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 over the past year led to a new effort by coming up with something with more capability and a little twist but still incorporate 90% of all the same parts making for an easy sell to existing customers. We introduce to you the 1/18 Tetra 6x6 in X and K Series trims and available in a total of 6 different color options.
The 6x6 boasts 6-wheel drive action for unparalleled climbing ability. A strong, waterproof mini servo navigates the elongated 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 6x6 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.
