After finishing up the winch system, I went for the all important shakedown test, featuring Wabi~Sabi! Haha…
All went as expected. I had my fiancée in the car for steering and safety (since my driveway is inclined down). You know what… here’s a video of it (you can mute it, /wink):
Don’t fret about me standing in front of the winch cable, yada-yada-yada, calculated risk.
After that, I used my newly acquired straps to secure the car on the trailer:
I had to compromise due to low budget so this is NOT my end all setup but it’s a very good one. In all, it’s a combo of 4 wheel nets paired with 4 wheel straps. I wish that I could afford the whole MAC axle strap set but I had to settle with the axle straps only. BTW, do get the 36″ straps as the 24″ would have been too short for 255 wide tires.
Ready to go for the dyno tune!
(small update: after 2 trips netting over 500 miles, the car never budged a single inch)
