Arrma continues to have major QA issues with its 3s line.

After waiting a number of weeks until the back order went through, I get the car overseas, and a first round of wheel inspection and I find the hex hub on the right front wheel is cracked.

Try and replace it with extra 14mm hubs I had around, to find it doesn't fit, to find later on that the axle itself was damaged and chaffed, which caused the forced hex hub to crack in the first place.

Amain should be doing those quick QA checks before sending out product, especially overseas, cause now I'm stuck with a out-the-box broken RC, with no parts nearby to get the thing fixed.

I've had my fair share of disappointment with the Big Rock years ago, and if it weren't for the steep discount I would've never thought of getting another 3S Arrma product.

As always I say, save your money, and get yourself a 6S car from their line, cause those have plenty parts internationally, and the metal based drive terrain is more likely to be reliable right out the box.

Nice car especially for the price I paid in the special. However it came with issues. The slipper clutch was faulty and I've had to order a replacement part. Maybe due to high demand the parts were rushed and not inspected. Also the spring In the transmitter was loose and I.had to open it to reconnect it. Apart from that it is a must have car to any collection.

Received rc and put a 3s in to run it immediately out of the box. Slipper was set too loose out of the box and melted the spur gear. I called amain who was awesome with getting me fixed up through warranty. I only paid $200 for the car so I can't complain. However this car was originally $369. If I had paid $369 I would be highly disappointed. The slipper setup is a poor design and doesn't keep the driveshaft straight. The center driveshaft is plastic and the bearing holder is plastic. I feel for the original price they should be aluminum. The other highly disappointing thing is the front and rear diff gears are made of plastic. Kind of ridiculous. Other then these things I like the car but plan to spend money on upgrades fairly soon. I AM 100% HAPPY WITH AMAIN. They are great and I will continue to buy from them.

First I will state I got this for 199usd on sale and I'm not into speed runs because the roads where I live are terrible. The only other rcs I have are a V4 6s kraton, mini Zs, tt02s.

I compare this to my TT02 car that i put a 4070 motor into, handles so much better than that one for obvious reasons..I waited for the sale price cause I could not justify the price for where I live but oh my... so worth every penny so far.. I suggest upgrading the front springs or put a spacer in the shocks to avoid bottoming out on everything like small rocks though. With the tall gearing, easy to swap over and well explained with the instructions too, I reached a rough 82mph downhill :D well done arrma! It's tough as nails and I don't have any complaints other than I'll need new tires soon and it's only been a week! Ps a 5000mah 50c battery lasts about 15-20min hard driving for those curious !

Durability 4.4/5
Truthfull speed 5/5
Price 4.7/5
Tire shredder 3.8/5
Size 5/5
P-ps, get it if you want it, it's great

Arrma Vendetta 3S BLX Brushless 1/8 RTR Electric 4WD Speed Bash Racer (Green)
Picked this up during the Christmas in July Sale. Can't beat it at this price. You watch the top speed guys and this thing seems slow. Driveway in your neighborhood street and you will quickly realize it is anything but slow. But it is super stable and I had no issues blasting past parked cars on the side of the road without fear of losing control. My only warning is to watch the battery leads. Mine were sucked into the center drive shaft. It didnt damage the leads, surprisingly, but it did completely melt the center driveshaft. Lesson learned. My fault for not paying closer attention.It is worth the normal price, but if you see it on special, snatch it up.

Holy hell. Arrma has done it again. Fast out of the box little to no steering trim required. And with the included pinion, wow! It's almost hard to find room to run it. And AMain has a lifelong customer here. Got 2 of these for the wife and I, got the green one from AMain and a blue one from Horizon since it was backordered on AMain. By the time I hit order the green one I was purchasing here was backorder. No biggie I thought. The other will come and waiting isn't a problem. 7 days later my AMain order shows at my door. The other order from Horizon still has no tracking or anything. Thanks for the great customer service AMain. I'll be back for more.

This car is one of the best out-of-the box Rtr speed car you can get. Has a lot of potential for upgrades etc.
very strong and durable build.
Also great for some 1/8 track racing.
