In a moment of insanity, while I was injured sitting on the couch, I ordered this from Russia and it finally arrived and it has exceeded all my expectations. Just look at it. A Russian guy actually built this in his garage. It cost me 800. It looks like the real freaking thing. I ordered this back in february when I couldn’t even walk. I was sitting there like all I was doing was rc car stuff because I couldn’t ride my bike. Let’S crack into this hey look made by custom rc, oh yeah. Oh, my god, no way in the pictures it looked like a Sherp, a mother, freaking Sherp what’s in here. This is an unboxing experience. Oh yeah, okay, so it’s a skid steer, so it just gets controlled like that. Oh this is detailed. Oh my god! This is so scale. This is sick, so we want to take this Sherp out and play with it, but we got to charge it and he left a little charge port right here you just plug it in and then you just plug the other end into uh. Well, i didn’t expect that it’s powered up it just plugs in like a Tesla, good god. This is the sickest thing. I’Ve ever seen. Look at the tires it’s just like a real Sherp Kanye. So if you’ve never seen a real Sherp it’s, a Russian built all terrain vehicle that’s made for stuff. That no other vehicle is really that good for, like ice and snow and brush and just deep, deep thick mud they’re, pretty much impossible to get stuck they’re very possible to flip, which is why they’re, probably not the best for rock crawling.
They can drive through water they’re, absolutely ridiculous, and this one that is custom built can actually do pretty much everything that the real Sherp can, which is insane, or so they say it can that’s what i want to test today. I would venture to guess that a lot of people that buy these and kind of baby them um we’re, not gon na … we’re, not gon na be babying. It we’re gon na see what it can do. So it operates like a skid steer, there’s, no suspension. There is no steering works, just like a real Sherp. So can it go down this slope without flipping over forwards? Let’S go really slow and see. If it can. Oh, she made it wash off them tires. It got damaged guys, it got damaged and it hurts it hurts. Oh, my god. This is one of the sickest things I’ve ever owned and now it’s it’s a victim of me. I think if i can get everything yeah there, we go it’s sort of back together. Now it appears to still be Sherpin’. This thing was all cracked up. We just took it quite savagely through the water let’s see what’s going on in the inside there’s a little water in there, but not much. I think if we glue everything back, shut, really well uh, there won’t be as much water breaching in here, but these days, like ESC’s and batteries and all that stuff are made to be pretty water resistant and submersible, so I’m not worried about it.
So the show goes on you think it’s just like um, because the motors are hot and there’s water on them. Hopefully, yeah let’s uh turn it off. Probably yeah, probably turn it off it doesn’t smell good. Where did this window go like the charging port? I should have covered it that wasn’t, smart um, yeah let’s, let her cool down. I think she’s fine it’s time for me to straighten things. Oh, that was the waterproofing right. There see the way it’s like glued in it’s, incredible that it’s held up to what we’ve done to it today. This thing looks incredible: it performs incredible, but I think, like a real Sherp, you probably don’t want it like tumbling down a hill or something yeah. I have no self control. I have a tendency to just push things to the limit right away, just to see what they can handle and like at the end of the day. It is a hand built custom scale. Rc car it’s meant to be scale. It’S meant to look amazing it’s meant to do all the things a real Sherp does but it’s not a TRX 4. You can’t just smash it into trees over and over and over again and expect it to work. Honestly, I think i can repair a lot of this. I think when we get home with some ca glue, epoxy duct tape, rope. I almost want to buy another one and like treat it nice, you think it’s under warranty, so we definitely just beat the cat excrement out of this thing.
So we’re gon na go back to Berm Peak, give it some TLC and some ca glue and then get back to it. Oh man, so the top piece there’s, so many cracks there’s like a big crack down here. Once i get this all together, i think it’s gon na be more rigid and i’m, not gon na feel so bad about it. I mean this guy Slav’d over a workbench for who knows how long and then, in one minute I cracked the whole thing up shout out to my Russian viewers. You guys make some really really cool stuff. I know. Sometimes our countries are at odds, but I have nothing against Russian people. I’M. Half Russian and I love you guys – I’m glad you watch and this thing’s freaking cool. This is working surprisingly well. Different people have different attitudes about you know when they create things. When I create things, i want them to get used like when I build mountain bike features, I want people to ride them really hard and Sergey if you’re watching this. I hope that you are proud of me for driving this thing to the limits and seeing what it can handle, because I absolutely love it. This is way more rigid than it was before yeah yeah. We we fixed it perfectly now. The other problem we have is this wheel is crashing into the fender here, because the whole damn motor came out it’s almost as if the whole body moved or something.
Oh. This is incredible. What this guy did he built portal axles into the motor? So look the motor is offset see it’s closer to this side than it is to this side. So all I have to do is re insert this in the right orientation and it’s not crashing into there anymore. It now has the proper clearance it’s back to normal. I think we’re good to go again. Okay, I’m really impressed the lower part. The metal chassis is stiff as hell. The inside is definitely water, resistant and it’s just built with a lot of care. If you were to drive it a little bit not like, I did, uh you’d probably be in pretty good shape. If you’re interested in getting one of these it’s gon na be a very long waiting list. I had to wait like six months for it, and that was before I posted a video and let the whole world know that this guy makes these so prepare to wait like five years, you’re, probably better off trying to get a real Sherp. I hope you enjoyed coming along with me and testing this thanks for driving with me today. I’Ll see you next time. Oh all right, we got to do the proper reveal. I just turned off the remote and it just went.
