    Given most urban taxi drivers don't do more than 150 miles a day, I would say we are already there anyways.

    The problem with what there seem to be trying to produce is that the only market share they are going to win is what they lost with the Disco 5. So, at best, they are back to where they were in 2016. This vehicle is not going to win over any Landcruiser, Patrol or Wrangler buyers. I doubt it will sway many that are planning to purchase similar priced SUVs (BMW, Audi, Volvo, MB). It is really unclear to me as to what market they are expecting to win over.

    Close enough, Development Engineer at Bowler. The TC system is highly advanced, as - is the torque vectoring system. (basically one and the same) It does take into account steering input, engine load, engine speed, wheel speeds, current gear, pitch, yaw, Rear and center E-diff status (Locked-unlocked and everywhere between), steering angle and hundreds more.

    Long enough, I also race in Ultra4 Europe, so I get the big tyres/Lockers/massive flex argument. But many of these features are hardly applicable to a consumer level fleet vehicle. My current job also contrasts this whilst still remaining in the off road vehicles sector. I don't have a figure of how many miles and/or types of terrain I have covered off road, but it's enough to take a good grasp on what is suitable for use by a large consumer market.

    I never came back with the driving results. Sorry. It works fine, with no noise, backlash, heat or wear issues after another 40,000 miles in every day use. It also works fine when swapping back and forth with different pinions and ring gear ratios, retaining the original crush tube. Sounds like a botch, but when you think about how it works, it isn’t.

    I remember this well, I spent ages with the engine and box on stands/jacks. Look into the X-eng x-brake as an alternative to chopping stuff about to make room for the drum. My one regret on mine is not doing this; it would have made everything much easier. A good datum for engine position is the hole for the starter handle. The stock position is to have the crank nose pretty much in the centre of that hole. The bulkhead/tunnel is also a good measure as it's the only thing really limiting how high you mount the whole setup, and also dictates lateral positioning unless you scallop the passenger footwell. If you're working on a bare chassis, I'd encourage you to put a bulkhead on before you make any decisions about placement of anything. Bon courage!

    It is certainly the best of the collection of "maybes" so far. Still a Shogun replacement rather than a Defender replacement though... and why would you randomly have a picture of the car you are sitting in on the middle of the dash? Given that there are now also a bunch of other 'interior photos' on the Landroverphotoalbum group on Faecesbook, I wonder if it's all still part of the misinformation exercise. The dash shown in the other images has a similar looking speedo, but definitely doesn't have the vehicle image. What appears to be supposed to look like the same set of photos also has an air spring in one photo and a coil in another.

    33 pages of conjecture and speculation on on and such is the dearth of solid info on the real thing it's now down to discussing Lego models in the hope that they look a bit like what the real thing will. Funny old world.

    Perhaps, gentlemen, we can keep the focus of discussion on the positive or negative aspects of the technical nature of the new vehicle - and not our respective career histories. As far as the new Defender goes, if one remembers that they are not building something to do the same as the old one then it looks pretty good. It’s fairly clear that they’re aiming at the high end market and not utility, so a slightly boxier-shaped Disco is not unexpected. After all that’s all the original was - this is the newer version. The target demographic is not people operating in hostile environments after all, it will be designed to work well on road (which is where almost all 4x4s spend the majority of their time anyway) and like the other models in the current range it will be surprisingly good off road thanks to clever electronic systems. And it will no doubt be just as unreliable as the rest of the current range

    Mate of mine arrived at work with another mate laying in the engine bay of his golf operating the throttle, he was driving with his head out the window to see round the bonnet and shout instructions... No, he wasn't the sharpest tool in the box.
