This is another high-quality China RC short course truck for the RC hobbyists with a limited budget. Its name is HuanQi 727, a clone of the Traxxas Slash 4×4.
You can only get an RTR for this RC car. Also, remember that different sellers have included different items in their package; you can order either brushless or brushed version. In the one I received, I found out that, out of the box, it came with a 2s LIPO and a brushless system (Motor 3650, ESC 50A). The ESC and servo are waterproof, so your RC car run over water and under the rain. I ordered mine from taobao.com. It is a Chinese online shopping site.
However, this truck can also handle as powerful as a 3s LIPO battery if you choose the one with a brushless motor 3660 (3800KV) and an ESC 120A. The excitement this powerful RC car brings to you is unforgettable.
Don’t worry about its ability to withstand the abuse as the producer of this RC buggy uses imported materials to make its chassis.
For high-speed seekers
It is a capable clone of Traxxas Slash (Traxxas Slash is priced at around $400)
You might ask why this particular producer design their own car?
While using other company’s product ideas certainly is wrong, but we cannot overlook the quality of this product. It is a civilian version of a Traxxas Slash. For about half of the price of a Traxxas Slash 4×4, HQ 727 is a wonderful RC car you will love it once you drive it. It can really run steadily due to its size. It is very important for a high-speed basher.
The price for this RC short course truck is around $200 on eBay. (Recently, this RC car with a brushless system is not easy to get)
In fact, on YouTube, you can find many videos in which people race HQ 727 with the Traxxas Slash. Seeing is believing; with some upgrades, this car can handle the same abuse on the race track and there is almost nothing broken after the racing.
To ensure that result, the producer is actually using the same durable high-performance engineering plastic materials commonly used for making modern racing RC cars. In fact, even when the time comes we need to upgrade or replace broken parts, its replacement and option parts are very cheap as they are made in China. As a result, playing this RC short course truck is worry-free, and can save money in your pocket.
Here are some of the options parts in the market. You can find them on eBay.com, Gearbest.com, and Aliexpress.com
Recently, I can only find this short course truck with a brushed system.
However, many parts are available.
As I mentioned that it is running on a brushless system. As the producer clearly states that its car can run on a brushless system, it shows that the producer believes that its car is a quality product; it is strong enough to withstand the violence in the wild.
