Spektrum Speed and Smart Control
The increased speed and control in this ARRMA® 1/8th KRATON® 6S EXB Speed Monster Truck come from the updated Spektrum brushless power system and radio. An efficient 2050Kv Spektrum Firma brushless motor is paired with a 150A Spektrum Firma Smart V2 ESC equipped with IC5 connectors to give you more throttle response and a better feel for the vehicle. There is a speed pinion that you have the option of installing that will allow your ARRMA® 1/8th KRATON® 6S EXB Speed Monster Truck to hit speeds of 104+ km/h! Maintaining steering control at such high speeds is made easier with the robust S665 Spektrum steel gear servo that now comes with 11% more torque than its predecessor. Greater activation torque is achieved with the installation of a redesigned sliding servo servo saver that also reduces play. The result is brilliant driving feedback and precise control.
Giving you uncompromising traction are robust dBoots COPPERHEAD 2 big block tyres fitted to multi-spoke wheels with durable hubs. Plush oil-filled shocks have been improved to help soak up the bumps. Completing the look is an aggressive EXB colour scheme with incredible monster truck scale detail along with a high downforce wing fitted to a redesigned wing mount.
The ARRMA® 1/8th KRATON® 6S EXB Speed Monster Truck RTR package includes a DX3 Spektrum Smart transmitter and SR6200A Active Vehicle Control (AVC) receiver that, when combined, allow the driver to utilise the Smart electronics telemetry capabilities on your first drive. If you download to your mobile device the free Spektrum Dashboard App you can follow ESC temperature, receiver voltage, motor RPM, drive pack voltage and more data in real-time. You can adjust your transmitter's AVC system to give extra stability so you can handle jumps and corners without unpinning the throttle. Given all its features and capabilities this ARRMA® 1/8th KRATON® 6S EXB Speed Monster Truck represents not only a mean and massive bashing juggernaut but one of the best value ARRMA monster truck bashers to date!
