Speed Meets Scale with ARRMA's 1/8 Mojave 4x4 4S BLX Desert Truck

By: Tim Gluth

Blasting over dunes, floating over ripples, or just kicking up dirt, ARRMA's latest release looks like it can do it all. The 1/8-scale ARRMA Mojave 4x4 4S BLX Desert Truck turns the dial up on performance as well as appearance.

This surprisingly detailed off-road R/C truck appears to pack quite a punch, thanks to its Spektrum Firma 3668 2400KV brushless motor and Spektrum Firma 120A Smart Brushless ESC that's capable of handling up to 4S LiPo power.

On the surface, ARRMA has outfitted this truck with a polycarbonate body that's loaded with scale details such as an injection-molded grille, roof skid bars, and an off-road-inspired body cage. The 1/8 Mojave 4x4 4S BLX features two available color options; blue and white.

Under the hood, this truck is all business with three gear differentials: brushless power plant, composite chassis, oil-filled shocks, and 2.4" dBoots tires. If you're a fan of off-road desert truck racing, this machine appears to check several boxes in style and performance.
