TLR Tuned ARRMA Typhon Roller: Unboxing, Electronics Installation, & Quick Run
ARRMA teamed up with Team Losi Racing (TLR) to bring us this 1/8th scale race ready TLR Tuned Typhon roller. The first wow factor is the paint job on this beauty. Once you can stop staring at the paint scheme, you quickly notice the TLR Tuned 7075 T6 aluminum anodized shock towers. They are thick and have a lot of adjustability for your shock setup. Below those are the adjustable suspension hangers that have many different inserts (in the box) that you can swap out to tune it for the driving conditions.

The tires are new multi-terrain DBOOTS Exabyte race compound tires. Taking off the top reveals the TLR Tuned 7075 T6 chassis and steering rack. The Typhon was a pretty well built RTR vehicle in the past and all these upgrades take the TLR Tuned version to the next level.
I am speculating and guessing that the TLR Tuned version is meant to be an offering for the Typhon that is similar to the EXB versions of their other vehicles. With the Typhon, however, they made it strong enough to bash, but tunable enough to race or turn into the crazy high speed vehicle we see people convert Typhons into.
I can't wait to try new electronics in this and see how we can get it to perform. Currently I put in electronics I had with me at Horizon RC Fest in my LMT parts bin. They aren't a perfect setup for a race buggy, but it will get us on the track.
I'll post affiliate links to what I used and some specs from the product page below.
