    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.

Just wanted to share some of the stuff I've done on it and pics to go along with it. I purchased the Vorteks about a week ago during the Horizon Hobby sale (I also ended...

    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...

    Arrma Vorteks 3S BLX build thread.

    heya, So this used to be a stock Vorteks, but stock tyres are super low quality imo and don't allow good air control, so here we are right now. I am waiting for a 25t servo saver and will be installing a Savox 0.08s 30kg servo into it. Could be 0.06 but the ESC doesn't do 8.4V :| I think I will...

    Vorteks Can I see any decent logs with the bt2000 telemetry?

    I love how Raz Shifrin can check his telemetry after speedruns. I understand that my £400 Arrma Vorteks with a £20 bt2000 module is not as sophisticated, but I wonder whether I could pull out something good. I downloaded some log files, but it seems its more like error logs.

    Vorteks Anybody seen this before?

    Would the metal slipper sleeve (4S) help prevent this happening again? *Part has already been replaced by my super helpful supplier in the UK.
