This afternoon when we came back from shopping I normally have to do a wide 90 deg turn and another 90 deg in reverse to get up the drive. I did a half 180 deg doughnut instead and rather impressed myself. My next door neighbour who came with us didn't look that impressed She works for Hampshire Police though

If I turn all the gizmos off, mine still wont do it unless I go for some lunacy with about 30 mph, and then a full lock with hand brake on etc .. but by that time ive no idea where its going to go . so space is good

Mine's very easy to doughnut in 2wd, but the locked centre diff makes it understeer in 4wd instead. Handbrake helps

I never liked the Idea of using the handbrake whilst traveling in 4wd with a locked centre diff as you'd get wind up between the locked rear wheels and rotating front wheels, wouldn't you?

Public spirited ! what he was really hoping for was some low life scally's kicking the crap out of him then further humiliate him by taking his car after first using him for traction under the front wheels .I wonder how many hits that would have had on youtube .

Having escaped most of the snow so far, we got a decent dollop last night....which remains frozen on the roads now....

A snow covered beach this morning at Lifeboat drill and some amazing icicles on the cliffs from fozen run off.....did my 'good dead' for the day on the way back too....moved a crashed car and ferried the grandmother and three children back into town....hope Father Christmas is reading this
