With a HUGE amount of snow that fell this week.. I was fortunate to get outside for a rather unique slash test for the Traxxas TRX6 6x6 Mercedes Benz G 63 AMG Off Road Trail Truck.. and WHAT A MACHINE! I have always enjoyed 6x6 RC's because they have the ability to do so much more than a normal 4x4. Yes, they are longer, and look more cumbersome, but they are more stable and have a better center of gravity. They can twist quite a bit, before they roll over.. and this brings a ton of advantages. Now, today, I want to splash around a bit and see how the suspension and drivetrain hold together. The water is very cold and in normal circumstances make plastic very brittle. Will I snap any pieces? Watch to find out!
Here is some information about this "stock" machine..
The Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6x6 represents a singular vision to create the boldest and toughest all-terrain vehicle ever. Traxxas captures the spirit and no-compromise approach of the Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6x6 with an officially licensed detailed scale replica built on the proven TRX-6 platform. Six drive wheels, three T-Lock™ remote-locking differentials, portal axles, high/low transmission, 6 aluminum long-travel shocks, and a stunningly accurate body with brilliant LED lighting make this the most advanced and capable RC crawler ever to hit the trail.
"MODEL 88096-4: TRX-6® Scale and Trail™ Crawler with Mercedes-Benz® G 63® AMG 6x6 body:
1/10 scale 6WD electric trail truck, Ready-To-Drive®, with TQi™ Traxxas Link™

In 2015, Mercedes-Benz released the limited-production G 500 4x4² to stake its claim as the ultimate off-road vehicle. Outfitted with a powerful V8 engine, dynamic 4WD system, and military-grade portal axles, the G 500 4x4² had no equal. Traxxas honors the engineering masterpiece that is the G-Class with this highly-detailed RC replica. Based on the class-leading TRX-4®, the Traxxas Mercedes-Benz G 500 4x4² features portal axles, a high/low transmission, and remotely locking differentials for superior all-terrain capability. The highly detailed body with unique wheels and tires makes this truck a fitting tribute to the legendary original.
