The inertial stress transfer effects were analyzed for an elastic manifold pulled through a random potential by a force using an infinite-range model. The behavior of dynamic stress overshoots in a simple infinite-range model of depinning was also presented. It was shown that a hybrid transition existed for large overshoots on adiabatically increased force. It was observed that a reversible critical transition exist for smaller overshoots.
