My name is jason here on this channel. I do a lot of food and product reviews if you’re new here please hit that subscribe button today, we’re talking rc trucks, Music, so disclaimer. I bought this myself it wasn’t sent to me um. I was at the beach and somebody had one i don’t know if it was this model, but they were just ripping down the beach i was like. I need to get one of those, so i went to the hobby store and picked up this, the max from traxxas, so first off the receipt, so the truck itself 549 that i had to get you know: battery there’s, another 100 bucks battery charger, another 100 bucks. So 700 and like 750 dollars total for this, so hopefully i have some fun with it. Also, just let you know i’m, not an rc guy. I don’t i haven’t had one i’ve never drove one. Maybe when i was a kid so i’m new to this don’t know much about this. I just wanted something that was fast that could just rip up the beach and just haul butt. Now i could have got a cheaper model. You know they had ones for like 300 and some, but i figured you know if i get that and i get comfortable with it and then i’m gon na be like. Maybe i should get something better, so i just decided to go with this one let’s open this up and see what’s in here, it’s, so big.
I can barely there you go. Can you see me back here barely fit it on the screen. Let’S take a look at the box here, as we can see back here, we can get it to focus on there and of course now i can’t read it depending on the battery you put in here. The speed you’re gon na get and then has the skill level. I wanted to go here: skill level, five i’m, probably a skill level zero because i haven’t drove one so we’ll see. Can a noob drive one of these and control it? I hear it has training mode in it, so we’re gon na start there. I don’t know how fast training mode goes, we’ll find out together, but again, depending on the battery you put in. So if you got a 3s lipo, you could set it up depending how you set it up. You know, 40 to 45.. I went with the 4s lipo so i’m going to be in the 55 to 60 mile an hour range. Hopefully, when we get it going, it also went with the orange so let’s open this box up. I mean that’s the nice thing about this: the traxxas that’s it there’s no and the controller it’s put together and ready to go. Let’S get this off here. You’Re, probably yelling at me like what are you doing? I don’t know what i’m doing all right. So there we go the truck that is a nice.
Looking truck. Look at this suspension on there i’ll look from the front again total package. You know what 549 for this, then. I also had to get the battery another hundred bucks for this another hundred for the charger. Is it gon na be worth the price so that’s? The question is this worth like 750 dollars and can someone like me who’s, never drove an rc car before handle this thing and how much fun will it be to take to the beach we will find out so what comes in the bag? We got some directions here: some tools, some phone pieces. I should read about this. Where these things go. Do i need them? What do we got here? Warranty how to experience power, tsm, blah blah blah we’ll read that stuff later i’m, probably just going to try to drive it without reading any of that. Let’S get the top off here again because we need to get battery in here. The battery is going to have a little juice in it straight away, to put it in before i even charge it to put this in the truck and just run it dead. So we will do that. So i suppose i should read some directions, because i have no idea how to put the battery in here. Well, i will mess around with that. I will figure out how to get the battery in here run some juice out of it charge that battery up and take this out to the beach.
I think that’s, where i’m gon na take it first and see how it runs, see how it goes on training mode. How fast we get it going and then switch it over to regular mode and see if i can handle it being a noob, never drove an rc car, especially anything like this. You know maybe like a 20 car from walmart or something when i was a kid, but nothing of this caliber. Can i control it? Is it something that’s? You know if you have the cash, if you have the money and you want an rc, could you is this the model to go for the traxxas max? Let me get this thing set up and then we’ll head out to the beach and i’ll, see you guys there next all right so i’m. Finally out here, i finally made it to try this traxxas max out. It’S been probably two months since i first filmed the intro to this, when i opened up first got this uh remote control truck. I just thinking around coming out here this project kind of got put on the back burner so i’m. Finally, out here, gon na try it out see how it is see how fast it is. I got ta go pro hook to the top we’ll see if it stays on there. I i didn’t put on the right mount, but let’s drive this and see how fast this thing goes: Music, Music, Applause, Music, Applause, Music, all right, so the tracksix max there it is.
This thing is fast: it is a lot of fun it’s, a lot of work to keep it on its four wheels. So it takes a lot of practice because you go too fast. This thing’s flipping all over, even if you turn it, but uh it’s a fun fun vehicle expensive. Like i said, this is what like 800, i paid for this total package um it can go in the water, not completely soaking wet, but you can get it wet, run it in the dirt. The beach sand, the grass i wanted to get it down to the beach this year, but maybe next summer, but right here on the grass and stuff it’s a lot of fun. Like i said this thing is super fast. Let me know in the comments below, if you have one, what are some things, maybe i should do with it. I don’t want to destroy it, but any ideas what we can do with this track. Six packs, like i said at the beginning of the video guys, if you’re new here, please hit that subscribe button, hit that bell notification, so you’re notified every time.
