Scale 1/10th RC Car Trailer

1/10th trailer to fit 1/10th RC touring cars and some small RC crawlers. Tray dimension is 211 x 486mm.

It is cut so that it can be printed on a standard Prusa MK2/MK3 or larger bed, biggest part is 235 x 209mm.

Contains: framing kit, 2 parts rims with hubs, wheel guards, cantilever arm, leaf spring system, light holder and covers for 5mm leds, Wyllis style hook ... etc...
you need to provide: M4 thread rods and 8mm axle housing pipes, some wood boards (or anything you want to use as floor) as well as some M3 and M2 bolts, 8 off MR104 bearings (4x10x4mm), a 6mm drill bit stopper and the tires (rims are 48mm).

I have a few RC boat spares laying around so I used 2 RC boat M4 propeller shaft with their housing, 8mm pipe as wheel axles. You can make your own out of 8mm OD pipe and 4 mm thread rods, you will need to make some sort of sleeve so that the thread rod is held in the center of the housing. the housing length is 259mm, the shaft length is 274mm.

The standby wheel and its fork are coming from an old K7 tape player so I redrawed something similar that can be printed. Again I used RC boat prop shaft and housing as axle but M3 this time, there is a propeller drive dog on top of assembly on which the Handle wheel stand get glued on. You can probably make something more simple with just a M3 thread rod and the provided Stand Wheel Column part.
It need a 6mm drill bit stopper as collet to lock the wheel stand up or down. The stopper height should be 8mm. It uses a M5 bolt as grub screw, I drilled and tapped the screw head to add a handle.

I use slotted aluminum extrusions so as to put more fastening points along the wheel track and the yellow anchor points are frame hanger, I found both items from the local hardware store.

There is a printable hook provided, you can make one out of 4mm welding rod as I did but PLA strength should be plenty as long as you don't go down this ravine with full throttle!

Please make sure to post your Make and give it a like if you feel so. Many thanks.

Pimp My Trailer Project (Complete!)

Attended the 15th Annual Rumble in Rome Race in Rome, NY over a 3 day event and the trailer looked like a charm!! And this was with my entire family there (2 adults, 15 y/o, 11 y/o, 9 y/o and 4 mo. old). The weather was nice (but hot) - had an EZ up at the back of the trailer with a table and plenty of chairs. Nobody was in the trailer at the exact same time, but there were times 4 of us were in there doing stuff and it wasn't bad!!


Here is the new layout I found worked the best. The only modification I am going to make is moving the fridge / microwave to the back of the workbench so I'm more lined up with my tools:




The Haier A/C unit has been replaced by a Wynter 14,000 BTU. The Haier was capable of cooling 320 sqft., and the Wynter 550 to 700 sqft. The window attachment for the hoses with the Wynter is a lot more heavy duty and makes for easier snap in and out than the Haier. I'm very happy with its performance this weekend! The trailer stayed 68 degrees at the hottest point of the day (84), with a lot of opening and closing of the door.





The A/C vent install as pictured in the previous post below worked exactly like it should have.


The only modification I needed to make out there was to quiet the noise coming from my 9500 watt generator. Others around me were complaining about the noise. A couple of Canadian's who traveled from Ontario suggested I get some plywood, lean it up against the generator to deflect the noise, then park my car in front of it. The noise dropped a good 15 decibels and nobody complained the rest of the time there. A $15.00 fix for a sheet of plywood from Lowe's and not will be coming with me to future races.


All in all - I expect this to be my last post on the topic now that everything is working as it should. It was a fun build... in case you may be thinking about emulating such a thing, here is the costs I have into it:

Car trailer plans rc

I had no idea that this thread existed until today, I just updated my large scale jeep build w/ a trailer build but I' transfer the trailer section over here.

here's a new update, I started building a HD trailer for the Jeep. I've seen a few in here so I didn't want to copy anyone elses work, so I started by measuring out something that would be a bit narrower then the tow rig ( Jeep), I wanted a leaf spring suspension and a HD axle. I haven't decided if I'll make it into a cargo utility box or maybe some type of pop-up shelter, my driver whines as much as 'survivor man' when he has to sleep on the dirt!

After a bit of measuring I came up with a 3' x 5' trailer, this allowed me to not have any wheel wells inside of the cargo area and it's still not as wide as the Jeep. The frame is all brazed together so there's no hardware to come loose and fall off on the trail! The axle is the second one that I've built, the first attempt was in a different thread in the 'general scaler' section, I managed to destroy one of the spindles while trying to make the axle wide enough so I had to start over again today.

Here's the basic frame.




Here's the HD axle, I modified some CAC hub adapter to use bearings so that each tire can spin freely.




Here's everything semi-assembled so I could get an idea of the height of the hitch. I still need to make some shackles for the rear of the leafs.





This is a fun project, it should be stout enough to survive being bashed into rocks without breaking!

    DefaultDieHarder's Tandem Axle 'Crawler Hauler' Trailer Build

    Hi Guys!
    It all started a little over a year ago around the middle of February 2014. I started with literally, two pieces of aluminum angle each cut in half to form four sides of an imagined trailer. I then added one side of the main cross-brace to support the dovetail.



    The black anodized 1/2" x 3/4" x 1/16" angle is extra from dad's workplace. I got the 1/2" x 1/2" x 1/16" aluminum angle from Menards, along with some 1/2" x 3/8" x 1/16" aluminum channel. While I was there I picked up a handy-panel for the trailer's deck.



    In order to make the dovetail ramp, I had to bend the side rails. So I measured out the angle and cut a triangle in the side of the side rails, bent the rails down to the correct degree, added the other side of the main cross-brace, and bent the cross-braces to a tighter than 90* angle. I bolted the cross-braces together with 4-40 machine screws and locknuts. This formed the support for the ramp and really stiffed it up.



    Next was building the tongue. I cut a piece of the channel I specified above and cut a slot in the front side of the trailer for the channel to fall in. I also added another cross-brace to support the tongue farther down the trailer, tying it in better and making it strong. After many prototypes, the tongue's side braces became existent, and tied the tongue to the front of the trailer a second time. For the photos, most of the hardware is mock up.



    With the tongue in place, I decided that I wanted a suspension system. Most of the other RC trailers I saw on the web either didn't have suspension or were a sliding leaf setup. I think I made a thread here on RCU a couple months back about tandem suspension systems for a trailer. So unlike what I had seen, I opted for the double-eye leafs to try and get some legit articulation, while supporting the weight of a 6lb SCX10. I used Tamiya Hi-lift leafs A, B, D, and E. I couldn't find leaf C available anywhere, so I replaced it with leaf E in the stack.

    Next was the wood. The handy-panel had been an eyesore in my room, banging against my closet doors every time I went to get a shirt. Something had to change...

    I measured the deck twice and with the help of dad, cut it once with an ancient but accurate radial arm saw. I decided that because of the overlapping metal and the changed deck mounting surfaces, the best bet would be to router the front and back of the deck and make the metal to wood transition of the deck smooth and level. This would leave the side rails 1/16" higher than the wood deck, which I liked.

    Something else I had to have was LED lighting. I figured on 19 LEDs on the trailer, but ended up installing 13 for simplicity in where the wire would have to run. LED lighting was totally new to me. I've NEVER soldered to, installed, or even ordered LED lights. After lots of research, I found a guy on eBay who sold me (30) 5mm 6v LED lights (10 red [flat tip], 10 yellow [flat tip], and 10 white [regular]). They came with a resister already installed and the wires stripped and tinned, ready to solder. There wasn't much of a side rail left to put LEDs in after the 1/10" of wood subtracted from the 7/16" inside the angle, so the LED holes just barely made it on. I looked at the metal (chrome) LED holders, but they were too big to fit on the side rail. I didn't like it either how it was impossible to install the plastic holder on the LED that goes in the metal part, since the LED already had a resister solder on. So I bought some simple black plastic ones (which turned out GREAT!). At this point, I replaced all the mock up hardware with 4-40s of the correct lengths, washers where need be, and locknuts on everything.

    And then the mail came...



    I used Duratrax Evader ST front axle stubs, Duratrax bearings, Duratrax EXT2 rims, and Pro-Line 2.2 All-Terrain Badlands with stock foams. While Everything was starting to come together, the G6 started to get excited...



    All the LEDs soldered in great! I had no trouble and I believe I did in fact improve my soldering skills. I used a 20AWG main wire to hook in to the LEDs and then ran it out through the tongue into a JST connector to connect to the truck.

    On to the axles. I had to think about the exact design for quite a long time before finally executing it. I also took awhile to get my hands on some 1/2" x 1/2" solid aluminum bar to form them from. So basically I cut two lengths of the bar each 14.375" long. I setup the drill press and drilled a hole in each end of each axle 3/4" deep and 0.246" dia., which is press-fit for the 0.25" Duratrax axle stubs. I drilled a hole through the axle near the end, passing through the press-fit hole. Since the axle stub already had an existing hole, I press-fitted the stubs into the ends of the axles, lining up the holes in the stub with the cross holes in the axle, and put a 4-40 machine screw and locknut through to act as a cross-pin and ultimately preventing the axle stub from pulling out. This made a really strong axle setup and there was no play whatsoever.

    Alright, so I got all that put together and it was really looking great. So decided to add some tie downs. I went brain dead. Later I intend to make bungee cords or solid straps from hair ties and paper clips or maybe ribbon and paper clips. The best I could come up with for tie downs were these little washer assemblies. Looks like something you'd see at a high voltage power station. Oh, and decals! Make everything so much cooler.



    I put the tie downs all over in an organized pattern, so I should have no trouble finding a spot to grab on. On another note, the leaf spring suspension needed some sort of limiting system. So I installed snubbers, just like the real deal. When loaded, the snubbers do not bottom out the suspension, so there is still suspension while it's loaded, which is exactly how I imagined it. Also, I needed a hitch system. So thinking scale again, I literally used an Evader ST camber, a Losi ball cup from RustyUs (thanks bud!), and a ball stud. I used some more of the 1" x 1/4" aluminum bar stock and cut out two rectangular pieces of the correct dimensions. I then drilled holes through the longest part of them and press-fit the square mid-section of the camber into the first rectangle. Then I slid the other rectangular piece behind the first one and tighten a nut down on the end. This constantly pulls the camber into the press-fit and doesn't allow it to move back or forward AT ALL. Totally tight with no play. I then screwed the ball cup on the open end of the camber and bolted the two rectangular pieces up into the end of the tongue (channel). This gave me half of the hitch system. BTW, I used hot-glue 'bridges' to hold the LED wiring to the trailer. It worked great! I even made service loops in case I ever need to take it apart. That's actually just an excuse to not have to cut and re-strip the LED wires...

    But wait! There's more!

    To pull this monster of a trailer and a 6lb crawler on it, BIG power and torque came to mind. Normally that would be the crawler, but since it was being pulled, something else had to do. For whoever didn't see the Bonzer Cross Tiger (TL-01 copy) plow truck thread on here long ago, I built a really powerful truck using a Bonzer Cross Tiger, VXL3S ESC, Tekin Gen2 13.5T sensored motor, RC4WD Ultra Compact Gear Reduction Unit, Aluminum Spur, Aluminum motor mount (special thanks to Phmaximus! The thing doesn't move at all!), a 2S Venom lipo, FlySky radio system (special thanks to EXT2Rob for the GT3C, it works wonderfully for what I'm doing!), and locked suspension/rear diff. This is the truck I planned to use. So I put shocks back on the front and built a custom, yet simple hitch for the trailer to hook up to:



    Back to LEDs. I wired the Bonzer Cross Tiger green body with LEDs. There are 4 white regular headlights, 2 yellow flat tipped lights up front next to the headlights, and 4 red flat tipped taillights on the back. All the LEDs on both the truck and trailer are wired in parallel. So where is this power supposed to come from? I decided against running an extra battery pack, I wanted everything to drain from the main battery. After some extensive research and contact with members from other forums as well as a few conversations with Traxxas, I concluded that the auxiliary fan lead on my VXL3S ESC was capable of supplying 6V and 4600mA to 23 LED lights. I wired a JST outlet near the rear of the truck with enough length to allow the trailer to jackknife and still keep the wires from getting taunt. I also wired an outlet for the body and it's lights to plug in. This all became one big harness that funneled into the single lead coming off the ESC. I plugged it all it, fired it up, and ran it for an hour and a half with no overheating issues or any issues at all for that matter. As of now, I've run about four packs through the setup and it's proven cool and reliable. Last photo shoot:

    And that's about it. About half of this project was designed and drawn up before I began building it. It took 1 year 2 months to complete the mods to the truck and the build of the trailer. However I only worked on in my spare time which is why it took so long. Hundreds of hours have been dedicated to thinking about it/reading and making threads and somewhere around 50-60hrs spent tinkering, staring, screwing around in the garage, etc. before this thing came rolling out. I try my best to do the highest quality of work I can. During the build, I made 56 prototype parts and recycled all the extra metal. I never at one point just 'eye-balled' it and threw some part of the trailer together. EVERYTHING was measured out, cut, formed, sanded, ground, assembled, drilled, and labeled to an exact specification. The calipers and I became best friends... I made sure to do the entire build in an extremely organized manner and to follow my road map/blueprints.

    The budget for the trailer was $150. The idea was to come up with a better trailer for less than what a new one from RC4WD costs. I do not think it's even close to being better in all ways, but I do believe it's better in some. The costs of everything came just a few dollars shy of the $150 mark.

    In the next few weeks or so I intend to do a video with the new rig and some mud-crawling. It should be posted on my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbj...9i8_R3WXqNvKVw

    I learned a LOT and really had fun doing it. That's what the hobby is about, right? Having fun, and I really hope even more fun and enjoyment comes my way when I go to play with my new rig. I'm so addicted... Thanks to everybody for the awesome advice, help, parts, and support! I couldn't do it without you! I really enjoy being a member here on RCU!

    If you have any questions on ANYTHING, be sure to ask!
