Was it worth the wait? is it worth the $1770 AUD? You better believe it !!! This truck is a masterpiece of aluminium and steel and I can't wait to put it together. That being said you need to be a fairly experienced RC fan to build it as it comes with no instructions but that's part of the fun. The quality is top notch. Very happy.
OVERVIEW Item# C25853GUN Barcode: 91789020876
Only one word can describe our newest limited edition chassis - it's a beast! Realistically modelled after the historical MAN Kat1 series of 7-ton military-spec all-terrain trucks developed for the German Army, our 7T-GL High Mobility 6X6 Truck is a 1/10-scale machine like nothing we've ever released before! Weighing in at over 11 pounds, the build of this machine all starts with the backbone - a pre-assembled box-type ladder ladder frame made from steel and alloy components. From here, you'll find three Billet machined alloy axles with metal gear differentials (spool for the front axle), full ball bearings, full alloy high-ratio center transmission, full-time six-wheel drive system with HD universal driveshafts, and a multi-link crawler-type suspension with separate alloy shocks and springs.
Topping the chassis is a full aluminum, scale detailed, multi-piece metal cab and bed (assembly required) with features such as front and rear LED lights, standard front electric winch, adjustable side mirrors, front skid plate, actual working rear tailgate, clear Lexan windows, full-sized spare wheel and tire, paintable interior set and rear wheel fenders. A matching set of six (seven including the spare) of our true beadlock 1.9-class alloy beadlock wheels and pre-mounted rock crawler tires round out the look. we also include a set of alloy tools for assembly (see NOTE below).
NOTE: PHOTOS ABOVE SHOW COMPLETELY ASSEMBLED VEHICLE. Out of the box, the lower chassis (frame, axles, suspension, etc.) arrives 90% assembled; Upper cab, and trailer bed arrive unassembled and requires assembly. Interior and rear fenders are Lexan, and must be painted. Reference photos included; and use liquid threadlock when required, as some components are assembled for packaging purposes only.

The purchaser is responsible for any product assembly/disassembly, any set-up and adjustment, and periodic maintenance. If you need help disassembling your stock vehicle, you will need to refer to the instruction manual/exploded parts view of your particular vehicle, as provided by the manufacturer of your vehicle. If you are unable to assemble and/or install a product, please consult your local Integy dealer for assistance.
All products will require some prep out of the package. Some items (shocks, gearboxes, axles, etc.) are assembled for packaging purposes only, and may require standard prep before installation and usage, such as shimming for proper alignment, checking tightness of all components and fasteners, installing your own shock oil, anti-seize, or grease. Please be sure to apply threadlock on all metal-to-metal interfaces prior to installation; do not just install the item out of the package and assume they have been prepped correctly. Check, adjust, and set/reset all new items when taken out of the package.
Wheel and tire sets may be sold partially assembled for packaging purposes only, and require standard wheel/tire prep before installation and usage. All wheels and tires require CA glue (if press-fit style) or separate assembly (if beadlock style) before being used. Wheels and tires are not always pre-glued from the factory (unless specified in the product name or description).
Unless specified, not all products include hardware; if new or different-sized hardware and/or fasteners are included with the upgrade kit, those are meant to replace the factory hardware. Extra hardware, shims, or spacers may be required for some installations. Some parts may require permanent modification to the vehicle for fitment, and may eliminate certain OEM features. Some items may require modification to the vehicle for proper clearance.

Great looking truck, but no instructions, for that kinda money.. Been building many years, but something like this, needs a little guidance... Not everything is cut and dried for every build...
