    Spike on the move at AD. Looking at the speed one would never guess it is a diesel.

    Who all attended? Looks like it was fun. That Jeep looks smart. Unfortunately had to many things to take care of today, Aunty says we need to do some other things for a bit first. 4 4x4 Weekends out of the last five would have been pushing it.

    If it was a liquid fuelled rocket or a bicycle, Spike would drive it the same way!

    SIMON he dissapeared behind the dune for 5 minutes and came back a different man. I am sure he put something in the tank. You know the racing drivers. He had a sort of addrenaline rush or something. He was also practicing for buffelpoort next weekend, maybe substituting sand for water maybe.

    Shot for the invite Ian. It was a lekker day. Pity we didn't get the first one on film! Couldn't quite pull it off again no matter how many times I tried.

    It's cool. Tyres scrape quite badly against the steering box. Going to have to put a stopper or whatever in to stop my turning range otherwise I'll chow the tyre.

    Fuel consumption up hectically

    Road noise very bad

    Wow factor and admiring comments just great 8)

    Ian I WAS getting 740km to 780km per 86litres depending on my driving, and sometimes more sometimes less than that.

    First tank of juice with the new tyres....618km.

    I think it should now be renamed Sandcab or Dunecab

    Jys lekker wintie met daai wa van jou. Die "nou" oukies gaan jou kap.

    Maybe you should definitally get the extra set of rimms for these monster tyres. A bigger offset may then also sort your rubbing against the steering box issue.
