Has anyone used them for a days off roading? Got a friend with a green oval saying i should get Bertha Muddy, i have looked at there site and it looks a bit daunting for a noobie off roader. Is there any easy bits? The Fronty is an every day drive so i dont wont to break it but getting it muddy would be fun

They have got a cross section of stuff matey, so plenty for a less modded truck...I havent been there for years but I reckon where it has been fairly dry a lot more will be doable than in the winter...

Its a good site and got some real mad stuff...and easy access to the M40... :wink:

Apparently "Identify it" is not the correct answer!

The worse time to go there is in the dry. Its an old pit, so you can well imagine what it gets like in the dry (very hard ground). Wet . damp is best, and it is do-able in a little modded car. Just a few of the hill climbs that you may want to avoid, but otherwise you can pretty much just drive around.

If you leave there with no breakages, then you probably drove in grabbed a burger and drove out :D But thats not a bad thing. The site is small, and you can have fun there. Just don't go expecting you won't break / dent/ damage anything.

3 of us went up there last year, and 3 of us left with breakages. :lol:
For what it's worth it was worth all the while
It's something unpredictable but in the end is right
I hope you have the time of your life
