    Sled Puliing

    I'm looking to get into the rc sled pulling and wanting to get a sled. I would like not to spend so much money on a store bought one and Ihave resorces to build one. I have all the neccessary welding equipment and whatever is needed. I was wondering if anybody has ever built one or had plans to build one? I would be willing to pay for a plan or if Ican look at some good pictures of some and get some ideas. Thanks for any help.

    I always wanted to get into this... I just never had the motivation to build a sled, or spend $400 on one.

    RE: Sled Puliing

    We had a local pulling organization start up this year and i got in on it. Its a whole lot of fun. We have a lot of different classes that include a lot of scratch built stuff, but i have been running the monster truck class. Here is a video:

    Here is a picture of my wifes truck sitting with the sled behind it(and her first win/trophy) as well as sitting beside my truck(without the weights on it). A sled wouldnt be real hard to build. Like was said, the main thing would be getting it geared correctly for a 30ft track.

    Pulling is cool. Though it seems like simply using a force meter would be pretty effective, but probably not as cool as actually pulling heavy objects.

    Put the force meter in the hitch of the sled!
