Hello everybody. This is my first post on this forum. First of all sorry for my English, it is not good =) We are a team based on Turkey. That name called "Land Rover Adventure Team Turkey". We have been touring for 10 years. This july we went to Iran but before we made a Turkey tour with many defenders after that 4 defenders went to Iran. We took 10550 km in 30 days. I upload some images. I Hope you will enjoy Next year we will be on East EuropeYou can follow us on Instagram (I hope giving a link is not a problem). I will post more about our tours festivals.https://www.instagram.com/landroveradventureturkiyeRegards,
Hi Folks, Probably been done to death before. However, considering one of these snorkels for my 1996 Defender 110 300Tdi One thing that is weighing on my mind is the integrity of the seal between the snorkel and the air intake tubing. Is my interpretation correct that the Mantec relies on a seal with the snorkel housing and the bodywork? Also, the Safari uses another hose in place that is hose clipped to the snorkel body? Would be interested in peoples experiences. Both look really good snorkels. Liking though the "simpler" mounting of the Mantec, although to be fair, only planning on fitting a snorkel the once.

What is the best route to go down when building a competition vehicle for safari comps and trailling events? I would like to enter the Welsh Xtreme and Ultra4 further down the lines but am interested in what would be the best way to go? So far I am thinking of starting with a V8 discovery or range rover then taking it down to the chassis and rebuilding a roll cage and frame. I am looking at moving the engine back and swapping the drive shafts from front to back so it sits more mid engine and adding dome big 35 to 37 inch tires hoping not to strip the half shafts. I am also looking at eventually upgrading the axles to Spidertrax once I have got more into it and getting a Chevy engine block. Any help with the design and any lessons that you have learnt along the way would be appreciated.
