Re: River Trip 6-10 August 2015 AKA Die Groot Trek

Ek probeer vir ons n paar van hierdie TomTom Bandit action cams reel vir die trip. Hy is nog nie ge release nie so kan dalk n probleem wees, maar glo ek sal reg kom. :thumbup:

Hi Michael ,enige nuus oor die moontlikheid van die aksie kamera's :think:
Errol, dit lyk nie of ons in tyd die Bandit gaan he nie. Daar is nog baie issues om uit te sorteer met die import van die produk.
Daar is n ander device wat ons verseker gaan saam bring, sy naam is die TomTom Bridge. Sal julle bietjie n link stuur

Re: Two way Radios

Hallo Errol

My experience:

I used a set of UHF radios (Zarteck / cost about 1400R) in the past they worked ok over a shorter distance (~ 1km). However If one goes on a group trip the VHF radios appears to be the more commonly used.

The main requirement for the purchase of a VHF radio is that you need to be part of an Offroad-Club i.e. NORC or any other club for that matter

Christo Van Rensburg / our Radio Officer NORC assisted me greatly with the following info


• We use VHF radios in our club (as do all the other 4x4 clubs). Don’t get an HF radio – you will have nobody to talk to! OR%A has 9 channels, so try to get one with at least 8 channels, and if possible go for 16 channels so that your radio can cope with all the ORRA frequencies.
• Browse to where you will find a list of places to get a radio. Pick someone close by & tell them that you want a handheld VHF radio. You may be lucky and they will give you the serial number over the phone to let you complete the ORRA application form. If you are not lucky they will ask you to pay them some money first.
• Browse to the to see the application process. You will also find the application form there. Download it, complete the form in Acrobat, print & sign it, then scan & e-mail (or fax) it to Rina at ORRA. Remember to attach my confirmation letter to the application you send to ORRA!
• Once you receive the license from ORRA (it goes to a postal address), you can legally collect the radio from the dealer. The dealer will have programmed the ORRA frequencies into the radio while you were waiting for the license.


The application process for the radio took about 1 week. / cost = 150 Rand

I was now entitled to officially purchase a VHF radio.
I bought two RTS Bosvark Radios. + an Arial extension + earphone etc. Total cost ~ 2400 Rand.
I had the opportunity to test the radio last week in Lesotho and the radio (with Arial extension) worked very well.
I guess the convoy was at times stretched out up to 5 km in mountaines terrain. And I always had good reception.

Re: 15" rims
Being launched in SA this month.
Limited size options available as they will be fully imported.
Full size range will be available next year when full local production commences.
I've already planted the seed with the big wigs to bring in 285/75 R16 , 285/70 R17 , 33x10.5 R15 and 33x12.5 R15 saying that there is a lot of interest from the Patrol forum :thumbup:
Let's see what happens.
The import models will have Red lettering and the locally produced tires will have White lettering.

Re: Safety features (airbags etc) since which model?

I think weight advantage should be the deciding aspect.
A 3 star rated 3 ton vehicle will aleays come out tops when colliding with a 5 star rated 1 or 2 ton vehicle.... :mytwocents:

Light city cars' high ANCAP ratings do not protect in real world crashes

Mark Hinchliffe, National Features
August 8, 2012 4:00pm

LIGHT city cars with high official safety ratings are under-achievers in real-world crashes, according to the latest survey.
While most new light cars score four or a maximum five stars in the Australian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP), they are disadvantaged by their weight when crashing into bigger and heavier vehicles, RACQ safety spokesman Steve Spalding said yesterday.

He was commenting on the 20th annual Used Car Safety Ratings of 313 cars in 5.8 million crashes in Australia and New Zealand. It is compiled by Monash University's Accident Research Centre with support from state auto clubs and transport departments.

"Drivers can be about 10 times more likely to die or be seriously injured in a crash driving a used car with a poor safety record compared with a top performer,'' Mr Spalding said.

The survey found the safest vehicle for occupants and other road users was the BMW X5 SUV (2001-2008), while the most dangerous was the early 1980s Daihatsu HiJet which was 11.5 times worse than the X5.

NRMA vehicle safety expert Jack Haley said 29 vehicles scored their Safe Pick rating of which 19 were small, medium or large cars, most manufactured since 2001, demonstrating the advances in affordable safe vehicles. There were only 19 safe picks last year and none in the first survey.

However, Mr Spalding pointed out that light cars were the worst performers in the survey, despite many having good ANCAP scores.

"Often light cars' scores don't correlate with how they perform in ANCAP,'' he said.

"The Hyundai Getz is a good example. It's a four-star ANCAP performer, but gets one star in the real world. Also, the Yaris gets five stars, but we only give it three.

"The problem is the ANCAP crash test doesn't take into account weight. The heavier car will always come off better in a crash.

"In the real world, crashes happen at different angles with different circumstances. ANCAP only does offset front and side impact tests.''

The research rated cars not only on the protection they provide the driver but also the level of risk they present to other road users in a collision. Those that scored highly on both counts were labelled Safe Picks.

Mr Spalding suggested buyers should not just look at ANCAP, but also the Used Car Safety Ratings.

"While the top Safe Pick is a prestige vehicle, motorists can be assured there are Safe Picks in almost every class of vehicle covering a broad price range,'' he said.

"Alarmingly, the research shows that while novice drivers have the highest crash risk they often drive the least safe vehicles.

"By choosing safer vehicles, novice drivers could reduce their road trauma statistics by 60 to 80 per cent.''

NSW Centre for Road Safety general manager Margaret Prendergast said newer models provide drivers with better protection from injury in a crash than older ones.

"Motorists will see from the list that some of the most affordable used cars are the safest,'' she said.

Mercedes-Benz and Volvo barely rated in the top choices, despite being acknowledged as global vehicle safety leaders.

The spokesmen for the companies attribute that to the fact the active and passive safety systems in these vehicles means they don't crash as often.

Even BMW, whose 2001-08 X5 large SUV earned a mention as the safest vehicle overall, is bemused by the fact the newer - and safer - model introduced in 2009 didn't earn a mention.

BMW spokesman Piers Scott said the result vindicated BMW's safety-led research and development but questioned the applicability of the MUARC findings in terms of determining the best car to buy based on safety.

"The absence from the list of the newer model X5, which by all accounts is considerably safer, raises questions over how crash-worthiness has been assessed in this study".

Victorian Automotive Chamber of Commerce executive director David Purchase also noted the report didn't take into account the roadworthiness of the vehicles involved in the crashes.

"Even modern vehicles with five-star (ANCAP) safety ratings, including ABS and ESC, need ongoing maintenance and regular servicing to operate at their best," he said.

"Something as simple as a worn tyre makes a vehicle unsafe whatever its age."

Re: 17-21 Maart 2017 DUINE TRIP

Hi Errol

Hierdie is wat ek op die kaart kry vir die Boegoeberg eco resort.( Kamplek).

Dit is heelwat nader aan Groblershoop as aan Griekwastad, maar Groblershoop is ander kant (Wes van) die kamplek. So jy sal heelwaarskynlik laaste keer wil ingooi op Griekwastad - tensy jy bereid is om bietjie ompad te ry.
