I ordered this back when i made my first restoration video on that jeep and it’s. Taking this long to come in so now, we’re, finally making a video on it so yeah this was like. I think it cost me a total of like 110 canadian, so not bad! Actually so we’ll have to see you know you kind of get what you pay for, but we’ll see um it’s, 1 12 scale or at least that’s what it says in the box and, as you can see it says, crawler high speed, drifting vehicle, which you know Both of those things don’t go together, but maybe that’s the brand um. As you can see on the side, you get a pretty cool picture of it if it wasn’t all this packaging on it, but uh yeah there’s another one on the side um see on the back. I ordered the gray one. You could actually get the white one too, but i noticed that pretty much everyone that bought one of these on the internet got them in white. So i kind of wanted to be different, so we’re gon na unbox it um, i think it comes with batteries. I hope so so uh yeah let’s get into it, so the box is kind of beat up, which i mean it’s, expected to be honest from banggood, but let’s see what we got inside. Oh, we got ta cut these too all right moment of truth. So there it is it’s, actually looking really good um see if i can get it out.
Oh there we go wow, este, actually really heavy surprisingly, which is good. That weight is good, get this bag off it and there she is um. You can see it got lots of suspension, which is nice a lot of flex on it right there um it looks like the lights. Might, work actually um. I think the doors open yep, so this was actually oh. I don’t know what’s on the side there. If that’s supposed to be like that it’s kind of weird see that anyway it doesn’t matter um, i actually bought the one with the rubber treads. There was a version that was pretty much the same amount of money. It came with metal treads too, but i was reading in the reviews that said that it burned out the engine and most people that i saw had the rubber, so i just went with the rubber, so the bottom looks like it’s a push button for on and Off which is different, în regulă, so we’re going to cut this out and open her up and try it out let’s see what else we had in the box. Actually so we had a instruction booklet i’m, not going to read, and this which i’m guessing is the controller crank that open and there we go feels good. So it takes three double a’s, which is expected power on and off. So i can’t help but notice that there’s not a battery in this box, which concerns me because i ordered it with a battery, so hopefully it’s, tucked up inside of here so yeah everything was inside the bottom, which was nice because i was starting to get scared.
A little bit but it’s all here um got our battery. We get plugged in and we’re gon na plug it into my computer and let it charge and i’ll see you guys when this is done. Eu sunt.. Actually gon na read the book to see how long it says that i have to charge for so, for you guys, it’ll be a couple seconds, but for me, it’s gon na be a few hours i’m sure so i’ll see you, then all right guys. Here we are get the controller. It is cold today, it’s a cold canadian day, but hopefully the battery will do all right. We’Re going to do our first test, drive i’m driving one hand, so let’s see look at her. Go it just shreds up the snow it’s not extremely fast, but it’s, also slippery out. I can’t keep up to it, walking see if it does any drifts. Laughter, oh that’s, great all right, Să, try taking it up here, Muzica. There we go that’s right in the deep snow Music. Oh man, look at it go that’s a machine now it says that the battery only lasts 15 minutes so we’ll see but i’m very impressed with it. I was having troubles so it turned out. I just needed proper batteries and the remote that was the problem. Big surprise: let’s take it in the woods this thing’s having no issues at all, which is a nice change from that jeep, because the jeep sucked Applause, if you do see it spinning it all like when i was trying to climb up in the first part of The driveway that’s, just because i mean underneath this little layer of snow, is like ice, so it is pretty slippery like i can walk on it and it won’t break so, but it’s just doing its thing, look at it go.
Aplauze. You’Ve got a little deep right. Acolo – and it just goes right on through so it has fully proportional uh throttle, which is nice that’s. Definitely a plus um the steering is to an extent, but it’s also tread so it’s kind of hard to tell but it’s, not all the way. If you want to steer just a little bit, you can oh, do we get her stuck not at all, you can also make it do 360s. Bine, if it’s not in the deep snow, so i say we take it for a test up the big hill. Behind my house, so we got ta take a right here. Man it’s, not even an issue, this thing’s awesome. Oh look, it’s got his bumper stuck. Oh it stuck itself good on that tree like i did that i’ll have to rescue it. She is getting filthy. I hope she’s uh, waterproof to an extent i’ll be sure to give it a good dry off when i go in so as you can see either some four wheelers or snowmobiles have been through here, so some deep ruts let’s see how it does i’m gon na. Try and just crawl over this one, oh should’ve, hit that with speed, definitely should hit that with speed. It doesn’t care, though it just keeps going. Oh, we almost went in the ditch, so i have these great big hills behind my house. They’Re called mud dumps because we used to be a mining, town and there’s a bunch of mine shafts, so they dug up all the dirt so there’s, these great big mount well, not mountains, they’re, just little hills but great big piles of mud that we can climb Up a lot of people use it for a four wheeler trail or a sliding hill, but we’re gon na try and see if it’ll climb it.
I don’t think it’s going to have any issue it’s, just a beast! Look at it go as i get it stuck. Not at all, so the only issue i’m seeing is when you’re trying to turn it since it’s kind of loose snow it’s having trouble moving with just one track, but i mean, if you were on flat ground. This would have no issue have to crawl out it’s. Starting to get steep it’s struggling, they might have to just crawl come on. Maybe we’ll go in. The four wheeler tread here might have a little bit better Music yeah there. We go it’s hard to steer it because my thumb barely reaches Applause. I think it’ll make it, Deşi, if it tries hard enough so close to the top we’re getting stuck we’re gon na go very light very slow and try and crawl up it there. She goes oh, no off the road. There we go yeah there. She goes it’s. Probably my driving too not gon na lie. If he could have stayed in the track, it would have made it up. Oh i flipped it. I tried to climb that and i did not want to do that. I’Ll flip it over see if it will climb that. I doubt it yeah, so now we get to go down the hill and hopefully i don’t absolutely destroy it, but i think it’ll be fun. Just get turned around here all right down the mountain. Here we go yeah it’s kind of my driving.
I just got to get used to it because your tracks actually go backwards to steer so it’s kind of kind of difficult to steer. While you drive that’s, also why it drifts so good and obviously it’s gon na have no problems on the downhill. Oh, this is one of the coolest things i’ve ever owned, all right back to the rut, let’s see if it can cross it this time. Oh that’s, not good yeah. We got it stuck all right, Voi, pull it out. I’M gon na set it up. So i can cross this gap. Let’S! Try it oh yeah right across this time. I just had to hit with some speed – and you know what it said: 15 minutes but i’ve been recording this clip alone for 12 minutes now, and it still seems to have a lot of power so so for a first budget rc. I can’t do anything but recommend this thing’s wicked, although something’s running out of battery, though because it’s only going so far and stopping so, we might have hit that might hit that limit i’m gon na see. If i figured out so yeah guys, it’s just kind of hopping and stopping so, i think we finally ran out of batteries. It won’t even move anymore really, but i mean that’s good. It said 15 Minute. We definitely got 15 minutes out of it and uh it’s covered in snow, and i mean i don’t know a lot about batteries, but i know that the jeep hates the cold, so i mean definitely doesn’t help i’m sure so overall, i’m pretty impressed.
So here we go guys took the treads off and there she is drying out the wood stove just cranked and uh she’s, giving her a good try and there you have it. I hope you all enjoyed today’s video, make sure to sub for more rc drift tank in the snow and doing other things, desigur, after the snow melts, maybe take it mudding, maybe take it crawling we’ll see um. If you have any ideas on what you want to see next, with this leave a comment down below because i’d love to hear what you guys want to see, i have a few things up.
