OOH! Check out the new monster truck. We have to admit, when we first saw the new ARRMA Granite Voltage Electric 1/10 Ready To Run Monster Truck, we were pretty interested to see what it would do. It has all the markings of being an excellent entry-level monster truck. What makes this stand out from others is that for $349 nz it comes completely ready to run (with the exception of 4 AA batteries for the radio) and it is powered by Li-Ion batteries that are supplied along with a charger. It uses 18650 Li-Ion batteries which is new for Hobby Grade RC’s. What is really cool is you can buy more, up to four more, to install in the truck to increase run times. You can also use standard 7.2V NiMh and 7.4V LiPo packs. The truck has cool design, plush suspension and it’s styling is pretty awesome on top of it all! But does it perform? That’s what this video is about, we show you this MT on the dirt, grass, pavement and even running through water! Is the action ready ARRMA Granite Voltage MT for you? This review should help you decide! (Price includes GST, Import Tax, Shipping & Handling).
Finding Things on our Website
If you want a particular item, click on the magnifying glass in the red tool bar along the top and type in the keywords.
For a more generic search, click on Products in the black tool bar below the title. The Products page has categories listed down the left side, and illustrations of each category over the rest of the page. Clicking on the list will bring up related sub-categories - also brought up as further illustrations. Each of these sub-categories may contain further sub-categories.
We have recently put in some real time updating our inventory which is tied to the website. This was well overdue. Previously, it was possible to click through five times, only to find the dreaded words "not in stock'! Our apologies. It is now our policy to ensure an item is not shown when out of stock - though the occasional blighter still slips through!
We are also aware that half the fun is in the perusing - so we are now entering items so that, if you wish, you can sit down with your preferred beverage and look through all the available possibilities of your preferred type of model (e.g. all the plastic planes) with illustrations showing the box art of all we have regardless of their scale or make. But the options of 'scale' or 'make' shortcuts are still available as they are listed first.
FINDING THE SHOP
We are currently in the basement of the building formerly known as the BNZ centre, 1 Willis Street. (Currently called the AON Insurance building). You can get to us via:
* the escalators to the south end of the building along Willis Street. At the bottom of these escalators, turn sharp left and you will see us, complete with lit up sign.
* the escalators to the north end of the building along Willis Street. At the bottom of these escalators you will see the entrance to J.B. Hi-fi on one side of a corridor, and the entrance to J.B. Games on the other. We are futhur down the corridor between them.
* the lifts from the foyer. Key in B1 on the pad for the lift. When you get out of the lift you will be in the food court. Walk around to the right, then veer to your left, down the corridor with tables either side, and there we are.
* the steps from Victoria Street - these are extremely steep and should only be attempted by the sure footed. The steps at the northern end arrive at the diagonally opposite end of the basement to our shop. The steps at the southern end enable you to head straight ahead, veer round to your left, go down a corridor, and there we are!
