If you’re wondering what they are, they are titanium screws. I was trying to make some drift tires a little while back with titanium screws, they kind of work, but i need a. I need a bit more so that anyway check this out so armor skins. The name suggests it’s just for armor, but they’ve started doing some little vinyl skins for these uh little oh they’re wheels for them these little models. I think they’re also doing some for the wl toys as well, so look out for them. I’Ll leave a link in the description there’s, the one on my limitless. How cool does that look smoke? It like you stole it awesome designs. I love it when someone comes out with like a unique uh thing and i’ve definitely not seen chassis skins before so uh. Yeah awesome go check them out link in the description right so sg1603. How far so so you may have seen my previous video, where i made this into brushless. We’Ve got 60 kilometers an hour out of it using this remo hobby. I think it’s. I want to say 3500, i couldn’t remember on the video i made it either, but anyway, with that motor, a cheap 60 amp esc um 1800 milliamp hour, nanotech turner g, nanotech lipo 60 kilometers an hour which is about 37, now rc clan. If you go and check out his channel i’ll leave a link to that in the description as well. He put a little challenge out.
I think the challenge was set for me and the rc kiwis i’m sure he also challenged uh kevin talbot as well um to see if we could get these to a hundred mile. An hour now, i’m not sure they’re going to get to a hundred. But i like a good challenge, especially when it involves speed. So i went out today: i’ve changed the wheels i’ve changed. The motor and i’ve now got a 6080 kv race, star, it’s, a 2440 motor, so the same as the remo hobby. One, but it’s 6080 kv same 3s, lot same 3s, lipo same esc. All i’ve done is i’ve changed the wheels over. These are off of the little 116 remo hobby porsche, fit straight on the tires just they’re, just a little bit better they’re glued um. Well, apart from that, one more to see of that on the video yeah took the opportunity of having a dry day to take it out for a run, to see how close i could get to 100 mile an hour now, phil from rc clan he’s got 42. I think the rc kiwis their video will be up. Those will be up today. I saw a post today, saying i’m sure it’s today or tomorrow, um, so by the time you’ve seen this video theirs will all be up. I’Ll leave a link to that in the description and i’ll leave a link to um rc clans. If you’ve got one of these, you are free to enter into this just a bit of fun, nothing, nothing to get out of it other than other than gloating rights to have the fastest.
But this needs more work as you’ll see on the video i’m, not going to spoil anything and i’ve. Given you a little bonus at the end of the video we’ve got the one two four zero one: nine out from wl toys. I was doing a bit of extra testing with this so uh i took it out and i stuck it in this video cause. It wasn’t really. I wasn’t gon na record it anyway, but i thought, as we’re doing a speed run video. You might appreciate a bit more testing of this. There was a 20 mile an hour, crosswind i’m, making my excuses now and, as you’ll see i’m a little bit of an issue with the servo, and but this thing will be back. We are going to go faster. I’M, not sure i’m, still not sure i’m going to get 100 mile an hour, but doesn’t matter i’m having fun trying enjoy the video it is. We got about a 20 mile, an hour, um side wind today, so it’s coming in and going in that direction. Hopefully, we can counter that, although there’s no stability on this as it turns out i’ve got an issue with the survey. Oh god right, this isn’t going to go well but i’m just going to go for it, wow it’s, very windy straight over. Why did that roll? So quick, i was going really slow. Oh this isn’t going to work. This is definitely not going to work.
I can’t keep it straight, it’s, just rolling so easy. Why is it rolling so easy it’s? Hardly going at all Applause? Oh, i just popped a tire darren. It well that was a fail. Let’S see what we got anyway at 43 mile an hour, and that was uh half throttle. Do i risk it with a dodgy tyre let’s see if we can get a bit more than 43. Music wow so i’m just going to nail it? I think let’s just nail it see what happens. I know i don’t like it come on. Come on that wheel’s. Definitely had it now: Music, um, Music. There goes the phone let’s catch it, quick gotcha, right, let’s, see what we got. Let’S say: 49: it did roll quite a few times, but in my experience it doesn’t really make a massive difference. Um to the gps, especially because it’s rolling over in that direction, it doesn’t really accelerate it, but so i’ll take 49 as the unofficial speed and then we’ll come back after i’ve rebuilt. It it’s definitely 60 mile hour in this. I think definitely so, while we’re here, i might as well treat you to a little bit of testing of the w toys um one two, four: zero one: nine uh just a little bit testing today with it. Someone said to me that someone in the comments said to remove the sensor lead now. Last time i had this out um, i had issues with it, cutting out so we’re going to try it now without that sensor, lead on let’s go, get it straight.
First, oh rain’s, coming right: let’s get this done before the rain comes um yeah, someone said: take the sensor lead out and it has stopped cutting out so we’re going to try it now. I’Ve got 85 last time, battery’s, not full. I gave it a quick burst charge before we came out. Like i’ve said 20 mile an hour side, wind let’s go steady, you know it still, doesn’t feel as fast. It doesn’t feel like 85 anyway, it’s still rapid, though it amazes me how planted it is. So no stability on this, but it just it’s just so so solid just get our battery warm, oh, so windy, so so windy! 68! Yes, uh! Not as fast with that sensor lead off! Oh, i know what it might be. I turned the timing right up didn’t. I that might have slowed it down, let’s bring it in anyway, so 76 that’s, not the 85. We got last time. Definitely something that esc is not liking it. So i think, for the next run i’m going to change the motor i’ve got a new motor. I think i’m going to fire another esc in there see if we can push for 100 Music.
