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)

Thanks KCCO! I picked up a go pro camera recently so the videos should improve in the near future.

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!

Looks good!
What did the wheelbases work out to be?

snapon boy 12-27-2016 04:17 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 ?

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?

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
