Made the land rover track my B*#$@.

Last night, my brother who works at an audi/porsche/jaguar/land rover dealership allowed me to take the 'reg on the infamous Land Rover test track. I conquered it with ease. But, as others have noticed... The egg's Achilles heel is the lack of articulation. But it made up for it with the fantastic locking diffs and ESP.

My brother also decided to take his prized '87 Grand Wagoneer on the track as well, and did surprisingly well. Of course, the jeep doesn't suffer from articulation issues.

Is it all hard surface? The track at the Solihull, UK factory is deep water/mud.

I think your roof bars are mounted the wrong way round.

The bar with the most sharply sloping slope is the front bar and the one with the longer, shallower slope is actually the rear bar.

Interesting. I'll take a look when I get off tonight. Never noticed.

Yeah, it's all rocks. I wish it was what they had here.

I think it's more for the ground clearance for the LR4

I think they're the right way.

That's a clearer picture and, yes, that's correct!
