I have hit them fast on a warm spring day with a lot of water and it was like stomping velcro, sent me cartwheeling off the end of the thing.
Thats basically what happened to me. It was super sunny out and the top of the box had a thin layer of water. I found going a little quicker and pressing my tail helps slide along it a little better. Thanks for the replies ! ^^
