I run a spektrum DX4C so it has steering mix built in. Run it off aux2. I can turn it on or off. If you have a DX4S you can set it for front/crab/4ws

I've got a airtronics Mt4. How did you connect the bec to 2 servos?

That's going to change once I get a second spektrum 6250 HV servo. I'll run a bypass then

snapon boy, how tight is your turning radius/circle? ...mine is at about 4.5 ft right now...

snapon boy 05-28-2017 02:05 PM

Re: Snapon' s 6x6 build
 
Idk I would guess close to that my servo is out but I'll push it in a circle and see. I did do the xr10 mod on the front

Re: Snapon' s 6x6 build
 
wow, mine is that tight with just my usual axial high clearance knuckles and aluminum chubs, I still have the dogbone axles in the front. I was thinking about doing the narrow XR mod to try and gain some more turning,but its close to 200 bucks with the beeftubes, XR axles, vp wraith chubs and knuckles and knuckle bushings.... not sure if its worth doing at this point...

My setup ( if I put in axial cvd axles) was half that cost and turns as well...

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...3babd00b64.jpg here is the side shot to show you where the links are mounted. I don't know if it would be any tighter with the servo. I have all the parts to do 6 wheel steering I just need some free time to knock it out.

thanks for the side shot, right now I think my rear springs are way to firm. I need to soften then up a lot... Do you notice a difference in the way the rear shocks are mounted.. yours are slightly pointing towards each other and mine are both slightly leaning forward..

I use Scx10 shocks with Traxxas orings and hpi bladder in the top with green slime to build with. I put krazed builds pistons in them. The others I use and they leak less than any other shock I know of it the koyosho velvets

Well I tore down the 6x6 and rebuilt it better than before. New bed, new body and wheels also. I replaced the long dead foams with soft comp cut med comp cut and firm major improvement it driving. I put in a new 7954sh servo added beef tubes in the 2 rear axles along with deadloc racing lockers and under drive ring gears it helps the steering some. Mip shafts as well, hopping to participate in a few pulloffs thus season. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...8c9ff87ca2.jpg

I know what you mean, I have the same problem sometimes... I mean, I leave parts on the bench, tools and hardware, and in the morning they still are not installed! WTH?

looking forward to some new video!

I've got one up on utube of it climbing a near vertical rock bolder. I think we measured it at 67 degrees or something like that.

Re: Snapon' s 6x6 build
 
Well, I made a few more updates to the rig. I put vp underdrive gears in both rear Axles and stock vp gears in the front. I changed the esc to a castle mmp and the servo to a promodeler 630oz. I installed corrupt carbon works tec flex and cleaned up the wiring and a new high clearance skid color matched. I made a few trades and got 6 new vp kmc orange and black wheels as well. It's been a long time since I have posted but I think it's been about a 3 year build. I'm going to use a new steel 149 r/c worx frame and have it powder coated to match the body color soon.
