    I have the ideal facilities to test this, all kinds of different terrain, sand , rock , boulders , gravel , dunes, river, you name it, from grade 2 up to grade 5.
    When can I expect to see you?

    I think we need to increase the sample size though, Renier, Dirk, Andrew?

    Oh , and pack a compressor.

    Sean is an anti deflatist... It will not be a fair challenge.

    There will have to be a caveat though, if you don't deflate you recover yourself .

    I am working on my schedule to join in somewhere, but for this challenge I thought we would want to include some serious dunes in the evaluation as well.
    I have all of those different kinds of terrain here at Klein Pella.

    Thirsty.

    Despite appearances, they are small inside, boot space is minimal.

    There are two types, Luxury and Adventure.

    The 3.7 Adventure has the same as the V8 but no FDL and 4:10 ratio

    Luxury has TC 4H, 4H CDL, 4L CDL


    Very active club, lots of technical knowledge and assistance. Specialist workshop (JHB) for servicing and repairs, and RDG do all transmission repairs and servicing. They have approved specialist GM skills and knowledge.

    Parts are available from local ex GM dealers, breakers, club and of course import from the US.
    Thx.

    Nothing further to report. I will probably change my tyres due to boredom during the course of the year. The Governor is now sitting at 312710km. On August 30th 2024, it will be 12 years since I bought it.
