    Two observations from that video that I round interesting. Firstly the claim from the Land Rover rep that the new Defender is 10 times as rigid as the old ladder chassis, really ? 10 times ? Secondly there didn't seem to be much wheel travel at all with a heavy reliance on traction control to get through the course, I wonder if this will be a problem in term of body fatigue over the years with it being a bit too rigid and frequently lifting wheels then slamming down as the weight transfers.

    I'm really trying to like this model but am struggling. I hope they've got it right.
