$30 RC Car that Doesn’t Suck? 1:18 and 4WD! (4K)

Something a little different from an audio guy? How about a super cheap RC truck? I picked up this $30 RC Rock Crawler from Amazon just for fun as the reviews were so good. I was thinking either a lot of people got a free truck for a positive review, or there must be something here. Check out the video to see what I think. Not to be confused with a REAL RC truck, this one is merely a toy, but WOW…$30 buys a lot of fun these days!!

Lmao i sell rc parts on ebay. Get a traxxas stampede brushless like $300 but you will not be dissapointed go about 50mph out the box

Sinister says:

But will it do rated?….

Ruby Rose says:

Car audio and RC cars, my two favorite things in one channel. Great content as always.

Dave F. says:

Nice rc check out a few of my rc on my old YT account they are fun

focused313 says:

4mph yikes. I guess that’s for a crawler though. I have a 75mph traxxas and I think that’s too slow. Good car for my son though.

Kelvin McGill says:

my traxxas slash would eat that baby up lol.. 3s lipo brushless

Kent says:

Not bad at all. I enjoy these occasional breaks from car audio you take to show us a neat toy you found.

Norb U says:

Time for microspeakers and microamps.

300 club says:

Lithium aa?

Turnip says:

Im an RC car lover, also a sound-car lover. Somehow this things are related, electronics!! Nice video.

Pied Piper says:

Man we like the same stuff. Coooool

Jon Doe says:

But what are the .5 ohm numbers? haha I love rc trucks.

anorris1212 says:

So, are you adding a mini sub amp and woofer to it?

Melissa Coleman says:

I just ordered the upgraded version. Can’t wait, it’s been years sense I had one. Thx Big D! U da man!

VdubSPAZ says:

The other one you should try out I don’t even know if they have it on Amazon but it’s red cat … It’s a very good crawler at usually blue black and white color… It has crab walk four-wheel steer individual steer and so on… My recommendations though if you’re going to get seriously into putting like big rock crawling borders and beating it up upgrade the servos to a metal gear style Redcat sells a metal gear style servo

CarpathianCarl says:

Back in the late 80’s, there was toy car made by HASBRO called “Record Breakers”. They were modular in design, allowing for upgraded motors, tires, etc. They used 2 AA batteries. I figured out that you could gently force a 9v battery into the AA slot, and it could touch the +/- contacts. The result? It’d scream. You might be able to find an old cell phone battery or similar (just probe it for continuity I guess) and I bet you can get thing to move faster, for cheap. Hell, might even be able to zip tie a cordless power drill battery to it. One of mine is 12v, and I’ve used it with spade lugs to move seats in cars w/o a car battery 😉 and many have a decent DC voltage number, that’s sometimes higher than rated.

mike waters says:

Nice, I’ll have to get one.. another great video.

Tom Musick says:

The problem with toy grade RCs is the lack of replacement/upgrade parts.

Cooley Numpsey says:

didn’t know that you was into RC cars

iamtimyeater says:

Man looks like fun thanks for the tip Big D

leo antecon says:

Where are the guts!?

Frietpan says:

this is a strange looking amp 😀 , now can you actually(rock) crawl with it super slowly?

VdubSPAZ says:

You need to hook up some little RC car with a separate battery pack a micro amp and some micro speakers… And then use Bluetooth to transmit the music….

Kyle says:

Big D make sure you turn the transmitter on before the car! Do a little youtube search on RC crawling its a pretty big hobby! enjoy!

SteadyMTB says:

Dyno it to clipping!

Odious Ktenology says:

Put some 14500 batteries in it!

4.2V per cell vs 1.5V for a AA 🙂

See if it will handle it or if it explodes in a fantastic way 🙂

adrammachado says:

Lets put a sound on it!

hunter callahan says:

I might have to get that for my kids

I love car audio almost as much as Rc trucks. I’m hoarding subwoofers and old school amplifiers. Hoarding rc’s too lol
