    not very well... lots of the comps depend on speed...and, of course, if you flopped it on its side somehow, it'd be baaaad times trying to recover!

    you are forgetting the Loader part. Rock garden, HA!!! It won't be the same after the run!

    Also how 'Flexy' does a D9 Cat Dozer need to be?

    reminds me of someone on here's windshield stick "K5s, making trailer wider since 1969". How about "D10s, making trails."
