Product Code: AR102696
RRP: £349.99

The TYPHON™ 4X4 3S BLX brings the power, strength, and style of the TYPHON 6S BLX buggy to a 3S-capable version that reaches extreme 50+ mph speeds. Making your move into 1/8 scale brushless buggy bashing has never been easier - or more exciting!

ARRMA powers the TYPHON 4X4 3S BLX with its BLX100 brushless system, featuring a 3200Kv brushless motor and 100A ESC. This 3S LiPo-capable setup has proven its speed and toughness in the GRANITE 4x4 BLX monster truck and SENTON 4x4 BLX short course truck. As in those machines, the transmission and chassis have been beefed up to allow this buggy to take full advantage of the electronics' power.

The low centre of gravity, with wide arms and narrow buggy wheels and tyres, improves handling over all of your favourite bashing terrain - race tracks, trails, muddy courses, skate parks, and more.

The body is the same size as that of the TYPHON 6S BLX model and captures the same sleek look, with body mounting points tweaked to match the mounting points available on the chassis.

Designed to be TOUGH

ARRMA have redefined the proven ARRMA 4X4 3S BLX platform to create this 1/8th Scale Speed Buggy. High-strength hook-and-loop straps are used to keep your batteries in place.

Power Module Design

Easy-access Power Module assembly can be taken out in seconds, with the removal of just one screw. The centre shaft assembly* is telescopic to assist with easy disassembly and is sprung-loaded to ensure it stays in position during use.
*Patent Pending


Electronic Module Design

Easy-access Electronics Module assembly can be taken out with the removal of only five screws. The module offers quick and easy access to the servo, electronic speed controller (ESC) and receiver. The two-piece moulding comprises a lower box and upper lid that are sealed with high-quality rubber seals. The ESC and steering servo are attached to this moulding, whilst the receiver sits inside the waterproof box.

Differential Module Design

Both the front and rear diff modules are easy to access in the TYPHON 4x4 3S BLX, ensuring that you spend more time bashing and less time in the workshop.

Differentials

These differentials are TOUGH. The main differential gears have been super-sized with large pitch gears that have been designed to withstand huge torques, allowing lightweight composite material to be used for reduced rotating mass without compromising strength. The differential internals feature full-metal straight-cut gears, ensuring trouble-free operation.

Wheels and Tyres

High-quality dBoots 2-HO tyres, coupled with black multi-spoke wheels, offer high bite on a multitude of surfaces. The multi-spoke wheels feature standard 1/8th scale buggy dimensions with 17mm hex size.

BLX100 100A waterproof ESC

Fitted with a reliable EC5 battery connector and sporting a built-in cooling fan for reduced heat during intense driving action, the BLX100 ESC has over-voltage protection and a two-stage LiPo cut-off for added cell management. The fitted 12AWG high-quality wires and 6.0V 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

BLX 3660 3200kV Brushless Motor

Provides both speed and torque and is perfectly balanced for use with our BLX100 ESC unit and 3S LiPo batteries. A beautifully etched black aluminium motor can provide a premium look, whilst a four-pole internal configuration keeps the power supply smooth and consistent. Gold bullet connectors allow fast and easy wire removal when you need to clean your vehicle.

ADS-7M Metal Geared Steering Servo

Strong and durable, the waterproof ADS-7M Metal Geared Steering Servo provides fast and reliable control. The ADS-7M has all-metal gears for increased strength and long-lasting durability. The 40mm x 38mm x 20mm case size is industry standard, so the ADS-7M can also be fitted in other RC vehicles. Operating at 6 kg-cm/6.5 kg-cm 6V/7.2V (83oz-inch/90oz-inch), this tough steering servo can reach full articulation in 0.14 sec/0.12 sec 6V/7.2V.

TTX300 2.4Ghz Radio System

The TTX300 radio system offers fast and consistent control for your ARRMA vehicle. Using 2.4Ghz technology, your ARRMA vehicle is controlled by a wheel and trigger style radio transmitter. Ideal for new RC users and experienced bashing fans alike. Adjustable steering and throttle trim will allow you to easily tune your control experience to suit your individual needs.

Waterproof Electronics

Fully waterproof ESC, steering servo and radio receiver box are standard. This means that hitting the roughest terrains, in the most extreme conditions, will be no problem. Rain, mud, snow, dirt and anything else you want to bash your way through.

Ready-to-Run

A high-quality 2.4Ghz radio transmitter and receiver, wheels and high-performance dBoots tyres, waterproof ESC and steering servo and a pre-painted bodyshell are all included, as standard. Please check the vehicle specifications for exact details of what is included in the box and what is required to get your ARRMA vehicle running
