We are back with the maverick phantom xt. Now, if you follow the channel, you would have seen a little while ago. I bought this in the uk for 99 pound uh it’s about 120 dollars. It was brand new um, one tenth scale monster truck, pretty good fun, uh ran it uh stock and then i’ve done another video 3s and we cut the 550 motor, which is sounding a bit worse for wear. You can’t really see it, but cook the motor on 3s got a little bit too hot, really uh nice cheap bashes. These the only issue i had was it gets a load of stones in the motor on the first one. He got a load of stones in the motor, so i put a little bit of gauze over it and that fixed that, however 3s, it got very hot Applause. So i suppose that answers the question about running it 3s and when i was taking it apart, this little fella was actually um. It got it actually fallen down into the center drive shaft and was rubbing on that as well there’s, a little hole just in the center there, just just there and it had fallen down into there, and that was also rubbing. So, as you can tell by the title, we’ve gone a little bit crazy with this and i’ve put a hpi vector 4000 motor in it, which is straight out of straight out of the hpi wr8 rally: car absolute monster of a Applause, motor Applause, four kv we’re Gon na run it 3s.
Today, no one wants to see 2s, so we’re going to go all in stick 3s in we’re, going to take it for a run, see how fast it goes off road and then we might take it on a few jumps see how it lasts. I mean it’s a 99 pound or 120 dollar rc truck there’s lots of plastic on it. I’Ve seen a few people say: they’re quite weak let’s go test. It it’s, pretty rapid. All right right, let’s, go see how far well there’s about a thousand people walking their dogs today. So we’ve come over this quietish part of the field, uh i’m, not gon na run it on uh, concrete gon na run on grass it’s quite wet relatively long. So i’m not expecting silly speeds, but i think it was 22 mile an hour stock on a 2s, so it’d be interesting to see what it gets off road now with 3s and this crazy brushless in it right we’ve got satellites let’s give it its first run. See if it lasts, yeah it’s, pretty crazy. Looking dodge the dogs let’s go for the first pass here we go that is full throttle. The nice rooster tails coming up what we got then 37 mile out. That is not a bad effort. That’S going to do 45! Maybe on the road so 37 mile an hour off road but 3s net brushes runs. Fine mesh seems fine, there’s, some little jumps over there, not the skate park let’s go and give it a few jumps.
How tough is it? That is the question? What can you get for like 100 120 um? This has broken a few of my rigs, but generally my poor landings, it’s gon na get grip. Oh stick stuck in it wow that has really got itself stuck in there right, we’re, all good. That was very stuck. Nice moved let’s, go check, it that’s it for this one guys that is over. We have chewed all the uh spur gear up in there. So a little bit too much power. It might be right on 2s um but yeah. I know it’s going to be overpowered but 37 mile an hour off road. That is not too shabby for this little thing, and i think i should order a new spare look to see if they got any upgraded ones and then get it back to pretty much stocked with a brush motoring, because it is a good brushed. 110Th basher cheers watching guys.
