    gearing, lockers, and some sand experiance, cant start slow like on dirt or anything, otherwise you'll just spin your tires and sink in (well with swampers you will) so a tug to start off and keep the momentum is all it takes /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    oooh... I thought it would be the same for dirt and sand, but you have a point with sand... I couldn't imagine myself 'wheeling in the desert... I'd be terrified to be alone and get stuck... then winches become useless because there are no trees /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
