The King Yellow is a 6x6 six-wheeled R/C vehicle ready to pound dirt, asphalt lots, and neighborhood streets across the country. It is the second kit of the series, where the Kong Head first made its appearance. The model utilizes a gear-driven 6WD chassis which is partially derived from the capable Tamiya GF-01 wheelie machine. The exceptional drive it provides will make for extreme fun while off-road driving. Furthermore, its powerful gear-driven setup allows the King Yellow to take on slope inclines of up to 40 degrees.

The fun G6-01 chassis is based around a tough, slimline monocoque frame and offers excellent off-road performance thanks to a 6-wheel drive system. Power is provided by a motor behind the front wheels, and transmitted to front, center and rear wheels via gears. The gearbox is sealed to protect from dust and debris, and integrated into the frame; it has built-in front, center and rear differential gears to provide smooth cornering. 6-wheel double wishbone suspension is fitted with friction dampers. A 2-piece steering tie-rod setup utilizes the servo on the left for excellent response. With suspension reassembly and a separately-sold transmitter with 4WS function and R/C equipment, the rear wheels can be made steerable.

The polycarbonate body is inspired by school buses. It includes separate parts to complete the vehicle’s intricate details.

Roof lights are recreated by separate parts and attached with double-sided tape. Red and yellow lenses are depicted using stickers.

A sticker enables quick and easy recreation of the screw-attached STOP sign on the left side - an essential for any school bus. 

Stickers are also used to recreate lightly-tinted window areas with ease, saving time in the painting process. 

This 6-wheel drive monster truck school bus not only looks great, it will be a superb companion in your off-road adventures!
