Panda Hobby likes making small things, well, BIG! The Tetra 1:24 w/portal axles packs a phenomenal number of features making it unparalleled to even many 1:10 scale platforms. The market thrives on scale detail and durability, so why not give an abundance of it, right from the start.
Portal Axles coupled with Metal Worm Gears
The heart of the Tetra 1/24 is the portal axles. Portal axles provide an abundance of ground clearance, and give a scale detail that is found more commonly in 1/10 rigs. In creating the portals, the desire was to have a consistent feel ascending and descending all types of terrain, and the metal worm gear drive system gives the same exact driving experience in either direction, and on 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 8 LED’s – 4 front and 4 rear facing lights. The system is controlled from the transmitter, featuring four distinct light settings – off, solid, slow flash, and strobe. The brake input on the transmitter activates the white reverse lights, while turning left or right activates the blinkers. The Tetra 1/24 is ready to get the party started both day and night.
Magnetic Body Mounts
Never need or lose a body clip again. The magnetic front body mounts complete with rear hinge make accessing the battery and anything else simple, with just the flick of a finger.
Electrified Body Mounts
Wait, what? Yep, electrified magnetic body mounts. In addition to magnetic body mounts, the power to the lights from the ESC travels through the magnetic mounts, effectively making them the plug/unplug the lights from the chassis to the body. Complete freedom to remove the battery without wires getting in the way. Complete freedom to work on your vehicle without needing to remove the wires from the ESC.
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 wheels, black oxide c-channel metal chassis rails, and a bunch of molded accessories on the X Series body, including a full spare are all a part of the 1/24th package. It’s small, it’s capable, it’s feature packed and it’s fun!
