ARRMA 1/5 Kraton 8S BLX Brushless RC Truggy - Orange

The KRATON 8S BLX 4WD Speed Monster Truck stands out for more reasons than its huge 1/5 scale size. It’s built for extreme bashing with ARRMA toughness, 8S capable brushless power, and a telemetry-ready Spektrum SMART radio system, motor and ESC.

Experienced Bashers can shred big-time with the 1/5 scale ARRMA® KRATON™ 8S BLX 4WD Speed Monster Truck. DESIGNED FAST and DESIGNED TOUGH, it’s ready-to-run out of the box and comes with nearly everything you need — just add your preferred batteries and charger. The supplied Spektrum™ DX3 Smart® transmitter and SR6100AT AVC® (Active Vehicle Control®) receiver take full advantage of the innovative telemetry technology found in the included Spektrum™ SMART Firma™ brushless motor and ESC. Download the free Spektrum™ Dashboard App to your mobile device to view motor RPM, ESC temperature, receiver voltage, drive pack voltage and more data in real-time. Dial-in extra stability with the radio’s AVC® system to carve corners and nail jumps without letting up on the throttle. The KRATON 8S BLX 4WD is capable of 55+ MPH speeds in optimum driving conditions using an 8S LiPo (2 x 4S LiPo batteries) and optional pinion gear (available separately). The speed potential is amazing — and you’ll be able to use it all.

Bigger than big and engineered for brute power and toughness, the ARRMA® 1/5 scale KRATON™ 8S BLX 4WD Speed Monster Truck takes your bashing ability to the next level. Its metal-reinforced design lets you blast up, over, and through bruising obstacles without worry. Metal shafts, turnbuckles and outdrives, plus all-metal internal gears, give the drivetrain and suspension system unstoppable strength. The anodized aluminum chassis plate features composite side pods and a triangular center brace for maximum durability. Ultra-thick composite front and rear shock towers hold massive 20mm bore, oil-filled adjustable shocks that soak-up bumps and jolts.

The power that sends the KRATON™ 8S BLX 4WD Speed Monster Truck charging easily over challenging terrain comes from its 1250Kv Spektrum™ Firma™ brushless motor. The torque and acceleration is incredible. For quick access, the motor is mounted with three bolts onto a sliding aluminum mount.

The waterproof electronics module — also designed for easy access — houses and protects more innovative Spektrum™ equipment. ARRMA® has equipped the KRATON™ 8S BLX 4WD Speed Monster Truck with a state-of-the-art Firma™ SMART 160A ESC and SR6100AT AVC® (Active Vehicle Control®) receiver. Innovative connectivity enables all the SMART electronics to send valuable telemetry data to the included Spektrum™ DX3 Smart® transmitter without requiring multiple wires, sensors, modules and links. Just download the free Spektrum™ Dashboard App to your mobile device, which connects wirelessly via Bluetooth to the DX3 transmitter. Then you can view motor RPM, ESC temperature, receiver voltage, drive pack voltage and more data in real-time.

The ultra-tough KRATON™ truck body with high-downforce wing is available factory trimmed, painted and decaled in two striking color schemes. A center protection tower on the chassis interfaces with the roll cage for increased body durability. It all rides on multi-split spoke wheels with strong, durable aluminum wheel hubs, and multi-terrain dBoots® COPPERHEAD™ 2 SB tires with a tread pattern designed for extreme, all-terrain action.

Product Information

This is the one that puts the monster into monster truck. To put it bluntly the Arrma Kraton 8S 1/5th BLX RTR is a beast! This fifth scale RC monster truck can literally mow down anything in its path and if the look on the faces of the two guys from the office who took it out to shoot a promotional video with it is anything to go by this Kraton has some serious credibility. Fast and tough were the two key specifications in the design brief for the Arrma Kraton 8S 1/5th BLX RTR and it shows. This 4WD 1/5th scale juggernaut will hit 80+kmh without breaking a sweat. Powered by 2 x 4S LiPo’s for 8S capacity and with optimal driving conditions you can also push it a little faster. But its not all about speed. Just looking at the Arrma Kraton 8S 1/5th BLX RTR you know it’s built to thrive on rough terrain.

Arrma Kraton 1/5 scale

With metal reinforced design throughout this RC monster truck you can be confident that the structural integrity of the body and parts is going to hold under extreme driving pressure. Built with all-metal internal gears and metal turnbuckles, outdrives and shafts translates to a drivetrain and suspension system that make this one of the toughest 1/5th scale RC trucks going around. A triangular centre brace and hardened composite side pods are just some of the features on the strengthened anodized aluminium chassis plate. Knowing the punishment that you guys are going to put this thing through Arrma have fitted it out with massively thick front and rear shock towers to support the enormous 20mm bore oil-filled shocks.

Powering this beast is Spektrum’s 1250Kv Firma brushless motor which has been mounted onto a sliding aluminium mount with three bolts to give you quick access.   The electronics supporting the motor on the Arrma Kraton 8S 1/5th BLX RTR are contained in an easily accessible waterproof module. Protected inside this module are Spektrum’s SMART electronics starting with the 160A ESC and the SR6100AT receiver that has Active Vehicle Control (AVC) functionality enabled. Connectivity and data analysis has never been easier and all it takes is downloading the Spektrum Dashboard App which will display valuable real-time telemetry readouts on ESC temperature, receiver and drive pack voltage levels, motor RPM and more. The Dashboard App will connect wirelessly via Bluetooth from your mobile device to the DX2E Spektrum transmitter without the need for multiple modules, sensors wires and links.

The Arrma Kraton 8S 1/5th BLX RTR is available in two unmistakable colour schemes of green or orange and are fitted with a high-downforce wing to keep you grounded when you have it pinned. For increased body durability Arrma have included a centre protection tower on the chassis and integrated it with the roll cage for added strength. Where the rubber hits the road you’ll find COPPERHEAD 2 SB tyres from dBoots that are fitted to multi-split spoke wheels with strengthened aluminium wheel hubs. You will need to supply your own batteries and charger but once that bind happens this dog is going to get off the chain.
