Overview

The new Spektrum STX2 2.4GHz 2-channel radio system provides many of the features found in high-end 2.4GHz radio systems, including throttle and steering reversing, throttle and steering travel adjust, and throttle limiting. The radio system also includes the Spektrum SRX200 2-channel waterproof receiver.

ARRMA® powers the 1/8 TYPHON 4X4 3S BLX with its BLX100 brushless system for incredible torque, acceleration, and speed. This 3S LiPo-capable setup has already proven the speed and toughness of its 3200Kv brushless motor and 100A ESC, now equipped with an IC5™ connector (EC5™ compatible). The transmission and chassis are ruggedly engineered to take full advantage of the electronics' power — in ARRMA tradition, DESIGNED FAST, DESIGNED TOUGH.

The low center of gravity, with wide arms and narrow buggy wheels and tires, improves handling over all of your favorite bashing terrain — race tracks, trails, muddy courses, skate parks, and more. With its metallic-finish body and forged composite detail, the TYPHON 4X4 3S BLX 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!
