I have one coming in the mail. I really like the 6x6. My DIY one was basically a crawler, and the new factory one I will bring out this Saturday as I am sure it is just as capable. The only problem is that the new version has very soft tires and I preferred the old bouncier ones.

Yes in a way. However, the new ones are so soft that they practically pops out of the rim if you apply any kind f pressure. Don't know how well they would run on smooth surface.

New truck pics....... Doors and bed doors are operable. Different 6v battery as it has a different hood. Wind shield and head light covers. Intersetingly enough, the underpinning is different than their other 6x6. It has much bigger differential and metal transfer arms, also the suspension is basically a replication of their 4x4 and NOT like their other 6x6 which has a modify one. Because it is just a replication of their suspension the bed and wheel base is longer than their other 6x6.

Actually funny you asked. The tires seems to be not as hard as the original ones but not as soft as their latest ones. Keep in mind this is marketed under a different brand name so it might be a better version period. I will post some pictures tonight of the under carriage and you can tell the difference. The differentials seems to be the one that is marketed on aliexpress right now that is all metal but is in plastic. The remote control also has a 2 speed switch. Overall just a better truck all around in my opinion.

Here are the under carriage pics. As you can see, they have streamline the entire drive train. For their old 6x6, they have re-used the 4x4 parts where as this one is all purposely design so when it is running there is no side to side movement because of the off centre mounting of the drive shafts. The new ones is all line up properly and the middle differential is purpose built and not from parts from the old rear axle flip around.

The differential is also quite a bit beefer, and the if I am not mistaken it is actually drive by a single 370 motor with fewer gears (more of a direct drive) and the remote control for speed is probably just reduction in voltage to the motor.
