I got so much to update you guys on and i i haven’t updated you on really any of the builds um but uh. I i will do. I know i know a lot of you like to know the the the technicalities of the builds and i like to give them to you it’s just a time thing guys anyway, radix it’s, not a radix four. It also ain’t a rad at six. I guess it! Well, it’s capable now, but i wanted to update you so the body is completed, as you can remember, i chopped up a perfectly good radix body, which was a downer which is a silly thing to do um, but it did allow me to do a bit of Painting – and you guys know, i love the painting, i love the fade jobs. I love the green um it’s, just a nice simple job, although i did pay attention to get a really nice fade over this area here and across the side uniform. Both sides darker at the back here nice green at the front, a nice little fade in there as well. I made sure to get a little bit of a darker spot in there just to give it some texture. That is a new custom, rc upgrades wing. Thank you lee custom rc upgrades if you don’t know who they are, stop living underneath the rock and crawl out um. All the upgraded parts are on let’s, have a look under the hood.
If i can get it off past this uh past this little aerial here there cool, that’s, the lid, it turned out pretty sweet, so i was happy uh. So what are we running so we’re running a mamba monster x? Now i was um or i have a mamba monster x8s on the way, but it is. It is big and i had the max 6 in here and that’s big as well um. So i didn’t want to necessarily start cutting too much stuff up on the bits that i want to keep in order to get a huge esc in um before working out what it’s kind of capable of so mamma monster xesc. I can also attach i’ve got some nice cat packs that will run down here if it’s having a hard time pushing this 2000 kv motor. I don’t think it will actually, until i start getting to some really tall gears again. The stock servo is operating perfectly well. I’Ve got a gyro in there as well. I’Ve just got a 4s battery here because i’m going to test on 4s ludicrous lipos, look them up on ebay. They do really great servos ludicrous servos, really nice. I use them in all sorts. Really. Nice and quick high voltage super super talky. I think 41 kilos of torque on seven and a half or eight volts um, my spool, so my armor spool is in there and it just needed a little bit of an o ring at the back in between the rear, red, spacer and the actual spool or Gear or spur itself um just to take out a tiny bit of play, but you could have left it in there and it would have been fine um.
I have with the different with the armored drive cups they’re, not as deep as the corrally drive cups, which means you can fit a stock, typhon front drive shaft and a stock typhoon rear drive shaft, although i am using bigger ones from gpm on both ends. They’Re not quite eight mil but they’re, not as skinny as the stock armor typhoon ones to. I think i covered this before, but to run the big opinions you need to chop a section of plastic cover off of here. Also super easy. All the nice 7075 shot towers. Everything like that is in. I told you about the lowering and the Music steering arms and rear upper links. Um i’ve also added some really trick lights. These are actually rock lights from a company in the us called lit lights, lit led sorry on facebook, a really nice guy there and they are super bright. These are green, green at the front and i’ve got a green at the back, because i am going to be doing some evening running and such like and possibly night running on roads where i don’t want there to be any traffic around um, and so i run Lit leds on this rig, i run them on my rock crawling rigs and i have a little treat with that to show you um after i finish, filming it so yeah that’s, the uh that’s, the radix overall, so far, the build quality and the parts quality, the Diffs the the way the buggy arrived genuinely was in far better shape, and i mean that, from a tuning point of view, the diffs were nicely packed with proper uh weighted silicon.
You could feel that the front was heavier than the rear. It was set up ready to go um. I know other cars state that they are, but in all fairness, they’re, not really, you have to run them through. I did run this through. I found nothing that i wanted to change, nothing that i needed to do, except for what i want to change. If you see what i mean really nice, buggy um, i have so far no complaints for the money i’ve spent on this plus the upgrades. I think um is basically a new armored, typhon and uh radio system, because you can’t use the stock ones, they’re crap, maybe the version five. The latest version with the spectrum stuff is better. I think the electronics are better um, possibly with the spectrum stuff but uh, but for for what i’ve got in here value wise? I don’t think it can be beat again the body another test of their international delivery from italy. You would have thought delivery from italy in the middle of uh, just after brexit no chance again. It was with me two working days two working days, and this arrived uh two working days and all my other parts arrived 20 quid postage, dhl express and it truly was express uh very, very nice. The only other place that i get that kind of service from abroad is island, hobby nuts, if you know them they’re, also very good. I got a sticker on here because the esc came from them other than that guys that’s the radix next video that you see of this thing.
