Default New Arrma 4x4 blx 4s Advice

Hi
ordered the new Arrma outcast 4x4 blx 4s bronze truck. I will be using it on 3s 3000mah 15c battery for now. How long is the run time on these? I have heard they are really sturdy but a few reporting broken arms or leaky shocks. Anyone have one? What upgrades would you recommend?

Welcome to the addiction, I mean hobby.

Runtime will vary depending on how and where you drive. Ballpark would be 15-25 minutes.

Upgrades are subjective. For some it’s all about upgrades. Easy to get caught up. I’m a minimalist with upgrades. Takes more then breaking something once or twice before I’m considering it.

Arrma trucks have a good reputation. I’ve personally had mixed experience with two of their trucks.

15c battery? That is like for a transmitter. The first thing I would is upgrade the battery to something at least 40c.

Wow, I missed the battery size somehow. Yeah. Definitely going to want to change battery
