Guest dew110CSW Posted July 27, 2007 Share Posted July 27, 2007 Been trying one or two lanes to break myself gently in, a Favorite being one that runs along the Walney Island tidal area (at low tide, obviously!). It's totally flat and very easy to drive, the trucks should just follow the ruts and keep smooth although mine seems to enjoy climbing the center. Well got going down it gently, in high 2nd (still struggling to keep it in low!) at about 12mph, the truck was snaking and following the ruts but I managed to keep it going smoothly and flowing until I must have just got too close to the bank and it seemed to dig in, tried to keep up but as soon as one wheel started spinning all the power went and I stalled. Slight panic, but I restarted it, selected first again (still in high) and clicked the lockers across. They came on so a little gentle power. Nothing happened. So a little more, still nothing. by this point thinking I was totally stuck, near full throttle. Bit of wheel spin but she bit and dragged herself back out of the hole she'd dug and we got going. Pulled up on solid ground and walked back to look afterwards... Whoops! Will note to keep more to other side next time and avoid this sticky muck! And some pics of the OneTen afterwards: Tried to get up this mound for an articulation shot, but even in low 1st it was just too steep.
