I finally finished my six wheeled RC car! Here it is with the body on it, painted to look like BA's (Mr. T's) van on The A-Team. :D

Hey what ever happened to the FWD Stampede you were attempting to build?

Well, the bad news with that is I put the kibosh on that project. I just have too many other projects to finish at the moment including finishing a custom Bandit for a friend of mine. I feel like "painted myself into a corner" with the design of the chassis too. 
The good news, however, is I gave the chassis and a few parts away to someone else who had interest in finishing it. They have access to CNC equipment too, so I think it's now in even more capable hands then mine. It should continue along the same, well worn thread.

That kinda sucks... But hey, i get like that too sometimes...

It's just that i read up on an FWD TRF201, then i stumbled across that thread on URC and was like, "Neat! someone's experimenting with FWD offroad here!"
I think it's in good hands, would've still liked to see it completed. Just for the lolz. 

I'd love to give building a custom car a go tbh. It'd be quite fun.

Just watched the new The A-Team with Liam Neesan. So seeing this makes me smile! Only if his van actually looked like that. Haha Fantastic work!

Eh, this one wasn't as good at off-roading as it first looks. Having only the center wheels driving, there were times it would get stuck in loose dirt on flat ground. :blush: The center wheels would dig out the ground beneath them, and the outer unpowered wheels would hold the center wheels over the little holes they dug.

I sold that one off long ago, and build this true 6 wheel drive in it's place:

aahhhh yes upgrading. how does it perform on uneven ground?

Much better than the first. Though not a solid axle truck, I'd say it would almost make a good rock crawler too.

that seems pretty cool to see. a rock crawler with fully independent suspension.

No, it drives like a regular car, but it has 4 wheel steering which allows it to turn much sharper.

That's a bit bonkers.

What was it to begin with? and does it have six wheel steering for crazy doughnuts?

It was a Traxxas Stampede to begin with, and yes it does have four wheel steering. At the moment I'm trying to convert it to 3 motor, 6 wheel drive.
