Arrma 1/5 Kraton 4×4 8S BLX RTR speed monster truck

Arrma have announced the soon release of their all-new 1/5th scale Kraton 4×4 8S BLX ready-to-run speed monster truck. Its metal-reinforced design lets drovers blast up, over, and through bruising obstacles without worry. Metal shafts, turnbuckles and outdrives, plus all-metal internal gears, give the drivetrain and suspension system unstoppable strength. The anodised aluminium chassis plate features composite side pods and a triangular centre brace for maximum durability. Ultra-thick composite front and rear shock towers hold massive 20mm bore, oil-filled adjustable shocks that soak-up bumps and jolts. The power that sends the Speed Monster Truck charging easily over challenging terrain comes from its 1250Kv Spektrum Firma brushless motor. For quick access, the motor is mounted with three bolts onto a sliding aluminium mount.

The waterproof electronics module — also designed for easy access — houses and protects more innovative Spektrum equipment. Arrma has equipped the truck with a state-of-the-art Firma Smart 160A ESC and SR6100AT AVC Active Vehicle Control receiver. Innovative connectivity enables all the Smart electronics to send valuable telemetry data to the included Spektrum DX2E Active transmitter without requiring multiple wires, sensors, modules and links. Owners just download the free Spektrum Dashboard App to their mobile device, which connects wirelessly via Bluetooth to the DX2E transmitter, allowing to view motor RPM, ESC temperature, receiver voltage, drive pack voltage and more data in real-time.

The ultra-tough truck body with high-downforce wing is available factory trimmed, painted and decaled in two striking colour schemes. A centre protection tower on the chassis interfaces with the roll cage for increased body durability. The 760mm long trucks weighs in at 11kg and it rides on multi-split spoke wheels with strong, durable aluminium wheel hubs, and multi-terrain dBoots Copperhead 2 SB tyres with a tread pattern designed for extreme, all-terrain action. The vehicle is ready-to-run out of the box and comes with nearly everything needed — just add batteries and a charger and the truck is capable of 88km/h speeds in optimum driving conditions using an 8S LiPo setup and optional pinion gear.
