Re:


Nope John, 4WD are not required to have chains in the snowy mountains. Only 2WDs and the road wasn't slippery at all. Put it in AUTO mode and away you go.

Are you sure Jalal.
It is to my knowledge that all vehicles have to carry chains with them, 2 or 4WD.

Yes Tony. I am sure they're not required for 4WDs heading to Mt Selwyn (where I have been to) and the information on their website confirms it HERE

quote:

You will also need to arrange snow chains for your vehicle either before you leave or on your journey down as they are compulsory for all two wheel drive vehicles and recommended for four wheel drive vehicles in “snow/ice risk areas”



I drove in the T30 to Perisher previously and didn't need to fit snow-chains either, but I had off-road tyres fitted.

It's also mentioned on the Perisher website that 4WDs are exempt from fitting snow chains.

Re: First Trip to the Snow in the Red Bull


From the NSW Government. Transport, Roads & Maritime Services web site.........

.National Park regulations state that all vehicles (except four wheel drive vehicles) entering the National Park must carry chains when driving through designated 'snow and ice' risk sections. Snow and ice risk sections are identified by black and yellow signs within the Kosciuszko National Park. The current designated 'snow and ice' risk sections are:

    Alpine Way – Thredbo to Tom Grogin
    Kosciuszko Road within the National Park boundary
    Guthega Road within the National Park boundary

cheers

Re: First Trip to the Snow in the Red Bull


I would still take some anyway as there have been times when it was howling with snow and visibility was down to about 50m with plenty of ice on the road with the freezing temps. Chains break through the ice to grip where rubber will slide regardless of 4WD or not. Better than slipping into a ditch and cheap insurance to have when you are wanting to leave the carpark at 6pm

Re: First Trip to the Snow in the Red Bull


Awesome report Jalaski - I must say a "Told you so!!!!!"

I've been amazed at the smooth power once you wind things up.

In the city (Adelaide anyway which isn't so much like Sydney/Brissy etc) the car has it's own rhythm (not all that zippy unless you really floor it - or stir the Manual Mode at high revs).

T30 would be ultimately faster but.

Re:


Like you Jalal the hyper rails come into their own.

I now travel some dark back roads early morning(4am) and sometimes at night and found the hyper rails to be of great use.

Great report and the pics of the red bull playing in the snow were great!
