tow dolly

I used a tow dolly to bring my car to the track today.It's a bit of a ride so if i break it im kinda screwed.thats why i dont drive it there. lol. Dolly works great,only downside is i need two boards to drive on, and then i can drive onto the dolly ramps or the front bumper wont clear. I have stock front springs in the front too.

if you have an auto and you drag the tires your supposed to remove the DS... I would just back onto the trailer.

I am considering getting a dolly myself

You're supposed to remove the driveshaft on rear wheel drive cars while using a tow dolly, simply because the angle your vehicle is at all of the fluid in the transmission is in the rear of the tranny, with the driveshaft and your transmission is spinning. No lubricant and gears spinning equals ??? (in theory that's why you're supposed to remove it). Here's the catch once you remove the driveshaft all the damn fluid is going to leak out anyways........ I personally haven't seen any damage with them while the driveshaft was left in. Seems like you guys leave them in as well.

Just make sure there's fluid in the rear end, I had an employee that damaged a brand new Moser rear end using a tow dolly, he installed it in his car, didn't add fluid and over the course of 13 miles the rear end was in pieces.
