Rust de Winter Jamboree
Hi All

last week end Lindy and I entered the Toyota Rust de Winter jamboree. It was great fun with us finishing 36 out of 131 entries.

Saturday was and obstacle course with 10x obstacles, nothing the syncro could not do, but the syncro does have short comings, namely the main issue , Low gear is still too fast, the jeep wranglers can do an obstacle at half the speed the syncro does, so when doing a carry the bowl of water type obstacle the syncro is just too fast making it hard for the navigator to keep water in the bowl.

sunday was a rally trail in the mountains with point only going to questions not 4x4 driving, there were some really rough sections but all very easy for the syncro. there was some serious mud that a few guys got stuck in including the other syncro but he did not have the correct tyres for mud and his VC was weak, the VC died by the end of the trail. i towed him out the mud as well as a hilux. a few criusers also got stuck in the mud, too heavy it think,

all in it was a great week end and well worth entering.

Stuart

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
