Here's the pics of JJ's sandrail. He just bought the car and brought it out for it's maiden voyage. As he came down this hill....

(note you can kinda see his tracks on the far right)

...the car slid sideways and pitched in a way where the left front tire just stuck in the sand and flipped the back end of the car right over. Luckily everyone was ok. The car sufferred some damage, but can be fixed.

Sunday morning they managed to get the roof back to almost normal for now. I couldn't beleive how straight they were able to get it! :flipoff: They just used a bottle jack and some wood and look...

Don't worry everybody, he's gonna fix it right though. That was only a temporary fix to be able to go cruise around a little bit.

JJ, sorry about the rail. That really sucks, but like we said before- cars can be fixed or replaced and people can't. I am glad you and everyone was okay. :thumb:

Let me just say thanks to everyone that was able to help out. The only thing I was worried about was the kids. The buggy just like anything else can be fixed. I learned my first newbe lesson, DONT let off when the a$$ end starts to slide out, get back in it to straighten it out. Lesson well learned, the car was handling so well, just got over confident.

So now I need a good fabricator and some new powdercoat. Anyone know of a good place in town? I also need a new trunk/wing built. Glad to see it was built well enough to protect us.

I will definately add B pillars since I will have to re-powdercoat anyway. Thanks all.

sick sand travel.. they do mini's but im sure they are more than capable of taking care of ya.. :D
Raoul Duke: Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. A normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side. This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop heart. Make the bastard chase you. He will follow. But he won't know what to make of your blinker signal that says you are about to turn right. This is to let him know you're pulling off for a proper place to talk. It will take him a moment to realize that he's about to make a 180 degree turn at speed, but you will be ready for it. Brace for the g's, and fast heel-toe work.

Josey can definitely handle it, but he is extremely busy right now. Give him a try though.

Yo JJ,
Give Kevin Bunderson a call, that should be a piece of cake for him.
I take it your new car is not chromolly? Pretty SCAREY cage damage! I rolled my last car
doing a photo shoot with Michael Sommers from Sandsports Magazine, I also had no B pillars, but suffered very little damage to the (chromolly)cage! If it is mild steel, and you have children, you may also consider cross bracing the roof?
Take care dude! Safety First!

They are tough :laughing: , both of them have been going to Dumont sice they were only a month old. They always rode in Grandpas Tatum Sand Demon buggy. So pretty much they have sand in their blood. They are great! :rockon:

Update: I am dropping off the buggy this weekend to Josey @ Sick Sand Travel. He is going to add B-pilars, some crossbracing in the roof, and some misc supports, not to mention changing aroung the bar behind the front seats to get some more back seat leg room. Hopefully I will have it back and all together before I go out on Feb 3rd Weekend. Wish me luck. :huh:
