When it’s time to kick back and relax after a good weekend of four-wheeling, there’s nothing like zoning out and watching some sick off-roading like you’ll see in the above video. Detailing the highly varied and rather technical terrain of the Murchison Off-Road Adventure Park in Kalbarri, Western Australia, the footage entails the journeys of four mean little 4x4s and their drivers as they negotiate all that this section of outback has to offer.
As our host Ronny Dahl explains, Murchison Off-Road Adventure Park (abbreviated as MOA) has “heaps of tracks” to choose from, ranging from mud bogs to hill climbs to swaths of wide open dirt. The men start the day off at the Widow Maker track, with Toyota Land Cruisers and Nissan Patrols flexing as they crawl up and down a few imposing boulders.
As diesel motor vehicles, all four of these trucks have torque on their side to help them get up and over various obstacles. Also lending a helping hand are BFG Mud Terrains (aired down, of course), lift kits, and snorkels for navigating the wetter sections of trail.
Up next is the aptly-titled “Big Balls Ridge,” which requires speeding up a rutted-out trail and handling a nasty bounce at the top to surmount. A couple of the guys go fast and loud all the way up, and pay for it in bruises, while the other two take it nice and easy, and put the lockers to work getting traction on all fours to get out of the silt.
Keep in mind this is all just the first seven-minutes of this 35-minute video. We won’t go into laborious detail and spoil all the fun here, so watch the rest to see what happened to the guys as they took on more brutal courses with titles like the Chuck Norris Track, Septic Sludge, and Dingo Track.
