step up double we get a little practice running. Pierwszym, get a feel for this jump.
W porządku, it’s gon na come right at us and whoa yeah just cleared it overshot the landing plenty of power i rolled on the throttle. Little at the end, i think we just gave those screws on the spoiler a workout, so all right, i’m searching up jumps here this one’s easier to see big, triple jump whoa that landed like butter. Oh man, plenty of power all the time with this truck nice at the bottom of the landing. There just settles right in Music, all right last jump here. I, like this rhythm section in the back coming off this berm crash, tested all right, let’s see if we can hit this six pack again, it’s a lot of throttle. Work move yeah, oh just case the last one and flipped it that was close, it’s a blast. You just want to drive this thing more and more and that pink and purple bodies is awesome. So all right i got ta, i got ta, get it again. Let’S go yeah yeah! I never did awesome. The vortex is really just impressing me: Muzyki, Zagranicznych, Muzyki, Muzyki, Muzyki, więc Muzyka, Muzyki, Muzyki, Muzyki. I just couldn’t get enough of this truck. Pierwotnie, i was gon na drive it at the bmx track. Show you guys some cool action footage talk during the performance and wrap it up with my final thoughts, but when i got home i needed to show you guys some more. I had to drive this truck some more, so i took it up to rc madness in enfield, connecticut and drove it on their a scale off road track and had even more fun with it there.
This truck is incredible. I had an awesome time driving it and i know it’s kind of like the arma granite, but i don’t know these changes have really created an all new beast here. This truck handles so well, it’s got so much power and i mean it’s almost unstoppable. I was just really railing on this thing and it was taking all of the abuse now over there at the bmx track. I mean this truck just floats over the jumps plenty of power on tap. So if you have to rip out of a nosedive, it will do that. I mean when it goes through corners it’s fast. It feels tight, to jest, just a great drive overall it’s it’s, almost like driving a performance, truckee uh, you know obviously it’s a stadium truck, but i mean it’s just got that performance feel where you know you can push this truck even more and really not worry about It because it’s built like a tank. I was really beating on this thing. It was cartwheeling uh. I landed just body down on a jump case of the landing of a jump it just bounced right back up kept on going. I was really impressed with everything that it went through now. I think you can tell i’m really excited about it. I need to get back to the handling of it. I mean just soaks up the bumps and jumps launching it off. The big jumps is easy. The power is just insane the few little tweaks that they they did to this with the spectrum system, the gearing on there uh the rollout, i guess, with the tires and everything it’s just got killer punch to it.
The top speed is insane and i did go and order myself a new gps, speed meter. I know that’s been lacking here on the channel. I can’t find my old one so that’s on the way. Maybe i’ll get to speed testing this at some point, but again at the bmx track. Uh i mean just top notch performance just killer, and then i took it to the track and you know what, after driving this thing on a race track, i think they should have a class for four wheel drive stadium trucks. I mean this thing was awesome on the track. I was ripping down the straightaway at rc man, to jest, just ripping this thing through the corner and it was under full control. Dean barry was there with me, my friend, bert perry was there and they were just standing there in awe, because this thing was handling so well, and i mean it just floats over the jumps landing on the backside was easy. Going through corners was a little wide. I mean these aren’t exactly racing tires uh, but they were doing pretty well on the hardpacked surface of madness, there’s a little. You know looser on the top, but this thing did fairly well through the tight corners, and maybe you can bump up the steering performance a bit more with an aftermarket spectrum servo, but uh for just bashing around everything on this truck is on point and another thing. I really like that i got to tell you guys about: is the spectrum radio system, the smart system that’s in here just seeing the battery voltage drop down on the included radio? So i knew when this thing was going to die and – and i wanted to know – because i was just having so much fun with it – i wanted to drive it some more.
I needed to have some more packs ready, but just being able to see that telemetry stuff on the radio and knowing that i could spend expand later on down the road with the aftermarket module and the dashboard system will be a lot of fun. To add. Later. On to this truck too, and actually i have those parts, so if you want to see uh how to install the module in here with the deck and use the dashboard app. Let me know about that in the comments section as well, but they’re at rc madness. It was awesome and then to change things up. I ran the track backwards, so i was hitting the jumps backwards that were meant to just go one direction. So when i went off those jumps, i was doing backflips off of the jumps landing. It was just a whole new level of fun. Armor really nailed it with the vortex 4×4. If you’re looking at this truck seriously to pick it up for this summer’s off road fun, i highly recommend it. It was an absolute blast to drive now there’s. Just a few little issues that i do want to mention, one of them being the wing there’s this weird little bulge in the back. I think the fitment to the body could have been a little bit better from the factory uh, the clicking from the gear train. I haven’t quite figured out what that is. Yet i took the motor out and it seems like the pinion spur mesh is a little bit tight from the factory, maybe that’s something you want to check, but i don’t think it’s a clicking issue.
If i ever find out what that is, i will pin a comment down in the comment section and let you know and the wheels wobble just a little bit. After all, the bashing i mean – maybe i’m just nitpicking here, but i do want to share everything that i see on this truck with you guys, ale poza tym, just a cool truck all right, if you haven’t done so yet.
