    did it on 1st gear locked, it just needs more revs then VDC more happy . but could be my engine on low revs have some problems maybe too , because i have O2 sensor errors on catalyst , not sure if thats related but engine sounds like it missing something on low revs. tried same place with 2 pedals style . wondered if it would go better like holding brake pedal with right leg and same time raising revs to about 3k and letting go brake . i thought VDC would get better kick maybe but its still not low gear as car with low gear would just drive here from stop no problem. not subaru though. but doing with pedals brought some results sure and it feels better inside more punchy still if its not enough to climb then its not enough and its just sits there. and now everytime i drive there im making that part of track worse and worse well better for myself i mean haha. i dug allready many halls there so its harder to drive there up hill now . but its nice at least some chalange and its not hurting anyone its not road for use anyway just has some interesting climbing angles and turns

    how VDC cuts engine power and car just not moving anywhere. it looks just helpless there if you come it slowly and try to pass some holes... see my wheels have some grip and front wheel have all grip there but VDC is not enough to figure out that and give there more power... or its just that H4 engine here is lacking power ... would H6 3.0 work there better i wonder it does good job to not dig down deeper sure but car not moving too. well without momentum its not. im finding there that is kinda engine rev problem as if i give it more revs before that place its jumps over it , but if i strat from low revs then its like dead horse not going anywhere.

    Great custom work there man. And how you figuring out like on custom shocks how you know what would be good lenght and travel and how much it would go down and up and that springs will be enough. I so envy that freedom to just do what you want try things and test later.
  5. those are some scary dinosaurs you have there...hehe i live in safe and boring enviroment here nothing to see just some deers and foxes and rabbits, no slow animals here that you could find and look at them ... so cool

    new longer better version of bed in car ... same matress just seats now not folded by book just half and with extra boxes now its plenty of space to keep things too and put your head same time ... and now its even longer then i would need ... superb... next step would be some fan or diy air condition system to keep that air coller at night learned from some overlanders about boxes and thought what if it just use boxes ...what an amazing idea , no more need many bags and packets with stuff all over car now all can be better organized and allways in one place

    bought wrong rear strut mount as i ordered for normal shock and completely forgot that i need for self leveling and they not same... so as i took my old appart it broke down so wasnt possible to put it back and return those same day , and as its my daily car i needed to drive it like in couple hrs ...so i cut half from old mount where it holds srping and put new one with rubber part on top of it ... then did same with other side and well for now i dont feel any bad stuff there ..nothing is moving there nothing happening as spring just push that all up and they sit there tight...

    yes we have some mushrooms here and they comes more to autumn time . more like standard mushrooms like we have many lakes here and 1 sea its baltic sea. but many lakes and forests. no stones no hills , more like sand on some places but not much too, more like mud in forests or just dry surfaces. So its hard to find much obstacles if not mud or sand stuff. its like russia areas same here.

    ABS light gone fixed whats left its humming sound from rear, changed all 4 wheel bearings , but rear ones to used ones, changed rear both axles and tried drive on changed wheels front to rear still same ... and sounds changes with road type and depends to what side im turning sometimes... not sure all sound like bearing but i cvhanged it to not bad used one ... had about 7 days in all trips with 2 nights staying in one place , was sea then lakes then sea again. cooking was good thing and easy simple and fast , two peace camper stuff with portable mini gas burner or how its called no need fire nothing every morning coffe and then preheating some food or cooking sausages etc

    steering rack must be on center now as those links sits on same spots both sides when wheels look straight means it must be now ok that rack. time to try reset those abs lights again , fingers crossed and now that bolt tightened lots more its lil more heavy on steering maybe but i was used so much now to ratling front that now it seems so cool and new to me this experience. about that overheating still didint tested do that fan now works but it works on test mode... yh i found those 2 green sockets under wheel where abs test socket is , so if you connect those 2 greens with key turned to lights on dash it does that test where it test both your cars fans ...and they both working spinning and stoping an then again and they work, so that working now i guess ...frist will fix that abs light then will test does fan turn on after reaching some temp
