Re: Floating SAMUIRI

Large industrial Tractor tires may work. also, stick a few oil drums under the frame.


or..

Go back to him saying:

"Hey buddy, after doing some research on the internet, the samurai proffesionals said that stock tires will work fine due to the vehicles light weight. Just keep it at about 60 mph in 4 high just before you hit the water."

if your friend is as insane as you tell, he will believe it. Then just stand back with a beer and some pretzels/popcorn and watch the show.

Results should be quite comical!!

Re: Floating SAMUIRI

Hey, if they can get "Bigfoot" to float on water, why not a Zuk? They showed on TV a while back where they floated it in a lake and it actually moved at a pretty good speed because the huge lugs on those massive tires acted like paddles.

Re: Floating SAMUIRI

If any of you guys did not see that special on the monster trucks, you missed a real jaw dropper. They were backing Bigfoot part way into a lake for a photo shoot and the rear end unexpectedly bobbed up to the surface just from the bouyancy of the tires. For a stunt, they raced a steam boat on a river and lost, but the boat captain declined a rematch down main street.
