Product Overview

The ready-to-run, 1/8 scale ARRMA VENDETTA 4X4 3S BLX Speed Racer makes it easy for any driver with intermediate experience to enjoy the thrill of blasting at incredible speeds over on-road and light off-road surfaces. Just install your 3S LiPo battery and the supplied optional speed pinion to reach 70 mph+ speeds in optimum conditions - while ARRMA engineering and Spektrum electronics provide exceptional durability and control.

Its proven ARRMA 4X4 platform features a strong composite chassis with extended height dirt defenders, oil-filled shocks with silicone O-rings, metal geared differentials and more. That makes the VENDETTA 4X4 3S BLX Speed Racer rugged enough for bashing at high speeds over loose gravel, dirt, and oval tracks. When maintenance is due, the signature ARRMA easy-access modular design keeps it simple with separate, easily removable chassis modules for the power system, electronics and differential components.

While you're maximizing the speed potential of the powerful Spektrum Firma 3660 3900Kv brushless motor, high and low downforce wings on the aerodynamically tuned body help keep your tyres glued to the surface. The dBoots Hoons Elevens vented all-road tyres are mounted on tough, gun-metal coloured nylon wheels and deliver incredible traction in all surface conditions, while a large rear double diffuser reduces turbulence and drag.


ARRMA engineers combine the VENDETTA 4X4 3S BLX Speed Racer's speed and toughness with the exclusive control advantages of Spektrum electronics. The included DX3 DSMR 2.4GHz radio system, SR6200A receiver and Firma 100A ESC work together to provide the benefits of AVC (Active Vehicle Control) and Smart technology straight out of the box.

Using 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 VENDETTA 4X4 3S BLX Speed Racer 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 VENDETTA 4X4 3S BLX Speed Racer'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 VENDETTA 4X4 3S BLX Speed Racer body is available factory-finished in your choice of green or blue matte and gloss effect paint schemes with scale decals. Only a 2S or 3S hardcase LiPo battery, compatible charger and four AA transmitter batteries are required.

Strong Composite Design

Features that contribute to the 4X4 3S BLX platform's unstoppable performance include a strong composite chassis; steering with more clearance for stones; a castellated slipper pad 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. A large front foam bumper integrates with body for maximum protection.


Convenient Modular Design

The VENDETTA 4X4 3S BLX Speed Racer 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.

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.
