Just coz it's more than 'normal' driving conditions.
I've only ever used LR for recovery when I've actually been using a gravel or sand beach as a slipway, mind you last time I tried it at Hayling Island both car axles and both trailer axles sunk into the gravel/sand mix and I had to use the rear and centre diff locks as well to get the rig out.
As an update to the clutch story the local garage did put a new DM Flywheel and clutch in for me, but connected up all the electronics to the box wrong so the ECU got confused and didn't want to play.
As a slight silver lining to this story, I did discover a new Independant Mitsubishi dealer in Portsmouth that has all the Mitsubishi diagnostic equipment.
They plugged the car in, jacked it up, and swapped the plugs around all in the space of 10 mins early on Christmas eve morning, and didn't even want to charge me for it as it was only 10 mins.
Needless to say they were £40 better off in cash before I left.
They are good guys that charge £45 per hour, appear to know what they are doing and don't just work on Mitsubishis, but as both are fully trained up Main dealer Mitsubishi mechanics they know Shoguns, Pajeros, Evos very well.
is their website.
