We got a brand new car on the channel, the armand notorious 6s blx. This is the v5 version which got released, i think about three or four months ago. So a little late to the party but i’ve been kind of on this stunt truck kick the last few months, testing out the techno mt410, the team karate dementor uh even messing around with the kaiju, so i thought i’d pick up the granddaddy of them all. Really the og stunt truck the armor notorious, which is basically the twin brother of the outcast. If you’re not familiar they’re, pretty much the same vehicle just a different body, i do like the outcast styling a little better, but armas hasn’t released a v5 outcast. So i got tired of wearing and figured i’d pick. One of these up and uh super excited about taking a look at this, so they did make some changes for the v5 version. This is new for 2021 or actually end of 2020 and uh pretty much. What they did was take the exp, which i have a korean exp, and they took a lot of the modifications and upgrades for from the exp and threw them onto the v5 here. So um new electronics, they got new servo, a new esc new motor, although i think they’re, pretty closely related to the old uh systems. Just got the new spectrum firmware branding and the new spectrum smart system. The new receiver box is a little bit bigger than before.
The new radio, É claro, the uh slt3 great radio, big fan of that and then also the slt and dsmr compatible sr 315. That is fantastic because you can bind this with either the slt3 or, if you have a dsmr radio like i do. I have a dx5c i’m just going to run that and bind that directly did update the shock tower so a little more narrow. I think the shocks in the rear are also slightly uh longer than before so i’ve, actually compared the v5 and the exp shocks and the xps are, you know a few millimeters longer, so they did redesign them. A little bit did change the rod ends on that. The new arms from the exp so they’re a little bit beefier a little more material. They got kind of a safety thing where it’s got basically an e clip on the motor. So your opinion doesn’t just fly off if it loosens by itself a little bit changes to the gears uh. Basically on the center dryer shafts um, they got the real steel body. I picked up the black one, so um it’s got kind of a matte black finish, but you can uh basically, as it wears down it kind of reveals the silver paint underneath so yeah, muito legal. Looking little truck so i’m going to cut the seals and take everything in the box and uh we’ll take a look: OKEY, Lá, you have it uh. This thing is a beauty really stunning vehicle in person, the matte black looks awesome all the stickers and stuff.
It looks fantastic it’s got the back flip wheels, which i do like a little bit better than the copper heads that come on the crane, so yeah awesome little truck. I will go through the materials. Real quick comes with like a little speed chart or a little rating on what types of batteries and stuff to get uh comes with some new shims. I don’t think these are the exp uh diff, so i think they’re the v4 disc still, but they do provide some shims. So you can shim your discs a little bit better if you, if they’re a little too loose, uh really nice tools, including like an all metal, uh, 17 Milímetro, Hex, chave, so or t style, wrench awesome bunch of allen keys a little mini cross wrench as well. Um some other little body clips and pistons and stuff. If you want to tune your vehicle a little bit more, Eu suponho, if you’re running different bodies, maybe as well and then the manual stickers in a high speed, pinion gear, so uh yeah, the manuals on these things are pretty awesome. I think they’re a universal manual for all the cx 6s vehicles, but yeah awesome to get that included in the box and then the slt3 radio i’m. A huge fan of this radio. Eu acho que é, the best rtr radio that comes out of the box, nice foam wheel trigger feels really good 2.4 gigahertz, no external antenna. I think it’s got a third channel as well.
Four double a’s, not included, so you will have to supply that. But the big thing it has all the steering and throttle trim steering dual rate as well as endpoint adjustment. Although you will have to look that up online or i do have a video on how to set the end points, which is definitely something you want to do with any brand new rc car, even an rtr, you do want to set your endpoints. If that is provided on your radio, so here’s the vehicle, like i mentioned, Incrível, looking uh body will pull off the body clips real, Rápido, four body clips all tethered. These tethers tend to break, but you know it’s nice to have something included. A little roll bar there on top um stickers on the bottom, including the little just don’t bash blast, decal hard to see on black but there’s the truck itself. So all new electronics. I haven’t ran these before, but the firmware system – 150 amp esc it’s got the included like four capacitor pack on the battery wires, uh ic5 connectors of course. So this is a smart system – Eu sou, probably just going to run one 6s or 1 4s. I don’t need all these extra connectors so probably have to pop those off we’ll, see but uh yeah nice to see they actually include that now with uh also a loop back. So if you only want to run one battery, you can the gigantic whiz.
Eu acho que é, Um 40 Por 74 can motor spectrum branded a really nice wiring. Everything looks super clean, beefy, drivetrain yeah. The battery has a lot of accommodation for different sizes, all aluminum shocks, including aluminum, shock caps, the damping and spring rates. On these things, i find to be really really good, as opposed to some of the other brands out there um the suspension tuning. They tend to get really really good on the armors that’s, something i find that is better than most rtrs arma comes from team durango, which was a race brand i’m sure some of the engineers there come from team durango and they know how to set up a Car a suspension feels really nice. It does have the long upper chassis brace tower to tower so that’s cool uh wing is a little on the small side. Huh smaller than the creighton wing it’s got the big wheelie bar in the back. So this is a stunt truck really intended to do backflips front flips, basically just send it up in the air and then hope you land it um big, shout out also to thomas p, who i think came off the concept of the outcast in its twin brother, Notorious he basically took like a. I think it was like a typhon chassis uh, which is like an a scale, buggy chassis and then mounted all the triggy arms and stuff um to build a stun truck. So you got the big tires to do a lot of rotations in the air.
You got the short chassis, so you can whip it and spin it a lot quicker and then uh yeah. You put the wing on there on the back, so still kind of had that typhon look, but with the giant, wheels giant body and i think he’s, the guy who actually invented the stun trick class, so it’s just kind of grown and grown and now even other Brands, like team corelli, are coming out with their own versions of the stunt track. The techno mt410, like i mentioned, é, basically a stunt track. It’S the same thing: it’s got the buggy chassis with the uh trucky style arms and wheels so it’s, pretty cool to see kind of a minimalist bumper here in the front of the little notorious license plate there on the front, so uh yeah. If you land this thing, it doesn’t have a giant bumper there to protect you. You basically want to make sure you land the wheels. You know right side down because there’s nothing in there that’s going to take the impact so yeah that’s, pretty much unboxing of the notorious not a whole lot more to see i’m going to be definitely drying. This testing this, comparing it with other vehicles that i already own and seeing how it drives in relation to those guys and yeah. So super excited about this.
