    Re: Spare wheel braai grid.. Who uses it?

    I have never seen one like in Hedge's OP, but my choice has always been a little fold up grid in a bag - weighs nothing, takes up no space and a grid is easier to clean than a solid flat surface.

    This discussion has now got my mind going: if a tyre is rated for a certain speed, how is that rating affected by load. For example, will a tyre rated for 180km/h on an unloaded Hilux will become...

  12. Re: Why do you want to camp without electricity?

    I think it is a combination of 2 factors: firstly you will have fewer people around (ie less noise, voices, music, push bikes, etc) and secondly the whole experience is different.

    Poll: Re: What is better TC off or TC on?

    Interesting question. IF you have the option to turn it off, I would say it should be off in the circumstances you provided. Having 4 x 4 on distributes the power to all 4 wheels giving you the...
  17. Re: Cost of owning a 4x4 that cost less than R40K

    In this case it almost makes up 50% of the total costs. It skews the numbers IMO.
  18. Re: Cost of owning a 4x4 that cost less than R40K

    surely tires should not be included in this specific case as it applies to any vehicle - unless you had to replace them directly after purchasing.

    Volgens oom Dave Pepler het die voer van voels geen permanente negatiewe effek nie. Dit skep nie die afhanklikheid soos by ander diere nie.

    Also prefer to go "alone". Have camped with others before without a problem. But definitely not in big groups - that just wont work for us.
