The Arrma Typhon "TLR Tuned" 1/8 4WD Roller Buggy has been loaded with many high-end parts to improve durability and handling. Featuring TLR tuned parts installed from the factory, this buggy is the perfect choice for bashers who are interested in off-road buggy racing. The roller chassis has been based off the Typhon 6S BLX to give a solid base to build on. TLR added aluminum upgrades to compliment the vehicle including an aluminum chassis plate, steering rack, adjustable upper and lower suspension hangers, shock bodies and front and rear shock towers. The drivetrain is made from heavy duty components to promote durability when bashing or racing. Race compound Exabyte tires have been installed for extreme grip. A tunable rear wing will help keep the buggy grounded and easily controlled at high speeds. All of these performance driven features are ready out of the box, just add your choice of electronics and blast off!

Arrma made this vehicle a roller so that you may choose the perfect electronics to suite your needs. The chassis is compatible with 4S to 6S electronics and requires a servo, transmitter/receiver, motor/ESC and battery/charger. For racing applications a 4S system would be best to keep it competitive and within standard 1/8 off-road racing rules. If speed and power are your game, a 6S system will give incredible performance and top-end.

Arrma Typhon "TLR Tuned" 1/8 4WD Buggy Roller (Pink/Purple)
I have only run three battery packs thru this on the track but it handled amazing. The turning and suspension were comparable to the two Tekno 1/8 buggies I have driven.. Absolutely love the car

Arrma Typhon "TLR Tuned" 1/8 4WD Buggy Roller (Pink/Purple)
This is a great option to start out with a very capable buggy at a very reasonable price. The 7075 components really do improve overall durability of this platform while also providing enhanced tuning options. Tires are OK - softer/better tread pattern, but still not as good as most other tire options (still a bit on the stiff side). Parts availability is fantastic thanks to the reuse/compatibility with the rest of the Arrma line-up.

Overall fit/finish is good. I was a little disappointed in the surface finish of some of the black 6061 pieces (chassis front brace, front spindle plates). I'm not sure if this is because the parts were e-coated and then painted with an intended texture or if the surface quality of the underlying part was not great. The car came with a decent coating of rust preventatives/oils, and at first the pieces looked OK, but as soon as the surfaces are wiped clean the non-7075 aluminum pieces have a rough surface texture. This is not a showstopper from a performance perspective, but does detract from the overall appearance.

Like all rollers/sliders, check all the screws and shimming. The left side chassis guard was loose on mine and one of the motor mount screws was loose inside the chassis (actually rolling around in the box). Again, none a big deal breakers but something to check.

This design is the same in many ways to the Durango DEX8 (minus the adjustable battery and motor positioning features). The tuning guidance in the manual is good, but I highly recommend searching for the Tuning tips/cards for the DEX8 as it does an even better job of explaining settings and general recommendations. If you struggle to keep the rear end planted, JQ Racing has a Youtube channel that talks about potential tuning that you can do to the car that will help make a pillow ball car handle more predictably.

A couple of improvements would be to include additional washers for the front camber, vinyl chassis film, a smaller wrench for the 3 mm locknuts, a 25T servo horn, and a pinion. The biggest of those would be the the 25T servo horn. Many people do not use Spektrum servos, so the lack of one here feels a bit like a cost cutting measure.

I'm new to the hobby and this was my first ever roller. Everything went smooth and I'm really loving it though I only use it on the street.
