Dominate the Dirt
This R/C model assembly kit creates the Konghead 6x6. With its big sleeper cab, flat nose and radiator grille, its polycarbonate body takes inspiration from U.S. trailer heads. Metal-plated air cleaner and muffler parts give an authentic finish. Marking stickers are included to decorate the body with style. The new G6-01 chassis is a newly-designed 6WD unit that can take on slopes of up to 40 degrees.
Fun, Innovative & Great Performance!
The fun G6-01 chassis is based around a tough, slimline monocoque frame and offers excellent off-road performance thanks to a 6-wheel drive system. Power is provided by a motor behind the front wheels, and transmitted to front, center and rear wheels via gears. The gearbox is sealed to protect from dust and debris, and integrated into the frame; it has built-in front, center and rear differential gears to provide smooth cornering. 6-wheel double wishbone suspension is fitted with friction dampers, while chrome-plated deep rim wheels are paired with 113mm diameter tires. A 2-piece steering tie-rod setup utilizes the servo on the left for excellent response. With suspension reassembly and a separately-sold transmitter with 4WS function and R/C equipment, the rear wheels can be made steerable.
Double wishbone suspension is paired with friction dampers for excellent off-road performance.
Smooth handling thanks to the 2-piece steering tie-rod and steering servo positioned on the left.
The motor powers three differential gears inside the monocoque, in a gear-driven 6WD setup.
