I have both of those. I have a traxxas slash, two wheel drive and arma typhoon. 3S and both of those are just awesome, i highly recommend them for what they are made for so guys. If you are looking to buy an rc car before you buy one, you have to do some research as in what is it made for? Is it a short horse truck or is it one that’s made for jumps or like sand dunes and stuff like that, for example, attracts a slash two wheel drive it’s perfect for outside rocks dirt, gravel and road, especially and so that’s what it’s made for, and it Is a short course truck now on arma typhoon 3s it’s it’s also made for like off roading, but it’s it’s more made for like hitting jumps and on road stuff. You know you can you can put up a little ramp and it’ll jump it and it’s and it’s got the speed it’s more of a speed vehicle. The slash is more of a slower vehicle, but it’s got more of the off road style. If you know what i mean now, the other thing you want to consider when you’re thinking about buying an rc is its price. Now, one of the most expensive rc cars out there is the traxxas x, maxx it’s around a thousand dollars. Now a thousand dollars is a lot of money and for me personally that’s too much money. I don’t think i’m ever gon na get a traxxas x maxx.
I might get a mini max, because now a mini max is half the price it’s about 500. You always want to consider money like the price, so the arm typhoon 3s is around about 300 to 350, depending on where you get it and attracts a slash. Two wheel: drive without a battery or charger is around about 150 to 200, also depending on where you get it, and also guys you don’t want to get a cheap, rc that’s like 40 dollars. I got one of those once a long time ago and they just don’t work and so before i knew of the rc hobby, like the professional grade rc’s, i always bought like 40 to 60 rc’s and they were fine, because i didn’t know that there were hobby Grade rc cars, so i couldn’t compare them with other higher grade rc, but they would only last for about a month to two months and depending on how often you use them and how hard you use them and it was fun, but it didn’t work that well On grass and grass was it’s, probably the one of the most popular obstacles, so that kind of made it a little bit difficult to enjoy. So what i’m trying to say is don’t spend too much money on an rc. But if you don’t spend enough, then you might end up with a cheaper rc that might not be as good quality as a hobby grade. Rc and so rc’s are great they’re fun and if you buy a hobby grade rc, usually if you buy a traxxas or arma those things last for a long period of time and all the upgrades are online and at your local hobby, shop and stuff and that’s.
What that’s my favorite thing about it! So if i break something on the truck, i can just go to the hobby shop or look online and directly buy that piece and then put it together and that’s what’s, really nice about a hobby grade rc. So the next thing i’m going to be talking about is batteries and chargers for your rc car. Now the most popular rc battery that’s out there is the lipo battery. You get a 1s lipo, a 2s lipo, a 3s lipo, a 6s lipo and an 8s lipo. Now i have a 2s lipo and it’s pretty fast. I run it on my arma typhoon 3s and so armor typhoons that are 3s can go on a 2s or 3s lipo, and so lipos are nice they’re good for storing. So if you don’t use it for about a couple months, then they work just fine afterwards and that’s what’s really nice about them and you get them almost anywhere because they’re so popular, then you get nim batteries they’re, like lipos they’re, just a little different. The only thing about them is um they’re, a little slower than lipos and also they’re, not as good for storing. So, if you stored it for a couple of months, it wouldn’t handle as well afterwards as a lipo would so with rcs. You get the controllers. You get batteries and all those stuff, but they’re not always included with the rc, so you can have the rc and the controller, but it might not come with a charger or battery now that’s, the most common thing, some rc’s out there, some expensive ones just come With the rc and then you have to put your own electronics and engine and all that stuff in there and you have to buy your own controller.
And if you have a wide budget, that’s, probably pretty good. And if you know what you’re doing with rc’s, then you can pick out your own motor and stuff and put together if you’re, a beginner and you’re looking for something simple and something that’ll work and that’s not too cheap and that it will last long and that It’S durable, then i would definitely go with the traxxas. Slash two wheel drive four wheel drive. The two wheel drive is a little less expensive and i really like it. I’Ve never had the four wheel drive before, but it’s four wheel drive so that’s. Why it’s more expensive and that’s probably why it can also be a little better, but my first rc was a slash: two wheel, drive and it’s just been great, so i would highly recommend it if you’re looking for a rc car that has everything included, except for The battery and charger, of course, and that’s not too expensive and that lasts long, so yeah. Thank you guys for watching.
