I wonder where we got that vxl. I wonder where we got that all right, so we took off the shell um. I received this actually broken and uh went ahead and did some ghetto repairs, uh, which consisted of replacing the esc. Someone burnt that out. I had a choice. I could either wait a few months to try to get an original s, esc that came with this or i would get one that fits uh. A number of models of between the fy 10, i think maybe 11 12, 13. Eu sou., not sure um i’ll push the link to what i bought. No entanto, i did have to make a modification to it. I had to order a little switch because it did not come with a switch. The the one that it originally had came with the switch this one did not, so i had to rig that up as a result, uh because of the different esc, é, not waterproof. I don’t see too many videos on this truck. I think it uh. It does look pretty cool. I think it’s got a ‘0 motor uh with a heat sink in there. You can see these do not appear to be oil filled, but they you can see it’s rather springy. Sim, you’ve got some balance going on, so not oil filled, but it is a pretty cool. Looking vehicle it’s got some led lights and everything – and you also have another port to add in some extra leds on the back, de modo que é, muito legal.
So with everything down and everything, and once i get this pinned up i’m gon na go ahead and do a speed run uh. So i got 13.8 miles an hour which isn’t fantastic but it’s, not the slowest thing i’ve driven either. It does seem to speed off pretty fast, but it never reaches a a decent high speed. It’S got some horrible range horrible range, so we’re going to go ahead and demonstrate that now, for you guys so here we are so right. There cuts off now i’m. Getting a little bit of a signal that’s it like that’s all i got i’m, really a horrible judge of distance, but um it’s really not good range at all. I’Ve seen some people do a modification to these, which i’ll probably do where you open it up and basically just take the wire the antenna and hang it outside of the remote. Então, if that’s possible to do with this controller, i will do that because otherwise, the thing and i’m just having fun with it um, Eu acho, does look pretty cool. All right so looks like a ripoff e revo, É claro, it’s running on a barrier. So i can’t get that uh. That nose sits, that nose sits above the in front of the wheel and the wheels so because of that, É claro, you’ve got some uh it’s not going to be able to get the traction that it needs. Eu vou., try one more time coming at maybe an angle, no all right, so can’t get over it Applause, all right Applause.
It just does not happen that sucks all right, Esperar, it’s going in reverse better than it does forward. Wow wow i’m gon na do that again. In reverse, Wow, OKEY, vamos, take it up this hill, all right so going forward it just doesn’t. Have it let’s see if it can do it in reverse? Oh my god yeah, so pretty fun. If you want to drive in reverse yeah, my driving and reverse skills need work all right, so it can climb hills in reverse that sucks all right out of curiosity let’s go in reverse. I need to work on that. I mean i can’t say that it’s not kind of fun um. I literally paid like eight bucks for this thing so i’m not going to complain, but i feel pretty bad if i spend 100 bucks on this thing, Está bem, some gravel, loose, gravel Applause, so Music i’ve just been out here, driving it sparingly really for the last Uh, probably eight minutes or so and uh batteries are already toast. Not only is it pretty underpowered but it definitely eats through batteries. The controller itself, i can’t, say anything really bad about it: there’s some foam on the wheel and then that’s that’s about it on this model uh. Então, novamente, Eu não. Eu não, really recommend this.
