Fresh bashing machines blast into action

Happy New Year ARRMA crew. With the seasonal festivities done and dusted, we want to take the opportunity to share some images from the awesome new ARRMA owners who joined our growing ranks during the holiday.

It has been really inspirational to see such a diverse mix of ARRMA vehicles rolling up at the homes of excited fans. From our super-tough and hassle-free 1/10 scale 2WD range, to the newly launched stunt truck beast, the OUTCAST 6S BLX.

Taking control of these shiny new all-terrain vehicles is only the start of the journey, with one-off customization being hugely popular with first time owners and experienced ARRMA Pros alike.

Sharing their new ARRMA rigs has been made easy with our dedicated Hall of Fame web pages, meaning new owners can be instantly catapulted into bashing stardom. What better way to join the fastest growing RC family across the globe?

The more we see our creations bringing high-velocity all-condition action to young and old fans, the more we are driven to continue developing new and exciting products.

ARRMA Fleet – Why own just one?

FB_IMG_1468442536760

Bashing Garage – Ready for anything

ARRMA fans are proving to be a dedicated bunch, with people owning multiple super-tough bashing machines becoming more common every week.

We like seeing who owns which configuration, with a diverse range of products available for ARRMA fans to build the air own custom fleet, meaning they are ready for any environment.

FB_IMG_1468994685156

Choosing a vehicle from our powerful 1/8 BLX Brushless powered range as the centre piece, many ARRMA fans find it useful to also own a selected 1/10 MEGA Brushed rig, like the RAIDER Desert Buggy or GRANITE Monster Truck. This gives them the perfect opportunity to get their family and friends into the RC action, with a slightly calmer and more educational experience.

FB_IMG_1468302229979

Many owners opt for double the 6S LiPo power by selecting two larger more aggressive beasts, often with the all-new NERO 6S taking pride of place in their growing collection.

FB_IMG_1468138713275

However our bashing fans choose to enjoy ARRMA, we are always excited to see growing collections, each one as unique as the person who works hard to create them.

ARRMA Radio Control – Blasting Action, Extreme Motorsport

RC Veteran Enjoys ARRMA Bashing Machines

Devoted RC fan, Frank Ramsperger from Karlsruhe, Germany, has been in touch to share some awesome photos of his ARRMA KRATON 6S and VORTEKS BLX vehicles.

Frank has been enjoying the world of radio control for 20 years, with his focus recently changing to bashing with ARRMA products, after many years racing 1/5 scale Touring Cars.

34

Primed for blasting through the dirt and gravel

Frank was really excited when he first took delivery of the VORTEKS 2WD Stadium Truck, as he had seen plenty of awesome bashing videos featuring our super-tough 1/10 scale 2WD range.

Opting for the BLX brushless version of this exciting vehicle, Frank was keen to share his thoughts on the VORTEKS – “I had seen lots of videos and pictures featuring the ARRMA machines, and was impressed immediately. I purchased the VORTEKS BLX. What a small powerful model!”

 

22

Stepping up his game – Frank chose the KRATON 6S 

It wasn’t long before Frank was addicted to ARRMA bashing, fueling his desire to go bigger, badder, and faster. Frank has chosen the KRATON 6S 1/8 scale 4WD Speed Monster as his next addition to the expanding fleet.

Frank was quick to point out that his vast experience in the racing classes of the radio control sport has equipped him with a discerning taste for high-quality gear, something which was easily met with the VORTEKS and KRATON.

Frank is loving blasting awesome brushless power at a local bashing spot, which throws up a mixed challenge of grass, gravel and sand.

35

Dual threat – Frank loves ARRMA speed and durability

Choosing to support a range of local model stores, whilst also using some online retailers to purchase his ARRMA products, Frank is excited to continue customizing his ARRMA bashing machines, pushing for even more power and fresh new looks. We cannot wait to see what this seasoned RC Pro decides to create.

We send our sincere thanks to Frank for sharing this cool story.

ARRMA owners know what it takes to rip up varied terrains and enjoy awesome RC speed.

Shock Building Tricks – Super-Smooth Results

OD0B5915-EditSHOCK

Learn new skills – Servicing shocks like a Pro

If you love extreme multi-terrain bashing, then you will understand the importance of a super-plush shock set-up.

ARRMA cars are factory built with mega-slick shock configurations, helping each bashing machine soak up a wide variety of terrains, keeping your action smooth and controlled.

As part of your regular maintenance regime, servicing your shocks is an essential part of this regular upkeep. Knowing exactly how to get the best from your oil-filled shock absorbers can be a complicated business.

2014_Shock

Knowing what is inside each shock unit will prove invaluable 

Bashing Pro and ARRMA expert, Thomas Pettersson, has created an awesome guide to servicing our aluminum body shocks, used on our 1/8 scale range of vehicles, and also supplied on the 1/10 Super-Duty SENTON 6S Short Course truck.

These basic principles can be used when working on all ARRMA shocks, 1/8 or 1/10 scale configurations.

Blast into the dark with your own custom light rig

Why stop bashing when the sun goes down?

Many ARRMA owners are rolling out their bashing machines with nice custom light rigs fitted. We have seen lots of variations to the headlight and taillight set-ups, each one unique in its own way.

Roof, hood or side skirts, anything goes

Whether you are looking for that classic snow patrol scale profile, or you want to rip up the local parking lot late at night like an authentic street racer, blazing a trail into the darkness is easy with ARRMA vehicles.

12274718_981615168576869_5449903558512535694_n

Mounting your custom lights is all part of the fun

ARRMA vehicles are really designed as a modified RC fans dream project. With easily customized body shell designs, it is simple to see why so many bashers choose to fit some exotic lighting systems to their ARRMA vehicles.

This video is a perfect example of some great family fun with the KRATON 6S, as it nails multiple back flip landings. Watch out for the double at the end! – http://www.arrma-rc.com/tv/channel/kraton/d9Qgv176Z_A
