#REDIRECT [[Offroad driving]]

I want to create an article about offroad driving. As I have no personal experience (yet) I decided to do this in my sandbox. Feel free to edit! And: If you think you have enough knowledge to assure at least basic quality of the article move it to [[Offroad driving]].

* Gravel

* Corrugation: On gravel roads sooner or later corrugation will build up. This will result in shaking if you drive more than about 20 km/h. At a much higher speed (80 km/h) it will get better, as the car "jumps" from wave to wave.
+
* River: Carefully walk through to see how deep it is before. If the engine block is hit by the water it will be cooled down very quickly, this might result in cracks.
+
* Sand: If you get stuck do not try to accelerate as this will only dig you more into the sand. Try driving backwars instead.
+
* Mud
+
* Snow
