OFF ROAD DRIVING TIPS
When talking about Off road driving especially in Malaysia's rain forest, we won't escape to riding through a deep mud or sand. Here are some tips that may useful for us:
  • Observe all rules and regulations pertaining to the use of public land.
  • Avoid areas which are easily damaged such as swamps and vegetated sand dunes.
  • Carry out all the rubbish you brought in.
  • Always ask permission before entering private land.
  • Leave gates as you find them.
  • Before riding through deep mud or sand, deflate your tires slightly to increase the tire’s footprint and provide better traction. Deflated tires will decrease your ground clearance though. Remember to re-inflate your tires before going on-road again.
  • Use a steady momentum to carry you through. Keep your speed up and use higher gears. Don't spin your tires, and don't stop till you're out of the deep mud or sand. If your wheels start to spin, ease off the throttle just a bit and allow the tires to slow down and regain traction.
  • If you lose traction and the vehicle is barely moving, turn the steering wheel quickly from side to side in short strokes (only 1/8th turn) to allow the front tire walls to find extra grip.
  • If muddy conditions force you to drive in the ruts, know where your front wheels are pointed at all times. Your vehicle will follow the ruts, even with the wheels turned to the right or left.
  • If you encounter a dry spot with the wheels turned, then the front wheels can regain traction and suddenly throw the vehicle out of the ruts, resulting in a loss of control and possible damage.
 MODIFICATION FOR OFF ROAD 4WD
There are a few modification to be done on your 4WD before go off-roading (for mild Off-road). While many off-road vehicles can green land or "two track" most unpaved roads, the desire of many off-roading enthusiasts is to attempt much more challenging terrain. The following listings show the modifications that are done and why:

Vehicle Lifts

A vehicle lift is when the normal height of a vehicle is lifted to increase the amount of clearance between the ground and the bottom of the body or frame of the vehicle. There are numerous types of vehicle lifts:

Body Lift: A simple and cheap way to lift a vehicle that has a body on frame design such as a pickup truck or some SUVs. A body lift consists of larger spacers that replace the normal mounting points of the vehicle's body on its frame. These typically are between 1 - 4 inches. Any more than four inches (102 mm) will create a less sturdy set up. Body lifts are not possible on vehicles with a "Uni-body" construction. Uni-body vehicles have the frame formed into the body, such as on a Jeep Cherokee.







Suspension lift: A suspension lift is when modifications are done to the 
vehicle's springs, shocks, controlling arms and steering linkage. In this 
case small or short pieces of the suspension are replaced with longer or 
larger items of similar construction. Lifting a vehicle changes its driving 
dynamics and a suspension lift adds to the vehicle's handling capabilities 
in relation to the increased height.

 FUEL EFFICIENCY TIPS
Increases in the price of gas, accompany the increase in the number of fuel-saving scams.

Continuous increase in the price of gas is common news nowadays. This is accompanied by an upsurge in advertising exposures for “gas saving” gadgets. These products attract potential buyers searching for methods to maximize fuel efficiency.

There are important procedures car owners can take in consideration to improve gas mileage. According to the Better Business Bureau, the public should be critical in assessing products that claim gas saving features for vehicle devices or additives for gas and oil.


There are products that feature gas-saving features that really work. In addition to that, consumers could be facing a major engine trouble or a nullified creator’s warranty by putting devices to the Engine. Consumers should be wary of these specific advertising slogans: “20 percent fuel efficiency improvement”

A hundred or more devices that feature gas-saving qualities are proven untrue by the Environmental Protection Agency. Worse, there are so-called “gas-saving” devices that may cause a harmful effect to a vehicle’s engine.


Another side effect is more smoke emissions. Examples of these devices are Engine Modifiers, Additives, Fuel Line Gadgets, Liquid Injection, Vapor and Air Release Devices and a lot more.

Consumer testimonials are common in fuel saving ads. Assuming these testimonials are not made up, few consumers test the fuel consumption of their vehicle before putting on the gadget. Therefore, an objective comparison of the fuel consumption before and after the product was added will not be attained.


The following are practical tips to conserve gas:
Efficient driving

Just drive reasonably within the speed limit. Remember that speeds of more than 60 miles per hour increase fuel consumption.
Do not do sudden starts, accelerations and stops.

Acceleration should be done gradually. The gas pedal should not be stepped on more than one fourth of the way down. This will allow the engine to function most efficiently. Gas conservation could reach up to 5 percent if sudden stops, jerks and accelerations are avoided.
Make use of gears for overdrive and cruise control as needed. Fuel efficiency is attained when moving on the highway
.

Windows should be closed on highways. Windows that are open can create air drag that can decrease the fuel consumption by 10%.

Take out unnecessary baggage. The trunk should be kept clean, any gadget, tools or loads that are not needed should be taken out. 100 pounds of extra baggage can affect fuel economy by two percent.

The car should always be maintained. The engine should be given a regular tune up, the tires should always have the right air pressure and efficiently aligned, the oil should be changed when needed and air filters replaced regularly. Clogged filters can affect gas consumption adversely by up to ten percent.
Turn off the engine whenever there is an opportunity. Idle engine wastes fuel. There are instances where the engine could be turned off; stopping for gas, waiting for someone, changing tire pressure, caught in traffic and a lot more.

Engine warm-up fuel conservation tips:
Lengthy warming up of the engine should be avoided. 30 to 45 seconds should be enough time. Check if the automatic check is removed after warming up the engine. This is usually stuck which could usually cause poor gas and air combination.

Do not rev the engine. This is usually done before turning off the engine. This causes unnecessary fuel loss and also washes the oil within the cylinder walls. As an effect, there is air pressure loss and consequently fuel loss as well.


 WINCH CHALLENGE
This is the most recent, and usually the most difficult, form of course trialling. Again, a course is laid out with a series of gates and vehicles must complete as many gates in a course as possible. However, these events take place on very difficult terrain- difficult to the extent that vehicles are not expected to be able to complete the course without the use of a recovery winch.

Winching is a definite skill in itself, aside from off-road driving, and brings elements of team-playing into the trial, as a successful (and safe) vehicle recovery needs at least 2 people to complete. Some trials are for teams of 2 or 3 vehicles, each helping to recover the others through obstacles. A Winch Challenge may extend to other off-road driving skills, such as building a log bridge to cross a river.











SAFE WINCHING TECHNIQUES
Every winching situation has a potential for personal injury. In order to minimize that risk, it is important that the user are being guided, familiarise, think safety before using the winch.


The basic training is a guide which provides understanding proper winching technique. It is because every winching situation is different, constant judgment and consistent focus on safety is of great importance.

* Training Syllabus
* Winch design and mechanism
* How the winch works
* How to choose a winch
* Winch Installation
* Winch accessories
* Winching hand signals
* DO's and don'ts
* Before pulling
* During pulling

                                   * Maintenance


 WHAT IS 4WD SYSTEM
The main component that differentiate the 2WD (normal vehicles) and 4WD is on their transmission system or an automotive drive system in which mechanical power is transmitted from the drive shaft to all four wheels.

Normal vehicles only powered by main gear transmission box as compared with 4WD vehicle is also attached additional gear box or transfer case / gear which usually located behind the gear transmission box.

Transfer case main function is as a housing for drive shaft / propeller shaft to move the wheel forward and backward. Transfer case box possess 2 additional set ratio gear that are high (4 High / 4H) and low (4 Low / 4L).

When you choose a low gear ratio that mean you are doubling the torque to the wheel. Low torque circle with the mechanical transmission system enable all four wheel advantage to climb or to carry heavy load. Please remember that with 4 Low gear ratio does not give you wheel grasp but only to supply more torque for your wheel.

There are two type of 4 wheel system that is full time 4WD and part time 4WD.

Mitsubishi Pajero is classified as a part time 4WD and this type of 4WD become more popular in Malaysia.

When to use 4H:

* for traction when the area isn't steep
* when stuck in sand
* extremely slippery conditions
* snow
* ice
* rocky, gravel roads
* gullies
* extremely muddy areas
* ridges

Low Range 4WD
4L is for creeping along at slow speeds. It reduces the strain on your vehicle, just remember to stay below 25mph in low range. While it does not provide more traction, it does provide 2-3 times more torque at about 1/2 or 1/3 of the speeds in high range. Low range gear ratios are approximately half that of high range.

When to use 4L:
* on wet, slippery surfaces
* passing through sandy areas
* on rough trails
* through shallow water
* rock-climbing
* climbing steep hills
* through mud
* descending steep hills


     Additional Tips:
  • Don't change gears in the middle of a water crossing, going up or down hills, or in sand dunes.
  • Be prepared: Engage low-range 4WD before you need it.
  • Don't operate 4WD on hard dry surfaces.
  • When in doubt, use a lower gear!
