Experienced bashers can shred big-time with the 1/5 scale ARRMA® KRATON™ 8S BLX 4WD Speed Monster Truck. DESIGNED FAST and DESIGNED TOUGH, it’s ready-to-run out of the box and comes with nearly everything you need — just add your preferred batteries and charger. Download the free Spektrum™ Dashboard App to your mobile device to view motor RPM, ESC temperature, receiver voltage, drive pack voltage and more data in real-time. Dial-in extra stability with the radio’s AVC® system to carve corners and nail jumps without letting up on the throttle. The KRATON 8S BLX 4WD is capable of 55+ MPH speeds in optimum driving conditions using an 8S LiPo (2 x 4S LiPo batteries) and optional pinion gear (available separately). The speed potential is amazing — and you’ll be able to use it all.


Bigger than big and engineered for brute power and toughness, the ARRMA® 1/5 scale KRATON™ 8S BLX 4WD Speed Monster Truck takes your bashing ability to the next level. Its metal-reinforced design lets you blast up, over, and through bruising obstacles without worry. Metal shafts, turnbuckles and outdrives, plus all-metal internal gears, give the drivetrain and suspension system unstoppable strength. The anodized aluminum chassis plate features composite side pods and a triangular center brace for maximum durability. Ultra-thick composite front and rear shock towers hold massive 20mm bore, oil-filled adjustable shocks that soak-up bumps and jolts.

The power that sends the KRATON™ 8S BLX 4WD Speed Monster Truck charging easily over challenging terrain comes from its 1250Kv Spektrum™ Firma™ brushless motor. The torque and acceleration is incredible. For quick access, the motor is mounted with three bolts onto a sliding aluminum mount.

The waterproof electronics module — also designed for easy access — houses and protects more innovative Spektrum™ equipment. ARRMA® has equipped the KRATON™ 8S BLX 4WD Speed Monster Truck with a state-of-the-art Firma™ Smart 160A ESC and SR6100AT AVC® (Active Vehicle Control®) receiver.

The ultra-tough KRATON™ truck body with high-downforce wing is available factory trimmed, painted and decaled in two striking color schemes. A center protection tower on the chassis interfaces with the roll cage for increased body durability. It all rides on multi-split spoke wheels with strong, durable aluminum wheel hubs, and multi-terrain dBoots® COPPERHEAD™ 2 SB tires with a tread pattern designed for extreme, all-terrain action.
