The V2 Version of the Tetra 1/24 is here! With a phenomenal amount of feedback from customers of the V1, we quickly went into action and made over a dozen changes to the 1/24 V2 platform. They include:
- Ball Bearings inside the Transmission
- Revised Link Geometry
- Redesigned Motor Mount
- 1.0" Wheel Package
- Buttery Smooth ESC with Revised Power ports for ease of use
- CVD's up Front
- Revised Steering Geometry
- New Shock Cartridges and Mounts
- 51 Turn Motor for a more Well-Rounded Trail Scaler
Portal Axles and Metal Worm Gears
The heart of the Tetra 1/24 are the portal axles. Portal axles provide an abundance amount of ground clearance and give a scale detail that is found more common in 1/10 rigs but a first for a 1/24 platform. In creating the portals, the desire was to have a consistent feel ascending and descending all types of terrain. This is where the metal worm gear drive system gives the same exact driving experience going up or down different terrain. You control the speed 100% with the throttle going downhill just like you would uphill versus the brake / motor magnets doing the work on your descents.
Light up the Night Sky
The Tetra is also ready to light up the trail. The X series lighting system includes Roof Lights, Front Light Buckets, Rear Brake or Running Light Buckets (user can manually change channel port for preference). The system is controlled from the transmitter that includes four distinct light settings – off, solid, slow flash and strobe. The Tetra 1/24 is ready to get the party started both day and night.
Electrified Body Mounts
Wait, what? Yep, we said electrified magnetic body mounts. In addition to magnetic body mounts, the power to the lights from the ESC travels through the magnetic mounts. The magnets effectively become the plug/unplug feature of the lights from the chassis to the body. Complete freedom to remove the battery without wires getting in the way and no need to remove the wires ever again from the ESC if you're working on your vehicle.
Magnetic Body Mounts
Never need or lose a body clip again. The magnetic front and rear body mounts make accessing the battery and anything else capable with the squeeze of your fingers.
To ready itself for all the detail, the Tetra 1/24 utilizes the same transmission, motor, driveshafts and several other parts from the Tetra 1/18. The oversized 180 motor, driveshafts and transmission brings a durability confidence that rivals anything else in the 1/24 scale category.
Aluminum threaded shock bodies, beadlock wheel, black oxide c-channel metal chassis rails, a bunch of molded accessories on the X Series body including a full size spare tire and hex hardware are all a part of the new 1/24th package. It’s small, it’s capable, it’s feature packed and it’s fun!
