Default 6x6 Mack

A couple of us have had the urge to get a truck trials fun comp going to break up the competitiveness of scale comps.. Bragging rights only.... So here is my build so far

King Hauler/Mack conversion cab, previous mods started someone else.
Custom spare carriers
Semi chassis
Axial axles
R2 2 speed trans
Scale shocks
8 1.9 Tango down wheels (the most expensive parts so far) rolling six, carrying 2
1.9 Trailbuster tires
Rear shock rocker
Wood flatbed

This is what the cab looked like when I got it


My goal was to build a trials 6x6 so here it is. Axles mocked under it


Got the shock rockers on





Here it is as of last night- pictures are not that good, the light was bad, I will take cleaner ones later.
Aluminum bead lock wheels, Trailbuster tires, and custom spare carrier added



Wood Flat bed

Love the look of those Mack cabs, looks just like a mean bulldog to me, and I like it.

Managed to get it rolling on its own
35T motor
Mamba Max esc
RC4WD 2 speed trans
Interior
Stacks


This thing is BLAST to drive






A few more things to do like put the tanks & steps on, rear bumper, then I can think about a color, I am leaning towards OD, or tan. For now primer gray will do

So is that 35t saucy with the 2 speed? Hows the low end?

Low end is great, I don't have the servo in for second gear yet, but I am not sure it needs any more speed

Had it out at our G6 comp today, I didn't comp it, but I found a mud/water puddle and the truck loved it. No poser shots, this pig got into the mud and it had to get itself back out. This thing is a beast












This is why there are cut-outs in the bed


Later peeps, I'm outta here!!

I am Not liking this truck and thread! I AM LOVING IT! Nice job on the truck all the way around. But those shock rockers are on point! Definately subscribing to this one! This has made me realize that sleeping on the couch cause I spent too much time working on my truck is a small price to pay !!!!!LOL
