Now these things have been around for a while. They always come with different body types and styles, but i didn’t really like this corvette style but i’m, like yeah i’m, still going to get it it’d, be fun just to kind of mess around this little rc car. But then i saw this hot wheels car the 67 off road camaro with these giant tires red white and blue color scheme. Are you kidding me? Yes? Yes, then it got me thinking. I could take this diecast car, take the body off the top and put it on the rc car huh, but i thought with my experience with these little micro rc cars they’re, usually way too fast anyways. So maybe the extra weight will slow it down and be a little bit more manageable to race on tabletops, this car is so cool, but now that i’m, looking at it up close i’m, realizing that the chassis also is the rear and the front bumper. So if i take the chassis off it’s going to change the way, this car looks but either way, we’ll open them up and see what we got going on here. So as we take apart, this adventure force, rc car and i don’t know if you’re keeping track of this but i’m at walmart and i’m. Seeing adventure force brand everywhere. They got like nerf type guns and other toys and these rc cars and all kinds of other stuff they’re coming in with a force adventure force.
So this little camaro is amazing. This is the kind of car that i would have dreamed of. Having when i was a kid i’m dreaming of having it right now, i do have it right now and i don’t want to wreck it. You know, because to take the body off, you got to drill out these little posts on the bottom here, and i just don’t want to do that, and especially look at this it’s got rubber tires extra, big wheel wells. This is such a cool looking car. What am i going to do with a matchbox car? I’M? Sorry, a hot wheels. I don’t know so yeah that’s, where the rc cars kind of make more sense to me because i’m like well. What do i do with the car? Just sits there, how much more fun would it be to actually be able to drive it around? Oh, my goodness, this thing has lights. It has headlights and braking lights or reverse lights. That is amazing. So let’s give this thing a little test run. Okay, it does what i expected it’s pretty fast it spins around. We got uh. What do we got here? Six turn we can go forward left right, backward left right, those lights, that’s going to be cool if it has lights on it. How neat is that so looking at this camaro, i just realized the wheel. Wells are different and it really is kind of making me not want to take this hot wheels body off now, because it’s just enough i mean, i think the larger wheel wells will compensate and i could probably get it in there.
It won’t cause that big of a problem but i’m also realizing it, looks a little narrow as well, and i just remembered that i have a box of hot wheels and matchbox cars in the cupboard yeah that’s, where i keep them. Where do you keep your matchbox cars? I picked these up a while ago i was gon na resell them as a bundle and now that i’m, looking through these there’s, some really cool little cars. I sold all my old childhood cars and i noticed when i was looking through this box that there are a couple of ones that i used to have as a kid and it’s kind of neat, just to see them and think back and reminisce on how cool These cars looked, i kept my cars in way better condition than these, though these things are completely worn out and look at this i didn’t realize i have a batmobile. What whoa? What is this knight rider? You guys i got knight rider. This box is full of all kinds of gems, unfortunately, these cars – well, i guess fortunately, for the person that owned them. These cars are really well played with, which is fine with me, because i was watching a video of the steady crafton craftsman and he made a bunch of like mad max post, apocalyptic type cars, and it got me thinking like oh that’d, be kind of fun to Do that but there’s some other options here.
If i didn’t want to take apart this camaro, i could probably get into one of these like vans. I never like these plastic hoods on these things or one of these other types of cars. It could be an option. So now that i’m, looking at this thing, there’s no way i’m gon na wreck this camaro it’s, just too cool, looking i’ll, probably give it to a nephew or a niece or yeah right, i’m. Gon na keep it are you kidding me, but what i’m thinking is? I do like the red white and blue color scheme so i’m thinking i’m, just gon na spray paint the current body, this corvette body and just make it the same color scheme, it’s, just white with red and blue pinstripes. How hard can that be right and it’s? A little hard we’ll find out later on taking this body off, we got a little headlight plastic and the taillight plastic it’s, pretty easy, all right so i’m just going to sand it a little bit and get it ready and then paint it up and while that’s Drying got me thinking, you know i used to be in the slot cars yeah h0 slot cars for sure. So these are some of my old slot car bodies, and i was looking at that plastic body from the rc car and i’m. Like these look kind of the same, when i was younger, i was really into this slot car stuff and what the funny thing was.
I wasn’t even that good at racing, but i would go to the races every sunday and me and my buddy were really into this so much so that we would get like intense. We would drill out all the plastic because the theory was less plastic less weight and the idea is that you want less weight in the back, so the tail end doesn’t spin out. So we would drill out these little gear hubs and even the hubcaps we would drill out it was insane it would be different if we were actually good. I think he was a lot better than i was, but yeah i’ll go into more about this in another video. Let me know in the comments, if you want to hear more about that it’s hilarious some of this stuff, and i definitely want to share some of these old slot cars and some of those other stories, but look at this. This is one of my favorite love. This car body looked amazing, always liked it. This is actually a johnny lightning car. These are retro style bodies that would come on little pullback chassis and then you could unscrew it from those chassis and then put them on h0 cars really cool little concept that johnny lightning did, and it was perfect timing too, because johnny lightning came out with these Ho retro bodies – i was just getting into slot car racing and all these new retro bodies start showing up and they’re actually super affordable, because the original ones were super expensive.
You know because they’re from the 70s, i would buy some i’d keep them for a while. Then i would sell them trying to make money, so i could use it towards getting higher quality parts for my slot car racing, which i still wasn’t that good at it. I want to know if this body will fit on this rc chassis. Oh, my goodness, it fits. This is amazing. Now it sits a little high, but it kind of works with this truck body and from up here you can’t even tell let’s, see what this looks like. Oh my gosh look, how cool this is look at this. It has headlights and taillights wow. This whole video just went a whole different direction. Now adventure force rc micro cars. Now i don’t totally feel comfortable leaving the car on here, because it does stretch out that body a little too much for my taste, especially on these old vintage car bodies, because this one’s an original vintage from 1970s and that plastic starts to get brittle and i’m. Looking here on the board – and it looks like i’m not going to be able to trim it down with a dremel or anything because it looks like the board is using all of the wires. But that is pretty amazing, though now adventure force really missed the mark. Here, because this, the body doesn’t quite fit, you can see here how the tires don’t line up. They really miss their chance to just capitalize on that slot car market, because the way that little board is it would work perfectly with the little clips inside of the slot car body, see that oh that’d be so cool, but for what it is.
It does kind of work enough to where for ten dollars you could well. I guess you could just leave the body that it comes with and just leave that and just brace it around and put it on your shelf or in a drawer and never use it again, like you’re planning on doing anyways right, but anyways, all right. The paint’s dry let’s bring this in. I did some pinstriping. I realized that i’m awful at painting micro cars. I don’t know why i used scotch tape and paint. I should have just used a marker and just ran three lines down really quick, but from back here it kind of looks good up close and not so much. But here we go. I got my red white and blue color scheme it’s, not totally exactly how i wanted it it’s, not on the cool camaro body, but it is what it is right, but i think it’s super cool that we figured out that the adventure force chassis does fit the Ho scale cars for the slot car body, so you could have a slot car race without a slot car track. That’S amazing check out links in the basement if you’re interested in these cars or want to find out any more about uh. The slot car stuff i’ll put some links down there for the johnny lightning stuff, but thanks for watching, let me know if you want to see more about the slot car stuff there.
It is see you next time now that is a nice ride. That right, there is that’s the nice ride. That’S amazing.
