Re: Mt Coree/Flea Creek 23/09/2012 (now with video)


Great report and vids Michael. I felt I was with you all the way.
The random track vid through the bushes reminds me to get another tin of cut & polish. Did you get many fine "scratch" marks in the duco/
My other half always checks out the duco when I get back from trips and makes a fuss about the very fine marks left by passing vegetation..........oh well....the exy is used for fun fun fun....not for show. I've told her many times that when I'm behind the wheel I don't have to look at the exterior so it's not a problem for me he he he

cheers

Awesome videos Michael. Shame you didn't get all of the climb up from Flea Creek but I think everyone gets the idea.

Dave, plenty of bush pin stripes. That track was very narrow.

I posted the details about the GPS program I used here. It runs on any android unit with built in GPS.

Re: Mt Coree/Flea Creek 23/09/2012 (now with video)


I got up Mount Coree today. We drove up from Mountain creek road onto Two sticks road. That is a great drive. Then after stopping at the Coree camp ground we headed up the climb. Those ruts are alot deeper in person. We had a Prado which did it easily and a forester which struggled through the ruts and of course the X trail went through easily. What a great climb though. Surprised my mate in the Prado as he thought we would get stuck at the ruts. I just love the X trail just continues to surpass my expectations. I really noticed the difference with the Yoko Geo ATS tires to. So much grip. I just need to lift the car. Got home and inspected the underbody after a little hit. My sump has a nice clean ding in it. Ill knock that out next service.

Re:


Good on you. That was my first foray into 4WD'ing as well.

Those ruts are ridiculous near Mt Coree... seriously who does that!

Interesting how you say the Yoko's have made a difference. Similar opinion shared by Todd when we went up there. Did you deflate the tyres? I found that even on the stock tyres it made a HUUUUGGGEEE difference going down to 26 PSI.

I see you're from Canberra Mike. Interested in heading up to Flea Creek and Webbs Ridge Rd one day? I don't like going by myself. My totally stock X-trail handled it fine.

If you're thinking about the lift, I just got mine installed (today) at Pedders Belco for $780.

Michael,
That drive was the roughest i've done in the X-Trail. Those ruts are pretty crazy but easily acheivable. Watching my mates Prado go through you can see where the more offroad wheel articulation comes into its own. His wheels just stayed on the ground.
You'll find it so much easier with the suspension lift. I'm jealouse. My X-Trail is stock apart from the tyres. I dropped the pressure in mine from the plate spec to 30psi all round at the camp ground. Probably should have done it earlier as two sticks road was a bit rough in parts and it came through the cabin a bit. I mostly noticed the difference in traction as we had a subaru Forrester in front of us with HT tyres and he span a bit in sections. Especially in the muddy section before the Coree camp area. How good is the descent control comming down. Its like a low range. Now we need something like that for inclines and we will be smashin it.
Yep im a local Berra boy. Would love to get out for some more drives. I'll need to organise with notice though as I have wife and two young kids to coordinate.
I have been planning the next day trip too. A trip out along doctors flat road to Wee Jasper and then back along an extended route or something.

MIke.....

Re:


Mike,
Even 30psi is like what you would drive with on the black stuff.
22-25psi and then you would notice a world of difference.
Articulation is also a major factor and one the X trail doesn't have much of.

Even with the lift the X-trail articulation isn't great. Just try to treat it as a 3-wheel-drive (i.e. keep 3 wheels on the ground and you will keep moving). The BLSD will kick in eventually if you end up on 2 wheels but it's a little too slow if you're going through a bog or up a steep hill.

Yes i agree and was dissapointed i didnt drop lower. I would have gone for 25psi and will definately go for that on the next trip. I looked over the tyres after the trip and couldnt see any damage thankfully.
