This video shows the Volvo going along some of the green lanes of which we knew, thanks to a magazine article featuring them. The lanes were on the way to the seaside town of Filey from the west.
The green lanes weren't too exciting, with most of them just being bumpy dirt roads. Although, at the end of the video, there is a fording of a stream. The video also shows the complete 6mm front scrape plate which is fitted to the car.
My taking over a month from shooting to uploading was thanks to my video camera and computer repeatedly refusing to co-operate, Youtube repeatedly failing to upload without any apparent reason, and a lack of haste on my part.
1998 Volvo V70 XC Review
Mike Rutherford reviews the 1998 Volvo V70 XC (Cross Country) and puts it's
all-wheel-drive system to the test. He takes the V70 on a road test to see
how it performs and handles, both on and off-road, as well as seeing how
practical it is.
And here's the even older type of Viscous Coupling that was on the older
chassis. It is however easy to see that this one works better than the MY
'01-'02, as the rear wheels are actually spinning simultaneously with the
front wheels. However, note that this car has a manual gearbox transmission
compared to the previous clip, this results in the embarrassing end of the
clip and is what makes me laugh.
Fiat Panda 4x4 Off Roading 25.08.09
A few rocky sections of a green lane in Yorkshire. In the last clip, I
intentionally took a route to get some articulation, although I didn't
expect to lift the wheels. Also, I was expecting alot more trouble getting
the Panda up the steep grassy hill, which is why I gave it seemingly too
much momentum and power - sorry those of you who resent off roaders for
'damaging' the earth (the grass was put back, don't worry). Once again,
sorry for the wind noise, although at least, this time, the camera is
steady thanks to a tripod (courtesy of Smokinghat12).
The bull bar is off for the moment, due to a pending respray. Also, yes,
the headlights are unevenly bright. 'Tis due to an ongoing earth problem
with the headlight bulbs (we think) themselves.
