ARRMA® has taken its 4X4 3S BLX speed bashing platform to the next level with the VORTEKS™ Stadium Truck. This is the fastest and most technically advanced 1/10 scale 4X4 vehicle in the ARRMA® lineup, and it is engineered to deliver astonishing speed, control and durability.
The ARRMA® VORTEKS™ 4X4 3S BLX Stadium Truck RTR represents the highest level of speed and technology found yet in the proven tough ARRMA® 4X4 platform. If you’re a basher who wants the best it’s all right here.
With the installed, 2S or 3S compatible Spektrum™ Firma™ 3200Kv brushless motor, the VORTEKS™ is fast right out of the box. Using a 3S LiPo battery and an optional pinion gear, it easily becomes the first ARRMA® 4X4 3S BLX model capable of 60 mph and more!
ARRMA® adds the security of advanced Spektrum™ electronics to the VORTEKS™ Stadium Truck’s speed and toughness to create a totally exhilarating bashing experience. With its included DX3 DSMR® 2.4GHz radio system, SR6200A receiver and Firma™ 100A ESC, this is the first ARRMA® 1/10 scale 4X4 model to provide the benefits of AVC® (Active Vehicle Control®) and Smart technology straight out of the box.
The VORTEKS™ 4X4 3S BLX includes a sleek, new stadium truck body with tough, injection-molded wing and protective roof skids. The VORTEKS™ 4X4 3S BLX is offered in three striking color schemes with highly detailed decals pre-applied to the beautifully detailed bodyshell.
The proven tough ARRMA® 4X4 platform lets you bash at high speeds in almost any environment — off-road, on dirt and grass, on parking lots and over paved and asphalt surfaces.
Low profile shock towers and shorter shock absorbers combined with a sleek low body to give the VORTEKS™ 4X4 3S BLX an aerodynamic advantage when it comes to bashing at high speeds, helping this vehicle to blast to 60 mph and beyond.
Featuring full-time four-wheel-drive, the VORTEKS™ 4x4 3S BLX is ready to blast through your chosen environment. Telescopic driveshafts in the front, rear and centerline transmit drive from the slipper clutch to each wheel.
High-strength hook-and-loop straps are used to keep your batteries in place, whatever the action entails. High-sides on the molded composite bathtub chassis ensure that the amount of dirt and debris entering the chassis is kept to a minimum.
To protect that awesome Stadium Truck body the VORTEKS™ 4x4 3S BLX has been fitted with roof protection skid rails that reduce wear on the roof of the body when things get upside-down.
A wide front bumper offers protection to the front of the body and the front shock absorbers enabling you to send it large with confidence.
A low-drag rear wing mounted directly to the bodyshell provides the stability required to pilot the VORTEKS™ 4X4 3S BLX at 60+mph speeds, no matter what the terrain. The wing is mounted at four points and uses under-body support plates to add durability in this area. Sacrificial screws mounted in the rear corners of the wing add wear protection in this area.
With awesome power from the Spektrum™ Firma™ 3200Kv brushless motor and superb traction from the vented dBoots® Katar™ tires, the VORTEKS™ 4X4 3S BLX does wheelies for fun. To try and tame the beast ARRMA have installed a wheelie bar as standard. The wheelie bar wheels feature rubber tire tread.
High quality vented dBoots® Katar™ tires, coupled with tough gun-metal color wheels, offer assured stability at 60+mph speeds on a multitude of surfaces.
The Katar™ tread pattern is designed for ultimate forward traction, propelling the VORTEKS™ 4X4 3S BLX to incredible speeds.
The dual bell crank steering has been redesigned with extra clearance to prevent stones or debris jamming the steering mechanism during your bashing session.
Easy-access Power Module assembly can be removed from the vehicle in seconds, with the removal of just one single screw. The center shaft assembly is telescopic to assist with easy disassembly and it is sprung-loaded to ensure it stays in position during use.
With the Power Module removed from the vehicle the slipper clutch can be accessed with the removal of three screws. The triple pad slipper clutch in the 3S models features a 0.8 module tooth spur gear making it extremely durable in all conditions.
A sliding gear mesh allows you to fine-tune the gearing of your vehicle to your specific requirements and bashing areas.
The 57T 0.8 module spur gear features the proven castellated slipper pads and a plastic locknut for even more tunability and durability.
Easy-access Electronics Module assembly can be removed from the vehicle with the removal of only five screws. The module offers quick and easy access to the servo, electronic speed controller and receiver.
The two-piece molding comprises a lower box and upper lid which are sealed with high-quality rubber seals. The ESC and steering servo are attached to this molding, whilst the receiver sits inside the waterproof box.
Both the front and rear diff modules are easy to access in the VORTEKS™ 4X4 3S BLX, ensuring that you spend more time bashing and less time in the workshop.
Heavy duty tough molded differential and input gears make the vehicle ready for the brutal BLX power.
Steel spline inserts are molded into the input gears for maximum strength and minimum hassle.
These differentials are TOUGH. The main differential gears have been super-sized with large pitch gears that have been designed to withstand huge torques, allowing lightweight composite material to be used for reduced rotating mass without compromising strength.
The differential internals feature silicone O-rings and full-metal, straight-cut gears, ensuring trouble-free operation.
The tough molded composite chassis has been enhanced, adding extra strengthening reinforcement and retained aluminum suspension hangars for maximum durability.
ARRMA has equipped the ready-to-run vehicle with the 3-channel Spektrum™ DX3 radio and an SR2000A receiver featuring AVC (Active Vehicle Control) technology for high-speed stability. A convenient voltage level indicator is built into the transmitter which lets you easily track on-board Smart battery power.
The included Spektrum™ Firma™ 100A ESC provides consistent power control and is 3S LiPo ready.
Fitted with reliable IC5 connectors and sporting a built-in cooling fan for reduced heat during intense driving action, the Spektrum™ Firma™ 100A ESC has over-voltage protection, and a two-stage LiPo cut off for added cell management.
The fitted 12AWG 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 Spektrum™ Firma™ 3200Kv brushless motor delivers both speed and torque and is perfectly balanced for use with the Spektrum™ Firma™ 100A ESC unit and 3S LiPo batteries.
A beautifully etched black aluminum motor can provides a premium look, whilst a four-pole internal configuration keeps the power supply smooth and consistent.
SAFE-D5 Pinions are present and add an extra level of security to your drivetrain.
Gold bullet connectors allow fast and easy wire removal when you need to clean your vehicle.
An aluminum motor heatsink is fitted to the 3660 motor, as standard. The heatsink features large fins and a flat area that has been designed to work with the fan for improved cooling in extreme bash sessions.
Finished in a matte black color, the heatsink is etched with a cool ARRMA logo.
The Spektrum S651 Steering Servo will provide fast and consistent steering response on the most demanding surfaces.
A waterproof servo case will keep your ARRMA vehicle handling correctly, even when the action gets wet.
With 7.27kg (101oz) of torque at 6v, this Spektrum S651 Steering Servo can reach full operating angle in just 0.14 seconds.
IC5 connectors can handle the power required when the action gets furious. They provide a reliable connection between your ESC and your chosen battery packs.
A full complement of high-quality rubber shielded bearings for enhanced protection against the elements. Keeping dirt, water, and dust out and lubrication in means more time bashing and less time wrenching.
