Question Anyone know of a successful 6x6 build that uses mainly parts of a Tamiya Hauler ???

I really need a thread as a guide because I dont want to mess anything up too much...

Can I base the 1.9 build on the axles positions as they are bu just adding some extra flex ability ???


I have a Tamiya Aeromax + some TLT axles for now and was trying to find a build mainly based on what the original kit contains (since I'm a noob to scale building).
Been trying to search but nothing too close to what I was after ...

Here is what I have to begin with >>>>>



Off to work ,THANKS !!!

You sure can. You might want to venture out and 4-Link the back axles.

I'd leave that chassis intact and start from scratch if it were me. They're too cool and rare to hack up.

Do you have another set of TLT axles or are you reffering to the axles under the chassis in the picture?

The KH axles are very similar to TLT axles, but they are narrower in overall width if I remember correctly...

So that means the original leaf springs come right off?

I don't mind using the original axles at all (but also dont want to ruin the original form too much because it is very nice),I bought this thing solely for a 6x6 build so yes I want to use the original axles and setup...

I might have to add some C's to the rear axles since they are straight...unless only front steer is enough???

I'm gonna go through every 6x6 and 8x8 build to get ideas but would love to find something based entirely on the original setup since I agree is not worth hacking up !!!
