Eastnor - Adventure Trail - 24/5/14

Post by anglefire » Sat May 24, 2014 8:21 pm

Cassie and I managed to get a few pictures of the day - though there wasn't a lot of time to stop and take them - so a lot are through the rear window. Though the tricked up Defenders did do a couple of extra bits - and I got a few of those.



I have pulled the Blackvue SD card out and have put some footage on Utube - it should be ready in a bit - I'm just doing a second one now of us going through a little water :shock:

Tyres were very good - much better than Garry's STT' (Though pretty much worn out for off road use), John had Duratracs on I think - and he seemed to struggle a lot more than I did too.

Most of the time I just gave it a little gas and it just went.

Though around the tree - that was so slippy you'd need spikes to stop the cars sliding - it was lethal - did get out and walk - and it was very hard to just stand up!

And whilst they are not quiet, they are a lot better than the STT's on the road - a hum rather than a roar - especially at 60 on the STT's

2nd Video is now up. (Might take a minute or two to show.)

Fairly early in the day, and a route we could have driven around - but this wasn't too bad - the end was quite a step climb, but I think all D3's got out without any drama's.

That looked excellent, lots of gloop!

You could see yours slide a little, but the guy in front looked really slidey.

That was John (Captain Slow!) - he was on Duratracs :whistle:

Mine did move around a bit - quite a bit at times, but seemed to have more grip than anyone else. Very pleased with the KM2's :thumbright:

Excellent day :thumbright: , you should all give yourselves a pat on the back for keeping up, some very good driving today .
It just poured down with rain all day, which made for a very slippery track and waterlogged , hope you all enjoyed it :thumbright:

Still going through my pictures (Well mostly Cassie's pictures!)

Found this interesting set - black blob is the rear window hump!

Another one of Mike (Yogi) after coming down the steps. He might think it was driver error (In part, possibly), but tyres didn't help.

And a big up to the LRE guys who didn't seem to mind getting stuck in and lending a hand :thumbright:
