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 (Red)
My first Arrma vehicle was great vehicle to bash around but at little expensive side, FAST!! with 3S and included pinion gear. All bolt, nuts, screws are well secured, received 3 star cause few issues found out of the box and after first run. Using 3S 5200mAh LiPo on the first run. Test ground: Grass and partial dirty.

1. Radio system is dialed in out of the box, just need few trims and adjust the AVC.
2. Well controllable chassis and all around tire. Turn buckles all around.
3. Expandable Radio for cellphone telemetries.

1. Front input shaft gear and front diff gear binds on one spot of the gear, took every thing apart and put it back but still can feel the binding but better than out of box. Bend input shaft gear or bad diff yoke housing might be the cause, need more inspection.
2. Spur gear and pinion gear mesh not set correctly. Seems Arrma had this issue at the factory end. Several youtubers had same problem. Haven't got a chance to take it apart and verify, it just got that mesh or clutch noise when power on.
3. No center drive shaft support. Although it a short wheel base, but drive shaft warbles during high run. easy fix with under $10 fix with Arrma part# ARA310878.

My first Arrma RC car the vorteks 4x4! While this stadium truck looks completely badass I had bad experience with it, first off on my very first battery pack the motor seized up and was no good. I put a reedy motor and it was ok, shocks failed after about 10 battery packs, upgraded shocks with slash GTRs. Spur gear stripped so I bought the steel spurgear. Out of the box I would give it 2 out of 5 stars. After the upgrades it’s a 4 out of 5 stars. This thing eats up anything in its way and it’s pretty beefy, great basher! Maybe I just got a bad batch one?

Super fun to drive and very fast for its size/scale. My only con is I wish it was slightly higher off the ground otherwise a phenomenal truck!

Arrma Vorteks 4X4 3S BLX 1/10 RTR Brushless Stadium Truck (Red)
The Vorteks is a savage! I bought this one just for bashing and it is a tough 1/10. Fast ? too! Haven’t even had to upgrade the speed pinion yet cause it is a fun speed. Oh yeah also I like how Arrma made the wheelie bar on the Vorteks hold wheelie long and strong. Definitely needed this one in my collection.

This truck really is good, Handles well, wheelies forever, and is very simple to work on. However, my radio was not bound out of the box and the gear mesh was really tight, After fixing those I set my steering and throttle endpoints, and in 5 minutes and I was up and running. Overall, it's a very fun car 4/5.

Hands down one of the best 3s 1/10 scale I have ever owned.straight out the box stock gear I got 54mph then on my 20t I got 59mph.what other stock 3s 1/10 rc cars out there can do that straight from the box?.
