In this video. We are going take a look at something: different. Heres, the Turbo Racing C71 176 scale RC car., Before we begin Id like to thank banggood, as always for sending me this car for a review.. If you are interested, the link is in the description as always. Now lets get on with the video. Inside the box. We have a manual. And heres a quick start guide. That tells you everything you need to know. Next is the car. As you can see, it is tiny. And then there are 2 unpainted bodies, so you can paint them. However, you like. On to the transmitter it has detachable handle, which makes it compact and very easy to carry around., To put it together, just slide the top in like this. To open the battery compartment twist, the knob and pull it out.. Youll have to provide your own 4 AAA batteries for the transmitter. And finally theres a USB Type C. Charging cable and a clip to bind the car to other transmitter. Lets. Take a closer look at the car.. This is 176 scale RC car, with full proportional on both steering and throttle.. The function is like a proper RC car with forward brake and reverse.. The turning circle is 20cm. And it is much faster than the Mini, which is the previous version.. The body looks fantastic and very true to scale. Therere lights when you turn the car on. And there are also break lights as well, which will activate when you break.
, The wheelbase is 33.5mm. And the width is 25mm., As you can see its smaller than a Hotwheel.. Still, this is much bigger comparing to the Mini., And this is how it looks on the inside. Youll see that everything is on one single board and there’s not much room to modify.. The transmitter has all the basics steering and throttle trims, steering and throttle dual rates. Here’S the switch to reverse the steering. And here’s the switch to select the top speed between 20, 50 and 100.. This is essentially dual rate for the throttle.. However, on 20 and 50 percent, the dual rate dial doesnt work. – It only works on 100. And you can turn the dial to make it go slower than what you can do with the switch. To charge the car with the transmitter. First, youll need to extend the charging plug. Slide the switch and turn it clockwise. Then plug the car in.. Now, flick switch, the switch to charge and youll see the red light here. And once the light goes out, the charging is finished. Switch, the transmitter off and pull the car out. Now turn this switch anti clockwise to retract. The charging plug. Lets take a look at how it drives. It drives fantastically when its on a grippy surface., Its fast., The steering and the throttle are precise and its really fun to drive.. However, if you run it on a slippery surface, like a wooden table top, you cannot use all the throttle, otherwise it will bounce around and it is not really controllable.
Theres, no low speed control for this car.. Look at how much I have to pull the trigger to make the car move when its on 20 speed. And thats. The only annoying thing Ive found on this. Otherwise amazing, tiny, car.. The transmitter is upgradeable because the protocol is the same across Turbo Racing products from the Mini to Hobbyplus CR24.. So you can get something like this P52 transmitter and youll have a screen with all the settings. Youll ever need EPA Exponential model memory, you name it And you can have one radio to drive all the cars. And next let’s take a look at the price. At 80, 86, its quite expensive. But if you consider everything that goes into this car, its well worth the money., Finally, which one should you buy between this one and the Mini This one is longer.. It is faster. It handles better on a right, surface. And the wheels are bigger which make the car higher from the ground, so it’s less likely to get something stuck underneath.. So the question is: is the Mini still good to buy? Today, I would say: yes. The Mini works better on a wooden tabletop or somewhere. That is smooth, but doesnt have much grip. And it is plenty fast enough for such a tiny car.. But if you want to get a car with the Turbo Racing racetrack, then C71 is going to be more fun. And thats it for this video.
