    Nice, but it looks like it made things harder to do (stuck on rocks more)

    are the extra wheels actually turning under power or just spinning? reminds me of that popular emaxx build. but yea it needs a long bidy, right now it looks as though its simply pulling a trailer.

    Nice. I look forward to seeing the build. Now you just need to make it 6ws as well & it would be all good.

    Do all 3 diffs lock & unlock independantlly or are the rear 2 on a "Y" harness set up?

    awesome. please tell us more. correct me if im wrong but it looks like u have added an extra rear tranny to the truck.

    im curious as to how you get power to the extra set of rear wheels

    lots of close up photos of your handy work would be greatly appreciated

    thanks

    It surely needs a longer body, would make the whole set up more complete.
    Can you break a Rusty?
    Umm...No...No, you can't.

    The rear diff is powered from a a shaft linked to the second, the second diff has been modified to have a through-shaft; rather tricky to do so its a great bit of engineering.

    As for longer bodies- yeah, ideally it would look better with one that covers the 3rd axle, but I defy anyone to come up with more 2 or 3 options to suit something with an ~18" wheelbase and has 3 wheel wells on each side that line up...

    Ultimate Hauler? It needs a big rig hauler cab and tow plate on the rear. That sumit would easily tow a 1 1/2' x 4' trailer with two or three other rc's, ice chest, paint ball equipment or just bringing firewood back to camp on that trialer. My imagination going crazy again. =) If anything I love it.

    +1, You need a rig body, swear I saw a yellow one one here yesterday, but I can't find it.

    or a custom Uni-mog with a flat deck, maybe splice two proline boulder holder bodies

    Thanks mate.

    I agree with some of he others around here, a nice truck shell with flat bed rear would look great.

    I would go with the flat bed rear with a spare wheel and tyre, or a rear winch.

    In the second diff using Integy steel gear. The Traxxas diff gear is not reliable and very fast damage.

    Very inventive, - Great design for the inverter box with some precise craftsmanship. As the pictures were flowing I was curious of how you were going to reverse the rotation of the driveshaft after the second fiff. Good choice. Almost makes me want to make a Summit train set. Wooo Woooo

    In my 6X6 e-revo 1/16 not used invertor gear (gear in the third diff change from left to right - very simply)
    but in the Summit use lock diff and was additionally problems.
    Next step - change all CVD to metall and change motor+ESC to Mamba.
    I few idea about change body...
    Maybe Tamiya 1/14 King Hauler booth...
    Maybe made Summit extended from two body...

    FTW!

    In this r/c hobby, there seems to be a 'thing' about Russians making the most insane modifications, be it mechanical or electrical, or both. I mean, I've seen plenty of great British, American & European builds, modifications & custom jobs, but in Russia the guys just go a little bit further to make something truelly mind blowing & inspiring...

    Since this old thread was brought up...- To the OP- did you ever get a shell made up for this beast? I would love to see it if so, maybe another running vid? Especially if you upgraded to the MMM like you mentioned was your plan- updates please! Awesome work btw.

    One of the best 6x6 adaptations I've seen. In particular the system of union of the second and third axes.
    It is easy in this type of adaptation: the vertical displacement of an axle let the other offside but in this case seems to work well.
    This particular Summit do not need a longer body, almost prefer to leave the third axis clearly visible.
    I do not think it was very difficult to adapt to the rims, a rubber belt for snow.
    Maybe a little more weight on the third axis.
