That is what everyone seems to be talking about at the moment and i think it’s something to do with the announcement of the drag, slash that’s coming out in the next probably six weeks or so in the us it’s really popular. I think it’s slowly coming over to the uk, so i thought we need to get a drag car on the channel and i’ve got this from team associated. It looks awesome it’s. My first ever drag car. It comes ready to run in this video we’re going to get out of the box we’re going to have a good overview. Good look at it then we’re going to take out we’re going to do a speed run on 2s speed run on 3s, then i’m going to set it up and do some scale quarter. Mile runs and i’ll do that on 2s and 3s and we’ll see what this thing can do. Let’S get a little bit closer and let’s have a look at this thing right. There let’s have a look at what’s on the box. One tip scale: two wheel drive is brushless, like i mentioned, ready to run, it’s got a wheelie bar everything you want on the drag car it’s got some nice big chunky, rear tires and some smaller front ones. I think we just need to get out of the box rather than talking about the box. I’Ve been in a hobby 30 years, and this is my first drag car.
What a time to be alive, nice, transmitter box, i like the um team associated ones – are just a little bit of a stretch for the old one handed driving, but i feel nice in the hand nice foam, wheel, you’ve got your um throttle and steering trims and Jewelry on there this has got some um stability on it, but it’s not adjustable by the transmitter. I think you have to press a little button on the receiver set of tools, instructions for the transmitter. Look like some bigger wheelie bar yeah, bigger wheels for your wheelie bars and body mounts and some preload for your springs, that’s for the motor ready, motor, um and esc. A little brochure you don’t get these much anymore, that’s good, shout um associated set of stickers, they’re, not pre, cut though um i don’t, think i’ll be cutting them out. I like the clean look of it. I might cut a couple of them out but stickers, a very nice set of instructions, everything you need to know in there and a little certificate of conformity. I don’t often read all this sort of stuff, but it’s always nice to get a big pack up. It makes you think that you’ve actually bought a decent product doesn’t it you get some stuff. It comes with a little fold out one fold out bit of paper and actually a lot right. The car these come in um two other colors. They come in green and orange.
The green would have been nice for um for the camera, but they didn’t have a green in stock. So purple it was. It is a very nice metallic purple. Look at them rear tires very nice, oh yeah! This could be the first of a few drag cars. Let me know in the comments, if you want me to get the uh the new low see when it comes out, and also if enough of you view these videos of mine, i might be able to afford the drag slash as well when that comes out. But i can’t imagine that’s going to be too cheap, but wow this thing looks good and for the price ready to run talking of prices, i can’t remember what the low c one is. Is it i’m gon na talk in dollars, um because i don’t think it’s for sale in the uk? Yet i think the lows is three: nine nine, the drag slash is going to be 500 issues and i reckon this thing under 300. I reckon you can get this for in the uk it’s uh 200 and i want to say 250, but i can’t remember it might be a little bit more than that anyway. Let’S get the body off let’s have a look underneath. Oh, this seems to be so much fun. Oh, i sound like a kid at christmas don’t i that’s a nice shot, there’s your wheelie bar. You got your um, i think.
Is it say on it. I can’t remember what size brushless motors on there. Let me check oil shocks, the wheelie bars adjustable, so you can um get yourself a little bit more room because at the moment it’s. Quite if i stand like that, that’s on the pretty much on the floor, if you want a little bit more lift on your front wheels, which i want i’m gon na put that up brush your speed controller, your receiver’s in there. This is the battery tray little bit of foam servo in there really nice, the oil shocks, look lovely on this nice and soft up front. I reckon i’m gon na find another favorite pastime with drag cars, especially because now we’ve got these things. These sky rc’s that you can set up um to do top speed. You do naught to sixes and you can do distance as well, so you could easily set up. I can’t remember what scale quarter of a mile is for one tenth um, but you can set up on here. So you can do your time to one like quarter or eighth of mile drags. That would be really cool bog standard plastic chassis. But i can’t imagine these gon na be you’re, not gon na be taking me to the skate park. So well someone might, but i won’t be and that’s enough talking. I could sit and look at this all day. This is just gon na look, awesome just mount it on a shelf.
You can get a kit version as well. It doesn’t come. I don’t think it comes with wheels. I don’t think it comes with a body price. Wise i’d. Maybe go for the ready to run and then you can always take bits off or sell the body separately i’m going to get a different body for this as well i’ve seen a really nice body. I want it’s out of stock at the moment, but i’m going to get that probably going to get um my resident body, shell painter, to paint it for me, mr shark fat. If you’ve not seen his work, you’re missing out, it is awesome, but anyway let’s charge a 2s let’s charge. A 3s let’s. Take this to a nice stretch of road and let’s burn some rubber i’m excited for this one. Here we are guys ready for some quarter of a mile runs a top speed run first, but this thing ready to go 2s. The wheel speed’s, not great, so i don’t think we’re going to go. Do any crazy speeds, but let’s just see what it will do on 2s, oh it’s, lovely and smooth. What we need to do is sort the sort the steering trim out. Let’S get it straight. Obviously, if we want to do a little drag race, we need to get it straight, so this has got stability on it. You have to change it on the receiver. Now it comes with eight settings. Eight level eight is off they’re, so smooth and i think it’s default level.
Four, so i’ve put it to level six, because i have seen on some people’s videos that it gets a little bit of speed wobble on 3s it’s. Fine on this that it sounds so. Nice, that is a good mesh. Listen as it goes past, if you can hear it’s a bit windy. How nice does that sound right anyway, let’s bring it in see how fast it is. Let’S get straight into doing a little quarter of a mile which is 132 feet there. We go 24 mile an hour, so 2s 24 mile an hour, so we should see over 30 on three i’ll, be honest with you: i’ve not looked online at the speeds of these right. So on this gps you go to drag so you can do your speed! There so you do not to 60 or you can do distance so on the distance, one zero and i’m going to put a hundred and say 138 132 and i’m gon na have to double check so zero to a hundred we’re gon na do distance zero to 132 feet now i’m, not going to start yex. I want to warm the tires up as all good drag. Races do Music liner up. This is my first drag race guys. My first drag car 100 naught 232 feet. Let’S! Go you ready here we go. I don’t know how far 132 feet is i’m just going to nail it that’s got to be it isn’t.
It it’s got to be 132 feet, let’s bring it back here we go. What do we do that in then four seconds let’s try again naught to 132 feet, let’s go. This thing, looks so cool right, then read 4.1 seconds 25 mile an hour 0.89 g, nice right 3s time. So 2s 2s is the 4000 milliamp hour 50c gens ace and for the 3s we’ve got these big 5500 milliamp hour 50c hard case from jen’s ace as well. Looking at these tyres, i might need to set the uh the camber a bit better anyway, we’re running it stuck out the box. I’Ll do some tuning for the uh for the next slot right 3s let’s go a speed, run it first. Oh no signal come on. Speed run 25 on two, oh that’s, better now, we’re talking, oh yeah. We can lift the front wheels as well that’s better. Why do you want? I guess, there’s two s classes, three s classes for drag racing right then. I reckon i reckon 32 ‘ wow ‘ mile an hour awesome right. I’M gon na do two runs this time: i’m gon na. Do it on this surface and i’m gon na? Do it on the smooth surface. If we can improve our times so drag 132 feet, not ready, yet warm the size up. We’Ll come here, you Music! Here we go. What do you reckon? What did we get 4.1 on 2 3.2, nice with a little 1.
1 g? That is good. 3.2 let’s. Do another run? Oh, we got 40 mile an hour as well. Let’S do another run on this surface, then we’re going to do two over there. Here we go 3.2 to be 3.15 and 1.17 g again 40 mile an hour right, let’s see if we can beat the threes, so we are going ever so slightly downhill, but always tested the same. So it would give us a good idea. It was good fun. This right, ready, 3.12 to beat 3.09 1.13 now it’s, going slightly off in that direction, so i’m just going to trim it up a little bit bit straighter now, let’s see if we can break into the t’s Music that looked fast. Did you see it pull the front wheels up as well? That was awesome, Music, i’m, confident, i’m, confident we’ve done it? Oh no it’s slower! Maybe i didn’t but look 1.6 g right. We need to do that again because i think i don’t know if i went all the way to 130 t that was an awesome launch. I want to do that again: Music, no, it wasn’t as good that time. It really hooked up that last time, didn’t it all in all what an epic drag car. I am definitely gon na have a look at oh yeah, look it’s wearing slightly on the body. There look i’m, definitely gon na look at getting a couple more different ones. Get the low c maybe get the traxxas, maybe build one as well.
It’S gon na be awesome right. Just watching guys. This thing i love it i’m gon na see. If i can get some there, nice shots of it like doing wheelies and stuff for you now.
