    Default May 2021 Traction Challenge V.2 Brekkie Run with a Twist.

    EVENT

    What – May 2021 Traction Challenge V.2 Brekkie Run with a Twist.

    Why - Subsequent to the old discussion regarding the use and capabilities of Traction control VS the use of difflock, we decided to put the various theories and thoughts into practicality. Refer to the thread on the forum: Difflock vs Traction Control. Link below.
    As well as the March traction and difflock brekkie Run

    https://www.4x4community.co.za/forum...action-control

    https://www.4x4community.co.za/forum...ol-brekkie-Run


    Now the following questions arise.
    Why another Brekkie run to test Traction and the theories again?
    Well it is simple.

    1. Did we make new friends and was it grand meeting some of the forumites?
    2. Did we have fun?
    3. Did we have splendid day out?
    4. Did we have a lekker braai afterwards?
    5. Was it awesome DAY GTG?
    6. Were our soft roader members able to participate and have fun without damaging there vehicles?
    7. Did some of us actually experiment and experience what we wanted to test whether we drove a soft roader or hard roader.
    8. Was there lots of knoweledge sharing?

    The answer is and was..simply YES!!!!

    And lastly, there were many members that wanted to join but could unfortunately not due to prior commitments.

    When - Sunday 16th May 2021

    Where – De Wildt 4x4 off road trail near Britz

    Who- All welcome, soft roaders, hard roaders and spectators.

    Time - Meet at the entrance, greet and deflate if necessary @ 09h00 Sharp

    Fees – R300 Per vehicle. Payable on entry. ( Mention that you are part of the 4x4 Community event, otherwise you will pay R350.00)
    We have booked the LAPA for our event.

    The plan following on the Difflock VS Traction control thread and well as the March brekkie Run is to bring your vehicle standard or modified and demonstrate it’s capabilities using the newest or oldest technology as far as Traction control use or use of difflock, CD, LSD, FDL, AWD ETC… in various circumstances. The idea is to get as many various makes of vehicles as possible to be put through the paces and share the outcomes.
    However, Hedgehog has a few nice surprises in store for us and no, it will not damage your vehicle.
    For those who want to, you can go drive the trail as well and as usual and after the comparison, we will debrief at the LAPA, share results and yessssss, Braaaaaaaaaaaaiiii. So bring meat, wood and drinks.

    Update as per Hedgehog-
    Challenges planned:


    • X -axle - full traction aid mode (up)
    • X -axle - full traction aid mode (down)
    • Control Test (Will be explained, but involves x-axels and turning while coming up a small ramp as slow as possible)
    • Side-slope and tractive ability (This involves a side-slope and a surprise)
    • A Rock climb and downhill (To test your uphill and downhill traction and control on steep slippery conditions)
    • Pit traction and control (My secret for now)
    • A slow dice - Just for fun




    Note:

    None of the challenges are compulsory
    At each challenge we will move to the obstacle and the challenge and requirements will be fully explained (and demonstrated when possible)
    The challenges will be done where there will be spectating space.
    The evaluation criteria will be posted beforehand (A week before)
    There will be additional (more technical) challenges for the more adventurous (Depending on the time taken at the main challenges)

    NB# As with the last event, It will not be a brand bashing competition.
    (NOR A DAY TO PROVE WHO IS BETTER THAN WHO OR WHO'S VEHICLE IS BETTER)
    We will not be doing anything vehicle damaging unless your drive train decides to switch off in the middle of the Mud pool
    Yes, stock soft roaders are welcome including Havals, Amaroks, Subarus and your trusty Range Rover or Q7
    No, your vehicle does not have to be modified as some of our Volvo guys will tell you.

    4x4 Community Rules and T’s and C’s will apply.

    COVID 19 PROTOCOLS WILL APPLY


    A. Social distancing
    B. Masks will be worn
    c. Hand sanitizer to be used.


    RSVP on the thread and we will add you.
    Looking forward to seeing you!

    Thanks, Andrew, but I'm a 50/50.

    It's my son's birthday that day and we have a few "family issues" (not with him!) at the moment. But if I CAN make it I will, although quite possibly with street tyres...
