If my trailer didn't have such a steep incline,  I wouldn't use one either. I've been using a hand winch, and it sucks.  I need to plumb in a hydraulic brake lock on the rail, so that I can just drive up and lock the brakes.  As it currently is, leaving it in gear won't keep it from rolling backwards.

not sure what kind of trailer you have that is so steep that the rail is rolling through the compression. or are you talking about parking on the ramps and then winching it on? got a pic? you have me curious now.

I'm thanking the trike. it lost oil pressure. should be fun if the front end will stay down. my oil green Baja has a built type 1  trans in it. I have started taking it apart to update it.  So that trans will be going in the trike. it should hold up well to the new motor. been trying to clean up the shop and clear some space to do the Baja build that I hope to start soon. I work with some Harley Davison  guys. one has a blower on it. the other is turboed. both put out around 200hp. I will be fun for a old fat man to  roll up on them, on the pink trike and walking away from them . lol lol

i didnt even know lexus had v8's in them. there used to be a company called sand rocket that built front engine sand rails. not sure if there around anymore. not a popular configuration over here.


any lexus model that starts with 4 like the ls 430 or gs 430 will have a V8 in it, 4.3 lt a bit over 300hp quad cam engine, they are really cheap over here, you can buy a working driving car for £300, I have a few kicking around the place and in other projects




I can see the appeal of rear engine with wanting all the weight over the back wheels for traction and popping wheelies lol

baloo look in the video section labeled sandracer1 trip     

the drone they use gives the landscape a unique view imo.

had a look through those, just amazing , you guys are so lucky we can only dream of stuff like that,

nice camera work too, I notice the sand is absolutely covered in tyre tracks does it get really busy there at times then  if it does I bet that is dangerous with buggys flying about all over the place, you seem to have the place to your selves in those vids that's cool, when you go there how long do you stay for ?
