The Arrma Typhon 6S BLX Brushless RTR 1/8 4WD Buggy delivers next level bashing performance. Designed fast, designed tough, and now outfitted with a versatile Spektrum 3-channel radio system and Firma brushless electronics, it's all set for fast action on all terrain, in all conditions.

The ready-to-run package now also includes a 3-channel Spektrum SLT3 radio and Spektrum SR315 dual protocol receiver. Perfect for long hours of fatigue-free bashing, the transmitter's ergonomic design features a foam steering wheel for precise fingertip control and an improved hand grip and trigger feel. If you're a new driver, you'll be able to set throttle limits at 50% or 75% until you're ready to use the full speed potential. The SLT3 is compatible with Tactic SLT receivers to run other RTR vehicles you may own, and includes a third channel to control optional features such as lights and winches on models that have them.

Because the SR315 receiver can use SLT and DSMR protocols, you can easily upgrade to a Spektrum DSMR transmitter later — then, download the free Spektrum Dashboard app for your mobile device and take full advantage of the Smart telemetry capabilities already present in the Firma electronics. You'll be able to receive real-time updates of ESC temperature, receiver (BEC) voltage, drive pack voltage and motor RPM.

This is my second Arrma. I have a V2 Infraction and wanted something that I could take anywhere. Wow!!! This thing is awesome!!! I'm so glad I didn't get a Mojave. The Typhon is fast, nimble and is a flier. If you can swing the $500. go for it. My wife literally called it a "giggle machine".

Arrma Typhon 6S BLX Brushless RTR 1/8 4WD Buggy (Red/Black) (V5)
This is the best Rc car for dollar.

It can do anything jump, race, on road, off road it a beast on 4s and 6s.

Its not too big to throw in your car and the weight of it keeps it super stable at speed.

I love it and will get another one. It's my favorite rc other then my 4tec and Fazer mk2.

You Don't need any upgrades it's great of the box. I did get the front bumper, rear skid and the front cv's for added protection and smoother steering.

Its the best!

Love the Updates! The new electronics from spectrum are a big improvement over the old units, and they were great. And they fixed the low-end cogging that some of the older blx models had. The model hits the claimed speeds with ease (unlike some models where you can push and get 'close'). Plus, even on the 20T pinion, still runs cool after multiple speed passes. A solid buggy with quality that far exceeds it's price!
-one note, the body is still drilled for the pass-through antenna even though the antenna has been moved to the inside not requiring the hole.

Amain hobbies is amazing, can’t fault them at all, my only issue is with horizon hobbies. My Typhon esc died 3 days after getting it their customer service is dismal.

So aside from that I will continue to get my RC supplies from Amain Hobbies.

Full stars.

Arrma Typhon 6S BLX Brushless RTR 1/8 4WD Buggy (Red/Black) (V5)
After a bunch of research, I purchased this awesome car. It’s my first Arrma purchase and I’m 100% satisfied and gratified. The Typhon has seen pavement, dirt, synthetic turf and snow. I have only been running Spektrum 4S 50C batteries and this car is a beast. I can only imagine what it can do with a 6S. My Typhon has had plenty of spills and has yet to receive anything worse than a few scratches. I can’t wait to beef it up and do some serious bashing.

Purchased the Typhon 6s after buying the Kraton 6s. Man the Typhon is a blast to drive. Hugs the road well on any surfaces so far. 10 packs through the car so far and no issues. Diffs were shimmed correctly out of the box, however the fluid in the front and rear was a bit low. Very happy with the purchased, super fast shipping from AMain to boot!

Arrma Typhon 6S BLX Brushless RTR 1/8 4WD Buggy (Red/Black) (V5)
*I live in New York state and we have a lot of snow, this buggy handled everything I threw at it the first couple of times.* after the 4th run on 4s I decided I was ready for 6s and well that didn't go so well both of the rear tires blew out their foams at the same time but there was no actual rip in the tires or gluing so I don't know how that happened. The servo also died after I had set the endpoints for it, the servo was fast and powerful but it seems to be not be as durable as I would've hoped.
So in the end the tires aren't great but they're decent for an RTR if a bit too soft. And the servo still isn't perfect but if you treat it better than I did it'll be fine.
