Money can buy unless you are just a blind arma fan or a blind traxxas fan. Those of us that can see the rest of the world, this really could be one of the best 10 skill bashers out there. The one we’re driving today is the mega. This is the 550 brushed Applause motor. We like this one because people getting into the hobby the one a nice hobby grade truck, might want to buy this to start off with those of us that are just getting in the hobby and don’t have a ton of money to spend. You want your money to go as far as it possibly can, so you get a taste of the 10th skill. Four wheel drive world and if you like it, you can buy arma’s upgrade parts. The brushless motor the brushless esc system completely go 3s instead of nickel metal hydride or 2s. These words might seem like big confusing words if you’re new to the hobby, but this is one of the best beginner platforms. You can start on Music today. We’Ve got some snow left over we’re gon na drive this and bash. It me and my wife. We both love trucks, abby likes these things more than me. I think, most of the time so she’s going to get behind the wheel, a lot we’re going to drive and have some fun. You see there’s a little ramp back there. We kind of blends in right now: yeah might do a little ramping, but we just want to drive this and test it and see how it holds up to a little bash session in the cold.

Here is a really cool thing about this truck you guys. This is how it comes. This is ready to run comes with this battery and a charger. The charger is a really slow, trickle charger, it’s going to take hours and hours to charge. This thing it’s, basically like an overnight kind of charger. Although we don’t recommend you charge unattended, okay, you can get better batteries for this. Here, you go. Nice muddy, used, 2s lipo. Okay. This is a smart battery there’s, a lot of cool things to know about that they self storage, charge, they’re, also, basically, self balancing there’s. Just a lot of really cool things about this battery, but you can run just about any 2s lipo on this. You want and it’s super easy to switch. You got this little jumper right here, there’s a little chart and it tells you if you want to go from nickel metal hydride. You pull this little plastic piece out and you put it over on the left side and now you’re ready to run a lipo battery. Now we’re running the included nickel metal hydride first we’re, probably just going to run that for a couple minutes. So you guys can get a taste of how it runs ready to run out of the box and then we’re going to switch over to one of our favorite batteries ever and get a much longer run time a little bit more speed and power. And i recommend you guys pick one of these batteries up too, as one of your first upgrades for this truck it’ll make a big difference so with the beginner in mind and just the hobby, because we love this let’s try, Music, yeah, all right, that’s kicking up The snow nice whoa, i almost i almost fell how’s the trim on it.

Okay, so this is a ready to run four wheel. Drive monster truck by arma one of the world’s biggest best brands. Is that full throttle on your nickel metal Music? Give us like a full throttle blast buy, so we got a feel of the speed, pretty good, oh getting close to the ramp that’s, not bad it’s, a good looking truck too. I mean everybody knows arma and you’re, either a fan boy to a certain company and you hate them or or you love them. Are you gearing up to ramp? She has oh just missed it. Just missed the ramp, all right, i’ll bet. She hits it this time. Here we go here, we go nice, oh missed! You missed one more time and i get to go: hey it’s off roading, really well that’s, pretty thick snow because the grass is tall. I know it. Doesn’T seem like it, but that is pretty thick snow. All right. Nice just perfect, absolutely perfect, good job. I like it because i don’t i don’t have to recover it. So that’s, awesome, Music, all right! Those are pretty sweet. Ramps and i’ll be honest, i’m surprised at how well this is powering through the snow whoa. I almost fell. Oh Music, nice. I have got to be careful on this ice. I keep almost falling. Those are some good snow. Donuts i’m impressed with this a little ready to run so tell me, you drive a ton of ground vehicles.

What do you think about this it’s fun? For brushed it’s fun, it’s, a good it’s, a good price for brush too it’s a good intro. I think so. Intro major name brand hobby grade it’s, not just like intro toy grade, so they make the uh the voltage too, and the voltage is about 100 bucks. It’S, cheap but it’s, two wheel, drive and uh. Some people have complained about the electronics in them. Now we don’t actually own a granite voltage. We’Ve had a voltage in the past. What was it, though? Abby? Do you remember? We had it called the armor voltage, but was it like a buggy or short course truck? It was like okay, they don’t do that one anymore. Do they i’m, not sure, but i think it’s really cool that arma let’s go down here by the ramp. Or can you do it down there? Okay, oh my god: oh you’re hung up well i’ll, tell you what let’s actually switch over to the lipo and show you guys. I’M i’m impressed i’m genuinely impressed with how the nickel metal hydride is running yeah, but let’s let’s uh let’s knock some of this snow off of the truck and put the lipo in and bring it to life. All right abby’s got the gloves on so actually she she works on the ground vehicles. I don’t know if you guys know this, but we break stuff, abby she’ll get in and repair him. I fix the airplanes and she’ll.

Do the trucks look at this that’s? Why it was going so slow there at the end, let’s give it a little knock we’ll get most of that snow out. Just like that packs in there nice and tight look how much look move the truck for a second look, how much snow it was holding! No enough for no no no i’m, not bundled up warming up. I only got one layer on all right. We got most of it out as much as probably what’s going to come out right now. Okay, fair enough, kick switch, take out the old nickel metal. Here we go lipo and it’s just as easy. You move that little guy over to the left side, and now it is lipo ready power, the radio on and power that on and just like that, we’re running a lipo battery. I still got some snow in there. There we go look at the the surfboards having to like push the snow it’s like doing servo angels. You can literally see the mark in the snow servo angel right there, a girl in her monster truck and a pile of snow. All right, oh nice! That really comes to life with that 2s lipo it’s amazing. The difference that can make it just has way more punch and acceleration get that thing over here. Oh so much speed that it can roll itself yeah nice when it hits that snow. It just kicks it up, yeah.

So do you guys, like the red and white look or do you like the uh? I think it’s, a black and blue color scheme i’m. Actually, a pretty big fan of this white red. It looks good in the snow, Music, nice, Music, Music, so Music, oh well, abby just laid down the law on me. She said i’m not allowed to drive this because i’ll break it i’m not allowed to ramp it. But i can drive it. Okay, so you’ve been ramping on 2s and it is insane. You know what there’s a big difference between being the camera person that stands down by the ramp and the person that gets to drive it well, that is heavy that’s like doubled. The weight yeah here let’s try to that’s, got ta help it’s holding a lot of snow inside there. It is nice, oh why’d, you do that too heavy to flip, oh nice, off the camera good, even after she stopped in that thick snow powers right through it. You know i really impressed with this for the 550 mega, this thing is sweet. I was not expecting this much fun out of the brush setup wimpy, but she’s smiling so that’s. All it matters uh. You know what’s, really cool, there’s, no snow sticking to those tires. It just knocks it right off, and i mean that could just be quality of snow but it’s getting good traction. Nice all right, get it again, full throttle ready for a full throttle, blast, yeah, that’s, good.

All right, let’s go steal the controller from abby for just a minute. Can i break it on flat level ground? We will see while she’s running she’s not gon na. Let me drive it watch the ice okay, so she likes the truck she’s. Trying to keep me from the controller all right, let me drive it for one minute i won’t hit the ramp Laughter come on. I think it’s about time. You’Ve had a video where i run the battery down okay. Well, so at least, why do you like it? So much it’s fun. I like monster trucks. Yeah. There needs to be more monster trucks in the world yeah. This is it’s nice isn’t it for 550 brushed yeah. Does it make you want to get a brushless setup in there now right. You gon na write your name: oh gosh, no i’m, joking there’s, not enough clean snow, abby’s just destroyed it all and it just powers through the thick tall grass down there too that’s crazy. It only gets hung up. Occasionally. Oh, is the battery dead? No it’s? Not what really you swear? Yes, wow. You ran the battery down. I mean look at this thing. It looks like it just got out of the alaskan tundra i’m going to say that battery’s not dead, it probably is just frozen. Let’S lock the snow out and give it a minute we’ll see if it uh. If we can run all right, yeah, it’s, probably i’m, pretty sure i ran the battery down but holy moly yeah that’s a lot of us.

Well, you stole the show this time i didn’t even get to touch the controller, so tell us why you like it because i didn’t, let you drive it and it still is in one piece um. I just like a simple monster truck um. This one, i think, is a pretty good speed, not too fast to where you’re gon na like demolish the truck, because that happens sometimes they’re faster than their own good, and so it was just nice to have a simple rc car. It reminds me of a lot of our first rc cars that we had on our channel and i just think it’s a great way to start the hobby. Now before i let you guys go. You may have noticed these beautiful stickers on here and i think that’s. What helped hold it together in one piece? Remember they uh, they increase your cool points per sticker by at least two, and so all of our patrons know how to get these. But if you want to set up some sweet, rc sailors stickers on your rc’s they’re, waterproof and everything i’ll have a link in the description box below on our patreon page. You can sign up and just that five dollar tier or above we’ll get you some stickers. You are not allowed to throw that. No, you better start running. No, i didn’t get to drive the truck i’ll. Give you five seconds. No five! Oh my gosh four don’t fall beautiful yeah.

You missed! She has enough snow off of that i’m gon na block it with the camera. The next time she has enough snow to throw three snowballs at me. You’D think i did something to make her mad okay. Well, there you have it guys, it’s been forever since we’ve done the arma granite or really most armor things. We just wanted to get this out and have some fun with it. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below and all the good stuff is linked down there. This is a great ready to run setup, but if you want a cheap upgrade, we recommend that battery and we’ll have a couple of our favorite chargers down there too. So a really great way to start the hobby, and if you have about 100 more dollars, you can just start brushless right out of the gate. Everything’S linked down there tonight was fun. I didn’t even get to drive it. I had fun, it was a blast. I got snowballs thrown at me and i had to recover when she wrecked, but that’s just part of the fun i am jealous, though, that i didn’t get to drive anyway. I think the big guy upstairs for all the good we have in our life and the bad so that we can appreciate the good. So thank you, god. We also want to say a massive thanks to our patreon supporters, because without you guys, our channel wouldn’t exist.

You better believe that we probably might have stayed bundled up in the warm today instead of coming out and recording, but you guys motivate us and our love for the hobby paired with your motivation makes for some fun videos. So, thank you so much to our patreon supporters, guys all the good stuff’s linked in the description box below and we will have our last arma granite. Video popping up right about now. That was probably a while ago have fun watching that that’s going to be either really cringe worthy because they all are or super fun. We’Ll see you over Music.
