So this truck is really really cool, it’s, a drift truck. It has a small brushed motor in this particular one. It does come in two styles. Let me show you the box and you guys can see here. There is the version that i have here the 1604, and then here is the 1603, which is more of a truck version. I guess more like a pickup truck version of this drift card and the thing that they advertise with this is the esp or electro, effectively correct y’all for easier control. What they’re getting at is this has a gyro built in on it. I’Ve not seen one of these with the gyro built in on it before really really cool, because this will help stabilize the vehicle while you’re driving it. Now you could just come with some uh different wheels. I’Ll show you in a minute that you put on it. What are slicks and we’ll have to see how the gyro affects that, because i don’t know if you might want to turn the sensitivity down that a bit just because it’s going to want to correct it. You know so some of the features of this uh of this truck is it has a 4 channel controller, a 40 amp, integrated control, esc and then the 380 a brushed motor with this guy. It has full ball bearings in it, which is really really nice. Most of the cars nowadays do have ball bearings. This particular one has a those um three spare batteries, so you get three of these lipo.
Actually, the lithium ion batteries are 1200 milliamp, 7.4 volt lithium ion batteries with a red jst plug on those, and then you get those four wheels which uh spare slicks. I should say that you can put on to this guy that are pretty nice they’re plastic, but they’re going to make it really good, because there’s very very little traction. They can do all kinds of drifting maneuvers with it and it comes with the usb charger. For these uh batteries and you just it just charges off the balance plug on those batteries, so it’s going to be rather slow. Thankfully, most people have hobby grade chargers that have red jsts. You can charge it up a lot quicker using those, so yeah that’s sort of the uh, some of the stuff that comes in it let’s go ahead and take a closer look now at the actual car itself and then obviously we’ll go over that controller a little Bit more so let’s go ahead and take the top off here and you can see it is attached, because it’s got the light, a wire for the lights there, and then there is a jst for the power here’s the 380 brushed motor. It is just some friction shocks on here, but that’s, fine for more of an on road car. You could do a little off road bashing, with the rubber stock tires that come on it, but this doesn’t have the kind of clearance, and you know it’s, not gon na be ideal for off road.
But when you put these on, these are just for on road. Uh drifting right like on your garage floor or something where it’s usually pretty slick, is ideal for that here’s, your steering servo. This is all fully proportional throttle and steering, and then this is your esc and receiver. Combination on this guy let’s go ahead and we’ll. Look at the controller – this is actually a very nice controller for a sub 100 rc you’re on off switch from the side here is your. This is some um. I think it’s got light controls on it right here you can adjust the lights uh, probably just on and off. I believe, and then you up here on top you’ve, got your steering dual rates and then you have steering trim in the middle and then off to the to the very side. Here is where your esp of the gyro control the more you turn this up. The more the car is going to want to correct itself because it’s seeing the car moving one way and it wants to steer it back that’s how the gyro works, the higher you put it the more it’s going to correct, but, of course, up too much it’s Gon na probably make it even you know more difficult to drive, so you got ta find fine tune, the driver to where you want it for your driving style, it’s, all the way down it’s going to do very little correction on this guy and one other thing.
We do have a little accessory bag here with uh looks like a little extra on the little uh driving swing. Shaft type deals here for you to um repair. If they break, they give you two of those you get a four and one wrench here and then you’ve got a phillips screwdriver. It looks like they give you an allen, wrench and some extra body clips inside of this guy, so really looking forward to getting this out and driving this around and see how it does you know it should be decent speed, wise from what i’ve heard i’ve, not Really watched any other videos out there. Quite a few people are getting these in because they’re brand new and it seems like people are really liking. Just if you look at some of the thumbnails and stuff, you see on youtube. Of course, that can be deceiving because not everybody’s honest about everything out there, but yeah look i’m really looking forward to it. I think it’s going to be a fun car to drive. It really has a nice look. Both versions even has a little uh manual shifter inside of here inside of it just to give a little extra added touch of realism there inside of the car so yeah. This ought to be pretty cool. The three battery versions a little bit more that’s, the one that i have um. These ought to get a pretty good run time on these 17 excuse me, 1200 milliamp, lithium ion batteries, and i really want to see how that gyro does that’s going to be.
The biggest thing is: how does that work i’ve only driven a gyro car once when i put the radial link into my maximus so i’m, pretty new to the gyros. It was pretty cool on that we’ll see how well it works in here. It’Ll be really nice on the on road rubber tires again, we’ll have to see how much we want that gyro turned up for the plastic on road drift tires. Alright, guys that wraps up this quick um overview and uh. First, look at the sg1604 hope you guys enjoyed this stay tuned, i’ll be taking out for a test run i’ll, try both set the tires on it and we’ll see how it performs that gyro on either on the road and how it does like. On a garage floor, someplace slick where we can do some drifting so be sure to subscribe, if you’re new to the channel, i really appreciate it we’re getting very close to 10 000 subs, which i’m really excited about never dreamed. I even had a thousand much less ten thousand and make cliche click the bell.
