as you can see here it is currently elbows out

To quote BrandonYJ the shackle expert who has the FAQ up

However if you read the whole thread I don't see how it would make a huge difference
Mine
Someone else with a muce sharper angle.

Just bring it in and we'll change it.

My a/t's do amazing on the sand but I didn't know what exactly the grounds would be like. Is it basically just cruising the beach? Or what? Cause Im leaning on coming cause I gotta get out of town. Should have my antenna reinstalled this weekend.

Oh I figured I should ask if anyone has OBA? lol, Or are we all going to go search for air after? I know where a few gas stations are. Or I have a compressor and can bring it then plug it into a full hook-up site at Fort Stevens I guess :shh: but they may not like it.

Yeah, I may do the same thing, however the more I think about it the more hooking up for a few minutes at fort stevens sounds good. lol, my compressor is fast and free.

Thats a good point. If you go that route, do you mind if I use it?

I have a little clip-on compressor that rocks! Airs my 31's from 12 to 32 PSI in about 5 minutes each. Gives one a chance to BS while airing up. You're all welcome to use it, as long as it lasts. lol
