Arrma Typhon 6S BLX - TLR Tuned 1/8 6S 4WD Race Buggy

The Arrma Typhon 6S "TLR Tuned" 1/8 4WD Buggy Roller has been loaded with upgrades to improve durability and handling. It has the chassis tuning capabilities of a race-spec buggy and comes out of the box ready to run. This buggy is also 4S and 6S capable meaning you can race the track on 4S and bash on 6S. Hit your favorite track or bash spot with the Arrma Typhon 6S BLX.

The buggy's durable TLR Tuned 7075-T6 aluminum upgrades include the chassis plate, steering rack, adjustable upper and lower suspension hangers, shock bodies, and front and rear shock towers. The oil-filled, adjustable shocks have machined tapered pistons, machined shock guides, and X-ring seals, and are attached to the shock towers with Extreme Bash (EXB) stand-offs. The TLR Tuned TYPHON 4WD Race Buggy also features a heavy-duty drivetrain that holds up to extreme bashing and high-speed racing, with all-metal differential outdrives and gearbox internals plus durable steel driveshafts throughout. Its extra-strong wheel hubs support low-drag wheels on which ARRMA engineers have mounted multi-terrain, race compound dBoots EXABYTE tires for next-level grip. A Race Spec tunable rear wing helps to keep the tires and buggy grounded, contributing to confident control and responsive handling at high speeds. Maintenance downtime is kept to the minimum with an efficient, driver-friendly design.

I will buy the Roller self and put the new Max8 160a 2250kv sensored combo. I believe 4s is enough for me with 2250kv bashing

Anyone here got the Roller ? How you like it ?
Someone who will buy this RTR version that will be released soon ?

While I agree that ARRMA offers a great value for bashers with solid parts support and a very durable platform, I don't believe the geometry and tuning options warrant the claim as the best RTR on the planet today. I'm not a fan of pivot balls as they tend to present durability issues as well as too aggressive steering for my preference. C-Hubs tend to offer more stability and if I was to buy a RTR to race on the track today, I would probably go with Kyosho, it's also a dated platform, but not nearly as dated as the Typhon:

I would love to see someone do a side by side shootout review comparing both of these cars... for a basher who needs local parts support from the HobbyTownUSA store, then I beleive ARRMA would be the way to go, but someone planning to race at local club with a RTR, then my vote goes to Kyosho.
