Xtra Speed have released a whole host of upgrade parts for the Arrma Kraton, Outcast, Senton or Talion 6S. There is new front and rear shock towers, steering servo mount, front and rear chassis brace and finally a centre diff block. All are machined from aluminium with chamfered edges and anodised a stealthy black.
ST Racing Concepts have produced two new items for the Arrma Limitless with their new graphite high-downforce rear wing support and graphite steering bellcrank plate. The high-quality rear wing support with its CNC machined aluminium cross member provides the ultimate aero dynamic package for the rear wing of your Limitless. This package will drastically reduce any vibration and flex of the rear wing and support the wing for maximum rear traction during those insane high-speed runs. Available in red, gun metal and silver. The graphite steering bellcrank upper plate for the Outcast and Infraction/Limitless tightens up the precision of the steering bellcrank system and adds great factory looks to your Arrma vehicle.
Arrma have released an EXB full option roller version of their Mojave 6S BLX 1/7th scale 4WD Desert Racer. Born from the biggest airs and harshest terrain, this car comes loaded out of the box with the toughest materials and most resilient design features, just strap in your preferred electronics and go. This version includes tons of aluminium parts as standard including a cool etched chassis, front and rear shock towers, front and rear chassis brace, top plate, servo mount and front upper hanger. The transmission has also been beefed up with a limited slip front and centre differential, while for durability the turnbuckles and front upper hinge pins are now heavy duty steel. The whole package is topped off with and exclusive EXB matte & gloss finish body with gunmetal coloured wheels.
Arrma have introduced their refreshed Mega and BLX line ready-to-run basher kits that feature a range of improvements. New key features across the range include the Spektrum SLT3 radio system, rubber-shielded bearings throughout, strengthened chassis, larger power module pull tabs, improved dirt sealing, redesigned steering to allow stones and debris to clear more easily, vented tyres, silicone shock O-rings, castellated slipper pads and sliding motor mesh as well as Safe-D pinion gears. The Granite and Senton trucks also sport all-new body designs. The updated sets will hit stores very soon.
Made for Arrma’s popular Kraton 8S and Outcast 8S trucks are new heavy-duty front upper and lower A-arms coming from RPM. The Arrma Kraton 8S and Outcast 8S are 12kg of high-flying, dirt shredding, jump-killing fun and RPM’s replacement front A-arms are designed with the backyard basher in mind and can handle some serious abuse and come back for more. The redesigned front lower A-arms have a triple beam style construction designed to spread impact energy across all three beams. Each beam’s cross-section is 15.8mm tall and 9.5mm wide. These massive beams reduce unwanted flex during normal suspension movement, yet allow impact-absorption during those not-so-perfect landings and crashes. RPM also moved the inner cross brace away from the chassis, eliminating the droop stop entirely. While this may seem counter-intuitive, RPM’s test truck’s chassis was bent at the droop stops, clearly illustrating that extreme impacts were too much for the chassis plate to handle. After all, there’s not much worse than a bent chassis. The front upper A-arms use a dual beam construction where each beam is 12.7mm tall and 9.5mm wide. The designers eliminated the tube shape over the hinge pin to eliminate built-in moulding stresses while beefing up the leading edge hinge pin support to add some much needed strength and durability. Both upper and lower A-arms are moulded with fingernail slots that allow easy access to remove the optional aluminium support ring at the pivot ball. The arms are made in the USA from RPM’s trademark blend of ultra durable materials and they are available as left and right side sets.
Horizon Hobby have introduced the new Arrma 1/5 Outcast 8S BLX 4WD Brushless ready-to-run stunt truck. Driven by 8S brushless power and an Arrma-tough design, the Outcast 8S BLX 4WD delivers the torque, acceleration and speed bashers need for extreme action in 1/5th scale. The ready-to-run stunt truck comes equipped to defy gravity right out of the box. From the heavy-duty front bumper to the wheelie bar in back, it’s engineered to do it all: long, tall wheelies; tight, fast donuts; standing and aerial backflips; high leaps into the air; and more — over all terrain, in all conditions. The truck includes a Spektrum DX3 Smart transmitter and SRS6110AT AVC Active Vehicle Control receiver that take full advantage of the Spektrum Smart Firma brushless motor and ESC’s telemetry capabilities. Users can download the free Spektrum Dashboard App to their mobile device and follow motor RPM, ESC temperature, receiver voltage, drive pack voltage and more data in real-time.
Coming soon from Arrma is their new 1/8th scale Kraton 4WD Extreme Bash Roller speed monster truck. The trucks builds on the proven 1/8th scale Kraton RTR and made of strong anodised 7075 T6 aluminium, its laser-etched chassis plate gains further rigidity from the use of front and rear aluminium chassis braces. Strong composite chassis side pods and a centre body support and brace provide more rugged resilience. Durable steel driveshafts plus all-metal diff outdrives and gearbox internals keep the heavy-duty 4-wheel drivetrain rolling over punishing tracks. An EXtreme Bash toughened suspension system smooths the ride, with a steel rear suspension mount and adjustable oil-filled shocks mounted on 7075 T6 anodised aluminium front and rear shock towers. Also included are EXB heavy-duty front and rear arms with aluminium strengthening cap, EXB heavy-duty steel turnbuckles, EXB heavy-duty front upper steel hinge pins, EXB plated limited-slip differentials, an EXB red-anodised aluminium servo mount, the EXB large volume waterproof receiver box, and an EXB front bumper. The trucks roll on aggressive dBoots Copperhead 2 tyres mounted on multi-spoke wheels with durable hubs to deliver all-terrain traction — assisted by a high downforce wing that adds an aggressive edge to the look of the exclusive EXB matte and gloss effect finished truck body.
Coming from Pro-Line and made for the Arrma Kraton 8S monster truck are the new pre-cut Brute polycarbonate and Bash Armour body shells. The Brute is Pro-Line’s take on a modern truck and features a bold grill with eye-pleasing body lines sure to turn heads at the local bash spot. This body has been specifically designed to fit the unique shape of the Kraton 8S while allowing to add a custom paint job to the truck when using the clear polycarbonate version. Window masks, detailed decal sheet and paint then peel over-spray film are all included.
