Built to thrill

Rugged Dakar truck styling atop the proven all-weather Animus platform makes the 18DT something of a must-have ready-to-run off-roader.

Product Description

When it comes to choosing an off-road vehicle, it pays to buy a product with a proven track record – a car with a quality and pedigree that can be measured in its bloodline. The Animus 18DT is just such a product and in this, its latest iteration, the popular 1/18th scale off-roader is treated to sturdy Dakar truck styling (in a choice of red or blue) and a top speed in excess of 20 mph.

Dependable all-terrain handling is, of course, an expected attribute of the Animus 4WD series and in this respect the 18DT offers no exception. It’s a crucial feature that goes hand-in-hand with other hereditary characteristics such as an all-weather proportional electronic speed controller, robust 370 brushed motor, high-performance 1100mAh NiMH battery, oil-filled bladder-top shocks, twin ball-raced heavy-duty differentials and, significantly, high-grip, low-wear tires that keep you hooked to a multitude of surfaces. In short, it’s a convenient, quality, ready-to-run vehicle that you’ll love to own and long to drive, not least for the locked-in feel and dependability of the supplied IKONNIK SR2 rate-equipped 2.4GHz radio.
