The 4wd TV sticker is coming off the disco

Tread lightly, keep it safe, play hard is what they advertise at the start of the show.

Why promote excessive lifts, hoons wrecking tracks and unroadworthy mods.

I know they are trying to make the show reach a large audience but it's not good advertising for our hobby I dont think.

Did he really, that might mean I wont have to scull drag him out of the river next time.

No I havnt recieved my steering protector yet, I will give him a chance to come back down to cranny next week when I will have some decent coffee.

He did have 2 cups of tea and it was Dilmah, not cheap crap lol.

There was Beer in the fridge as usuall but he didnt even look so he misses out.

That may be a common but perhaps incorrect interpretation as all of those comments fly in the face of their motto. Playing hard doesn't necessarily have to contradict treading lightly or keeping it safe although it is all quite subjective.

You may not get the show Slunnie, they showed some guys ripping up tracks and comenting on how much fun it looks, they constantly do illegal mods to road going vehicals and promote what should basically be comp trucks driving in the bush.

It's fine to say play hard if you are talking about the comp scene that they cover but I dont support hooning and it shouldnt be promoted on a now nationally broadcast show.
