Was actually pretty happy with ol' chubby, had all intentions to be sympathetic on the box etc, but you can guess how long that idea lasted :roll: , but everything held up really well, drove it home with everything still working, the steering wheel was still straight & all, might have sorted most of the durability issues,..... or maybe am just not driving it hard enough :lol:

Was a good bit of fun! knew there was not much hope of making it through as there was no bottom to it, looked as though this is where all the big boys get pulled up.... Was bugger all evidence of tracks after that, was a bit frustrating as if had of made it through, the way things were performing chubby wouldn't have had any issue at all with the rest. Recon will have a crack at the next mud run the 4x4 clubs have further south in winter as was pretty happy with it!
Would hate to think what would happen if the chains came adrift though, not sure if it's noticeable in the pic, but can kind of see how they expand with the centrifugal force....

Bit of a clogging issue with the sump guard too.. :? ...So much for the exhaust heat wrapping... Might have to re-consider the routing of things....
