    Must be the hardest working 4x4 on the forum. I wonder how many of the claim to fame 4x4`s will handle this type of use daily over a period of time.

    Had a great weekend at Moegatle with the Cruiser Club. We were a number of vehicles and Koos se klip, left for last provided a lot of exitement, two 80’s and a 200 went up and down without drama.
    Some flexing during the day and RTI ramp, best 200 was at 74 whilst one of the 80’s did 78.
    The capability of the 200 was surprising.

    Did you play with the various modes. I did in Mozambique recently near Santa Maria where the sand is similar To Kosi.

    I used normal grass gravel snow mostly as it allows the Landy to drive in a higher gear(lower revs). When the sand looked deeper or softer I would change to sand. It was as if the car climbed out of the sand and travelled on top. Not sure how. I did not keep it there as the engineer in me did not like to drive at these high revs all the time. Not sure why the FJ with us roared away in low range the whole time. I was towing a rubber duck on a trailer that was too wide for the wheel tracks. It handled it all with ease.

    Yeah, gravel,snow for the dirt roads, as soon as we hit heavy sand or dunes then I used sand mode. Also switched off the dsc and even used low range a few times to get out. The problem is the 5.0 sc has so much grunt its easy to get bogged down with too much throttle . But boy does she climb dunes
