The Tetra 1/18 Story
The 1/18 Tetra entered the RC scene in September of 2019. With a stealth-like entrance, there were no expectations from consumers except for what they saw – amazing value for an array of features seldom seen in RC, especially in a 1/18 platform. The initial visual impressions fostered huge intrigue and just a few days of transit time and a quick charge of the battery, consumers were ranting and raving about the performance and the overall fun factor. The continued success of the platform keeps building a strong customer base years into the release.
The Tetra 4x4 boasts 4-wheel drive through a stout drivetrain system powered by an oversized 180 size motor. A strong, waterproof mini servo navigates the platform with ease. A water-resistant 2-in-1 ESC/receiver that powers 2 LED lights on the K series and 9 LED lights on the X series delivers smooth control of the oversized 60 turn brushed motor. Scale looking wheels wrapped in soft rubber compound all-terrain tires propel the 4x4 up the steepest of climbs and slickest of surfaces with ease. To handle those climbs and all the bumps along the way, the Tetra includes fluid-filled/alloy shock bodies combined with progressive adjustable coil springs. The platform is topped off with a 7.4V 700mah Li-ION battery providing over 30 minutes of run time per charge.
