    Pse PM me for some advice. There are some professional shysters out there who will suggest your engine head gasket also needs replacement.

    Don't fit a Subaru radiator.
    Apparently it is not trail related

    That Haval was fantastic, it's a pitty though they don't come in a turbo diesel. Other than that it must be one of the most under rated vehicles on our market today. If you can pick one up with low mileage at the prices I have seen them go for it is really a bargain for the value you would get.

    Hi Estee,

    Missed you. In honour of your absence, I did the complete trail at road tyre pressure - 2,7 bar.

    I think the XC60 simulated the Hummer quite well, especially in the wheelspin department. It was almost as if you were there .

    Anyway, here are a few links to some bumpercam videos.

    Remember to set playback resolution to 1080p.

    Bit bumpy, sorry. Must be the tyre pressure....

    Thanks for organizing, folks. Went well, in spite of such a large group.

    Absolutely fun day.
    What a great turn out and a great line up of vehicles as mention above.
    Yes, that Haval and Mahindra can come 4x4 any day.
    Hats of of the Volvos, no issues if you have a good set of tyres.
    And a great show by the Subarus.
    As for the rest... ie all the bakkies.. We'll done to all, great show of what TC can actually do.. DL was hardly used of at all.
    Ohhh and we can't fault Steven's Little Suzuki..that Little machine is over capable.

    That was great fun and great organization, good to meet everyone.

    Shame I had to leave before the last obstacle but hopefully I will see on the videos. I would have chickened out anyway most probably. Next time I will book the whole day.

    Thanks everyone. Was a great day!

    Not entirely sure if we accomplished what we set out to do though. Perhaps we need to do it all again in a few weeks...

    Morning All

    Big thanks to Rechard, Andrew, Neil and John for organizing and marshalling. A really FUNtastic day. I hope to transcribe the results by tomorrow morning, so please be patient. As Andrew mentioned, a great turnout of 25 vehicles, so there will be a lot of reporting to do.

    The Outback's radiator may or may not have been trail related, but Matt was giving it all he had especially on the first obstacle. So who knows? It did make it safely home on the flatbed, and thanks to the guys that stopped to see if they could help, especially Andre(?) in his new Defender that stayed to chat while waiting for the flatbed to arrive. Just shows again what a caring bunch of guys are on the forum...

    I agree the Scooby's showed great heart in turning up at all, let alone the effort put in. Well done, guys!

    They are stalling , so it is probably Difflock, but the TC proponents are working out how to change the parameters so they won
