Start Bashing With the Best!

It takes just one remote control stadium truck to make the journey from first-time brushed RC bashing to amplified brushless racing action, and that’s the ARRMA VORTEKS 4X2 BOOST 550 MEGA Brushed 2WD. It may be low-priced, ready-to-run, and easy to drive, but the ARRMA VORTEKS 4X2 BOOST has also been engineered faster and tougher to outlast other beginner-level bashers. Underneath the aggressive 1/10 scale RC stadium truck body, it’s got the brushed motor muscle to reach 30 mph or more under optimum conditions. Escape from the everyday to live your fast racing fantasies on almost any terrain, including off-road, dirt, grass, parking lots, paved and asphalt surfaces. Maintenance and repairs are quick and easy with the innovative ARRMA modular chassis. The Spektrum radio lets you limit the throttle to 50% or 75% of its top potential until you’re comfortable racing at full speed. Only a 7C NiMH or 2S LiPo battery and compatible charger are required. The brushless-ready design of the ARRMA VORTEKS 4X2 BOOST also lays the perfect foundation for your next steps. Upgrade to 3S brushless power and install the ARRMA 4X4 BOOST Transmission Upgrade Set (ARA210003, sold separately) for extreme speeds and unstoppable 4WD traction!

SIGNATURE EASY-ACCESS MODULAR DESIGN

The 1/10 scale VORTEKS 4X2 BOOST 550 MEGA Brushed 2WD stadium truck incorporates the signature ARRMA easy-access modular design. Separate, easily removable chassis modules for the power system, electronics, and differential components make routine maintenance fast and simple.

 

STRONG COMPOSITE CHASSIS
STRONG COMPOSITE CHASSIS

Contributing to the VORTEKS 4X2 BOOST stadium truck's unstoppable performance are a strong composite chassis; steering with more clearance for stones; a castellated slipper pad and sliding gear mesh; and rubber-shielded bearings throughout. Extended height dirt defenders limit the amount of dirt and debris that can get into the chassis tub.
