Arrma Nero - 05.23.2016, 04:46 PM

This is a review of the Arrma Nero 1/8 monster truck by rccaraction.com, and it looks fantastic! Especially the remote diff locking feature...

Pretty interesting truck there. Looks like a mix of the Revo and Savage with the Summit locking diffs. I like the looks and the features.

WOW! That thing is radical and tough looking. I like it. I like the three point rear suspension and the easy access diffs. Aluminium in all the right places. I almost want one.


The only thing stopping me is that it is not a truggy lol. Thats not a big deal though, I guess not everything has to be buggy based.

That truck is pretty interesting. Do you guys think that's a castle esc and motor rebranded?

Hi,

I think the ESC is a Hobbywing Max8 or Max6. The new Arrma V2 Cars have a Motor which look very similar to a HW EzRun 4274 but I'm not sure if the Nero Motor is a HW Motor too.

I totally agree that this is a cross between the summit(which is basically a Revo) and a Savage, but I think it is better than than both. I mean we will have to wait and see what happens.

The thing I am noticing now is how short the motor is. Does it have to be that short. Is there room for a bigger motor. If not a new chassis will have to be introduced by the likes of FLM which allows for a longer motor. This thing must be heavy.

Another thing. If that motor is not sensored I think it should be to go along with the "Brain" idea. Would be awesome to pair this up with a sensored MMX and the future sensored motors from Castle.

Zach.

If you did it would just leak out of the diff locking pin holes. The locking pins go threw the diff cup and into the spider gear on that side when the locker is engaged. So you basically have to choose between grease filled diff and locked diff. I think I'll stick with silicone oil filled sealed diffs, I'm sure I could get a pretty damn good compromise with the right weight oil that nobody would really notice the difference.

I believe that there is a non diff brain version that is $100 cheaper. You should at least be able to add oil to those diffs.

If that big O ring goes behind the side gear with the pins, then it's possible

Edit:, just looked at the exploded view, that large seal goes behind the pined side gear of the diff

Page 4 shows the seal and where it goes


Work because i gotta, play because i wanna

People here hate Nitro, I love it. I start it, run it about 50 ft from me and it dies, I go after it. Perfect exercise
