4 x 4 f*+ckwits
Drove into work today bit tricky but no major dramas on narrow snow covered lanes. That is untill the cocks with 4×4's come the other way. Sat in the middle of the road doing 40mph thinking they are invincible. That would be you in the Navarra, that would be you in the Discovery that would be you in the Freelander you f*ckin co*kjockeys. Sadly all but one were women and seemed to be be clueless as to what to do or even slow down. Anyway made it and am now bored at work, hence the post.Posted 8 years agostevenmenmuirSubscriber
Woman broke down in our road this morning so the guy coming down towards her decided the best course of action was to swear at her and ask why she hadn't pulled over before she broke down 🙄 There was lots of swearing back and forth and the bloke did sod all to actually help. Think there'll be more of this before it warms up.Posted 8 years ago
i've had the opposite, driving over the snake pass before christmas i was constantly held up by timid drivers in 4x4s driving too slowly.
in a 2wd car they need to understand that momentum is my friend and when they stop on an uphill corner or mince downhill i'm going to get stuck or smash into the back of them
but i've had far more trouble with people in normal cars so not going to tar them all with the same brush
basically eberybody on the road is shit except mePosted 8 years agotrailmonkeyMember
The peace of mind that I experience whilst travelling around safely in my 4×4 allows me the space to reflect on the joys of owning what some are clearly envious of, of slowly killing polar bears, of watching less successful people struggle and of driving 1 metre from the back of nervous looking people who can't wait to get home and fill the internets with tales of evil Landrovers.
Marvelous.Posted 8 years agohitmanMember
4×4 drivers = f**kwits shocker !!Posted 8 years ago
You should see it around here – unbelievable driving!
Out at 6.0am and some people are driving without their lights on, others tailgating ridiculously close!!
Guy drove around the corner of a road so fast he span off and did a 360 degree power slide and almost rolled the car.
I'm staying in and going out on my bike offroad away from the idiots 🙂amediasSubscriber
instead of all this:
4×4 drivers = f**kwits shocker !!
non 4×4 drivers = f**kwits shocker !!
BMW drivers = f**kwits shocker !!
audi drivers = f**kwits shocker !!
RWD drivers = f**kwits shocker !!
young drivers = f**kwits shocker !!
old drivers = f**kwits shocker !!
red car drivers = f**kwits shocker !!
blue car drivers = f**kwits shocker !!
can we agree to just settle on:
*some* people = f**kwitsPosted 8 years ago
others, not so much…
I love the 4×4 haters, here are a few good reasons why i drive a navara
1. i can go biking get the bike dirty as fook and chuck it straight in the back without worrying about getting car dirty
2. in the summer i go camping alot and get to leave most of gear in car all summer to just get in and go, not constantly packing and unpacking.
3. when the weather is shite like now I get to take the back lanes home and leave the main routes clear for all the 2wheel drivers(and still beat them there)
4 If your really knew what you were talking about you would realise my diesel navara is far more fuel efficient than most 2ltr rep mobiles so it actually does some good too.Posted 8 years agooldgitMember
Me to mcboo. Seems some people think that 4X4 drive gives you 4X4 stopping. You still have to drive well, hit the brakes in a 4X4 and your suddenly in control of a two ton sledge.Posted 8 years ago
I learnt alot about driving 4X4s in the Army, probably learnt a bit more when the instructors weren't watching 😛 and I learnt some great tips when I did a basic course so I could drive my company 4X4 in a certain companies siteshoraMember
best tip on driving a 4×4 if the conditions are really bad, let the car do the work, engine braking is very underrated in bad conditions
Agree. Stay away from the brakes as much as possible- even a short stab would unsettle the car.
In general a smoother driver makes for better mpg anyway and my sis-in-law said a few weekends ago after she glanced at the speedo as she thought we were doing 50/felt slow and not the indicated 80 on the clock. That, I felt was a huge compliment 😀Posted 8 years agooldgitMember
Been teaching my little girl how to drive the Landrover on an old dissused airfield (with permision) we can push it to the limit safely. I'm hoping she will learn what you can and can't do in a 4X4, and not be either over cautious or take risks.Posted 8 years ago
Seen some people who I must assume are lucky idiots. Tanking up to roundabouts on snow and ice assuming they won't have to stop seems a common one.HansReySubscriber
4×4 problems? Round here, theyre all pulling people out of ditches, drifts, etc. OK, the chelsea tractor lot are a pain, but don't give the Defender crew a bad rap.
saw something about a big diesel engine being more fuel efficient than a 2L petrol. That may be correct if you have decent fuel injector. For example, audi diesel engines are leagues more fuel efficient than a toyota prius, because they put some decent dielectric ceramics in. I think this is a great bit of info, great for shooting down the Prius lobby!Posted 8 years ago
