We have the traxxas, 2s, 5800 milliamp and then we’re going to run it on the 3s we’re going to compare the speeds now guys keep in mind. This is my first dragster i’ve never owned a dragster uh. If you watch my videos, you see mainly uh monster trucks, short horse trucks. You know things of that nature, um, but i’m excited to see how this is gon na go down. We have the willy bar installed. We have it on the recommended traxxas setting on the willie bar, which is one notch down from the top. We have the original wheels that came stock installed on the willy bar there. It does come with a smaller pair in the kit we’re gon na run it like this. I did blow the street out a little bit: um it’s a lot of rocks and uh debris here on the street, so hopefully that doesn’t affect our run. First off i’m. Gon na test, it guys to see, looks like our steering trim is pulling off to the right a little bit. Yep it’s, pulling off to the right, so we’re gon na give that a little lift there all right guys again. We have the 2s battery installed. 5800 milliamp we’re going to run that first, because from what i understand, 2s is the battery. You run whenever you run races, that’s one of the rules, uh so we’re, going to try that first and then we’ll check out the 3s and see that we’ll.
Compare the differences all right here. We go guys i’m, just going to take off normally i’m going to build up some speed just to get used to it and then we’ll. Try out this switch here on the on the radio, see how that works. So let’s get it that’s full throttle. Oh, i was trying to avoid that side over there, because there’s a lot of rocks let’s, try it again full throttle. Well, that drives really really smooth guys and straight it’s, pretty straight full throttle yeah guys. It drives pretty straight i’m, giving minimal input here on the wheel. Um let’s try that again and this time we’re gon na try to use the uh the trans brake here on the radio a little bit lined up we’re gon na hold the button in set our throttle let’s let off and see what it does. Oh, that is dope that’s, pretty cool, guys, that’s, pretty cool. I was wondering how that would work. That is pretty cool, guys we’re going to do that again. I just wanted to. I didn’t do a full run. I just wanted to see how that was going to do, because the last thing i want to do guys is flip this on its lid. You know right out of the gate like i did. The four tick tour that body up on the first run, but that is pretty cool guys we’re gon na try that again get more here in the center, where i blew out the street here, it’s a little cleaner right here: yeah we’re, good, okay, all right guys! We’Re lined up we’re gon na hold the button.
In again, we got it held in we’re gon na set our throttle. We’Re gon na go full throttle this time. Hopefully nothing bad happens all right here we go we’re gon na set it we’re gon na. Let off that’s pretty cool guys i like how that takes off like that and the guy at traxxas says that it’s a whole lot quicker than you actually squeezing the trigger. I agree just letting off that button. I mean that’s instant, instant takeoff, guys with that truck. All right now that i’m getting a little more used to it and the trim is pretty center. As long as we stay here in this lane, where i cleaned, we should be all right, we shouldn’t hit any rocks or anything so we’ll line it up here center. All right here we go guys this time, we’re gon na run it all the way down the street. Now we’re gon na have to stop at the end there, because it’s unlevel, we don’t, want to bottom out. Okay, we’re gon na hold the button in set our throttle. Here we go guys we’re gon na let off the button that’s full throttle. We’Re gon na have to break before we hit that other part of the street, because it’s uneven we’ll bring it back. This is full throttle, not bad guys, not bad at all. This thing drives pretty dang straight i’m, impressed it’s kind of quiet too, for what it is it’s full throttle, we’ll bring it back full throttle.
That’S full throttle, guys remember: running 2s that’s, pretty impressive i’m. Pretty impressed with that guys, this drives just as straight as my uh slash ultimate so really smooth guys really smooth on the street i’m impressed Music. This is pretty cool. We’Ll. Do a couple more passes guys with the 2s, then we’re going to throw the 3s in there and i’m going to show you an up close view of that trans break in action. So let’s get it all right! Guys we’ve done a few passes with the 2s uh lipo 5800 milliamp. One thing i wanted to show you guys that i missed in the unboxing check this out inside the body here. It looks like it’s already set up for led lights to be installed. If you guys can see that that’s pretty cool that’s, pretty neat guys, so we might be installing some leds underneath that body just to give it that scale. Look. You know and here’s a battery we’re using we’re using a two cell 5800. That is what you would run if you were in a competition from what i understand so now, we’re going to switch it out we’re going to put that 3s in there and see what kind of speed we get all right guys. We changed the battery out we’re running a 3s 4000 milliamp that’s. The only battery i had charged up at the moment, but we’re going to go ahead and check it out test it out see how it performs differently, as opposed from 2s to 3s.
So let’s see what it can do. Okay guys here we go we’re going to go ahead, we’re going to set the break full throttle. Here we go guys whoa a lot more power with the 3s guys a lot more power with the 3s we’re getting some willy action going now, all right guys, we’re going to launch it again. We set our uh break full throttle we’re going to go ahead and get it we’re going to let off on it. Now. Here we go whoa big difference, guys very big difference from uh 2s to 3s. This is awesome guys we got the brakes set we’re setting our throttle, we’re gon na go ahead and let off it now. Here we go kind of spun out there on that run guys. There are a lot of rocks here and gravel on the street. This thing is awesome, though guys can’t wait to do a speed run with this, with the gps, we’re gon na test that out probably on another video right now. I just wanted to get oh that’s awesome. That’S awesome, guys i’m impressed, i got ta, say i’m liking. This truck a lot it drives really straight guys. The tires are really gripping the road we’re not getting much spin out. We are on launch but, like i said this isn’t the best street for this uh type of truck, or this type of uh racing that we’re doing here. The launch uh brake works really well guys, i’m, really enjoying that.
It is a whole lot quicker than you, squeezing the trigger on takeoff. We’Ll. Do a couple of passes guys here on 3s, see how it performs. I am noticing we’re getting some wheelie action now that we’re using the 3s battery, so let’s see what it can do. Let’S see if we can hold up willy all the way down the street. All right guys, i got ta, say right out of the gate: i’m really liking. This truck i’ve never really been into drag racing, but i think i’m gon na start, because this is pretty sweet guys. I could see why people would like this. These uh types of vehicles, they’re fun to drive i’m, pretty sure it’d be very fun to race. One of these they look so scale and it’s just it’s a new experience for me. So i’m really liking it uh. This may not be the last dragster you see on the channel now guys because i’m really digging this truck uh, but as far as the way the truck drives guys, i got ta say it drives straight as an arrow guys. When i say straight, i mean straight it’s up there with the traxxas slash ultimate as far as its handling and the you know, the ultimate has the front and rear, sway bars and all the hop ups to make it drive so well. This truck out of the gate i’m telling you can compete when it comes to uh how good it drives as far as how straight it drives.
It can definitely compete with the slash ultimate in that category. It’S up there with it guys i’m telling you um, the wheelie bar handle is pretty good. We were able to bust some wheelies, i don’t know if you guys saw it in the run. Uh we weren’t able to hold a willy, because i got kind of iffy about it. I don’t want to flip this truck on its lid on the on the first run and scratch the body all up. So i was careful in this maiden run guys um. This isn’t the perfect terrain. The street has got a lot of bumps in it. It’S got a lot of gravel on it it’s uneven in areas i mean it’s, just not a good location to run a truck like this, but for the maiden i think, it’ll. Suffice we will do some more videos with this truck guys, definitely we’re going to change out the willy bar, maybe customize it a little bit, maybe change the settings on there raise it up lower it all the way down we’re going to play with this truck. Quite a bit guys and see uh what we get out of it. Um again, i have got comments on my unboxing. The truck is a little pricey, guys uh starting out at 500. That is pretty pricey for a ride like this, but um from what i’m. Seeing so far right now guys you’re getting what you pay for guys, it’s really fun to drive like i said, the the control.
The handling on this truck is really really good. Out of the box. I mean i’m really impressed with it guys the scale look of it. I mean the truck just looks awesome guys and that purple just really pops i’m really digging it. The tires held up well on the street. It does handle differently with a 3s there’s, a huge difference on takeoff between 2s and 3s, as you saw in the video um, it spins out a little bit harder with the 3s. Understandably, i mean we got more power, it’s a little harder to control with the 3s on launch, which makes sense. I mean you got all that power built up you let off that that break and uh it just goes guys. One thing i got to say: i am impressed with this break on the radio here it does its job, it does what it’s supposed to do. It is a whole lot faster than you actually squeezing the trigger like you would like that um i find it a whole lot easier to you know, set the brake set, your throttle, get your hand ready for the wheel. You know in case you need to make some corrections on takeoff and just letting off that throttle guys, and it goes um good job with this truck uh traxxas i’m really impressed. I really like it a lot. I think they did a real good job with this. One i appreciate you watching if you like what we do here on the channel, make sure to like comment and subscribe.
It really helps me out.
