6x6 version as rumoured:

https://www.banggood.com/WPL-B-16-116-2_4G-6WD-Crawler-Off-Road-RC-Car-With-Light-RTR-p-1291064.html?rmmds=categories&cur_warehouse=CN

Believe or not I have just finishing kit bashing one that is exactly the same as the one they just release. I guess someone in the factory had the same idea. I will bring it out on Saturday to run around a bit, but kinda funny that it is the exact same thing but one is custom built.

Basically you combine pieces from the stock WPL and then pieces from the Gaz-60.........

I got one coming in the post. The axles are different, much beefier. Also they straighten out the whole drive train so there is much more power transfer to the axles than the original 4x4 and 6x6.

Also notice that it is 1/12 (Not really, but for some strange reason they are all listed as 1/12.

Mine arrived today. The truck seems a little bigger than the original M-35, but it is not 1/12. Wider and slightly longer.

Battery compartment in the bed, great idea. Mini Tamiya power plug ?!?! WTF ? Servo steering, much stronger drive train (probably a 380), metal drive shafts all around and very beefy transfer case. Suspension is back to the old style left spring even for the rear set. The M35 6x6 was some complicated loose hinge/leaf spring that doesn't work very well at all.

New wheels and covers, different accessories and very strong front suspension (I didn't think there was any until I flip it over and saw the left spring). Not so great workmanship as there is all kinds of crack screw mounts due to over tightening. Steering and throttle trim on the radio, and with the throttle trim lowest level the truck actually runs at a realistic speed. So continuous variable transmission baby ! 

No plan for this one. Will bring it out at our next meet to show everyone. Since there is servo steering and throttle trim, I might leave it factory.

Driveline angles look much better than the older one too (4x4 versions).

Basically other than the original one, they have straighten the driven train in all other iteration. Too much power was lost on the lateral movement alone.

Don't know if anyone mentioned it before, but WPL is offering two gear transmission now as an add on.
Check the video as well.

New plan. Will take the bed off and put on a fifth wheel and use it as a tractor for my tank trailer.

I am using the battery that comes with the truck. They suck but they are odd shape and I don't want to buy another battery just for it.

The ESC itself won't run the lights. I just hook up the LEDs to the receiver which is powered by the ESC. So when you power it on the LEDs will come on.
