    Version Info: This vehicle is delivered as “RTR” but requires the additional purchase of 4 (four) AAA alkaline batteries for the transmitter.

    Motion RC is pleased to offer the FMS 1:18 scale Atlas 6x6, a captivating mix of modern chassis design and old-school cool. Don’t let the compact size fool you, this mini monster is a fully-capable crawling machine that includes features normally found only in larger, more expensive machines!

    The unique high-torque transmission and gearbox delivers the torque of an optimized 55-turn brushed motor to all 6 wheels via a specialized drive system. Expertly-tuned coil-over dampers allow the Atlas to articulate over rugged obstacles while anodized aluminum chassis rails maintain the ideal central chassis stiffness. Soft, big-block tires on beadlock wheels provide maximum grip over most any terrain.

    Drive with confidence thanks to the Atlas’ waterproof electronics package, which allows the vehicle to operate in shallow water without a worry! In addition, an auxiliary receiver power provides convenient installation of FPV systems or additional lighting features.

    Combine the versatile, go-anywhere fun of the FMS 1:18 Atlas 6x6 with Motion RC’s industry-leading customer service and product support for a package that cannot be beat!

    What size is the motor? 130, 260, ? Any size motor can have 55T, it's the size that is a true indicator of power. Some of the smaller trucks, this size , can't drive over a puff of wind. I "want to believe".
