They call this color fire because it is pretty lit. What’S also pretty lit, i think, is the fact that you can win this truck uh. I will get into that tiny bit later. You can also check out all the links in the video description box to see how you can win one of these trail runner four by fours, because element is actually giving away five of them, and this this truck is one of them. After i have done my thing to it now, this truck in itself is not new because they have already released a white one. This uh new fire collar, however, is brand new. These boxes i’m, not sure if you are familiar with the element, rc and their box art, but it continues on the inside. So the inside. You could turn this inside out and turn it into a scale garage which i think is a pretty cool. This new red version is different from the white version on the inside of the box. The box uh further contains, of course, a ton of information about the independent front suspension about what motor about what electronics, and also about the incredible amount of accessories that are included. So you could keep it as it is, which is a factory stock. You could turn it into a weekend warrior or you can turn it into an off road trail rig, which really is almost like full overland style, which is most likely the style that i will be going for with uh.
With this trail runner. 4X4. I’M not saying my trail runner, 4×4, because it could be your trail runner. 4X4 um. I think we have looked at the box quite enough right now. Let’S uh have a look at some of the other stuff. I will be using some stickers just to add some extra flair to this body and also seeing that we are actually on a limited budget. We’Re only allowed to use 20 bucks in addition to everything that we find inside the box uh. Thankfully, this truck comes with a ton of accessories, so over here you see a snorkel, you see a roof rack. You also see a larger battery tray so also on some of the technicalities. You could address those and make it uh a bit more suited to your needs. All of that stuff, pretty cool. Also, some leds included not sure where those go, but seeing that all of this stuff is included is absolutely very cool. It also comes with this pretty familiar looking radio xp 130.. I guess if you are familiar with associated or element rc trucks, that this is not a strange radio to you really easy to set up when it comes to endpoints trim. All that stuff has a nice phone wheel, lays in the hands really well takes four double a batteries and uh 2.4 gigahertz. So you have full control of your rig out on rocks. If you love manuals as well. Of course, a manual is included.
The only thing is that the mirrors are included in this bag, the rest of the accessories, including that bag i’m pretty proud of myself for actually just noticing that i already took the body clips out. I also took the zip ties off because there was a ton more cardboard inside of this box just to have a closer look at this fire color all of the element – rc trucks that i’ve seen so far, so, whether that be the enduro sendero, the trail, walker Or the other uh trail, runner version are non metallic colors and this is their first metallic color truck and i think it looks amazing. So if you really inspect it close, you can see that there’s some sparkle going on in this fire color. I think there’s a lot of cool detail going on on this body. This is a non licensed body, but it’s very reminiscent of a toyota 4runner. If you would add some of the knight customs 3d printed stuff to the front, you can turn it into a full blown toyota 4runner, look alike. It is a great base to start customizing, your own truck from a ton of plastic accessories. Pre installed like, for example, these fender flares door handles a tailgate spoiler, some windshield wipers. So there’s really not a lot to add. You would think a grill piece. It looks great the b pillar as well is uh done up in a plastic i’m. Thinking that i do have a couple of ideas of what i would like to do, and especially paintwise.
I think those door areas really lend themselves for some some additional detail now. Matt 20 bucks will completely go to the outside of the body rather than to anything on the chassis, because the chassis on this element, enduro trail runner, is actually pretty ridiculously well specced as it is, you can tell in the front it has that independent front suspension. It also has some aluminum body shocks with aluminum adjustment rings and plastic caps. These shocks are actually really good. It has a ton of a steering throw for something that is independent, front suspension, and if you want to see how this actually works in some greater detail, i will make sure there’s a link to my independent front suspension, install video, which i did in the past. On my enduro sendero, and i will make sure that link is over here in the right top hand corner of your screen, so you can have a look at it. This is a really nifty kit, a really nifty conversion, seeing that it comes included and is ready to run already pre installed is a really nice. It does take away a tiny bit of the appreciation that you should have for the amount of engineering that went into this universal come pre installed, and then it runs these tiny 1.55 sized wheels and tires general licensed tires. I think having those licensed is actually a really good decision so having some license stuff on the truck like this and then some well more fantasy related stuff that you could turn into something that looks licensed, i think, is trick.
Five slots 16 turn brushed motor with a water resistant esc. This battery tray is relatively short, so this is for your more compact battery packs. If you want to run a larger battery pack, a larger battery tray does come included in the accessory bag. This steering servo at some point element prided themselves in having the highest spec torque on any ready to run servo in the trail truck i’m, not sure if that’s still the case, but these metal gear servos. They have never failed to impress me so seeing that it comes included in this ready to run as well is really cool. This is a stealth x, gearbox now, but this stealth x gear box does, is it has six percent overdrive, so your front wheels turn a tiny bit faster than your rears, making your truck a bit more agile, so it makes it easier to climb, but it also Makes it a bit easier to turn you could install the optional gear which you see in the accessories bag again, and by doing so, you would have close to 12 percent overdrive from the top of my head um overall. This is really well laid out. Trail truck really well engineered uh. Some of the stuff is really not all that surprising. I think like, for example, these sea channel steel frame rails, but seeing the way that it is laid out and the fact that it has independent trend. Suspension is really cool.
Another nice detail, i think, is this magnaflow exhaust that comes up pre installed on this chassis, adding a tiny bit of extra detail. Now, speaking of detail, that’s exactly what i will be doing to this body i’m – not quite sure, yet what i want to add, but one of the things of course will be some additional paint i’m not going to go completely crazy because i cannot add 17 different Colors within a 20 dollar budget, but perhaps one or two additional things will be possible and then seeing that uh all these accessories come in this bag. I think that i will be going all out as well and adding at least stuff like the snorkel and the roof rack to see how mine will turn out. Please follow along also we’ll go check out my instagram and elements instagram and all of the other guys that are customizing. These trail trucks for the element, rc giveaway, go, give them a follow. I will make sure that all of their accounts are linked in the video description box, so you can have a closer look and also get informed on how to win. I hope this also shows you that it really pays off to subscribe because you’re, if you’re, watching us in that 2022, you are out of luck because then by then, this truck is already given away and uh completely scratched up, hopefully with somebody having a ton of Fun with it, if you have any questions or comments, let me know in the comment section: we’ll try to get back to you.
