Only major issue is I can't get enough of driving it :D and my cheeks are sore from smiling too much.

Couple of things I have noticed over time is that whilst it has a rear Lokka, I have never really needed it. The traction control is VERY good and lifting wheels does not halt it's progress. If a wheel is airborne, it will turn a couple of times before the opposite wheel kicks in.

The Rok also loves sand. Dropping the tyre pressure down to 16psi it just slowly walked up the heavily scolloped dunes.

Good to hear mate. Traction control has certainly come a long way
