Anyone has been wondering what arrma has been up to? Months of radio silence. What you think they are cooking or they took vacations because of covid again?
 
Well they have to create something or their brand will die
I think its time for something new
No it won't. They could survive off the bread and butter of the 6s lineup and be just fine.
 
The on road trucks was something new. Still is and can be improved and build on i think. But they cannot just keep making 3s reshells 6s typhon/kraton reshells
 
No it won't. They could survive off the bread and butter of the 6s lineup and be just fine.
But by discontinuing the rollers they already lost a bunch of costumers. A lot of people do not care one biT about the RTR EXB. Unless its on sale. The rollers was something great. You buy the truck and build it with ur electronics or the electronics you want you buy. Instead you now have to buy the car with all those junky electronic exept the radio. And have to resell the esc and motor to get what you want inside of it.i still have the spektrum esc on my notorious. Im running it without any snow protection because i lost the cover i made. Last winter it would lost drive if it came to a stop it didnt so far this year.
 
What ever it my be, we didn't ask for it! Make better chassis, make better diffs, Make a better slipper.
 
I wish they'd go bigger, I'd love a 1/5 Mojave.
Its going to nose dive like no tomorrow i think

The exb diffs they could trow that on every rtr truck but with the open setup and call it done

Why not? Everyone else does just that and have been doing so for decades. Look at Tamiya they have 100s of cars but only a handful of platforms. From a manufacturing standpoint it is more beneficial to make multiple vehicles on the same platform. Hell even the 1:1 car manufacturers do this.

They need to address the issues with the current lineup before adding to it imho.

Supposedly the rollers didn't sell that well.

IMHO their next new thing should be either a build to drive or a full on kit. I can deal with poopy electronics what I cannot deal with anymore is their lack of care when assembling their vehicles.

Yeah i get it but the range is already covered. They have a stunt truck, truggy, buggy, short course truck, now the assault truck thing that server no purpose and isnt great at anything out of the box other than build and make a kraton xl out of it
They plan to discontinue the fireteam i believe what can create with the 6s line template? I guess a desert truck but theres already other brands in horizonhobby that does that special kind of rc and hurting them and splitting the sales is not good bussiness
The 8s trucks was new but inda underwhkeming they weight like a concrete block. I see tons and tons of them on sale locally

You admit that their bases are covered but yet still want something new? Exactly they really do not need anything new. Get rid of the low sellers and work on resolving the issues with the current vehicles like they have been doing with their model revisions in the past.

Remember the best business model is always to follow the K.I.S.S principle.

Eh, I always build and never buy rtr.

Ayup. How about a Limitless without that stupid kickup in the front that puts the front shaft at a weird angle and eats input bearings for breakfast. Just a thought.

V6 with exb diffs, and other addons. But they made it clear that most of the exb stuff is exclusive to the exb trucks...by uograding the rtr they also lowering the value of their exb lineup. What is most complains people have? The diffs if they throw the exb diffs like everyone wants in the rtr its one less reason of wanting the exb rtr
I believe they put themselves in a spot they cannot run away from. A lot of their issues is QC related as long as they operate in china that will not change much

He buys parts and then builds the vehicle the way he wants it.

The bend in the front of the chassis.

Meh until they fix their QC issues I won't be buying anything made by Horizon Hobbies any time in the near future.
