Default IDEA: rc truck with trailer to haul dragster!

IM sure im not the first to have brought this up...

Im new to the drag scene and have just purchased a slightly used megatech dark thunder to get familiar...not new to the rc scene however.

I was thinking that it would be awesome to have an rc pick up truck or big rig with some sort of trailer (enclosed or flat bed) to haul the drag car. I realize this is out of the question for all of you 1/4 scale guys as you need a full size pick-up to take your cars anywhere lol...

Tamiya has some really cool big rigs, as well as, their realisitc looking "high-lift" kit pick-up trucks... these however are WAY to much $$$ (for me at least)..

bottom line.. just wondering if anyone has any experience or ideas in creating rc trucks with trailers to haul their dragsters...

thanks.

I built on for my boat, It's a New Bright International CXT, bulit the trailer out of some small chanel iron from the hardware store. I gutted the CXT and put new steering, 550 motor & speed control in it. Built a little hitch out back and away we go...

I built this for my CC-01. Was simple enough and could easily pull something larger...

If you look on Ebay in the R/C section you can find some nice Trailers for real good prices.
