When Tamiya announced its G601 chassis Konghead 6×6 Steven Arnold of Tasmania, Australia knew he would have to build the crazy crossbreed you see here. He had previously converted a Wild Willy 2 to ride on the 4×4 GF01 from the Bullhead, so he knew how to go about it. The trick to making his Willy 5 inches longer was to build a framework out of ¼-inch thin wall aluminum square and then cover that with Evergreen polystyrene sheet. He also added a full set of ball bearings and CVA 2 dampers to the Kong chassis. Power comes from a Kyosho Magnetic Mayhem motor and a Castle Creations Sidewinder controller—now hidden behind styrene panels to cover the disguise the vacant space under the elongated Willy bed.
