The Arrma Typhon 2S 4X4 V3 550 Mega RTR 4WD Buggy comes ready to bash out of the box. Precision aluminum, tough steel and composite materials come together for an easy-to-maintain, super-durable vehicle design whose high downforce wing and low center of gravity, with wide arms and narrow wheels and tires, improve handling over race tracks, trails, muddy courses, skate parks and more. This version features new equipment that further increases the original Speed Buggy’s already impressive performance and durability.

The TYPHON 4X4 MEGA RTR is DESIGNED FAST, DESIGNED TOUGH — built for exciting bashing speeds and extreme, all-terrain durability. Features that enhance its unstoppable performance include a stronger chassis and retained hinge pin plates; steering with more clearance for stones; a castellated slipper pad and sliding gear mesh; and rubber-shielded bearings throughout.

The Speed Buggy now also includes the Spektrum SLT3 transmitter and SLR300 receiver. The transmitter is ergonomically designed for long periods of fatigue-free bashing and has a foam wheel for precise fingertip control plus an improved hand grip and trigger feel. New bashers will be able to set throttle limits at 50% or 75% until they are 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.

It also has the ingenious modular design perfected by ARRMA engineers for easy component access and maintenance. The power module, with improved dirt management, consists of a MEGA 550 motor for rock-jumping speed, plus motor plate, slipper clutch assembly and gear cover. The power module can be detached from the chassis as a complete unit by removing just one screw. With the power module removed, the slipper clutch can be reached easily for adjustments by taking out three screws that attach the gear cover. The gear ratio can be finely tuned as the power module now uses a sliding motor mesh design.

A two-piece molding screwed to the Speed Buggy’s chassis serves as its electronics module, containing a waterproof receiver box, servo mount and ESC tray. The SLR300 receiver mounts inside the receiver box for protection from dirt and moisture. The ultra-compact ESC is screwed to the top of the module, allowing quick access to the on/off switch, while the servo mounts to the side. All three components can be removed together, quickly and easily.

The differential module houses each differential unit in an innovative yoke design. Only eight screws need to be removed to release the front and rear yokes. The power module can then be detached, allowing you to pivot the gearbox cases for differential access. The TYPHON 4X4 MEGA RTR comes brushless-ready with 37T 1.35mod diffs with silicone O-rings. The large gears can withstand huge torque, and internal metal gears have been chosen for reliability during extreme bashing.

Its full-time 4WD transmission uses strong front, rear, and centerline telescopic driveshafts that can’t be lost during heavy impacts, unlike dogbones. A simple, dependable, responsive steering assembly complements the ultra-reliable drive system and features a servo horn with built-in servo saver. The TYPHON 4X4 MEGA RTR includes the waterproof Spektrum SPMS650 digital servo for 20% more torque than the previous version’s ADS-5 servo.

The self-bleeding, oil-filled shocks, now with silicone O-rings, use a tried and tested, coil-over design for simple maintenance and amazing handling. Their innovative rod-end has a molded-in spring perch for extra toughness. High chassis sides and a close-fitting buggy body limit the amount of dirt and debris that can get into the chassis tub. Front and rear bumpers offer defense against impacts.

Tough, multi-spoke wheels with vented dBoots 2-HO tires give the 1/8 scale TYPHON 4X4 MEGA RTR Speed Buggy effective traction for bashing on almost any terrain. Multiple battery types can be used with the hook-and-loop mounting, from 6-cell NiMH packs to a 2S block pack. This version comes with a Dynamite 3300 mAh 8.4V 7-cell Speedpack 2 Hump NiMH battery that provides 35% more run time compared to the 2400mAh pack of its predecessor.

Arrma Typhon 4X4 V3 550 Mega RTR 4WD Buggy (Green)
The Arrma Mega Typhon is a great entry level 1/8 basher. The only issue I had was after about a 20 min run on 2S lipo it went into thermal shutdown. Temp gun showed 165 F on the motor. This was a flat smooth dirt road. Limited my other runs to 15 mins and motor was about 145 F and no issues. Haven’t tried the NiMH that came with it. It such and excellent handling platform I still gave it 4 stars. Going to try one or two teeth down on pinion.

Great RC car to start the hobby. Very easy to control, 3 different speed levels and good quality. One recommendation is Lipo battery for longer runs.

As of date this item hasn't been touched. Purchased as a Christmas Gift for my Son and he has no idea I have it. 5 stars because it gives him a Platform to work from and he wants to do the upgrades himself. I will update with his view and perspective once he runs his first packs through her. As the purchaser, im very satisfied with the vehicle. Ive seen great reviews and the possibilities are endless for this version. Im very happy at this moment! Thanks Amain!

A great starter r/c buggy. I have noticed that if you run it for a while it will shut down, I believe that it's a fail safe for when the battery and motar get to hot. Other then that it's a blast and would recommend to anyone who is looking into getting a starter buggy or even into r/c cars.

Recently got into RC and am learning more every day. Started out with two 1/16 models from another company. But to me, nothing screams out RC more than a buggy. On this, the price was right and it is Highly upgradable. This way I can work on it as time and money allow. Have already ordered a couple 2s packs to replace the stock NIMH. Will also upgRead more about review stating Babies first Arrmarade the main gearing to 32p. Later I'll upgrade to a matching ESC and motor to run 4s. All in good time. Until then, it's still fun to run around dirt lots and ball fields. The radio range is beyond my comfort zone so there is no problem there either. Glad I made the purchase and truly recommend picking up one if you are at all tempted. Even if you never upgrade anything, it's worth the investment.

First off, shout out to Amain for quick shipping. I can compare this to my Granite Mega, the Typhon runs stronger than the Granite, I dont know if it was a dud or because of the smaller tires on the Typhon. Im getting a little better run time on it than I ever got with the Granite. Overall im very pleased with the Typhon, would highly recommend.
