The Typhon 6S BLX features a completely new design body, paint scheme and decals.The new design body on the Typhon 6S BLX has six open vents along the rear section. These encourage air-flow within the body, keeping the electronics running cool when the action heats up. Super-detailed decals are pre-applied to the high-quality body shell. The TYPHON 6S BLX looks awesome from any angle. A new design rear wing provides the stability required to pilot the Typhon 6S BLX at 60+mph speeds, no matter what the terrain.
Wheels and Tires
Aggressive and hard-wearing dBoots all-terrain tires are mounted on strong black nylon wheels, giving you the traction you need to put the ARRMA Typhon 6S BLX 2018 BLX brushless power straight onto your chosen surface. 17mm wheel hex fittings allow the use of a wide range of third party wheel and tire combinations.
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. Heavy-duty 4mm steel shock shafts take big-hits in their stride and offer super-durable performance.
The included BLX185 150A waterproof ESC provides consistent power control and is 6S LiPo ready. Fitted with 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.
The BLX 2050kV brushless motor provides speed and torque and is perfectly balanced for use with our BLX185 ESC unit. A beautifully etched black aluminum motor can provides 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. The aluminum motor can provides increased heat dissipation from the finned body section. A dual motor shaft flat section provides safe and secure pinion gear fit.
The Typhon 6S BLX 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.
The ARRMA Typhon 6S BLX 2018 features an all-new radio box design. ESC and servo wires now pass through a foam seal that slides into the side of the radio box, meaning that these wires stay in place when the lid is removed. There is a continuous rubber seal between the radio box base and the lid, protecting the receiver from the elements. The radio box also has increased internal volume, allowing more room to fit after market receivers.
The ADS-15M steering servo benefits from metal gears and is fully waterproof. To provide fast and consistent steering response, the ADS-15M has 208oz-inch (15kg-cm) of torque at 7.2v. At 1.6 x 0.8 x 1.5″ (41 x 20 x 38mm) in size, this high-power steering servo is compact and highly capable.
