    Vorteks Ok, new Vorteks, more issues

    I bought my son his own vorteks, this thing is GRINDING. I adjusted the slipper and used lo tite on the screw because it was so tight out of the box that the tires would lock up if you let off the throttle. It did not make the braking noise when it was happening. That solved to tire lock up...

    Vorteks Vorteks 3s is making a strange almost like a grinding sound

    It happens when I have it at 100% and turn, It will balance on its side then the sound happens. Could it be the wheel hitting up against the body shell? 🤔

    Vorteks Center diff install on Vorteks

    I've been intrigued by the center diff on the new 4s Mojave (and I assume the rest of the 4s lineup soon). I really love my Vorteks and figured it would be a great addition. However, the diffs and housings have been on backorder for a bit. I managed to find some shops that had them in stock...

    Vorteks How to replace front shock shaft?

    How do you replace an Arrma 3S shock shaft? Any good videos? This thing broke on its first run, Arrma needs to up their game on basic shocks

    Vorteks I guess i got a Vorteks 😆

    Pinion mesh was spot on from factory. Wheelaxels bolta were really tight from factory. New Spektrum ESC beeps with lipo count 👍 (Granite esc does not). So everything seems really good out of the box. Now my son with his Granite and my Vorteks will have a blast!

    Spektrum Firma 130A

    Hi all, I bought a Firma Spektrum 130a and installed it in my vorteks. I ran a couple of batteries and when I charges my lipos again it said that the cell voltage was barely 3V. I read everywhere that going below 3.2V will kill the batteries. When I looked into the programming of the esc I...

    Vorteks Vorteks NO STEERING

    Hello all. I recently just got a 3s vorteks and it's been an incredible truck. I've been bashing it every day for about a week. Anyways, I took it out for a run yesterday and the truck worked flawlessly until the very end of the run when it stopped steering completely. I thought it was perhaps...

    Vorteks Motor Issues

    Im using the stock 550 motor and I recently switched to metal gears and added 4x4 upgrade to my Vorteks, and since then I've smoked two motors. The first motor after upgraded to the 57t .8 mod spur gear, I was using the 15t .8 mod pinion and I assumed the gear ratio was too high. Got the motor...

    Vorteks Chassis’s mix and match’s

    So was wondering with all these different models in the Arrma family it got me thinking about what models share the same chassis with the Vorteks? As known this knowledge could open up all sorts of modifications and make some nice hybrids.

    Vorteks Issues with a previously working ARA4305V3 esc (red light of death)

    I've spent the last hour digging through YT and this form for answers to this issue. I've got an ARA4305V3 ESC I had separate from any truck and I tested it two days ago, esc and motor were both working perfectly. Today, I toss the whole setup in my Vorteks project and I get the red light of...

    Forward and Reverse are switched

    My son was bashing with his stock Vorteks and went into a full panic that forward and reverse are no longer normal. He says he didn’t change anything on the controller. What’s the proper way to fix this?

    Vorteks Keep destroying rear diff with a particular set of (heavier) tyres.

    I've got my data imo. Both times I destroyed my rear diff, was with the JetKo MT Extreme Tyre Tomahawk Belted on Arrma Granite Black Rims 14mm Hex (2) tyres. They are quite heavy compared to stock Vorteks, Louise RC MT MCross tyres, so the car can backflip and frontflip crazy, but this keeps...
