quick wheel @ seahampton 2day

Postby OGJON » Tue Feb 23, 2010 5:09 pm

went for a wheel out @ seahampton 2day was on my own so nothing too extreme
found this lil hill thought it would be too hard for my unlocked Terracan but had a crack @ it anyway & to my surprise made it up did the left hand side no probs so came back around & tried the far right & with just a small amount of rock stacking also made it up & as always pix don't tell how steep it is or how big the rock steps really are(some of you might think this hill is easy, but for me this is the hardest hill I've driven so far & I didn't think my IFS rig would get up it but since I made it up I've fallen in love with my rig even more & can't believe the capabilities of it even with just a LSD rear & open ifs, I guess my Terracan is more capable off road than I am LOL):

yeah was driving around saw the hill got out had a bit of a walk up part of it & thought what a ripper of a hill, I'm on my own but what the heck I give it a crack, about 3/4 of the way up on the right hand side I had to do some stacking & believe me when my front end popped up into the air over the step & moved to the left out came "oh $h!t :shock:, don't roll, don't roll" but the trusty old LSD kept me moving forward & up the hill with the drivers wheel hanging in the air for a few secs before coming back down as the rear climbed up the step.

I wanna go back to this area some time with some of you guys on here & have a crack @ some of the other hills that are similar to this one
I think I've got a bit more confidence with my rig now, but I'm not sure about my driving @ least if I'm with others it'll be better knowing I've got someone there to help out if I get stuck.
