ARRMA Announces New Typhon & Kraton “6S Rated” 1/8 Scale Vehicles

ARRMA Announces New Typhon & Kraton “6S Rated” 1/8 Scale Vehicles

No body-off shots yet, but Arrma’s new 1/8 scale machines certainly look legit, and with Arrma’s claim of 60+mph top speeds, you can expect some serious gear under the lexan. For now, Arrma is touting a 180amp speed control, metal-gear servo with aluminum horn, aluminum motor mounts, and front and rear swaybars for both models. Each gets it’s own motor: a 2250KV for the Kraton, 2300KV for the Typhon. Expect an interesting chassis design, since these are Arrma machines.
