    Vorteks Highly modified Typhon Mega build

    Just wanted to share a weird experiment I've been working on. I bought this typhon on ebay as just a chassis. I put a 550 brushed motor in and tried it out. The power seemed severely lacking. Having no idea if the idea would work, I ordered a 775 brushed motor and a wp 880 esc. With an aluminum...

    Senton Senton 4x2 to brushless, without going 4x4

    I bought the Senton 4x2 not to save any money, but because I want a 2wd truck. Now I’m hearing my upgrade path to brushless requires 4x4… Why? If I upgrade the motor mount, spur and pinion and possibly the diff, shouldn’t I be good?

    Vorteks Vorteks 3S/4X4 brushed Granite Question

    Hey all so I had a question that I had been digging into and I wanted to get some additional input.

    Granite Lipo 2S Burning out Mega 550 12T Brushed Motor?

    My son has the Arrma granite 4x4 brushed. Stock NiMH runs out quite quickly, so we got 2 spektrum 5000 2S LiPos. He ran it for too long I think on first day, (as he now has 13,300 mAh instead of 3,300...) and there was a definite smell. However it kept on running after that, and I explained...

    Typhon Typhon 4x4 Mega shock upgrade?

    I bought the new Typhon 4x4 Mega Brushed car for my son and he smashed into something and bent the shock pretty good (I have tried to bend back but it is not gliding smooth.) Is there a simple, inexpensive upgraded set of shock that I can put on this thing? From what I am seeing, the stock...

    Can you run a 3s on stock electronics?

    My son has a brushed granite and he lost the battery. I tried one on my 3s 30c lipos from my crawler on it (yes i moved the jumper for LiPo). It runs fine at part throttle but after 5sec or less at full it shuts down. LiPo monitor never alarms and shows full voltage? Any answers. Can you run a...

    Granite Do you need to break in brushed motor

    Might be a stupid question but I have only had brushless motors. I just got my wife a arrma granted voltage today for her birthday. Somewhere I had seen before that you have to break in brushed motors and not brushless. I am wondering do I need to break in the brushed motor on the voltage and...

    Granite Granite Voltage upgrades?

    I thought about replacing the stock motor with an official Arrma "Mega" 550 brushed version. It doesn't appear to come with this. Would it make a difference? And it is easy to install? What pinion should I use? Thanks!

    Maximum Motor Temp

    What is the highest motor temp you guys feel comfortable with? I have an infrared thermometer on order. The other day my son was running his Fury through some thicker grass and we saw smoke coming from the back. Luckily it was just some dry grass, but the motor was extremely warm. After it...

    Hpi blitz complete transmission in granite mega?

    Hey, yall! Was just sitting here thinking about how crappy it is that arrma discontinued some major transmission components, making it almost impossible for anyone wanting to upgrade their granites transmission. I read somewhere that people were using hpi blitz trans parts in their granites. I...

    Granite mega battery

    I just got my Granite, when I bought it it said a 7 cell Nimh would fit without any mods, however when I went to install the battery it will not fit. Am I doing something wrong?
