I got a Used & abused 6s typhon from eBay for 150$ I couldn’t pass it up. With a little TLC and $$$$ I’m gonna have this thing looking like a 2021 v6. Lol ? It came with hot racing bulk head covers front and rear :) GKA chassis braces, hot racing motor mount/diff cover that I won’t be using. Just wanna show what it was like when I got it and to see how different it will look when I’m all done!! It needs work like the diffs need done and I hate the rusty screws so it’s gonna be a whole new machine!! . Also I’ve got TONS of new parts coming!! Some from PPS. motor mount, diff cover/mount. Some scorched titanium drive shafts & turnbuckles & shock towers!! & bearings. Also got the M2C towers cause I wasn’t sure which I want to go with. T bone bumpers. harden steel 46t Spur. And for power I got New castle 2200kv motor/esc combo on the way from horizon. And I’m sure I still got some more to order but I figured I’d start a post now before I got to far ahead of myself. Just waiting on mail deliveries? I’m still learning this is only my second attempt at Kinda building An arrma. I wanted a “winter project” and it’s not even winter yet...might have to get another. Check out my Profile Photos for my stretched talion build. And my large fleet. Definitely arrma addicted F52CE9CA-E9CA-41AE-8179-5370638E86D8.jpeg 040F5C54-EE7D-4022-89F1-E229C656389C.jpeg C7DC5171-D4F0-4EA3-BBB5-7D437AF2A827.jpeg 876D0DDD-AA74-45C0-8B84-F911BE4F8B4A.jpeg EB968475-29EB-4866-9842-D4B7692EFF4A.jpeg 7E36CC12-ACD4-4035-AB58-A9027999B266.jpeg 88EF35CA-5D26-4446-B8A2-98BF2CA165E5.jpeg 3B35CE0E-4B84-403E-AA69-CC5D8ED79187.jpeg D74C9127-6FD0-4EBF-9E5C-EEF9B65695EE.jpeg 028614AA-2019-4CA7-B9FA-9AE57E176ED8.jpeg C984C822-5532-483B-8444-651DF6A40C55.jpeg 19BC1535-7154-49A2-8518-5CD24BD97FFE.jpeg

Lol if she only knew!! Almost like the hidden part orders I gotta keep saying are Christmas Gifts?. I never say for who. But they’re for me!! Haha. Pps parts arrived :) super nice too! just waiting on stainless screw kit and some other things as well. Thanksgiving definitely slowed the mail down but that’s okay, this is supposed to be my winter project but it’s looking more like a Christmas gift to myself haha!!!
Here’s my parts list.
44t Spur.
Pps - motor mount- diff cover- diff Mount.
Gka - chassis braces
Hot racing - front/rear bulk heads
Hot racing - front/rear bulk head covers
Gka - servo Mount
Scorched - titanium front/rear towers
Scorched - titanium drive shafts
Scorched - titanium turnbuckles
New body - clear I’m gonna paint it.
New rear shocks
T bone - front/rear bumpers
Castle - 2200kv monster x combo
New chassis stock for now.
Hot racing- Rear wing brace mount
Hot racing- Aluminum hubs Front/Rear
Arrma - Aluminum diff cases
Hot racing- aluminum bell crack
Hoons - 4 Wheels/tires gold letters :)
Hot racing - bulk head covers.
Fast eddys - bearing kit
Hot racing- sway bar mounts
Exb top plate
GPM - aluminum brackets Top, FF,FR,RR,RF.
Spektrum DX5 - transmitter
Sr6100- receiver


Im sure I missed somethings or could have picked better better parts. But I like to get a deal or try to get the same quality for a better price. 20$ for tiny pieces of aluminum just baffles me sure they look good though. I figured anything’s better than plastic sometimes!

My fiancé is awesome! She doesn’t mind the fact I’ve got 4-5 big ass arrmas in the front living room and on the kitchen table. I’m always cooking something in the Arrma kitchen.

But if i want anymore upgrades I think I’m gonna have to start stripping because the prices of parts is outta control. 🥼

Okay now ALL the parts have arrived. Im pretty much upgrading or replacing everything with better or new parts. Covered the top of the chassis takes a little time but looks awesome!! Also did the wheels with a gold paint pen. I like to do little things that just look good. Starting to rebuild the diffs And add shims since this was a older model it didn’t have any. My first time doing them but Its not to difficult. Also swapping to aluminum diff cases, new bearings etc. Because I can’t do all of this work and not check the diffs since I got this as a roller.. :) one thing at a time slowly but surely I’ll have a BadAss 6s Typhon. Probably 1000$ into this build. Shouldn’t need anything else Fingers crossed ?

Great job!!! Please tell me you have a running tally on the parts needed to get her running again with the updated parts! Can't wait to see the final project and take your time and post along the way!

Yes Im keeping track, I’ll have to add it all up for exact but a rough estimate I’m easily in 1,000$ including getting the roller. So little over 800$ in new parts/upgrades. Thanks a lot! Definitely taking my time I’m still new to all this so I’m constantly asking @MFM questions all day. But I’ll get it done that’s forsure!!! Here’s a pic from today I rebuilt the center diff with the aluminum case. 44t spur, Japanese scorched bearings, pps motor mount & diff mount. Can’t wait to see how it looks with the pps cover!! I’ve got a lot left to do! Not really good at soldering so I need to practice before I put the connectors on my new castle esc. Trying to make sure I get this right, and not rush through it like I usually do with most things. I plan on keeping this Typhon forever so im enjoying learning about all the moving parts, still rusty on the electronics and I’m terrified to plug 6s batteries in sometimes due to having one blow all cells in my hand A few months ago and then last night I had a new esc start smoking immediately when I plugged it in to a charged battery on my outcast but that’s a completely different project. ( ordered all new firma motor/esc for it make it a v5 outcast for 120$ not bad I love jennys!) so I’ll do that after the typhon maybe Lol but I hate how they spark ⚡⚡️ when plugging in, I guess it’s normal but being new to the Lipo side it’s terrifying. But I wanna go FAST ? 6s 100c is rightt for me :) 7 arrmas and I love every single one of them. 8th one will be the typhon can’t wait for spring 2021.

Check out all my media/videos too see my other 6s monsters :)

For anyone who needs these shims, Took me awhile to find which I needed, so I’ll share in my build as well. Maybe help someone else out. I used videos on YouTube there’s a bunch. Watch a few and it was pretty simple.

Beautiful looking rear end. Scorched titanium towers, titanium turnbuckles, HR bulkhead,HR diff cover, HR sway bar mount, HR wing mount, HR aluminum hubs, Arrma aluminum diff case.
Front will be the same.

Shimmed :)


She will be done shortly :) I can’t wait to add her to my fleet. And after looking at my “stretched talion” I’m already considering stretching my typhon! I love how they look. My sentons already spooled, but I ordered another one to pop in my typhon in the future..having one of each makes it difficult to pick which to set up for what! They’re all capable of anything!!! I love arrma. Running out of space between parts and rigs it’s outta control. I’ve got over 25 full sets of wheels!! I can’t believe how much Rc stuff I’ve accumulated since I bought my first 6s not even a year ago. Can’t wait for warmer weather :)

Also I made some more stretched mounts, cause I have a feeling I’ll stretch the typhon. Just like I made the ones on my talion. 🔥🔥🔥🦾🏎🏎🏎🏎🏎

I don’t get on the forum very often. But I’m trying too keep this updated. I completed the typhon with all the parts listed. Also did a custom body that came out great for only being my 2nd time, I just need to put the electronics in which I’ll have done by spring. I’ve got a bunch of projects going on. And tons of parts to install on my other rigs so I’m using this winter to get that done. Come spring time I’ll be ready to rip!! Love the look of the scorched titanium towers only makes sense to use the strongest towers on a typhon since they’re open.

Looks super nice. Have you used the aluminum diffs before and if so how do they hold up? And did u just wrap that tbone bumper or u buy it like that with the carbon?

This being my first build, I’m still horrible at soldering 👨‍🏭 . So I’ve gotta practice before I put on a battery connector. Also what pinon to start with or to put the spool in. So many choices!! Still Waiting on the hot racing servo link of all things I forgot to get at the beginning!!! Haha I’ve got to much $$$$ into this so I’m trying to take my time. I’ve got to install the v5 firma system in my outcast, take the big bore shocks off, Im putting talion shocks and towers on it just for something different. Then add some upgrades to my Mojave & skid plates on the felony. I’ve got plenty to do before spring. #ArrmaAddicted
