Off-Road Rig Rework! Tamiya Dynahead 6×6 RC Truck Quick Project Overview & Action by RC Driver

We have built up a lot of crazy projects on the channel and a lot of those projects are major overhauls of the vehicle. But you don’t need to completely redo a vehicle to make it fun. You have to pick and choose what parts are right for your application. Sometimes just simple things can make a big difference. That’s what we did on our Tamiya Dynahead 6×6 we reviewed a while back. We’ve had a few parts lying around the workshop that we thought would be some great additions to this fun off-road rig. So rather than think about it any longer, Greg dropped everything he was doing and swapped out the electronics and some other parts on the Dynhead and the result we think is pretty cool. Take a look at our Project Tamiya Dynahead 6×6 with an all new attitude.
