I’Ve got another model for the collection, a cheapy cheapy model and a rear wheel drive drifting model. Hopefully this is the wpl rc. The d12 rear wheel drive truck that everyone sort of modifying into a little rear wheel, drive drifter for a bit of foot on the track. Uh big shout out guys to driftmanji uh. I bought this from them. Got the guys ebay go check them out. The description to their ebay store will be below they’re. Also on facebook, go check them out. They’Ve got loads of drift stuff on there uh worth checking out guys. This thing was purchased for under 50 pound posted i’m. Looking forward to seeing what’s inside the box, i think he’s got lights, uh, let’s unbox, this thing, let’s have a look Music, some tabs. I say: tabs it’s, like sticky tape, really there’s three on it. I think yeah three lots ain’t no homework on this truck, guys literally you’re, seeing it as i do no it’s bigger than i thought you know, look at that wow, okay, so we’ve got another little cheapy, cheap remote by the october, but nonetheless this thing comes actually Got a nice little feel to it uh just a little pistol grip around. I say nothing special! I don’t expect this thing to do a lot of drifting without loads of modification, but i’ll tell you what i’m gon na do once i’ve unboxed it a little bit more. Oh, yes, wow it’s, really really lightweight guys, no way.
That is crazy! Look at that wow! Oh, what i’m gon na do is slam some batteries in this and check it out. So we’ve got some batteries in the remote two aa batteries need a little phillips head screwdriver to knock that little uh screw at the bottom drop two batteries in there and your remote should turn on like so so not many settings on there and then no word Of a light off camera, just i was looking at this little model for five minutes, wondering where i ain’t watching our videos on this. I was wondering where the battery goes check this out guys they call this on the back here. You you move the spare tire down like so, and it opens up a hatch and in there is a little 7.4 volt leon battery. How awesome is that connect these up and put it on the bench? Oh man, five millimeters, looking for that right. So, first of all, what else do you get with this? You get a little baggy uh. In there back, there, you’ve got like a little uh black window surround you’ve got a usb battery charger for your main battery in the car, looks like some sort of mock drop down battery and as well as that, you’ve got a sticker kit, because this thing’s got Lights: uh, that’s, fine, we don’t need to turn it on let’s, say so: that’s what’s in there look how cool that looks already i’ll tell you more about it in a bit, but what up like literally in there as well, so i forgot to mention there is Um mirrors as well i’m not going to drift mine straight away.
What i’m going to do with mine is purely cosmetic. I’Ve got a 3d printer. Luckily, for me, and everything that is available on thingiverse for this you’ve got big body. Kit drop down. Bumpers you’ve got the sides for it as well with the flared arches you’ve got all the uh, the big wing on the back, and things like that. So what i’m going to do is make it look like a mean drift machine um, but that that’s on the next videos really guys. This is just a quick unboxing. So let’s turn this thing on, so you got um um. Actually, now let’s talk about a little bit more on the back here. You’Ve got some leaf spring suspension that feel they feel quite nice and blush actually let’s say underneath there like, underneath that spare we all like to say is your battery access. When you turn it uh clockwise and you can open the battery off anti clockwise locks it again. These wheels look nice as well. I’Ll tell you what they’ve got some nice little grippy rubber on them? Uh they don’t they don’t press at all, because them solid they’ve got some solid plastic room inside there. Look at that that’s strange in it rolling the front wheels because they’re not connected to anything um independent suspension on the front that feels quite stiff to be honest with you, but uh. What i might do is i’ve noticed there’s a spring. I think you can probably address that spring a little bit, if i’m being honest, so these wheels sit in the arches a little bit from from day one.
Basically, these things amazing, let’s fire, it off let’s, say got the remote on on the remote you’ve got a little adjustment. I think it’s, just literally your steering rate that’s all you’ve got on there. It says t right i’m, not sure what that is throttle rate. Ah, what you do is you hold the button button down and you adjust the throttle rate. You hold the button down for the steering and you adjust to steer right here about there um turn the car on button. At the front there little switch little switch press. The switch on – oh, oh, oh, look at that! Wow again. What i’m going to do is hold off on my stickers, because you got little light stickers as well. Let’S have a look at this let’s press forward border reverse, oh it’s, proportional as well. Quite a aesthetic that’s, quite a nice little, not a response. I’M. Not gon na lie i’d, always recommend as well guys charging your batteries fully before using it i’m, not charging at the minute. Just for the purpose of the video and the steering as well it’s nice and sensitive off this little remote can’t believe that look at this it’s, not just all or nothing, it’s, actually fully. Proportioned let’s drop this on the bench. Oh wow, i like it as it is that is going to be good and there’s a that’s going to work there’s a little drift truck. You know it really is.
Hopefully the drive crank can take it i’m going to put uh when the time comes. Uh upgrade the motor and the speed control in this, and the radio, of course um, but hopefully get this thing. Sideways, let’s, say, rear wheel drive. Look at that bingo i’m really impressed guys the detail on it is fantastic. I say i should really clip all them frames on that for you, but i’m, not gon na today, literally because i’m gon na finish, this video today go straight over the other side of the room to the 3d printer and start printing off some goodies for this Let’S say i want to get the side pieces again. I’Ve not overly looked into this, but i just know i wanted one on the shelf, because i wouldn’t look at that for under 50 pound. They also available in silver. I think that is the only other, color silver and white. Let me just double check the back of the box for you, if it’s on the back, that is yeah, silver or white, so as pictured on that box in silver, quite like it in silver actually, but for me i’m going to be spraying, it all a totally Different colour anyway um some sort of metallic purple, or something like that, but yeah i’m really impressed with that. What i’m going to do is, i think, i’m, going to charge the battery and visit around the floor for a bit first before i drop any wheels on it.
I think, as well looking on thingiverse there’s going to be some modifications needed to drop some actual drift. Rims onto these because, as you can see, they’re screwed on i’m not sure what hexes or anything is behind there. Uh you’ve got underneath you’ve got a little ladder frame. Your gearbox some kind of servo in there again i’m, not sure the size of that, and then you got a driveshaft through the center. The back sticks as well: there’s, no differential in there at all the the diff’s locked, uh, that’s, all plastic. On the back end. Minus the springs, it’s a great little thing. Why wouldn’t? You want one of these on your shelf, so i was waffling on a little bit there, but you guys just want to see this up close and personal because hey this is an unboxing. If you leave the remote off as well you’d like to actually flash on the front, there turn your remote on and they actually work the stay on. Sorry not work, but you know you know what i mean. Look at the detail on this thing. It’S, absolutely incredible. This is going to make a really nice little project inside as well. We’Ve got seats, a little gear, stick or a hand, brake steering wheel dashboard. This thing’s got potential. It really has to be a nice little scale. Drifter. Look at that again. You could put lights in there lights in the dash. I thought there was lights on the bottom based on that picture there, but there’s.
Not. There is only these two lights: there’s, not brake lights, either or indicators on the back. You could easily fit the kit guys. The kit is really really cheap again also available on ebay uh. I just like the detail, let’s say you could you could also turn this into a material top truck if you wanted and put a material top over it but i’m, not literally i’m gon na slam? This thing put it on big, big dirty fat: wheels, they’re just about to stick out the arches, let’s, say flare, the arches hopefully get the flare arch kit on there, the side kit and then the big bad boy. Bumper. That drops all the way down again. That is available, ready to 3d print right now and download um. So so the next video of this you will see is gon na have a bunch of 3d printed things on the desk right there and then we’re going to try and i don’t even know the fit on guys, whether you screw them on or glue them on. Um look i’m getting sidetracked, again tiny. What i’m gon na do to it, instead of showing you around it, but there in a fat lot more to show you about this truck. So there you go, then guys just a quick look around the wpl rcd12 truck i’m. Actually dead impressed with it, like i say, even if you just wanted to use it as it is at the box, that’s going to be a ton of fun blasting around the room sticks off in the back, get a little loader, and things like that.
If you wanted to or just turn it into a bit of a scale truck, what would be interesting as well is. I know that this is a one tenth scale. It says on the box, but i know that this would fit like a 1 10 112 scale. Crawler, so you could even take this body off this body’s got to be worth the money alone, just to take this body off and drop it on some sort of a crawler chassis. Uh i’ve not got anything small enough to really show you behind me on it. No, but guys yet loads of potential guys for modification and messing around with or just stick up sticky battery and you charge it and have a mess around and play with it. But this one is going to look like an absolute star on the shelf and then we’ll try and get this thing drifting as well as looking like a drifter anyway guys, if you like the video, please give it a thumbs up hit that subscribe button. For me, every little helps and i’ll see on the next one a little bit of bonus footage of this thing actually running. It is a lot of fun. The steering on it is already absolutely fantastic. Watch this for a steering circle. Music! Look at that that’s gon na be great with some driftwood drift rims on Music. Oh, we got a little bit of a spinny out of me. I know what i’m gon na do.
I know what i’m gon na do. Let me just put a bit of masking tape on them back wheels and see what happens, but i know this is a real crude way of doing things. Just a bit of masking tape on them back back wheels only check this out, you’re ready that is gon na work. You know, no wonder people are modding them to drift.
