Arrma Kraton 6s EXB w/ tons of upgrades


Pictures are right after my last bash(haven’t had time to clean it yet)
Also included pictures of when I bought it and started building it. And parts and upgrades etc.

(more picture w/ request)

Over $3.5k invested into this setup (I’ll add a comment with parts and pricing)
Asking $1200

Located outside of Pittsburgh Pa

Kittanning, Pa


The kraton has 6 charges(3 different days 2 sets of batteries each day) ran through it. “The batteries are always stored in storage mode until the night before I go to drive the truck”

I apologize for the dust/grass currently on the kraton in the pictures (haven’t had a chance to properly clean it after taking it out yesterday)

Overall the Kraton is in excellent condition. The body and wing has scrapes and scratches from sliding on it’s roof when it would flip over. But overall the truck is in excellent condition.



Truck comes with extra screws and misc. stuff

I think there could be more. But it’s late and I’m dead tired. I’ll double check in the morning and update if needed.

I forgot it combined the comment with the previous post if no one commented yet 🤦🏻

Sorry for the super long post haha

Recommendation: Delete pictures from when it was new and only show it as it sits today, you might save yourself some headaches from a disappointed buyer. GLWS

Appreciate the advice. Was just mainly trying to show the build process. And the parts I had laid out by it. I’ll probably keep at least the one showing some of the parts. But I’ll defiantly remember to point out that the one isn’t the current status.

Wow lots of extra parts on this truck! Nice
Yeah. Lots of money and time went into this build. But sadly I just don’t have the time to bash anymore. I sold my kraton 8s and my kraton 6s v4 a while back then built this one thinking I’d have more time with one build. But nope haha. Love the hobby but unfortunately I just don’t have the time to take it out like it should be used.

I’ll make a note of this, because you never know. $1200 is a decent chunk and a lot don’t have the extra money right now.

Your good, sorry I didn’t mean for that to sound like that. I just meant I could still have it by then. Meaning I’ll make a note to check in with ya in a week or so.
Also I’m located in Kittanning pa. Just making sure you saw that part. 5-6 hours away Personally I’d make the haul to pick up something if I was buying but it’s a decent drive haha

all good man. i realized you didn't mention shipping. i automatically assumed shipping was included if not mentioned but im not well versed in this forum to know what the default is. If i could, Id definitely drive but i don't unfortunately. picking it up and seeing it before buying and getting it right away is definitely something I wish I could do.

i didnt factor shipping into this. if anything, if you would be inclined, maybe Id pay for gas for the trip or see what shipping might cost.

Replied to this one in the direct message. Just now seeing this but I’m thinking it was before I responded in dm’s.

And parts not installed updated. But I’ll dm them as well

Bump*. Might be back up for grabs.

Pending shipping quotes and if it works out.

Prefer pick up (Kittanning pa) outskirts of Pittsburgh.

If shipping is required I don’t have PayPal atm, I do have Venmo and Facebook (I guess both of them have protections for the buyer) but I’d prefer pick up w/ cash in hand.


I’d also be willing to sell this combo with out the 4s batteries and charger. Have a friend that could use them.

$900 w/o the 4s batteries and charger

$1200 for the entire combo

just to clarify. I have been ready with money.

Seller has a situation with paypal so we looked for other payment methods with protection (just in case). We see that Venmo/Facebook Marketplace does.

I am just waiting for a shipping quote from seller. Once we get the quote, if all goes to plan, this will be sold.

Seller is making it aware that if it does not work out for some reason, then the above situation comes into play.

I just want to say, I have been in touch with Jdarby05 the entire time. Great with communication. I hope this all works out.

I’m gonna clean it up today after work and take more pics of it for you. And hopefully I can get the quote today. It really sucks having a local ups store only open 1 hour for the day lol.

Imagine it would be so much cheaper to ship ups ground with tracking / insurance vs Usps or FedEx though

Depends if you have an account with em. Typically I use pirateship.com you get a decent discount on shipping.

I shipped 2 RC's last month. For both, the USPS and UPS on-line calculator were +-$10 of each other. I shipped both USPS, one came under the estimated shipping, even though it was 5lbs heavier than I expected, the other was $25 over due to the >22" charge and >2Cubic foot charge.

Insurance fee’s are the biggest pain when shipping expensive big items lol
