The Arrma Typhon V3 3S BLX Brushless RTR 1/8 4WD Buggy makes the move into a brushless 1/8 scale Speed Buggy action easier than ever. Fast, rugged and factory-built, the 3S LiPo-compatible ARRMA TYPHON 4X4 3S BLX RTR comes ready out of the box to bash on any terrain. Precision aluminum, tough steel and composite materials come together for an easy-to-maintain, super-durable vehicle design whose high downforce wing and low center of gravity, with wide arms and narrow wheels and tires, improve handling over race tracks, trails, muddy courses, skate parks and more. This version features new equipment that further increases the original buggy’s already impressive performance and durability.

The TYPHON 4X4 3S BLX RTR is DESIGNED FAST, DESIGNED TOUGH — built for exciting bashing speeds and extreme, all-terrain durability. Features that enhance its unstoppable performance include a stronger chassis and retained hinge pin plates; steering with more clearance for stones; a castellated slipper pad and sliding gear mesh; and rubber-shielded bearings throughout.

It also now includes a Spektrum SLT3 transmitter and SLR300 receiver. The transmitter is ergonomically designed for long periods of fatigue-free bashing and has a foam wheel for precise fingertip control plus an improved hand grip and trigger feel. New bashers will be able to set throttle limits at 50% or 75% until they are 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.

ARRMA now powers the TYPHON 4X4 3S BLX with a brushless system featuring its BLX100 ESC and the Spektrum Firma 3200Kv brushless motor. The combination provides incredible torque, acceleration and speed. The transmission and chassis are ruggedly engineered to take full advantage of the electronics’ power — in ARRMA tradition, DESIGNED FAST, DESIGNED TOUGH.

It has the ingenious modular design perfected by ARRMA engineers for easy component access and maintenance. The power module, with improved dirt management, consists of the motor with ARRMA heatsink and cooling fan, plus motor plate, slipper clutch assembly and gear cover. The power module can be detached from the chassis as a complete unit by removing just one screw. With the power module removed, the slipper clutch can be reached easily for adjustments by taking out three screws that attach the gear cover. The gear ratio can be finely tuned as the power module now uses a sliding motor mesh design.

A two-piece molding screwed to the Speed Buggy’s chassis serves as its electronics module, containing a waterproof receiver box, servo mount and ESC tray. The SLR300 receiver mounts inside the receiver box for protection from dirt and moisture. The ultra-compact ESC is screwed to the top of the module, allowing quick access to the on/off switch, while the servo mounts to the side. All three components can be removed together, quickly and easily.

The differential module houses each differential unit in an innovative yoke design. Only eight screws need to be removed to release the front and rear yokes. The power module can then be detached, allowing you to pivot the gearbox cases for differential access. The TYPHON 4X4 3S BLX RTR comes brushless-ready with 37T 1.35mod diffs with silicone O-rings. The large gears can withstand huge torque, and internal metal gears have been chosen for reliability during extreme bashing.

Its full-time 4WD transmission uses strong front, rear, and centerline telescopic driveshafts that can’t be lost during heavy impacts, unlike dogbones. A simple, dependable, responsive steering assembly complements the ultra-reliable drive system and features a servo horn with built-in servo saver. The TYPHON 4X4 3S BLX RTR includes the waterproof Spektrum SPMS651 metal-geared digital servo for 15% more torque than the previous version’s ADS-7M servo.

The self-bleeding, oil-filled shocks, now with silicone O-rings, use a tried and tested, coil-over design for simple maintenance and amazing handling. Their innovative rod-end has a molded-in spring perch for extra toughness. High chassis sides and a close-fitting buggy body limit the amount of dirt and debris that can get into the chassis tub. Front and rear bumpers offer defense against impacts.

Tough gunmetal colored, multi-spoke wheels with vented dBoots 2-HO tires give the 1/8 scale TYPHON 4X4 3S BLX RTR Speed Buggy effective traction for bashing on almost any terrain. With the metallic-finish body and forged composite detail, it also looks as great as it performs. A stylish, high-downforce wing keeps all four wheels planted as you explore the upper limits of its outrageous speed range.

Arrma Typhon V3 3S BLX Brushless RTR 1/8 4WD Buggy (Red)
I just want to say that this car is fast right out of the box and I had no idea how the engineering on this car is over the top. This was a bucket list gift to my self I am 66 yrs old and never had so much fun it made me feel like a kid again and it’s not that I don’t have any hobbies it’s just another thing to do in my spare time. I am retired and have a little over 3 acres of land and I thought this would be a great place to run a remote controlled car and this car fit the bill. As you know this is definitely an adult hobby in many respects not just the expense oh and this can get expensive no doubt but the repairs and up keep on this car is not for the faint at heart so in a nut shell I’m all in now and will be buying another car or truck to add to my fun I am having not to mention everyone that sees this thing can’t believe how fast and maneuverable this car is. And every one has a smile. So thanks Amain Hobbies

This buggy is awesome! This is my first Arrma rc and certainly will not be my last! The performance you get for the price really is a good deal. Looks like it should be easy to work on too. My second time out I ran it into a rock at about 20mph. It took the hit on the bottom shock screw, bent the screw and cracked the suspension arm but the shock was fine! I got the suspension arm off, epoxied and clamped it overnight and I was ready to run again the next day. If you don't own an Arrma yet, go for it. You will not be disappointed!

I really love this RC. So far I've had a blast with it until the second time out when a rear wheel fell off. With some research I found out that it's very common and an easy fix with some loctite. I gave it 4 stars because it would have been nice if the manufacturer took a little time and fixed it before shipping.

This buggy is scary fast at 100 percent throttle, but it's incredible. I'm planning on ordering the 6s version.

Arrma Typhon V3 3S BLX Brushless RTR 1/8 4WD Buggy (Red)
I purchased this car for myself just as a fun toy to have. After being out of the RC game for many years, I researched for a long time until I decided on the Typon 3S BLX. I have run it a few times in dry conditions and wet and snowy conditions this car performed without a problem. I read in other review about the transmitter having a short range, I have not had any issues with that at all. Overall, I really enjoy this car and I am very happy with AMain website and the speed of delivery.

Arrma Typhon V3 3S BLX Brushless RTR 1/8 4WD Buggy (Red)
I purchased this one for myself since my son started of with the Brushed version. I have Major Plans for mine but have yet to run her. Although she doesn't come with the Lipo or Charger, im completely satisfied and I picked up a 3s lipo/Charger from Amain as well! I want to run her semi stock..I have already Dropped some Hoons on her and she's Beautiful...then I placed her back into her box, ready to run with my son and his Brothers too, as I introduce them to our Wonderful Hobby. But my 3s Typhon, I will update as I run and start my mods...stay tuned...better yet get you one. Tell them Chris sent you, you won't be disappointed.
