Default CROSS RC UC6 6x6 Ural Truck

Hey I thought I would start a thread for my CROSS RC UC6. I also own their older 8x8 truck. This UC6 is the single coolest RC I've ever owned. I can't believe just how much detail they put into everything. I have owned 2 Tamiya semi trucks in the past and this kit honestly blows Tamiya's quality away... I know its not the same scale to compare (1/12 vs 1/14) but its true!

I still need to sew a canvas cover for the bed, and make some videos of it driving around outside.

Would HIGHLY recommend anyone thinking of buying to do so, amazing kit.

I made a video series while I was building it you should check it out.

I re-arranged the front end to try and make the steering better and it was pretty easy to flip around the steering bar. I had to drill new holes to mount the steering servo because it hit into the fake engine block.

I got the steering better but its still not that much of a difference, its almost the same angle on each wheel when it turns. I think the steering arms would need to be bent inwards but I don't want to try and mess with that, probably end up breaking them.

I got a near final canvas done, only thing I need to change is the rope that ties the canvas to the truck is still a bit too thick. I came up with a really nice way to slip the back rod into the canvas, it uses eyelets for that. I also made all the tie-down points much more evenly spaced so all the rope has a nice zig-zag pattern to it. Also the rear flap has a piece of velcro so you can remove it if you want to.

I made patterns and I plan to sell a few of these, anyone interested in buying one? Price will be $75.

Looking great really drooling for this bad boy. How much did you pay for it?

If you do a little research on your own, with the info the OP gave in the first post, he probably paid right around $1000 +/- $100. These trucks are highly detailed and you pay for it

I must say its a nice truck but for 1000 its overpriced. I will wait for it to drop in price. You can buy two Tamiya big rigs for a 1000 or a Tamiya tank. How about a 1/5 gas powered car. Wish it wasn't so pricey.

Get what you pay for. All perspective on where you want to put your money. Sure, Tammy rigs are nice but still have nowhere near the detail or driveline as the cross. To each their own.
