The Arrma Kraton 6S BLX RTR 1/8 4WD Brushless Monster Truck V5 is driven by an updated, 6S-capable power system and supported by a strengthened chassis design. The Kraton 6S BLX 4WD Speed Monster Truck is ready out of the box to reach incredible speeds for thrilling, all-terrain bashing.

ARRMA engineers have outfitted the KRATON 6S BLX 4WD with a brushless power system that now features the Spektrum Firma 150A Smart ESC and Firma 2050Kv brushless motor. The combination delivers incredible torque, acceleration and speed. Heavy-duty aluminum and steel chassis and transmission components take it all in its stride. For improved steering, ARRMA also includes a steel gear Spektrum S652 Digital Servo which is 32% stronger and 5% faster than the previous version's ADS-15M servo. Add your favorite 4S or 6S LiPo battery and watch this monster truck smash your speed expectations — up to 60+ MPH in optimum conditions with a 6S LiPo battery and the included optional speed pinion gear.

The ready-to-run package now also includes a 3-channel Spektrum SLT3 radio and Spektrum SR315 dual protocol receiver. Perfect for long hours of fatigue-free bashing, the transmitter's ergonomic design features a foam steering wheel for precise fingertip control and an improved hand grip and trigger feel. If you're a new driver, you'll be able to set throttle limits at 50% or 75% until you're ready to use the full speed potential. The SLT3 is compatible with Tactic SLT receivers to run other RTR vehicles you may own, and includes a third channel to control optional features such as lights and winches on models that have them. Because the SR315 receiver can use SLT and DSMR protocols, you can easily upgrade to a Spektrum DSMR transmitter later — then, download the free Spektrum Dashboard app for your mobile device and take full advantage of the Smart telemetry capabilities already present in the Firma electronics. You'll be able to receive real-time updates of ESC temperature, receiver (BEC) voltage, drive pack voltage and motor RPM.

Baught from LHS. HobbyTown in NLR Arkansas is the best. Oh and the Kraton is great. I have its cousin the notorious 6s v4. The notorious needs a valium to settle it down as it likes to break dance whe the kraton stays planted a lil more with the longe chassis. Thank you Hobbytown for being there when I need an impulse buy. Maybe I need to have the notorious share before I come into your store. ????

First RC Car and I love it. It's fast, wide and low which keeps me from tipping over too often. I take pretty tight turns at speeds and just slip right through the corners like a greased biscuit on a hot pan! It was pretty intuitive to pick up right from the start and I have enjoyed the heck out of myself every time I have taken her out. 10/10 would order again!

This is my first rc product since I was a kid. Nice truck & really quick. It has taken me a few runs to get familiar with it. The only reason I give the Kraton a 4 star is because of the battery tray. Im running 2 3s lipo’s and it a little annoying fumbling around with the straps. But this is just my pet peave. Great truck all in all. Buying an infraction next. Thanks hobby town!!

Wow!!! This thing rock. I'm no expert in bashing but this feels solid. Strapped on a 6S and it wheelies. There's no taming this beast. More than I expected.

Arrma Kraton 6S BLX RTR 1/8 4WD Brushless Monster Truck (Red) (V5)
Very disappointed in this purchase. Didn’t last 15min on brand new lipo battery’s. The motor overheated and burnt up after only 15min run time. The radio is very laggy and doesn’t let you get very far away. For the price I was expecting a bad to the bone basher I can drive hard and beat up but wasn’t even able to drain my dual 3s lipos
