    If I remember right, this was real close to 40 degrees.

    Personnaly I was down to 45 degrees without trouble except in the underwear area.
    One time I got to 50+ and I felt it was tipping over, so I turned the wheel towards the tilt and gassed it.
    I didn't want to know if it would hold.

    I had a Lev-O-Gage on the dash for this one......it indicated 45* after this little "oopsie".

    Not at all accurate if you ask me! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    That's about right, at 45 degrees you prolly have a 50/50 chance of going over, good one by the way. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
