We’Ve got something cool some new product in our in our shop, and that is gon na be this. This is the rgt crusher crawler now previously these are primarily only been available through banggoods shipping from china, but we’re actually now stocking them in our store here in here in houston and uh. So here it is it’s kind of like a old school type of uh body, look to it old school truck body to it. So this is this is the kind of like um yellowy colored one, and it comes in a few different colour body shells. You can see here that it comes in the yellow, the red and the green, and we are, we are stocking all of these um. So what do you get in the box where you get the truck? You get this cool it’s, a good radio, actually it’s. A four channel radio. So if you want to run ancillary items on here, then you’ve got third channel activation here and a fourth channel activation here, so you can run lights. It’S already got lights on it, we’ll talk about that in a minute, and it comes with a winch. You can get a winch for it too um, so maybe you could run a winch or something else that you want to run off there. Um does have mountains for a winch here in a box, you get the charger. It comes with. A nickel metal hydride battery uh with a dean’s plug a t plug on it.
So we’ve got uh a little charger and then, where else do we get? We get the uh construction manual in here we get a sticker set. The sticker set is actually for on here for, like on the bed you can put like diamond plate, or you can choose wood for on on on a bed part here, which is which is kind of cool. You get a choice to do the wood or the diamond plate. Whilst we have here, we have extra battery straps um. If you want to perhaps go to a bigger capacity battery, then you can use these straps to include those. We got a spare spare screws. Perhaps these are for the bead locks i’m, not sure, because it has bead locks and then it’s got uh. We got the wheel caps, yeah they’re not installed. We have on the truck, has a full size spare with the wheel cap already installed. Well, the little screws are to hold the wheel caps on. I see what they’re for now so there to hold the wheel caps on so that’s that’s. What you get in the box, nice controller and uh some nice stickers you’ve got all these other kind of stickers. Um, some of them are kind of generic, and some of them are kind of like pseudo real stickers, discovery channel network off road. Look at that i didn’t know there was a discovery channel off road i’m gon na have to look for that tonight on my uh on my cable tv um.
So what do we get? What do we get? What are the specifications of this truck? Well, we get some. It comes with some real some with some good upgrades ready to go. This truck is very it’s, quite popular in the online environment, and now here it is in you’re available in the state. So it comes with a 550 motor and it comes with an adjustable front. Bumper. You can move it in and out. It comes with trailer hooks on the rear and on the front, actually has a unique kind of horizontal rear suspension. We’Ll, look at that some more in a minute. We’Ve got a four channel receiver system. It comes with the hobby wing 1060 brushed esc that also supports lipos you’ve just got to move the jumper over. So if you want to run a lipo in this truck, you can do and i believe you can run a 3s lipo with this. With this um with this esc, um it’s got metal shocks, threaded shock bodies, metal threaded shock bodies, all around it’s got the cool flip body, shell, cantilever style and it’s got the cantilever style suspension as well, and we’ve got a cvd metal drive shaft. So it comes with metal drive, shafts from the factory, not plastic, they’re, they’re, all metal and then we’ve got all metal gears in the in in the transfer cases and in the diffs and everything like that and a slipper clutch system uh on on the main gear.
The servo that it comes with is a 15 kg which is a reasonable, servo it’s all metal geared, but there are a little bit stronger ones than that right now, but it’s not a huge truck. That needs a lot of massive torque on the servo so that that’s, a good servo and so that’s that’s some of the specifications that it uh that it comes with so let’s let’s take a closer look at the truck so, like i said it comes in this Kind of like yellowy orange color, the red and like like a drab, almost camo green color, it comes in we’ve, got all colors in stock. He’S got working headlights on the front. It’S got indicators that work. When you go to full lock. The indicators come on and flash we’ll show that in a minute it comes with the side. Mirrors comes with like a cool kind of air intake old school vertical exhaust stack, it’s got a um fire extinguisher for fire extinguisher here and um it’s got the bead lock wheels on it. With these pretty soft and aggressive crawling tires. These do feel really like quite good quality wheels and tires on here. Full bead locks i’m. Looking underneath, we can see it comes with. These are actually metal plates on the differentials front and rear we’ve got the steel. These are metal metal, drive, shafts, which is a big upgrade they’re. Some of the red cat crawls we sell don’t come with these they’re an option.
Uh we’ve got these um supports in um, supporting rods here and uh yeah it’s a it’s, a it’s, a real nice design with a metal. Here we can see this is a metal frame on the chassis and the suspension is this kind of like unique, cantilever style design. Like a knee, you see it here, moving up and down almost like a knee. So, in order to lift the body up, there’s a body clip underneath here right there that i’ve removed you remove that body clip and then you can just grab the body, give it a little wiggle and it pops up be careful not to yank the lights out. But they’re on an easy disconnect here. If you want to put the body all the way up and the rear is towards the rear, the rear light is there and the front lights are here, and it comes with this. Nickel metal hydride battery it’s only a 2000 milliamp, so you’re, probably only going to get 15 20 minutes crawling on this battery that’s, probably one of the first upgrades the battery is held down both with this kind of clamp and the clamp you just grip it and It comes off and it snaps back on, but the battery is also held with velcro underneath as well. Well, i say it does come with those velcro straps as well that go around here. So if you need to put a bigger battery in that this won’t clamp onto, but this clamp won’t clamp on to, if you use a fatter battery or a lipo that’s, not the 3s – probably not going to be held by this.
But they do give you the velcro straps, which is which is a nice addition. So we can see here the rear suspension, which is kind of unique to this vehicle i’m just going to pull these out Music. So we can see here the rear. I said it’s a suspension style, rear suspension, solid axle, front and rear and with this cantilever style suspension, so that’s something that’s a bit unique to uh. To this to this particular truck, and we can see, it’s got a 550 motor, not a 540, so it’s a little bit longer um a high torque, and i think it is. I read somewhere what exactly the turn was on it um, i think it’s a 16 or a 17 turn motor and it’s a 15 kilogram servo, and it also comes with a metal servo horn. So you see here, we’ve actually got a metal servo horn on here. So this truck, really, if you look at it’s, got the aluminum shock bodies here with the threaded aluminum shock bodies which a lot of trucks don’t come with. It’S got the metal servo horn it’s got the metal drive train already built into it um. So it comes. I, like it already installed on it, so really that’s a lot of um. A lot of hop ups already installed on this uh on this truck. So what i’m gon na do is i’m gon na reconnect the lights here. Make sure i get these the right way around, i guess with them being dc, it might not matter plug them back in like so.
I think they were the other way now that’s the rear. So this is the front front, goes in the front. Rear goes in the rear and we’ve got that all hooked up so let’s take a quick look at the radio. Radio, like i say, is a four channel underneath here: we’ve got the standard, adjustments and trims um for different things and throttle reversing and steering reversing um. It runs on four double a batteries for double a’s and uh. It feels nice, you know it. Doesn’T have a rubber cover on the steering wheel, but it’s got some texture on here, so you can feel it. I mean it doesn’t feel cheap. It feels it feels reasonably good. The fourth channel has three positions, so i guess that’s, if you perhaps want to put in us a two or three speed transmission or something in here or do something different. The third channel is just a single press, so it’s one way or another on the third channel. So we turn on the radio. It’S got a nice blue glowing light here and then we’ll lift this up and we’ll turn on turn on the vehicle on off switch. Just here and uh you can see the headlights have come on. They are quite bright, it’s a very bright sunny day today here, but you can see that the headlights are really uh really quite bright and give a good light, and we got these tow hooks on the front here and if you turn the wheels like, i was Saying to full right or full left it doesn’t do it when it’s only partial turn it’s only when you go full turn the indicators come on, which is a nice little touch in the back.
It’S only got this um high running light in the rear up here and that that comes on when you go into reverse yeah, you see it comes on there when you come into reverse that comes on so it’s not really going to illuminate the back of anything Behind but it it comes on light or anything um that it just comes on in reverse um. So this thing looks really cool, so let’s put it on the ground and see how it runs so we’ll push down the ground here and uh we’ll just drive it around the parking lot i’m, not going to go crawl anywhere. This is going to be a demo model, might go over the kerbs a little bit show you some of the movement speed, wise it’s, a crawler, so that’s full speed right there same speed in reverses forwards, and you can take it over here and drive it up As easy as that, that is absolutely flawless, you can see the suspension move. There comes back down there, let’s get a bit closer and do that again. I really like the way that rear suspension moved there with that solid axle rear. So here we go nice and slow. Look at the movement on that rear suspension. That is really quite impressive, very very fluid movement and a lot of movement there. It goes coming back down. No body drag nothing touching going up. That kind of, like seven inch curb there six seven inch curb no problem, so this truck it’s gon na retail for 3.
95 3.99. I think ‘9.95. We got them here in our store in houston and um. We might be putting them in our online store too we’re going to get all the parts in stock this week and we’re doing a gon na order. A full set of everything for this truck, because we’re really gon na try and support this one. We don’t sell any vehicles without having parts, so this one’s coming to our store it’s available. Now you can come and pick one up today, we’re open until four um, but this video, probably won’t, go up to later today, but we’re open every day. Ten till seven except sunday, which we’re open twelve to four so come and check it out, come and check out the rgt crusher. If you’re looking for something that’s different that’s got lights already installed there’s a very unique, very fluid suspension there that looks like it works. Really really well, then, this might be the vehicle for you.
