Looks like ARRMA is at it again with a new 1/8 vehicle! This beast is the ARRMA Nero BLX Monster Truck. ARRMA and Hobbico have been teasing their RCBrain site, and this vehicle looks like it will be the first to have the RCBrain Differentials. These new diffs allow you to choose the type of mode you want them in from the radio. The modes are Drift, Wheelie, Climb or Blast, and they can be chosen on the fly while you are out bashing for whatever type of surface you happen to be on. Just like many of their previous 1/8 vehicles, this will be a 6s version.
Other interesting additions to their new MT are the lay-down shocks, beefy roll cage, and the inclusion of the XT-90 battery connectors. The Nero will come in two versions, one with smart diffs and one without.
* Wheelbase- 14.88″
* Length- 21.85″
