Immense from whichever angle you look at it. The OUTCAST 8S BLX is an all-new model from ARRMA. Every component has been designed super-sized and ARRMA tough.
Even stood still the vast footprint, aggressive styling and monster sized components give the OUTCAST 8S BLX an intimidating presence.
Ultra-detailed light, grille and window decals add to the authentic realism of the OUTCAST 8S BLX Speed Monster Truck.
The body retention system features body clip retainers that tether the body clip to the body. Also featured are molded composite platforms that sit between the body and body clip, spreading the load from the body clip to protect the body in this area. These molded composite platforms rise up and protect the body post from wear.
The OUTCAST 8S BLX features a tough wheelie bar to help keep control when the front end is in the sky.
The wheelie bar wheels have rubber tires for extra grip as well as ball bearings keep them spinning as fast as you can go.
The OUTCAST 8S BLX body roll cage adds strength and structure. It fixes to a frame on the underside of the body which locates to the center tower. The force of upside-down impacts is distributed between the body, frame and chassis.
The top of the frame and roof rails feature sacrificial screws which are designed to be wear items and take the brunt of any punishment when roof-sliding on asphalt.
The double hex of the screws allows you to remove them from the inner side when they need replacing.
The OUTCAST 8S BLX rear wing adds downforce at speed, increasing stability.
The rear wing also features double hex sacrificial screws that are designed take the brunt of the punishment when sliding upside-down on asphalt, reducing wear on the composite wing.
The backbone of the OUTCAST 8S BLX comprises a 4mm thick 6061-T6 aluminum chassis plate, which is beautifully etched with ARRMA branding.
dBoots BACKFLIP tires offer ground-ripping traction to transfer the huge torque of the 8S power system onto your chosen surface. The tires are attached to tough composite multi split-spoke wheels that have steel reinforced 24mm hex hubs for ultimate durability.
The OUTCAST 8S BLX has two extremely generous battery trays. These are adjustable in length and have two self-adjusting hook-and-loop straps to hold the batteries. Each battery tray has the capacity to accommodate batteries up to 6.69 x 2.16 x 2.08 inches (170 x 55 x 53mm).
Wire guides are integrated into the battery strap buckles to secure battery wires safely away from rotating transmission parts.
Strong independent suspension systems are utilized front and rear. Independent suspension offers the very best off-road handling characteristics. At the heart of the suspension are huge red anodized aluminum coil-over-oil shock absorbers with 24mm diameter shock bodies.
A big bumper also helps protect the front of the car and bodyshell for the times you push the limits a little too hard.
For ease of maintenance the motor on the OUTCAST 8S BLX can be detached by removing just three screws. The vehicle features a black anodized aluminum motor heatsink and a massive 50mm motor cooling fan.
The ESC, receiver and servo are mounted together to form a single electronics module. For fast and efficient servicing this module can be detached from the vehicle by removing only five screws.
Front and rear differentials can be quickly accessed for tuning and maintenance.
The front suspension features 18mm pivot balls that provide silky-smooth suspension and steering articulation. The front hubs have molded-in steel reinforcement for ultimate durability.
The OUTCAST 8S BLX features strong steel adjustable turnbuckles and tough composite gearbox moldings. Durable steel CVD drive shafts are used throughout.
The rear lower chassis brace is included for additional ARRMA tough durability.
Twin aluminum braces at the front and rear of the vehicle add structure between the shock towers and center tower.
This ultra-durable molded center tower locates with the body support frame which is mounted to the roll cage.
A tough, molded composite body support frame, on the underside of the bed of the body, bolts through to the body roll-cage on the top of the bed. Impact forces from upside-down action are spread between the body, roll cage, support frame and chassis protecting the body from the full brunt of any impact.
For ultimate strength in key areas the front and rear gearboxes, steering knuckles and differential cases feature strong steel reinforcement inserts that are over-molded with a tough composite material.
The 'Safe-D5' pinions on the 8S BLX models features 'D' shaped hole. This 'D' shaped hole, combined with the pinion retaining E-Clip on the end of the motor shaft, ensures you do not loose forward drive or braking force should the pinion set screw back-out.
The sliding motor mount is secured by three screws. Two are accessed from above and one is accessed from below. The center gearbox features a full steel drivetrain for ultimate durability.
The oil-filled center differential assembly is constructed of tough steel and lightweight machined aluminum. A huge 53 tooth steel gear locates on to the red anodized aluminum diff case. Full steel differential internal gears and steel outdrives transmit the awesome 8S power to the front and rear gearboxes.
Oil-filled front and rear differentials have huge spiral-cut differential main gears to handle the massive power of the 8S brushless system. Full steel differential internals and steel outdrives are deployed for maximum durability.
The included Spektrum FIRMA SMART 160A waterproof ESC provides smooth power control and is 8S LiPo ready.
Fitted with reliable IC5 connectors, quality 10AWG wire and sporting a built-in cooling fan to reduce heat during intense bashing action, the Spektrum FIRMA SMART ESC has over-voltage protection and a two-stage LiPo cut off for added cell management.
Smart, all-in-one telemetry and a fast 32-bit processor combine with adjustable high-power BEC to provide the ultimate driving experience.
The Spektrum 4685 1250Kv brushless motor supplies huge speed and torque and is perfectly balanced for use with the Spektrum FIRMA SMART 160A 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.
Huge 6.5mm gold bullet connectors allow fast and easy wire removal when you need to clean your truck.
The aluminum motor can offers increased heat dissipation.
An E-Clip groove at the end of the 5mm motor shaft allows the installation of an E-Clip that will retain the pinion on the motor shaft should the set screw loosen.
The Spektrum S905 steering servo benefits from metal gears and is fully waterproof.
To provide fast and consistent steering response, the S905 servo has a huge 528oz-inch (38kg-cm) of torque at 6.0v with an operating speed of 0.20sec/60° at 6.0V.
At 2.36 x 1.14 x 2.17" (60 x 29 x 55mm) in size, this high-power steering servo is built tough for 1/5 scale vehicles.
Take control with the included Spektrum DX3 transmitter. This transmitter is built around frequency-agile, DSMR 2.4GHz technology.
Teamed with the SR6110AT receiver you get stability control of AVC™ (Active Vehicle Control) technology in your vehicle. AVC technology creates a more enjoyable driving experience by managing the vehicle's driving characteristics and attitude.
For more information on the features of the DX3 please see the Spektrum website:
