    RC Car Trailer

    Alright, I made a trailer out of Lowe's paint stirrer's for my 1/10 scale Drift King..It is going to be pulled by my Ford Harley truck, the trailer is all made and everything but I need some suggestions on how I could do the wheels and axle for the trailer. The trailer's dimension's are 7 3/4 inches wide and 18 inches long not including the tongue..Any help will be appreciated, even if I have to go to the store to get materials that will be fine..Here some pictures of the trailer.

    RE: RC Car Trailer

    Cool. mabye for the wheels you can go the the HW store and get some big looking off-road tires for the trailer. then you can go off-road with the car and the trailer.

    RE: RC Car Trailer

    like any of these and as far as wheels just look up airplane wheels for the size axle you get and take your pick http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0093p?&C=QDB

    RE: RC Car Trailer

    Alright, thanks for all of your help..About the Airplane axle's, do the axles have to spin or will just the tire spin?..Herman i sent you an email about the trailer.

    RE: RC Car Trailer

    the axles are stationary just the tire spins on them. if you use them put some fuel tubing inbetween the tire and the washers so you wont have that vibrating sound

I dont think you'll be going to fast with the trailer.
