    First trip out after the rain Bairnsdale Suzi crew

    It is wider and has all mod cons traction control works well off road with decent tyres it would be as good as a standard Sierra and has much more driver comfort but it is not as much fun to drive which is why we drive old Zooks. As always it depends what you are looking for in your 4wd.

    Another thought a good way to learn the ropes is to join a 4WD club most clubs are really helpful and love to teach new drivers good practice it is also good from a social point of view.

    Beginners Tracks South East Melbourne

    The main thing with water crossings is to check depth, first walk it if doubtful, a water bra or tarp over front will keep the engine dryer but must cover the whole intake area.

    Haunted Stream Closed

    There are a couple of small bogholes that you can not avoid but base is solid and not deep take them slow, the climb out of the 4th crossing I think is the steepest but is easy if dry the best line is to the right .You will be fine besides there will be lots of cars through at Easter.
