Anyone ever tried something mad like using a 1/8th 4wd buggy to tow an rc glider up

The only pitfall I can think of is whether the buggy would be heavy enough - equal and opposite reaction and all that...

The buggy is pretty heavy and has plenty of grunt and a fair turn of speed I was given it not working so have replaced the receiver and esc and am using a 2s Lipo I will weigh it and could start of with a Chuck glider
