Today I finally got my trike to the beach and tested it on the sand. To admit, was a bit confused by the results. Sand is not an asphalt. The car is dying and hardly overclocking. I was so worried about the brakes, but it turned out to be on the beach, they do not need at all. You just let the gas and the car stops very quickly. It was possible to ride a little over forty kilometers per hour. 42 – 45 and that’s if you press a full gas. On the asphalt, the device accelerated to 60 very quickly and continued to dial, and there is a completely different matter. Depreciation is normal. Although the suspension on the semi axes at the working out of shock absorbers produces a scatter of wheels, they go as if up and to the side which also brake the device as it seemed to me. But overall I liked everything and I think if I change the front wheel for more and change the motor for more powerful than this kid, what costs me then you can safely go along the coast though around the whole sea. For a second I felt like Malcolm Campbell rushing along the beach on her blue bird. But my bird was red and the speed was several times less, but I think I managed to make the scenery so that I felt the same as my dear Malkom and Donald Campbell, Henry Seagrave, John Parry-Thomas and others. And one more moment – after an hour of skating, the propeller was simply ruined by sand and water. I really spoiled the propeller. The conclusion should be made on the propeller protective plates or tape in several layers to roll.
In general, I’m pleased with the trip. Many thanks to Igor who provided his car for transportation of the trike and assistance in testing! And also thanks to the great Karlis, for the shooting and for being not afraid of an early rise and joined the trip!
