let’s get right down to it, so doug and strickland at price point number one. We have the arma typhoon 4×4 v3 at just 229.99. Now this represents an awful lot of car for the money, so let’s take a quick look at it on the armor website in a little bit more detail. Why do i like the type well the success telephone? Is a big favorite of mine, i’ve earned every version from v1 through to v4 and in the new year i’m, probably going to get a v5 now the typhoon mega 550. What is there to like about this it’s brushless ready when i interviewed jason dearden? He told me that the new mega range then made everything on it, so you could simply drop brush this power in away and go tesselated slipper pad to put up with all that power. Metal bearings all round. We’Ve got a new steering system which is designed to so that stones don’t get caught up in the steering which has been an issue on some of the mega cars. Previously, a new chassis which promises to be much stronger than the outgoing one, larger pull tab on a power module. So you can take the thing apart, much easier calculator, slipper pad, as i mentioned, new steering, which allows stone and debris to fall out rather than getting stuck in the transmission spectrum. Slt3R radio that’s a new one on me, but have you ever say in the comment section below the video 20? More talk on the servo than the outgoing one and, as i did say, it was brushless ready, and indeed here we are tough brushless ready transmission stem gives us the armor for us anyway, there are some cracking videos which you can watch in your own time on The armor mega site, but all in all, i think, it’s an awful lot of car for the money, but stuck out the box that’s.
An absolutely cracking amount of car for the price of 229.99 i’ll put a link to it at a main below the video and the fact you can drop brushless power straight in and go is uh probably puts it number one to my mind, not just in on This list, not just in terms of price point but in terms of quality of car overall anyway, moving up in price let’s go to number two, which is which is the armor sentinel. 4X4, v3 550 mega i’ve gone for this over and above the granite for the following reasons. The reasoning behind it is this. This is also brushless ready. If you buy this car and make it brushless you’ll be able to drive the thing flat out with all four wheels on the ground if you buy them onto the granite version and fit brushless power to it, it’s constantly wanting to wheely. So this is on the list, as opposed to the granite, purely in terms of its handling capability and while it’s similar to the typhoon v3 in terms of electrics and part of the layout you’ll, see it’s very, very different in terms of the body, the bumpers, the Side guards etc and, to my mind, if you’re wanting an alternative to the traxxas slash, then the sentinel 4×4 550 mega should certainly be on your list, and there is that phrase armor tough to consider, although i do think that applies more to the metal chassis versions Than this car, but a quick look at this page we’ll show you.
It has got a lot of very similar features, if not identical to those found in the armor typhon, but it will handle quite differently and at that price point of 229.99. I do feel it deserves its place at number. Two on the list out of the two, a brushless conversion to the typhon v3, would be my choice: i’ll link to it below the video anyway, at number three, we have brushless short course truck the other day in one of my videos, i included the brushed version, But this brushless one represents a huge value for money at 249 dollars compared with the traxxas slash vxl at 320 dollars orbit. The traxxas slash will probably achieve that 60 miles an hour, whereas the low seat might struggle uh to reach that kind of speed on that. But for an ion 70 difference, you can still get an awful lot of car for your money and i do love my losses. There’S a lot to like about this dynamite fuse 60 amp, esc, brushless, 3300 kb motor compared to the three and a half thousand kb on on the traxxas, which is probably where the traxxas has the edge on the top of speed bearings all round. This has got spectrum abc, which is definitely gon na, be in its favor, in keeping that rear wheel, drive power down much the same as the tsm does on the traxxas available in two different color schemes, as you can see down at the bottom here, but anyway To like one of my original points, i would suggest that if you are after a traxxas, slash vxl two wheel drive, you should definitely be considering the losi 22s brushless version.
I’Ll put a link to it below the video. Well, at number four, we have a personal favorite of mine it’s, the traxxas ford gt. Arguably this is one of the best rc car looking bodies out. There looks absolutely stunning in pretty much whatever color you put on it, although i have to say the personal flavor is the red, as opposed to the blue. Why do i like this well it’s, very, very easy indeed, to modify there’s a lot to like about this car? If you throw a brushless setup in here about pretty much any form, you can get this thing going over 70 miles an hour, fill it fairly easily. Indeed, it is very, very easy indeed to work on the car great layout. As you will see from that picture, there comes with the brushed 12 turn titan motor, but very very easy indeed to upgrade, particularly if you just want to drop in the traxxas volume system. It’S simply a straight plug and play job on there. You can be doing 70 without any problem at all. A lot to like about this car 279 at the traxxas webs on the taxis website. However, just 259 at 8.95, at a main, so i’ll put a link to that below the video, but this is definitely one of my favorite rc cars top 10 of rc cars under 300. For christmas 2020 we have the sen racing suzuki chimney 4×4 solid axle monster, truck completely ready to run yours for 259.
As i said, it’s richie’s first curveball on here now, i’ve watched some of the videos shot by tony at ccx rc, which i highly recommended. Tony absolutely loves this little car, and that is good enough for me, as the guy really knows these monster trucks. He has this wheeling, like an absolute demon in some of his videos and stuff on cube to highlight that fact. The next image i click on, shows the wheelie bar there at the rear. So this thing is designed for some fun around your garden: you’re not going to need a huge area to run this in because it doesn’t go blisteringly fast, but it’s still wrapping enough in the videos that i’ve seen from ccx rc, so that is richie’s little curveball. Uh one in this top 10 list – and i think it looks quite eye popping in that lime green link to the below the video. If that price point interests you we have the traxxas ford fiesta st rally ready to run yours for 269.95. Now people might be saying what you’re crazy rich 270 for a brushed traxxas car. Well, for one thing, this body is absolutely gorgeous when you sit in a flash, but that isn’t. What motivated me to put this car on the list simply put. This is one of the best handling traxxas cars out there that i’ve ever driven i’ve owned. Two of these modified, the haircut of them i’ve got one at the minute which is running, which is running on a 4s setup, will be that 4s power coming from armor.
The thing the handling of the thing, as you will see in this skateboard video from traxxas, is simply sublime. Literally, it is one of the best handling traxxas cars out there on the market. One of the reasons for that is we’ve got the low center of gravity chassis on there i’m also liking it because it is so easy to work on, and there are so many modification parts out there already on the market that you can buy from it. You can replace just about everything on this car to your heart to modify the heck out of it to your heart’s content. But, as i say, this is certainly one of the best handling traxxas cars out there straight out of the box, not necessarily about top speed. But if you fit a 3s setup in there, this thing will be doing 50 plus without any worries at all, but it is the fact it’s so easy to work on to my and it’s such good handling that i feel it deserves its place on this list. I’Ve done quite a lot of videos on this car through my series of modifications on it so do check those out. I’Ll put a link to some of them below the video as i’ll put a link to this car below the video so on to number seven, which is which some of you will be placed here is the last traxxas car i’ll be featuring today. But it is the traxxas stampede vxl a worthy contender for this list.
279.95. What is there to like about this? Sheer performance 65 miles an hour plus pretty much straight out. The box yeah it’s, two wheel, drive but sorry for the price point you just cannot ignore that speed on there also proven platform huge amount of aftermarket spares available for this car, for you to modify to your heart’s content, very, very durable, very tough indeed, and you Can get by the spares from it from just about anywhere you care to think about and while that 65 mile an hour top speed, it’s great for beginners, because at the base level the thing will run at just 30 miles an hour. But by changing the gearing changing the batteries, you can increase the speed up to that full 65 miles an hour. So not only is it a super fast rc but, to my mind, it’s a great first rc for your kids. If you think they’re going to grow and want to go faster as time goes on without you ever actually having to spend an awful lot more to upgrade the car, so taking all that to account, that is what i feel the traxxas stampede deserves its place on. The list at 279 95., so what’s next on the list – well maybe time for richie’s to throw in another curveball and that would be the mighty jlb racing. Cheetah comes in two variants: the 80 amp one just comes in under our price point of 300 at 294 dollars.
What is there to like about this car? Well, first of all, while it comes with a 3s battery, it’s 4s capable so the esc and the motor will handle 4s with absolute ease on it. With 4s on board, it’s got more power to use that risky price. Then you can shake a sticker. You will know, but the wheelie bar at the back and believe me even on loose dirt. You will need that this thing may need a few modifications along the way. I will warn you things like stronger drive. Shafts are no bad idea at all straight out of the box: it’s, not bad at all for the money, certainly when you compare it to similar spec cars, that of this size that are going to take 4s, which are few and far between there’s. A look at that wheelie bar, but i haven’t i have owned one of these highly rated it’s got some neat features like threaded. Big ball shocks. All around i said, comes completely ready to run with battery included on there. Yours for 294.99 at banggood i’ll put a link to it below the video mine at number nine. We have the zd racing 9020v3, otherwise known as the pirates uh three. What is there to like about this? Well, this buggy is also 4s capable straight out the box. Quite rapid on 3s certainly very rapid on 4s it’s, not necessarily geared up for a high speed, but it is geared up for acceleration, which it gives bite the bucket load on here.
What is there to like about? It well check out the amount of orange on there. All of that that you see is in orange, it’s, actually anodized aluminum included those threaded big bore shocks at the front. We’Ve got metal shock towers, both front and rear. So there’s a lot to like about this you’re thinking. Oh that looks like a plastic tray there, richie! No! Ah, underneath this plastic we’ve got a full metal chassis along the whole length of line of the car. There is a hint of 6s armor typhoon in there to my mind, no it’s, not as quick it’s, not as quick it’s, maybe not as strong as the success armor typhoon, but it’s coming up on 200, less in price i’ll put a link to one of my Videos where i rated this as the best sub 350 buggy at the time when i reviewed it and after watching that video you, like the look of it yours on banggood, for 299.89 link to it below the video and lastly, in our list of top 10 rc Cars under 300 for christmas 2020, we have the axil smt 10 grey digger yours for 299.99, now i’ll highlight some of the downsides to this car. To start with, it is no rocket ship. Do not expect to break the speed limit. With this thing, you can fit a brushless setup in here. If you do fit a brushless setup in here expect everything else on the car to break in short order.
If you go brushless, you are going to need to upgrade everything pretty much that you are looking at other than the body and the chassis on there. If you go brushless with this thing, it will just eat parts. No is it the best of crawlers on here? Although it’s kind of based on a crawler platform it’s not actually the best of crawling cars either, but on pure looks alone, this super scale, great digger body fully licensed and the green roll cage very very hard to look to overlook. Indeed, if you’re into buying the odd shelf queen, then this is definitely the car for you, but on the plus side it is actually quite easy to modify. There are lots of aftermarket parts out on that. You can make this whole thing. Uh metal aluminum upgrades on there, so you can get the thing to take a lot more power in terms of a super scale, low cost monster truck. Then i would say this: this does tick a lot of boxes even down to the licensed bkt monster truck tires. Just like on the real thing in monster jam link to it below the video yours for 299.99.
