Re: Drew's T31 EXY


My poor baby has been in the wars a bit lately. I found this on it the other week. Assuming a car park job as someone pulled in beside me. Quotes to fix it in the $800 range emoticon
I can't figure it any way to get in there and see if I can pop it out myself.

Re: Drew's T31 EXY


Then last night my bullbar was christened by a small unfortunate macropod. Luckily it looks like the bottom edge of the bar took the brunt of it and caused it to roll under and hit the lower corner of the bumper, flexing it back a bit and popping the wheel arch trim off the clips.
But everything clicked back into place and I don't think there's any damage. Haven't looked at it properly in daylight yet though. emoticon

If you take off the rear panels inside the boot I'm guessing you will be able to push/beat it out from inside.

Hmmm I pried the trim off a bit and peeked in and it didn't look like I could access it. I'll have to take all my gear out of the boot and take the trim right off for a proper look.

Hi Drew,

Do you have ShuRoo's (AKA Hopper Stopper) on your car?

Re: Drew's T31 EXY


Brett, I still have one on the car. I did have two, but looks like I've lost one somewhere.

Don't know if they help. It didn't seem to worry the little one I clobbered. I think it was a wallaby, not an actual kangaroo, so I dunno if that makes any difference.
Mind you I was probably only doing 70km/h so the shuroo might not have been working at its best.

I've previously seen big roos by the side of the road and by the time I get within about 100m they head off. Whether it has anything to do with the shuroos or they just hear the car, I don't know.


EDIT: I just looked what an actual "ShuRoo" brand one is, I don't have one of those. Just the el cheapo little plastic whistle things. I didn't buy em, they were given to me so I figured I might as well stick em on lol

Re: Drew's T31 EXY


Hi Drew
I have had the plastic ones on all of my cars for many years. The only time I have seen animals near the road when I was driving was the night both of them where blocked by moths. I used to do a lot of disk and dawn driving between Parks and Dubbo and since then have always had them on my car. I believe that one is nowhere near as effective as two.

Re: Drew's T31 EXY


I may have to get a couple of new ones to put on. I have no idea if they work or not, but this is the first time I've seen a roo come on the road in over 2 years of having them on.

I do quite a lot of driving at night through very roo-populated areas. Being a snake catcher I never know when or where I'll get a call out at night and it's not uncommon to be heading off to the middle of woop woop at 10pm or later.
Plus my partner lives about 25mins away along a notoriously roo infested road, which is where I hit this one. I try not to head to her place along this particular road too late because the visibility on the sides is very poor in a lot of places, as you can see in the video. It was going up a hill with a fairly steep drop off on both sides so you can't see what's waiting to jump out onto the road until it's too late.

It also didn't help that I just glanced down at my speed as I let the revs drop a bit lower than normal going up the hill, and just as I looked back at the road I saw a flash of grey from the side then BANG. No time to react at all. Probably just as well I was going slower than usual, and just as well I didn't see it and instinctively try to swerve or anything.
