    Finally it arrived !!!

    What an illusion to see the box:

    And I start to take out, first a pair of jellies for the V8, some pulleys and the ignition, they did not have more sweets in stock ...

    Nothing else open, a little screw to the ground, we'll see if it is missing somewhere or it comes from more:

    Wet does not come hehe :

    The bags with details and paraphernalia vary :

    Another bag with wall and battery charger NIMH:

    And the transmiter , which comes prepared with the third channel for winch:

    I take it out of the box, well protected comes for the compact that is the box and what it includes. First impression, and although I had seen the body live more times, not so the v8 and the r4, but more beautiful live than in the truth photo, used to buy cars, the truth that has surprised me pleasantly:

    The wheels, precious the truth, the screws and elacabado with the front locks:

    And the backs the different cap:

    And what I most expected to see, the V8 with the R4 and the double front shock absorber, quality finishes and detail, impressed me I'm really jejeje, win live:

    For the time being it's everything, it's a workshop, first to change the yota1 for some yota2 with ballistic caps and change wheels hehehe, then more things that I'll tell you.

    There were two screws, they were from the inner ring of one of the rims, it is complete and perfect

    Test the wheels:

    And after assembling everything, without instructions of anything, following the photos of the web of rc4wd, when mounting the body, the wall in front of the dashboard makes butt with the distributor and can not be mounted without cutting the body

    Good morning for saying something .....

    Yesterday, after two years, and as I am adding in the thread, I continue with the Blazer putting it aimed. Yesterday I had to improve the body anchoring system, but I was surprised and of course for bad as expected with this brand ....

    First came the broken body, they sent a second body, but this second has one of the anchors to the body with the biggest hole due to which you can't use that hole.

    Conclusions on the rc4wd brand: poor quality of finishes, but very very bad. Half products come from China with the corresponding quality and without revision. In their day with the axes, they came without adjusting and nobody said anything, everyone broke, until after complaints and complaints they took out a set of adjustment washers. People have seen how their tires are worth nothing more than their tires or if they are not problems (something they like seems to be). Then with a Beast2 6x6, there were missing screws, past threads etc. Now with the Blazer, more than 900e of model to bring loose or missing screws, the broken body and then car finishes of € 150, the tranny comes dirty as if it was already used, the body with a larger hole of the account which denotes the capacity of the brand quality section .... are things that you do not expect from one of the first brands in the hobby market, anything injora brings better quality than things of this brand.
    Advice if you buy anything of this brand, check it millimeter by millimeter and you will avoid problems, although it is better not to have problems or garbage of products at home to avoid buying rc4wd cars, any other brand makes a thousand laps in quality and functioning.

    Things are still coming, and more that will come, after a fight via mail with the RC4WD after-sales service, in the end they make me an account on their website for future orders in their online store, just as I said The bad, I say the good, excellent after-sales service the truth, at the moment, with more fight or less, every problem has done something to solve it, so I can be happy that almost 2 years later, they have had a commercial attention and it is Very much appreciated.


    Some gummies that will be for another but they arrived:

    And the rear leaf brackets, to prevent it from snagging:

    More work, I changed the electronics, a servo from 38kg to 6v with the hobbywing 1080 ESC. Motor I have left the same to see that. I have put more elegant covers to the cables in the part that is seen under the hood. With this configuration everything has entered the aluminum tank and I have been able to remove the tray from the middle.
