Rosewood 180cc with 80% nozzles, Termy modded 17* HPOP, International bellowed up pipes, fs-2500, DP Tunes. A few other things here and there...

You could always go the cheap route and put a bunch of sand bags in the bed of the truck.....

Or this way...

Sounds like a good way to put a lot of sand on the road! Not sure how weight is going to keep the axle from warpping. I've had some major issues with this at the track like here. Best way to cure it is with traction bars. The ones with a solid mount at the frame and one mount on the axle work OK. But for the best all out you want two mounts on the axle with a shackle of some sort on the frame. This will totally eliminate all axle wrap.

He didn't say it was from racing like the video, so I assumed it might have been from going through some sand dunes or something like that..

Didn't know it was axle warping.:shrug: My bad.
