So I'm going to give a tip most may know. If you keep striping your stock spur gear try a 32p duratrax spur that is a direct replacement of the stock 48p axial gear. No additional parts will be needed except for a 32p pinnion. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2016...2c0b193e9f.jpg

On the front axle I used the xr10 mod to give me extra steering and it was well worth it because the 6x6 now turns in about the same radius as my comp scx10.

Ok so this is a stolen idea, but I don't like head phones. So today the 6x6 went and picked up a load, a scale audio system. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2016...3c64b36c5a.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2016...b49688b736.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2016...4b504c88f9.jpg

Fish, truck is coming along nicely, I like the route you went with the speaker. The truck looks unstoppable, be fun to here how it does at your next comp.

Nice looking truck. Love the stacks and bed !

Re: Snapon' s 6x6 build
 
Well I was doing some practice with the truck and stripped the lower transmission Gear. So I just ordered a one pice hot racing lower gear and steel idler to match.. And a steel spur gear. Who knows what will give next.

The hot racing gears showed up. The case didn't but hopefully the Holmes Hobbies brushless power won't kill the stock case just yet. I ordered some gunnar transmission pins just to be safe.

Doing great job snapon. I'll be working on one soon i hope, and i like the way it articulates....Can you tell me where i could get one of those chassis rather then trying to make one..I think i have most of the parts all I'm missing is the chassis..

http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/...psrxxqsrkw.jpgjust got this recently...

Re: Snapon' s 6x6 build
 
Nerby149 here on rc crawler makes the chassis (149 r/c worx homebrew chassis) no clutter, I think you will like the chassis it does perform well, I will be running it at a comp in a few hours and hope to get some more running video up.

Here is a link to the chassis you asked about with more information about it. I have a few short videos up of it running.

You are correct the carbon fiber chassis from nerby is so awesome my son and I both have the carbon fiber chassis and carbon fiber links with smw skids. When I got Jr the homebrew chassis all set up he now keeps up with dad no more wait I'm stuck!! We now have 149 r/c worx chassis on all our crawlers (except for my shafty because nerby dosnt make one yet)

Small update but big improvement on looks and performance, I added a ScalerFab ram power wagon bumper. It has a nice finish and lots of clearance for the tires and approach angle.

I upgraded my links to a set of 149 r/c worx's carbon fiber with revo rod ends. They are very strong super light and look very cool! My other links were axial aluminum ones that I kept braking the ends on, now I should be good to go and if I brake an end almost every hobby store will have them! In using the homebrew 6x6 chassis I now have 4 link set up on every axle. To get your set of hand made in the USA links contact 149 r/c worx's. I also installed the junfac shafts I broke the wildbore 8hd shaft.

I recently purchased some lighting from Joshs4x4toyz, 1st let me say super vendor amazing customer service and blistering fast shipping. These are 3d printed and are very good quality. I tested them with 3s lipo and they are extremely bright, I plan on working with al from heyok to get a dimer/lipo lvc and switch to get these bars powered up. The material that is used is very good quality. My 6x6 rolled down a 8 ft rock sea wall today and it still works fine. I will update with night pictures/video when I get them powered up!

What did the wheelbases work out to be?

snapon boy 12-27-2016 05:17 PM

Re: Snapon' s 6x6 build
 
17 over all and 11.5 to the first rear axle. The chassis is amazingly versatile and my favorite rig to run except for my xr10.

Thanks, yeah I was looking for something that I could get that short to the first axle. I'd like to get the rears closer if I could and still make things work.

With all the holes in the home brew chassis I bet you can get it where you want it. I use the extra links I had.

I love your truck 8)

Can you tell me some sizes of it: overall length, wheelbase between front and central axles, wheelbase between central and rear axles, tires diameter ?

And, it's probably a silly question, but I just discovering homemade 6x6 so... how did you make central axle with 2 shafts, 1 on each side ?

snapon boy 04-28-2017 08:14 PM

Re: Snapon' s 6x6 build
 
I think my rig is approximately 18 inches over all. You can build the center axle easily with two sets of housings and flip the rear axle.

Re: Snapon' s 6x6 build
 
So I'm thinking about adding rear steering, the question is do I need to put servos on both rear axles?

Re: Snapon' s 6x6 build
 
No, not necessary. Turns great with just the front and the rear. But I can tell the middle axle pushes the rig into turns, so having all turn would help.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...6332688553.jpg
