Well my friends, here at the RCSparks Studios we like to promote creativity and expansion of the mind. The Rude Boyz RC Fab Shop have certainly stepped out of the box and delivered an amazing piece of RC architecture. This steel Scale Trailer is Hand Made, and has real sealed dual axles, with a leaf spring suspension.
Behold - The Prototype – Model# “Kari-1″
From what the owner of the Rude Boyz RC Fab Shop could tell RCSparks, is that this is the original, newly designed Scale 4×4 RC Trailer. The frame is made from rigid steel and is fully seam welded in place. There is rumour that there will be Metal Tie Down Loops welded to the deck in future models. More info to come when RCSparks Studios gets word from Rude Boyz Garage.
The corrugated Steel Decks are most impressive. Sealed into place with a layering of the frame/deck work, the added grip of the flatbed offers the Muddiest tire to climb up on board. The rigid construction of the suspension offers a lot of resistance with minimal bounce for those extra heavy rigs.
Above is a picture of a 1/16th Sized RC Tank with Metal Treads. It fits quite easily in the width of the trailer. I was waiting to see that my tank was too big… but it fit perfectly.
Next to be tested was a New Axial Dingo 1/10th Scale 4X4 Truck. This thing is pretty boxy.. but should fit nicely on the trailer. Lets see if the trailer is wide enough.
The term “Like a Glove” comes to mind. Nice Job Guys – this trailer is starting to really add up for me. There is plenty of room to spare in this trailer, enough to fit a 2.2 Sized Rock Crawler or Mudder into.
The total weight of the trailer is to be about expected. Between 5-8 pounds from what we understand. As far as the RCSparks Studio has been told, the Rude Boyz RC Fab Shop is taking Limited Orders on these trailers, and they are already working on another Wooden Deck design. Depending on the model of trailer, the price range for these custom made trailers start at a base price $250 CAD, (Just for the deck) and does not come with tires, wheel wells and it doesn’t Include the cost of shipping.
We have also been told that each trailer has a Custom Hitch design for easy hookup. You will have to fabricate your own Hitch on your RC, but RCSparks has been told that the Rude Boyz RC Fab Shop are already designing a Drop Down Hitch for Most Major Types of 1/10th Scale Model trucks.
