Gelukkig het hy nie sy seatbelt aangehad nie...
I feel a lot less wise at 45 than I did at 15.

En hy kon vinnig dink, baie vinnig, en gelukkig het hy nie gestruikel in die sand toe hy uitspring en begin hol het nie

Ja, hy moes vinniger omgedraai het of veiliger sou ees om maar reguit aan te gaan tot hy nie kan en dan te reverse, wat op so lang duin self ook 'n risiko is.

Daai moet jy oefen!
As jy bo wil omdraai mag jy NOOIT maar NOOIT jou voet van die petrol afhaal nie, en op daai punt waar hy gestop het, "baklei" die stuurwiel met jou, hy wil self opdraai, jy moet hom af forseer en dan as hy verby n sekere punt kom wil hy weer self verder draai, dit voel soos n "Roller Coaster", maar dis amazing as jy dit regkry, en baie duur as jy nie...

Die musiek is nogal gepas?

Dit kan tog sekerlik nie so moeilik wees om dit reg te kry nie? Hoppy, as jy so 3 or 4 keer daar was behoort jy dit te bemeester?

Jy begin eers laag op die duin en gaan al hoer, die belangrikste is om jou regtervoet plat the hou en af te draai terwyl jy nog biekie spoed het, nie eers as hy amper stil staan nie. As jy dit bemeester is dit een van die lekkerste truuks. Ons kan dit oefen op die volgende GTG.

Mens baklei meer teen jouself as teen die kar as jy daai draai maak.. veral die eerste paar kere... oefen op die klein duintjies waar jy nie verder as 'n halwe rol sal rol nie.. dan al hoer en hoer soos Hoppy se... :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Hulle het daai Cruiser uit die duine uit gery... :thumbup: :thumbup:

Mmmm...ek wonder hoeveel halwe rolletjies gaan die versekering uitbetaal voor hulle dit sien as 'n hele klomp rolle en jou by die deur uitrol??? :oops:

Ek het die al n paar keer gesien met meer as een ou gebeur... Ek het ook by n ou oom geleer as dit die dag met jou sou gebeur jy jou kardeur so wyd as wat jy kan moet oop maak waar die dan die kar meeste van die kere sal red. Gooi in reverse en gan afdraant... Of dit werk kan ek nie se nie want ek het dit nog nie gesien of probeer nie... maar klink logies...

Where is Bees? Hy het al lekker gat geskop in die duine met 'n 2WD Hilux

If I look at the start of the movie Thys posted, it does not seem like their tyres are very much deflated, maybe we are a bunch of sissies driving Atlantis dunes with our fancy flat tyres?

Pieter, daai duine wil vir my voorkom of hulle baie harder is as Atlantis se duine.
Soos hulle spoed optel voor die klim, lyk dit amper soos n stofpad waarop hulle ry.
