Keeping with their other recent model updates, ARRMA has released details for their 2018 Senton 6S BLX 1/10-scale short course truck. Along with an updated body design, there are a handful of few tweaks and adjustments under the hood.
Starting off with visuals, the body of the new-year Senton 6S has received a few modifications to make it a leaner, meaner machine. Gone are the side-mounted number plates, with the truck sporting a slightly boxier front-end and cleaner bed layout.
The rear spoiler is still available, and a darker green and black graphics scheme adorns the entire lid.
Underneath that aggressive short course truck body are a few other tweaks and treats. Revised, adjustable shocks (with 4mm shafts) help the truck travel over any type of terrain and cushion landings after big-air jump attempts.
This short course truck also shares the same battery tray and receiver box design as the Outcast 6S stunt truck, giving you even more “new” mixed in with this tested SCT.
Keeping the chassis strong, this new truck utilizes a stiffer servo mount and stronger bulkheads plus front and rear chassis braces.
The electronic components on the Senton 6S BLX are waterproof, including the steering servo. It would seem the only thing stopping the fun this truck can create is your battery’s charge.
