This is true I have tested it at much higher speeds, how fast do you drive?

That is a common concern, and I have used mine, and the original one since 1995 and had no problems with it breaking windows or anything. I wouldn't sell it if there was a problem.

I will check that out, but in my defense I am my own customer. This is a product I use and believe in. I am not just hawking something that I wouldn't use, like a typical spammer.

vtrico, how do you think it'd fair on a 2000 mile road trip? i also see that you have bindings on one of the snowboards in both instances. would it work with 2 boards without bindings or would they slide too much everytime you stop and go??

oh and i drive 70-80 on the interstate.

Well I actually tested it with a board without bindings and at substantially high speeds. The board with bindings is my personal board, and the one above it is one I bought off craiglist for 50 bucks but never put bindings on it. But I used the crappier board in testing in case something went wrong, and it worked fine.

Also not pictured I have to update the video and pics. You have a nose cone that fits over the front of the snowboards that helps make it more aerodynamic.

With that being said in all the times I used it I never used it for a long trip like that. Not saying it can't but I just want to be completely honest with you. I have used it at highway speeds, and I think you could do 75, but I wouldn't go much faster than that.

cifex, I wasn't sure what area you were talking about as far as wiredsport, is that a vendor on this site, or is that an actually site, could you provide a link thanks.

[QUOTE=ComeBack_Kid;212394]LOL AGAIN, YOU ARE STILL TYPING You're have no point so all, and your questions lead no where; much of VWs and AUDIs are the same cars and a ton of people on this thread alone have testified to that. You are just wasting everyone's time now and you are below me considering I've been pwning you over and over Since you like to throw out things that don't matter, I'll do the same:

I take it you couldnt answer my questions and still have validity to your argument, so instead you just claim victory for yourself- damn fine internet game you got. I would think you could easily defeat me with factual info if my side of the story was so full of holes.

A ton of people have testified to what exactly? The Audi tech guy didnt even support your babble like you think he did.

I'm actually starting to worry about you, i think i will take donations to see if we can get you a cat-scan. Do you live in a low oxygen environment?

And to alasdair:
Read back and see there were 2 people in this debate. Don't chastise anyone, people can discuss and debate however they want, it doesnt need to fit your codes of conduct
Dude there are only 1-2 cars in VW/Audis lineup that are similar to eachother

the VW Rabbit/GTI use the same chassis as the A3/TT, they share a bunch of components, and thats it. All the other cars use different chassis, engines, drivetrains etc.

The only things that are similar are certain electronics and engine components, but aside from that they are not that similar

you are quite incorrect. my 1999 a4 uses the b5 platform which is the same one used by the passat.
