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.

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.

I'm planning on running this at my next comp with North Texas scale crawlers in a few weeks. I'll also try to put up some new videos soon.

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.

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 stacks are made from carbon fiber tube. They have that grimy diesel look.

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..

just got this recently...

Sorry to clutter up your build.....
Subscribed i need some ideas lol...

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.

Homebrew 6x6 chassis

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.
