A 4x4 is Born....

Download a show called "A 4x4 is born" from the net, features about 15? episodes, but covers up some cool, cheap, interesting ideas on building a 4x4 from ground up. BTW it was aired on UKs Discovery channel. Quite cool.... more knowledge there than in JP's magazines!

Re: A 4x4 is Born....

http://www.difflock.com/buyersguide/...rn/index.shtml

i used eMule and Bitcomet to download all the episodes.
watch it, its really worth all the info. Tons of tech shit.

BTW, i have MOST of episodes, and can upload them somewhere, so they are available, but i have no space, bandwidth on my box... PM me if you want me to do so-share it.

Thumbs up Re: A 4x4 is Born....

well, im on episode 7 of the whole 15 made, and i really think that this should be a prerequisite to posting any questions to this site. It explains a LOT about suspension, and whole 4x4 deal. Tons of tech stuff, about gears, how they work, how air lockers work, how to rebuild a rear end, cage, angles, how to mount it... etc... . Manual transmissions are also explained briefly. Really cool show to watch, wish Discovery here would do something like that....

If they ran it here back-to-back with Top Gear... *Drool*.

Memo to the Discovery Channel: if you bring either one of these back or over, for God's sake DON'T AMERICANISE THEM! Really, we can cope with the way they were originally made.
