THE ARRMA Granite BLX RTR Monster Truck Review
The brushed version of the ARRMA Granite was a big hit among the bashing crowd, it was tough as nails, it drove well, and it was affordable. ARRMA has upped the ante with the new Granite BLX. The BLX comes with big brushless power and is fully waterproof. Does the Granite BLX live up to the rep of the former brushed version? Click the “Read More” button to find out…
The first generation of vehicles from ARRMA went over rather well. As a whole, they were good bash machines, so good that the Granite won our 2wd Monster Truck Shootout and our “Bash Vehicle of the Year” in 2012.
The latest machines from ARRMA are the brushless powered BLX line-up. Look below to see what it looks like when you crack the box open on a brand new Granite BLX. You might notice the BigSquidRC logo printed on the box commemorating the Granite winning our “Basher of the Year” award. You also might notice in the unboxing pictures the sharp looking red anodized brushless motor, red speed controller, and red waterproof servo.
We’ve been putting our review ARRMA Granite BLX through its paces and our full review goes up Tuesday September 24th. Until then enjoy the unboxing pictures and you can click THIS LINK to learn more about the Granite BLX.
