Sorry what’s, going on guys hope y’all are having a great day out there today. So i am off location. I am in detroit michigan right now, uh we’re out here for a few days for work, but i brought a few cars with me and we’re. Still gon na have a little fun um. We might be going to a skate park here. Um tomorrow, it’s gon na get a little warmer out, but uh i got a few things going on. I just left the local hobby shop i’ll show we got all right guys. Well, now that the typhoon is uh finished up in the bathroom there, we can carry on with this video. So anyway, i found a local hobby shop close to my hotel here, it’s called carlton hobbies in uh waterford michigan here um, i don’t know i’m in auburn hills, michigan, so it’s pretty close to me really nice people in here guys. So if you’re in here, i definitely go check those guys out anyway, i was in there roaming around checking out a few things and um. I was been thinking about getting these since i’ve broken uh, two of these now on the x maxx. So i picked up a set of the anodized aluminum shock caps for the x max over there. So i stopped breaking these darn things. Also, i decided to pick up another set of tires for the typhoon 6s or any of them with a 17 millimeter, but i found these low c street tires and they feel really nice there’s, a tiny bit of cushion but they’re pretty stiff um.
I think they’ll hook up really good on the road. Hopefully they don’t explode with the typhoon with the pro the current gearing on this thing, because they do have a 20 tooth on this thing. So she’s ripping pretty good, but um we’re gon na get these thrown on there. I also had to pick up a wrench because i forgot one forgot to bring one with me, but it’s pretty nice, so it’s got the 17 uh 23 8 and 7 millimeter on it. So nice little wrench but i’m gon na get these tires thrown on this thing and i’ll bring you guys back when we got her together, all right guys, we got all the tires fitted up on this thing. I’Ll tell you what it looks awesome. I love the look of the yellow rims on this type and it just looks: has a nice look to it but uh? I guess time will tell to see how these tires hold up. They definitely are slightly softer than like the hoons, but one of the reasons i got them uh was due to the size, as you can see, they’re about the same size as the stock dirt tires, so you’re not going to lose that top speed, like you do With the hoons, because they’re a lot smaller, so don’t know how they’re going to hold up to the speeds they might explode but we’re going to find out if you guys are interested. This is the part number here it’s, the los a 17759.
Are these uh tires from losi so far fit nice? They look really nice, so we’re gon na go ahead and give this thing a rip here and now see how she runs with them. Also guys i picked this up today. Beside the hobby shop was a harbor freight and i was in a roaming around and i had all my controllers on the way up here banging around in the back seat. I thought you know what i got ta find a way to protect the controllers. So i did this picked up one of these uh cases. They have harbor freight. I think it was 30 bucks, 35 bucks – something like that, but i just ripped out that’s got the pull away foam. I got the dx5 down in there nice and padded. I have the traxxas one in here now this one, i kind of overlap a little bit bigger to kind of fit multiple controllers, and i also have down in there my phone month to record so kind of worked out great i’m kind of excited uh. At least now, if i travel with this thing, got a way to protect those controllers, so enough yakking guys let’s go outside and give the typhoon a rip all right, guys, we’re, making our way outside here tight, fit out there and uh stretch his legs a little Bit all right guys! Well, we got the typhoon 6s out here uh. I don’t think that these tires are going to hold up i’m.
Pretty sure one of the back ones have already come on glued a bit. Oh damn yeah and they’re a little slick on this black top on the harder, concrete, they’re hooking up pretty decent, but on this stuff they are a little slick right. I’Ll. Try to give him a ripped on this straight away. I can’t even get on it. The whole way it just wants to come backwards: whoa jeez, oh yeah, those tires are done. They do not hold up to the speeds very well. Nice tires, but uh they don’t deal with the high speeds very well: oh geez yeah those tires are shot. I think this back one yeah that back one’s completely gone yep yeah the tires are not gon na hold up at all. Oh, it sounds terrible. Things are just flapping in the breeze, so speed tires. They are not that front driver’s side, one is just ballooning and blowing up the rims are oh geez, though Applause man, Applause, the tires are done: yeah they’re grinding down the rims. Now now the tires are done, so i might just kill them. I can’t keep the even the front end down on it, though oh right into the curb come on, get some traction: oh yeah, she’s blowing. Oh it had to roll out there. Those tires are done guys: yeah, they’re, toast, guys we’re limping back to the room busted. The wing in half explode the tires yeah ps these tires are not good for speed runs all right, guys well, that’s going to do it for the typhon video today um.
Unfortunately, these tires did not hold up very long at all um. All four of them came: unglued um, the other ones completely blew a part up here. Uh completely ripped the rubber um tore it apart. So you know if you’re gon na run these things on 3s, they probably hold up pretty good and not be nice tires. But if you’re going to run them on your forest or 6s, i definitely wouldn’t recommend them uh. They just don’t, take the speeds uh very well. They all come and glued and exploded. So that was a fail for the tires, but uh i was worth giving them a try and seeing how they held up, but also i had a fan: uh blade break on the esc fan, so my esc fan stopped working. I don’t know when exactly but uh she did get a little warm, so i called it quits and i didn’t want to burn up the esc or motor on the poor thing. We also caught right when i was coming back to the hotel i wheeled her backwards and the fin or the back wing caught right into a drainage. Manhole snapped the rear wing a half, so i got a little bit of repairs to do on this thing. I do have another set of tires with me, so if we go hit the bmx track while we’re up here, i do have another set of tires for it, but uh the wings seen better days.
