Definitely one of the coolest 6x6 trucks ever. Seen quite a few flat beds or even a box truck but I don't recall any other firetrucks this sweet!

I had to find this thread after seeing it mentioned in the Winnebago buildup.. it's just as awesome, haha.

Not sure if you ever sorted out the issue with the motors, but wiring multiple motors in parallel instead of series should give them all equal power/speed. If you removed 1 motor and left the other 2 in series, you'd still have the same stalling issue.

That is incredible- I love the hitch system. My son was very impressed. He asked the same thing as Beater did a page or so back... do you have any video of it yet? He wanted to see it move! :wink: So do I. :D
