Default using a rc 4 wd truck to go down in to a cave to see what i can find.

Hey people me and my dad wants to put this 4 wheel drive truck that i got from radio shack and put it down in to a cave and drive it down there. Now what i am going to do is put a black and white wireless cam that has night vision on it, and put cam on the roof or on the hood of the truck and get some wire or some string and lower it down in to the cave wile i am watching the tv screen as it go down. The cave has to be pretty deep because we stuck like a 50 ft. trees down it and when it hit the bottom i think... you couldn't even see the tip of it. So what do you people think about it? OH and i was wondering is there any thing that can help me do it?

I'm just curious...how did you manage to pick up 100 ft. trees? Also, if it is fact that deep, no Radio Shack car is going to be able to receive anything you tell it to do.[&:]

You'll probably need a clodbuster rock crawler to climb over all the trees and other junk you and everybody else have been throwing down there over the years.
