FToy RSA - First Challenge

July 2011

Now that we have finished, its time to see what we can do.

We attended the Wildevy 4x4 challenge day and enjoyed ourselves. Some pictures of what transpired.


Good for racing in the mud!! Especially with the BFG Krawlers giving excellent traction. Won this one easily!!


Another muddy slope to charge up and co-driver to throw oranges into a bin.


At the top trying to get traction for a good throw!!


Making quick work of the hairpin. I think we won this one on a time trial.


BLIND DRIVING. Ronald with blacked out safety glasses and me giving directions on the obstacle course.


Backup team Johan and Pieter with refreshments (Rum, Brandy and Coke)


Having FUN!!!!! where all others got stuck! We breezed through on the BFG's not getting stuck at all.


Gallery of admirers in aw at what can be done if you do it properly.

Nicely done, guys!!

x2 on cleanup sucking. Isn't it wierd how it seems easy to get all that crap off the axles, so-so off the engine, but you clean for weeks and still find crap inside the cab?

And in the axles, behind the wheels, around the engine baked on, and in every nook and cranny imaginable...............I hate mud!!

That looks like a lot of fun.

Do you have any pictures of the other competitors?

They just want to know why you built that crazy rig with the steering on the wrong side

Built the left hand drive to make obstacles on set courses easier. Usually all vehicles around here are right hand drive, so the organizers set out the course so that a the driver of a RHD vehicle can not see banners or cones. LHD thus give me an advantage.
