So what we got here today is a box of mystery. This is a new red cat racing. Volcano 16. uh let’s, open it up and see what there is inside um it’s kind of very cheaply made box. But when you open it the car inside and the setup is much nicer than what you see on the outside. So let’s see what they did over here. So when you take it outside this watch, you get right away. Uh. So far, look nice, uh, also you’re gon na have inside of the box here, um kind of the instruction for this and some stickers. I look like a rear tail light of a camaro uh. Actually, the body looked like a camaro we’ll see how long before they’re gon na get suit. For that um let’s see the vehicle itself. Is it tied to the box? It is not perfect. This is the vehicle it’s, a 1 16 scale and it looked like a big monster truck, but it is a complete new and it it’s a toy kind of like the wheels and everything look like very plasticky and kind of toyish walmart style, but it’s probably be A little bit stronger, um it’s funny everything on it, look more of a toy than what you usually see from redkit, but i guess this is what they were going with on this vehicle. Let’S open it up and see what there is inside. They did add for the stupid small pins.
They add this uh, this piece of plastic, i don’t, understand why they don’t make the big size for this or a bigger loop, but they did put those piece of plastic that probably will break off uh. The body is nicely done and it’s having it the non scratch uh film that we’re gon na remove and then, when you look inside so look how basic this thing is. This is a complete toy, so it’s mean that it’s uh gon na be cheap. This thing gon na be like a kind of a hundred dollar car. You have your brushed motor that i save the stickers right. On top of it telling you that warning, it’s gon na be hot right on the motor itself. You have all in one esc, uh. Now i really don’t like all in one esc, because if you want to upgrade this to brushless, this is really a big problem. Also the steering servo that they have here. You can see it’s a steering servo that they have five wires. I never understood those five wire steering servos. I think that this is a big mistake, because you cannot ever change it with a normal um steering servo. Now the battery that they’re giving you here actually supposedly there is two of those batteries um. So we will see this is a small lipo battery it’s, a 7.4 battery and they’re small about 800 milliamp uh the shock. Those are actually pretty cool because those are call over adjustable shocks.
Um let’s see how the oil no they’re not off. They just dump down right away, so it’s mean that we’re gon na have to open it and put some oil inside um. Now the battery is just velcroed in so you can just actually pull it out. Real quick and you can see that this is their ex flight. Brain is 7.4, and this is like the lithium ion, the lithium ion and the lipo they’re all kind of the same thing. Uh, and this is the 800. Probably you can put a bigger battery and run it. It should not be that big of a problem now, while the battery is out. I just wanted to look inside and i see that the four wheel drive run inside with. Actually they have a metal shaft. I don’t know if the camera will catch it, yet there is a metal shaft over there for it. Um it’s, pretty cool but we’re gon na need to go and actually run it and see how it’s gon na do those tires feel. Okay. Now, when you look inside here um, it does not look like actually like uh, like the regular nut that you will get for the wheels. This is actually a screw, so this is already going to be a little bit of a problem, and let me see it is a 12 millimeter. It is a 12 millimeter inside over there. If you can look it’s a 12 millimeter um and this is kind of a redcat vehicle, usually they have some vehicle that they’re buying and uh naming with their brand.
But this one actually the tires even say, redcat racing. So what you’re going to do next is actually take this thing out and i’m gon na go and try it and see how it’s gon na run um let’s see maybe it’s gon na run good, maybe it’s uh gon na be just another waste of time and Money but we will see um. I know all the companies trying right now to make new product to make everything cool, and we are right before christmas, there’s like two weeks for christmas, and this is kind of the cheapest vehicle that will be available this year. I just want to give a heads up for everybody: every year’s us, a zombie show up and everybody else in the industry getting huge, huge discount to give you guys a better discount for black friday and everything this year. None of the vendor, not red kit racing not to rise in hobby, not nobody give any discount to the store to give you guys um discount. So, just so, you know and remember it for the future when corona is over and everything that none of those companies that you supporting right now was giving you discount for this 2020 christmas. I just want people to know that i’m kind of very mad about it. Um but there’s, nothing that we can do um anyway, let’s go run.
