GRANITE CREW

ARRMA fans demand strength and speed, no matter what bashing challenges they choose to attack. With a global following that grows week-on-week, the GRANITE 4×4 has taken the award-winning heritage DNA of the first edition 2WD GRANITE, then smacked a heap of awesome ARRMA 4WD enhancements on top. Fans of the GRANITE 4×4 platform enjoy the short wheelbase agility, teamed with the raw four-to-the-floor power delivery of this thoroughbred 1/10 blasting machine. Available in two power variants, from the torque heavy brushed MEGA, to the speed thrashing 3S BLX brushless, the GRANITE 4×4 is one mean monster.

When it comes to backyard dirt ripping fun for all the family, the GRANITE 4×4 design is perfectly suited to younger bashing fanatics and seasoned experts alike. Shaft-driven four wheel drive, teamed with a perfectly balanced gear differential set up, allow for more throttle action than you could imagine was possible from such a compact vehicle. Chunky tyres and oil-filled shock absorbers allow the roughest terrain to be easily navigated, meaning you can throw down moves like a Monster Truck Pro, straight from the kit box.

Check out these cool shots, which represent just a small sample of the GRANITE 4×4 owners crew. We can guarantee you will be already working out exactly what you can throw at this beast, giving you and the family a perfect opportunity to share more time together, whilst honing some GRANITE 4X4 blasting skills at the same time.

SLAMMED FOR ACTION

Street and parking lot blasting action has become a major part of the ARRMA bashing culture. With thousands of dedicated speed run fans hitting the asphalt every week, it’s time to take a look at the beautiful creations they choose to deploy, when all-out speed is the main agenda.

Low-profile street-ready wheels and tires are a popular optional addition, when smooth bashing surfaces are the chosen playground.

The TYPHON 6S and TALION 6S are popular choices, with stealthy black body shell paint being a great look, when ARRMA owners want to stay under the radar during street blasting sessions.

ARRMA fans know that just because the surface may be flat during high speed concrete sessions, it doesn’t mean that the standard specification waterproof electronics are not required. Hitting standing water is a hazard that ARRMA fans are confident they are ready to overcome.

Stock ARRMA diff and shock set ups are beautifully balanced, meaning fans of responsive handling can always rely on fast and agile transmitter responses, when they hammer the throttle. A few simple shock position adjustments allow higher or lower ride height settings to be achieved, which easily soaks up whatever the local mall parking lot has to offer.

The trend of stretching the TYPHON 6S Speed Buggy, by fitting a TALION chassis plate, is a guaranteed way to add even more straight line stability, allowing ballistic top speed to be balanced and controlled. The longer the wheelbase, the easier the street ripping BLX power is handled when shooting straight for the horizon.

Low and mean are the popular themes for ARRMA fans who choose to add a custom look, when they are attacking a street battle. Custom painted optional body shells bring a huge opportunity for bragging rights, meaning street blasting sessions are packed full of chances to style it out like a true speed King.

No matter how ARRMA fans choose to push the limits on hard surfaces, it is certain that this pulse-racing culture is here to stay. BLX brushless power is the perfect gateway to your own personal best speed run. Just hold on tight and have fun.

Four Wheel Motion

When you hit the bash spot with friends and family, harnessing rugged strength against the roughest challenges is easy with these super-durable RC machines. Laying down the incredible 3S LiPo capable power, through a reliable 4×4 drivetrain, keeps the action controlled and agile, no matter what terrain you choose to attack.

The dirt and mud will rooster easily, as the equipped dBoots tires make easy work of every bump and jump you hit. Switching to high speed asphalt thrashing requires no adjustments, as both vehicles are equipped with tough  differential units, helping distribute the awesome BLX power, every time you pull the trigger.

Why feel confined to your backyard when you want to enjoy ARRMA RC action? The SENTON and GRANITE 4×4 BLX are the perfect choice if you are planning to step up from brushed 2WD vehicles, allowing you to learn faster, bounce back from some of the hardest knocks and challenge new environments, as you build confidence and skill.

When it’s time to clean and maintain your ARRMA 4×4 BLX bashing machine, fast and simple single screw power module removal will put you back into the action faster, encouraging you to stay on top of pre-blasting checks. Easy and hassle-free, straight from the kit box.

Soaking up whatever you can throw at these dirt-ripping siblings is taken care of by oil-filled shocks, with perfectly balanced multi-purpose springs and threaded adjustable bodies. You can easily land like a stunt expert and thrash across rubble, gravel and debris without missing a beat.

Blast Control

Power and Handling

Injecting huge power into RC bashing vehicles is useless if the beast can not handle the brawn. ARRMA blasting machines are now famous for not just looking perfectly balanced, but also being capable of channeling the epic BLX brushless power into real-time pulse-racing performance.

The ARRMA design and engineering team intimately understand the importance of balance. From our aggressive metal geared steering sevo units for exact steering adjustment, to our oil-filled diffs for superior traction, the power is distributed in the most effective manner possible, every time you pull the throttle.

One of the toughest challenges when we design fast and tough RC cars that are perfectly balanced, is designing enough freedom for our dedicated fans to customize their vehicles, without compromising fluid handling when the action is extreme. The ARRMA engineering team are RC fans first, with the huge added benefit of being Motorsport experts. This combination brings the very best balance of raw power and sublime handling on a wide range of surface conditions. We know what it takes to perform at the very peak.

It doesn’t matter if you decide to test our drivetrain systems by going all-out at high speed street runs, or even attack the local beach for some controlled power drifting, ARRMA machines are balanced by design.

If you choose to bolt on aftetmataft parts for that awesome custom look, rest assured the chassis and suspension set up on your ARRMA vehicle have been designed to always balance your adventures, giving you confidence to push harder and harder.

ARRMA Fans Push Harder

With the desire for faster RC performance never before being in such demand, ARRMA owners know what it takes to blast beyond previous speed limits and set new records, trusting ARRMA design to put them at the top of the speed challenge game.

FB_IMG_1487315155275

Your local parking lot or closed asphalt runway are the perfect location to throw down a speed challenge with bashing friends, knowing that your ARRMA rig has what it takes to drop jaws in a straight-up drag race.

FB_IMG_1487536917327

Many ARRMA owners are already custom tuning their bashing machines to be even faster speed rigs, fitting slick road rubber, low-profile rims and slamming the ride height to cut through the air with even greater efficiency. Teamed with our super-fast brushless BLX power systems, that are capable of running high power LiPo battery cells, reaching eye-watering speeds can be effortless, if you have the nerve to hang in tight.

FB_IMG_1482907908470

Running stock configuration is a sure way to become comfortable with blistering power, allowing you to hit speeds in excess of 60mph, with adjusted gearing, which we often supply in the form of a special designed speed pinion gear. For the more advanced adrenaline junky, transforming your TYPHON, SENTON, or RAIDER XL into a mean drag machine can become a passion in itself.
