The Helion Animus 18SC is the next generation of 1/18th scale performance with an unprecedented set of features and value. This project came to life as a cooperative effort between some of the greatest minds in the RC industry and you, our customers. The premise behind the project set to offer you something different, something revolutionary...value AND performance. Helion R/C design engineers optimized the Animus platform for the latest generation of bashers and enthusiasts. 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 now enjoy using their cars alongside one another instead of worrying about changing or having to buy extra crystals. With a 4,200rpm brushed motor and high performance 1,100 mAh NiMH battery included, the Animus is equipped to not disappoint with speeds topping 20mph! Youll never be out of touch with the latest innovations headed your way from Helion RC!

Gaz Durham - 2nd January 2016

Got this for my daughter as a 1st r/c car. Tough little truck for the money took everything we threw at it's battery lasted well to. Outperformed my son's maverick ion truggy and totaly showed up the his brand new FTX surge witch it's main chassis broke with in 5mins of use on the FTX. Would highly recommend this truck for a entry level 1st car. Great fun five stars

Why does my car not move and make a really loud noise?It only moves when I push it but doesn't go as fast as it use to.
Asked by Ryan on 11th September 2016

That sounds like a drivetrain issue. It would be worth stripping down your diffs and geartrain and inspecting for signs of wear, or small stones, etc which may have become trapped.

What battery will fit this truck? Can you recommend one from your store? Is it Dean connector? Thanks
Asked by John Lucas on 28th November 2016

You can use battery RDNA0090 with adapter RDNA0108

Answered by: Ben @ Wheelspin Models

Hi - are there any upgrade parts that can be purchased that would make a significant difference to the performance (ie; gears, battery, bearings?) Thanks, Paul
