    Default As julle vir my lag...........

    Stupidity reigns.....
    This happened yesterday at Groenkloof. See what happens when trying to impress your wife and kids.

    I did make some serious mistakes, and admit to them like a man. I did not check the depth of the muddy waters, my second mistake was not checking that my 4x4 engaged before storming into this. As I only found out while in the water, the rear right wheel does not turn at all while in 4x4, so I need to get this seen to.

    Two chaps from the mountain biking fraternity did stop to assist, after the giggling stopped, their help was appreciated.

    Being an absolute novice, there are a couple of things that got me, the park charges R350 for a recovery, but sends a ranger with an old, well used rope who promptly wanted to pull me out by the towbar of both vehicles, this scared me a tad and after some deliberation with the ranger and the bikers, we did end up using the recovery points. I would have thought that these guys would be prepared for p@epholle like me?

    Thanks to the two "gatsaag' operators, I would definitely buy you guys a cold one if I could get into contact with you guys.

    Now stop laughing!

    Hehe! Dit lyk lekker! Vasval is maar deel van die pret! So leer jy al die trics om jou self te recover en wat jy nog nodig het om op jou 4x4 te sit soos lekker recovery punte, 'n goeie paar straps ens ens.

    LOL, next time engage 4WD when you enter the trail...
    and don't go driving trails alone, rather post here and let a couple of guys meet up, then you don't have to pay the park recovery fee...
    but so you learn :-)

    Real men dont make mistakes!!!!!

    We test the vehicle to its limits, thats all

    I dont think anyone here has not reached their vehicles limits due to someone elses mistakes obviously

    I believe I am one of the very few people reading this thread (or on the Forum, even) who can say truthfully that I have never, ever got stuck so that I needed someone to recover me.
    But then again, I have never done any 4x4 off-roading either

    Lewies, jy probeer duidelik nie hard genoeg nie! En dan het jy nog die regte voertuig vir 4x4 ook. So dit mag dalk vir jou moeiliker wees om vas te val as wat jy dink!

    Unless you have a diff lock, tc or LS diff this could be normal. If the left rear wheel have no traction and can rotate freely, the right wheel will not rotate.

    Maar ek belowe om kort voor lank daardie aspek reg te stel - ek bedoel om in omstandighede te kom waar vasval ten minste moontlik is. Ek gaan egter nie belowe dat ek sal probeer om vas te sit nie.

    Thanks for the info. I have nothing on a Terracan. Just curious - on a Terracan LSD - do you how much slip before engaging?

    Die Terracan se LSD beteken niks. As jy sit, dan sit jy. Het dit Desember geleer.

    Met die Terracan se LSD kan jy net jou handrem so bietjie optrek om die wiel wat spin te stop en dan trek hy met die ander wiel ook. Somtyds help dit nogal. Het jou LSD die regte olie in en is die LSD se 'tension' nog reg?

    Ek en LouisXander het saam 'n klom olie gekoop, DIE REGTE OLIE....Castrol LSX90 as ek reg kan onthou.

    Oh, and if you don't get stuck...you're not trying hard enough...! Getting stuck is the only way you can learn the limits of yourself and of your vehicle. I would rather get stuck and learn what to do and what not to do than rather than never getting stuck and not knowing the limits and having a major mishap one day...
