I do know one thing though - I took that Discovery along Gap Road in the Brecon Beacons no problem at all - NONE of my mates with their Jap stuff would risk it - I didn't ding the underside even once!!! My mate tried to drive his Toyota Amazon along the Roman Road and grounded it before he had gone 10 feet - there is a nasty drop off the main road onto it!!!
blimey, have we found something you cant do or don't know how to do, like view a simple stream, hehe ;-)

come on everybody, send codders some streaming vids of interesting stuff we can chat about but he cant seee........

no cant change my view, if someone said they would swap me landy for there equally well appointed amazon i would bite their arm off...

come to think of it i have owned quite a few toyotas and not one of them has ever had a problem or fault, hmmmmm

Maybe not too far from the truth
But we did get around a lot faster than the Landys!

IMHO that says more about the driver than the vehicle

OK remember that I've got no axe to grind here, but here's what I saw in the video:

Shogun/Pajero goes down track, driver seems to know what he's doing, and all goes OK.

Landrover swb goes down after the Mitsi, and gets stuck.... BUT... if you look at the wheels, in the early shots you can see that the Landy's offside wheel is spinning whilst the inside one isn't, and in the later shots, the front wheel is spinning whilst the rear is stationary. Looks like it's in 2-wd drive with no diff lock? Now I'm not a 4x4 expert, but weren't old LR 90's manual 4-wd selection with manual axle lock?

Nasty "kerpling!" at the end though!

Richard, I reckon your spot on. My thoughts were that that series 3 was in 2wd only.

I was just surprised that the front wheel was spinning - I assumed that the default was rear-wheel drive?
