    Not certain when it disconnected but guessing it was right before he came into view, 1st frame you see the end fitting and 1/10th second later (@ 10 frames/second) it's wound tight. Guessing heavy sand and having fun was the recipe

    Looking for/Wanted Stock SxS seat belts

    Hey Pat, I got a set. Still figuring out which day I'll be going within the next month or so.

    Finally better cell service at D!

    Yeah I have no idea how they go from a very specific completion date to nothing happening and a very loose completion "date" with a 2 month window (April/May). This is what we saw on Sunday from Memorial hill. Just a road going up the mountain which has been done for over a month. No tower though.

    Another Newbie SXS Question!!

    I appreciate the tips! I will definitely let you know if I come up with more questions, I know I will! I like your emphasis on rolling........that's my greatest fear! Don't wanna risk anyone getting hurt, or ruining the car!

    It doesn't seem like anything is being done to build the Tower I wonder why?

    Wonder if Chad lost any headsets or cables or is curious how a little spot on an axle got polished. Better keep the shoe laces tight....

    Thanks Pete for putting on a great weekend. Also, thank all the guys that helped us get my daughters car out of the hole and back on Sunday. I think Pete needs to sell 3/4 x 3/4 heim joints next year, could finance The whole weekend

    Sunday the carnage continued when Rod's daughter found a nice place to park. oops! We all got together and managed to get it out of there and safely back to camp. Glad nobody was hurt! Then we headed up to @sanddunesaddict's memorial and had a mimosa toast to him.

    I know the bullhorn definitely helped, but I mean STILL! In past years some people never wake up and get moving.

    Buggy Roundup 6 Weekend Trip Reports

    Then on our afternoon run on Friday, right when I was having so much fun and getting into a groove, I drove my car right into a ole big hole. The pics do no justice, but you could park a small buggy in that hole/ witch's eye that we hit. I broke a lower heim and folded the left tie rod back. I was pretty bummed and thought my weekend was ruined, but thankfully everyone in camp came together, had the parts I needed, and we got it back together. I can't thank you guys enough!

    Another Newbie SXS Question!!

    1. Stock tires will work, just not as good as paddles. How many people will be in your machine? If you and 1 passenger, do 8psi rear 10 front. If 4 do 10 rear 12 front. Having 2 psi more In the front will help engage 4wd. And you need to be in 4wd. 2. Use 4wd. 3. Use 4wd. Don't ever stop pointing uphill, or sideways. Only pointing down. If you are side hilling, or going around a bowl, or transitioning... don't slow down to much, you'll roll. When in doubt, throttle out very much applies. 4. Obviously transition parallel to the dune. Turn into it, and just let it transition over. Trust your machine. Don't turn your wheel back into the dune once you transition, you will roll. Just keep rolling straight along the top or turn down. The gas is your friend. If your ass end starts sliding out because you're going to slow around a bowl or whatever, push the skinny pedal. It will straighten you out. Don't slow down to much while transitioning, you'll roll. Use the gas. Like I said, when in doubt..throttle out. Don't buy them right away. If you are a frequent duner and know you'll be coming back quite a bit, yes, paddles make a huge huge difference. Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions. I'll try to help you out the best I can.

    We rolled in Thursday night and just left the car in the trailer. Didn't even unload. We just hung out around Theron's fire until it was a little too cold and then went into @bstecki's trailer and played Cards Against Humanity. Friday was gorgeous weather. Sand was a bit damp but fun! We had a good size group for it only being Friday. VID_20181207_095055954.mp4

      Hello SKINNER,
      I found this picture of your converted kick start to pull start lever.  I want to do this as well.  Where did you find this handle or did you custom make it yourself?  I'm putting this on an ATC70 with a Lifan 125 motor.
      Thanks,
      Brandon
