    The Big Nissan seemed to be the smoothest of all. Surprised by Haval. Thank you for the video.

    I've said it before, this is your alternative career. It's not just a record video, but you have captured the spirit of the event. Some crucial chitchat and funny comments and cheering, where deserving .

    The video quality of the GoPro 8 is also exceptional. Was it shot in 1080 or 4k?

    Thanks Johnie.
    You're too much kind! Such nice guys on this forum. Clearly a bit confused, but still nice guys

    I’m not actually too sure, will have to check, but I think it’s shot in it’s lowest setting (1080) to save space...

    So can we lock in a date for the next TC vs DF event? Another soft roader friendly venue like De Wildt?

    No harm meant. Tracks that is Soft roader friendly is not the ultimate test site for traction aids.
    If it is fun outings it's fine.

    Grade 4 to 5 trails and tracks will give the best results for a test like this.
    Unfortunately chances for vehicle damage is great. Think the orginisers of this event kept that in mind. Running a duplicate test in the same conditions won't proof much.

    The next test area will probably be the N/C Klein Pella trip in 3 weeks, albeit at a smaller scale and no softroaders. There will be tough trails in the rocky mountains as well as dune challenges, the backyard of Bex who will escort us to his playpen.

    So looking forward to this one.
