    Spartan Custom Aluminum Trailer!!!!!:)

    Finished building my Aluminum Trailer for my Spartan. I am going to finish up my truck hitch this afternoon and post more pics.

    Let me know what you guy's think.
    Can't wait to get the boat screaming across my pond....

    Please don't reply to this message with quote otherwise it will be a hundred pages long with all the pictures.
    Scroll to the bottom of the thread and post a new message in the quick reply box. I appreciate your understanding.

    Thanks for looking...

    You saw my KB on his trailer, and my Spartan on his first trailer too. The quality and detail is awesome, DJ really makes 'em right.

    Thanks Rush. I love your setup with the KB in tow behind your Kawasaki Edition Slash. People who aren't into RC probably think were off our rockers, hahaha.

    No doubt about it, we are off our rockers!! You gotta be a little bit nuts to be in the RC game? Thanks Rustin' Red Rusty, had the one good photo opportunity before I proceeded to start flying the KB on asphalt. Shelf queen for a day.

    Thanks Bug & Mr Nitro
    I do miss that Summit I had for it.
    Haven't had a chance to go outside with her yet. It rained all day yesterday and then it blew 30mph today. There were whitecaps on the pond, looked like the ocean
    Im going away for New Years but I will definitely post a vid on Tuesday. Im dying to get this thing on the water!!

    jman98, here are some hitch pictures I have so that you can get an idea. All depends of the truck/car you have and the ride height. Hope they help..

    Trailer building is on the back burner right now, too busy with real work and just dont have any time on the weekends anymore for my crazy hobby. If you want to try building them yourselves I will send you as much info as pictures as possible.
    Cheers

    I have to agree! One of the best trailers I've ever seen! I would love to have the pans myself. Of course with all my time it will take me till the end of Sumer to build it! Lol but anyways, my t-maxx should have no problem pulling it. It just can't back it in with no reverse! I have a reverse kit for it but from what I've been reading, not the best upgrade to do. Oh well!

    Alrite its been a couple of weeks and ive been working on my version of the trailer and have the majority of it done. So far so good, it was alot easier then i thought it would be i will try and finish up the wheel wells and bow step tonite and post pics up later. The last thing i need to do is come up with a monuting location for the hitch on my summit that can be easly removed. any ideas guys?
