ARRMA® engineers have updated the TYPHON™ 6S BLX 4WD Speed Buggy with a brushless power system featuring the Spektrum™ Firma™ 150A Smart ESC and Firma™ 2050Kv brushless motor. The combination lets you cut loose with incredible torque, acceleration and speed, while the heavy-duty aluminum and steel chassis and transmission components take it all in its stride. For improved steering, ARRMA® also includes a new, steel gear Spektrum™ S652 Digital Servo — which is 32% stronger and 5% faster than the previous version's ADS-15M servo.

The ready-to-run package now also includes a 3-channel Spektrum™ SLT3™ radio and Spektrum™ SR315 dual protocol receiver. Perfect for long hours of fatigue-free bashing, the transmitter's ergonomic design features a foam steering wheel for precise fingertip control and an improved hand grip and trigger feel. If you're a new driver, you'll be able to set throttle limits at 50% or 75% until you're ready to use the full speed potential. The SLT3™ is compatible with Tactic® SLT™ receivers to run other RTR vehicles you may own, and includes a third channel to control optional features such as lights and winches on models that have them.

Because the SR315 receiver can use SLT™ and DSMR® protocols, you can easily upgrade to a Spektrum™ DSMR® transmitter later — then, download the free Spektrum™ Dashboard™ app for your mobile device and take full advantage of the Smart telemetry capabilities already present in the Firma™ electronics. You'll be able to receive real-time updates of ESC temperature, receiver (BEC) voltage, drive pack voltage and motor RPM.

The TYPHON™ 6S BLX 4WD Speed Buggy blasts over dirt, asphalt and grass, with adjustable oil-filled shocks soaking up the bumps. The shocks are mounted on black-anodized aluminum towers and include aluminum shock caps and protectors to maintain their super-smooth damping.

For the durability needed to support intense brushless performance, ARRMA® uses a strengthened, anodized aluminum chassis as its foundation. Front and rear composite chassis braces and composite chassis side pods add more toughness. All-metal diff outdrives and gearbox internals, plus durable steel driveshafts, all contribute to a reliable, heavy-duty drivetrain that holds up to extreme bashing. A "never loose" aluminum steering servo saver and "never pop" ball ends supply more precision, reliability and confidence.

ARRMA® holds your maintenance downtime to the minimum with an efficient, driver-friendly design. A sliding mount gives you quick, hassle-free access to the motor. The center diff is easy to reach and can be removed by taking out just four bolts.

The low-drag buggy wheels, now with +1mm hexes, arrive outfitted with super-aggressive, multi-surface dBoots® KATAR™ tires. A low-drag wing helps keep the vehicle grounded. Both contribute to confident control and responsive handling at thrilling high speeds. Topping it all off is a sleek buggy body with streamlined good looks, featuring a matte black and red paint scheme with forged composite detail.


Designed fast and designed tough, the ARRMA® TYPHON™ 6S BLX 4WD RTR Speed Buggy is now equipped to deliver even bigger and better 1/8 scale bashing thrills — with a Spektrum™ SLT3™ radio, dual protocol receiver, Smart ESC, stronger servo and more.

Firstly, great customer service from these guys. I had a small issue out of the box regarding this Arrma Typhon 6S. They sorted it straight away once i formed them of the issue (issue from assembly line, not wheelspin) Now the car, all I can say at the moment is wow, it flipping moves! I bought some upgraded ProLine wheels and tyres for this bad boy. It handles really well, it's very very fast. I've only run it on 4S, it is quite hard to find a 6S hardcase lipo battery to fit it to be honest and two 3S batteries won't let you put the body on properly. Two 2S batteries or a 4S fit fine. It's quite heavy, really well built. I love Arrma vehicles, they can take a beating and still keep going, easy to work on too. I have the 3S version too and these two cars are worlds apart. Perfect for anyone looking for an out of the box ready to race and built unit. I would recommend getting the rpm bumper fitted to the front, upgrade the tyres (ProLine badlands are a really worthwhile investment) This car was bought using the finance option, really easy to sort out and the car was dispatched the very same day. (small charge for next day delivery via dpd) Car arrived well packaged, with the extras I had also ordered too. Found an issue and contacted wheelspin and it was very quickly resolved to my satisfaction. As with anything, check it over when you receive it. Sometimes Arrma cars have loose screws on the chassis etc when sent out of the factory . Better safe and sorry. Also double check the esu fan is plugged in, mine wasn't and was a simple fix but could of been costly if it had overheated. (again not wheelspin fault, just a simple oversight from the factory) I'm very happy with this car, its become one of my favourite out of all my Arrmas. Highy recommended buggy, highly recommended company (wheelspin) to purchase from. Attention to detail and great customer service both on the phone and via email was faultless.

What size is the battery tray and isit better to use a single 6s or 2 3s thanks
Asked by Bradley on 1st November 2021

We always use 2x 3s batteries we find its more cost effective.

Answered by: Anthony @ Wheelspin Models

Can you fit two 3s batteries in at once and how do you connect them both ?
Asked by Mark Johnson on 22nd November 2021

Yes you can use 2x 3s lipos the car has 2 connectors from the ESC for 2 batteries to connect too.
