The Arrma Kraton 8S BLX Brushless RTR 1/5 4WD Monster Truck takes bashing to the next level. Its metal-reinforced design lets you 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 anodized aluminum chassis plate features composite side pods and a triangular center 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 Kraton 8S BLX charging over challenging terrain comes from its 1250Kv Spektrum Firma brushless motor. The torque and acceleration is incredible. For quick access, the motor is mounted with three bolts onto a sliding aluminum mount.

The waterproof electronics module — also designed for easy access — houses and protects more innovative Spektrum equipment. ARRMA has equipped the Kraton 8S 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 DX3 3-channel transmitter without requiring multiple wires, sensors, modules and links. Just download the free Spektrum Dashboard App to your mobile device, which connects wirelessly via Bluetooth to the DX3 transmitter. Then you can view motor RPM, ESC temperature, receiver voltage, drive pack voltage and more data in real-time.

The ultra-tough Kraton 8S truck body with high-downforce wing is available factory trimmed, painted and decaled in two striking color schemes. A center protection tower on the chassis interfaces with the roll cage for increased body durability. It all rides on multi-split spoke wheels with strong, durable aluminum wheel hubs, and multi-terrain dBoots COPPERHEAD 2 SB tires with a tread pattern designed for extreme, all-terrain action.

Arrma Kraton 8S BLX Brushless RTR 1/5 4WD Monster Truck (Green)
This is my first Arrma product. The Kraton 8S handles like a smaller truck once adjusted. The K8 seems to do very well with whatever is thrown at it while driving. Stable, smooth and takes jumps well. However the power and acceleration were a bit underwhelming at first. Put in 80c batteries first, that helped. Then reprogrammed the ESC. Set the "punch" from 3 to 5 and advanced the motor timing 15 degrees. This is all in the manual for those who want to know how to do it. Wow! Impressive improvements and really woke the truck up! Top speed on GPS now 52mph and gets there in a hurry. It now really works and am very happy with all aspects of this truck. The upgraded chassis bracing is a winner. This is an awesome RTR truck and would recommend to anyone looking to get into the larger scale RC's.

Vehicle is quite slow out of the box hitting 39mph for an 8s vehicle is by no means fast. Throw that 17t pinion in the garbage and chuck on a 23t pinion in to get 47mph. Be prepared to break the stock arms almost instantly because they are made of glass. Go ahead and buy rpm arms right now at this very moment while you purchase this truck. Other than these minor things that I personally think are BS considering the price of this the truck handles and drives excellent, jumps excellent! If I had to choose between this or the Xmaxx then I would much rather get an Xmaxx. Still an alright truck though

I love this truck, it is awesome. Very stable and reasonably long run times. I have not tried gearing it up yet, it is fast enough for what I do just the way it is.

This thing is monstrous and it's cool. But.. on unboxing it today and further research I have to say I regret my purchase. In the quest to find aftermarket wheels and tires I'm not having any luck. The steering knuckles on both sides already have a couple millimeters of play and I haven't even ran it I have just pulled it out of the box. I've also been searching for some other parts to upgrade out if the box and I'm not having much luck with any of it, it seems as though I'm using arrma parts or nothing. I hope the market opens up for more aftermarket goodies soon.
