ARRMA MOJAVE OVERVIEW

The ARRMA MOJAVE 6S BLX comes with all the muscle it needs, with the 2050Kv brushless motor and 4S/6S brushless ESC providing the potential for competition-crushing speeds.

The chassis is machined from anodized aluminum and has been reinforced with a center brace for maximum durability, while bumpers and nerf bars supply impact protection on all sides. Equipped with an independent suspension with bump-soaking oil-filled shocks, the truck handles equally well over both rugged and well-traveled tracks.

The drivetrain sports a heavy-duty, dependable design, featuring steel driveshafts, metal gears, and all-metal diff outdrives. It’s ready to take full advantage of the brushless power system’s potential. The MOJAVE Desert Truck is incredibly fast right out of the box. Use a 6S LiPo with the included optional pinion gear and the result is 60+ MPH speed. The potential is enough to crush any competitor. A sliding mount allows for quick and easy access to the motor and the center diff can be removed for maintenance by taking out just four bolts.

Multi-terrain dBoots tires on multi split-spoke wheels give your MOJAVE 6S BLX Desert Truck the grip to get up, over, or through anything in your way. A painted and decaled desert truck body, color-coordinated roll cage and roof rails, and even a detailed cockpit are all incorporated to give this kit a dynamic and aggressive appearance.

The ready-to-run ARRMA MOJAVE Desert Truck comes with a Spektrum STX2 2.4GHz radio whose lightweight, comfortable design is ideal for long bashing sessions. The ergonomic steering wheel gives you precise control, and easily adjustable trim dials make it easy to tune the handling to your personal touch.

Summary

The Arrma Mojave is the first 1/7 scale RC Arrma has come out with. This thing is an absolute beast. It is fast and durable. On jumps it flies through the air and handles great, very controlable. I like to run 6s 5000mah 60c LiPo it is a blast on all terrain. Wheather you are running on ashphault or through the backyard, 6s LiPo will keep you smiling with excitement the whole time.
