Take this thing out what is up guys? My name is mark santamaria, welcome back to the channel, welcome back to rc vlog, guys we’re. Finalmente, back in the garage it’s been a while since we’ve been in the garage, but today we’re gon na drive a car to compare to that guy. That is the sentinel 4×4. I don’t know if you guys, remember and i’ll put a link in the eye above in one of these corners, where i drove this set in 4×4, and it was hard to drive like the very first time i drove it like the butt end of the car. Would wash out really bad like it wasn’t easy to drive, and i don’t remember slash 4×4 as being that hard to drive. But to be perfectly honest, i never drove. I i’ve only driven one slash 4×4 non lcg and it was really really clapped out. So we bought a brand new, slash, 4×4 and we’re going to see if it drives similar. Maybe it was just me, but i don’t remember a slash washing out that bad, so we’re going to see how it drives today on 3s and just see how, if it’s easy, i’m gon na let evan drive it too q tip to see if he thinks cz, Because when he drove the set in 4×4, it was also hard to drive so it’s still a little wet outside, but the cement’s not wet it’s been raining for like three days so we’re just going to deal with it, but today’s the day.
It’S judgement day is the slash 4×4 as hard to drive as a set in 4×4. Here is the slash 4×4 i bought today. God this thing is so clean. Look, i got the debra stickers on the front. I got the msm stickers on the back. It matches it looks so good, so good and it’s licensed fox that we’re, not gon na run this body on it. We are gon na run that body on it, because we don’t wan na mess this body up, oh it’s, so clean. Este é gon na, be like a display body plus. I got to put some rc body armor on here: um no rc body armor. Here it is brand spanking new. Este é o 4 pole vxl system. You can tell it’s 4 pole when it has the capacitors on the outside and see how these the motor wires, they kind of like have a mesh it’s like a rubbery mesh that’s, how you know it’s the new 4 pole one. This is a brand spanking new. I got to bind it to this remote and we’re going to let her rip we’re going with the old 5000 three cell. This one thing i like about this four by four platform is: i can use these same batteries, these ones that run the revo it’s super nice, because i have a whole bunch of these 5003s. So we ran the sentinel 3s. We should get similar power out of this.
One should be should be interesting. All right guys for this, for this example, for this test run we’re going to turn tsm all the way off, because tsm is not available or anything like that available on the sentence. So it’s got to be fair, so tsm is going to be all the way off and also i forgot to tell you guys. I went into lone star the other day and someone called in and bought me a tsm, a tqi receiver. So i could put in a sentence to see if it fixes it and see if that’s, what solves the problem of it, swaying too much. That was super cool. I i asked for the name the guy who bought it for me, called in bought it over the phone and the person who took the order over the phone didn’t get a name but big shout out to whoever. That is thanks a lot. Let me know in the comments: if you were the guy who bought that for me, don’t be rude and say you were obviously all you guys can about it for me, but big thanks to the guy who bought that for me, but this thing’s almost ready to Go i’m going to recalibrate it tsm is all the way off. I have my multi function. Knob set to break, which is the way i like it and we’re going to let it rip all right, we’re, ready, what’s. One cool thing about these platforms is the two wheel: drive body fits perfectly on the four wheel drive, so i can just use this is the spec slash body? I ran the other day when actually last time i ran on one.
Então, Sim, it’s ready to go. We’Re about to rip it all right, i double check to make sure tsm is off so the way you do it is, if you just turn the car on and do this it’s not going to turn the wheels because well the wheels aren’t spinning so i’m going To turn tsm all the way up, so you can see it on so you see the wheels moving the front wheels moving whenever you can hear it now, when i turn it all the way off, but you have to you actually have to give it some throttle For it to work now, i’m gon na turn all the way off see no more wheel moves, so tsm is off. So this should be a fair, oh, Meu deus, no brake no brake. I have my multi function, knob set to break and it has not a single bit of break oh see, so it also tracks. I don’t think it’s as bad well yeah. It might be. Actually oh car coming Music. I got ta set the trim. OKEY, so so it’s not as bad. You see that how i gave it throttle and it it just – went Music it’s cutting over a little bit, but it’s like i can get on it full throttle. So it is easier to drive. Nwo, while i say that the the breaking loose of the the rear tires or the the back end of the car is non existent, i won’t say that hold on melissa just got here all right, we’re gon na do a couple more runs, see it broke out That time it is raining by the way, so it again it does wash out, but it doesn’t wash out as bad like i can counter steer whoa.
Did you see that it came up on two speed wise? I will say that they’re about the same speed they’re, both super crazy, fast yeah it’s. Definitely to me it is easier. Tsm is off because i’m, giving it full throttle going up and down right there, so there’s a little bit of body roll, but nothing like the scent. So i do think it is a little bit easier to drive. Na minha opinião, i’m gon na. Let evan drive it. We’Re gon na confirm that uh there’s no tsm on yeah no tsm on all right, evan little rip, Music bud Music, so see if it’s easier to drive evan. Para mim, it was like i said i could get on it and not worry about it. Spinning out so that’s with tsm off, we will throw tsm in the sentence and the ground is a little bit wet, so it would actually probably be harder it’s, a little cold and the ground’s a little wet. You think it’d be a little bit harder to drive this car than the uh the scent in these current conditions, but by no means is the back end of the car wash out is bad. It definitely does a little bit um, just not like the scent like the scent. As soon as you get full throttle. It was almost unrecoverable um this one. You can counter steer it and you can drive with a little bit more confidence so interesting.
So it is there it’s not as bad, but definitely easier to drive. What do you think evan? Bem, evan literally just tried to fl god this kid. He literally he tried to. He tried to demo it. He flips it over. He starts coming down the street um, Mas, Sim, you can counter steer it. So whenever you start to lose it a little bit, uh counter steering is possible, but what he just did is he created so much body sway? It was unrecoverable wait for this car to go by and i’ll tell him to rip it full throttle down the street and see if he can control it, because you couldn’t control it with the sentine, which is crazy, Música, all right rip it down the street bud It is fun i’m, não gon. Na lie. I’Ve got some cool plans with this i’m curious to see how it does on the tracks. So evan he’s, he’s, actually spinning it out. Um see he gave it. He gave it a good throttle there. It didn’t spin out. Oh man that’s crazy. So what do you think it’s? Definitely easier, yeah yeah it’s easier. I might even let ethan drive it, but i know for sure he’ll uh he’ll rip it into the curb. So there is one factor that i didn’t bring up. It is possible, see i gave it full throttle and can control it um. It is possible that the reason why it’s, that much more controllable, see that was full throttle.
There is no way with the sentinel you can give give it full throttle like that without it. Spinning out there is one thing that i didn’t bring up, that could be whoa. Ethan go: go um, há, one thing that i uh don’t fall jeez running with a freaking broken arm, um there’s. One thing that i didn’t factor in that could be the reason why it’s a little bit easier to drive is the uh. The slipper clutch could be looser, so i because i’ve been driving traxxas cars for so long. I can kind of tell that the slipper clutch is slipping a little bit. That might be a factor on why it’s so much easier to drive. Além disso, a telltale sign is it’s, não é, not pulling the wheels it’s not pulling the wheels off the ground, which is setting wood. If you gave it enough. That means that the scent and um the scent and slipper slipper clutch – if it has one i’m, pretty sure it does the sentence. Slipper clutch was not loose. It was super tight, but yeah. This is a controllable drive, a lot of power, a lot of fun, not that the scent wasn’t, but it was just a little bit harder to drive and again it could have been the slipper but out of the box, if you’re, just a new guy buying a 4X4 short course this car is going to feel like it’s, easier to drive over the center 4×4 motor’s, not crazy, hot i’m, going to put a fan on it, but yeah there you go guys a stock, slash four wheel, drive vxl, é, crazy, Divertido, guys so the Testing’S not over again, i want to take it to the track we’re also going to bash both of them really hard.
I am going to throw the tsm receiver in the sentinel, 4×4 and i’m also going to turn down the slipper clutch to see. If that helps, because that that might be all that it is but, like i said out of the box, not knowing anything about rc if you go, buy a set in four 4×4 and a slash 4×4 vxl. Na minha opinião. In my humble opinion, because i know everyone gets mad and i don’t want to you know – draw crazy judgment. Na minha opinião, the traxxas 454 vxl is a little bit better driving experience because it’s a little bit easier to drive, and it might be the case that they just have to loosen the slipper but we’re going to get them working.
