We are very excited to present the first of six exclusive articles that will give you the chance to explore the 2013 range of awesome ARRMA off-road vehicles. Designed to be fast and designed to be tough, ARRMA cars are designed with speed and strength as their core features. We begin our series with the ARRMA RAIDER Desert Buggy. Styled with all the striking looks of a full-scale sand blasting desert racer, the ARRMA RAIDER is at home thrashing through mud and dirt at your local park, and riding the whoops and jumps at your local BMX track.
The ARRMA RAIDER is a Ready to Run 1/10 electric powered Desert Buggy that is available in two awesome variants. The BLX Brushless version for heart-thumping high-speed exhilaration and the MEGA Brushed version for amazing torque and incredible efficiency. Both cars fire you into the off-road bashing action, straight from the box, with the included waterproof ESC and high-torque steering servo. Teamed with the advanced technology of the ARRMA 2.4Ghz radio transmitter, the ARRMA RAIDER is ready to attack all terrains and take on the most extreme off-road action.
