Truggies have slowly transformed into the go-to machine for enthusiasts to bash because of their performance handling and powerful nature.
Monster trucks still hold a place for many drivers too, who prefer their massive size and aggressive nature. Their creation is the Kraton and this machine is packed with all sorts of performance styling and brute strength and topped off with a power system that will have the tires screaming for mercy as they grow under acceleration. After a quick walk around, the switches were turned on and the Kraton dropped on the loose dirt for the start of the fun session.
The rutted terrain did its best to upset the truck, but the handling was impressive. There were rocks that the truck hit that I was cer- tain would have ripped a wheel and arm from the truck, but it launched up and over the rocks and continued a forward path, the truck was rather easy to control under such power. Back and forth on the trail, I was grabbing as much throttle as I could, spraying dirt all over and kicking up pebbles. There was always plenty of power on tap and I have to say it had more power than I expected from an RTR.
But the speed runs were not the only area where the Kraton impressed me. Off jumps, the truck is a beast. It hits the jump hard and springs off the face, quickly heading for maximum altitude.
Because of the crazy power behind the drivline, you have to monitor your throttle finger while the Kraton is in flight. Too much power and the tires will grow, over-rotating the truck. The over rotation can be cool for back-flips, but grow your confidence before attempting. The first few crazy jumps I tried resulted in the Kraton landing on its lid, but with the inner protective tower, the electronics were safe.
This truck turns! Such a large beast and so powerful, you think turning may be an issue.
But the Kraton has excellent steering throw, so off power the turning radius is right on par with many racing truggies on the market. The one that burnt into our minds was a huge arcing berm on the trail, we were able to rip the Kraton through the turn at full throttle and the truck carved the turn easily while sand and dirt sprayed off the wheels.
It was flat out too cool. The truck is bulky, its aluminum is thick and it has a protective center tower, so we had no problem just beating on this truck. After lots of tumbles, no broken arms or bent aluminum, the large wing and soft tires soaked up a lot of the rough landings off of big jumps or when we hit big rocks.
A lot of jump landings required full throttle taps to pull out of landings. There were no issues to report on the driveline either other than we did eject a pinion gear once. Luckily it landed in plain sight and we bolted it back to the motor and it was back on the trails in just a few minutes. But the incidents were few. The rear block gets a work out, so you might want to consider upgrading to an aluminum block for better durability. If you notice the stock bones wearing, this should be your replacement.By BladeyMay 24, in General - Electric.
Has anyone got these models or have experienced Arrma and Traxxas, which do you think is the better option? On the Arrma forums there are mutterings that they've skimped a little on the v4.
TBR XV4 Front Bumper - ARRMA Talion 6S BLX
Maybe they kept improving it until the v3 and then started to save money and make more profit on the v4? Or maybe I'm too cynical?
They're good but took plenty of upgrades to make them more bash proof. Reading up on the E-Revo it costs more and seems to break easier than the Kraton but that's hearsay rather than my own experience. All my stuff has been bought used but I think Traxxas is an ethically questionable company I'd rather my money went elsewhere. Im a fairly big fan of Traxxas and think the E-Revo 2. Its much much much better than the previous one and only really requires the rear chassis brace and some alloy rod ends on the shocks.
Shock Limiting straps seem to be a popular mod too. A servo is probably a good upgrade too but I think that's the case for most RTR's. In fact I believe you could probably get the Arrma, some lips and a charger for the same price as the E-Revo 2. Ive zero experience with the Arrma, Ive never even seen one in the flesh, but that would be my opinion.
Can't say it was anywhere specific. Just kinda got the feeling a few folk didn't like the v4s. Not just coz of the cheaper radio gear but in general. Theres the chassis brace, I believe the V3 had an issue with chassis bending in extreme cases, brace should prevent that and was cheaper than a thicker chassis I guess.
Also a more traditional 2 piece motor mount. Think the wing and wing mount are thicker and theyve done something to stop the pillow balls pulling out of the a arms. Theres also a better servo saver. Probably missed a few things.
Get a Kraton V3. Upgrades on v4 include sliding motor mount ,non pop off steering ball joints, center brace, new tyres, new design body, better diffs with extra shims inside, new servo saver design.Combine some top spec 3S batteries for 6S power, and easy recharging with a dual charger to charge both at once.
Now comes complete with the 2. Bashing is a "go" even through mud and snow, thanks to waterproof electronics. Add your favorite 4S or 6S LiPo battery and watch this monster truck smash your speed expectations, especially when running with the optional recommended pinion gear. The shocks are mounted on black-anodized aluminum towers. A high downforce wing helps keep the vehicle grounded. Everything contributes to confident control and responsive handling at thrilling high speeds.
A center body support and new aluminum center brace plus composite chassis side pods add more strength. All-metal diff outdrives and gearbox internals plus durable steel driveshafts provide a reliable, heavy-duty drivetrain that holds up to extreme, high-speed bashing.
A new "never loose" aluminum steering servo saver and "never pop" ball ends supply more precision, reliability and confidence. A sliding mount allows quick, hassle-free motor access. The center diff is easy to reach and can be removed by taking out just seven bolts. The only required items are a 4S or 6S LiPo battery, compatible charger, safe charging bag, and 4 x AA transmitter batteries.

While the vehicle came out a few months ago, they've been on backorder and we were unable to get our hands on one. Until now. Will the Kraton stand up to the stiff competition? That's what we're here to find out. Personally, I like the blue body they released internationally a bit better than the green one available in the US, but otherwise, the body is aggressive-looking and has plenty of detail without being too busy.
The tires are nice and soft and should be quite grippy. Or at least, very similar. I noticed the tires were very well glued - there were no spots missed. Quality job. Taking the body off reveals the first stand-out feature: a removable plastic rollbar. It appears to help the body keep its shape and lessen the blow to the chassis in the event of an upside-down landing. We'll see how well that holds up; it looks sturdy, but who knows? Other stand out features include red-anodized, aluminum, threaded-body shocks, sway bars on the front and rear of the vehicle, a center differential, steel dogbones in the rear and steel CVDs in the front.
This truck is well-equipped and has features not seen on other trucks at a higher price point. It's also rated for up to 6S operation, though we won't be running that high in this review; we're keeping it at 4S.
The motor is rated at kv, a little lower than the Mamba Monster, which I think is a good thing. A lower kv rating means more torque, and torque is essential for these kinds of trucks. Plus, you can always gear it up if you want more speed.
The motor is held in place with a red-anodized aluminum motor mount, would should help to both keep it in place and also dissipate some heat. Most vehicles require you to make your own jumper if you want to do that.
I also love the thought that went into designing the battery tray for those that did want to run two packs; the little feet are designed to offset the two batteries, preventing the wires from getting pinched should the packs try to move.
Most of the reviews I've done have had some of these little touches, and I'm pleased to find some on the Kraton as well. The steering servo probably bears some mention.
It's a strong one, weighing in at oz-in of torque. And it's metal geared, something I wish Traxxas' servos would become. Considering this truck only runs a single steering servo, this little guy seems up to the job. Two would probably be overkill anyway. But looks can be deceiving, and while this servo looks good on paper, our experiences later didn't paint as nice a picture.
Oh, and it doesn't seem like a feature so much as a basic requirement, but all the electronics are waterproof.Please Log in to receive a notification when this item arrives in stock.
