Driving the Arrma Kraton 6S BLX

Arrma Kraton Truggy

Over the course of the last half year, Arrma has revamped most of their lineup in addition to releasing an entirely new machine (Nero). The latest rig in their fleet to get the new electronics and revised components is the Kraton 6S BLX. A standard truggy layout that’s meant for backyard bashing and parking lot drag races, the Kraton now features the potent BLX185 ESC and 2050Kv 4-pole motor combo. That means blistering speeds and power only matched by the reliability of this new system as tested in the earlier new releases. All that, plus the fact that the electronics package is completely waterproof means that blasting through mud puddles isn’t only possible, it’s downright mandatory.

The improvements to this latest iteration of the Kraton include revised front and rear hubs to increase durability and longevity as well as a new wing mount to keep the downforce where you need it after those unexpected tumbles. This Kraton 6S BLX also got a makeover in the tire department with the new dBoot Minokawa AT tires and multi-spoke rims. To top it all off, the new Kraton looks amazing courtesy of the re-worked paint scheme, ditching the previous “cookie cutter” body. The new model comes in your choice of red/black or green/black. Now watch Matt hit the track for some high speed off-road fun! See the full review of the new Arrma Kraton in the October 2016 of RC Driver Magazine.
