Post  Ads on Thu Jun 09, 2011 1:35 am

as the title says, chasin some advice to build a trailer for the honcho. all ive got in my ideas at the moment is duel wheel flat bed and using small box section for the frame? so im chasing ideas as to what materials to use & where to look to get them. also how to go about the axle set up? ive already got the rc4wd pintle hook.

cheers

this is mine ads, she has no suspension as it is only a shelf queen to sit my drift car on, i just used the hubs off an old nitro car i had here. the arches and are made from steel plate i got off Aaron (sh!t that stuff has come in handy Az Very Happy i have still got some here), the base and ramps are just 3mm ally plate i had left over from the floor in my boat, the A frame and sides are ally box that scotty used to be able to get, and an old servo box as the tool box. it costed me nothing to build but looks great on the shelf lol! sorry no it costed me a set off doll house hinges for the ramps. lol! me in a craft shop buying parts for a doll house you should have seen the chick behind the counters face lol! lol!
