Mojo's dirty weekend in abingdon

Lots of piccies of 4x4 & mud at abingdonphotos.com, these two stood out for me :slight_smile:

Saturday mud run abingdon781
Saturday mid course abingdon737 (clean!)

Then I found

Saturday mid course abingdon920

Saturday mid course abingdon735 shows TFW in his Jap Fwah-by, this is the only time it was (a) clean and (b) not belching steam. Still has a number plate too :wink: Drove Elmo down there, round the course twice, and home, no dramas, no damage. Land Rover - it does what it says on the bonnet…

Looks like a very dirty weekend indeed :devil:

it was muddy, and the road on the front of my house still isn’t mud-free after I cleaned mine :slight_smile:

Saturday, middle of course 501 is the only time I was caught on camera, and even on that one I was on the way to a marshal point. It was a great weekend, with great company, again later this month at Sibbertoft ?

:frowning: Funds and work would mean thats a no, I’ll take a rain check if I may?

/me passes Mojo an umbrella :smiley:

Sure, no problem. I think I’m going to be taking a car load there, parents and Bullseye and all seven seats in use.

It did earn the right to steam a little after trying the mud run.
Parked up steaming between some suspiciously clean green Ovals

However, whilst cahnging the temperemental gearbox I noticed the sills, or rather their absence in most places :confused:

But its all weldable and on the plus side it didnt get stuck on the very first feature on the course :Poke:

I think I’m going to be at this one tomorrow, but not 100%. It would be nice if I could get to the bottom of why I don’t have diff lock.

DT.

Diff Lock ?

The “Like you stole it” approach works for everything but mud runs without needing difflock.

Spending tomorrow under mine getting **** in my eyes fitting a gearbox.
It needs an MOT at the end of the month and I need to learn welding without setting it on fire for it to pass that.

very true, but mine’s a landy and drive it like you stole it means things fall off or snap - like suspensions for example :slight_smile:

I’m not off-roading today, but if you need another pair of hands for the gearbox, give me a bell on the mobile. With any luck it’ll get me out of having to sort out the squeek on the Seat Ibiza :frowning:

DT.

The Snow has melted and the rain has stopped so I might have a go.
Feel free to pop over if you like.

And just for giggles, why not have hailstones propelled by gusts of wind.

:mad:

they must be on the way down here or missed us completely, although upon leaving the house earlier we now have a roof tile that is in the gutter :frowning:

the phrase it never rains but it pours was never quite so well used

DT.

A pity none of the photos survived, I was talking about this course today.
It is still active… More news to follow as appropriate

Have we got a secret squirrel smiley anywhere ?
