Do you apologize i’ve not been around again uh last week, when i said i’d go and take out the um, the cosworth i did go out went out on a sunday. I absolutely threw it down, so i couldn’t just i just couldn’t – take it out the electrolytes on that are not really waterproof. So um. I was getting a bit fed up that i can’t really use quite a few of my tamiyas when it is quite wet. So i decided to go and buy something that’s um. Well, i know for a fact i can get wet and not really have a problem with. So i bought myself an armor sensing, s3 blx firmware uh i’ve never owned an armor before this is the first time i’ve got a i’ve got an armor but i’m, not one of these i’m, not a fun boy of all different thingies. I don’t care what model or company is if it’s fun i enjoy it. I i don’t care where it comes from really but i’ve been fancying an armor for ages uh. I will blame from a double o: nine adventures: uh rich from rc boise and kirk from rc mitzvah, it’s uh. I blame them three for getting one of these uh with the um and also like with a lot of videos. I mean get people to buy them. Do unboxing and then take it out, get a good good kick in and you know it’s tough, but then the um you don’t see the longevity of it now we’re double nine adventures: he’s got it out all the time and he’s bashed it and that’s.
What really convinced me to get one um but let’s get into this, and this is carrying instead of waffling and let’s, see what we’ve got so yeah so it’s the um it’s, the version. Three um and let’s have a look. What we’ve got for the um what’s new let’s, look on the side of this box, so we’ve got new uh spectrum firmware 366.0 motor with a 3200 kv, brushless motor, stronger, upgraded chassis, uh well to do steering with more clearance for stones uh. As i know, even with the original ones, people had a lot of problems with stones getting trapped in the servos, so the steering would lock up um tougher gun, metal, colored multi spot wheels. Well, this is new. The spectrum 24 gig gigahertz slt3 uh receiver, rubber shield – bearings, as i know, the original ones it was, it was steel and they would get they get seizing up um and power, module, better ceiling and sliding for gear mesh. What we’ve got on here, vented multitrain tires that have been prevented: new direct mount saver, servo saver it’s, a 23 t, sp spline, uh what’s, it saying we’ve got oil filled shocks with silicone o rings because, as we always know with the original sentence, the shocks would Um they would just basically leak all the time um, so we’ll find out what this one does if they leak or not. Well let’s get this open. Let me just readjust this camera a little bit there.
We go i’ve had this since yesterday, because there were kids in i couldn’t get to do a video, so the finally, not in the house. I can actually i can get to open it. Uh all race, metal, bearings, um, we’ve also got um. We’Ve got all metal diff gears in this that’s. It metal diff gears. Sorry about that. I had to go straight so here we go designed to be tough 50 mile, an hour plus on the box. All right, let’s get the box on the floor Music. Oh right! Let’S move this box let’s get the truck on there and we view yeah all right, i take it. This will be the controller, i hope so. Oh yeah there’s a bit of a problem with the very first controls on these as well um, but from what i can see there, we are we’ve got um spectrum. Slt3 we’ve got our um status on there, steering trim, throttle, trim and what we’ve got on the back. Oh we’ve got the uh the 50 75 100 percent, throttle top reverse during reverse um and the third channel, oh that’s, nice and easy to hold, especially so i built do some film at some point where my son’s at school and i can get as well. Um usual four: double a batteries but um yes, it’s not too bad that okay let’s get a look at some look. What we get. So we get the uh manual as usual: um our tool for the wheels in that we’ve got spring spaces to stick up the springs in that an allen key.
Oh two: allen keys that’s. What we’ve got in there that’s a look underneath first armor. Yes, i said: i’ve never owned an armor, so this will be uh very interesting let’s. Do the peel let’s go Music i’m? Like um, i originally wanted the uh green one uh when it was the original one and then uh they brought these ones out and i’ve already got the uh cheater that’s red. So i went for the blue. I don’t have a blue truck and well never had a shark horse truck so i’m loving these pre clips that are already clumped onto the shell, so we don’t lose them the usual underneath yeah. Oh yes, don’t just bash blast. I can see we’ve got extra. Some people think these are to protect that um stiffen up the shell they’re. Not i know these are. These are to stop the paint being rubbed off um that’s. Why they’re putting these places it’s just it’s, definitely to stop the paint being rubbed off when you’re bashing, but um i’m going to coat it inside this duct tape and that’s make it a lot tougher, but um i’m loving the color of this shell – and you know You seem on you see them i’m, not actually seeing one up close i’m. It is a very wide shell, that’s, very cool. So here we go with the um good stuff. Let’S have a look. What we’ve got in here so we’ve got our android amp blx 3s.
Esc we have our 33600kv motor with a heatsink and a fan on the top let’s look at these these shocks. They do feel they feel nice and we’ve gotten with the metal. Hen’S hinge pins. The front they’ve supposedly got bigger. These are supposed to be bigger for um stopping mud getting in but i’ve seen, people run these and they still get absolutely filthy. So i do need to get some type of dust cover just just to click over here but i’ve been told. These are really easy to work on so there’s your motor um. I know you unclip these underneath is the one screw underneath pop that off you get this clip, pull that and the whole unit slides out. I like this uh, this honeycomb, which is there for extra shrimp. You can definitely tell that’s what it was desiring for. Um removable, dryer, shaft that’s just done spring that just slides out and pops off, which is a very cool um we’ve, got an ic5 connector now for the moment uh. I can’t use my 3s battery on this uh i’ve, these uh minimum um 35c uh and my 3s battery that i’ve got is a 30c, so i don’t really want to ruin any electronics um. My 2s, though, is a 40c i’m just waiting for the the the other ic connector. So i can make an adapter i’d already be cutting the wires off this um and then i’ve got an order.
A gens ace, 500 milliamp 3s at 45c um battery for it um. Now i have seen a few people. Do some modifications on these shock towers and i’m going to do the same? They’Ve made an aluminium plaque just to put over the top of this, and they screw it in down there um just to give these a bit more help, but, to be honest, it’s all modular, the parts are not too expensive, like everything else, it’s, always the electrics That the most expensive part um but we’ve got nice almost have nice thick um grease in those discs. They are nice and stiff and then driveshafts are massive. They’Re nice thick drive shafts, but um yeah we’ve got our got our wheelie bar at the back. I’Ve seen these been battered and they have lasted i’ve. Seen a couple: people snap, the arms but it’s been a real bad landing on one wheel like this and it smashed the arms but uh um nice plush tires definitely a lot of grip on them. Um. Those thumb wheels i’m, definitely have to modify them a little bit put some colour on them or something um i’ve heard these tyres and the original tyres do blow out quite easily. So i suppose we’ll try the fishing line trick at some point with that um, but yeah um, i paid 329 from model sports um, but yeah. I really am chuffed that i’ve finally got myself an armor and it’s a sentence, something i don’t have to worry about.
It getting uh beat up what we’ve got. We’Ve got cat pack on the um esc, we’ve got a cat pack on the power leads as well um. We got a, i think it was a 20 kilogram, servo metal, gearing uh, but i know something else different on these is where you put the motor instead of it just having separate holes, it’s um, you can adjust it for putting another big opinion in that um, But i am definitely tough with this. This is an awesome bit of kit. I really can’t wait to get this out and get this blasted um. I think if this part comes before friday force yeah for saturday um, i will take this out up to the car park at morrison’s on uh on sunday when i go shopping, raining or not, it’s going because this can caught with it. Uh supposedly we’ll see how our much in a minute the the receiver and that is inside, is inside this box uh supposedly a bit of a waterproof box, but i won’t be trying to drown it but, for my case, be more super splash proof than anything else. Um, oh and it comes with you programmable esc you’ve got your little button there for resetting in that, but um yeah let’s have a sorry, i’m gon na sniff sniff of a brand new car. You can tell but it’s new armor yeah i’ve heard about stones. Getting stuck inside here and inside there and stopping the steering, but we will see on that – i really don’t know why i just don’t cover that hole up now for water.
I understand for leak for dripping out, but you can easily uh help it out a tiny bit bit of medication, but yeah i’m loving it absolutely loving. It just got to get out and give it a try, but um yeah um. Like i say i hope you enjoyed this. It was just a quick unboxing and a quick review of my new armor sentence. Blx version three but uh yeah. I can’t wait to get it out. Definitely gon na do some modifications on it and i’m. Definitely gon na get that shell taped up today, i’m ready but um yeah, so yeah. So actually i do apologize for last week. I did go actually go out because i went out shopping anyway, but it was so wet um. The cosworth would not survive the electrics anyways. It was pointless i’d, rather get it out when it’s at least dry. So i get some good footage but um yeah. So, thank you very much for watching. Please subscribe and bye.
