When you’re stuck in a mud pit, it’s the winch that counts, whatever the equipment on your car is. There’s a lot of high quality winches on the market.

Most of them work really nice on the average weekend-offroader. But the price can sometimes be a problem.

This is why Traction4x4 from Italy is offering high quality, great performance XT Automotive winches for a great price.

Wild Boar Valley Challenge 2015

Only the strongest will finish the competition. Do not forget, off roading can be very selective.
The survival of the fittest is a rule here. With more than 100 km of roadbook each day, you’ll have plenty of time to present yourself at the Wild Boar Valley Challenge.

The ORGA from the “Kamo Oko Vidi” off road club emphasize each year that this is not a competition where your vehicle will prevail. You will have to use your skills along with your vehicle. Perfect cooperation of team members and a bit of luck – will make you a winner of the Wild Boar Valley Challenge.

Dasall Performance lights

Here’s what Alex has to say about Dasall performance lights:
“Dasall underwent one of the toughest real world tests at King of Wales 2015 and performed flawlessly. There was a fallen tree across the course that we pushed out of the way with our roof line.

I was expecting this to bring the end to our Dasall Lights.
They not only survived unscathed but continued to work perfectly thereafter.”

COMEUP Blazer competition winch!

In my quest for a new fast, strong and lightweight winch I could write about, I found a couple that advertised themselves as competition winches. Label aside, there’s a lot of stuff on the market, with the majority not even worth mentioning. BUT, Comeup Blazer competition winch got my attention!

Unfortunately, in winch universe, terms “competition” and “lightweight” don’t fit together. Weight savings pays back in better gas mileage and being less nose heavy so the front/rear vehicle balance is better. But when buying a competition winch, is better gas mileage something we should worry about? This isn’t really debateable since the obvious answer is no.
