  • Driving the sidewall

    Hello Everyone

    it is really looks cool to have pictures driving the sidewall and splashing sand while going on it but many people don't know the basic rules about it.

    1. You are driving on the SOFT SIDE of the wall and this is the place where most the people ROLLOVER.

    2. The Golden Rule:

    There is no winning or losing in playing with sand, if you have the right skills and your car is having the right power then GO FOR IT , BUT if you feel that you are losing the game and fighting GRAVITY then immediately ABORT THE TRY!!


    You can try it again with the right elements otherwise you only lose if you ROLLOVER !!






    3. Free Play Rule :

    If there are more than ONE DRIVER on the slop they have to agree from where to attack the dune and what is the sequence.
    • Left to right = O.K
    • Right to left = O.K
    • Left & Right = Wrong



    In the above video check the time between 3:02 - 3:18 to see the dangerous attempt.



    Respect the others and give the chance to play too !!

    4. Climbing Rule :

    There people who climbing with D gear or while they are on the side slop they shift the gear, that is dangerous because in that milliseconds to shift from one gear to the other the engine might die or you lose the momentum and ROLL OVER .

    If you want to climb remember that you have to drive in ONE gear either:
    • 1st + 4H
    • 3rd+ 4L
    There are combinations of using other gears while climbing but at least for the people who never tried it, I think it is a good thing to start with.

    thank you Bu Salem ..

    there is no Ego while off roading .. and we should not try to impress any one while driving.

    we should enjoy while paying a lot of attention :)

      Not only in the off roading but in every thing which we do , there should be no Ego in it.
