This is the arma 3s line collection and as it stands, we have a typhon, the big rock, the scenton, the granite and the newly released vortex. This will just be a quick overview of each vehicle. My likes my dislikes what i think about each one, so stay tuned and let’s get started. First up guys, we have the arma big rock Music, all right guys. The arma big rock is one of my favorites. As you can see, it has the wide stance it’s an all around good basher, very, very durable guys. First thing i want to say right out of the gate: is all these vehicles are super super durable this one in particular, i’ve, probably cartwheeled. It flipped it upside down, landed wrong off the ramp several times traction rolled it. I only had two breakages on this vehicle, one of them being right back here. The rear turnbuckle snapped on me uh, and that was that was me bashing. It really hard. I tried to do a front flip uh in one of my videos and it didn’t work out, and i landed on this back wheel and when i did it snapped that rod um also here in the front the one of the steering blocks broke off down here. At the bottom on a bad landing, so i just replaced that, but as far as that goes guys, nothing major, no major breakages, like i said these vehicles are very tough. They can take a beating.
The big rock is no exception. I mean this thing has been through hell and back guys, and it just keeps coming back for more. What i like about the big rock is: is the power the wheelies it does? It does wheelies on command it’s very fast out of the box, handles really good on the ramp. Some of the things i don’t like about it are, i guess, would be these tires they’re too thin over profile and when giving this uh truck full throttle at full speed. The tires balloon out significantly making them even more thinner, which in turn makes this vehicle, even though it’s wider. The traction rolls because of the fact that the tire is being soaked in and once they balloon out, you know, makes it kind of uh uncontrollable. Sometimes in turns but other than that guys, i really enjoy it it’s a fun vehicle to drive. Again. This is the big rock, an awesome truck it’s a tank go, get you one all right guys! Next up, we have the arma granite: 4×4, 3s blx, Music. So, Music, all right guys again with the granite 4×4 um 3s it’s, an excellent truck to have and again guys. This thing is durable. As hell man, i mean it’s, tough as nails. I flipped it cartwheeled it. As you can see here, the body here in the back is quite damaged from landing upside down uh, but this truck guys it’s a great little basher, it’s, really fun to drive, has a lot of power for what it is.
Has bigger. Uh beefier tires uh than the big rock. The granite is just a beast of a truck man. It has a shorter chassis than the uh big rock and uh it’s. Just really fast out of the box, guys does willie’s on command it’s excellent on the ramp. Does back flips like nothing, um that’s, just a whole lot of fun to drive guys and just to show you guys what i mean as far as the size comparisons. We have the granite and the big rock side by side, and you can kind of get a an idea of the difference in tire between the two. These tires are a lot thinner than the granite tires. Also, the chassis will give you guys a better idea of the difference in size between the big rock and the granite again guys. The granite doesn’t traction roll as much as the big rock does um. I haven’t really seen any bad characteristics as far as how it drives um. I can’t really think of anything bad about it to say really to be honest, i like it a lot guys it’s taking a beating all these cars have taken. You know quite a beating off the ramp on the road and then the case of the granite i haven’t broken apart on it. Yet the only thing i have damage on this truck, as you well may know by now, is the back of the body here and that’s from landon wrong off the ramp, but other than that guys.
I really like the granite it’s a beast of a truck. You can’t really ask for more and at the price point i really like the granite. Next up guys, we have the typhon Music Applause Music, all right guys! This one right here is pretty much my favorite right now my go to uh when i want to just bash and jump off the ramp and have a good time. Uh i’m really liking the typhoon, guys it’s very, very durable to be a buggy um, usually buggies. Uh break pretty easy, especially because of the fact you have the exposed front end and the exposed back end here, but the typhoon guys yet again, like all these other vehicles, has proved to be very, very durable. It does have these plastic guards on top of your shocks. Just in case you do land upside down. That’Ll give you that extra added protection on the shock tower and the shock tops here. It’S fast out of the box, guys handles really really well on the street. Steering with this one right out of the box was really good. I could pretty much just give it throttle and it would drive straight down. The street um jumps really really well on the ramps, guys real easy to control it’s like a lawn dart, like i said in my other video, it just goes right smoothly over the ramp and it shoots out. I mean you can get some. You can send this one guys.
I mean this. One will go far on the ramp. I’M really liking. It it’s one of my favorites out of this 3s line. It does do willys um handles really good uh in turns. I haven’t really traction rolled it at all. That i can remember um, you know it’s low to the ground so and it’s kind of got that wide stance, and then i just like the overall appearance of it. Guys i mean the wing in the back is pretty sweet and just overall performance on this vehicle. Guys is great it’s spot on. I love it. If you can get your hands on one of the typings, guys i’ll say: go get it i’m. Actually, i actually like this vehicle so much that i’m, considering getting the 6s version of it and again i can’t really think of any negatives i have for this vehicle uh. I haven’t found any yet guys, probably ran 10 15 packs through this uh car. Already haven’t experienced any kind of issues at all performance, wise or durability, wise, so yeah guys. This is this is definitely my favorite. Next up guys, we have the arma sentinel, 4×4 3s blx, Music, Music, all right guys, we’re at the scent now um. I, like the scent don’t, get me wrong: it’s, a good truck but it’s, probably my least favorite out of the whole 3s line um. I have a few reasons for that. First of all, let me get this out of the way it’s durable, just like the other cars in the 3s line, no performance issues as far as electronics or any parts, or anything like that, everything’s good out of the box.
It is fast, i believe we we did do a speed run on this one on the maiden, and i think we got 46 miles an hour. I own a traxxas uh, slash ultimate, i i know how uh short course: trucks behave, especially when it’s windy outside so i’m, not going to knock this truck for having the same issue, but with these short course, trucks guys when it’s windy outside or you’re going real Fast uh, this body does tend to parachute and it can cause issues. I mean i’ve, had this thing, flip upside down and slide down the street. You know because it went up into a willy and it just caught air, and just i lost control that’s, not the fault of this truck, in particular all mostly all short course trucks have that issue. I mean it’s just the nature of the beast when it comes to short force trucks, so i’m, not knocking it for that it does willy not on command, but it will bust a willy every now and then it’s okay on the ramp again, the wind factor factors Into the performance on the ramp, i mean i mean if it’s, if you catch wind, it just makes you land wrong, uh, so that’s an issue again, it’s, not the fault of this truck, in particular all short course. Trucks are like that, so i may cut some holes in the body somewhere to get some air flow going through there to try to lessen that uh.
Also, it just needs, i don’t know definitely needs different tires on it, because i want to be able to do backflips with this truck. It is possible. I have seen videos on it. Um, i think what’s gon na have to happen, though, is we’re gon na have to get some uh bigger tires, raise the body up, of course, and probably throw a new pinion gear in there. Maybe possibly um we’ll see i’m going to do a little bit more of experimentation with this vehicle and see what i can do to improve the handling and, like i said, maybe modify this body a little bit because i just want to be able to ramp jump. It and i want to be able to bash it. The way i want to you know what i mean guys. You know how you you get a vehicle and you want to personalize it to your taste and you want it to drive the way you want to drive that’s kind of how i feel with this vehicle i feel like it does, need a little a little bit Of fine tuning a little bit of of a personal touch, you know, as for right now, it’s it’s, a fast truck it’s fun to drive it’s, just not my favorite, so i guess we’ll leave it at that guys. I just want to say that all these uh trucks are featured on the channel. They all have run videos, they all have made and run videos and unboxings if you’re interested in any of that – and you think you may want a little more information on each truck feel free to browse through the channel and uh.
If i missed something, maybe you’ll find it there. Also, if you have any questions or if or you want to, you know, give your opinion on what your uh favorite truck is in the lineup feel free to leave comments in the comment section and now on to the final truck we have in the 3s lineup The long awaited all new arma vortex Music, one Music, all right guys. This is the uh all new arma vortex 4×4 3s blx and i don’t have a lot of experience with it. Yet i’ve only ran it twice: um also we did the unboxing and the maiden just released the maiden. So if you missed that go ahead and check that out, um but yeah guys the vortex again durable, i flipped it tumbled it off the ramp a few times. We did cartwheel it a few times nosedive it a few times and again, durable, no worries, no breakages uh we did do a speed run on the maiden run. Guys 53 miles an hour is what we topped out at and that’s stock that’s with the stock gearing this kit does come with an optional uh speed pinion, so we will be doing another uh speed run with this uh truck we’ll change out that opinion and see What kind of speeds we can get um, but yeah 53 miles an hour out of the box guys i mean that that’s pretty fast for a truck like this. Oh, i was.
I was really impressed with that. The tires on here guys, if you notice they’re kind of a harder compound they handle good on the street as well. As you know, the grass on the ramp, so the tires are real good. I like the tires um. Of course, we have the new uh roof plates here, skid plates to protect the top of your roof. There i’m, hoping that all the other uh cars and trucks that arma comes out with have this feature also it does have the integrated wing on the body here. I kind of like that then again, i kind of don’t, because uh i’m, hoping that with you know, when you land and with time, if you land on this i’m, hoping that it’s tough enough to where it won’t break off the body. But as far as the way it drives guys, i really like it it’s really fast and i think it’s going to be good competition for the wrestler, 4×4 vxl, they’re kind of the same length and the same size. This one seems a little bit lower to the ground. It could just be because of the body where this body is shaped, i mean, but for the most part, uh they’re pretty much the same size. So i can’t wait to uh test these guys out again against each other and see how they do and then we’ll get another shot right here: side by side, the vortex and the 4×4 wrestler overall guys.
I got ta say that i’m happy with the arma 3s line. I mean they’ve been killing it lately, and every car they come out with just gets better and better. Also too. This one here has a different radio that gives you battery telemetry and also has the optional slot for the uh, the module which i’ll be purchasing pretty soon just to try this out that uh can be used with their app with arma’s app to get vehicle telemetry. So we’ll be testing that out as well. Hopefully i answered some of you guys questions and gave you a little insight as to why i like these trucks.
