I just wanted to tell you that... IT! COULD! WORK!
I've always wondered why on youtube (generically on the internet) there were trailers resembling real trailers under Traxxas Spartans towed by Summits.
But the Traxxas Summit is not a scaler! I wanted a Traxxas style trailer, with ball bearings, suspensions, I wanted the Spartan to drift in the water by its own and to block itself once it got back on the trailer.
I looked at my Ken Block's Ford Fiesta, and there I found the hubs, the ball bearings and the shock absorbers; for the other parts I chose CAD, then plexiglass laser cut, a bit of aluminium... and the trailer was finished!
And it ACTUALLY WORKS!
So, as the trailer gets into the water, the Traxxas Spartan begins to float; moving the trailer outside the water when the Spartan gets back on it, the hull wedges into a slot which prevents the hull to move back.
So, this is my creation, hope you like it!
Feel free to contact me about it!
