Oh you can’t see it what’s up guys welcome to the channel today’s video we are looking at the big rock. The only reason i got the vortex out is to show you that i’ve switched rolls. The big rock was a speed run car i’ve, put it back to stock we’ve put the vortex wheels on it. The vortex has had the 17 mil hex conversion. It’S got some grp’s on it. The 4000 kv hobby wing motor out this and it’s got different. Esc there’ll be a maybe a separate video about that. I wasn’t really that impressed with it as a speed run car it’s not as wide as the big rock it’s. Not as long as the big rock so not really the best platform, this is definitely the best platform for speed. Running and hardcore. Rc have just pushed their big rock past a hundred mile an hour. I think 105 mile an hour i’ve converted it back to take it out for a bash it’s got the spectrum electronics in it with the 18 tooth pinion out of the vortex, so it’s crazy, fast uh, like i was using for these runs, was the cnhl. 5200Mah. 100C, i really rate the cnhl stuff. I’Ve got quite a few and i’ve just had a new um i’ve said a box with a load of others coming as well, some two s ones. For my drag cars, the big rock for me is definitely still the best 3s basher.
You can get from armor that super wide stance even wider. Now, with the vortex wheels the long wheelbase it’s just such a stable platform for bashing about absolutely love it. Now that hardcore rc have got 105 mile an hour out of theirs and i only managed high 70s, i don’t think i broke 80, even on 4s it’s got me thinking. What do i do? I love it as a basher. We did have some issues in this video as you’ll see. I think i might keep this one, as is because i love it and then the vortex. I don’t know whether i’m going to put this back to like a roller and move it on by another big rock and make it a dedicated um speed, run or street rock. I don’t want to change this now. You know, i know some people don’t get on the spectrum electronics, but this running stock, 18 tooth pinion it’s an absolute blast as you’re, going to see so the vortex i’m, not sure on the future of it. The big rock in this video took it to the quarry, absolutely crazy speed and then because i had an issue with it, i didn’t have any tools with me and i then brought it back, fixed it and made a little modification to my um wheelie bar stuck Some stuck some, i think, they’re called ferro ferro rod or it’s like a flint rod. Uh basically made a little groove stuck the rod in there took the wheels off and then you’ll see at the end of the video and got some sparkage from it.
It’S gon na look crazy at night. You need the wheels off they fit to work on this, but i’ve also seen you get like titanium buttons and stuff to screw on the bottom, but everyone likes a little bit of sparkage don’t. They anyway i’ve been going on long enough it’s a bit of a random one. This took out broke, it took it back out broke it again, but as they say, content is content enjoy. So at the quarry today. I usually uh save this for my crawlers, but they’ve just finished doing some work on the roads up there and they’ve cleared this area. It looks perfect for this thing fully charged. Lipo let’s go yeah, oh spray, myself, oh yeah, it’s, a beast and it’s on this roof already it’s awesome, it’s. So fast. I have my steering rate right down whoa. This is either going to uh, kill it or it’s going to kill it. It’S either going to kill the terrain or the terrain is going to kill it so fast. So this terrain awesome wouldn’t, it be cool. If you could ride on board with these. Well, i don’t know actually not sure, that’s a good thing Music. Oh, we need to jump there. Don’T we uh, oh that’s, not good. That is not good. The big rock after all! This time has let me down: we’ve lost the outer bearing and the actual hub. Ah, i got ta carry it back to the car for the sun to go down a bit to get maximum sparkage for you, let’s get the tires warmed up.
First, there we go sparky room. Oh, i knew i’d lose that one that one wasn’t glued on very well whoa this thing’s mental. Now with that 18 tooth pinion whoa, nearly at the curb then sparks oh it’s cool having sparks isn’t it now. I know everyone likes it. Applause, mental get the old gopro on the back, see if that gets some good footage, that’s insane. I love the big rock. I love the big rock it’s mad, oh it’s, even madder. With this sparks coming out, the back whoa whoa nearly not again come on man. I’Ve not had a problem with the wheels until today, what’s going on well, so this time it’s actually come out. The hub i’ve just had a funny idea.
