Matroosberg 4x4 Trail
Has anybody been up to the top of Matrroosberg 4x4 trail in a Syncro?
I heard it isn't even worth trying.
But will be anyway soon.

The owner of Matroosberg used to own and use a Syncro there for many years.

RE: Matroosberg 4x4 Trail
Why is it not worth trying. If a ladover or landooser can do it so can a standard syncro in most cases.

I have been told by a few different people that he used it on many occasions to recover other vehicle.
As far as I know he still has it.

And another two Syncros near the top of Matroosberg. Looks like fun!

Here is the Matroosberg Syncro.

Well I'll be there soon for a couple of days and take some pics of how far I can get. They tell me a Syncro has never made it, although many have tried.Mmmm... challenge accepted.

RE: Matroosberg 4x4 Trail
HI

the owner of the farm, Cordre, has/had a syncro for many years ,syncro's have been to the top plenty times, white bus with the cross on the door is Cordre's bus

a customer was at de wildt last month, every one told him a syncro has never done "Koos se Klip", so he did it, we have done it 10 or 15 times, easy for a syncro if you drive the right line,

Lots of people just say a syncro has never done some thing as they believe it cant do it, syncro's are more capable than many people think,

I may be a mechanic, but i can't fix stupid
Bad planning on your part does not make your issue an crisis to me
Bad workmanship by other garages does not entiltle you to better rates at me
Syncro, syncro , syncro and more syncro, this is the syncro way of life

Thanks Stuart!

Well that's good news, can't wait. Although I am a bit precious over my Syncro, I don't mind loosing a tyre but that's about it.
Good to know.

Stuart said "They say in "Namibia" the only problem with a syncro is when it does get stuck nothing else can get there to tow it out"
