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!

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.

Default Snapon' s 6x6 build

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

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 ?

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.

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.
