Great video, excellent vehicles. I saw that last Sherman had a little trouble with slippage and I've been having the same problem in my trailer. Was that one all plastic? I think the all plastic tanks don't have enough weight to keep them from slipping like that. I was thinking of gluing some 500 grit sandpaper to the ramp to see if that will give it better traction.

Hi,

Thanks you!

jes, the last one (Jumo) is plastic, metal tracks, but rest plastik.
On the ramps are a kind of rubber.....soft, so it has normaly good gripp.
But the RC system was working a bit stressy....i dont know why.....

So what do you use to raise and lower the ramps? Did you do a build thread on the trailer? I'm in the process of building a trailer for a friend using the Bruder lowboy for a base, and I'd like to make the ramps RC but I've heard it's rather expensive. Any advice?

Thank you, that looks like a fairly simple set up, so it should be very reliable. I might have a go at that on one of the trailers I'm building.
