com and today we’re going to be taking a look at the brand new wpl c24 1. This is one of their newest 1, 16th skill. Four wheel drive off road scale trucks. Now, typically, i don’t review a lot of the lesser expensive rc’s. I typically stick with hobby grade, but this one kind of appealed to me, mostly because of the early 80s toyota pickup body, that’s mounted on top of this c24 1 chassis in this video we’ll, be taking a look at exactly what comes inside of the box. We’Re going to take this thing for a spin out on some rocks and finally give you my overall thoughts of this truck, but wait there’s more we’re going to be giving away one of these trucks here on youtube down in the comments section so stay tuned. For that, i’ll have some details down in the video description, but later in this video i’ll tell you exactly how you can win this thing here directly on youtube. Now, one big mistake i made was the model number c24. I was under the impression it was a 124 scale for my mini shootout, but considering this is a 1 16 skill. It is slightly bigger than the 124 skills i’ve been reviewing and i’m the first to admit that there are a lot of mistakes, kind of on the box, art here and also in the owner’s manual and i’m, going to happily point those things out here in this Video starting with four channel they’re claiming forward, is one channel.
Reverse. Is a channel left and right as a channel and forward light as a channel other funny things they do have high powered omni bearing control system full function. It can go all six ways. 1. 16 series: it does have shock absorbers with some kind of leaf spring right there, and it has deploy charger 7.4 volt battery. Now this is a full rtr. You just have to supply two double a batteries for the included remote. This video is brought to you by the ridge wallet now i’ve had my ridge wallet for over six months now, and i couldn’t be happier it has all the looks and the function i expect from a wallet in 2020.. This thing is huge, it’s, so slim and streamlined. I now wear it in my front pocket, so no more lopsided sitting filing cabinet under half of your ass. Although each ridge wallet can hold up to 12 cards, i’ve downsized the amount of cards, i carry down to six, keeping the entire wallet down to 12 millimeters in width, even thinner than some of my knives balancing out my knives, i decided to add a new ridge Wallet to my edc, lineup, the stonewash titanium, the look and feel of the titanium is amazing. With its weathered look, i opted for the money clip on this version and i used the clip to hold it in my pocket when, when there’s a handy link in the video description, along with the discount code, to make the decision easy, you know what is better Without this big wallet, it’s more comfortable before we get to the start of the show, the c24 back there let’s go over some supplement items that came inside the box, starting with one sheet of paper for their owner’s manual, a small sheet of decals for the body.
A usb to balance board charger, a very small lipo battery. You do get a tiny phillips driver, some spare parts more on that a little bit later and finally, one of the smallest remotes i’ve ever seen in an rc just to compare sizes of remotes, a standard, rtr radio right here, the spectrum and compared to the wpl Remote right here on the side, you can definitely see the smallness of this radio. It does have all the functionality that you would want for an rtr. Of course it has a wheel, it does have a trigger up here on off button and you can just control the steering trim that’s about it. It is 2.4 gigahertz and it does take two double a batteries and you do have to supply yourself and finally, the wpl c24. 24. 1. Now this does come in a couple different colors. The white version, i believe, is the dash one i’m, not quite sure on that, but i think this is actually the newest version. I saw a red one, also a bright blue one out there. Of course this is somewhat modeled after a early 80s twitter pickup truck. I had an 87, so i’m sort of nostalgic for that type of vehicle. This one’s done up a little bit different than mine was, of course, and, like i mentioned earlier, it does come with a bunch of parts inside of the box that you kind of have to assemble. So i did have to put on all of these scale details, including the snorkel, the windshield wipers, the mirrors, the handles the clear bezels right here on the front: the indicator, lights, the indicator, lights or brake lights in the rear, and also the rocker panels down there.
On the front just to give a quick size comparison, this is my vanquish vs410 pro a 1 10 scale. Trail truck, of course, have the c24 right there in the middle, a 116 and finally, the far left one is going to be the axial scx. 24, a 124 skill truck now for under 60 bucks. You get a full rtr and this thing is pretty well detailed, it’s, actually a hard body. So this body is not lexan, it’s, actually a hard body shell, which is pretty nice. You got a lot of molded plastic parts, things that i mentioned earlier that you kind of had to assemble on the body. But of course you do have that front bumper right here with kind of a push bar, you do have a molded plastic grille. That definitely is reminiscent of that early 80s to to pick up, you do have led light buckets in there with included leds that do run, which is pretty nice. You do have all of the little side indicators the handles the mirrors, the rocker panels. I was mentioning earlier flipping it onto the back side. The tailgate is not functioning, but once again you do have a handle. You have some clear lenses right here with a decal inside and the bed is actually a pretty well depth. Bed. You can see here that it’s painted, like a flat black, just to give you that depth perception and you do have a little tool box.
Looking thing back here that actually stores your battery that’s, where your battery plugs in inside of the hard body shell, most notable about this truck, is the three quarter depth interior that’s inside you have pretty much everything in there, including a bench seat, a full dashboard, a Steering wheel, shifter knobs a radial all sorts of controls inside of there. This thing is pretty detailed, especially for its size, flipping it to the underside right here. These are solid axles that are both front and rear. They do have kind of metal plates on both the front and the rear section. However, the whole axle is plastic. It is pretty much a four link setup but kind of like a wishbone style on the top links on both front and rear. Finally, the drive shafts do appear to be metal, not sure what kind of metal, but they are metal. Nonetheless, one big bummer is, you, do have a transmission right here that sticks down pretty far and does get hung up a lot when you’re out there on the rocks. Now the shocks do appear just to be friction shocks and they have an internal spring. It’S. No external spring at all on the shocks doesn’t appear to have any fluid inside either wilson tire department tires, are pretty firm and not too soft at all. Doesn’T appear to have any foams inside, but the compound of the tire is pretty hard as far as the wheels pretty decent design for a wheel.
However, it’s held on by a phillips screw holding into the axle now one bummer about the truck, is it doesn’t appear to have any type of easy removal of the body. I counted at least 10 screws on the underside all phillips, to try and remove the hard body, but it does not look easy with that. Let’S go out and run this thing: Music, Music, Music! Well, there you have it everything you get inside the box. How this thing runs so what’s my opinion well for under 60 bucks for an rtr that looks pretty darn good, this isn’t a bad deal if you can get by some of the little quirks with this thing, with not being able to remove the body. A lot of plastic parts that look somewhat brittle parts availability is also questionable on this thing, considering it is somewhat of a toy grade, but for 60 bucks i don’t think you can go wrong with this thing. As far as my running review of this thing, the motor was slightly inconsistent. It was either on or off. There was no slow throttle ramp up on this thing to get you crawling, which was kind of disappointing. The steering servo was kind of decent, but it was hard left hard right. There wasn’t much control from the remote to the actual vehicle, so that’s. My unboxing first look running and review video all in one and now it’s time for you to get a chance to win.
