    Independent vs solid axle. No dragging diff pumpkin. Good example.

    Send a Suzuki Sierra through, that will show anything up in mud holes.

    I hope that track is on private property. If not and there is a museum somewhere for irresponsible idiots, that lot should be on display in a prominent position. And we wonder why tracks get closed?

    Not all sube's are equal in the AWD department either. I'm guessing that was a 5 speed auto which gets the variable torque diffs(VTD) which will split up to 100% of the drive to a single wheel with traction. You could see the fronts digging. None of the '4wds' had lockers - the sube's VTD awd is similar to being twin locked. Either that or he had lockers. Add some meaningful clearance and decent rubber as old mate has and the results speak for themselves. Still zero wheel travel though so playing with proper set up 4wds is going to catch it out.

    I think most of the time its the nut behind the wheel that makes the most difference, I could count all the drivers I know that can actually drive their cars to the cars limit NOT the drivers on one hand, well maybe 2 hands but the shoes certainly wouldn't need to come off

    Yeah when I saw that it made me realise why they were getting bogged and the suby not. No idea and poor technique, thats when I knew they were amatures amongst other things.

    Are they attaching that strap to a tow ball? The last recovery they just walk up to the back and drop the strap on and walks away.
