“New Traxxas 6×6

What’s up Cubby? So what do you think man, should I get the Axial UMG10 6×6 or the new Traxxas TRX-6 Mercedes? Both look good to me, can’t wait to get my first 6 wheeler!

Cubby- Hola amigo, and thanks for shooting me an email. If you send me your home mailing addy, we will get ya hooked up with one of our BSRC sticker packs.

So, should you pick up a Axial UMG10 6×6, or should you go with the Traxxas Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6×6? Hard question, no doubt. I have some time in with the Axial, but we have not driven the Traxxas yet. Therefore, I can not give you an honest decision of any sort. Now, I know first hand the Axial is a solid machine. Out of the box, the Axial can take some punishment, plus it offers up great trail performance. Having not driven the Traxxas yet, all I can go off of is specs, and that’s where Traxxas brings all sorts of goodness. The big Benz comes with remote locking diffs (all three of them!), a two speed trans, and its scale detailing is absolutely no joke.

Give us a couple weeks to get some time in with the Traxxas, then read our review to give yourself a better idea of how the two 6 wheelers stack up.
