, so stay tuned to find out how they get on Music Applause. Então, Music hi welcome to rc kicks okay. Bem, the sun has finally come out in the uk, and the garden has dried out enough that we can blast a few cars around and it’s an excuse to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. So i’ve picked a few cars that have never been around the track before and we’re just gon na run them have some fun see what they’re like to drive around the track and see if they set a reasonable time now, they’re all pretty much stock. The dbx 10 is stock. The wl toys are stock, the javelin is pretty much stock. What motor have i got in that uh it’s a standard brushed motor, so nothing super hot. The only one that’s got brushless is the fake top force evo. Bem, when i say fake, it’s got all the bells and whistles on it pretty much, mas é, not an original one. This is running a brushless, cheap entry level, electronic speed, controller and motor, so it should be the fastest of all of them now they’re, all so different. This is just a bit of fun there’s! Não, you can’t compete one against the other, really, as these are all very different, but it’s just for a laugh, so let’s go put them around the track. What should we start with? I think we’ll start from this end and work our way across so let’s see how good the db x10 is around the track.
Aplausos, uh Music do Music. Então lá vai você. That was the rocket. What did i think drives? OKEY, because suddenly it’s not designed to go out of grass track uh it’s, pretty good the thing that let it down the most is obviously it’s high, so it’s roll over. So it gripped quite well with these tyres on the grass better than i thought, because i thought spikes would be the way to go, but these seem to grip, OKEY, so much so i got rollover. I ran it with the stock battery to get one time, and i also put a 2s lipo in it to get a different time. Just to give you an idea of what you can expect, if you upgrade, because obviously something like this one of the first things you might do is go to a lipo battery. Instead of the standard one being it’s, somente 2 000 milliamps as a stock battery, it gets you going but really you’re, probably looking at about 12 14 minutos de tempo de execução. So obviously, that’s probably going to be a bit annoying unless you’re just doing you’re just a person who wants to drive an rc car for 10 15 minutes once every week or so just for a bit of fun. Then that’s fine. But if you want longer run times, you’re, probably looking at changing the battery now whether you would actually bother going to lipo and then buying a lipo charger. But if you do, you will get a lot more out of this.
I was quite surprised what the times were between the two batteries, so the original time, which is the one i’m going to set on the board because that’s what the battery that come with it, that did it in 9 57.. So that puts it just ahead of the nova fox at 9 57.. There we go stay excellent, but you want to know the time it actually did with the 2s lipo. I have got it here. Let me just get that time for you. It did hit with a 2s lipo that’s, the only modification in 897 that’s faster than the xvo1 907. So i was pretty impressed and i would say, it’s a good upgrade. So if you bought one of these, the upgrade i’d probably go for first would be to go with a proper charger, lose the cheap trickle charger. You can pick them up for 10 20 pound and then get yourself a 2s lipo battery and that will probably bring it alive. Um i looked at the motor temperatures because i was a bit worried at all. Maybe when you go to 2s you’re going to start pushing the motor, but on the grass it was stone cold with the kit battery, but with the 2s lipo driving the whole battery that’s a 4 000 milliamp battery on shortish grass. It was warm to the touch, but i could touch it, which is a really good sign. It means we’re, not cooking it or not, pushing the motor too hard, the stock pinion’s still in it.
I haven’t upgrade upgraded the pinion or anything else, that’s it. So there you go that’s a little bit of an eye opener. Para mim, i was surprised how much perky it was on the 2s. Now the main challenge is it rolls over because of its high centre of gravity so make of it. What you will right, we’re now going to move on to the top force: Aplausos musicais, Música, uh, Música, então a música, so that was the top force evo. Desculpa, i didn’t get quite as much footage. It takes a bit more of my attention to drive this around the track and with these tyres it was very grippy, very responsive something’s, not quite right with the front of this car it’s to do with the diffs i’m, Não tem certeza, seeing like now. There’S no drive at the front, but then sometimes you get drive at the front. Sometimes you don’t so something’s iffy, but it drives well. Além disso. I didn’t really have the front trimmed properly. I had more steering in one direction, the other not sure, so i haven’t really driven this – that much and i’ve never driven it on these tyres either, but being that it was on grass, i thought i’d leave it now. There was one small issue and i broke it. The upright broke, so you know what happens when you push. I pushed it hard and uh yeah it just went. I didn’t hit anything i’m, not quite sure what happened.
I just went around to go around the corner and then it just sort of like limped off a little bit, so it let go, but i can get replacements it’s, not the end of the world i’ll order something this afternoon. Do you want to know what time it did you need to know this time it did it fake top force, evo top force top fourth zebo i mean it has got the carbon chassis so and it’s got the uh shocks. The high caps and it’s got brushless motor in it, and uh it’s got titanium, screws fitted and it’s got the correct, wheels and tires so more towards a evo but uh whatever you want to call it. So i call it the fake top force evo and it did it in 7.8 7.8. This is now the fastest thing around the track. Ever by a massive margin. The k1 aero did it in 8.1, so that’s three tenths of a second faster around a track. That is only seven to eight seconds long lovely to drive if i dial this in properly. Oh, eu não tenho, so yes that’s. What i’m going to do? I just love the conditions today, short grass, very grippy, but didn’t roll. I mean i could get it to roll over, but a lot of the time it just glued. I found later on that, as i was going into the hairpin at the end, backing pushing in reverse, dug in and turned much better, and i managed to save quite a bit of time there, instead of just running on and letting it slow down around the corner.
So uh yeah – i was very impressed with that one. Então 7.8 new record right at the top. Oh push it down, also it’s running brushes as well, so it has lots of punch right next. We move on to the wl toys whatever the number is. I can’t remember zero one. Nine at the end, let’s run this around the track. Now one thing i’m interested about this one is obviously it’s a lot smaller. The track is very technical and very small, so hopefully this will be well suited being that the grass is actually quite dry i’m hoping these tires do grip well, so it could set quite a good time being small and it is quite powerful, so let’s find out Applause, Música, Aplausos, Música, então a música, Aplausos, Música, Aplausos, Música, me, Música! Are you? OKEY? So there you go that’s the wl toys, Um, Dois: Quatro: Zero: Um: nine! What do i think about that? Oh, eu não tenho, my god it’s so fast, insanely, fast and small, so it’s very suited to the track because it’s, a very small track, so yeah very nimble the tires of what led it down uh. If i had spike tires, i think it would be able to grip better, but it did flip over. I had to be a bit careful but it’s so fast with the 550 motor in it and it weighs nothing and then, when you look at how small it is as well nimble, it’s kind of perfect for the track.
So what time did it do? Bem, it did it in 8.13 Sim. This little tiny thing basically is in third place, it’s the third fastest car, and there was probably a bit more in it. It could have possibly snatched second place, but we’re gon na leave it there, because i gave it my best shot. I didn’t quite hook up a perfect lap, but i crashed it a lot and it stood up to it and i actually crashed it properly into the playhouse and it jammed underneath so eight one three in third place, mind bending, so that takes us down to the Last one the kyosho javelin, so what do you reckon it’s gon na? Do i don’t know it’s very heavy and it’s running nimh and a brushed motor, so it’s less power and more heavy, but it’s got good tires. Four wheel drive is very good and it is a proper racer, so let’s find out how fast it goes around the track: Música, Música, hmm, Música, Música, so Music Applause, Music and there we go. We finally got round to the javelin. These tyres are definitely what works best on the book red track. You grip all the time and you can get the power down really easy and it’s. Just a bit more manageable would be even better if it was like dirt and gravel drives reasonably well. Very heavy it’s, a very heavy buggy, the electronics i’ve got in it work, OKEY, but the motor is just not powerful enough to really push this, so it could do with brushless in it really purely because it’s, just so much metal and it’s so heavy.
But it feels very tank like, but i love the look of it it’s gorgeous. So what time did it do? Bem, it did eight point, seven three, which basically means it puts it between the xp01 and just behind the cat, so not too bad. Considering it’s running on a brushed motor, but with more power, it would definitely come alive and be further up the list now. Obviously this is just a bit of fun. You can take any one of these cars and improve them to go around the track faster, but trying to keep them as stock as possible. E então, when i do upgrades, we will run them again and it’s just for fun, it’s very difficult to compare one to the other, as some are on uh 2s lipos. Some are brushed some of brushless but it’s just just to get them out running in the garden.
