This is called the hailstorm. It also goes by the name, the stadium truck the model number on this is the 18858. You know it doesn’t, say hailstorm anywhere on the body. I think this is like a newer version. I believe they had a previous version of the hailstorm, so this is sort of a newer, upgraded version of it, but i don’t know exactly what the differences are between this and the slightly older version of it. But this truck, if it looks familiar to you, they kind of have some different versions of this and they’re all the same chassis and really vehicle with just different bodies on it, because if you watch my channel you’ll notice, i just reviewed this high boxing race truck And, as you see, it’s the same exact thing: if the body is identical to the chassis is identical. The body’s own thing is different: they have the same body clips just this has a different body. It looks more like a truck. This looks like a truckee, so when you put this one together, you have you have to put the decals on it. Just like this one, and then you have to put you know the spoiler on. If you want to put the spoiler on this and uh, you know that’s pretty much it. The only difference i can see is that there’s a little bit difference in the tire patterns. Applause that’ll show up in the camera about the glare of the sun there, but this is more like has some v shaped treads, and this has more like these uh star, like three sided little grips and the tires it’s.
The only difference that i can tell between these two vehicles, so i didn’t think there was a much use in going over everything with this i’ll. Just briefly, briefly, do it if you guys want to see more detail what comes with this then go check out the review on the race truck, but you do get two lipo batteries. These are 850 milliamp hour, lipos connectors. You need a little basic usb plug to balance port to charge it and you get a phillips screwdriver which lets you attach that spoiler on. If you wish to put it on and then of course, you go ahead and put the decals on, however, that you wish this is no ‘0 little brush motor it’s got a metal dog bones. It is just friction shocks, so if you want to upgrade the oil field i’d recommend that it’ll make a big difference on these little vehicles, but it’s all the same as the race truck all the same. So what we’ll do is we’ll take it out for a drive. It comes with a very basic little pistol, grip, controller on and off switch on the side. Here’S. Your steering trim on the top here you’ve got several reversing which you shouldn’t need to mess with, and it’s slow and normal i’ll put it in slow to start out it’s, very slow and slow speed, as you’d expect, but it’s really good for a kid in slow Speed uh someone who’s just learning how to use rc cars so to turn this on there’s an on and off button on the side.
I like that. You don’t have to dig up in here and try to find on off switch just press that in and it comes on and you see there’s white leds in the front. Just like the race truck let’s turn the controller on then it’ll bind and those lights will go solid and now it’s, solid and i’ve got fully proportional, steering and throttle uses a regular miniature servo in there. So it’s just a nice. These are really nice because i’ve driven the race truck already, as you guys know so i already familiar with with this so i’m, going to throw it down here and we’ll. Take it out and drive around let’s put sure it’s all the way in slow, and then i didn’t have this little toggle switch all the way over. This would be a good speed for someone younger or someone very inexperienced. They might want to know how to dry. You know to use one of these and not crash it a lot. You could almost drive this indoors if you’re a big enough area at slow speed, though i’d probably advise against it, and this flip it here that will flip up the normal. You see much much faster in normal speed. This is going to be a very short video guys because i’ve already reviewed the race truck version. So if you’re someone who’s out looking for the hail storm version, then you stumble across this video and you can see that there’s no difference between this and the race truck and they may even have it.
You know they. They sell these in different colors as well. So they have a lot of different listings for these cars. I’Ll link you to this in the description. If you’re interested in this vehicle, uh it’s available from high boxing store on amazon.com, if you have a prime membership, you can get this thing really quick, but these will make a great uh christmas present i’ve already drove this one earlier and i uh i come back To using my old firefly 8s action camera, while my osmo action is in for its second repair in about a month with it constantly stopping recording in the middle recording. As much as i love that camera i got ta say i’m, so disappointed in the and and the fact it just it constantly. You know isn’t needing repaired. I mean it’s it’s ridiculous, thankfully it’s under warranty, so it’s not costing me anything but anyway, i’m back to 8s i’ve used i used for years, and i guess i didn’t format the card correctly. I went here and filmed this and uh. I didn’t have anything on the sd card, so the battery is not fully charged so i’m. Getting that it’s not going to make any difference right now and speed it just won’t run as long of course, these batteries pretty much the cars don’t really reduce in speed. On these lipos, until they get right before the low voltage cut off, but probably somewhere in that 10 to 12 minute range for a total drive time, depending if you’re, how you drive it if you’re driving aggressively like i am right now, probably somewhere around there.
Of course, if you drive it in slow right, you’re gon na get a lot longer run time and slow rate, so all right, let’s back it up here. He has four wheel drive, which i don’t think i mentioned while ago, but i’ll show you guys that right here, lift it up, you can see. It’S got the dog bones in the front and the back really nicely built little car and i’m sure i’m and it’s got full ball bearings in it. I mean it’s got all the things you’d want in a budget rc car because years ago a budget rc car didn’t include anything like that. It was all plastic. You didn’t, get ball bearings with any of them all right guys. I think that should be enough. I mean if you want to see more bashing in the same car in more detail, just go check out the race truck review Applause. What i’ll do is link that video down in the description or put a card up here. If i remember, if i remember – and you guys can go check out that video, so that should wrap it up, i mean this is the same exact vehicle. Maybe it might come down to just whichever one’s cheaper, then you’ll usually have a coupon. You can clip for a lot of these, but one might be a few dollars cheaper than another, depending on the color and whether you go with this, you know hell the hail storm or you go with the uh.
You know something like the uh, the race truck. All right guys that wraps it up hope you liked this quick video uh be sure to like the video and uh leave me a comment.
