Default ...6WD Maxx project (pictures)

I finally finnished my 6 wheel drive emaxx project, it looks good and handles really well.


I can now climb up near vertiical slopes with a run up and i dont roll over backwards. It also still manages to pull a few wheelies.

What do you guys think?

No its just as strong as the stock E-maxx, if not stronger.

It wont roll over so easily so it wont get so much damaging.

I drove it down a flight of steps and there was no evidence ot flexing of anything it just flowed down the stairs.

Use the PeterBuilt body mabey you can make a wing for the rear or just use a buggies wing. That would look cool

for the center diff, you get a pair of diffs and cut in half

for the body, buy two pickup truck bodies, from the first one cut from the back about 1/2 inch from the back, then cut the whole back end of the other truck, so only the bed is left, then put them together cut in the lengh you need, then you have to somehow glue/or use somethinng else to put together

very nice truck

Yea i hacked up 3 stock diffs to make the centre diff. I have set it up so i can have 6 wheel steering if i wanted, but i would need a computer radio for that and i dont have one.

The sound of the all powerful electric monster!

I think better tire gripping power should make the truck mount that slope.
