Oh não. What happened this is the armor creighton, exp, 8s and exp means extreme bash. So in this video we’re gon na unbox it put it together and then extreme bash it do you have a job. You hate imagine if you could make more money from the comfort of your own home. That was my dream and it became a reality once i started. Selling on ebay and i’ve now taught hundreds of people, my secrets, so just check out the results here from some of my students. Então, if you’re sick of that 90 Ou 5 – and you want to make more money than a doctor from the comfort of your own home, then click on the link down below and i’ll show you how. Então, for the past few years now the traxxas x maxx has been the ultimate large scale. Rc basher a few companies have tried to take it down, but nobody has yet really managed to succeed. So the original armor crate and 8 s was a good contender, but it still didn’t come anywhere near as close to the x max when it came to durability and we put a whole load of modifications and upgrade onto this truck to try and make it stronger Than the x maxx and now the exp edition comes with a whole load of upgrades out of the box. Então, with a bit of luck, it’s going to be an absolute tank right out of the box, waffle, waffle, waffle, we’ll have a look to see what’s in there a little bit later.
Música. Oh guys, check it out. It looks absolutely epic Music and look at the size of it it’s a beast so upgrades over the original one. What i can see so far is b for your shock shafts, which was a big problem on the original one. You’Ve done big jumps. You used to bend them, thicker shafts, hopefully solved it. We’Ve got front and rear sway bars straight away. I can see guys we got a thicker chassis. This one has made a 70 75, the original chassis on the first one. We bent it on the first ever jump, but this one being thicker and made out of 70 75 should hopefully make it bulletproof. We have a metal, chassis, brace now an extreme bash bumper. What else we got bigger wheels and a heavy duty survey saver, but you’ve probably noticed there’s no electrics in there, and that to me is a good thing, because then you can choose what you want to put in there on the original one. The electrics were okay, but the servo kind of died early on to actually upgrade it. The motor was a little bit underwhelming for the size of the truck, so we had to upgrade it, but in my opinion, it’s a lot better to get it like this with nothing in it. Then you can choose what you want to put in there yourself. So one massive weak spot that the original one had was a suspension arm and although these ones on the new one look exactly the same, hopefully they’ve used some better plastic.
That feels lovely. Oh look. I just noticed we got beef, your turn buckles as well front and rear. So in the box you get all this stuff here and then here’s the stuff that you’ve got to supply yourself. Então eu sou, going to be using my dumbo radio max 5 Esc 1180 kv tp motor check out the size of this, and this 78 kg agf servo guys. This servo looks like an absolute beast: it’s full metal case, full metal gears check out the amount of torque it’s got, and if this is any good in there, then i may well put four of them into the laminator guys just check out the thickness of that Chassis, i really think we’re gon na have a tough time, bending that five millimeters thick that makes it even thicker than the m2c1. Oh, eu não tenho, i can’t wait to try it out all right enough. Muffler let’s get benchy Music. So the reason we changed the spur gear is to change the gearing we’re running. Quite a fairly low kv, motor and lower kv motors have got less rpm, but a lot more torque. So we need to gear it accordingly and i’m, just guessing here. So hopefully it’s going to be a good guess. If not we’ll have to change the gearing later man that tp motor’s got some compression. So next we’ve got to install the servo so i’ve just plugged. It into the receiver i’ve set my steering trim to zero and next we’ve got to install the servo saver.
This little line here just needs to be slightly off center. Just like the instructions. Oh guys, we’ve got a slight problem. The thread on this agf servo is something different. I’Ve got no idea what it is, but the screw that comes with the armor. It doesn’t thread into there and the next size up is m4 and that doesn’t fit, and it comes with this little screw here, which is the right thread but it’s too short. We need to screw that long, but we do have a power hd servo and the stock armor screw does screw to the top of it. So we’re gon na have to run with this servo, not quite as powerful as that one, but i will save this for a different project, so i’ve just soldered up all the motor wires we’ve just put the connectors on so next we’ve got ta mount down the Esc now m2c do make a plate, so we can bolt it in, but i haven’t got a spare one so on this car we’re just gon na stick it down, and for that i like to use this stuff here there we go ready to rip the live Pros i’m going to be using are these trends here, i’m gon na put a link down below we can get the car from the batteries the speed controller, the motor and everything else on this build link to all of that lot down below. One thing that i do do is i cut this piece here off of the battery straps.
Every time you change your batteries, you’ve got to thread it in and there’s a massive pane in the back cut that bit off. It just makes it so much easier. Putting the batteries on all right look see what’s in here. Oh yes needed that new steering arms for the lmt. Oh, isso é, going to go! Meu Deus! Carpet’S got it again. Está bem, let’s go out and give it a rip. Nothing all right! Aqui! We are on location, put a little bit of sugar and drywall tape on the inside. Oh i got claire in the house. Got me row in the house. Where’S him hey all right. We will see that didn’t work. Oh ian’s, creighton’s, looking fresh there we go that’s. Looking cool, oh new basketball on there as well: oh isso é, gon na go hey doggy, oh she’s, lively Applause, that’s right, Eu sou, filming i’m, not being a knob. Oh não! Look over there it’s an apocalypse! Oh footage, and i saw what it’s all right look. We’Ve got! Skid plates – Meu Deus, that’s mad. Ah man, this has got some power, probably not enough to sell fire. Meu Deus. What footage get for my cine yay, Está bem, Pronto, steady, go completely smoked, Música, Laughter, Música! Do you know what i took off there and it landed no that’s where it landed, it landed there or was it there, Música, Música, just oh nice? This is a base, guys guys.
I think this has got to be one of my favorite rc’s at the moment. Olhe para ele., it goes everywhere. Oh it stopped. O que aconteceu? Footage. Oh footage. Maybe it’s got too hot let’s, have a look check out the temperatures so far, guys it’s a tank. Meu Deus,, that motor’s hot, i think we’re over geared. We let it cool down and we’ll whip it again, Ei. What are you reckoning? Oh that sounds like it broke. How hot the motor is. Oh guys, look just having a quick little inspection over it all rear arm. Look it’s already got a big crack in there. Então é, probably gon na need some rpm arms Music. Oh takes it oh it’s, not sounding too healthy. Oh, eu não tenho, i think we killed it. Electric is sounding coggy. Oh it’s done oh no game over. It did well. We laughed you kept it come on. Show us called it: uh the chassis, doesn’t look straight anymore, the back end, Oh sim, it’s gone up, got here, yeah here it there and there baby. Oh, eu não tenho, my tough baby bash bar time, kev it’s, all your fault! You got ta, learn how to land it properly. I don’t know guys, i think i landed it pretty good. I mean i put every jump in the video overall. I am very impressed with it, but i think we’re gon na need a set of rpm arms and we’re gon na have to do something with a chassis.
Então, although it is made out of 7075, there are different grades of aluminium. Someone says it’s like t6 and although load of other stuff, so maybe they’re using like a lesser grade, we put a straight edge on there. Look so we’re touching there in the center and look that’s. How far spent on the back and then coming on the front. It’S about the same there too so definitely disappointed on the chassis. Sim, we did bash it hard, but it is branded extreme bash and i didn’t really do any bad landing. So i don’t know: what do you reckon guys? Is it acceptable or is it not acceptable? Let me know in the comments: is it better than the x maxx guys it’s a completely different weapon? I absolutely love this car. It is one of my favorite rc cars that i’ve got now. It handles a lot better than the x maxx. When was blasting it around in that bmx track pit, i could really run it on the ragged edge and it was very stable. The x max would have fallen over like multiple times, but the x max has got a self right button and the x max also can bash a lot harder. So it kind of depends what you want. I love them both and i say, get them both there’s going to be a link down below where you can get this car from where you can get like the motor, the esc and all that kebab and we’re gon na upgrade it and we’re gon na fix It and we’re gon na bring it out again in another video and give it another extreme bash, so subscribe and smash the bell.
So you don’t miss it, and we also got ta see why this motor system failed. We’Ll have a look at that in a different video. Oh look guys. One of these light poles died. I think that is why the creighton started behaving funny.
