Off-roading my Sisley



This is my 2nd Sisley, the other one being in too good a condition to take off-road. So last Sunday we took it to a 4x4 funday. We made all the guys in Landies laugh for all the right reasons. I was amazed how good they are to be honest. We even managed to get up a steep bank at the first attempt, which an Isuzu Trooper failed to get up, and all the Landies made a right meal of.

Looking

Didn't think that they were that capable in water. Did you have to move the air intake for the engine

Re: Off-roading my Sisley

The shot where the Panda is on it's nose is posed, i,d been driving down there all day, it felt pretty dramatic coming down that bank feeling each wheel take it's turn to lift of the ground. After driving through the water it had a bit of a misfire while the plug leads were wet, but they soon dried out, and the air intake is standard. It was a great day, seeing and hearing peoples reactions to seeing a Panda mixing it with "real" 4x4's was good.

Re: Off-roading my Sisley

I took my Selecta through flood water that went right over the bonnet and it too misfired and then was okay after a few minutes - the horn never recovered though...

These are brilliant pictures
