Just how good are these vehicles?

I love this video (and a number of the others by the same people). This one shows some serious mud plugging in Oz with an RRS, D4, D2 and a little Suzuki.

It's fun to see the RRS and the D2 struggling at times when the D4 seems to be taking it all in its stride. Then you realise the RRS and D2 were towing the Suzuki through the worst of the mess!

An example of how good the RRS/Disco Terrain Response system is, see this vid of a D4 on road tyres in some pretty "fun" conditions.

I wish I could get a front bumper like that for the RRS! 2008 TDV8 - it's a labour of love

Makes you wonder why people buy them for the supermarket and school runs when they could have sooooooo much fun doing what they were designed to do. 2015MY Corris Grey SDv6 HSE Dynamic, preceeded by a 2.7SE RRS, a 3.6TDv8 RRS, several FFRR's and 2 Evoques.
Also in my garage is a 1996 TDi300 Defender 90 County HT made into a fake CSW.... my fun car to enjoy bashing and denting 20 years old and still giving loads of fun

Gibraltar 2007 Range Rover Sport TDV6 SE Stornoway Grey

Pop down to Solihull and try a Landrover Experience. I did a whole day for my 50th, the morning with a RRS the afternoon with a Discovery 4. I was amazed. Well worth the money for the day and a real eye opener. My favourite obstacle The 2 flights of Stairs!

I think tyre choice has a massive effect, I got my rrs fairly stuck on a mildly boggy green lane the other week, got it out, but had to use a bit more momentum than I would have liked and was worried I would have to find a farmer with a tractor.

This is the same run in the opposite direction but not sure which vehicle it is but I bet there were fresh trousers waiting at the end....


The joys of traction control..........
