Today we have the overly anticipated long awaited and easily the most hyped up and talked about rc car of 2021, and that has to be the wltoys, 104 0 0001, also known as the match. So guys, there’s been a lot of controversial around this rc car, some say: it’s, probably the best wl toys that’s ever been released. Some say it isn’t, something that has some really bad chassis flex, which i’m gon na try and find out for you guys today. If that’s, actually overly important and also coming up in another video, because this isn’t going to be the only video i do about this, one – is a carbon fiber chassis we’re, going to see if it actually fits. How well it works, and does it actually make it any better we’re also going to chuck it a brushless system in it, but that is for another video in today’s video we’re gon na be doing a review on the wltoys one: zero four zero zero one. So, as you all know, we love to do some handling test speed, test durability tests. I love to really put these rc cars through their paces. Even if they’re not meant to do it, we’re gon na, do it anyways, you guys might as well know what you are getting when you pay for it uh speaking of paying for it. I just actually sent this one by banggood. So a huge thank you to banggood, for i guess, sponsoring this video by sending out the wl toys one zero four: zero zero one! Now guys if you are new to the channel, my name is matthew sim, as you probably guessed from the start of the video.
I do unboxings reviews crazy stuff with rc casa, make sure to subscribe by hitting the subscribe button just below this video, like the video and hey, say hello in the comments yeah let’s get into it. Okay, guys let’s start off with the box. It is a match. I guess that’s why i’m kind of confused with the name but anyways – i don’t, know where they get that from. If anyone knows comment below it’s 45 kilometers out of the box, it’s got a 2.4 gigahertz radio, it is ready to run, and it is four wheel. Drive now taking a look at this side, it is waterproof, it is qualified shocks and adjustable rings, uh, an optional metal spur and diffs i’m, not sure about that guys uh, i guess that’s something else that’s coming out, but as for this, this was not optional. Uh ball bearings: uh. That side is just a bunch of info. This one obviously says the battery we get. We got the two cell 2200 milliamp large capacity battery. It is a 10th scale. Rc car and it’ll do climbing up to 45 degrees. Apparently, and of course this is just the radio and on the bottom, there is nothing to be seen so let’s crack this bad boy open. Oh, you guys beat me to it. Alrighty guys in the box straight away, we’re going to see the wing it does not come attached. We will have to attach it. Luckily, i’ve got my handy little toolbox here, uh, but that’s.
Pretty easy, we’ve got the charger and obviously we’ve got some tools that it comes with. So i don’t even need my toolbox and it also comes with a manual of spare parts. I am losing parts uh, so wheel, wrench, all that good stuff – and here is the car. Take off these two side pieces let’s, throw them away and out comes the rc car wow. That is heavier than i expected controller, okay same as all the other wl toys. What i love about these small controllers is that it’s so easy to control. One handed they’re very nice and like with any rc car we’re gon na need four double a batteries. Now let’s take a look on the inside man. This really looks like a race rc car tires are kind of hard compound, doesn’t feel like there’s any foam in there, though it does glide nice and smoothly, really beefy driveshafts and a regular sized servo that is going to make it so much easier to upgrade. Unfortunately, it’s still a five wire, not a three wire battery. There is our 540 canned motor and there is our esc, i believe, it’s just a 2s esc. As this chassis, the one that’s meant to be made out of rubber bands. Apparently, honestly, unless you are bashing, this thing really really hard, i don’t think we’re going to have any problems at all, but also guys. This is a super cheap, rc car. So you kind of got ta expect to get what you pay for in this circumstance.
Just from my first opinion, i i think i’m getting a lot from my money here, and i think this has to be so far, probably the best value for money rc car 2021.. The suspension is beautiful, it’s like really nice and soft. One thing i really love about these wr toys is parts availability and also aftermarket support as well so, for instance, like modification there’s, a lot of people in the community that mod these there’s definitely room to upgrade and also, if you want to keep it stocked, there’s Plenty of pass support if you do end up breaking something let’s get this thing powered on and let’s. Do a speed run there’s enough technical information for you guys to find out out there. It is an rc car and it is an epic one at that. So let’s get it on for a speed, run fully proportional, both steering and acceleration with forward and reverse all righty guys: gps i’m gon na hit track start and, of course, let’s see how fast we go our initial thoughts. It is it’s slow guys, but it’s, but it’s actually really lively, let’s get it full throttle, bow and steady, wins race. Music did stop and read 22 miles an hour. Let’S see what that is in kilometers 36 kilometers an hour. Okay, guys so definitely know what it’s claimed to do. I think we’re going to have to run it on a 3s if we want to get 45.
all right, we’re off road, let’s, see track start and let’s come back. Full throttle read 35 kilometers now so, basically the same off road as it is on road. Now it is 3s time the esc that i’m using is just a brushed one. That i’m testing out for banggood at the moment. There’Ll be a video on that, but i can’t show you but i’m just running a van 3s battery in here. So let’s test it out much faster. All right track start let’s, see how fast we go Applause, so i might just hit the 45 kilometers now that we’re looking for guys let’s get it full throttle. Music, read 28 miles an hour, let’s see what that is in kilometers 45 kilometers an hour. That is exactly what it says on the box, guys that’s enough speed, running let’s, go really test. This thing out: okay, now it’s time to see how long the battery will last on a single charge, i broke cut off and the time is exactly 10 minutes. So guys, 10 minutes for a 110 scale is actually fairly good on a 2200 milliamp and about what i expected, i was hoping for about 15 minutes. But 10 minutes is fine as well, because it is a 110 scale. Rc car, you can definitely put bigger batteries in it all right, guys, we’re at the skate park this morning, man, it doesn’t, look good, but he’s so cold. All right, guys, we’re going to start off with the 2s and see how it handles.
Oh wow. She jumps really smoothly my hand is really nice. Oh cassie slap all right. It jumps really really well, i’ll, probably send it off here. Oh it doesn’t, cindy Applause. Oh, what are you doing down there? Buddy, Music hi guys so far, this aluminium chassis is holding up really really well, so send it off the stairs Music, Music, guys it’s, still only on 2s Music Applause, i transition the camera ended up cutting out because of the dead battery, and i forgot to charge One, however, these are my final conclusions on the wl toys. One zero four zero has already got a brushless system in it. So was chassis flex, a big deal, the chassis definitely does flex. However, it hasn’t prompted any issues so far, so i think honestly yeah. It might flex, but if it doesn’t cause a problem, what’s the big deal plus you can go and get carbon fiber chassis, braces, i’ll, link, those and the car in the description below, and that will definitely harden it right up considering this is just made for racing Uh, i actually think it’s perfectly fine. One of the cons i’d have to say are the tires, so these tires are only after a couple of batteries and yeah, so they wear out really really quick overall. Do, i think, it’s the best rc car of 2021. I definitely think it is the best value rc car of 2021, honestly guys, probably the best beginner rc car.
The only thing i wish they’d do is they’d. Do a brushless system as well as the brush system, as this is probably going to be a bit too slow for those beginners that are a bit older. But it will be perfect for kids, but also in saying that it’s really really easy to upgrade. And you can get a really cheap brushless system and combo i’ll, even link that in the description below as well. For you guys, i know you guys have been waiting for the x max to get some upgrades and it is finally coming guys. I’Ve got my trenches in oh, these are just they’re massive look. The size of my head i’ve got big head uh, so these trenches are going on as well as the max 6 combo, as well as the sevox 2290 servo, and a radio link transmitter and all that good stuff that is coming up next.
