Hi ostrici

Been a long time since I visited but Romania was probably my favorite country in Europe to travel in the late 90s and early 00s. Are there some good off-road tracks to take the Treg on up in the Carpathians?

Cheers.

Hi,
I never pushed my toaureg hard offroad cause mostly I use my dirtbike. But for sure I saw many off road cars from allover Europe especially Poland and CZ. So yeah, there are many tracks, maybe some could be even official or legal. Look for Zarnesti, Campina, Brasov, Petrosani, Sibiu.

c ya

South West part of Russia. "Krasnodarski krai" (you might remember Sochi hosted last winter Olympic games). I am from Novorossiysk, Black Sea coast.

PS. Initially all regions were numbered in alphabetical order (with some exceptions). For licence plates they use only the letters which are common both for Latin and Cirillic alphabets. It appeared the man/or group who developed that system suffered mathematical cretinism. Finally all possible combinations were over and they had to assign new numbers. What a shame!

The OP used the Title RWD....Don't thinks so! Have you ever turned ESP "OFF". If you do this then the Centre Diff will send all the power to the axle set which has the LEAST resistance..

Try it, I can promise the Treg steers very well with the Right Foot.

Looking at your Home Town in Google Earth. I can understand why you and your neighbor "nikoloz" have Treg's (4X4's). You don't have much in the way of Flat Land...!

Right you are, hedditch. I posted some short videos earlier, so you may have an idea about the local scenery/landscape.

In contrast, the vast majority of Australia is as shown in the Forum Banner Picture. We have some mountainous areas, such as the South East and Tasmania but the bulk is flat and level when compared to your home (QTH).
