Fresh from Fusion Hobbies.
King Yellow on G6-01 chassis, 6WD and 4WS if wanted!
At first I was unsure about this body but it quickly became the preferred one of the two currently available.
Although the Konghead is nice, this is bigger, thus more suitable and has a better shape to roll and right itself if it does roll!

Additions will be
Steel pinion
Ball bearings
53619 CVA shocks
and...
After re-reading the manual correctly I have now purchased these hop-up items
53968 - 5x5mm hard hex ball connectors for the top CVA mounting points in the middle section
53969 - 5x8mm hard hex ball connectors for the lower arms for the CVA shocks.

I have a konghead so there is no rush to build this ATM

UPDATE 12/04/2018
New pic of current hop-ups which I plan to install on my second King Yellow (which arrived today)
Just waiting for the release of the clear gearbox/chassis and coloured gears before starting the build!

UPDATE 6/06/2018
Coloured gears and clear gear case ordered, so should be able to start build next week!

UPDATE 30/11/2018
This second NIB sold to fund the purchase of the G6-01TR Dynahead!

I like this model. Looks way better than the konghead IMO. Curious about how the first non-boxart one will look.

These do look great fun! I do not like the school bus theme! But something different could look awesome as l do like the body design!
Will keep an eye out for this one mate.

Out of curiosity what are using the Heavy Dump Truck F parts for...the yellow bumper? I'd like to see Tamiya release either a cement mixer body, or a cab-over garbage truck body for this chassis. They would be perfect fits. I just saw that Tamiya was releasing the clear D parts (gear case) and a yellow gear set and orange idler gear set for this chassis. Question is do I completely rebuild my Konghead with these parts, get the King Yellow to put these parts in, or both. Chances are I'll probably get the King Yellow too. I really love this chassis, but its super expensive if you get all of the available Tamiya hop-ups for it. Good luck and enjoy the build.
