Big block power
The Robitronic 4.6 big block engine is extremely powerful. With a super-size heat-sink you will never have issues with high temperatures and overheating. A high-flow dual stage air filter protects the engine from contamination. Tuning and adjustments are simple and you can have this truggy up and performing in a short amount of time. The engine is equipped with a pull start system, so no need for an expensive starter box. The polished tuned pipe is very lightweight and has been tuned to the engine for maximum power. Axial is an established name in the marketplace so support is only a call away if needed.
The Mantis chassis was designed for an ultra low center of gravity, to be lightweight and have maximum suspension travel. The result is a very easy handling chassis right out of the box and with all the options for setup you can fine tune it to your driving style and track conditions. Long oil-filled 14mm piston aluminum shocks with 3.5mm shafts and super strong composite suspension arms let the car fly over bumps and jumps. The heavy duty aluminum shock towers are strong and allow multiple shock positions for further tuning. All the suspension pins are supported in rubber bushings; this elastic connection avoids damage to the suspension during severe use. The Mantis has three low profile differentials all with a 6 hardened metal gears. The aluminum-top deck is ultra low further adding to the low center of gravity. The Mantis body is low for maximum air flow around the engine. All this adds up to a strong performing chassis with performances advantages you can feel right out of the box.
The Mantis offers a wide range of tuning adjustments so that you can fine tune your truggy to any driving condition. All important suspension points are easily adjustable.
