Re: [Syncro_T3_Australia] Damp old wasserboxer??




Exploring U Tube a little further  I came across this testing  of how much wasser a wasserboxer syncro can plough through. 
And I thought I had a penchant for such .excursions

Maybe this is an option for the puriest, with 300000kms plus.Porshe conversion:)

Gday Joachim,

Rumour has it these are diesel syncros. Any veracity to this rumour?

If so, would you think prudence should prevail and not try this with a WBX2.1 donk?

Cheers.

Yes, Stuart's rig is a diesel. There's some discussion there on the SA Syncro group about walking the route first. I kind of winced a bit when someone said something like, "... if you were (taken by a croc), could have ruined the vacation of the people you ate guiding..." I'm paraphrasing but it was something like that. Something about crossing without the ferry because they abhorred the extortionist fee of 75 Rand per vehicle.

Just wanted to add that it is not a VW diesel. Both have Toyota 3CT 2.2 turbo diesels. In his defense, Stuart now has a 1.9mTDI built from an ALH VW in his other Syncro.

Not very good at all...........

75 Rand sounds cheap to me, I don't have diff locks (remember Ken)
and I would be stuck in the middle of that creek. I'm sure you caught
the ferry on the Jardine and $80 doesn't seem too bad when you
compare it to water, crocs and expensive repairs or a tow back to
Cairns....

Bruce,
Reminds me when our "Kombis to the Kape " group was up there being told that if you thought the ferry fee was too dear you were welcome to try the old way through the Jardine river. They pointed out that if your vehicle got stuck but you managed to make it to shore they would bend over backwards to help by giving you the phone number of the RACQ in Brisbane some 2000kms South.
I also haven't forgotten your kindness in lending me your UHF radio for the duration North. That trip was one of the best experiences in my life.
Cheers
Roger

That's pretty close. Except we don't all smoke Marlboro cigarettes.

I play Les' role on the Vanagon List (aka Gerry). I'm constantly having to ask some group members to avoid discussing firearms use to safeguard their steeds. The difference is they using semi-automatic hand guns (or shotguns) and their mounts are usually T3's. In one fellow's case, he rolls his own but he is not smoking tobacco.

Did I ever mention the optional H&K MP5 submachine gun case for my Syncro?

Ken,

Been a bit busy, sorry for the wait.

Just wanted to add that I happened to meet one of the Steyr Puch syncro test drivers back at the 20 years gathering in Graz, Austria, in 2006 and was talking with him about this video. Following his elaborations, I could not convince myself that such a river crossing can be done at all :)

While travelling the Kimberleys in 2003, 50 cm was the deepest I dared to cross with my stock WBX and 16" wheels, but there may be protective gear out there which may allow for crossing deeper water.

Hi Joachim,

 

Nice to hear from you again.

 

Not sure if you've seen this one from our recent Bateman's Bay tour. Roger Bell's epic crossing. It was a formed causeway at 50cm depth, but then he went off the side (while filming) into a further 30-40cm depth onto loose pebbly rocks. Just drove out as if nothing happened.

Which reminds me; Mark and/or Rick, is there any progress on the collation of every-ones pics. I'm looking forward to seeing more action, especially some of my T5, as I didn't get much myself.

 

Brian Reed.
