Thats why no sand car for me. Right now building the car himself my bro-in-laws $130k in. I just cant justify that kind of money to take the damn thing out 6 to 8 times a year. Hell I had a bad enough time trying to justify $19k for a sxs.X3 is my fav! Andrew Buck gave me and my son a 15 minute ride in the first one he built! I can still remember the feeling I got when he was shooting down a dune approaching a g-out and I puckered, and then nothing! It soaked it up as if it wasn't even there! It handled like a slot car! Just absolutely unreal! Especially with him driving! I was going to build one. But then I got into the side-by-side's. With how good they are now, I just can't justify spending the 50 or 60 g and the 2000 hours to build one.
