Hi guys newbie here

And i dont want to waste my money

Thank you

Given the limited options in rtr format I can definitely recommend the RC4WD Blackwell Beast.

There are a few bad reviews out there which seem justified in their particular cases although most of them appear to be when it first came out. These problems have probably been addressed by now. I can certainly say that I'm very happy with mine. It's a very capable rig and looks great to boot. The axles are very scale.

They've also stopped producing them so if you want one you're best getting on with buying one mate!

One point to note is that nothing is thread locked so doing that will avoid bolts/screws falling out. It did on mine anyhow!

Its only rtr mechanically and electrically, minus battery so you'll want a shell too and you are limited in that dept if you want a true lorry cab; getting a tenth scale one ain't cheap if you're not confident/skilled enough to build one like me!

I've not seen anything on the integy rig and don't own it either. I do know integy as a whole have some bad reviews although I couldn't say either way.

RC4WD are a decent company in my experience.

What scale is your yacht?

Hope this helps mate and good luck!

I'm a total novice with boats so that means very little to me!

I was off to suggest that if its 14/16 scale you'd be better converting a tamiya rig to AWD. For the simple fact that there are a plethora of lorry accessories in that scale. 10th scale their isn't so much. Depends how much you want to custom build mate!

I agree with luke1983, a Tamiya semi with a front drive axle and some tire changes may be an option to look into.

If you can read directions & use basic tools, the Tamiya 1/14 scale Tractor Trailers (lories) are very easy to build, just take your time. Tamiya is the best company for noob's to experts. I built a Scania a few years ago & extremely happy with it. I'm not too sure about converting it to 6 wheel drive, though I was debating on doing a conversion at some point.

If you want a RTR, check out Ebay, then you'd just have to search the conversion.

Good luck.

Here's a picture of when I was wiring it up.

That looks great
Do you know how many pounds it can pull?
Im thinking the yacht and a trailer is around 10 to 15 pounds maybe around that area

I don't know but I'd imagine its be able to do that. Also you could mess about with hear ratios/motors to get desired power.
