I need some advice, I have an 05 Honda Civic with a manual transmission and a 1.4L engine. My uncle is a Honda mechanic and says I can probably get away with towing 1000lb with it. The sled I have is an 06 Yamaha Attak 1000cc and I've been told it weighs about 650lb with a full tank of gas. I'm considering getting a single place trailer to tow my sled around. I'm not too worried about the engine's ability to move everything, but what I am worried about is traction. My Civic is FWD, I do have some pretty good studded tires on it, Nokian Hakkapeliitta, but they don't stop me from spinning out when it's really icy with no load. Is this something I might be able to get away with on our Alaskan roads or am I just asking for trouble? The only place I ever go out is way down Kinik Goose Bay road in Wasilla out to Flat Horn and Figure 8 Lake, but I know the roads can be pretty slick.
