Not so much a mod but a great tool.
I purchased a Hypertech speedo calibrator, a very simple tool to use & now my speedo & gear changes are where they should be.

Yalwal Monkey Gum trip

Unread post by Clarkey16 » April 29th, 2015, 9:14 pm

Visited Yalwal last week with some guys from work for our annual work mates 4wd camping trip.
The weather was well... wet but a few ale's later we didn't care :drink:

I had a great idea to go do Monkey Gum Fire trail in the wet .... How hard could it be :crazy:

Since none of us were local to the area we set off entering the track from the south end, driving through what seamed like 100 bottomless puddles (lot of fun :D) until we got to the ladder at the look out.

We walked the first rocky section & decided it was quite doable so we selected low range & away we went, picking our lines & using the rocks to our advantage we slowly crawled our way down without issue.
After about half an hour the rain started again, right as we reached a rather steep & rutted section of the track.

The track at this point mostly consisted of clay & with the rain it was getting very slippery. We began our decent (which I would best described as a controlled slide) using the ruts to keep on the track, it was at this point I started to notice bits of broken tail lights, some shattered glass & pieces of 4wd that the track had claimed from previous adventures :petrified:.

We had been sliding down this hill for about an hour & I was starting to feel a bit anxious. As we neared the bottom there was our first chance to turn around safely so we stopped & accessed the track ahead, the rain had not stopped & the next bend was extremely rutted & we couldn't walk it as we couldn't stay upright it was so slippery.
It was at this point I pulled the pin, my Hema app on my phone wasn't showing the track because I had no reception & my mate with the HN6 GPS said he couldn't find the Wombat Flats road that we were supposed to head out on. My main concern was that if we went on & we couldn't find a way out we wouldn't be able to get back up & around the corner in front of us as the ruts were that deep that we would have to skull drag ourselves out with the winch's.

So with that we began our trip out back up the way we came. Two hours later we had finally winched our way back to the top of the clay section. Chris in his Colorado had lost all of his wheel centres & a bit of rock rash on his rims, his front number plate was missing & he had pealed one of his BFG KM2's of the rim. I on the other hand had totally trashed the appearance of my new front left ATX rim (but it survived) smashing the centre cap in the process, rear centre cap lost its badging. My left front guard & door also had an encounter with the same obstacle that trashed the rim giving me a foot long gouge as a souvenir.

Sorry for the lack of recovery photos but we were a little busy.

I'd like to say a special thanks to our winch crew... Mick, Glen & Chis. All of whom had never been involve in a recovery before but are all now more then equated with tree trunk protectors & how to free spool a winch. If they ever come camping with me again I know I will be in good hands

And by the way, I have now been informed that we were on the last corner & it was an easy drive out after that!
But what fun would that have been. :lol:

Yep L/T & are quite heavy. I am heading to Alice Springs next month so it should be a good test for them. For a tyre with no siping they are surprisingly good in the wet.
