Re: Botswana / Zimbabwe safari fuel consumption

If I got 7 liters/km on the diesel (if...

Re: Over heating problems

Ian, I nearly came home alone, at some stage she was not looking good at all - a nice 38/40 degree wind blowing through your hair - wat can be nicer :biggrin: - but if she wants to travel with me she knows she must be able to take the punch :biggrin: Even when we hit the tar close to the Noordoewer ...

Re: Over heating problems

I just returned from a Kgalagadi/Namibia trip. Max temperatures ranged between 36 to 42 degrees C, it was really nice and hot :redface: Corrugation is the nemesis of many a thing and the Kgalagadi has a good measure of that :biggrin: On the latter part of the trip in the dunes towards Gharagab (road...

Re: BFG KM2 285/70R17 Discontinued ?

Dankie Tinus, Ek het huidiglik die Cooper STT's op maar hulle het my nie dieselfde behandel as die BF's nie - hulle het baie vinniger en ongelyk afgeloop en heelwat meer pap bande gekry (kan ook seker net "toeval" wees - toegegee). Sal maar seker daarmee moet saamleef ......

Re: 'n "klak, klak, klak" geluid in 4x4

Ek is maar aan die dom kant as dit by die tegniese kom - bedoel jy dat in 4x4 dit slegs as die hubs op auto is die klak geluide sal maak (gly) en nie as dit gelock is nie. Indien dit die geval is het ek seker 'n bietjie prematuur opgetree om die ander hubs te bestel want ek lock ook as 'n reël my hu...
