    But that's a very good point you've brought up. The concept of balance and line selection process on dirt bikes is foundation to how you would you about in a 4x4.

    Yes very much so.
    Think of the speed you need to think about putting your bike in the position you want it to be in, whether that line is going to effect the next obstacle, corner, jump or whatever on that downhill track,
    It's a similar train of thought for 4wding (modified obviously), but much slower. You have a lot of time to think about it and include things like diff clearance and wheel track

    Well this is all promising, I have dirt bike, road bike, mountain bike background! I grew up in the north of WA so know the fundamentals of beach 4WDing but no mud inland experience.

    Can anyone recommend a club in SEQ? Preferably south side as I’m based in maudsland.

    Have you had a think into how this could help the thought process @Hodge?
