Question Dolly a race car ?

I was wondering what are the rules in different states to dolly a race car.
Does the car has to be registered on the dolly ?

How well a 330ci (rear drive) supports the dolly transportation ?

I can't speak for "All States", but generally the dolly is Tagged, any car going on that dolly is good to go.

If you're towing a front wheel drive Race car on your dolly, I see NO problem. If you're towing a rear wheel drive Race car, consider dropping one end of the drive shaft & tying it up. Also try to tow it on NON race tires, don't hurt your expensive R-comp tires.


Good luck.

Personally, I would just get an open trailer. It's not worth beating up the car on a dolly. You can find used open trailers for under $3000.

I can rent or buy a trailer easily but I have no suv to pull it ...
It takes an suv rated at least 5200lb towing capacity.
