L300 pulls a Cruiser at Palm Creek
Cape Tork August 2012
We drove the Old Telegraph Track (OTT) with our Mitsubishi van, up and down
without getting stuck. Yep, including Palm Creek and Nolan Brook.
Watch the videos and let me know what you think.
This is the exit out of Palm Creek, going North.
This Land Cruiser ute tried about 6 times but just couldn't make it for
that last couple of metres. Nor did the Troopy after I pulled out the
Cruiser :-) :-P

Mini Cooper (Part 1/2) With Helicopter Turbine Jet Engine Smokes
Having shared the track with it at Homestead Miami Speedway in my 2002
Cooper S it was outrageously fast in a staight line but seeming dangerous
trying to turn. Are there plans to try to make it turn a corner or will
this be a drag machine? Since the Mini is a throttle by wire any thoughts
of syncronizing the two engines to the single throttle pedal?
