    Please...
    I think in total it is almost 1600 photos.
    like Ian said he will try a different way to share the photos.

    Unfortunately I don't know of a different way to share so many photos.

    No worries. MarcR also pinged me. Between the two of us, we'll make a plan and put them somewhere more user friendly.

    A picture says a thousand words, but a video shows a thousand pictures!

    I'm already dumping the stuff to DropBox. So no need to duplicate this. I'll be pinging the link in about an hour.

    Edit: I see you've shared the zip file. I'm uploading the individual files so that people can preview the stuff. I'm not editing or selecting images - basically the contents of the zip file (~1400 files). I'll send the link when done.

    Ok cool that would be better. I will leave my links up though just in case anyone wants the full zip files as I have already uploaded.

    E.g., Locker become Lokka, Car becomes Kaa, Forerunner become Forannaa.

    Soon, you'll be twanging like a pro .

    Hmmm. I think that some of these rules will actually also bypass various search and replace (ie: butterfly) type filters on the forum...

    Should I take an antidote ?

    video currently uploading. not long now...


    was getting a bit big in the megabytes department, so I didn't put in everyones runs at all obstacles. I think (hope) I got everyones run at the first obstacle at least though.

    some interesting things I picked up on going through some of the vids (not all of which is in the YouTube vid), but, The white Amaroks suspension somehow seemed more flexing and more capable than the blue? Is there an aftermarket difference? Or do 3.0 V6 vs 2.0 Tdi suspensions differ? V6 sounds silky smooth though...

    the whole thing was an interesting exercise, and very enjoyable.

    If we did another one of these testing days (in the interests of automobile technical sciences of course, and not in any way for fun ) , what shall we do differently?

    How about a stopping marker next to, for example the right front tyre, on the most difficult point of an obstacle with a compulsory stop and pull away?


    Probably not really possible, but would be interesting to see completely stock vehicles (even with manufacturer tyres), all with equal tyre pressures.

    I think the only completely stock vehicles with standard size tyres on the day were Subaru Outback, Haval H9, Defender, Jeep Trailhawk, and maybe one of the Hilux's? Did I miss any?

    I dumped the photographs on Drop Box. The link is here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/w6fkm8yei...6Ygy3RVba?dl=0

    I've merely extracted the files and copied them to the folder as I do not have time to sort them out / similar, and there are ~1400 photographs there, so it may take a while for people to browse through them all.

    I think (only think, Stephen to confirm) the white Amarok has a 25mm lift... Apart from the tyres, mine (the blue) is totally stock...

    Ahh yes indeed. Forgot the Disco. But does it come standard with the (Pirelli Scorpions?) Can one maybe spec it that way from the dealer?
