Default CrossRC HC6

Somewhere last year I received my first multi axle kit, the CrossRC HC6.
Really liked the BC8 Mammoth, but that is just too expensive for me
And the HC6 was next on the list



Due to time and other priorities it took some time to get it anywhere near finished, now working on the details.


The box!



2-speed gearbox:

Nice and heavy:



Front axle:



Rear axles:



Mounted on the chassis:



Had a lot of issues with the bump stops for the rear axles, broke 2 while mounting, which have been replaced by CrossRC.
The new ones were a lot softer and easier to mount than the ones provided in the kit.


Working on the wiring:



Wiring finished:



Started on the bodywork:




Finished bed and accesories:



Testfit and inspection:



And it's current state:

The mirrors are mounted in rubber mounts from the same materials as the rear bump stops.
I had the same issues with those, the kit provided ones were pretty hard and tore easily.
Got replacements which are a lot softer and easier to mount.



The interior still needs to be finished before mounting.
Working on that at the moment.


Will be adding a working winch, sound module and the khaki tarp, still deciding on what to add for details in the bed, seems a bit empty now.
And the sound module probably needs to go in the bed, so I need crap to hide it


I am also not sure yet about the tires, they seem pretty hard, even for a truck this heavy.

I’ve got a kit waiting to be built, looking forward to the “model’ part of the kit now.

Done the basic interior, it is now finished according to the manual.


First some test runs and then deciding on what else I want to do.
Tyres, accessoires etc.

Yeah, it's my first hardbody truck, and I was amazed by the amount of detail that goes into these things.
But also a bit overwhelmed by the amount of work necessary to build one, especially when you don't have a lot of spare time to build.

Paint looks a bit rough, but I think it suits the truck much better than a nice and shiny "as new" paintjob.
Got the tip to look into some weathering, but not sure yet, I don't want to destroy the paintjob

didn't like the all-red bodywork, so did some black painting on the grille.


Also giving it a sound module ESS One+


Now it is waiting for a new RX and some servo extension wires for the sound module

This thing looks awesome! I had never even heard of Cross RC until today. How is the quality of this truck? Does it seem like something that would stand up to some actually crawling, or is it mostly just a "for looks" truck?

So far it works fine.
All metal axles and gearbox.
Runs a bit above walking speed in high gear with the supplied 45t motor and around half of that in low gear.

But it is more of a scaler type vehicle as opposed to the trail rigs from brands like Axial, Traxxas, Element.

It sure does look cool. I may have to look into one of these sometime down the road. I have always liked big military trucks, and this may be a way to get one lol
