    A old friend of mine asked me what to do with his Axial scx10 6x6 Unimog .
    The truck was performing very bad , the axles where not in line and the flex was terrible .
    [​IMG]

    He only had one problem , it has to be low budget .
    So he came with the plan to build a Pinzgauer 6x6 , so the heavy Unimog cabin could leave the place .
    But i also told him to get a new chassis that would noy be so fragile as this one .
    So i started taking the thing apart :

    I wanted te be better than before so some aluminium is necessary

    And the new chassis :

    And started to build the new body :

    My friend choose for the lowbudget body so he wanted a Pinzgauer , but a talkt to him and showt him by pictures that there are also other options and i showt him this picture :
    [​IMG]
    He immediately felt in love with it , so no it will become a kind of M62 made out of this old cabin i had on the shelf . First i had to make some changes to make it fit , because this chassis has the two gear tranny on it :

    And also a new box for the electronics :

    And here the panel was meltet :

    Freddy you ability amazes me!!!! Everything Ive seen you build on here blows my mind!!
    You could possibly start off with a stick, gum wrapper, and a balloon and build it into a true work of art!!
    My hat is off to you Sir!!

    lol Mcguyver rc ( i actually wanted to use him as a driver then i learned it is one of the top 10 rarest action figures ) And yep @Freddy is awesome at rc modeling and has these 6x6's he makes nailed on what they need to work correctly .... I think its time for Freddy to make a D or E class 8x8 .
    ( if you decide to make a E class Wraith AR60 axles May give you the extra width. and with the addition of the Axial bomber ,Axial released a Ar60 diff cover to make multiaxle rigs AX31317
