Default MAN can't wait to get this build on.

Been wanting a military style recovery vehicle for a while now so I finally pulled the trigger on one. This one is made by Cross RC and it's fresh off the boat from China. Looks like a ton of plastic work and a lot of stuperglued fingers ahead of me lol. Tranny wheels/tires and axles come pre-assembled so that cuts some time down even though I need to go into all 3 and the trans to make sure they have enough grease in them. Really stoked to get this build going.

Sure enough the tranny and axles were rough as hell with a light coating of Tamiya style white grease so I packed em full.of blue marine including the planetary in the tranny

Blasted through the chassis and I'm gonna blame it on the Chinese writing but somehow I managed to put the tranny in backwards and had to rotate it.

My automatic thought was olive drab but I'm thinking desert sand two tone camo

Lotta progress made today still going through all the painting and plastic work. I've chosen rust-oleum camouflage sand and matte black for all the accents. The bed was a bit of a pain in the ass to put together but once it dried back to smooth sailing. I can almost say this ones pretty much wrapped up but yall know me and my rigs they're never fully done. Here's some more pics.

Finally got around to wiring up the esc setting the servo and hooking up the lights. Even took her for a night test run. Looks very promising so far the turning radius is actually pretty good for a 6x6

MAN I'm slow.I just realized this is the same truck that northernerbill just finished!

Looks good so far.

Any idea on what the turning radius is?? Having seen some 6x6's it looks like you need half a football field to turn them around.

And do you have an SCX or a TF that you can put next to it for a size comparison? Thanks

It was his build thread on rc4wd's forum that made me pull the trigger on it lol. I took it out today and surprisingly it's got a good turning radius as long as you're not trying to climb something while turning then the rear axles just push it. I'll take a pic of my Lincoln scx next to it for comparison
