Welcome back to the channel, welcome back to rc vlog, guys i’m working on my udr. I got to show you some of the upgrades i did or i’m doing before i go drive. It so check this out man, these shock caps. They look sweet all right, so i got to show you the stock side first. So these are the stock boring, shot. Caps but check these out. Боже мой, it looks so good uh by the way i didn’t know how to work on this thing. Like no joe guys, i went online and i watched youtube videos on how to open work on this. I thought you take these screws out. You actually got to take these four screws out to get to this screw for the shock, like it’s, completely different it’s, a new chassis, so i don’t know anything about it. Um another thing man taking the body off, was kind of a task look. These are all the screws to take the body off like there’s a whole bunch of them like almost 10, maybe 12 of them in there um here’s the rear. On these i can’t really see them. Let me see yeah there they are. They look good. I thought about not even putting them in the rear, because you can’t really see it, but no, i have them. Someone’S put them on here’s, another upgrade i’m doing. These are the there’s, a bottom bar that goes kind of across right.
Здесь. You can kind of see it on the other side there um this is the size of it, but this is the upgraded one, and i can see why this is recommended. Maybe it gets hit or there’s a lot of pressure on it and they have a tendency to bend. So i got the bigger heavy duty: upgraded um, lower control, arms um. This arm i kind of wanted because i think it would look really cool. But i was told that this takes so much damage that if you get like really nice anodized, алюминиевые из них, you’ll mess them all up, so that kind of sucks, so i’m gon na keep the plastic ones and just replace them they get scratched up. But nonetheless, oh this is another upgrade i’m gon na do i’m super excited about these. These window nets, something like that on there that’s gon na look super cool i’ll show you guys what it looks like when it’s done what the heck these jokers running on windows. Я, always updating here, i just got to bind it up, look the amber light. You know what i noticed, Хотя, all the lights didn’t turn on which i don’t know if that’s something that i got ta configure in here, but it’s almost ready guys almost ready. I still need to put my window nets out, which that’s gon na be a whole nother problem, all right guys. So one of my favorite upgrades at least what i was looking forward to the most.
Were these little, these little clock nets around the uh, the cabin man. They are a gigantic pain in the butt to put on. So basically, you have to get to a screw to get this piece out. This is your little cockpit guys your little drivers um! You have to get to a screw that’s behind that’s. Почему? I have the tire missing back there behind here. The only way to do it is with something like like this is the only way i was able to do it. I have one of these tools where you can do things at an angle and also i had a ball tip from my other tool set. Thank god. So i used this with a ball tip. That was the only way i was able to get those screws out and then to get these screws in you have to get them in from the side. Here you have to go from the inside and also have an angle um. It was a gigantic pain in the butt i’m, almost done with putting out the slot. Putting these last hop ups and upgrades on there i’ll call them hop ups. I wouldn’t call them upgrades because not really upgrading anything it’s, just gon na look really cool, but my god, this thing’s a pain in the butt. Ой, брат, all right guys, it’s done all right. So it was a pain in the butt to work. On i’m, not gon na lie, это, probably my least favorite traxxas car ever to work on that’s beating out the t max, which is also a pain and butt to work on, but yeah it wasn’t fun to work on.
But i do think i do believe that it’s gon na be very rewarding because hopefully i don’t ever take the body off it. Doesn’T break and it’s a solid, solid car, Но, oh my god does it look. Freaking amazing check this car out Music, Хорошо. So the only upgrade i didn’t do is i didn’t put the rear diff in, because i wanted to see how it drove with the solid axle rear, diff rear, diff golly, твердая ось, rear diff, which it has it in there now. What i was told is that it rolls really easy: whenever you’re driving on pavement we’re going to find out, we are going to run it on 3s right of the box. I know you saw the 2s batteries next to it. That was for me binding it up and stuff we’re going to run two 3s 5000 traxxas batteries. Yeah we’re gon na see how this thing rips i’m, just gon na rip it up and down the street for now i’m, not taking it out in the field. Yet because it’s been raining the past couple of days, i don’t really feel like cleaning off my car with a whole bunch of mud um, especially a brand new beautiful one like this. So today, we’re just gon na drive it on the street i’m. Just gon na give you my initial thoughts on how it feels on the driving uh i’m. Not gon na lie, i kind of i kind of messed up.
I uh i kind of drove it a little bit without you guys. I just drove it to sidewalk and back just to make sure everything is um, trimmed out correctly and everything and man it’s it’s, different it’s, довольно прохладно, so let’s drive this thing all right. Let’S put these batteries in, hopefully you guys are kind of aligned correctly. So there’s this little lever here you pull this off then there’s a lever here, and this comes open. Traxxas 3s batteries one plugs in there’s, two plugins for it. I guess you got ta have a bypass if you want to run one battery there’s one plugged in put this in here and we’ll close this and then the other one plugged in like oh, it freaking made a noise all right. Then you put this back on there. We go easy enough, easy as pie. It’S all in there. All right and we’re off let’s see power the car on holy moly things heavy all right guys. I wish you guys could see what i look like when i do this all right, so power on the esc, holding on to the cards tries to take off running steering working. О, О, look at the brake lights! Извините, the uh! О, the brake lights are so cool, so look at all the suspension, travel that’s. The first thing. I noticed how soft the suspension feels um. So i have seen like a mojave drive and i was always wondering if the udr is just as fast.
О, my god is that’s fast, see, break, oh see it almost flipped already. So i know what now i see what they’re talking about, how it? О, my god, so fast now i see what they’re talking about how it almost flips we’re going to turn the brake down. I set my multi function. Knob whoa set my multi function, knob as my brake setting. So you can see me tapping the brake, looks like i’m trimming a little bit to the uh, actually i’m, not trimming at all. Oh no! Oh i’m, gon na flip it over okay, так что это! Probably what everyone’s talking about with the diff? How it kind of just rolls god, this beautiful body the whole time in my head i’m, like don’t, flip it over don’t flip it over! You really can’t turn on the cement, so you pretty much just have to be like full break to turn on the cement. So that’s what they’re talking about? We are going to put the uh the rear diff in after seeing that look at my beautiful lights, and this one does not have self riding so let’s see how fast we can go without flipping over i don’t wan na i don’t wan na flip. It again let’s go full throttle from the stop whoa. You see that it wheelie the udr can wheelie. On 6s, oh man that’s going to be so much fun, ripping through the uh ripping to the field. Хорошо, let’s turn around don’t want to flip it’s super fast, crazy, fast yeah.
I i’m scared to turn with this rear, solid axle in the back or the spool in the back. So we are going to put the rear dip in here. Comes the car we’ll. Do some this car probably thinks i’m crazy, which is fine? Ой, брат, this thing is fun. I have to check the playback. I got this big fear that i’m gon na record these videos and like be five minutes of me, driving and then find out that you guys can’t, hear me or my mic is messed up or something um, but no we’re good. Сооо, Да, i am gon na put the rear diff in i’m. Gon na take this pool out. Боже мой. This thing has got like incredible power. The lights look so cool. I can’t wait to drive it at night. That’S gon na be fun to drive at night um overall, like so believe it or not fun fact. This is the first time i’ve ever driven a udr, so i had no clue what to expect. I drove that losi baja ray the 10th scale, Один, not the huge one. So i know that the suspension seems really soft, which this is going to be awesome ripping to the field, and it looks so real. Сооо, oh my god did you see that holy smokes yeah this rear diff like not rear, diff the rear, spool, the locked rear diff, makes this thing like launch in the air whenever it uh turns we’re gon na have to take that out, that’s crazy.
Хорошо! I’M taking it out now, because i want to rip this thing, but i don’t want to rip the body because the body is beautiful: i’m gon na you know what i thought about it: i’m gon na take y’all’s advice. Instead of get two ddrs like a psycho i’m, just gon na get a backup body because that’s really all i need right, even though i kind of want to utrs. Боже мой, did you see how smooth it handled the uh? The curb there? A lot of car coming, О, we could definitely beat that car in a drag race easily easily. I was like a quarter throttle there, but watch how soft it is. Whenever i jump off this curb we’re going to kind of go like around here – oh my god. So plush that was awesome let’s. Do it one more time? Do it one more time before i end this little segment of me driving to udr for the first time, oh man, that was awesome. Хорошо, we’re gon na go put the rear diff in. I got one more thing to show you guys when i close this video all right, let’s assess the damage. We did get some scuffing here uh. It kind of bothers me. So one thing that i have had people message me about: you can’t turn it off by pushing the uh the easy set button, which is it’s kind of lame. But you know it’s a known.
Not i won’t say issue, i guess it’s an issue it’s like a bug in the software, so you do have to disconnect the battery to turn the car off so let’s. Do that real, Быстрый, actually y’all don’t have to watch me. Do this there, you go done so one last thing guys before we close this vlog out. I want to show you something: the x maxx. It got a makeover. What i mean by that, is it really just got a new body but it’s a pretty cool body. I want to show you guys. I want you to tell me if you like this body better than the old one, my other msm body, but check this thing out. Trying to find someone with good lighting is tough but check it out ready bam. Боже мой. Look at that that looks so good. So basically, what i did is i told self designs which i’ll put a link in the description below to self designs. I told him that i wanted to match the green since i got green anodized stuff on there and but i wanted msm something different. I basically just let him go at it and i was like just make something cool but check out the details on this body. The msm is in chrome what there we go. It’S got a little bit of that honeycomb in there, the green it pops so much looks so good matches with the green aluminum anodized pieces.
Oh man that looks good huh let’s get the uh the other side. Здесь. Я, trying to not get my my shadow here. Что вы, ребята, думаете, better or worse than my other msm body? I think this one looks really cool. This one will be the body that i use to drive around just for fun: um not going to do some crazy bashing with this, because it looks so freaking good don’t want to mess it up. Let me go on this side. Oh man that looks freaking sweet. What do you think guys tell me in the description below better or worse than my other msm body there? It is next to the outcast 8s, oh man, it looks so good guys. I think i like this one better. I think the green just popped so much anyways enough enough with the x max sorry, Извините, by the way someone commented and wanted to know how i store these. This was why i didn’t want to xmax. Everyone thought i didn’t want one because i couldn’t afford one. It was because i don’t know how to store. Like look. These just sit on the ground. I got all the cars up there. These will just sit on the ground. I can’t get any more x, maxx’s guys i don’t know anywhere to put them they don’t fit on the shelf. They’Re too freaking big. Хорошо.
