Overview

Making your move into 1/8 scale Speed Buggy action has never been easier. Fast, rugged and factory-built, the 2S LiPo-compatible ARRMA® TYPHON 4X4 MEGA RTR comes ready out of the box to bash on any terrain. Precision aluminium, tough steel and composite materials come together for an easy-to-maintain, super-durable vehicle design whose high downforce wing and low center of gravity, with wide arms and narrow wheels and tyres, improve handling over race tracks, trails, muddy courses, skate parks and more. This version features new equipment that further increases the original Speed Buggy's already impressive performance and durability.

The TYPHON 4X4 MEGA RTR is DESIGNED FAST, DESIGNED TOUGH - built for exciting bashing speeds and extreme, all-terrain durability. New features that enhance its unstoppable performance include a stronger chassis and retained hinge pin plates; steering with more clearance for stones; a castellated slipper pad and sliding gear mesh; and rubber-shielded bearings throughout.

The Speed Buggy now also includes the Spektrum SLT3 transmitter and SLR300 receiver. The transmitter is ergonomically designed for long periods of fatigue-free bashing and has a foam wheel for precise fingertip control plus an improved hand grip and trigger feel. New bashers will be able to set throttle limits at 50% or 75% until they are ready to use the full speed potential. The SLT3 is compatible with Tactic® SLT receivers to run other RTR vehicles you may own, and includes a third channel to control optional features such as lights and winches on models that have them.

It also has the ingenious modular design perfected by ARRMA® engineers for easy component access and maintenance. The power module, with improved dirt management, consists of a MEGA 550 motor for rock-jumping speed, plus motor plate, slipper clutch assembly and gear cover. 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 adjustments by taking out three screws that attach the gear cover. The gear ratio can be finely tuned as the power module now uses a sliding motor mesh design.

A two-piece molding screwed to the Speed Buggy's chassis serves as its electronics module, containing a waterproof receiver box, servo mount and ESC tray. The SLR300 receiver mounts inside the receiver box for protection from dirt and moisture. The ultra-compact ESC is screwed to the top of the module, allowing quick access to the on/off switch, while the servo mounts to the side. All three components can be removed together, quickly and easily.

The differential module houses each differential unit in an innovative yoke design. Only eight screws need to be removed to release the front and rear yokes. The power module can then be detached, allowing you to pivot the gearbox cases for differential access. The TYPHON 4X4 MEGA RTR comes brushless-ready with 37T 1.35mod diffs with silicone O-rings. The large gears can withstand huge torque, and internal metal gears have been chosen for reliability during extreme bashing.

Its full-time 4WD transmission uses strong front, rear, and centerline telescopic driveshafts that can't be lost during heavy impacts, unlike dogbones. A simple, dependable, responsive steering assembly complements the ultra-reliable drive system and features a servo horn with built-in servo saver. The TYPHON 4X4 MEGA RTR includes the waterproof Spektrum SPMS650 digital servo for 20% more torque than the previous version's ADS-5 servo.

The self-bleeding, oil-filled shocks, now 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. High chassis sides and a close-fitting buggy body limit the amount of dirt and debris that can get into the chassis tub. Front and rear bumpers offer defense against impacts.

Tough, multi-spoke wheels with vented dBoots® 2-HO tyres give the 1/8 scale TYPHON 4X4 MEGA RTR Speed Buggy effective traction for bashing on almost any terrain. Multiple battery types can be used with the hook-and-loop mounting, from 6-cell NiMH packs to a 2S block pack. This version comes with a Dynamite® 3300 mAh 8.4V 7-cell Speedpack® 2 Hump NiMH battery that provides 35% more run time compared to the 2400mAh pack of its predecessor.

We want to ensure a smooth delivery experience for you, and here are some key details to keep in mind about our service.

  • For orders exceeding £120, delivery is available exclusively to mainland UK addresses. However, orders below £120 can be delivered to outlying Isles and Northern Ireland, provided they meet specific criteria: they must be deliverable by Royal Mail, weigh less than 30kg, and fit within the dimensions of 61cm x 46cm x 46cm. Please be aware that certain highland areas may entail additional delivery fees, as couriers often charge more for these deliveries. If you reside in the highlands or any outlying regions, we recommend reaching out to us before placing your order to verify delivery options and any potential extra charges.
  • Delivery is typically included in the price for the majority of our products, unless otherwise specified. However, please note that orders under £80 will incur an additional delivery charge. You can easily view this charge on the checkout page when finalising your purchase. We aim to maintain transparency in our pricing structure while providing you with the best possible service.
  • Most orders will be delivered via either a next working day delivery service or within 2 working days, depending on your chosen service. Please note that for next working day delivery, the cut-off time is 12pm, and dispatch occurs exclusively on weekdays. However, certain items may have longer shipping times, and the expected delivery period will be clearly specified in the product listing.
  • To streamline your order fulfillment process, please note that when your order includes items with varying shipping times, we follow this approach: If any item in your order has a longer shipping time, we will hold the entire order until all items are in stock. However, if certain items are expected to be restocked after a considerable delay, we offer you two options. You can choose to wait for complete fulfillment, where we'll dispatch the order once all items are back in stock. Alternatively, you have the option to receive a partial delivery, where we'll promptly send you the in-stock items and deliver the remaining items as they become available. Your satisfaction and convenience are paramount, and we strive to accommodate your preferences for multi-item orders.
  • To ensure efficient delivery, we work with trusted carriers: DPD Local for next working day delivery and Royal Mail for the 2 working days option.
  • After dispatching your goods, we'll promptly send you an email containing the parcel's tracking number. To ensure you stay updated conveniently, kindly provide a valid mobile number, which we will add to the consignment. This way, you can receive real-time updates on your mobile phone for added convenience.
  • For listings specifying a shipping time of "Dispatched within 3 working days," please note that orders under this category will typically be delivered within a timeframe of 3 to 5 working days.
