This truck and uh put it on the trail off camera um just trying to get a feel for it, and everything like that crawled it around the house a little bit set up a few little rock piles in here and there i did put it on a Trail um at the pond behind our house and uh it’s kind of difficult uh. I found another weak point because it’s broken now, but um it’s. Okay, i got parts coming but that’s the that’s, the problem with getting these parts from uh these uh trucks from china and stuff like that there’s nothing wrong with getting stuff from china. I don’t you know i don’t have no problem with it. It’S just uh the amount of time that it takes to ship to the states, it’s, just a pain man, you just can’t, go get parts like you want to so that’s, one downside of it, but i’mma pull you in close here. So you can see what’s going on um, so this little plastic piece it mounts on top of the axle is broken, so here’s the rear one. Okay, so see this little brace. That goes across the top here. Um there’s a stronger brace, but it didn’t come with that. Didn’T come with the stronger one came with this one. This is the original one, so it’s broke here at the front and that’s because of all the weight, the extra weight that’s on the axles and everything like that and that’s pretty much the weak point on it.
So you know one thing: i’m: finding about the stuff from china, you know it’s hard to say, it’s, good quality it’s. It is good quality to a certain extent. You know they doing a lot, but then you know you’re missing these weak points right here. So once you start putting uh granite, these are heavier axles than what the km comes with and, like i said i i use these because i messed up the km axles, so don’t wear that i’ll put that back together, no problem but it’s not riding right now. Anyway, so um, you can see real good where it’s separated from the plastic right there it’s completely broken so um. You know that’s that’s, the issue i’m having um stuff just is breaking like you know, pretty much everything i got from china right now is broken or has broken and it’s, not that big of a deal that it broke but um now i got ta wait. 10 to 15 business days to get a new part that’s what we had right there, guys um. You know i hadn’t had it that long. It did do really good. While it was on the trail. I ended up having to come back and um redo the the gear inside of here um as far as uh re lock, tighten because the the grub screw backed out, and so these were just turning. You know it wasn’t grabbing the gear inside of there. So i had to go back in there re tighten that down put some more loctite on it.
Put some more loctite on these screws here and um know that worked for that. But then, like i say you know, once you start strengthening some parts, the the other the next week part is going to show and that’s pretty much with anything. Even with you know, real cards um, you know they’ll, you know they’ll fail once you once you start strengthening other parts you’ll find the next week the weak link until you get everything strong, and this was the weak link um, but i do have um the parts Coming to fix this, but as of right now only thing i got now is the c14, which i’ll show you here in a second, so here’s the c14, which i had stolen the bump off of. But i think it just looks better on this truck and this truck uh it. This was just the plastic kit, but i took the axles. I messed up the axles on this, so i took them off of here off the um, the cam version and then put them on the plastic version, no wheel weights or anything like that. The tires not even glued it’s real nice, but i did have to since i messed up the the rear um gear. I didn’t know what to do with it. I end up drilling it out um. This is it here. I just haven’t put it back in there. Yet but i i did fix it, i think, but uh these are pla.
The the stock um axles that’s inside this housing, um there’s metal gears, but the ends are are plastic and the bearings that’s in there are plastic plastic drive shafts here 180 motor um, but i do have the metal links and stuff from the km kit um. It seems i’ve lost a mirror there, but um but yeah i don’t have um esc or i don’t have a radio in here, for it it’s got the regular esc. The this is a actually a 10 amp that i got from banggood, but when i get in, i don’t feel like taking this apart to get enough to get the receiver out of there yet so i’m gon na leave it alone. Until i get, i got another receiver coming in three to eight days. Business days from banggood fly sky receiver. I could have ordered it from amazon, but i just got it from banggood and then i’ll probably roll this until the parts get here for that. But until then guys that’s it because you know these trucks are nice man and uh everybody’s, giving them good grave reviews. But if you upgrade them like this, just know that you know or when you order them just know that you need to order some spare parts and to me i think you know the cam is nice, but you don’t need to start that way. You can start with the regular plastic kit and get some metal drive shafts, and i think that’ll reduce the amount of stretch that’s on these.
This plastic piece that’s down here on the bottom it’s not going to be as heavy right. You can get some some some metal drive, shafts wheel weights, and i think that that would do the job and just go with customizing from then on. You don’t have to worry about all that stuff breaking, because once it breaks now you, unless you have the the parts laying around now you’re waiting around so that’s what it is guys. I hope that this was helpful. This was my first kit build. I do like the truck but, like i say, the the problem is just waiting for parts, but uh you’ll see some motors truck because when i get it fixed i’m gon na run it um and then eventually here you know when i can get all parties to Agree, i’ll get some some domestic made vehicles, or at least um something where i can get some parts readily available here and it might not be a crawler, probably be a little basher, not a little basher but i’m looking to go 110 scale or something like that And get that done with that so that’s it guys. I know how to say that already. Thank you guys for watching.
