    You mean 50% incline, i.e. 45 degree*0.5=22.5 degrees. To my knowledge no vehicle can do more than 100% i.e. 45 degrees.

    If you assume that the camera man was standing nice and level, a quick measurement seems to come out at 40deg... 89% angle

    Ek dink ons het n baie lekker dag gehad en wil weer eens vir almal dankie se wat daar was.

    Maar een ding wat my op geval het is hoe onverantwoordelik party mense kan wees met hulle 4x4's veral die man met die blou isuzu op Gert se klip
    Met mense agter op sy bakkie!!!!!!
    En die man het nie gery om te kyk of hy gert se klip
    kan uit ry sonder om die voertuig seer te maak
    hy is op soos n besetinne en af en sommer in tru rat weer op die isuzu het meer vas gekap as iets anders.
    Nou wonder mense hoekom word 4x4's op sekere plekke belet.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Kyk die versnaperings wat in die hand vasgehou word, dan sal jy verstaan hoekom hul so sterk is en nie omgee nie !

    brandewyn het nie brieke nie!

    And then it's a very sad unfortunate story when someone gets killed....... gmph!

    Is it due to lack of knowledge or do we leave them to clean up the gene pool?

    These are then also often the 'type' you cannot approach about the matter, as the fists come out very quickly. Darwin Awards here we come.

I'll give him top marks for sportsmanship (but then again - he still needs to ask for his daughter's hand in marriage from the Fortuner owner, the father-in-law-to-be?? So maybe there's a strategy in place here? )

    The Fortuner followed and showed how it should be done.... and so did the Q7.

    At that the ML vs Fortuner competition was settled and everybody just got on with enjoying the day (with neither ML nor Fortuner attempting "Gert se klip")
    I was a bit unfamilair with the Ml in 4x4 for it is auto but so you learn (elke sport het sy beserings)
    Wil net regstel as julle na vroeer threads kyk ons is die 6de Jan Getroud
    Die was net n ontmoeting ek en Swambo het in die bos getrou net ons 2 aleen

    Sal graag wil sien en hoor (veral die comments na die bumper die grond getref het)
