Re: my xtrail snapzz...
Hi qGm (name?)
And Welcome to the Australian X-Trail Forums.
Nice photgraphs, not sure if Nissan would accept them, although it's worth a try. I hope the clarity is not so clear due to the effects of hosting them on imageshack?
The flying X-Trail in our banner is real and was submitted by our member "theflyingexy"
Here are two quotes which tell us his story:
I can assure you all that the flying exy is indeed real and no photoshop additions were required. It all went down at Lancelin in May 2005 when I was racing my friend's Patrol up the dune. As you can see I went faster than I expected and there is no sign of the old slow patrol :-) After a day where the drivers of two patrols, a landcruiser and a hilux surf attempted to force an xtrail xtraction, this was sweet revenge.
Unfortunatley there is only the one pic. We did have a video camera but the battery died just as I started off on the run up (puking!!)
The damage was far lighter than I was expecting. When the nose dipped over in the air I was sure the engine was going to go through the radiator on landing, but the dune sloped downwards, so the only damage was to crack both the front plastic bash (splash?) plates. We ripped these off as they started to drag in the sand. I did also need a wheel alignment but other than that everything was fine. Got off lightly I reckon.
