Shock Building Tricks – Super-Smooth Results


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.


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.

Lights, Camera, Action – Custom Illumination


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.


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.
