    Baie geluk.

    Walter, I've always wondered what length tyre skid marks one can achieve on tar with a 4.5 EFI?

    If the gearbox didnt keep grinding gears when floorshifting I am sure tyres would have kept making skid marks to 3rd gear.

    So I could negotiate a premium for comprehensive cover (including roadside assist and repatriation to Windhoek in SADC) for N$ 800. I think that is a fair price!!

    my tyres staan ook einde se kant toe, het ook 285's op en so nou en dan dink ek aan daai 35's, hulle lyk goed, maar dan weer, die 285's werk so lekker. Die Cruiser trek lekker en as ek so net oor 120 km/h ry sit die revs net onder 3000, die spot waar die petrol pomp oop maak, so hy ry redelik ekonomies, nie dat ek petrol verbruik meer meet nie

    ek weet dit is baie, maar ek het 'n groot tenk.

    Ek het laas naweek so 700 km's op teer gedoen, hou gewoontlik nie daarvan om dit te doen nie, dit is platkar werk daai, en ek het ook nie die 120 km/h ding gedoen nie , en net weer gesien daai Cruiser kan cruise met die beste van hulle, dang ek hou van my Cruiser.

    Nys daai Cruiser lyk baie mooi, jy gaan nog baie goeie tye met hom he, geniet dit.

    PS: Ek sou worry oor daai dodgy ou daar in Swakop
