I don’t feel like waiting for it to charge up it’s a weird thing about that gopro i may have got a dud or something with it. It’S weird, if you plug it in and the red light doesn’t come on, it’s actually draining it. So i plugged it in a couple hours ago with like 80. I wanted to top it off, but the little red light didn’t come on, so i tried to charge it off a different usb port instead of my laptop and it ended up just draining it. I look at it it’s, like eight percent, so i just grabbed my other camera, so hopefully the sound and the in the vision quality is uh just as good, if not better than the gopro today we’re. Looking at this guy, you guys seen this a couple videos ago with medic. I believe i lost to his red chevy, looking thing: the chug, something like that charge because it looks like a chevy dodge. This is clearly a ripoff of a jeep doesn’t, say jeep anywhere, but imagine they’re getting sued as we speak. This thing is called the panda hobby 118 Scară. Four wheel drive tetra x1. So i guess there is an x2 out there as well, which i haven’t seen. One yet the esc that was in here has been removed. I forget, if i hooked it or where it went, i don’t see it anywhere, but excuse me, i used to have a roll bar on it.
A roll roll bar light roof light and it had a full light kit. It comes with a full light kit in it that i have disconnected temporarily and it’s all bundled up into the top of the roof. Reason being is the receiver esc combo that came with it, had all the light controls, so it even had the backup light backup lights, which was nice when you backed up and had reverse lights, which is cool, nice effect, all kinds of scale items. You got your door handles your windshield wipers uh, either rear door handle front. Bumper looks okay, nu e rău. I have heightened the suspension to the maximum height available. I’Ve changed out click. I have changed out the esc for the dynamite. Esc, receiver. Combo a note spectrum receiver combo that originally came in this guy that now has brushes in it so that’s in there now, and it did slightly improve it. Now it comes with a 51 turn motor and that 51 turn motor is awfully quick. So actually i do have to take the body off to put a battery in it. So we’ll do that now. The tires are actually, i find quite small for a 1 18. uh nitto has a nitto grappler mt, that is the stock tire off of the sex. 24 jeep, it is actually slightly bigger than the stock tire that comes on the panda hobbies tetra here the thing is it’s much much lighter. Give me a quick second and i’ll.
Show you, ok. So in grams the scx stock 24 tire 11.3 grams, 11.30 grams, the stock tire that is not vented. Oh wait, yeah it’s vented there might even be a foam in there. Muzica, 30.28 11.3 that’s almost triple the weight so that’s. Why? I kept them on because i did put the axial ones on there because they are softer and seem to have a nicer grip on the rocks, but i was rolling over way more than i was before, and i hate rolling over so unnecessary. în regulă. We dish the scale. Let me put the tire back on goofy looking motor in it see that little 51 terminal it’s got this extra bit on the front of it. Apparently that comes off. I haven’t really looked into too much. I don’t know i highly doubt if that’s a gear reduction box, but i guess it’s a possibility. The drive shafts are cup and ball style instead of like a traditional dog bone that you would see or universal joint. I guess that is a universal joint, but i call it a couple ball just because of how they’re made, but i should never have binding issues on those. The only thing are not the only thing, but one of the things that jump out about to me on these uh newer are the panda hobby ones. Mă scuzați: they do have the oil filled shocks which is really nice, because it’s nice to have nice suspension come on buddy now i don’t know how well you can see that and get some more light.
Jesus so there’s the diff clearance let’s see if we can bring that in a bit here so there’s the diff clearance on a uh stock setup. I should have a measuring tape around here somewhere to give a really poor guesstimate of what the uh diff clearance is professionalism. I’Ll tell you, molly get already been outside there. It is now let’s assume the front and rear diff are the same height, say pretty low man that’s terrible um let’s, see if i can do this another way hold on give me a quick second here. That would be a good way to do this. Muzica. ok. I’M gon na hold it up in here, put it on my cell phone just have a flat surface at my eye level and i would say: ok, it’s not working, trying to get an exact measurement for that. Guy is not coming out. So let’s look at the tire: ok, the uh sex 24. Tire does not fit underneath it. If you go to baby digger baby diggers tires are ever so slightly bigger than the stock tire, and i mean barely they’re just super fat, but there is loads of clearance. Underneath that diff, you could drive over that all day long and not hit it. So the diff clearance on the on the 118th is not the greatest sorry that wasn’t the most professional look at uh how to look at diff clearance but yeah. The diff clearance kind of blows on the 118th panda hobby tetra here’s another look at something else, so that’s the front end of the fms abbas.
So you can see i’ve used that a fair amount and how much diff clearance you got there. Este., not horrible could use a little bit of bigger tire, but they are slightly softer and a hobby that big old diff comes down there with those two screws. If you’re crawling on rock and stuff those screws like to catch on stuff and while i’m down here. Fapt, look at that steering setup. I’Ve never seen anything quite like that before i believe she’s supposed to be waterproof and again, oil filled shocks which is nice alice just brings back into action, ready to go well there’s your my two 118ths that i have right now for crawling, because i have well 1. 16.. I guess you could say, but none of them are really uh crawl, they’re more of a bash word. I bet i could trail this thing. It is so fast. I could probably trail it. Um i’m gon na try and crawl here in a second i’m gon na. Ask you guys a question so there’s molly um. I have the truck. Oh no. I had the truck on the scale, but apparently it’s over 500 grams. I should have thought of that hold on. I have to change scales here. ok, i got my big scale out now: didn’t go over by much 514 grams, so like half a kilogram comes in the atlas or sorry that is the uh hobby, tetra and now i’m, going to put the atlas on the scale just because it’s here, 473 and That’S without the battery, because the battery is in that other truck now here’s another 600 ma a 600 mah 2 cell, which is what comes in the atlas normally but it’s, just a different one should be about the same 503 grams.
I know you’re staring at molly. The whole time i’m talking i’m fine. With that weird looking dog, she wants a t, r e, a t right now, because it’s past her t r e a t time, but you can’t have one until i’m done this video yeah that’s, weird. The atlas is the lighter truck screw it i’ll beautiful. I have to show you look at that 503 grams that’s with this 600 ma 2 cell, because without it, 472 that’s the atlas, the tetra, which i have removed a little bit of weight 514 with the battery, which is about the same size of the battery. That comes with the uh, the apps weird that’s, a heavy little truck. That is a light truck, so i removed the rear thing, the light bar for the top and then change the esc’s. So if anything should be lighter than stock wild. Okay back at the task. At hand Music flying around – oh sorry, i got you, oh so, desigur, that isn’t high, it does have three settings, but the settings remove torque as well came all year. I need to move so that people can see the jeep molly get out of there. You big baby good girl, hi i’m, trying to drive a truck, so there’s no drag break. That makes it kind of difficult, and this is about as slow as i can make it go which i’m sure some of you are saying: adică, not too bad, it’s bad.
It just it’s got no torque it’s, almost like i don’t know how to describe it. It’S almost like a little bashing it’s, not all or nothing and it’s, definitely proportionate the steering’s, not terrible for the weight of the truck. I guess so my question to you guys: molly likes it it’s almost the same color, i guess seems to have enough power when you really want to get it out of it, so it is a pretty decent sized motor for any of these 124th to 118th that’s. The biggest motor i think, i’ve seen in any of them, which is a good sign, but man for a 51 turn there’s, no crawl Applause. Now this is a relatively, not steep climb, so where it bound up there that wasn’t me off the throttle. It found some grip see how it’s twerking, but it doesn’t it can’t slow crawl through. If you know it has to throttle and jeep bounce its way up, Music stuff. So all in all guys, i got ta say it’s, not a horrible truck. It definitely needs tires and it needs to be able to crawl a little bit because again well, not again, but i think this could be more of an outdoor rig like. I could be just punishing myself by trying to drive it as an indoor truck because maybe it’s just not born to be one, maybe it’s boring to be outside, born to be alive, but it’s uh it’s, not bad the more.
I think about it. The more i think i could trail it cause i i’m, a 110 guy. You guys know and see all the trucks behind me most days. You know what i might have to try that i don’t know if these tires are going to be any good in snow. Hmm, so all right question you guys i’m going to go towards. I think it’s called the scrambler tire by rc4 wheel drive because if you there’s videos out there, where guys show that they’re all the same size except one, is a cycle big tire bigger than the my claws on and my the the tires on the baby. Digger called my claw m, i c l a w can’t find them anywhere anymore. Sorry, i don’t know where you’re gon na find them. You have to search on old, like uh, kijiji or ebay or craigslist, or facebook. They’Re gon na be pairs out there on somebody’s shelf somewhere they’re, not using them anymore, dar da. I don’t think you can buy them new anymore. So good luck to you, but if any guys know how to make this thing crawl, if you know whether there’s a motor option, can i gear it down? Can you get diff gears? Should i get fms atlas axles and put them on here? Hmm, or should i try it as a trail truck pretty tempted to try it as a trail truck all right that’s about all i can think of for now any questions you guys got, lay them down in the box below and uh.
I really appreciate all you guys watching uh it’s been a couple months since medic shouted me out and my channel continues to grow. Deci. Thank you guys. Thank you for sharing. Thank you for commenting. Thank you for liking.
