    thumb-up LR3 off road

    Les,
    I just lost all I just typed-let me do this again........shorter this time!!

    Ok,
    4 weeks ago, Hohenfels(upper Bavaria), Wheels event, 2006, TD6/manual tranny, LR3, all the good kit hanging on it, the guy had driven up to England to pick up a set of the new 19" Goodyear MTR's 2 weeks earlier(I think coming to US in spring). Truck was unstoppable. Most of us have Disco 1's and 2's, Def 90's or 110's or Gwagens, etc with mimimum 2" lifts, lockers or tru tracs, MT tires all the goodies. This guy smoked most of us-that truck was unbelievable(he's been a real serious offroader in the most tricked out MB Gelandewagen you could imagine for years though). Some dragging of the low stuff, but he's a guy with lots of money and bought this thing to use; he didnt back down from anything and completed all runs on first try all day. He would step out and look like he was ready to go to Casino Royal-effortless. So the technology is amazing. But he was first to say, if it all takes a dump in the field he's hosed. Will see if my buddy got pics(my digi camera took a dump that day of course).
    Cheers from Bavaria

    Thanks! Well, it was me that posted the photo... From what I hear, Amadeus Matzker loves Land Rover Defenders and has a pretty mean Porsche 911 track car. If you wouldn't mind snapping off a few shots that would be great! [see if he has any mod'ed 2006 MINI Cooper S's hanging around as well - my daily driver ]

    We call the game on how the ball is played, ie football means we use our feet not, as in USA, our hands!

    Default Got a few...

    Had a few turns up in nortern Ontario.. these are from a Wheels event my dealership put on... I've also got some really good pics from the LR drivign school in Montebello Quebec. I'll post them later.

    REALLY steep incline - maybe not so impressive, until I tell you that this was a 45 degree incline up a solid piece of rock -no steps or grip anywhere to be seen.. and all on road tyres!



    Doing the suspension hanging game... I am ashamed to admit it, but if you notice, I am in the passenger side - my wife may just be <gulp> a better offroad driver than I.





    I'll throw in a few more from that day, even though they are not LR3's, but they are cool pics anyways...

    Julia in the Bentley GT...




    Me in the Aston Martin DB9.




    Another of me in the Aston....
