I got about five of the cars now uh from the xk lineup that we got in these are ready to run. They run anywhere from like 70 to 100, something dollars everything included, but i’m telling you we have had alex, and i so much fun. You can see some of the footage we built a ramp um to really send them. I want to learn how to uh reposition my car when it’s in mid air to try my best to land on the wheels which doesn’t always happen. Um and just learn more about surface as we advance uh to bigger stuff, because we got a lot of cars. Uh on the website, already in all different price ranges from different manufacturers and uh we’re gon na have a lot more coming, so it’s on me to start getting into the driving. So, as far as what you see, everything you see in front of, you is what you’re gon na get uh in one of these packages. Now the brave itself will show you. We have three different uh color options on this one. This uh is the red version. We have a black and a blue version, um all the same vehicle, just different um, you know different covers on top again it’s a super fun model for anyone looking to get into rc cars, like even me, i’m a beginner in this. This was perfect for me. It’S got a lot of speed and a lot of torque.
We could show you some footage now: um we’re, just driving out like most guys, are gon na do with these you’re, probably gon na drive them in your front yard and on the street in front of you and that’s. What we did. We just took it out right in front of uh. You know right in front of the studio we’re just driving around and man she can whip around she’s got torque. She can, if you use, if you goose it too much, you can almost flip over from a dead start, but she will uh wheelie. If you will and go she’ll do some drifting. I was having a lot of fun with that. Trying to figure out how to do reverse drift to forward was a lot of fun um, and i could see having a bunch of these setting up some cones with some friends or with your kids and your family. You can really have a great great time, then also when you get to jumping. I was impressed with how durable she was because majority of the parts on this one are all plastic, so i wasn’t sure you know. Obviously in my rookiness of driving uh, hitting a jump and trying to adjust. You know that’s a matter of hitting the throttle either and forward or reverse you can backflip a front flip. You know to get the car to land. I was afraid that i was gon na and i did numerous times not land well and i wasn’t sure how long she was gon na last.
But we did a bunch of jumps and she she took them really really well, as you can see, it’s it’s, a beautiful, beautiful car i’m excited to play with more of them, but um as far as the truck and bashing she’s really really awesome, but now let’s Uh, while i have it here, let’s just go through so again in the box. You’Re gon na get the box like this she’s gon na be just be the car. The transmitter is all gon na be inside, but the car is just uh zip tied in. So you basically just cut out the zip ties and she’s already built up, so she will come out like this, but now you can see she is beat up a little bit on mine but you’re going to get a manual. And now what i like about the manual for these kind of cars uh, or at least they’re, very detailed – they give you nice exploded views. So one thing about rc cars for you beginners out there and one thing i know just from being around it. You know cars take maintenance, you’re going to want to maintain them to keep them going and the beauty is in motion rc. We have a and a bevy of spare parts available for these cars um, which is great and we’re gon na keep them in stock uh. All the time which is awesome, but you can see the exploded, views that’s gon na really help you um, when you’re looking to figure out how to fix things.
You know if you just need a spring on your uh on your shock. Things like that, when you see the exploded view, it helps to uh put things back together. If you will – and the manual you know, does a good job for that. You do get a charger. It is just a 5 volt, 2 amp up to 2 amp charger. You can plug it into your laptop plug it into you know the same way. You charge your cell phone. You get a little uh lug nut, so that’s going to help you take off your tires. If you eventually need to replace, because you’ll wear out the treads, especially if you’re running them on concrete a lot, you obviously get the transmitter. The only thing you’re gon na have to supply is it takes four double a batteries inside so you’ll have to supply the double a batteries. But now i like the transmitter, uh it’s well it’s a large size, but what i do like that you do get steering, trim and you do get throttle trim. So those are really probably two of the most important things on a car. You want to make sure she drives straight by trimming it out in the searing, and you want to make sure you get the throttle to the right position where the second you goose, it uh she can go. But if you want to give it to a child – and you don’t want it to go so fast, you could trim the throttle down.
So when they jack the throttle, she won’t go so so hard, so that’s uh also a good way for a beginner to learn. So you’re, not you know, overdoing it at the start. Taking a look inside her body and again, i again i’m going to show you she could take it. She is beat up um, which is which is the way to go. I’Ve cracked, the top because i landed on the top a lot but um. Let me take off. You just got four body clips and then you can see inside you get great you’re gon na get access to everything. So the lipo battery comes with a dean’s connector and this is a 2s lipo and it just gets velcroed in so we get them plugged out here, and it is a 1 500 milliamp lipo. Now, when we were goosing it around i’m gon na say we got about 10 minutes um of driving time, and i was again i was going hard. You know pedal to the metal if you will uh the entire time. You do have a brushed motor in here, which is nice and again all seated. You got your servo easy access if you have to say replace this, but you can see all plastic on here, but the shocks are nice with ball links on the front, but majority of the internals are plastic so but everything looks to be easy access. You do have a switch. You could turn the car on.
You can see, you got your light turn it on and off. You could leave the battery plugged in which, which i like you don’t, have to try to get under there and plug the battery. In once. You have your once, you have your top on to get it started, or something like that uh, which is awesome, but overall, i’m really impressed with this, and what i really liked uh going back to some of the jumping footage was that you know this one. I wasn’t expecting it would to have the torque to be able to manipulate it in mid air um. But after you, after you drive it you’re going to be impressively uh for its size. You’Re going to be impressed with the speed that she offers and the punch, but when you’re in the air, if you goose the throttle she will, you know she will rotate uh in in either orientation uh, depending if you go reverse or forward really well. So a couple times i i was able to hit it right. I went up and then came down, landed right and got out of there, but for guys that are going to be just driving this around on your front lawn your backyard, you know taking it to a trail or you know just out in your front yard and Jump in the curb she’s going to be a lot of fun for you, so uh. Let me just plug it in real, quick.
Well, we got it here, so you will just press the button transmitter goes on and then you turn on and she’ll bind up there. You go so you got your left, you got right and then boost the throttle and she will go and i didn’t have my battery secure but that’s it or reverse, but she, as you can see, she has a lot of power which is really impressive. Again. It’S. Just a 2s lipo inside and if you have a dean’s connection, obviously you can charge the lipo quicker than with this. If you have an actual charger with you know a dean, a dean capable charge, but now i will say um just for the interest of fairness. I jumped this thing probably a hundred times, and eventually the first piece that i broke was the shock absorbing plate, so this plate back here i kept landing like this. Like this. Like this, i was landing landing on the upside down, so i have here it is so again we have spare parts, they all come. So i that was a quick replacement. I just did before making this video, but this had broke so the uh. So she was hanging down like that, but again a simple replacement. I think this part was a few dollars and she’s back up and going took me all of five minutes to unscrew it and get it back in. So that was just one of the issues. Obviously, again it’s a car, so if you’re doing the jumps we set up, we made a big ramp, as you can see, we’re jumping it probably a lot higher than most people are gon na.
If you’re gon na land her honor tires over time. You know things are going to wear and tear so with with rc cars uh. You definitely want to keep up on your maintenance check things before you go out there and you know be prepared for that. Most car guys are prepared for that and also be prepared for this channel to do more quick tips on some surface stuff. So i’m definitely going to make a video of how to how to replace that on an xk car, because that was really easy. But looking at it in here, nothing is too hard to get access to uh and take out take apart and put back together, it’s it’s a really well built uh truck and perfect for a beginner to get into uh, rc driving and having some fun so uh. I think that’s gon na do it for this video guys that is the first of the xk cars lineup. Next one we’re going to be doing is the across we’ve got a few of the other ones. The military truck too um we’re going to be doing a lot more so guys. If this is your first time joining motion rc because of a surface vehicle, then thank you for joining and uh hit that like and subscribe button, because we’re gon na have a lot more surface content coming in the future. We can’t wait and that’ll. Do it for us guys alex behind the camera james in front of it and we’ll see you next time.
