    Hi all,

    Is it possible to turn the steering wheel without the engine started?

    It doesnt feel like it wants to go but dont want to force it too much incase i break something. It wont start and want to get it on the driveway

    It'll be fine, just make sure the steering lock isn't on!!

    Also pump the front tyres up to 40psi ish that'll make it easier

    Thanks guys atleast i can get it on the driveway for the night. Didnt want to force it if it wasnt meant to turn with the engine off.

    Now i have to go try push it alone, hopefully these 100mph winds will help me haha
