Crazy Fun Monster RC School Bus! – Tamiya King Yellow 6×6 G6-01 with Options Video Review by RC Driver

We were never a fan of taking the bus to school when we were a kid. But if our school bus looked like the Tamiya King Yellow 6×6, things may have been different. The King Yellow is a cool looking school bus body on Tamiya’s G6-01 six wheel drive electric platform which is a full build up kit. We’ve already did and unboxing and review of the G6-01 as the Konghead 6×6 so we were looking to do a little something different in this video. That’s when the idea hit us to show you all the upgrades you can do to this fun RC Machine. Plus we decided to bump up the power too and install the 4-wheel steering set-up. Did the hop-ups help? We’ll show you our experience with the Tamiya King Yellow 6×6 and break down the performance with the option parts installed.
