Second part: Traction Control Test on soft sand ,,
So I was so excited to put this under the test to see how the Commander would perform without the Traction Control and how much the Traction Control is effective. And I went on a quick sand dunes trip with my friend who has a well prepared Toyota Fortuner.
First I turned the Traction Control Off and went on a quick test and put the two wheels on one side into very soft sand on a small dune wall ,,,,, see how the commander was digged in !! ,, I have never managed to get it digged in that way.
While in there I put the fuse back, and retired to move, and surprisingly it moved on !! and got itself out of the dune wall, but unfortunately due to low ground clearance I got stuck just couple of meters away from the dune wall (bottomed down) and had to be pulled out.
That was the first test,,
Second Test describes it self,,,,, enjoy the movie
I was really impressed by that.
My friend has diff lockers in both differentials (one from factory and one ARB air-locker), and in this testing trip we drove about 30 miles in Sand dunes and we concluded that both trucks did almost the same from 4WD system point of view, but the Commander has a very low ground clearance
which got it stuck once (other than the test one) and pulled out.
Addition, this was added in reply # 26 in page 3
I managed to go back from that spot with Traction Control ON.
