Sure they are. I've seen several model car racing boys power them from as much as 9V on the steering in order to obtain a pretty fast response.
Bear in mind that although the internal motors can easily handle 9V or more, the actual electronic gubbins will usually die prematurely, so 6V is pretty much borderline.
