Overdrive!
Hi all.

Gosh its all so quiet. I have been busy getting my new career underway but at home this weekend which is cool.

Anyway pics from the last two trip to Glentarkie will be uploaded by Ali tonight.
The first trip was a fare few of us Sandy, Jarrad Katie Nathan, Guys from Mann Automotive, Marc Mags Hannah, Huey and others.
Second trip was Me Sandy and Huey.

Both trips were fantastic what a place it is very large and I kept getting lost.

The last trip was my Dakars first outing . There had been a lot of rain the previous couple of days and the place was muddy and flooded. We had some great fun which will be shown by the pics. Dakar performed pretty well and got very muddy.
Hey its good to be back to offroading.

Regards

Rod :D :D :D :D

Nice one mate.

Cheers for that. And cheers to Jarrad for getting so many pics. Mind you he would have been awfull muddy if he had not exited the vehicle at just the correct time. :D

Dont know why but even just looking at the pics makes me grin all over again.

Right when is the next outing and who would be coming ? oh yeah and who is going to be my passenger. Great fun having little doors.
:D :D :D

Rod....... who is going to stop reply to his own message its sad.
 
Great pic's mate, I was reading a snippet in one of the mag's where a someone decided to drive from land's end to john o'groats in there Dakar, they said that after the fuel bill reached £500 they just relaxed and enjoyed the drive lol.
There's was very shiny but i think your's look's better covered in the mucky stuff:D
 
Thankyou for that. I bought her with the intention of offroading so was not to worried about the body work as long as it was in one piece. Mine is pretty dull as its old but it would probably polish up well. No point really as hopefully she will be covered in mud most of her life. as for the lands end trip I think I noticed it on a dakar site. That would have been a nice run and there motor was tidy. They are definatly headturners.

Cheers for now.

Rod
 
Talk about me being jealous!!!!!

If you want a passenger i'll volunteer as I want be going anywhere in my Landy for a very long time :(

Can i put my name down for the next outing guys? Have the 6x6 rangie radiator watertight now. Looking for some hills to try it out on! Hmm, that's if it doesn't go through the floor of the lorry. Had it on the 3 tonne car ramp and it just groaned in disgust.:eek:

Bloomin eck - that looks the dogs dangly's right enough :D . That is indeed something different - are all 6 wheels driven - and if so how does it do it ?

Just in case you guys hadny seen the bit in events around the world - there is a doo on at Lochgilphead next weekend - it is highly recomended . All day Saturday , maybe a night drive and all day Sunday . Wee trek for the dakar but you'd maybe get it on the back of that 6x6 pick up ?;) .
 
Nice one.
I would love to see a 6 wheel drive in action. And yeah bit far for my little buggy but would go in the back of the range rover nicely.

Have a good day anyway Gordon I wont be able to make it. Maybe in the summer sometime my parents are close to that neck of the woods and could maybe arrange a trip down there and some off roading to. Keep us informed of the events anyway mate.

Excellent pics Rod. The Dakar looks a bit of a beast! And Glentarkie looks very muddy in the pics.

My first off road experience was at Glentarkie, and I love the place. Unfortunately missed the SORC day there in November, but will hopefully make it there this year. My avatar pic is of the 90 and the 110 swimming in the pond in 2005. Was all great fun until the my sister-in-law took the 110 a wee bit too deep, soaking Mrs Ye110w, who was in the passenger seat, as the water came in through the air vents....

Cheers,
Ross.

Ps would like to see the 6x6 Rangie! Oh yes....

Sandy. Have only had the 6x6 since september but it's had a long life! It left the factory in 73 as a left hand drive bound for France.:eek: First registered in this country in 79. Had 13 previous owners on log book, last being in Dundee in 99. Then possibly went to a forester, then a farmer up Balmoral direction where it was rescued by me from the middle of a grass field.:D

Rage rover. Yes all wheels are driving! Big 6cyl perkins/mazda lump up the front with third axle driven from the pto to a bearing on axle 2. Axle 3 has been cut and the diff moved to the left side.

Wheelbase is about 147 inches so don't think i'll be doing many RTVs with her.

Since there ain't that many of them in existence, and yours has the Mazda / Perkins lump, and it has the upright exhaust, I am sure that must have been the one I saw, all those years ago. IIRC it made a nice noise rumbling up some of the big climbs there :D .

Your probably right when you say it won't be very competitive in an RTV :eek: , and one of the comments I heard when I first saw it was that it could do with softer springs at the back, or else stick 500kgs of steel plate in to give those springs a little bit of give.

Have fun.
