So this is the arma granite voltage. This is the brushed voltage two wheel drive granite. The reason why i say it might be literally the best value in rc is we just bought this for, like sixty dollars on the black friday specials, so let’s get this thing unboxed and see what we have inside check out this truck. This is a really good. Looking truck, i mean the body is nice, i believe it’s, roughly the standard granite body just obviously painted different in the mega form when we look underneath it clearly, two wheel drive drive line, but what’s really interesting is look how thick that chassis is. I mean that is a very substantial chassis. I would be very surprised if that is something that broke easily. You can see a pretty strong, looking durable control, arms servos mounted in the front. It comes with a nickel metal hydride battery already installed in this handy dandy. Little side door, which you can pull open and ta dah there’s your battery. We have a brushed setup that comes in this stock, says it’s a 20 turn motor, but one of the things i really like about this truck is think about what is this truck’s normal competition? So two wheel drive monster truck what’s the what’s, the big two wheel, drive monster truck that’s out there, the traxxas stampede. This thing costs a fraction of what the traxxas stampede costs. The motors actually in the gearbox are in front of the rear tires.
Instead of all that weight dangling out back here so that should provide better handling, comes this it’s, actually lipo ready. I think this is very interesting, so it has the jumper from nickel to lithium ion to lipo, but then one thing that i was initially disappointed by was this five wire servo? Why in the heck, do you have a five wire servo? But if you see right here, it actually has a port where a it is three wire servo ready right here on the side. So if this five wire dies on you, which it probably will as a stock servo, you can just pull it out, put a skip. Any aftermarket hobby 10 scale three wire in there and you will be in great shape – comes with it comes with these ec3 connectors, but obviously we can solder on there anything that we want so really interested to get this thing and get get this thing out and Give it a test, looks like the shocks, probably a little a little slow on the rebound. Maybe but they are actually oil filled shocks, because i want you to think about what are some of the things that we’ve actually seen recently, that we’ve been sharing we’ve been sharing you some 60 to 100 options of 16th and 12th scale. High boxing vehicles also brushed a little bit smaller. Those come with lipo batteries instead of these nickel metal, which is better, it comes with a charger.
This comes with the charger, also uh, those are four wheel drive, or this is two wheel drive but i’d be very interested. I think this thing is going to be pretty dang durable, even has contrary to some other arma vehicles. Actually has some metal drive shafts. It looks like back here in the back, so i’ll be very interested to see how this thing drives. Let’S get these batteries charged up, let’s, get it out there and see what we’ve got Music so: Music Applause, Music, so Music, oh Music, uh, Music, Music, Music, Music! That was really pretty fun. I mean i’ll be honest like for the 60 70 dollars, whatever it was on the black friday special. That is pretty much a hundred percent worth it it’ll only do through 2s, we tried to put a 3s battery in it yeah that didn’t work, but you know there’s a couple things that i’m curious about, so 20 turn motor. That was in it. What if we put something like a 12 turn in it? What if we put something like that to boost it up a little bit or what, if we went full brushless now, if we do that, i think we lose the controller also because it looks like it’s a controller receiver in esc in one unit and so we’d End up needing a new controller, new esc, new motor at minimum, oh and a new servo, because it’s a five wire that’s in it right now, so we got to do all that stuff in order to get that to uh to brushless but i’m kind of curious.
I kind of want to i kind of want to try it, but i want to look at a couple different things here. You know what are some of the upgrades that we can do to this. I hear that maybe the transmission gears are a weak link. Brushless. Obviously, would not be good for that, but i want to look around i want to see. Is there something that we can do to this, to make it a little bit more fun, and then i think we might just go ahead and give this thing away. So keep in touch make sure you’ve hit that subscribe button, while i’m working on this. You come over here and check out some of the other videos that we have going on keep in touch with us, because you want to know when we’re going to go ahead and do this giveaway.
