Re: Quadra track 2 no problem did it easy

Nice pics, and I'm sure it's even steeper than it looks. Photos never do an incline justice.

Re: Quadra track 2 no problem did it easy

Most of it i left it in auto to try in low range with hill decent active in 3rd and 4th, otherwise its too bloody slow. I did find going up that shelf that in auto both rear wheels scrabble for grip and i sat there. Put it into rock and 1 wheel spun the other started to grip as power was transferred almost instantly. Its interesting to experience as naturally you want to back off once spin starts, but keeping an even foot lets the tc work wonders it really is very good, particularly with hill decent. The hills were much steeper than appears but it was easy, id love to really test it. I must admit with the greatest of intentions, even without the lsd its much more capable at this point than i am willing to go into with a car of this expense, ironic I know. Just saying even the base model is enough. Especially here in oz where u can really get yourself in the shit without trying very hard given the land.

Re: Quadra track 2 no problem did it easy

Love the photos. Track are always twice as steep as they look on pics. If anyone knows how to take pics that truly show how steep a track is, please let me know.

Get a side angle and rotate the camera to exaggerate it just slightly or use the 'straightening' feature of photo editing software
