Video Examples of what not to do

Mon Aug 08, 2011 12:42 pm

Hi everyone.

Thought i would share with you some examples found on youtube in what you should never/ avoid in certain situations in the desert.

1.Never try turning around in reverse while on a steep incline! Just go straight back down in a;; the way to the bottom.

2. Come to fast when cpming over the crest of a dune. have enough speed to get the majority of the car over but not fly over or do it (PSYCHO Style lool )

1 of worst case(s) but funny could be this:

3. Dont get too full of yourself + dont fight gravity loool (you can skip to last 20 seconds of video)

4. if you get stuck or need to reverse, always remember to check around you for other cars and people. It is very easy to forget these small things during situations

5. Check the angle of a dune as you dont want to hit it full on and damage youre vehicle. (skip to 1:48)

Thats All for now, Anyone got any helpfull videos/expalnationsm post them here :)




And whatever you do, dont get the misses angry or this could happen to you (watch out Shabab, u could b next)

The 3rd one down reminds me of a certain White Jeep when owned by another Marshal of the Club.
