Stockton Beach Escapade - Now with more pics!!


Had some friends who live in Newcastle invite me up to Stockton on the weekend for some 4wd'ing in the dunes.

The group was my X-Trail, 2 Nissan Patrols and a Landcruiser.

Had a great day, learned a lot about what the X-Trail can do in sand (almost as much as a Patrol, with enough runup =D )

Had a great day and I recommend a trip up there for any X-Trail driver.

Dave,

Now have fun getting the sand out for the next month.

Did you go in at Lavis Lane or Anna bay?

What pressures did you run on?
Are you Auto or Manual?

Went on Stockton Beach on Anzac Day. Lowered tires down to 16 psi. Only got bogged down once in the soft dunes. Had lots of fun.

Here are some pictures

Easy run along the beach at low tide

Xtrail was just as good as Prado

Re: Stockton Beach Escapade


I ran in lock mode. The problem I had with the bog was that I went to go down a dune and realised it was to steep so I tryed to slowly turn around on the soft part of the dune about 3 metres back from the edge. Problem that front left bogged in on full lock. INstead of trying to drive out and make it worse I just said to snatch me out. It tokk 3 pulls to get me out. I reckon you need to get stuck at least once a 4wd trip or you havnt gone Xtreme enough! emoticon

Matt,

When trying to turn you dont leave in Lock do you as this can damage drive system.
Run in Auto as when over 32klms goes to Auto anyway. And if a bit stuck then lock.

I will send a PM next time i am heading that way as well.
