:thumbup: The first one, with the wheel in the air.

I still need to figure out where my torque has gone.
I distinctly remember 2 years ago, I had much more power to give.
This time my foot was flat on the floor while the revs still continued to go down. Hy was besig om dood te trek.
That was scary, because at that moment Alex told me, "Nou moet jy aangaan", I cannot go back down again. I was too far up.

Alex, I have noticed a couple of times on this outing and ons some others that your Patrol stalls quite easy at low rpm, maybe its worh taking it for a dyno tune again?
I agree that there should be way more torque low end......specially from a v8

Two winches in front, from two cars pulled me up (Errol and Christo). Nice and slowly. In hindsight I do not think the recovery could have gone better, or more smoothly.

Hopefully there will be some video and photos posted later on.


Thanks for sharing. Hopefully we can get some video of this. I'd love to have seen how this was done...

What was interesting for me between my run and Alex's was that he was definitely struggling for power, whereas I was struggling with traction.
Also there was a big difference in the amount of wheel lift.
Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Het iemand dalk foto's geneem en/of videos van my herwinning by Klipdrif?
Ek het self nie gesien wat gebeur nie.

The guys with the manual gearboxes need to check their gearbox oil, mine swallowed some water. And probably check diffs as well, incase there is a breather problem.
