Helion’s added a new high-riding 2WD monster truck to the lineup with brushless power, and their hitting the speed hard–40mph with the included 7-cell NiMH, up to 60mph when you gear up and go 3S LiPo. More pics and official Helion details below.
Intrusion XLRThe Intrusion 10MT XLR 2WD monster truck offers incredible speed, durability, and value unheard of in its class. The LiPo-ready, all-weather Reaktor50 electronic speed controller combines with a Radient 3000mAh 7-cell NiMH rechargeable battery pack and 3000kV Reaktor4 brushless motor to churn out blistering speed in excess of 40mph. If that’s not fast enough for you, install the included optional pinion gear and your 3S LiPo battery to achieve speeds up to 60mph!
The included Ikonnik HRS3.2 three-channel radio system employs cutting-edge technology to enable interference-free use of your Intrusion XLR alongside other cars and trucks. It’s compatible with the robust Xenon 2.4GHz protocol, which means it’s ready for an upgrade when you are. Constructed from lightweight, yet strong material, the fully independent suspension and oil-filled shocks soak up even the worst terrain, while the beefy all-metal gear transmission is designed to withstand the incredible power generated by the Reaktor powerplant.
The use of rubber-sealed ball bearings throughout reduces maintenance requirements, all while improving efficiency and performance without compromising value. A high-torque, all-weather 6kg servo with rigid aluminum body gives crisp steering response while the high-grip, long-wear, authentic V-tread tires keep you hooked up over a multitude of surfaces. Also included is an A/C wall charger to get you going right out of the box.
Radient Reaktor 50-4 Brushless System
The 50A all-weather electronic speed controller (ESC) provides great performance in all driving conditions. Coupled to the 3000kV 4-pole brushless motor this high performance combination delivers dominating speed. The programmable ESC includes thermal overload protection with low voltage cut-off to keep your system running in safe limits when used with up to 3S LiPo.
3000mAh Battery & 1A Charger
A 3000mAh 7-cell NiMH rechargeable battery pack with HCT-plug delivers the power necessary to reach speeds in excess of 40mph while the included AC charger gets you going out of the box.
