network.com, and today we have an exclusive unboxing of the brand new arma vortex 4×4. jetzt, Natürlich, this is arma’s. Newest 1, 10 Fähigkeit, vier Rad, drive electric stadium truck now in this video. We will be checking out exactly what comes inside the box. Take our first look at the brand new 4 Rad, drive vortex, compare it to a few different vehicles. I have here at the network and finally go over all the specs that this new rtr comes with. Starting off with some of the specs on the box, the first glaring number is 60 plus miles per hour. das, Natürlich, is four wheel drive. It is one of arma’s 3s lineup of vehicles, so it does have a brushless system installed, es ist, fully ready to run as long as you add your own battery and it comes with a whole lineup of cool features from spectrum firma and has active vehicle control. Better known as avc now what’s so cool about their 3s line of vehicles is it’s, all modular, so everything kind of comes out in big chunks versus taking 56 screws out just to get to your slipper clutch. jetzt, with that, arma has done their homework and put metal in all of the right places, including all of the gears, as you would expect, from a rc in 2021, you get ball bearings throughout metal, bevel gears and pinions, Eine 2.4 gigahertz radio system and brushless power From spectrum there are three color ways available for the vortex 4×4, including red purple and green.
I got the purple one but i’m, just gon na call it blue because, as you may know, i am color blind and that purple does look like blue to me before. We get to the star of the show let’s take a look at some of the supplement items that come inside the box, starting with a whole mess of shock spacers some extra body clip tie downs first time, i’ve seen that with an arma a 20 tooth speed. Pinion, Eine 2.0 Und 2.5 hex wrench, a semi automatic wheel, wrench a couple of manuals regarding your new vortex 4×4 Und schließlich, the spectrum dx3 2.4 gigahertz remote. The dx3 is a pretty decent, rtr remote and has all the features that you’d want and a starter radio, including channel, reversing for steering and throttle a throttle limit that’ll. Actually let you set it down. If you hand this over to a child or someone that’s not quite experienced with rc your different dials on the side here for the abc or steering rate, the brake rate, steering trim and throttle trim, you have a bind connect button. A third channel button here by the trigger and a great foam wheel that you don’t always get in an rtr radio. This does operate on four double a batteries that you do need to supply yourself and there it is the arma vortex, 4×4. jetzt, Natürlich, Dies ist ein 1 10 Skala, so it’s definitely a smaller size than everything that we’ve been used to lately from like the 1, 8.
1. 7. 1 6 scale cars from arma, but i definitely appreciate this size now. One of the biggest growing movements in rc lately has been four wheel: drive stadium trucks, especially down in the 110 skill size, we’ve. Seen, Natürlich, the rustler from traxxas techno released their et410 a while back all loosely based on stadium trucks or 1 10 skill truckies, and just to give you guys a size comparison let’s get that out of the way with some of the cars i have here At the network, Eine 1 8 Skala, buggy a 10 Skala, crawler a 10 Skala, buggy a 2.2 Rock Racer, Eine 1 7 Fähigkeit, short course truck and finally, Eine 124 Skala. Crawler. Now that you know the size of this thing, let’s dive deep into how well arma spec this vortex out, starting with the wheels and tires. Dies sind 2.8 inch wheels, very reminiscent of a method 101 wheel and the tires are the katars which i believe are a scaled down version of the tires found on the arm italian. These are one of my favorite tires from that generation of vehicles, and i think they’ll do quite well on the vortex. The body has a lot of features, Natürlich, borrowed from some of these 6s lineup, including a nice front. Bumper that’s mounted to the chassis body pins that have those lovely attached, lanyards, roof skids from molded plastic, just to save your body, a little bit longer and finally, a heavy downforce wing towards the rear, also from molded plastic.
This should last pretty long moving to the rear. We get a rear bumper attached to the chassis, as well as a wheelie bar. This thing can definitely be a little nose happy. This will keep you down and keep you bashing a little bit longer. I also love all the hidden little messages right here: don’t just bash blast, hidden behind the rear wing and, Natürlich, they’re great license plates. They always put on these things, vortex, Natürlich, with the three as the letter e pulling the body off, you can definitely see the inner workings of the new vortex 4×4. Starting on the front. We do have plastic bodied oil filled shocks with a pretty decent dampen rate right here they are adjustable with the plastic clips, that’s included in the supplement bag. You do have plastic universal drive, shafts on all four corners and all of the adjustable turn buckles are made from steel with a plastic pivot ball moving down the center of the vehicle. We do have a plastic center drive shaft that we’ve seen on a lot of the other 3s vehicles that does rotate on the center right there and it seems to be pretty stout for this size of vehicle that mounts directly up to the slipper clutch assembly. In the transmission and on back to the rear differential, the rear has much of the same with slightly longer oil filled, Schocks, plastic, universal drive, shafts and steel, turnbuckles flipping it to the bottom side.
You can see how modular the chassis is. Just with a few screws. You can remove the entire front clip or the entire rear clip. You can also check out how stout the a arms are. These are pretty thick considering this is a smaller 1 10 scale vehicle. Other cool features that we’ve seen on some of the other 3s lineup of vehicles from arma are very stout shock towers. Awesome body mounts lots of attention to keeping dirt out of your vehicle, including these huge side guards for the chassis guards for the shocks velcro straps. For the battery and lots of honeycombing inside the chassis just to keep it nice and durable, starting in the front, electronics wise, we have a waterproof combo throughout this vehicle. Also, Ja, Es ist 100 Wasserdicht. It is not a submarine dive. The boat dive the boat like our depth, 300 Meter – it is waterproof, starting with the spm 651 Servo. This has 101 ounce inches of torque at 6. Volts has metal. Gears should do well for an rtr servo. Next is the firma 100 amp smart esc? This is capable of either 2s or 3s lipo and comes with a pre installed ic5 connector for spectrum’s smart series of batteries. Now it is also ec5 compatible. You just wouldn’t have the smart feature. Schließlich, you do have the spectrum firma 3660 3200 kv brushless sensorless motor with the full heatsink and additional cooling fan. So not only do you have a fan on the esc, you also have a fan on the motor.
Well guys. That is my first look at the brand new arma vortex 4×4, but i’d like to pose a question to you guys. Do you like one tenth skill or one 8th skill for rc post your thoughts down in the comments section below with that? I cannot wait to drive this thing, it’s going to be fun. I like smaller vehicles, i don’t like the tiny ones, but i do like some of the smaller 1 10 Waagenfahrzeuge.
