Good Dalek 6S Field and Street Buggy

Second Arrma 6S parts bin building. Goal for Good Dalek was to provide 2 rolls. First as a type of short course buggy for ripping cut-grass fields, dirt and gravel. And Secondly to adapt to Street tires for asphalt driving and bashing around.

General RC Information

After building the Big Buggy Bad Wolf I used much of the left over parts from a Kraton and Typhon and other 6S parts. I built a Stretched and Widened Typhon with Talion towers and re-sprung typhon shock bodies. Bit short course, but a little lower and shorter than a Mojave. It's a Super 6S Buggy for ripping cut-grass fields, dirt and gravel that also handles and behaves well with street tires for asphalt driving, bashing and speed running short blocks. Mixed conditions.

I opted for narrow typhon a-arms with hub extensions over longer Mojave arms so I can easily remove them for a better street-car profile with Hoons or similar tires. The hub extensions give it a wider stance with short course tires which I feel is better and faster speed running sports fields.

This is the 2nd of (2) 6S-8S cars I've documented in this Build Log:
6S-8S XLWB & LWB Big Buggies made from Typhon, Kraton, Talion and Mojave Bits 'n Pieces, formally known as An Idiots Guide to a Truggy 6S Build and some Resulting Carnage
