Sometimes its better to keep going and keep the momentum up. If you stop, especially in sand, you can get yourself into more strife.
Of course if you've had a bit of experience 4wding, then only you will know its time to stop.

Re: Maxtrax


Scot

I cannot stress enough the importance of correct tyre pressure - I probably carry on a bit about this, but from first hand experience a difference of between 2 to 5psi can impact greatly on how the vehicle works. There is a 'sweet' spot for sand work depending on your tyre type/size and when you find this with some experimentation, the vehicle doesn't labour as much.

I found Maxtrax and other such devices to be useful only when bogged really deep - with correct pressure for sand work you should not get to that point.

I use an analog pressure gauge with a 0 to 40 range to give me accurate readings particularly between 10 and 20 psi

Hope this helps and have fun

John

Re: Maxtrax


Max Trax are a rip off. Way overpriced. Lower psi, and if that doesn't work, carry two strips of shade cloth. It's the best stuff on sand. Dig then wedge the shadecloth under the wheels, lay it out in front. Even throw some sand on the sides for good measure. Your away. No ifs or but's. It works.

G'day Ty

Not sure if anyone does, but if you're prepared to come to Brisbane, I'll lend you my set of 2.

Hope this helps.

Re: Maxtrax


I've used them - posted some Youtube links in the video section of this forum some time ago.

They take up room in the vehicle and are expensive. But they do work but so does shadecloth as mentioned previously.

Re:


Has anyone mounted the Max Trax on the roof rails? I haven't got a basket yet so thinking of mounting the Max Trax on the roof rails especially when it gets muddy. My rails are Nissan OE (Rhino?). Cheers
