The Arrma Typhon 6S BLX Brushless RTR 1/8 4WD Buggy is equipped to reach speeds of 70+ mph right out of the box! Designed fast, designed tough, and outfitted with the 2.4GHz Spektrum STX2 radio system, it's all set for fast action on all terrain, in all conditions!

To give intermediate-level bashers such incredible speed, ARRMA equips this new TYPHON speed buggy with powerful, 6S-capable brushless electronics. Its 2050Kv brushless motor is paired with the BLX185 ESC, featuring IC5 connectors and compatible with standard EC5 connectors. The waterproof electronics ably support all-weather bashing. Add your favorite 4S or 6S LiPo battery and watch this buggy smash your bashing speed expectations, especially while running with the optional recommended pinion gear.

New, low-drag buggy wheels arrive outfitted with super-aggressive, multi-surface DBoots KATAR B tires. A low-drag wing helps keep the vehicle grounded. Both contribute to confident control and responsive handling at thrilling high speeds.

The TYPHON 6S BLX 4WD speed buggy blasts over dirt, asphalt, grass - all terrain and all conditions - with adjustable oil-filled shocks soaking up the bumps. The shocks are mounted on black-anodized aluminum towers and include aluminum shock caps and protectors to maintain their super-smooth damping.

For the durability needed to support such intense brushless performance, ARRMA uses a strong anodized aluminum chassis as its foundation. Front and rear composite chassis braces and composite chassis side pods lend more strength. All-metal diff outdrives and gearbox internals plus durable steel driveshafts all contribute to a reliable, heavy-duty drivetrain that holds up to extreme bashing. A "never loose" aluminum steering servo saver and "never pop" ball ends supply more precision, reliability and confidence.

ARRMA holds your maintenance downtime to the minimum with an efficient, driver-friendly design. A sliding mount gives you quick, hassle-free access to the motor. The center diff is easy to reach and can be removed by taking out just four bolts. Topping it all off is a sleek buggy body with streamlined good looks, featuring a matte paint scheme in black and red with forged composite detail.

The ready-to-run TYPHON 6S BLX 4WD includes the new Spektrum 2.4GHz STX2 transmitter and comes with its SRX200 receiver and ADS-15M metal-geared servo already factory-installed. The only required items are a 4S or 6S LiPo battery, compatible charger, safe charging bag, and four AA transmitter batteries.

Arrma Typhon 6S BLX Brushless RTR 1/8 4WD Buggy (Red/Black) (2019 V4)
I have been a nitro guy for many years. With the exception of a few RC boats, this is my first time dabbling with electric. Personally, I like the challenge of tuning nitro engines, not to mention the sound of the exhaust.
With that said.... let me talk about the Typhon. I think its a well made car. I ran it a few times so far, it runs well, handles well, so far, no maintenance at all. In my opinion, the down side is the run time of lipos. I tend to run pretty hard, mostly running full throttle. Regardless of what type of battery configuration I have run, I only get 10-12 minutes of run time. You need a wheelbarrow full of lipos to run for any length of time.
I have not attempted to run on pavement as of yet. I ran it as it came right out of the box. Here are the speed numbers I got from different battery configurations.
Single 3s SMC 5200 MAH ---- 24.5 mph---- like watching paint dry
Dual 2s ProMatch Racing 7200 MAH, running on 4S ---33.0 mph--- like watching baseball on TV
Dual 3s Revos 5000 MAH, running 6s----49.9 mph----not overly impressive
I have only run the car on baseball fields. The grass was a bit tall. Maybe 4" or so. The infields are smooth dirt, but not big enough to let it run for any length of time. I am sure the grass has slowed it down somewhat. My next test run will be with the on road pinion that is supplied in the box and run it on pavement. Will it get close to the 70 mph speed Arrma claims????

****UPDATE****
I installed the optional pinion gear that was supplied in the box. I ran it at a huge open concrete parking lot. I have to say, it is powerful. While I was getting accustomed to running it on concrete, on my 3rd pass, the right rear tire blew apart. GPS speed was 62 mph. I think there is more in it, as I didn't get the chance to hold the throttle open before the tire blew apart. So, the moral of this story is..... despite there being no mention in the instruction manual about running the tires supplied with the car on concrete, I don't think its a good idea. Arrma should recommend swapping the tires to on roads before you wreck the car with a blown tire.

Arrma Typhon 6S BLX Brushless RTR 1/8 4WD Buggy (Red/Black) (2019 V4)
This is a GREAT basher! Super durable and STUPID FAST on a 6S battery. Honestly it flies on a 4S. I run mine a lot if the time in my back yard through grass using a 4S battery and it literally tears it up for about 20 minutes. Seriously, it's a tough buggy and a lot of fun.
