A bit out of sequence with respect to the build but you have to get out there and have a play every now and then. So on the weekend of the 23rd November a few friends (or mates for the Aussie folk) decided to meet up a Land Cruiser Mountain Park - a spectacular 4WD park in South East Queensland Australia. After slinging a bit of bs while sitting by the fire during the first night we decided it was time to dust off the old cob webs and have a play in the cruisers.
My mate Paul in his very nicely set up 1995 FJZ80R with a manual transmission, 33" tires, 4" lift and ARB lockers at both ends had a try at a particularly hairy climb and this was the result:
So not to be outdone, I had to see what the HDJ100R would do with very similar set up and this is what happened:
It put a smile on both our faces. We continued down several tracks for the morning on our way to watch the competition. This 4WD park has 250 Km's of tracks. Plenty of variety and lots of opportunity to get in trouble. Plenty of easy stuff as well. Very well suited for a mixed group.
Another few friends accompanied us for the day. Too many photos for here but one nice shot of the 1984 BJ42 having a play.
We finally made it to the main event to watch the last round of the Mickey Thompson "Triple S" winch series for the season. The aussies sure love their 4WD's, build them tough and push them hard. This series is mostly winching but there are a few high speed sections as well as a GPS stage. Total 10 stages for the weekend, total highest score for the weekend takes the prize. A sample of the vehicles in action:
Hope you enjoy.
