HSP Flying Fish on road RC car. Must do upgrades to drive straight & fast.

This 1/10 bulk kit was a journey to make it drive good. Sold as a Drift car….now I know why. It drifts all over the road while I was trying to go fast.

The aluminum chassis was drilled wrong causing the rear diff and suspension to sit crooked in the back.

Shocks were short and chassis would slap the road on every crack or bump.

Wheel stub shaft was not machined down to fit its own wheel bearings.

Blew the motor mount bearing in 2 runs because Spur gear was at an angle to the motor.

The lower control arms are too soft. They flex too much and keep changing the Caster as they twist.

The good thing with HSP is their parts are sold everywhere and easy to get.

I just recommend buying a built car. The kit doesn’t include all the grub screws or axle pins or E clips. Need to buy the 1/10 hardware assortment. I even was digging through my 1/8 assortment for 2 grub screws.

Rally car tires with grip help out a lot too. The included street tires would slide all around.

Now the car is fine after the upgrades

Thanks for watching. Please Sub for more videos on affordable RC fun.
