05/02/08 - Oxley's Shaw
Thames Valley 4x4's February event was at the club's home site of Oxley's Shaw. Following the recent rain the site was the wettest its ever been, with simple muddy tracks seeing every scrabbling for grip.
The Jimny, with its relatively light weight and fat tyres struggled for grip. Instead of cutting through the mud to the grip below it floated on the muddy surface and ground to a wheelspinning halt.
These conditions really needed tall thin tyres in order to be successful.
The pictures below show the diffs firmly grounded and the Jimny going no-where!
