"Purchased the Typhon 6s after buying the Kraton 6s. Man the Typhon is a blast to drive. Hugs the road well on any surfaces so far. 10 packs through the car so far and no issues. Diffs were shimmed correctly out of the box, however the fluid in the front and rear was a bit low. Very happy with the purchased, super fast shipping from AMain to boot!" - Alex - Verified Owner

Performance Built Chassis

An Updated, chassis features a wider rear section with 3D formed areas leading to extreme rigidity and strength. Easy Access components such as differentials and electronics make tuning and maintenance a breeze. Furthermore, the suspension geometry has been given a refresh and makes for less exposed shock towers protecting the shocks from bending. These come together to give you a chassis focused on performance and durability!

Both 6S capable, the ESC features adjustable settings to allow for different punch, brake, reverse speed, motor timing, and more. When using a 6S LiPo battery and the included optional "Speed Pinion", you can expect to see speeds in excess of 60mph! This truck is ready to meet your need, your need for speed.

Arrma Typhon 6S BLX Brushless RTR 1/8 4WD Buggy (Red/Black) (V5)
This is my second Arrma. I have a V2 Infraction and wanted something that I could take anywhere. Wow!!! This thing is awesome!!! I'm so glad I didn't get a Mojave. The Typhon is fast, nimble and is a flier. If you can swing the $500. go for it. My wife literally called it a "giggle machine".
Edit: This is a year and a half later. A month ago my ESC died. Horizon hobby sent out a new one right away. My experience with HH support has been outstanding. 2 year warranty. Can not be beat!

This is the best Rc car for dollar.

It can do anything jump, race, on road, off road it a beast on 4s and 6s.

Its not too big to throw in your car and the weight of it keeps it super stable at speed.

I love it and will get another one. It's my favorite rc other then my 4tec and Fazer mk2.

You Don't need any upgrades it's great of the box. I did get the front bumper, rear skid and the front cv's for added protection and smoother steering.

Its the best!

After a bunch of research, I purchased this awesome car. It’s my first Arrma purchase and I’m 100% satisfied and gratified. The Typhon has seen pavement, dirt, synthetic turf and snow. I have only been running Spektrum 4S 50C batteries and this car is a beast. I can only imagine what it can do with a 6S. My Typhon has had plenty of spills and has yet to receive anything worse than a few scratches. I can’t wait to beef it up and do some serious bashing.

Love the Updates! The new electronics from spectrum are a big improvement over the old units, and they were great. And they fixed the low-end cogging that some of the older blx models had. The model hits the claimed speeds with ease (unlike some models where you can push and get 'close'). Plus, even on the 20T pinion, still runs cool after multiple speed passes. A solid buggy with quality that far exceeds it's price!
-one note, the body is still drilled for the pass-through antenna even though the antenna has been moved to the inside not requiring the hole.

Arrma Typhon 6S BLX Brushless RTR 1/8 4WD Buggy (Red/Black) (V5)
I didn't purchase this through Amain but have owned the buggy for close to 2 years. This thing is a beast on 6s. I primarily run it in the yard and it tears up the grass. I put Proline Dumont paddle tires on it last winter and it throws a nasty rooster tail of snow. I've also used the Limitless Hoon tires on it for speed runs. It's a versatile buggy and it's durable. The only thing that broke (really it's cracked but still hanging on) is the rear wing from flipping over. Another plus is the buggy is easy to work on and service the differentials. I put thicker fluids in all three diff cases to power through grass and speed runs. My only suggestion is if you're running it in a yard hard, monitor the temperature and if your motor temperature gets over 150 degrees, it wouldn't be a bad idea of buying a fan for the motor.

If your on the fence about getting this RTR 4WD Buggy - use this review and GET IT! I researched the BLX V5 version of this buggy and after owning one now for weeks and running it tons of times its been GREAT! Its all that and a bag of chips as they say! Arrma did a great job with this buggy!
