Oregon High Desert

Oregon High Desert

Hi,

I got to spend the day playing in the Oregon High Desert in a TDI Syncro today.  I have to say that the torque of the diesel is very impressive.  I have attached a couple of pics to show you can see what High Desert is over here.  It is at about 3000 ft above sea level and very volcanic, so the ground is a mix of volcanic rocks and ash filled soil.  The Syncro has a rear locker and solid shaft and de-coupler, and needed both on the soft slopes and rocky lavar bed crossings.

 

Cheers,

Here is another pic showing how with out the locker on this soft and loose surface you can easily get stuck in a dry creek bed.  But after backing down it and engaging the lock it was not problems.
