The Arrma Vorteks 4X4 3S BLX represents the highest level of speed and technology found yet in the proven tough ARRMA 4X4 platform. The Vortex 4x4 includes a 2S or 3S compatible Spektrum Firma 3200Kv brushless motor, and is a rocket right out of the box. Using a 3S LiPo battery and an optional pinion gear, it is the first ARRMA 4X4 3S BLX model capable of 60mph and more!

The proven tough ARRMA 4X4 platform lets you bash at high speeds in almost any environment — off-road, on dirt and grass, on parking lots and over paved and asphalt surfaces. Its durability comes from a strong composite chassis featuring extended height dirt defenders, oil-filled shocks with silicone O-rings, metal geared differentials and more. Rugged bumpers and high-traction dBoots Katar tires mounted on tough, gun-metal colored wheels add to its unstoppable performance. The VORTEKS 4X4 3S BLX also includes a sleek, new stadium truck body with tough, injection-molded wing and protective roof skids.

ARRMA adds the security of advanced Spektrum electronics to the VORTEKS Stadium Truck's speed and toughness to create a totally exhilarating bashing experience. With its included DX3 DSMR 2.4GHz radio system, SR6200A receiver and Firma 100A ESC, this is the first ARRMA 1/10 scale 4X4 model to provide the benefits of AVC (Active Vehicle Control) and Smart technology straight out of the box.

With the AVC system's on-demand traction control, you can dial-in extra stability as needed to carve corners or nail jumps without backing off the power. You have full-throttle freedom over rough terrain, slick surfaces and loose dirt. When you don't want the extra traction, just dial back the stability. The DX3 radio's AVC system works behind the scenes, making hundreds of minute steering and throttle adjustments per second to keep the VORTEKS Stadium Truck precisely on the line you want to hold.

Download the optional Spektrum Dashboard app to your mobile device — it's available free from the iPhone App Store and Google Play — to take full advantage of the Smart electronics' telemetry capabilities. Once you connect your mobile device wirelessly via Bluetooth to the VORTEKS Stadium Truck's DX3 transmitter, you can use it to view top speed, battery voltage and other essential data in real time (requires an optional BT2000 Bluetooth Module, available separately).

Arrma Vorteks 4X4 3S BLX 1/10 RTR Brushless Stadium Truck (Purple)
Great little 3s, so much fun when working. I bought two of these. One burnt out a servo on second battery run. The other was glitchy out of the box - turns out the radio is not working. Dealing with Horizon Hobby is a time consuming event and parts seem to be back ordered. However with updated servos (savox) and radios (TQi) these things are way more capable and fun than a Slash or Senton 4x4’s. But if you really want a Basher get a MAXX. I have more Arrma vehicles than Traxxas so speaking from my experience with these 1/10 scale 4x4’s.

Hands down the best 1/10 scale 3s truck, it’s strong as shit, flies level off jumps, and it hits 55 mph out of the box, every moment of this powerful rc puts a smile on your face and no this not a paid promotional review I literally love this truck

This is a very good car/truck for beginner to novice enthusiasts. Out of the box it handles very well in just about any terrain. High speeds on concrete or asphalt needed a bit more steering control and adjustments as the front end was very twitchy. Its fairly easy to maintain and clean. The radio controls are responsive and have plenty of features. Overall, I would recommend this little basher to any level enthusiast.

Good and a Hiccup,
Overall the truggy itself is much more substantial in person than what the photos portray. The body and paint look amazing, and she is solid. Now, the hiccup: Spektrum Electronics. They haven't quite figured out all the bugs yet. I was another one of the unfortunate few whose car arrived un-bound to the transmitter. I bound it, calibrated it, and then had no right steering (I had never seen this before, all settings were set appropriately, and she turned great to the left). Swapped servos, issue remained. Re-bound radio, got my steering, but now I had no throttle input. Tried to recalibrate, would not register past the "set neutral" step. swapped stock servo back, rebound again, still had steering, but still no throttle and calibration wouldn't register throttle or brake. Tried calling Horizon Hobbies tech line, but now it's an e-mail only system (very aggravating).

Now this is why it's a hiccup. While trying to register the product and put in a help request through their site the esc gave me a loud 2 beep (as it should for throttle set, after I left it on {oops} while writing the e-mail. I grabbed the transmitter, set brake, and now I have a calibrated radio.... and once again, no right steering. I ordered direct through Horizon Hobby, as I had already used the Arrma discount for a TLR Tuned Typhon. lol. Once I get this straightened out I am sure this is going to be one of my favorites in the 3s line (I own the Typhon 3s, and Senton). This is the second spektrum esc I have had just bizarre issues with and difficulty calibrating. The good thing is, once you finally get it all to "click" the spektrum seems to hold up great, it's just a lot of initial gremlins you have to get past.

Amain Hobbies were knowledgable and quick to respond to my questions, purchased an Arrma Vorteks, Granite (brushed) and Granite BLX.
These are my first rc cars and they are exactly like the you tube videos, durable, fast and exciting to use. Pleased with the purchase and i would highly recommend

Fast for 3s. It handles really well and takes a good beating. The plastic driveshafts constantly break, so upgrading to metal ones is a must.

Perfect Mother's Day gift, wife absolutely loves it. (Pink/Purple)
On 2S for a newbie driver, it went great, but when we stepped up to 3S, her smile widened.
This thing is fast out of box, and just keeps getting faster the more you drive it.
Solid as a rock.
Highly recommended for all levels of hobbyists and beginners alike.

Great little basher. Don’t let the 3s fool you either this thing will fly and do wheelies! I’ve only ran it one time so far but it’s been a great Rc.
