The features this rc drift and rally car is offering it’s hard to believe that you are getting this kind of bargain dollar 80 ready to run with esp electronic stability program. Well, this is pinecone model sg1604 rc rally, car and rc drift car and today you’re going to watch a complete, honest, straightforward review of this model: Music right, Music, Music Applause, foreign, Music, Music, assalamualaikum, greetings alexander here, and welcome to more rc video reviews when it comes To on road rc vehicles, rc drift cars are one of my most favorite. I simply cannot resist an rc drift car. When i saw this pinecone model sg1604 rc drift car, i had to get it now for only eighty dollars. The ready to run feature packed rc rally and drift car that you are getting. That seems like a very, very good bargain, but sometimes deals like this are just too good to be true, and that is why we are here today in this video i’m, going to give you a detailed, straightforward review of the pinecone model, sg1604 rc rally and rc Drift car right here – okay, so this was inside the box. You have your 116 scale vehicle with rally tires already installed on it, and then you have four spare tires which are drift tires. They are hard plastic, so you can easily drift. You have a bag with accessories like tools and some of the pins. You have one battery charger, radio control and operating instructions.
The first thing that you’re gon na love about this vehicle is not just its price, and its features is that it is a dual purpose. You get the rally tires. That is all terrain tires, so you can drive it on the road or even a rally kind of terrain or if you like, drifting like i love, rc car drifting. It also comes with a set of drift tires, which i have already installed very, very easy to install drifting or railing it’s, just very easy to switch the tires and you can enjoy both of the worlds. Now comes the appearance of the car and, to be honest, i am in love with this carbon fiber body design. I have it’s not real carbon fiber, of course, but uh the the color scheme on this and the shape it’s. Just like a muscle car which looks like a ford mustang gt to me and kind of like um, the idea is inspired from the ken blocks at gym, hana, where he actually drifted a muscle car, which was kind of similar type. Now they couldn’t copy once again, of course. Accordingly, as it is, but again i simply love this design. You can even remove the top this part and make it convertible like open air convertible and put some barbie dolls in or drivers half body drivers. Of course, not full body drivers and let them enjoy some wins in the summer as well on the front side, as you can see, there’s a grill and the the all pimped up body for this drift racing style, i’m, simply loving it and, of course, you’re gon.
Na simply love the led headlights that you can change color, so you can have this circular red light. You can have a full beam or with both of them on so. Basically, with this button on the radio, you can simply change the colors of the led headlights. I love these red ones. You can also turn them on and off from this radio control. So that is another feature that you simply gon na love on this one. These lights make it look really badass. So this is this now let’s get under the hood. Let me pick something up to remove these pins carefully. Remove the shell and remember there’s, a led, headlight cable connected all there. This is under the hood. We have a brushed motor and for most of the rc drift vehicle, i have seen them in brushed versions and that motor actually does a very, very good job when it comes to drifting and they are very, very efficient as well. However, heating is a problem. Most of the time these kind of rc drift cars when the motor heats up, they will simply uh the esc, will simply turn the power off or take the power away from you and you won’t be able to drift. But this is one of the issue with uh brush motors i’m gon na see if this particular car actually have the motor heating up problem or not when you’re drifting, so it comes with a lie ion battery okay, that is a 7.
4 volt 1200 milliamp li ion Battery and all in one control unit, that is esa gyro unit light control is installed right here, there’s a steering, servo down here, not sure what kind of servo is this so far it has been working very well. You also get the front and rear shock absorbers, though they do look. Oil filled shocks to me, but still, i am not sure there isn’t much information about them. Having to have these big nice springs, it does have a very good suspension. You have a front and rear bumpers also on the rear. You do not have any foam on the front bumper. You have this foamy part installed to absorb the impact. Should you hit at full throttle in the wall not sure how long it will survive that, but at least you have this absorber bumper right here, i’ll also notice. The frame is very plasticky cheapish right here and the screws are dug in so they don’t get stripped out. So it does look like a cheapy plastic shell down here at the bottom plate. Central transmission is right here, and they said they have used the ball bearing in the central transmission and on the front and rear differentials. They have planetary gearbox, which is very, very good because it makes because having the front and rear differentials with a ball bearing transmission. It makes it a four wheel, drive rc vehicle and when it comes to drifting with these vehicles, you’re gon na appreciate having a four wheel drive looking at the shell from this angle, you also notice there’s a steering wheel and gear levers in there for some realism.
Now this is a nice radio control that offers up to 80 meters of control range it’s, definitely not just three channel, because it’s controlling many more features of the rc car, like turning on and off the lights like changing the colors of the lights. From this button. Right here and you have more dials and switches right here, you have a throttle, reverse steering reverse you have a receiver and transmitter battery, so it does have telemetry. When the battery is getting low in rc car, the rx led will start blinking to tell you the battery is low, so there is a telemetry here as well and then the most important right here you notice, is esp yes, this is the electronic stability program esp And after that, we have steering, trim and steering dual rate. Now, let me tell you what is esp4. You can either turn it off by putting the dial all the way to minus which helps with drifting when you want to drift turn the esp off, and if you want to race – and you want to do nice and precise cornering without skidding without slipping, you might Want to turn on the gyro and, depending on your style, you can increase it or keep it at moderate level. So what does esp do actually and why it is so important in rc vehicles and when does it kick in? Yes, that is the question, and let me answer it right away that when you are driving your rc vehicle with the set of of course, rally or race tires on road, and if your vehicle starts skidding or going out of control, the gyro will kick in and Get your vehicle back to straight line.
That is what esp electronic stability program for, so you can do precise, cornering without the skidding and losing control, and you can turn around very well and you can keep on going racing properly. But when it comes to drifting, i believe you will have to turn off the electronic stability program, because, when you’re drifting, the esp the gyro will constantly try to. You know correct the attitude of the car and you might not be able to drift properly. So when it comes to drifting, i’ll suggest turn off the gyro. Okay outdoors with the esp on man, it’s, snow, falling and on road tires are on and it’s pretty fast outdoors and you can see how it actually corrects itself. It’S kind of like snake patterns so i’m, just gon na turn down the electronic stability and now drive good, but stability is kicking in so often, however, i’m able to drive as a straight and nice and now i’m just gon na turn off the electronic stability completely. You can see without this. I have to do a lot of steering control and, if you put the esp too much actually it will just overdrive it so it’s, also not very good, in fact, pretty fast and still actually, with those tires, it’s kind of drifting still and when driving is kind Of like having a feeling that something is correcting, the steering for you, which is, is actually very nice because the car is not kidding and not going out of control.
However, it’s not driving in a straight line, so i’m, just gon na, come over here on the road once again and give it one more: try that’s what we need a straight road with the car punch the throttle. Oh nice, it has a very good acceleration. Okay, as you can see, drives nice and straight okay. What i’m gon na do is i’m gon na leave the steering this time. Okay, so stability on okay and i have left my hand, okay and now let’s go it corrected itself. I went over there Applause. Okay, now i found with a little bit of stability on you’re, able to drive nice and very very straight, very nice control Applause, and in order for stability to not kick in too much, you will have to set your trims also nicely. So if your trims are set nicely, you will have better luck: man, it’s, nice and quick, really it’s, very nice and quick. That was a nice jump right here, um good! All right now i have been driving it around and i’m, using by the way a lipo battery, and that is 7.4 volt, uh 1500 milliamp. I believe, and to be honest, i like it without esp like when the esp is on. I can control it. However, i can say that with esp beginners are gon na, simply love it, because the way it assists and also esp is good when you want to you, know, have racing on a track.
Esp is very good for now. I just have this little off road, which is basically for rock crawlers, but you can see it’s actually able to drive off road with these tires, just fine in here, which i normally use this area for crawlers and you can see the car has basically Music. No problem there is more dirt for you, because it’s, like kind of wet here and muddy Applause, come on. You know what to do hit that like button it’s right there, i know you can do it. Oh, while you’re at it also hit the subscribe button right. There come on don’t, be shy, just hit it.
