What is up guys? My name is mark sunrise. Welcome back to channel welcome back to the rc vlog guys we are here at my high speed testing facility. You guys have seen this on the vlog before ethan over here driving his car evan’s about to drive his car. They have worked on their cars today, so they wanted to test, drive them and we’re doing that, but that’s not what today’s vlog is about today’s vlog we’re gon na be driving the brand new traxxas nitro, not not a nitro traxxas vortec 3.0. The corvette it’s over here i’ll show you guys in a second but it’s, not just the normal corvette. If you didn’t see the live, feed i’ll put a link in the eye above, we basically took it out of the box, took the electronics out and put the vxl system in it. So it’s gon na be super crazy fast and i geared it to the moon. I got a double check on the gearing i’ll put what the gearing is below here in a second actually i’ll put links in the description of the gearing, but i think it’s 3154, which is the highest speed, gearing you can get from traxxas. I think we’re going to hit above 60 miles an hour. We do have the radar gun and we will find out, but let me show you what the car looks like here’s something interesting. I think those guys are vlogging. Also when i walked up.
They had their camera out in the parking lot anyways here it is the nitro 4. Why do i keep saying nitro the traxxas for tech 3.0 with the vxl system, you guys are probably wondering the keen observers are wondering why there’s no capacitors on the back. This is the older system. This is the two pull two pole: vxl, not the the newer system that have that has the capacitors, the esc is a little bulkier that’s, actually a four pole, vxl system, this one’s a two pole, one still, i i think i think it actually has a better Top speed, um but hold on these guys are stopping down all right here. They are guys. These guys are tick tockers they have a. They have a tesla i’ll, actually i’ll put a link there. Certain youtube channel i’ll put a link in their youtube channel below um, but we’re they they wanted to know if we wanted to race an rc car against their tesla and guess what guys we have the perfect car to race against the tesla. So this should be interesting. Let’S. Do this all right, guys, we’re gon na take a look at their cars, this the uh. Is this the one with the ludicrous mode, so they don’t they don’t do that on this one. So this is a tesla model, 3 performance. Dual motor, oh it’s, a performance dual motor boost, so he did say just on this little strip. He was able to hit 80 right here.
So we can’t hit 80.. We can, we can hit – probably maybe maybe 65 70, so it should be interesting. We should get him out of the hole and then he’ll probably run me over, but we’ll be fine. We’Ll see what happens all right guys. I took the mic off, it might be windy, we hope it’s not, but getting the car ready, they’re gon na move their car i’m gon na do test hit. We haven’t even drove this car before it’s brand new out of the box, um i’m kind of nervous. I think we’ll win but i’m kind of nervous, all right. A super car yep what’s, your super car. We have a 20 20 nsx, oh really, yeah zero to 60’s in the twos; no way i’m dead serious. So if you want to, if you want a rematch versus the the superfire, we promised we have a really bad road, so we don’t get it out as much, but that might be a video with you that would be sweet. This is not gon na be good. I’M gon na lose control like crazy guys. I can’t control something this one. Doesn’T have tsm ethan. Please don’t hit me guys i’m having i’m having trouble controlling this thing. No, i landed it dad um, i don’t think i don’t think i’m gon na be able to keep it together. All right we might race with the e buggy, hey you you might, you might be running the buggies.
I don’t think i can keep this unstable enough hit him get him. Oh, i think he wins. I think rc car won and we were racing to that gap right there. Oh, i think he got him holy crap. That was awesome. Do we need to run this again? I think we need to run it again. Oh man, they did all the cool staging and i missed it guys. I know i messed up, but we did get the race that was freaking awesome, all right, we’re running him again. He says he messed up the launch, the evans e buggy. He did get him. He did get him if we’re racing to where he’s at right there. Well, we did get him. Oh man, that was freaking awesome all right here we go i’m going to go down here. The e book, so evan’s e buggy is running. I believe, it’s a hold on car coming. I believe he’s running a 2050, maybe a 20 50 motor four cell battery and it’s it’s, a z buggy that he races with. So here we go evan good, oh, wait! You’Re, good, Music let’s go back here, i’m gon na hide behind the tree. Just because something happens, Music, oh you got him again holy crap. He got it was so close. Dude it’s super close, oh man, that was freaking awesome guys. I wish it would have been better if we could have got him with the corvette, but i think we need to put tsm in it it’s just way too fast.
I can’t even control i’ll try to do a couple more passes. We will do a radar gun pass just to see what i can do, but i can tell you right now as soon as i start. Moving with the corvette it’s it’s, just it’s lose control like crazy. There they go limitless limitless cars. I believe that’s. What it is, i will definitely put a link in the description. Nice guys, they’re doing a youtube channel. They got some supercars, so we might be racing an x01 against a supercar really really really soon. It should be super cool. But yes, that was so much fun. I’M gon na show you guys how this thing runs. It just it’s not stable enough. Like i don’t i don’t have it might be stable with the xl5. Also my steering is like to the moon. I could probably turn my steering sensitivity down let’s see as soon as i give it. It’S just got too much dang power, all right, let’s run them guys. It’S just got too much power. I think if i, if i didn’t gear it to the moon, i think it would be fine – has a lot of break actually i’m gon na i’m gon na adjust it with the uh the old app here, because i think it’s got. We need to turn the steering sensitivity down. I hope you guys can see the car. I i so angling, the gopro on the head, it’s always really weird, because you’re always scared that it’s not pointing directly.
Oh, i just went through the water but it’s. Okay, it’s waterproof don’t hit my car. Please all right, guys desperate times call for desperate measures working the battery charger up to the phone while we adjust here we go now. What we need to do is we’re going to go to drive effects. I think that’s, where we go there, we go steering sensitivity. You know what we’re going to turn the brake the brakes already to this so we’re, going to turn the brake down to 35 and then we’re going to do steering senso nuts yeah steering sensitivity is going to be the multi function knob. I think that will be the best for our application here, so turning the steering sensitivity definitely helped, but as soon as it starts going too fast, the tires just blow off it. So honestly, i wouldn’t go with this gearing. If i were you guys, i would start with maybe the stocking there’s no break. I took the break all the way out. Let’S put some break up here, um. If i were you guys, i would not start with this gearing this gearing is to the moon. I would start with something a little more controllable, i mean i’m sure through the water. You see that i mean i couldn’t have gone any more square through the water hey eva. Can we do a speed run for my uh, for my uh battery dies we’ll get evan to hit it with the radar radar gun real quick see if i can keep it in one piece and then i’m going to race these boys in the night? Oh, my god, please tell me guys that i’m, not the only one with the kid who can’t find anything even if we’re sitting right in front of them all right, let’s turn it on, but we’re on daylight we’re going to do a test pass.
You might want to get it on the test. Pass we’re, gon na start off, really close, so i’m, not gon na pull it full throttle because i lose control as soon as it goes full throttle. Here i come, evan quarter, half throttle. Yes, i just screamed like a little girl when i thought the car was gon na hit me. Oh it’s, not oh, it is tracking straight we’re, still good we’re, still good guys. I can’t control this thing. Oh i can’t control it. I think i i think i already broke something guys. This gearing is way too much. What do you say? 42? What happened ethan? Oh, i did break it. I busted the shock off golly. What a horrible first run. Sorry guys! I completely failed the shock when i hit the curb it blew off. Let’S, take a look all right, guys, um if it’s, glitchy and grainy it’s, because it’s actually pretty dark outside my camera is able to get this, but we did. We did break it there. It is the shock it came off. Yeah we hit the curb pretty hard um. The gearing is just way way too freaking high. I tried to turn down the steering sensitivity. I tried to throttle into it as soon as i gave full throttle. I lost it. Yeah it’s it’s way too high. I don’t think this body creates enough downforce like that’s like super high speed, gearing it’s not ready for it.
So what we’re gon na do is we’re gon na regroup, we’ve already running these problems with vortex before because they’re, just so so small of a car with so much power, we’re, probably gon na put tsm on it, see if that makes it a little bit easier To drive it probably will, but sometimes at those high speeds it could be, it could go against like it could actually make it wobble even more um or we’re gon na turn the gearing down and make a little bit drivable, but guys i’ve already beat this car Up pretty freaking bad a lot worse than i needed to beat it up, you probably should have stuck with xl5. Actually what i’m probably gon na do is fix this thing and then uh. Actually, i think it’s already fixed hold up hold on guys. We might. We might have something here all right guys we are assessing damage. Now i did break the rear wing that broke off got some bad scratches there. Somehow, oh, let me get the glare off the car. Somehow i got some water and condensation in the engine bay, not sure about that. So, in regards to what broke it, didn’t break. What happened was, as you can see here. Basically, the this just came off. The rod end came off with a shock, so the shock and came off of the the little ball. So all we could do is pop that back on, i was gon na force it on there, but instead of forcing it on there, i’m gon na actually take this screw off and then actually put the ball back in the um shock.
End not a problem, not a problem at all, so we are not broken. The oil didn’t leak out of the shock or anything it’s perfectly fine, but we are going to gear down guys. I think it’s. Just too much we’ll try tsm. First, we will try tsm. First, but i think it was a good idea that they kept the xl5 in here instead of instead of the vxl, because i remember, whenever i was doing, vxl runs when i was doing speed runs with this um. With this gearing and this motor and esc. I was doing it with a high speed body, a body that created a whole bunch of down force. It was not the mustang body it just it. Doesn’T have enough aerodynamics which that’s fine. This car is supposed to look cool and be fun to drive um. This is set up for its own version of ludicrous mode and yes, it’s, just too dang freaking fast, so we’ll probably gear it down and put tsm back in it to make it a little bit more enjoyable to drive. So it was a first drive fail. Sorry about it guys, but we did get raised to tesla. That was a lot of fun. Ah guys i was watching the playback, and i noticed whenever i took see, see that that’s not supposed to do that. That means it’s freewheeling. I did lose the drive shaft dang it i kind of want to go back and look for it is that bad it’s like finding trying to find needle in a haystack, but i don’t know if they have parts for this 2.
0 yet or a 3.0. Yet so i might go back and look for it. I think we’re gon na go back and look for it dang it. Yes, guys it’s the middle of the night. We went back out to the little spot. We were in and we’re looking for that missing dog bone because i’m scared that traxxas doesn’t have it yet because it’s so new. Ah all right guys, i need to show you guys something right. So we parked right there right, evan gets out he’s like i’ll. Go look for it right, so he’s like all the way up there like looking for it, he might have stepped on it that’s how close he was to it geez evan. We did find it. We found it that’s what we lost let’s grab it all right, guys that is a wrap. What a crazy video, crazy term events total fail on the uh traxxas vortec 3.0, but we will come back. We will not be defeated by the bad first run of the traxxas vortec 3.0, but we did race tesla super cool.
