Helion Animus 18TR

The second Animus platform derivative (after the Animus 18SC), the 18TR continues the next generation of 1/18th scale performance with an unprecedented set of features and value. The premise behind the Animus is to offer something revolutionary: value AND performance. Helion R/C design engineers optimized the Animus platform for the latest generation of bashers and enthusiasts.

As with its sister 18SC, the use of gear differentials and a robust shaft based, ball bearing supported, gear drivetrain reduces maintenance requirements, improves efficiency and performance without compromising value. With the advent and inclusion of crystal-less 2.4 GHz radio technology in the Animus, R/C bashers and enthusiasts can enjoy using their cars alongside one another instead of worrying about changing or having to buy extra crystals. With a 370 sized brushed motor and high performance 1,100 mAh NiMH battery included, the Animus 18TR is equipped to not disappoint with speeds topping 20mph!
