New to Off-Road Driving? Check here!

I'm still in the works of learning off-road myself so I figured I would share my reference with fellow noobs!

>>> <<<

This site covers:
  • Basic Skills
  • Traversing Slopes
  • Climbing Slopes
  • Descending Slopes
  • Snow Driving
  • Mud Driving
  • Sand Driving
  • Wading

It even has a whole section on, heaven forbid you need to do this, Recovery!

This site has been a huge help to me, hope it helps you all out, too!

*NOTE* It's a UK website so spelling is a little odd for some of us ("Tyre = Tire" & "Petrol = Gas" and other small things like that) Just a heads up!

Good links! I myself am amazed I have not done some serious damage to my X yet...only been offroad a few times and typically follow crazy people like Midget28 lol

I've never really known or read what the 'correct' strategy is...typically just winged it ad happy I haven't done something too stupid yet
