People do. RC sled pulling is a pretty huge sub culture, and has been going on for the last 20 years

R/C pulling used to be really big in the early 90s, it was all over the magazines which was the only way to get info before the Internet. I don't know about 'huge' now, but it's definitely a hardcore subculture.

It died out in the immediate area, the largest city for 50 miles in any direction, but they did a sled pulling event in the hose show arena at the Syracuse Nationals car show a few years ago, probably still do, and there were dozens of guys. Seems like everybody had at least 2 or 3 trucks, which makes sense given the duration of a typical run and how much down time is between them.

The trucks are fairly simple, but the electronics in the higher classes can run you a lot. When I was toying with building one years ago, I was told the best material for a chassis was a strip of metal threshold for the bottom of a door; cheap and rigid.
