Pentru mine, oricum, uh number one it’s, as i said earlier, it’s my first team, lawson rc car and it’s a it’s, a little beast. I’Ve got to be honest, and second, this is my first ever channel collaboration um, which will get into towards the end of this video, so it’s uh it’s going to be pretty cool so before we start the video properly. I just need to give a massive. Thank you to sven heinkel, really hope. I pronounce your name right correctly. My friend um sven’s, from stuttgart in germany and he emailed me ages ago, and he asked for my address said he wanted to send me something um. So we got into a little bit of a dialogue and he basically said loves what look: what loves, what i do loves the content i make and he’d like to just send me a little um, something just to say. Vă mulțumesc. Um didn’t tell me what it was, so i had no idea when i opened the box what i was looking at and and even when i pulled the car out. I still didn’t know what i was looking at, dar um, so so cool, so let’s get into the car it’s, so so cool it’s, so cute isn’t it. So obviously i know nothing about this. What you say. I know nothing about nothing, you’re, absolutely right, but i generally know absolutely zero about these, so i’ve done a little bit of research, but obviously you guys.
The thing i will start out by saying is when i got this and i did a little bit of research. I had no idea how big this these this 118th rc circuit was absolutely zero idea and i didn’t also realize what this car was. This is the original team losing mini t 118 Scară. Two wheel drive off road racer, Deci 2003, 18 years old um. Deci, din nou, ştii, and the thing is as well to have one in this condition and the original one just makes it mega cool, so um yeah again doing my research, i found a fantastic article from live rc. I will put the link to the article in this video description. Should anyone want to have a quick read of it? Este., not a massive article, but it’s got a great history from this and then the way it followed all the way through. Deci, as i said, there was other 118 scale cars around before this one, but this one seems to be in the game. Changer from what i’ve researched and after that um. This one actually runs on four triple air batteries. I say triple a or double a it’s, a bigger one of the two. I always get mixed up um and it came ready to run but soon after the year after in 2004 team laws, and then lots of other manufacturers really started going in time. With these brushless systems, fancy electronic speed controllers, much better radio gear and then really tweaking the chassis, and these this these things 118 scale became a racing thing which i had no idea proper tracks off road tracks and i believe world championships as well, so uh got Ta be honest, i had no idea that that was a thing um, so it is mega cool to be honest, um that’s about all as much as i know about it, but obviously we’ll get into the car and now you’re going to see just how intricate and What this car actually has um it’s quite a bit more involved and if you’ve not seen one before this is quite a bit more involved than you’re, probably going to expect so let’s whip the camera over and we’ll have a look at the car and we’ll have A look at the other goodies they sent me to so this is what i’ll show you.
în primul rând, Deci, am spus, it’s a ready to run set um old school 27 meg radio gear uses crystals um. I also got the manual for it, which is absolutely superb and within that we have a an exploded diagram with all the part numbers and things, so that makes that rather cool. Indeed, Dreapta, let’s have a look at this bad boy. I love this thing. Deci, first up body, shell, este, basically polycarbonate. As far as i can tell pretty sturdy little thing, Deşi, and um as you can see, it’s in absolutely pristine condition, which is uh. I would imagine pretty rare for a 2003 model and then we have a chasse he’s. Just one of the coolest things i’ve ever seen, um just holding the thing with being so intricate and small, because when i full first pulled this out, i was like oh wow. Evident, it was so small and you’re thinking, it’s kind of something you’re gon na like run around your living room, but then, when you get into it and you see how it’s being made it’s like oh, this is actually something else metal drive, shafts differential. I even believe and we’ll take that cover off. I even believe it’s got a slipper clutch, which is just insane so well. Let me get my bearing so there’s a little clip there body clip if i pull that out. This section just lifts up on a hinge, and this is your battery tray for either four triple a’s or double airs.
I always get them wrong way around and that’s. How it came as standard, but quite soon about 2004 onwards, they started doing nim packs and then now you obviously can get lipo packs, not sure what size that motor is, if it’s a 380, it could be smaller. I have no idea um i’ll whiz, that clip out and we’ll with the gearbox cover off and uh, see what’s underneath that right so cover off, and yes, it has a slipper clutch. That is just immense. I love it so, as i said, there’s a body clip at the front here which allows that to fold up and underneath that that’s the standard ready to run battery box, you get with it for your four batteries, so it’s very easy to get going and we’ve. De asemenea, if i said that we’ve got a built in um receiver, electronic speed controller unit and then um just under this section, we should probably not really be able to able to see we’ve got one of those micro servers. Just absolutely superb what a thing: where did you say the bits he sent me as well? I’Ve got some upgrades for it, which is insane but it’s like um. It really is put together like a one tenth car, i mean i read to you earlier that it’s um, the scaled down version of the oh, i don’t know if i did say that it’s a scaled down version of a triple xt, Um, stadium, truck and that’s.
A truck i don’t know, but looking at this, you can fully believe it. So let’s have a look at what else i’ve got with it. So i’ve got another set of um wheels and tires for it, chrome ones. This time, um with sort of more i’d, say sort of raw tread um tires on them as opposed to the um. What would you call that off road tires um? This is so cool. Let me see if i can get the camera down on this Laughter. Oh wow so circle, so oh there’s, another server, wow didn’t, know that um a high tech. I guess you call them micro servers i’ve, never seen a server that small in my life um and then we have. What make is it a noz ram, brushless motor for it that’s just insane isn’t it now? This is used, so obviously we’ll have to test all this stuff. Um brushless used but not tested, and then we’ve got the um. Is it matching yeah matching nozram um brushless speed controller for it? Oh, my goodness me, if that thing’s working this little bad boy, is going to be absolutely ballistic. Um. Nwo, if you’ve not seen how quick these things are on like one or two s, Sunt., not sure what you use on a brushless setup go and check out, go put it into youtube and see some of the running videos. These things are just so quick. It is unbelievable and then in the next box, we’ve got a lot of spares um new brand new set of arms for it.
Now the eagle eyed of you might have spotted something yeah these. So these are alloy oil chocks for it. Oh, my goodness, mate. So i’m guessing the car might be friction friction shocks i never i never looked. Obviously it makes sense yeah so now we’ve got a proper set of oil dampers for it as well. Oh, my goodness me not sure what that is. Eu sunt., not saying that on the car, i don’t think i wonder if that’s something for a different battery instead of the uh normal sort of household batteries, possibly so. This is a part of the video where i’m supposed to put the four batteries in the car. The eight in the transmitter and then show you guys it running around and me having some fun with it, din păcate, because of sod’s law that ain’t gon na happen on this video, but it’s actually going to get way better now, Um, din păcate, it’s got some interference and I’Ve not got to the bottom of it yet um, obviously it’s all scored 27 mega radio gear, so obviously, with the aerial fully extended and the antenna on the car in the tube, um and i’ve even tested it outside every now and again, bine, it’s a little Bit more than every now and again it’s twitching, but it’s making the car go on its own, so you can be running it around and then it’ll just shoot off and then you’ll try to stop it.
You’Ll, try to break and it’ll break, but then it’ll shoot off on its own again. So it’s a little bit unusual, unusable at the moment now, Sunt.. I i tend to think um it’s, probably maybe the crystals now i’ve got a bag full of old crystals somewhere, but can i help find them um and i’ve looked all over because i’m, pretty sure if i put a new set of crystals in it, probably would Cure it anyway, that’s not gon na happen. So now, we’ll move on to the channel collaboration i’m gon na do which i’m super excited about, because i’ve never done one before and i’m gon na. Do it with a really good friend of mine and a lot of you guys will know him and if any of you guys don’t know him, you need to show him. The love go subscribe to his channel and look at his facebook group and his instagram. So it’s mick rc hobby shed in australia. I talk to mick all the time and even though i talk to him all the time, i never knew he was into these cars. Didn’T have a clue, so i guess talking about this fall that this has got and he starts giving me all this information. Eu sunt.. Like oh wow, you know what you’re talking about. He says: yeah i’ve got one and i’ve had quite a few over the years and he started telling me all the upgrades and stuff he’s doing so.
It was a wealth of information. So a light bulb moment came on in my head and i was like. Do you fancy doing a channel collaboration? Obviously that sven’s been kind enough to send me this from germany to canada, so i’ll do the same. I’Ll, send it from canada to australia now and then mick can make a few videos within it with it, fixing it if he can fix it or changing the radio gear and making it possibly brushless. I have no idea what he’s going to do with it. That’S up to him and then he’ll get a running video of it, no doubt and stuff, so that’s going to be super cool and then eventually. Obviously this is going to take a lot of time because we’re talking about a lot of miles traveling but eventually mick will send it back to me from australia to canada and then i’ll get it back, um perfectly working and then i’ll bring it back on the Channel we’ll show you it and then we’ll get it absolutely ripping outside so, but for me personally, this is going to be a fantastic little journey for this car um and it’s, going to get some love from mick. Now again, mick i’ll just put up obviously mix instagram facebook group and obviously mainly his youtube channel. Please go check that out, subscribe to him and start watching his stuff, because he’s a wealth of information on rc and he’s old school he’s, no bs on his youtube channel, which is why i, like him, not many youtube channels.
I watch anymore, who does it do? Does similar to what i do, but mick is one um, as i said just no bs. None of this. I can highly recommend this and just because you got it for free, deep breaths, so yeah it’s gon na be cool, deci um. I think we’ve covered everything. Eu sunt., looking at men’s little notes because i’m professional and i make notes for my content yeah. I know what i’m doing so, yeah just again sven if you’re watching just a massive. Thank you for this, because you’ve opened up another little avenue for me with this yeah i’ve got to learn about something i didn’t know about and again to do a channel collaboration with it is just going to be mega coal. So i’ll end this video here. Thanks again so much for watching it’s massively appreciated.
