The Machete 6S 1/6 Scale 4WD Brushless Electric Monster Truck is a direct replacement for the popular 1/6 Scale Shredder, but it’s not just a beefed up Shredder, it’s a completely new vehicle.
You’ve been asking for 6S capability in the Shredder and we’ve delivered. Our team has been working hard to revise the Shredder to make it 6S capable. However, we’ve ultimately decided that the best approach was to create a brand new design from scratch. The goal was to create a vehicle that could handle the extreme demands of a 6S power supply while outperforming the Shredder in every way. This new design had to be stable, fun to drive, easy to control and durable. The result is the Machete 6S, a truck that is not only durable enough to handle the demands of 6S, but also performs exceptionally well on 4S. The ready-to-run Machete 6S comes pre-assembled and does not include a battery or charger, allowing you to use your favorite batteries and chargers.
The Machete 6S includes a 4mm black anodized laser etched 7075 aluminum chassis, a Hobbywing 8BL150-RTR 150A ESC with two XT90 connectors and a 4274 brushless motor with a heat sink and cooling fan. Three high performance oil-filled differentials provide ultra-smooth handling and stability. Each differential can be fine tuned with different viscosity oils to alter handling. Thicker oil in the center diff provides a wild ride, making it easier to air out the front wheels, while thinner oil provides more stability and additional control during cornering, for race inspired performance. The Machete 6S comes with a cab forward body design that is complete with hard plastic skid plates and body armor to protect it from damage. The aggressive looking body is made from a flexible polycarbonate material that is proven to hold up well in the summer heat, as well as the winter chill. The Machete also includes a wing and wheelie bar for added stability, allowing for greater control and maneuverability.
The Machete 6S is built for extreme fun and includes a heavy duty 4WD powertrain with beefy gears and CVA axles front and rear. High strength plastics are used throughout the chassis and both the shock towers and lower A-arms have been engineered with captured shock end mounts. Large bore, oil filled, coil over shocks soak up the terrain so you can stay on the throttle. The shocks, along with several other machined aluminum parts, have been anodized in a rich red color for a super trick look. The Machete’s all terrain directional tires are soft enough to grab traction wherever it can be found, yet firm enough to provide good wear characteristics.
While the Machete is a replacement for the Shredder, it is a completely new vehicle. We’ve listened to your requests and created a vehicle that not only meets, but exceeds expectations. The Machete 6S is the perfect combination of insane power, stability, and performance that will take your bash sessions to the extreme. Get ready to slice up the competition and leave them in the dust with the Machete 6S 1/6 scale 4WD brushless electric monster truck.
