    After a long time i started a new build .
    This time it will be a truck (again) bud this time it's going to be a 6x4 and not a 6x6 .
    The reason .........................you will see later .
    The first parts :

    The gearbox is fixed so there is no 3rd gear in it , so when i put it in 3rd gear the axles can run free .

    Looking forward to this one I must say.

    My guess is that you want to become an Ice Road Trucker and need a true prime mover rather than a 6x6 :Grin:

    Your work is truly art, it gets better and better each build. I never thought of removing 3 gear from the 3 speed Tamiya transmission to get neutral, good idea.

    Wow this build is coming along great. Looks awesome! Nice to see "The Duke" make an appearance. One of my all time favorite builds.
