Product Overview

With the installed, 2S or 3S compatible Spektrum Firma 3200Kv brushless motor, the VORTEKS is fast right out of the box. Using a 3S LiPo battery and an optional pinion gear, it easily becomes the first ARRMA 4X4 3S BLX model capable of 60 mph and more!

The proven tough ARRMA 4X4 platform lets you bash at high speeds in almost any environment - off-road, on dirt and grass, on parking lots and over paved and asphalt surfaces. Its durability comes from a strong composite chassis featuring extended height dirt defenders, oil-filled shocks with silicone O-rings, metal geared differentials and more. Rugged bumpers and high-traction dBoots Katar tyres mounted on tough, gun-metal colored wheels add to its unstoppable performance. The VORTEKS 4X4 3S BLX also includes a sleek, new stadium truck body with tough, injection-moulded wing and protective roof skids.

ARRMA adds the security of advanced Spektrum electronics to the VORTEKS Stadium Truck's speed and toughness to create a totally exhilarating bashing experience. With its included DX3 DSMR 2.4GHz radio system, SR6200A receiver and Firma 100A ESC, this is the first ARRMA 1/10 scale 4X4 model to provide the benefits of AVC (Active Vehicle Control) and Smart technology straight out of the box.


With the AVC system's on-demand traction control, you can dial-in extra stability as needed to carve corners or nail jumps without backing off the power. You have full-throttle freedom over rough terrain, slick surfaces and loose dirt. When you don't want the extra traction, just dial back the stability. The DX3 radio's AVC system works behind the scenes, making hundreds of minute steering and throttle adjustments per second to keep the VORTEKS Stadium Truck precisely on the line you want to hold.

Download the optional Spektrum Dashboard app to your mobile device - it's available free from the iPhone App Store and Google Play - to take full advantage of the Smart electronics' telemetry capabilities. Once you connect your mobile device wirelessly via Bluetooth to the VORTEKS Stadium Truck's DX3 transmitter, you can use it to view top speed, battery voltage and other essential data in real time (requires an optional BT2000 Bluetooth Module, available separately).

The ARRMA VORTEKS 4X4 3S BLX Stadium Truck RTR represents the highest level of speed and technology found yet in the proven tough ARRMA 4X4 platform. If you're a basher who wants the best - and who appreciates outstanding value - it's all right here.

Strong Composite Chassis

Features that contribute to the 4X4 3S BLX platform's unstoppable performance include a stronger composite chassis and retained hinge pin plates; steering with more clearance for stones; castellated slipper pads and sliding gear mesh; and rubber-shielded bearings throughout.Extended height dirt defenders limit the amount of dirt and debris that can get into the chassis tub. Front and rear bumpers offer defense against impacts.


Convenient Modular Design

The VORTEKS 4X4 3S BLX Stadium Truck RTR incorporates the signature ARRMA easy-access modular design. Separate, easily removable chassis modules for the power system, electronics and differential components make routine maintenance fast and simple. The power module can be detached from the chassis as a complete unit by removing just one screw. With the power module removed, the slipper clutch can be reached easily for servicing by taking out three screws that attach the gear cover.




Wheels and Tyres

Multi-surface, vented dBoots Katar tread tyres are mounted to tough, gun-metal color nylon wheels. The tyres provide aggressive grip and easy handling characteristics in all conditions and are made of high-quality rubber for long-lasting durability.


Stadium Truck Body

The sleek stadium truck body features a tough, injection-moulded rear wing and protective roof skids. It's available finished in your choice of three exciting color combinations. Front and rear bumpers protect against impacts and a wheelie bar provides stunt potential.


Oil-Filled Shocks

The self-bleeding, oil-filled shocks with silicone O-rings use a tried and tested, coil-over design for simple maintenance and amazing handling. Their innovative rod-end has a moulded-in spring perch for extra toughness.


Spektrum Smart technology is about offering a higher connection to your hobby. It's a connection that puts you in complete control, makes you more aware and more confident about the capability of your equipment-all while making vital components of your model easier to use than ever. The combined result is a sense that will make you wish everything about your hobby was smarter.



DX3 Radio System

The ergonomic design of the DX3 transmitter provides a feel that any driver will appreciate. Its overall low weight allows all-day driving with minimal fatigue. The control layout is amazingly intuitive - the servo reversing switches, steering and throttle trim dials, AVC/steering rate dial and 3-position throttle limiter are all perfectly positioned to be quickly accessible when needed and out of the way when not in use.


Smart Battery Level Indicator and Alarm

Integrated into the face of the DX3 Smart is a helpful Smart Battery voltage indicator. Drivers can easily find out the charge of their Smart battery with a quick glance and once the battery level gets low, an alarm will sound.(Smart Battery required).


Active Vehicle Control

With an AVC system, you can dial in extra stability as needed to carve corners or nail jumps without backing off the power. When you don't want the extra traction, just dial back the stability and get loose. The DX3 transmitter's AVC system works behind the scenes, making hundreds of minute steering and throttle adjustments per second to keep you precisely on the line you want to hold.
