Default Tonka tow rig 4wd conversion recovery rig and trailer

Well I finally started to convert my Son's Tonka Tow rig. Should be a cool RC on 2.2. My son.

Here is a short video of the steps.

Also building a custom trailer to haul 2 full trail rigs.

I have not seen one of these done yet.

Did my first tow test and fried a 27 turn motor. It was from 1992 so I dont feel so bad, Trailer weighs 9 pounds and each truck weighs almost 8.
