Rossi kirjutas:Thank you very much Landy and Hulkur :)
Im very happy and grateful for all the help I can get!
It feels real good to see that the offroading people seem to be the same friendly and helpful kind all over the world :D


You're welcome :)

Rossi kirjutas:I guess most of the competitors in the race is the same kind?! That´s very important I think........... 8)
How about language? Will I be able make myself understood whith my basic school-English in Estonia or do I need to studdy the Estonian language before visiting your country?


You'll manage pretty fine with your english. If we know you're coming, we arrange main documentation for you also in english.


Rossi kirjutas:I thought cars like "the Silvebeast" would be in the "free" class :shock: Are you trying to tell me there´s even more extreme cars competing in the race :?: :?:


The Silverbeast, Q-Kulgur and others of the kind will be TR-3, which is the most "advanced" :P

Rossi kirjutas:"Regarding the Mudakoon competition - it'll be several stages, max duration probably around 20 hours.""
Does this mean the race will go on for 20hours from start to finish??


Yes, correct, the whole thing will last around 20 hours. There might be some short brakes in between the stages. But usually the name of the game is survival. The stages will be anything, but not simple. The area is huge marshland, with everything you can imagine. Quite often also no place to hook your winch to, so better be prepared.



Rossi kirjutas:"Party, actually, honestly, after the competition you will sleep for 24 hours and don't want to hear of ANY party but sure, we'll have some good time together...
How/when do you party then?? Before the race, or not at all :?


trc answered this part pretty fine...

Rossi kirjutas:Hulkur/Andres:
Do you run the 6.17:1 geared axles on your 290GD? I´ve been told that it was a "common" gearing on that particular modell.......
My team and I are searching everywhere for axles with that gearing.
As I said before we are planning on runnin quite large wheels on our standard GD300 so we are a little worried that the power from the engine will be unsufficient in the muddier parts of the race :?
In the future the plan is to use a engine with a little/LOT more power but for now we will keep it close to standard for Maximum reliability.......
My day to day G is a LWB -85 GD300 with a turbo-converted engine, automatic transmission. I´m also runnin MT/R:s but 35" instead of 32" like you...

No, the stock ratio for w461 290gdt is 3,95 - so these are sort-of the most "speedy" axles on G. The 6,17 ration is used on military Wolf - the W461 250GD normally aspirating. And as trc pointed, you need to swap the ring and pinion, not the whole axle, unless, you get them cheaper than the whole axle. The MB stock price for ring and pinion set in Germany is roughly € 1000.- per axle. The axles you might get at half of the price, probably. I've seen them quite often sold on german ebay.

Rossi kirjutas:The race G is currently running 35"Boggers and so far that´s about the only major change we have done to the car but there will be a lot of changes before it´s ready to really Mud-wrestle
Here´s a few pics of the G-wagen we will be racing and also some pics of some of the other members of Tromsö Land Rover Klubb, but no Landys, Sorry about that Landy :wink: http://pirate4x4.no/forum/showthread.php?t=11432&page=2

Rossi kirjutas:A G-wagen may be last but NEVER least :lol:


Yeah, sure, aber natürlich :D

So, anyway, if you don't manage to Mudakoon, the summer competitions will be as much fun also, so you're be welcome any time :)

andres

:evil: :x :? I just lost my LONG commen to "Bad database connecton""
So I tray to write it newly down.

Rossi kirjutas:How about language? Will I be able make myself understood whith my basic school-English in Estonia or do I need to studdy the Estonian language before visiting your country?

Offcourse you can survive with youre english and now rush to learn Estonina language! There is allways someone who can translare from estonian to english and guide you. And if you met some one who dont, then on afterparty and few beers they can quickly learn even youre mothertongue.

""Regarding the Mudakoon competition - it'll be several stages, max duration probably around 20 hours.""
Does this mean the race will go on for 20hours from start to finish??
On "good old times" there was even 24h to 36h races on one stage. After 36h of race and finishing competition you think only about the bed. :wink: So nowerdays the 20h race is piece of cake.

How/when do you party then?? Before the race, or not at all :?
We will arrange you some afterparty when you awake after 24h spleep ;-) with youre hurting hands and legs.

As one old expression tells: "One picture can describe more than 1000 words" I give here some pictures from pervious "Mudakoon" competitions.
(I've been there 3times as Suzuki Jimny codriver and once LR90 pilot) :

Landy/Kristjan:
I was wrong. trc were talking about "the other" Kristjan......
So you like it in Estonia I assume :D Tell me, what makes you think Estonia is so special? Execept 4x4:s of course......... :D

1)There is lot of unsettled land to live as far from your neighbour as you want (and drive off road freely on your land)
2)We have Internet and telecommunication connection on reasonable price all most everywhere. (There was opportunity to follow 2007. year last competition LIVE from internet. On some competitions there, havelocal WIFI connections on site, to download check points cordinates and other information.)
3)We have lot of beautiful and nice girls here (some of them, love off road too)


Do you have many members in the LR-Club?

We have 38 official mebers, but al lot of non-mebers taking part to oure eavents. I calculate around 100 acative LR owners here in Estonia. And both numbers are growing.

Land Rover owners seem to bee even more fanatic than Geländewagenowners, it´s the same everywhere. Even in Tromsö where I live all of the offroaders(including myself) are members of the local Landy-Club just for the atmosphere surrounding the brittish pride and joy and the people that drive and most importantly, spend enormous amounts of time in the garage repairing little bits and bobbins on their beloved Land Rovers......
LR Club have friendly relationships with allmost all 4x4 and offroad Clubs in Estionia. We come together and have no hard feelings to other marques. But we are allways proud to oure cars, LR history and Bristish backround. We are going to celebrate soon oure club 10th and LR 60th birthday. As allweys everybody is welcome to oure party. (I have seen peole who have cahanged theire religon.... to Land Rover :lol: )
