    Towing a 3S, help! Fast!

    Hey guys, I'm on my phone, atm, so excuse any hiccups.

    I an few hours, I'll hopefully be towing back my new stealth shell from across the country.

    The car lacks an engine and transmission, and as such, were taking the cheaper method, and plan on flat towing it back. Just now, about an hour away from our destination, we realized something we overlooked..

    With the axles out off the car, will the wheel hubs hold? A faster response would be MUCH appreciated!

    The wheel bearings will fall apart fast. At least get a tow dolly. You need it.

    We did just that.

    Another fun question, possible to use the bumper shocks as a tow point, or will they pull apart?

    I definitely would NOT. You are really going to be much better off getting a tow dolly. You will thank yourself for it later.

    Normally, I'd follow your word like a god that you are, stealthee, but its just not in the budget.
