The Arrma Outcast 6S BLX is a battle hardened monster that goes where it wants. Designed to break the mold, Outcast 6S is a dedicated action machine with performance that could make you an RC truck stunt hero! Outcast 6S is primed for multi-surface driving action, no matter how hard the elements fight back. Complete with super-strong steel, lightweight aluminum and rugged composite materials; when you are behind the wheel of the Outcast 6S, you are in charge of a powerful force.
The Outcast 6S bodyshell features a future styled retro truck bodyshell with aggressive bolt-on style over-fenders and a roll cage fitted with sacrificial screws that protect the roof from wear when sliding upside-down at 60mph. Outcast 6S boasts a strong composite center body support for added protection when the action gets upside-down. High-wall composite dirt guards at the front of the chassis protect the electronics and the center transmission.
The 2017 Outcast has gone through some changes over the last years model. To keep dirt from building up around the top of the shock caps, the Outcast now uses shock cap guards. For the servo mount, material has been added to the mount to increase stiffness in this area, sharpening steering feel. Also, the gearboxes have been beefed-u; strength has been strategically added in key areas for even more durability.
Defy the Laws of Physics Designed to STUNT, the short wheelbase of the Outcast 6S allows it to pull wheelies, flips and tricks with ease. Anything is possible for Outcast 6S. A wheelie bar is integrated into the wing mount. It allows long, high angled wheelies, while the rear wing aids high speed stability and adds to the super-cool looks.
6S Power The battery tray in the Outcast 6S model holds your batteries in TIGHT. Two hook-and-loop straps, fitted perpendicular to each other, provide a secure fit for your batteries. Secure fitting means batteries can be safely mounted side-by-side or one on top of the other. Plus, the battery tray incorporates a balance plug stowage area. Battery balance plugs are held in place with a rubber strap, keeping them away from rotating parts. Wire routing clips fit to the long hook-and-loop strap and keep battery to ESC wires away from rotating parts of the model. The front upper brace of the battery adjusts itself to the height of your battery packs.
Arrma TOUGH Soaking up a wide range of surfaces is made easy with the included red anodized adjustable shocks. Factory set to handle everything from fast speed runs to snow and mud chucking, no matter where you choose to bash, these high-quality units will keep you stable and in-control. Strong anodized aluminum parts used where it matters, providing strong, reliable performance. A wide heavy duty front bumper provides protection.
The included BLX185 150A waterproof ESC provides consistent power control and is 6S LiPo ready. Fitted with super-reliable XT90 connectors and sporting a built-in cooling fan for reduced heat during intense driving action, the BLX185 ESC has over-voltage protection, and a two-stage LiPo cut off for added cell management. The fitted 10AWG high-quality wires and 6V BEC unit are combined with a three mode throttle profile (FWD/REVERSE/BRAKE) to provide the ultimate driving experience. Recommended battery specification: 5000mAh - 35C minimum - per battery pack
The BLX 2050kV brushless motor provides speed and torque and is perfectly balanced for use with the BLX185 ESC unit. A beautifully etched black aluminum motor can provides a premium look, while a four-pole internal configuration keeps the power supply smooth and consistent. Gold bullet connectors provide fast and easy wire removal when you need to clean your vehicle. The aluminum motor can provides increased heat dissipation from the finned body section. A dual motor shaft flat section provides a safe and secure pinion gear fitting.

Have only had this truck a few days. Make sure to buy a different servo if you buy this truck. The servo in mine didn't even make it off my workbench before it broke. I installed RPM arms, front bumper/skid, made a center brace, installed some lipo's and went outside. Drive 50 feet, tried turning around and the servo just screamed and wouldn't turn the tires. I had a spare slow servo I put in until I got a better one shipped. I now have a savox sw-1210sg in it. Seems to have plenty of power/speed, haven't driven it yet with this servo.
Running 4S with 16/50 gearing, the motor runs a bit warm when 80F outside and running in the grass, I was reaching 170F.
I just installed a hobbywing single fan motor cooler that was a bit too big to hold onto the motor, but fit snug after crimping it a bit in a vice. Then I had to modify the center cage/body support thing where the pin goes through on the motor side to cut the pin a bit shorter and cut a little off the plastic where the clip goes through the pin. I suppose I could have turned the fan further to clear, but I wanted it as upright as possible. Appears the esc fan output has enough power to run both the esc and motor fan.
I've bashed this one day since I got it. Ran 2 sets of SMC 7400mah 2S packs through. I got 30 minutes of run time at the skate park and 20 minutes at the regular park. The truck definitely needs heavier diff oils in it as it unloads the front diff constantly whenever you give it throttle.
I'm running proline trencher 3.8's on mine, didn't even try the stock tires since I run at skate parks 90% of the time. I didn't think the tread would hold up to concrete running. The trenchers hold up pretty well. I've just replaced the diff oil with associated 100k front/rear and 500k center. I also used kyosho 13x18 shims to adjust the ring/pinion gear mesh and a set of mugen shims for inside the diffs for the spider gears and under the large sun gears. Hoping this helps the diffs last a long time. I also replaced the 6x18x5mm bearings on the diffs with rubber shielded vs metal shielded it comes with stock.
This is a completely different handling beast than my savage flux or brushless revo. It can take big air so much better. I have a feeling my other 2 MT's aren't going to get much run time now that I have this. It's just too fun!
This thing is a beast. I've owned it two weeks now and run about 15 batteries through it. Arrma's Customer Service is seriously lacking right now. I'm not taking a star off, because the truck is still awesome. A few problems here and there but overall a truck like none other.
Cons ~Arrma Customer Service is basically nonexistent right now
~Center Diff Oil leaked within first 3 runs. Other have same problem I've found.
~Pivot bushing on Steering blocks back out, making front sloppy - apply locktite and re-tighten.
~Some parts back-ordered for months. ~Steering servo is a joke. My broke in 10 mins, no wrecks...yet. Customer service answered the first call and now crickets. Called once more and held of 45 mins with no one in front of me in the queue. Emailed twice and no response. Savox 2273 is good upgrade. ~Engine gets hot on 6s. Needs vent hole up front and cooling fins.
Pros ~Tough as hell. Nose dive, kartwheel, huge jumps, hit stuff... it takes it all with stride.
~Tires. I'm careful with letting mine balloon too much. They get great traction and let you flip on 6s easy.
~4s vs 6s. 4 is fun, 6 is crazy fun/scary. 4 you can wheelie a bit but no flips. 6 is off the hook, I don't even know what possible
~Body. Roll bar is nice. The fact you can put zippo flint is pretty cool. Plastic is thick and durable.
~Fun factor. This thing gets people going. People stop to watch this thing run. My neighbors are always watching me launch this thing in my back yard and tear around the track.
Best truck ever in my opinion. Super easy to work on, takes huge beatings and still rages on, dirt guards work wonders, there's an abundance of power on 6s, looks like nothing else on the market, and it has super predictable handling. I have no issue hitting jumps right time and time again! So far I only bent the aluminum link that attaches the two bellcranks, which I bent back and still works perfect.
