    Trailer for Jato

    Here is my plan, I was thinking of making a trailer to haul my Jato around behind my Revo.

    This is just for purposes of getting my cars from my real car to the track or bashing grounds. I hate having to carry 2 vehicles/my toolbox/nitro bottles.

    I was reading on previous threads that its not good for the Revo to do something like this, well I do not have intentions of doing it day in and day out.

    I obviously want to make this trailer light as possible so I was thinking of making it of sheet metal or thin aluminum piping with a thin sheet of sheet metal for a bed. Does anyone have something like this already frabricated? How well does this work for you? Has it wore anything out in your Revo? Is this really that bad of an idea? Any details that you guys can provide would be awesome.

    Thanks

    the only thing that I can see that doing is stressing the engine some. But seeing as how you can repeatedly romp up very steep grades and bash all day long with it, I don't see how this could be a problem unless you was hauling around a good deal of weight (which the Jato is not). I'd say go for it if all you want to do is pull your Jato around a bit.
    Did my wheel just roll through here?

    sure, go for it. only thing you have to worry about is excessive engine load, and it shouldnt be a problem unless your ripping around full throttle most of the time, or if your pulling through thick grass. i'd like to have one for my nitro x-cellerator.....

    yeah my Revo has the RB Tm323 in it so the power is there when I need it, but I don't see myself trying to pop wheelies with a trailer attached pulling my Jato :P~
