4x4 Tips
 
Speed & Momentum 
If you hit a spot of trouble DON’T accelerate – it can get you into a worse position. Slow down and take it easy – this helps you
to keep traction and your tyres will work for you instead of spinning aimlessly. When approaching an obstacle, you need
momentum. The trick is to start a little way back to gain the momentum you need. This is a skill which you will master over time. 
     
Limits

Don’t try new tricks when you’re out alone. Test your limits when you’re with more experienced drivers.

     
Mud
Use a stick to test a new mud hole for depth and softness. Remember a soft hole can prove impossible to escape! Enter the mud hole with a little momentum and if you feel that you’re getting stuck turn the wheel left to right to gain traction. Once you’ve
gone as far forward as you can try reverse out. 
    
Windows 
Keep the windows up to avoid a mud shower or a face full of dust.
     
Stuck 
If you are truly stuck, try letting a little air out of your tyres for better traction and when you get out of the ditch don’t forget
to fill them up again.
   
Stalling 
If you stall with your tailpipe under water, get towed out and pull the spark plugs before starting the engine again. A cylinder
full of water can destroy an engine. When the plugs are out, however, the water will be safely ejected.
     
Obstacles 
Go slowly over obstacles. Pull the hand brake a little for tension on the drive line to slow the vehicle and enable you to
accelerate gently over.
     
Steering
Always hold the steering wheel with thumbs out when you’re off-road. If you hit a ditch or obstacle the wheel could spin too
fast and hurt your thumbs. Keeping them out helps prevent injury. Keep your hands and arms inside the truck to avoid accidents.
    
Tools & Spares
Keep the following with you: A hi-lift jack, Steel wire, Spare tyre and plug kit and a medical box
     
Safety 
Wear a safety belt. Don’t travel alone. Have a cell phone on you. Don’t drink alcohol when driving. Get back on the tar road
before dark. Give fellow 4X4 drivers on the track plenty of space. Don’t race or churn up the soil needlessly.
    
Respect
Respect the land, the other people using the trail and the vehicle! Douse campfires, don’t litter (this includes cigarette butts), stick to trails so as to avoid damaging the plant life.
       
Leave your ego at home and remember it's about having fun!
