Off-Roadin’ & Haulin’! Tamiya 58676 Volvo A60H Hauler G6-01 6×6 RC Off-Road Truck Review by RC Driver

Get ready heavy equipment enthusiasts! The G6-01 platform from Tamiya gets a new body style and a new look to the chassis with the release of the Volvo A60H Hauler kit. The G6-01 is a full build up 6×6 truck kit that comes with the motor, you get to add your choice of electronics. The big features on this G6-01 are the pre-painted Volvo A60H cab body and abs molded dump bed. The chassis and other supported parts are now molded in a bright yellow to match the body. We assembled our kit and took this hauler out bashing. The G6-01 is a fun all around kit and delivers a lot of action whether you’re speeding around your backyard or a dirt lot. Love the look of heavy equipment, but still want the fun of running an RC at full throttle? Then you need to check out the Tamiya Volvo A60H Hauler G6-01 6×6 Truck!
