custom create a new diff to replace the existing rear diff, then create a new rear plate to add to the existing frame. It is possible, but would take some serious work.

I have spent a lot of time with my MT2, and I have contemplated trying to make a six wheel drive.

No one said it had to look pretty to be cool. I was just thinking about doing it just to do something different. But the more I thought about it, the less it seemed worth the trouble.

If some has the money they should do what they want to there truck.It may be easier to do on a tmaxx but i would much rather be the first to do it on a mt2.Also if i had a all aluminum 6x6 with a .26 it would be anything but a shelf queen.

4x4 or 6x6, aluminum or not, I wouldn't spend money on a knick knack. I see no point in making an RC so pretty that you don't want to drive it. If I made my MT2 6x6 it would be out just as much as my truck now.

The first thing you'd have to do is to extend the rear of the chassis. How much? You'll have to take measurements and decide. Second, you'll have to duplicate the rear end & suspension; then, you'll have to "tie them together" so that ALL of the wheels drive. This WILL call for a lot of fabrication, especially in the area of INTER-AXLE drive. After accomplishing this, the rest will be...er...."downhill".

It's a lot of work, but, will it be worth it? Will it be worth it to you? And that's ALL that counts. Having something different is worth it's weight in......(you fill in the blank).
