    Default LC76 with 1HZ is miserably slow?

    Was in a bit of a hurry this morning on the way to work, so was pushing the rev limiter in 4th on the Tata 3.0 DiCOR Curry Diesel up Saartjiesnek.

    I passed an old 300TDi Landy trying its best. Probably it was doing around 80km/h

    Then I passed a LC76 going even slower. Much slower.

    I looked back at some point and the 300TDi had just steamed past the LC76.

    Now I've heard that 1HZ is a snail, but SURELY 4.2L of naturally aspirated diesel is faster than THAT?

    Or not?

    Meeste van die ou tuppeware karretjies verloor 'n klomp plastiek op 'n regte trip. So hy gaan dalk erens maar kom met min en stukkende plastiek terug. Party op low beds, ander kort 'n herbou. 'n 1Hz kort waarskynlik nuwe olie en 'n filter.

    So stadig dat dit my 14h15 vat van Windhoek tot Pretoria, hoe vinnig wil jy nou eintlik ry?

    Sien my GPS log, die top spoed was op 'n gelyk pad sonder wind met 1.1 ton gelaai en met 'n AluCab canopy met Impi RTT. Van Pretoria tot by Soyo in noord Angola en terug.

    So as jy jaloers is bly liewer stil.

    Soos hulle se, jealosy makes you nasty.

    Kom ons vat 'n 1Hz, 'n 3.2 Ranger, 8 digit Amarok, 'n Isuzu, 'n Hilux, 'n Navara en Chinees en 'n Indiaan, laai elkeen met 1,1 ton en ry van Ruacana af langs die Kunene tot by Epupa, dan Van Zyl's pas, op in die Marienflus en af tot by Purros en kyk wie is die vinnigste.

    I believe the moving average is very much more indicative for a flat road

    Ha Ha, lyk my jy het nog nooit overlanding gedoen nie maar jy het baie te se. Was jy al deur Angola? Weet jy waarvan jy praat. Klink nie so as ek lees wat se dinges jy skryf nie.

    I guess it depends how it's driven. With our over landing trips Hermie with his 4.2 80 GX and heavy offroad trailer never cruised much below the speed limit.

    Kyk, as jy en jou hoog swanger vroutjie met hom ry van die Kaap tot by Musina, is die kind 3 jaar oud as julle by Musina aankom.

    Ek vat nooit 'n ou wat 'n Jeep ry ernstig op nie. Hy dink hy is goed maar is in vir 'n groot surprise as hy Afrika aanvat. Was daar al ooit 'n Jeep deur Afrika?

    From Car Magazine:

    Test Summary
    This is the vehicle for cross-country adventures. It retains the Land Cruiser legendary off-road ability and rugged design, but injects a generous dose of practicality in terms of seating comfort and on-road ability into the mix. We proved this by travelling from Cape Town to Oudsthoorn and back in one day on just over one tank of fuel with a full complement of passengers. This trip returned 12,3 litres/100 km, which is pretty decent as the average speed was about 110 km/h
