70+ MPH Eye Candy

Arrma has just announced a gorgeous addition to their 1/8th scale 4wd bashers, and this one looks quite menacing! The all new ARRMA 1/8 Talion 6S BLX rolls on tall dBoots Katar tires and Black Turbo Fan wheels. The body is very low profile, giving this Talion an exceptionally aggressive stance. Designed for speeds in excess of 70 MPH, the ARRMA 1/8 Talion 6S BLX comes with a 150 amp ESC, 2050Kv brushless motor with etched aluminum finned motor can for efficient heat dissipation, gold connectors, and a 13T and 20T pinion. There's a number of battery options with this rig, from a pair of 2s or 3s 5000mAh LiPos in series, to a single LiPo setup for 4s or 6s packs. The retail price is set at $499.99 and it's scheduled for delivery in early October.

Lots of nice to see changes here. I don't' see this as important an update as the v2 electronics were, but still very nice to see them listening to the fans. I was considering buying the plastics from the Outcast for my V1 Typhon, but now I think I will hold of and get these. Better servo mount is a very welcome change.

I wonder if the "new low profile" shock towers are really new, or just the Typhon towers...

Oh, and the "Wheels Designed for On-Road Speed as well as Offroading" - truggy tires generally balloon bad over about 50mph, I wonder if these are belted?
