    Shouldn't this be a 6x8? The front wheels aren't driven, are they?

    Don't see why not - The 6x6  and other 8x8 have driven front wheels - the driveshaft for the front axle comes from towards the rear of the gearbox
     

    Also;

    https://store.rc4wd.com/114-8x8-tonnage-heavy-haul-truck-rtr.html

    Mentions "Remote Lockable Front and Rear Axles (Locking Differential)"

     

    6x6 Layout

    This is a strange caveat for buyers though

    You'd have thought including insured shipping would inspire more confidence in it arriving intact 😳

     

     

    Lesu also have a similar 8x8 chassis

    Yes, but from a realism standpoint, is 8x8 correct? Real lorries don't have driven front wheels, do they?
