Thumbs up Adjustable goose neck for RC4WD lowboy

RC-Welt just released a video of an ajustable goose neck that they will soon be selling for the RC4WD lowboy trailer. Would be cool to see if RC4WD offers it as an option.

thats a great piece... makes the trailer so much more usable, I was leaning towards the trailer with ramps. But much rather the look of the lowboy.

Nice find farmer. Like RC Welt, have their bigger bucket/ripper and manual quick release for the 4200. Hope they get some good fittings on the ends of those pins though.

My next purchase will be a lowboy if they bring that adjustable goose neck to market. My stretched Bruder just doesn't handle 30lb machines very well

I emailed RC-Welt about the goose neck. Got a reply the very next day from Julian, they are still finalizing the design and production details so nothing is set in stone as far as price or delivery date yet. He promised to email me as soon as it is available in their store. As soon as I hear from them I'll share it here.

I was watching a few review vids on the RC4WD lowboys and it looks like the rear axles are solid? maning that if the LH wheel turns so does the other side....is this true? will a tamiya axle fit in place to solve this issue?

Correct both wheels on the same axle turn together.
I run these axles on my dump trailer and the wheels turn independently.

I was just suprised to see that the trailer that hauls such heavy stuff had locked axles. lots of drag in a turn from non powered locked axles
