As you can see today, i’ve got my sg1604 little uh. 1 16 scale drift car out here again today. Well, it’s a drift and a rally car, as you can see here, i’ve got the uh rally wheels on it and today i’m, going to do a speed run on this to see how fast it can actually go now on youtube. I don’t know if there’s anyone that’s done speed runs yet on this one, but today i’m, going to share with you my results. Basically, all i’ve seen is review after review on social media. So i thought i’ll uh do a speed run on this and um see if it can get the 30ks an hour that they do claim off this 380 motor. It is a full drive car and i did review this the other day, so you can check out that video i’ll leave a card at the top right hand, corner of the screen really cool little car, guys all right so um. Today, i’ve got my skyrc gsm020 uh gps, speed reader. Here it runs on bluetooth and, in my opinion, it’s the best speed reader. You can actually get these days so very popular speed. Reader i’ll leave a link to that one in the description below as well. If you’re interested in looking at that, one also done a review on that one, not that long ago as well. So anyway, guys um the wind just uh pushed the tx over so anyway guys today, what i’m going to do i’m going to try it out.
Firstly, on the lithium ion pack that comes with it, it is a 1200 milliamp hour so i’m going to do a quick couple of runs with that and then what we’re going to try is the uh 2s lipo here from uh wltoys. Now this is 1100 milliamp hour, and this is, it is from a wl toys, a 979, the blue wl toys truck 118 scale, because this comes with a red, jst. Okay, so we’ll. Try that out and we’ll see if we can get a little bit better speed with the lipo compared to the lithium ion pack. Sometimes i’ve had a a bit of an increase uh, maybe a kilometer or two, but sometimes i’ve actually got the same speed as what the lithium ion pack will. Uh do anyway. So we’ll see if there’s any differences in that all right guys. Well, anyway, today i’m at the uh, my old location, just behind the college here, uh, like i said this car is only rated at around 30k. So you know i don’t need a lot of room to run this. You know, like my uh other vehicles, where i go to a different spot now so um. I just actually come here quite a bit uh well for many years actually to do gps, speed runs i’ve, actually got a playlist i’ll pop that, in the top right hand, corner of the screen of uh speed ran heaps and heaps of different models. So if you’re interested, you could check out that playlist and uh i’ll be adding this one in there once i’m done with this video, so so anyway, guys i’m going to set up the gps speed reader here to my phone and i’ll, take a screen recording of That and we’ll see what this sg1604 can do.
Will it do the 30ks an hour as stated let’s find out? Okay, guys, i’ve got the gps speed reader all connected we’ve got some satellites here. 12 satellites got a screen recording here, so i’ve got on track. We’Ll click start and we’ll see how fast it will go now, we’ll see if it gets to 30 kilometers an hour. Okay we’ve got a bit of sand on the road there. Oh i’ll try to keep away from that. Pretty nimble little car there’s a bit of debris here on this road, so i’ll head out that way, i think let’s try that again make sure. Is it trimmed up all right? Okay, let’s try there’s a bit more trimming. There i’ve got the esp turned off guys. So no gyro, whoa Applause, it’s a cool little car, though guys it drifts very well too, but it’s a good little nimble car to use on road like this or rallying off road, maybe it’s a bit too low. I think, to go off road. Well, let’s check that out that’s on the ion pack that comes provided with this car. I must have knocked the uh let’s see, so we stopped that read got 30 k’s an hour guys all right, that’s pretty good. So it does do the 30 k’s an hour as stated and in mile per hour it’s probably going to be around. I don’t know 19 or something like that. Let’S see, uh go to units miles, go back, read yeah 19 mile an hour okay.
So i was right: okay, now what we’ll do i’ll quickly put that lipo in that’s, fully charged as well? The 1100 milliamp hour, wltoys, lipo and we’ll, give it a go on that we’ll see if we can get a little bit more than 30 k’s an hour it’d be pretty interesting to see the results but as as it sits, guys it’s a 19 mile an hour. I’Ll go change that figure because i like to go in kilometers and we’ve got 30 k’s an hour. So you know this uh pinecone model aren’t uh over exaggerating their uh speeds. Like some other um companies do they you know state, it will do 10ks over than what it actually does so that’s good to see all right. So it does stand up to the 30ks an hour, all right, guys, i’m, going to stop this speed. Uh recording uh! Stop my camera for now and then we’ll put the lipo and we have a go with that: okay, guys well, i’ve got the uh lipo in it. Now, from the wl, toys fits in there perfectly okay, so we’re going to take it for a speed run on that here’s, the stock battery okay. So what i’m going to do? I’M going to press start? Okay and we’ll give it a go on the uh lipo we’ll see if we get any increase out of it all right, let’s head out there again. This is sand because they’ve been doing some uh construction work here, there’s a bit of sand on the road.
Here, Applause debris on the road there, so it looks pretty zippy on the lipo, so just go out of range yeah. I went out of range, oh spun out Applause, pretty hard to keep in a perfectly straight line this car much more suited to drifting. I think all right let’s check the phone, see what we got. I got to get back into the app they’re still recording anyway guys. So press stop read 32 k’s an hour see guys so we did get a two kilometer hour increase, so that would be around 20 mile an hour. So there you go guys. The lipo does help increase the actual uh speed of this little car. So if you want the maximum speed and power out of it put in a 2s lipo, so there you go guys 32 k’s an hour, so that’s rather interesting, so uh anyway, guys hope you enjoyed this quick speed. Run test of the sg1604 go check out. My review, if you haven’t, seen it already guys, i do a full length review where i i done a detailed overview. Then i tested it out on the tarmac on the basketball court with these rally tyres and then i took it for a drift test. So uh feel free to check that out. I’Ll put a link right now at the top right hand, corner of the screen and uh. You can watch that video as well. So thanks very much for watching guys hope you enjoyed this quick speed run video of the 1604 from pinecone model, as always, i’ll leave a link to where you can get this below guys at makefire.
