    Default Question for Teroid and others if they want to answer

    Teroid what sort of vehicle do you go off road with? i have seen alot of 4wd in books over here that are from america and they are beefed up to the max to our standards over here.( we would like to throw massive lift kits, wheels etc but law don't allow it) did you get right in to trials or just cruise and enjoy the open spaces. i used tohill climb ,mud run, alot of sand driving and enjoyed peace and quite surrounded by wilderness.

    yeah my name is what i use on all my sites, picked it cause shane is to common and you have to have a number or other characters in the title,i am now doing up a old holden ute. two of the diahatsu's i have had were utes.

    What we call a ute over here, you probably would call a pick-up? (has a cab chassis with a style side or a tray on the rear.)

    i would be interested in the output of 4.2 straight line 6 as we have a small v8 version of the 4.2 and are quite torquey.

    all the tracks i use (which now are 60% housing developments) were within 70kms of my home some were really good could be challenging, that area you go to looks like a real nice spot.

    there are some real good areas near where i live, unfortunatley, many are being closed down, either from great abuse from idiots or just closed due to the great amount of over zealot greenies, i respect the forest and leave it the way i found it, but both extremes ruin the fun for everybody,
    vent vent vent

    anyway on the 24th im gonna drug up on painkillers and bite the bullet and go 4 wheelin, i get to graduate with a assc.science degree and im gonna head for the hills, i be sure and take some good pics for ya.

    ive seen may tv show on the great parks in the north of austrailia, have you been 4whellin up there, it seems as tho there are many different types of landscapes available to a great ute wrecker such as your self to play around with?????? :lol:

    a top end trip i have been planning since i was 17, it was to do the whole top end journey but it has never ever happened, but i have told my wife when our kids get older that i will be doing it but she said she don't want to, So probably i will do all on my own or a group of mates will be planned in to it. you are definatly right about how good it is so much untouch beautiful country.
