So i figure! Why not do it now let’s get it out of the way let’s get it out of the way let’s get it out of the way let’s move this, and i will show you what we’re looking at this was sent to me, and i was like oh hell: Yeah i haven’t had one of those in a long time so it’s an rc car right now, there’s two different ways: you can get rc car. You can get it a toy uh. You can get a toy version or hobbyist version, so there’s, hobby and toy, and those are the two uh Music. I don’t know uh categories. I guess these things come in and from what i’m understanding is that a toy is something that you can’t work on and and you can’t customize, where a hobbyist car you can change everything. I mean everything um. This thing i took it out last night just to see how it was gon na roll, and this thing was cool man. I got ta say it was pretty fast i’m pretty righteous. Now i don’t know everything about these things. So i’m, not gon na go crazy and tell you a bunch of stuff that you’re, probably gon na, want to know if you’re seriously into this stuff. But what i am gon na do is go over some stuff. I do notice that it looks like i may have lost a headlight cover right there, there’s headlights up here and here so you have your fog lights headlights.
They work. I was at night driving this last night and it worked out great. So what this is is the wl toys wltoys one word and the part number for this thing is one two, four two seven it’s a 112 size and i believe they make a one. Two, four two eight that’s a 110 size, a little bigger. They have different things, um, so that’s. What this thing is it’s called a crawler. Oh, you can see it right. There that’s what it is, but it’s really cool man, it’s really cool. So i took it out and i was like well let’s figure it out, but first i had to open it and figured out what it does come with. It comes with instructions that i did not read. This is a little wrench for your lugs. On your tires, this is a little screwdriver to take off your body um. I had this thing rolling all over the place. Last night flipping and nothing broke. It was pretty good. Maybe i lost that um. That was about it, but you can take off this whole body and you can see the the whole frame around there. Um let’s go over some of the stuff. I do know here’s your battery right here. This cable and this cable go together and that’s what plugs it into the car. So what we’ll do is we’ll just boom. Just like that now it’s ready to go this little cable right here, that’s to charge your battery and to charge your battery it’s pretty simple.
I have it under everything, here’s a little charger. This comes with the kit it’s regular, usb you plug it in i did the one i have it came with an extra battery, so i have two batteries all charged up and ready to go. Four double a batteries powers, your radio or your controller. However, you want to call it now. It’S got some functions on here that i don’t really know how to use um these right here, i think like one of them stabilizes the steering, and maybe one of them does something. So if let’s say it was crooked, like that, i wonder if we could do that right now and it’s got this little button, uh right here that says mode and it one two. Three four: you hit four different modes: there’s your power button, um here’s your steering, drive and reverse um. I don’t know what the hell the modes are for again, i didn’t open up the instructions, maybe if i did i’d know, but i figured out the steering thing. Just by playing with it so i’m going to power it on boop, so there you go, it’s got a little red light bam it’s on so right here, there’s a power button underneath once you’re all plugged in boop. There you go how’s. My headlights look oh that’s kind of cool right um, i thought so so now i notice let’s see the steering looks like it’s going a little bit this way.
So what i’m going to do is i’m going to turn one of these little dials here and see. If i can’t hear it talk and see how it moves so i’m, just trying to straighten out my steering – and i don’t know if one works without the other, i have no idea there’s this, this other dial right here, the lower one. I think that puts it into a higher power bracket. I think that’s, what that does. So, i think that’s, pretty pretty good on the on the steering. Let’S see it’s got all really cool components. All these um. All these are very flexible, so they’re not going to be breaking that easy. This thing can slam all over the place and it’s not going to break so we have there’s your four wheel, drive and there’s your reverse four wheel drive, so it doesn’t feel like a whole lot of power there. So i wonder if we turn this this rear. One, oh maybe that’s it so that’s the lower power, okay, so that’s what it does now. I see now i’m getting it just by learning. Turn this all the way up and it’s going to give you you see the difference, more speed, more power. Now this thing’s supposed to be able to go like between 17 and 25 miles an hour max so it’s, pretty fast um. What we’re going to do is we’re going to take it out and we’re just going to roll it now.
I’M, not very good with these, and what i mean by that is i’m, not very good. With these like going. This way is fine because i’m steering like this, i start turning and going the other way. I don’t know where this thing’s going again: i’m. Barely a novice they sent me this i’m gon na play with it. I’M gon na have some fun um, who knows but let’s go before it gets dark and see if we can’t set up a jump and get it going all right. So first things. First i’m. Just gon na turn it on and show you just it zipping around here and then maybe we’ll think about uh doing a little jump. Um do i not have the whole thing turned on. I don’t know. If i do, i think i turned it. I i turned it off instead of on all right now it’s on, so i hope you guys are. Oh, the dogs are looking at it. They don’t know what to think all right so now it’s way over there, because i told you i don’t, really know what i’m doing. Oh, i just scared the crap out of some bird it’s, pretty cool. I mean the thing. The thing will will hit a pretty hard skid do some donuts and then let’s see if i got it stuck in the leaves or i’m gon na try to reverse it out. It’S fast man, it’s fast it’s, a it’s, a cool little car and, like i said i need to learn it.
I just i just hit some bricks. I don’t know i don’t know if you guys are catching it all. So what we’re gon na do is we’re gon na have to um we’re gon na let’s, put it on the grass first and then what we’ll do is we’ll uh i’m hitting the gas on accident, so we’ll hit the grass that way. I have more space to run it in and hopefully you guys can catch it let’s see here. Oh, i flipped it over all right, so i put a little piece of luan out there and uh with a basketball under it uh. Oh i suck at this let’s. Try that again, i’ll go a little slower until i get to the actual jump. Oh, i got a stick stuck inside all right now. Let’S try it’s cold out here, it’s cold out here. What i do for you guys all right, so let me try and bring it back around. You should see those headlights coming through. Of course, i have the the steering backwards now, it’s, not this slow, i’m, actually, just driving it slow all right. We know what we need to do. I got something cool. I just did some slow motion jumps and uh i’m gon na have to put that in but i’m gon na show you i raised it first, i was doing some jumps off of basketball. I, like my boots, so then i started jumping off this. I raised it.
I’M gon na go first fast motion then i’ll show you then i’ll show you how it looks in slow motion. Apparently it pops good wheelies too, all right, so you guys get the gist of it. This thing’s really cool it’s, fast it’s, fun, it’s uh. I wish it was nicer out because i’d spend a little bit more time out here. The dog look at bigsby sitting up on the porch just staring: he doesn’t know what to make of it: roscoe doesn’t care, but uh. This thing this thing is pretty cool. I wonder if i can get to do a a ride, a wheelie again let’s see. Am i even in there there we go all right, let me get it to try man, i don’t know how i did it. I don’t know how i did it guys. I was, i just started it up and then i hit the gas real hard and it just did this huge, wheelie and rode it. So i don’t know if it depends on where in the grass you’re on boom, but hey so far, so good. Let me turn this thing off turn this thing off: um the wl toys uh bunch of numbers, whatever i told you before, that it is ends in a two seven um, two four, two, two seven or so i don’t know what the hell is, but it’s got Really cool squishy rubber tires, it’s got lights on it, which is really cool.
It’S got a little dude in it. It makes it a little better, um. So far, uh just being out here two days now and running this thing, i have to say that it’s fun, it’s it’s kind of cool. If you got a kid um who’s looking to do some rcing, i think, as far as rc cars go and when you’re talking about the really good, durable ones that have speed, i’ve, seen a video on this, where a guy literally did a um, i mean just Beat the snot out of it beat the snot out of it and the thing this guy from england. It was awesome video, but he hammered on this thing. He showed all the little parts of what it’s good, for he did things that i mean blew me away and this little guy right here was just awesome. It was just awesome, it was nasty, um, really good. You could see the uh the articulation all right. So i mean anybody who does any rock climbing or anything like that you’re gon na know what that looks. Like i mean the the suspension on this thing is, is really cool, it’s squishy, but not too squishy to where, if i drop it it’s staying right there, you know what i mean it’s, not so squishy that if i drop it, it’s bouncing two feet right and Uh you’ve seen what it did on the little jumps uh, those are actually uh. Those are actually fun.
I i’m gon na have to set up some some jumps and and teach myself how to use this thing, because now that i’m doing it, i, like it it’s pretty cool these shocks, are um adjustable. You can see right here, uh in the rear, which i think is a pretty cool deal nothing’s broken on it. You do have a metal skid plate and i was jumping a curb last night and you can see the scratches that skid plate works. I mean i was hitting it hard on this on this cement curb and uh everything is staying together on your drive. Shaft, you have metal ends with a plastic in the middle um, and then again you have this. These plasticky, they they move like rubber, but they’re plastic um. All these stabilizer bars and the stabilizer bars are really good. I mean this thing is so flexible that’s? What keeps it from breaking um the spare is an actual spare that’s got the nut on it. So if i needed to change a tire, i don’t see why i would um it has a spare. It has a real spare uh, i think that’s pretty pretty wild too. So all in all this thing, it’s an attractive little buggy and uh. It works good it’s got all the little stickers on the inside to make it look like it’s supposed to look um everything about. It is what you would want in an rc again: it’s 112 in the size, so um i don’t know i wouldn’t go any smaller than this.
If i was going to buy my own, i wouldn’t go smaller than 112. 112 is a really good size, uh. Obviously, the more you go: 110 1816, the bigger they get um and then so you get one and that’s a regular car. This is you know what i mean a little, a regular little buggy, so very, very cool, very, very cool i’m. Actually, um i’m. Actually, digging it and i’m kind of i’m actually really happy with this thing, because it just gives me that extra little thing to do and have fun with and find some way to break stuff or ruin. Something and anytime. I can get out and break something or ruin something by doing something i’m not supposed to be doing. I am all about that. So that’s it a little fun time and you know it’s like adult toys, and i said if you got a kid it’s good, it’s good for a kid, but um. Remember that they’re they’re hard to control. If you know, if you know, if you’re not really using them, that often um, you know it’s it it’s fast it’s fast, when you’re steering this little tiny, exterior you’re trying to get it to go the right way. Um, you have to understand what direction moves when you’re traveling when you’re looking at something coming at you how to steer away for little little kids, i wouldn’t suggest it. I think the box has like 14 and up and i think that’s a pretty accurate.
A little kid can use it and have fun, but they’re gon na be all over the place and it’s gon na be a lot of chasing um. But for an adult who wants to just have fun or if you have. You know an older kid and you want something to do where you could do something in common and have fun with. This would be a really cool thing for that um. All in all my first review and 2021 well, it happens to be an rc car and not a knife. How confusing is that it’s pretty confusing to me so what we’ll do is we’ll reach into my pocket and crkt batum, oh that’s what’s in my pocket today. So hey scab what’s in your pocket today, so there we go. We got a knife in first review, fenit i’m gon na go in and i’ll probably even recharge. This battery. I have another one ready to go all in all uh i’m, really glad this was sent to me a fun little experiment and uh turning you guys, all over the place and i’m pretty sure i’m gon na have a lot more fun with it. Uh. Who knows? Maybe i’ll get my girl in rc eventually, and we can uh go out and destroy things. She’Ll have fun running things over and breaking stuff. Look at mr guilty over there hey where you supposed to be hey, get over here so that’s. It look at scared.
Guy. Over here he’s petrified this little car. He has no idea what to do all right, that’s it for today it’s official 2021 in the books. First review of something and now my ice cold hands are going to go in and maybe make a steak. Oh yeah, i’m.
