Overview

Blast into huge, high-speed RC buggy action with the 1/8 scale, ready-to-run ARRMA TYPHON 4X4 MEGA 550 Speed Buggy. This fast RC buggy from the ARRMA design team arrives equipped straight out of the box for amplified speeds and extreme, all-terrain durability. The ARRMA TYPHON 4X4 MEGA 550 is more than just basher tough. Precision aluminum, durable steel and composite materials come together in a faster, tougher ARRMA RC buggy design that has a huge arsenal of advantages — such as a full-time 4WD transmission, low center of gravity, wide arms, high downforce wing, and narrow wheels and tires — for sending it down race tracks, trails, muddy courses, skate parks and more with complete confidence. If you’re a first time remote control buggy basher, the included 3-channel Spektrum transmitter lets you set throttle limits at 50% or 75% until you’re ready to unleash the full speed potential. The ARRMA team also simplifies adjustments and maintenance with an innovative modular chassis that puts every component in fast, easy reach. Tuning your RC buggy for top performance on any track has never been so simple. No matter where you bash the ARRMA TYPHON 4X4 MEGA 550, its high chassis sides, close-fitting body, and rugged front and rear bumpers mount an impressive defense against dirt, debris, and impact damage. The supplied 7C NiMH battery offers plenty of power and run time, but you can also drop in a 2S LiPo and experience even greater extremes of RC buggy fun!
