  1. initial feedback from the workshop is that there's nothing wrong with the calipers nor the braking system. As someone else said, it could be something else in the suspension which is causing this, so they're checking other things tomorrow.
  2. Hi everyone, yet another issue cropped up on my Puma, only noticeable at highway speeds (>80kmh): when I brake, the car dives to the left. Even if I hold the steering wheel straight, the car still does this. What could be causing this? Thanks
  3. A fun outing to Grabouw despite the inclement weather. First time out in my Defender since October 2017 due to drivetrain issue, which is now somewhat sorted out.
  4. yep, that's down to the active rear diff, which locks very quickly to improve traction.
  5. Finally got the landy back after it spent 7 months in the shop. During a very thorough investigation into the root cause of the vibrations, the following were replaced: - rear propshaft - A-frame ball joint - rear springs (Terrafirma Heavy) - all bushes The landy now drives much better, although there's still a vibration at low speeds coming from the gearbox/transfer case area (bum area) and the rear diff howls at around 80kmh. Having been without an off-roadworthy landy since Feb 2018, I'm done trying to sort this out any further. I guess this is a Defender after all, so I shouldn't complain that it isn't safe, comfortable, etc., and just live with the issues. 🙄

  7. very interesting to see how it works:
  8. some of cladding has been removed, and apparently it's no slouch on the highway:
  9. Our club went away to a farm close to Cape Town for the weekend, and we tackled their trail on Sunday. Here are some photos and a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGQ7pdD1_ko
