Iím still waiting on my G63 body for my converted trx4, but the mini version of my 1:1 looks at home on the chassis.

So do I. Probably look into the Axial 6x6 bed in the future or try making a custom flatbed. The Hilux 6x6 conversions by Arctic 6x6 look pretty cool too.

I like that a lot!!!!!!

If you put ďarctic 6x6Ē into browser search there are a lot of super cool 1:1 vehicles.

Lots of great ideas.



I wish I could find an rc version of that stinger bumper for my trx4. ExActly what Iím looking for

Iíd love to try a 6 x 6 on my rocks

That one or the pickup bed version jumped out at me.

Swung by the hobby shop and picked up a 1230SG. Installed that with a metal Traxxas servo horn to replace the 25kg hexfly/ hot racing arm. Which is going into my Gen8. Also dropped the pinion gear to a 9t. Iím surprised the Hobbywing Xerun XR8 SCT works well with a crappy 13.5 Hobbywing Justock motor.

That front bumper looks like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

Then I took it out for a test drive. Watched tons of videos before I bought it but I will say that is crawls as well as expected.

Wow Gramps...really neat idea. Balancing left and right sides. Weighs up to 17.5 pounds !. I know what I want for Christmas now ! ��

Made another body to fit. This one is a lower profile. Will be my rock bouncer. Glued posts under body and magnets like the last one. Does not come off unless Needed to. Will use Satin Black again. Using my LG workbench.

Did anyone else see the video where Josh ran his TRX6 into his foot at 57mph? OUCH!

Made and installed my usual sun visor out of shrink wrap from a screwdriver set. Glued with small amount of shoe goo. Used body cuts from bed to glue on inside of one bed. Used it as a coupling. When dried ..I glued the other bed to it. I use about 6 thin coats of shoe goo to try and hide coupling marks. It needs to flex so I did not use other products. Will install Samix shock mounts when they arrive and try to lower the body a bit more.

The sun visor really sets off the cab.

Done for now. Will figure what color to airbrush over for light rust spots.

Agreed! That looks excellent! Very nice job sectioning the bodies together.

I've got a Tamiya Bullhead body en route for mine, it'll be a winter project.

Thanks..this is a simple version of my more detailed first body...photo #16 on first page if this. I wanted something I could scrape and not pamper. Looking forward to other people making 6x6 bodies on here. I saw this one on a YouTube and really liked it.
