Wow a Disco with a steering rack?


Actually it was the presence of this type of "I know everything driver" that made me give up 4x4 recovery organisations Rolling Eyes

Now what training company from the North West of England uses orange vehicles.............................................?

And is it the same company that ignores the guidelines set by the LDNP?

There used to be an 'offroaders' section here on Difflock, but I can't seem to find it anymore....

Anyway, there are a couple of orange Disco's available for sale:

LR Disco 300 TDi and their colour/print scheme matches...

So, snapping a steering rack? Going a bit fast were they? Very Happy

"Police arrested the driver at the scene at 11am this morning when he returned and tried to recover the vehicle." well done that thin blue line!!!

Do you mean the '4x4 Response' made up of volunteers, and their trainers or the '4x4 Training' organisations that train drivers to handle vehicles better off tarmac?

Either way, I think you're on about the trainers thinking their infallible and perfect in every way...

Not necessarily the trainers, although there may be some like that, but certainly some of the membership that is attracted to 4x4 Response.

My own beef with "trainers" was the fact that the only thing they wanted to train you for was operating a radio - never training drivers to handle vehicles better off tarmac no matter how many times I asked about it...


BTW do the trainers think that they are infallible and perfect in every way or is that just your own view on them?

I'm infallible and perfect in every way and oddly on my last driving test the head examiner told me I should consider a career as a driving examiner. Maybe there's something in it?

It was a closed group on Facebook, but once in the actual thread/posting has been heavily edited... there is just the basic info remaining. But there are plenty of people there showing other inappropriate clips and talking about them...
