Truck Offroading (Real Trucks not just 4x4 Utes)
« on: June 07, 2007, 01:22:35 PM »
Check out these guys.

Truck offroading 1
Truck offroading 2

I reckon that an 8X8 suby could be an intersting project.
Some of the angles these guys get with a truck that probably weighs 8 tonne are amazing

Just think how far a 1200kg suby would go if it had a big motor and 8 wheel drive.

Hey luke, did you copy these off another site? The link is missing the middle part. It has the ... where there should be heaps of text.
Is it those Russian's the video is about?

i found those videos, pretty nuts stuff but those trucks just get snagged on tight stuff, but they can make their way over some huge rocks thar arent easily crossed in a 4wd without a winch and some munga tyres

Sorry luke, never checked them again.. I'm too lazy.

I also figured out why I never notice the link opening over the forum window.. I use middle mouse button to open all links in firefox these days which opens in new window anyhow... I'll check out what I ca do about that later..
