"Extra steel"  ??????????
er, that fer when ya "steelin'" yerself fer that record run :wink:

that's a good list though.......you'd need a 36ft trailer. I have been accused of taking too much to the lake...and that was before I ran a car, strangely it seemed I took less this year when we did, it was an illusion.

For us , getting into the lake is the killer and it's those extra bits of weight that break trailers... So over here we need to make sure we're not lugging something out there that we can borrow, or vice versa.
Few understand what I'm trying to do but they vastly outnumber those who understand why...................

Folks, we're going to need a bigger trailer......
