Volvo V70XC off roading 16.07.10

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.

Volvo XC70 AWD on sand ( VOLVO V70XC )
VOLVO V70XC, A Driving mistake, First of all, never ever step on that Brake Pedal when driving on the fine/soft sand :)Make sure that you use WORN tires why? Because you want to stay on top sand not dig in, Always keep that momentum. Once you are stuck if you press on the gas pedal more, you're just digging yourself into the sand, You should also lower the tire pressure, apperantly we DIDN'T do any of the above and below recommaditions, BTW also do not let your wife drive on the sand as I did , I had playing with the car on sand at least 20 minutes without any problems until I let my wife drive :)))))) ************* Do these : Like any major road trip, it is always a good idea to put your car in for a routine health check. The first thing that you must do before driving on sand is decrease your tyre pressure. The reason you do this is to provide better flotation by increasing the size of your car's "footprint" as this will significantly improve your traction. It will also cut down the amount of strain on your vehicle as well as wear and tear on the tracks. If you don't know what would be the optimal pressure for your car, generally a good pressure to set it at is 15 psi. Obviously you must pump your tyres back up when you plan on taking the car back onto the road, so make sure you have a pressure gauge and a means of pumping your tyres back up with you. If there are tyre tracks already on the sand from a previous vehicle, try to stay on their tracks as it creates a better surface to drive on. You must also try to avoid rapid changes in speed. Over-accelerating can actually lead to going slower and over-braking could lead to you getting bogged. If possible, try to coast to a stop rather than braking. Take-off should be done as smoothly as possible with all wheels facing forward and gear changes made at fairly high revs. When turning, try to turn as wide as possible to decrease the chance of getting bogged down. When driving up or down steep sand dunes, make sure you go straight — even a slight angle will cause problems. Also, if you start to slip down a dune it is best to accelerate to straighten and not use the brake. If you are going up a sand dune and can't reach the top, put the car into reverse and drive backwards to the bottom. Don't coast back down, and definitely don't try to do a U-turn. If you do happen to get bogged down, resist the urge to jump on the accelerator, as this will only make things worse. You should attempt to slowly reverse away from the position. If that doesn't work, let your tyres down a bit more and try again. When you get home, hose down the car, particularly underneath, to remove the salt and sand which can get trapped.

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.
