Bluerag track

Another tick for our wk2, now to get back down!

Getting back down included climbing all the hills we had idled down, rock steps are much harder going up. The new rear springs have really helped the car on the very rocky sections with no more damage to the long range tank though there a few more war wounds on the bash plates! A couple of photos now attached or follow the link, I did try and post them at the time but they wouldn't load for some reason (operator error).

Re: Bluerag track

I googled it last night and found a couple of youtube videos of it.
After taking mine up Monument track on the weekend I'm keen to give that one a go some day too!!

Re: Bluerag track

Will post pictures when back in town, poor coverage up here. Great drive and some big drop offs

Cheers

Re: Bluerag track

Only a few photos, didnt take much as i was very focussed on driving, given the drop offs either side of the track and Tamara was busy hanging on! Well worth the drive and the jeep never missed a beat including on the very steep rock and shale sections. Low range rock, tyres at 28 psi and hill descent working its butt off most the time. If you get the chance drive this track, it is awesome (and high).







From oz explorer
On the way out via the Dargo High Plains Rd you can take a challenging but spectacular ridge top run out the Blue Rag Range to the Blue Rag Trig Point. An amazing track that crests a ridge with staggering drops to both sides in places of a thousand feet to the valleys below, this is possibly the best ridge top drive in the state. The trig point at 1718m ASL provides a 360 degree panorama of the country recently travelled and of Hotham, Feathertop and the Bogong complex. The bushfire damage to the snowgums here will be a stark reminder of their ferocity in 2003 for many years to come, as the regrowth will be a reminder of the tenacity of the snowgums as the 400-500 year old tubers under the soil sprout again at the base of the dead trees, repeating a cycle they may have already undertaken 7-8 times in their lifespan.

One of the best tracks you will find in the high country, the scenery is just magnificent.

Few more photos here.

Re: Bluerag track

doesn't look much of a place to do a U Turn, or change a flat.

Re: Bluerag track

Hi Scarps, we have 40 mm Crdstu springs in the front and 30 mm dobinsons in the back. Supports the loads well and gives the jeep a slight nose down attitude and has improved the clearance. The tyres add a further 13 mm height so overall we are about 43 cm higher than standard.
