    Agreed 100% Tony, for any new 4wd owners reading this you will learn so much by joining a local club with sensible knowledgable drivers to teach you and make some friends.

    I couldn't think of anything worse then a new 4wd owner just hitting the tracks without any basic knowledge.

    Extremely dangerous!

    That is one of the main reasons that I joined a 4WD Club, you learn so much, I just thought that you put it in 4WD and just hit all obstacles flat out........wow was I wrong
    Best thing that I ever did was to join the club I am now in, one of the greatest things is that my youngest son absolutely loves it, so we get to spend a lot of quality father and son time together.
    If anyone is thinking about joining a club........don't think just do it.
    If any members require assistance in anything regarding this forum, just let me know via a PM and I will help you in any way that I can.

    i never ended up doing my 4wdclub driver training something came up that weekend. i stil learnt how to drive on alot of trips with them also got a great navigator and have smashed a couple of skills and nav weekends.

    still remember how i learnt to drive down a sand dune. by calling over the uhf for help when i was like 1 meter from the top of the dune ready to come down.

    one thing people needed to rememeber is to speak up. if u need help just ask, i have went out with a few people from online before and u ask themif they have driven hardcore off road and they say yes u tell them to speak up if they need a guied or something for some sections. next thing u know they are in all sorts of trouble cause they have no idea. then they tell u they have never done anything this hard before.

    Driver inexperience or stuboorness, did I see right he had a spotter but wasn't listening?
    I found with tricky stuff people dont use spotters (or just ignore them) to be cool and that gets them into trouble a lot.

    Slow and steady takes it all the time....

    Was the second video the second time he did it (after he repaired the horn?

    I watched this a few times just to see if I'd missed anything...because on first impressions it didn't look that hard out. Am I missing something? Heading up might be greasy but going down would appear to be pretty simple. Maybe the spectators were just waiting to see someone crash,hence the lack of guiding.

    New fender and new front seats, there's no way to clean the stains out of that seat.

    Do it through a club as you are then covered in case of an accident, Not a good idea going bush with Joe Blow you may be passing on bad habits, IMO
    Everyone should do a driver awareness or recovery course as a minimum.
    If you want to you can then take advanced driving, recovery, first aid, Your local or state 4x4 asocc. should be able to help.
    Just make sure its accredited, Who knows you could end up a tour operator.
    As for Gunshot vid been around awhile now, just a clown showing off,and very lucky, maybe too many $$$$ so not bothered IMO only
