At Loveday, Tony (the owner) builds tracks to test your car. This one is the hardest so far. I wouldn't even attempt anything after the first corner in a Subaru.
It would be un-passable without lockers. And the extra low range made it pretty easy really...

He bent his bullbar in two places. Lost part of the bumper (corner piece). Dented his Range Rover fuel tank. Bent the rear right fender and probably more. But it was fun.


Roger and I don't go 4wding to get places, we go 4wding to have fun. So avoiding everything possible seems pointless to us.

i was being retarded with my comment and understand having fun, every thing after the first two words was me just having pointless fun within my own head.

i understand what loveday is and why people go there.

See in my mind four wheel driving is about exactly that. I enjoy the long drives to get places but its all about see what you can make your car do. Money Permitted a 4wd should stay in the shed and be played with untill the weekend. Have a cheap and eco friendly car for getting around in. If you want camping but not serious off roading then something like a X-trail is the way to go.

If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

Dom had some fun, he got to be the passenger both times I went through the track hehe, I had lots of fun too, but should have remembered to disconnect the anti-sway bar first so it didn't brake the bracket, but its all fixed now.  I can't wait to see where Tony has placed the markers you have to drive around on the Rock Garden track, he said he would make sure ya had to drive through the holes he doug... YIKES...
