    Hello to those who saw us today at the Victorian 4WD show!

    An idea....

    Maybe also sorting by experience (so novice drivers aren't going out to do the killer tracks) and vehicle capability (so the stocker isn't knee deep in the mud). Listing equipiment could be handy so everybody isn't carry the same items. You could run the vehicle modifications as a points...

    An idea....

    I think sorting the members list by post code and then names would be helpful. That would make it a little eaiser to search for people in your area. Darren

    Nissan 4.2 turbo Intercooled Diesel Cab Chassis 2006

    The choice between electric and hydraulic each present their own pros and cons. Electric require big amp draws which require big dual batteries, heavy cabling, etc. On the other hand hydraulic don't need big amps but require you to tee into your power sterring circut. For this you need the...

    Jeep Patriot 2007

    I know the feeling of having mud everywhere, even on the roof. The kids always love it when the mud is flying. Just remember to have the windows up! Daz

    Hyundai Terracan Highlander 2002

    Yes, many people will bag the Terry because its a Hyundai, but like all 4WD's, a bit of lift and some decent tyres and it will go anywhere. On the Terracan forum sites I've seen a few people discussing their trips to the Cape and across the Simmo towing camper trailers, and they have...

    Hello all

    My old boss had a diesel Ranger. You can hardly tell they are a diesel with the way they perform + they don't have that diesel clatter. Watch out for front mounted intercooler. I've read that they hang low and are eaisly damaged. As with all 4WD's, add some lift and decent tyres and it...

    Hyundai Terracan Highlander 2002

    The Terry can easily keep up with my brother-in-laws lifted, Mickey T MTR tyred Disco. My biggest problem is the standard road tyres, lack of a snorkel, and the fact that its my wife's work/daily driver. On e-bay I paid about $170 for the inverter. The company that sells them reckons the...

    Hyundai Terracan Highlander 2002

    No, the Terry's petrol. I think the line between soft roada's and what are considered "proper" 4WD is becoming blurred. The Terry has seperate chassis construction, low range transfer, and only IFS. Also the Terry is rated to carry 820kg to reach GVM, something most 4WD's can't match...

    e10 fuel

    I filled up with Shell E10 a couple of days ago. I've had a problem with the engine being sluggish (to the point of stalling) under 2000rpm when the engine is cold. After my first drive from work to home (100km), I started the car the next morning. To my amazement, the problem has stopped...

    Beach driving tips needed

    Rookie; Try not to use your brakes in the soft sand to stop, just lift off the accelerator and let the sand slow you down. Its a little unsettling at first, but it means you don't force the wheels into the sand. It makes taking off eaiser. Is the Mav auto or manual? Auto's are better in...

    hey hey

    I've told that there are few good tracks around Telecom (or is it Telsta) tower. A co-worker and his mate travel down there quite regularly. I can find out from him where these tracks are. He is buying a new Narvara soon, we could possibly set a time and a date in, say early March to meet up...
