    New aluminum body by KATG Motorsports

    Awesome work. Great looking car. Does the roof have a slight radius to it, but with the frame still being straight?

    Inverter 12volt to 120 volt

    Yep. Slipped a digit. Not 1:1, but 10:1. Memory is not as good as it used to be, should have used a reference.

    Inverter 12volt to 120 volt

    I don't think I messed up on my current draw math at all. In the information and statements you provided I don't see anything that supports your statement about my math being messed up. Perhaps you could get very specific as to where you think my math is messed up.

    Inverter 12volt to 120 volt

    Add up how much power (watts) you plan to use with your inverter, tv, dish etc. That info is usually on the product label. Divide that by 110. The result will give you amps (current). Batteries have an amp hour rating that determines their amount of amps available before recharging. Example: Say you're using 1100 watts with your equipment and you run it for 1 hour; you would deplete your batteries by 10 amp hours, run it for 2 hours = 20 amp hours. So if your batteries were rated at 200 amp hours you could theoretically run your equipment for 20 hours before recharging your batteries. However, as a general rule discharging your batteries below 50% is not good and will reduce your battery life in most cases. So in the example I would not go beyond 10 hours without recharging the batteries. Hope this helps you size the batteries you need. Also keep in mind that in addition to what you're running with your inverter other things in your RV will be drawing power from your batteries, like lights, water pump, fridge, etc. Some people use separate batteries for their inverter so they don't have to worry about that, however you will then need a charger for those batteries which some inverters have already built in. Good luck.

    Do you guys like pics?

    AWESOME pictures! Love the expressions on the Can Am guy's face. Need to get back out to Glamis soon.

    How much is enough?

    You need two of them and you leave them on when you're parked in camp. It's their way of marking their territory.

    How can you say that when it's got your name written all OVER it.

    Who wears a helmet?

    I flipped my sand rail a few years ago and was hanging upside down. When I released the 5 point harness I heard a loud “THUD”. Fortunately it was my helmet hitting the inside of the roof and NOT my head.

    Motorhome + Trailer length

    I'd rather keep my Moho and enclosed under 65 feet and roll the dice at a crap table in Vegas.

    Who wears a helmet?

    My sand rail doesn't have a hood or windshield. So wearing a helmet with a face shield similar to the one posted by Ridered helps keep the sand out of my eyes without having to wear googles. However, I will admit that getting a little sand in my crotch is NOT a bad thing. It reminds of the days gone bye when times were much more simple running with our old school buggies.

    Misc VW parts FREE (OBO)

    I hear that there is an “old school” buggy get together in Glamis on March 23rd. Should be many VW car owners there that would love to have your parts. Good luck.

    This is sand drags

    I'm all for "the dig" at the start. But we'll need a couple of volunteers with shovels to keep filling in the holes.
