Example text

To the many folks we talked with in our travels, or maybe just came across somewhere on a dirt road, thanks for your various comments and ideas. Occasionally I saw something which was clever, or different, or made life easier in a 4WD, and I made a note or took a picture of it, thinking it might come in handy one day. Some of those things have now been added to this new version. Foreword It never ceases to amaze me how many people purchase a 4WD but have no idea how to drive it. Today’s 4WDs offer a combination of excellent engines and in some cases an arsenal of off-road gadgetry to get you through – forgiving of drivers that tackle obstacles in the wrong gear, the wrong range, from the wrong angle and at the wrong speed!

Many of the top-class 4WDs have accepted the flow-on of some of this development. Through technology and mechanical design, most current AWD vehicles are designed to get you up to the ski-field safely and easily, and through the typical gravel and muddy tracks into the Pony Club. Many would tow your ski-boat back up the steep boat-ramp well. Apart from being effective commuters and people-movers, many of these mid-sized AWD vehicles have proven themselves in quite another area altogether, through their now-proven on-road towing abilities, as serious players in the growing world of ‘Around Australia by Road’ explorers.

You may have noticed that it takes less handbrake pressure to hold the vehicle when it is facing downhill than it does if facing uphill. This is because of the mechanical design of the rear drum brakes. Hand throttle Almost all 4WDs are fitted with a hand throttle. Don’t confuse this with the choke on a petrol-engined vehicle. The symbols on the knob are different – check them. The hand throttle is another form of accelerator, but instead of being foot-operated, the linkage is managed by the driver via a hand-adjusted cable.
