Re: 4x4community-Brakkedune
As Herms said, tyre pressures are important. Even a change of 0.1 bar made a noticeable difference. We started at 1 bar but quickly dropped to 0.8 when we saw the first obstacle. Later we dropped to 0.7 and finally for the last obstacle to 0.6 bar. On the last obstacle 4 vehicles lost tyres so I was nervous about going any lower but with our lack of power and speed we possible could have tried 0.5 bar. Some of the powerful vehicles would experience an increase in tyre pressure of 0.5 bar after an obstacle due to the amount of wheelspin they were generating! I'm running Firestone Destination A/T's which are not at all aggresive. Not really the best for sand but we managed ok. The Syncro was great on the level unchurned up sand. Felt like we were on tar.

Well done Ian. What kind of lift kit did you fit?

Life's a journey, not a race. Enjoy it.

Re: 4x4community-Brakkedune
My bus is lifted quite a bit. About 510mm wheel centre to wheelarch all round. It's another thing I've done in conjunction with Hi Tech Automotive. I'm very happy with it. Uses standard springs so ride comfort is unchanged and the shocks are longer so no issues with topping out that can happen with standard shocks with longer springs.
