Looks goooooood !!!

Hows the power drain on an uphill?... I doubt too much on your TD42, but in general for the more traditional basic TD42 with turbo set up?

Thanks Cedric

If I could make a guess I would say it feels like about 10% power going down the drain when moving from 33" to 35".
I have felt this on my Patrol as well as others so think in general the TD42's dont mind the bigger tyres.

the biggest compromise on 35" is that low range becomes a bit fast for my liking, rock crawling there is quite a bit more strain on the clutch. Otherwise it's awesome :blonde: :blonde:

On down hill (low range) my turbo is already pushing the Patrol so I do not want it any faster at all!!!!

Brakes not good enough at all.

Presies wat Tijmen daar se, dis een van die min negatiewe punte.
But I think the positive points outnumber the negitive ones :thumbup:
