All-Weather Blasting Attack
When you invest in rugged ARRMA bashing machines, you are equipped with the ultimate all-weather beast, ready for the harshest conditions that Mother Nature can dish out.
Snow, ice, sleet, and drifting white winter powder, no sub-zero challenge is too extreme. ARRMA machines are built to attack. With waterproof electronic components and durable composite parts that are destruction tested in extreme conditions, when it’s cold outside, you will stay warm as you rip up your local bash spot like a Pro.
You can rest assured that our design team are experienced at all-weather bashing. Taking our bashing vehicles to the very edge of survival during development has given us a strong idea what you will require when you venture out into the wilderness.
Freezing conditions always provide some unique challenges. Hitting the bash spot and gaining traction is dealt with easily through our super-durable drive trains. You can hammer the throttle and thrash through the slippery conditions with confidence.
When you choose to bash with ARRMA you are taking the fight back to the conditions in style. Don’t allow the cold to stop the action. Trust ARRMA bashing vehicles to put you in control of a true multi-purpose RC weapon.
Ready To Attack
Hitting the bash spot with the knowledge you have a rig that can handle almost any challenge you throw at it, means you will naturally attack wilder environments. ARRMA fans push the boundaries harder than most RC fans, fuelled by the desire to stay rolling, in any situation.
Snow, dirt, mud, grass, rubble, shallow water, ice, asphalt and even sand, no matter what surface you choose to bash, ARRMA vehicles are ready.
Built to lay down epic BLX brushless power, through durable all-terrain tires, ARRMA bashing beasts will allow you to go faster and harder. If you are faced with difficult surface traction, precision metal-geared differential gears help balance the drive, as you hammer the throttle.
If you demand true aggressive bash-ready handling, teamed with the durability and strength that will not let you down, ARRMA vehicles provide all-out blasting satisfaction, from the rock mound to the frozen lake, then beyond.
Big Can Be Better
No matter how you choose to enjoy some exciting RC bashing action, there is a certain charm to commanding rough terrain with a Monster Truck styled ARRMA vehicle. From the sweeping expanses of a sunny beach, to the rugged terrain of an overgrown forest, big tires and built-tough specifications are a winner.
From the all-out dirt chucking power of the Big Rock BLX 6S, to the backyard blasting capabilities of the GRANITE MEGA 4×4, ARRMA Monster Trucks are built to soak up some serious punishment. High-grade composite parts, teamed with super-durable stainless steel components, provide each vehicle with a relentless ability to just keep on rolling, no matter how hard you want to blast. Increased ground clearance puts you high above the rocks and rubble, meaning you can attack bigger obstacles and jump off larger ramps.
Inspired by real-world machines, but enjoyed at a much smaller scale, ARRMA Monster Trucks look good from all angles. Detailed bumper and headlight decals add to scale realism, whilst waterproof power systems and no-holds-barred tire tread patterns take no prisoners when the action gets wild. Body shell styling is always aggressive, with a strong focus on big and tough truck looks.
Taking the fight back to the bashing spot has never been easier when you pilot a Monster Truck blasting rig. ARRMA understand that bigger footprints can often spell bigger action. Take your next bashing crown by choosing one of our Monster Trucks, we can guarantee you will feel our passion for this much-loved style of RC action, from the second you open the box.
Speed X Strength
Speed, durability, rugged performance, breathtaking power. All these terms are instantly recognisable as key elements of ARRMA blasting machines. From our aggressive body shell styling, to our high-powered brushless power systems, every detail of ARRMA stock specification is built for extreme action.
Racing around the local club track is not only fun, it can often be a rare event for an average bashing vehicle. Not so with ARRMA rigs. Each of our platforms are precision engineered for a wide range of applications. This means you can literally jump from the dirt to the winners podium, all with one vehicle.
Ripping up any terrain is easy when you have the weapon to do the job. ARRMA vehicles ooze rugged features, allowing you to bash more and wrench less. When you choose to step up the game plan, aftermarket upgrades are now in abundance, which gives you even more ‘bashability’ for your buck.
Choosing ARRMA is a one-way ticket to the most fun you can have without actually sitting inside a real Monster Truck, Speed Buggy, Short Course Truck, or Desert Buggy. Stay rolling in every environment and focus on harnessing HUGE amounts of speed and strength, straight from the box.
Hitting the bash spot with one ARRMA vehicle is proven to be an exhilarating ride. Imagine the awesome terrain-ripping action that can happen when you are equipped with several fast and tough ARRMA blasting machines?
Running a fleet of several ARRMA beasts has become a popular way for adrenaline junkie bashers to enjoy the rugged strength and terrain thrashing speed of our vehicle’s. With hundreds of cool images being shared through Facebook and Instagram each week, it seems fitting that we give you an insight into those lucky ARRMA owners who possess a full fleet.
Many ARRMA owners take pride in rolling out doubles of their favourite all-terrain rigs, with the TALION 6S and KRATON 6S being a regular choice for dual extreme RC action.
ARRMA know what it takes when it comes to creating the ultimate high-performance bashing weapons. Seeing fans of the ARRMA philosophy, Don’t Just Bash, Blast, enjoying more than one of our vehicles, always inspires us to develop new and exciting products.
One thing is for certain. The lucky RC fans who are able to run multiple ARRMA blasting machines are fully aware, adding more awesome potential to their weekend ripping sessions is made easy when they build a fleet of our mean and aggressive beasts.
Time For Action
What an exciting end to 2017 we have seen throughout the ARRMA global bashing scene. The holiday season saw plenty of smiling faces from new owners of ARRMA vehicles. We have enjoyed seeing so many new bashers join the growing ranks of our worldwide fan base.
We thought the first week of 2018 was the perfect opportunity to share a collection of our favourite holiday images with you. From OUTCAST 6S Stunt Trucks, to FAZON and GRANITE VOLTAGE rigs, seeing the wrapping paper being torn off during Christmas has been really fun.
2018 is set to an epic year for ARRMA fans, with social media community pages growing aggressively week-by-week and louder and bigger bash events taking place all over the world.
With so many younger ARRMA fans recieving shiny fresh blasting machines, we are certain the awesome videos and photos will be pouring into ARRMA HQ rapidly over the coming weeks.
However you and your friends choose to attack the dirt, stay focused on having fun. We are looking forward to seeing some epic achievements in 2018 folks. Stay safe, blast hard.
Go Beyond Stock
We all love customizable RC vehicles. ARRMA fans are amongst the most creative when it comes to changing their bashing looks and increasing their all-terrain capabilities.
ARRMA create the perfect platforms for custom projects, with solid factory built chassis configurations that span a wide range of off-roader vehicle types. From street buggy to monster truck, whatever you choose to begin with, ARRMA have all angles fully locked down. Adjustable body shell mounts, universal hub fittings, fast and simple bumper mounts. ARRMA rigs are ready for your next project build.
If you want to really push previous limits, with speed and looks, many of our 1/8 vehicles have a cross-fitting sympathy with chassis plates and suspension parts. This means you can look at short wheelbase, or a stretched variant of your TYPHON 6S or KRATON 6S for example.
Whether you are looking for straight line bullet speed, giant tire terrain crushing, or even photogenic shelf queen looks, choosing an ARRMA vehicle as the backbone for your customization project will guarantee ultimate flexibility and solid durability.
The journey starts now. Choose your platform and go for gold.
ARRMA fans are now synonymous with awesome custom bashing machines, working hard to achieve fresh new looks, based on many of our fast and tough blasting beasts. One area that never fails to remain popular is custom wheel and tire choices. ARRMA fans love beefing up their rides to allow even more dirt-ripping action.
The fun part of selecting your own set of new tires and rims is balancing the boost in performance with the undoubtedly cool increase in mean looks. Going bigger and bolder with your tire choice can turn your already awesome stock ARRMA rig into an even more aggressive animal.
From the parking lot, to the sand pit. From the beach, to the mud bog, no matter how you decide to shoe your ARRMA bashing vehicle, you can create an epic new look and find new benefits from surface-specific handling characteristics.
All ARRMA vehicles are equipped with fast and simple wheel hex fittings, which makes rapid changes easy and hassle-free. Changing wheels and tires is so easy we often see many ARRMA fans fitting special combinations just for photo shoots, then switching back to their super-durable stock configuration when they want to go and blast some mud and snow.
One thing is certain folks. However you choose to customize your own wheel and tire set up, the aggressive looks and handling variations that can be achieved will provide you with almost limitless options. All you have to them decide is what surface you will attack.
Share your custom wheel and tire options through social media and add the tag #CUSTOMARRMA so the community can enjoy your hard work.
Seasonal Bashing Action
With the holidays quickly approaching, we are very excited to see exactly how ARRMA fans decide to maximise the blasting action during that all-important seasonal down time.
No matter if you are an experienced ARRMA bashing Pro, or you are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to rip open that large box sat under the tree, this time of the year is prime for some awesome RC fun.
We have already seen plenty of talk on social media that some lucky people will be unwrapping shiny new ARRMA bashing machines in a few weeks, with our recently launched GRANITE MEGA 4×4 featuring in lots of pre-holiday purchases so far. Gearing up for backyard holiday bashing with friends and family is a hot topic.
Lots of existing ARRMA owners are already kitted out for snow and ice, with custom-created powder ploughs being a popular addition to the SENTON 6S BLX Short Course Truck.
The VOLTAGE 2WD platform is perfectly suited for less experienced RC fans who need a solid starting point, as they learn what skills are required to dominate the dirt and mud. We can imagine there are going to be some serious smiles when folks rip open the paper and get ready to experience adrenaline tweaking ARRMA action.
For those who require ultimate ripping power, the TALION 6S BLX is waiting. Perfectly suited to more experienced bashers who demand all-out Brushless blasting power, we wonder how many subtle hints are being dropped at the moment regarding this rough and tough Speed Truggy weapon.
However you plan to enjoy the upcoming holiday period, if you are preparing to give an ARRMA vehicle as a gift, or even better, eyeing up the size of the wrapping paper being smuggled into the house this weekend, we are certain there are going to be some happy times ahead.
Stay safe. Stay ARRMA.
