Well at last I have seen the video - what a PATHETIC attempt at discrediting LR - that is about the tamest bit of offroad I have ever seen!!!

For a start it is an 88 NOT a 90 - the 88 was stopped in 1983. The vehicle probably has a fault - default 2wd IS on the back wheels - 90s have constant 4 wheel drive!!! I think it must 4 in 4 wheel drive but with a removed rear prop which would give it front wheel drive only!!! Either that or broken rear halfshaft - same effect!!! The vehicle IS over 20 years old - the Paj was a lot newer than that!!!

Also remember there is more to offroad than pure traction - a Freelander would do well on a slippery surface like that!!!

If you REALLY want to see what a LR is capable of watch a camel trophy video - puts that pathetic shite to shame!!!

This sort of thing shows me just how pathetic the LR bashers REALLY are!!! How the hell can anyone think a Pajero like that with sidesteps for God's sake - could be as good as something like a Defender offroad???

I will challange ANYONE with a Pajero to come offroading with me!!!

Not trying to slant jap machinery as i have only ever had jap bikes and had around 32 of em.

Talking of bikes had great fun a while ago chasing a few - there is one area of mountain which they were using as a race track - a big oval of pure mud - grass completely gone - mud was REALLY deep - had great fun doing a few laps sideways!!! Anyway they banned them off the common to give it a chance to recover - went up there one day and loads of bikers - they must have thought I was Police in my white LR so they all shot off - had great fun chasing AND catching them across the mountains - they just couldn't get away - LR a lot better in deep mud and water than a bike - with the right tyres of course!!!

Thanks for that but if you ever get the chance try to watch a camel trophy video - they show what a LR can REALLY do - they are pretty much standard vehicles but fitted with roll cages etc - after watching one of those videos everyone I know hasn't failed to be impressed!!!

Have a look at this - do you remember it??? Bet they were pretty pleased to have been in a LR!!!

"2 part-time coastguards answered an emergency one night in 1992 at Berwick-on-Tweed. Luckily it was a false alarm. When the driver backed up he didn't see the edge of a cliff and drove over it. After a free fall of 80 ft (26 meters or a 9-stories building) the Landrover landed on the roof on a heap of rocks. The two coastguards were able to walk away with just a few minor scratches. Despite the structural strenght of the Land Rover there was a great deal of luck involved. Both were rescued by a Helicopter who noticed the lights pointing skywards."
