Gaan een "moose" probleem he as ek moet uitswaai :oldtimer:
Ek dink die punt van die oefening is om juis te leer waar jou model (met sy mods) se 'tipping point' is.
Dit is vir driver skill en 'knowing your car'.
Ek verwag VERSEKER nie om die beste hier te vaar nie, maar om my kar beter te leer ken.
Skilpad, Shortie & Witblits (in no particular order)

Some of the earlier models also failed.
See below. Other bakkies seemed to have done okay

Now, my question:

Will your rig pass it?
I.e. with roofrack, OME 2" etc.
Right now, I suspect I won't.

Going straight through is not an option either, (in our case, through thnot a Moose, but a Kudu or a Friday night inebriated pedestrian.
The Moose (or Kudu) will kill you, and the pedestrian will land you in hot water.

Deja vu... :biggrin:
