I went muddin in my scort GT back when puddles were abundant offroad! I didn't get stuck and I drove through puddles that were coming up to the top of the bumper, I made a snorkle so I didn't suck water! my buddy also followed me in his lifted jeep to push me if I hydrolocked lol, never happened and I had a blast!
someone told me I couldn't mud in my scort, so I did!
Took the tracer mudding once, Got stuck about halfways down the road because of some big truck ruts. A cop came bitched me out then asked me how the hell did I make it that far. Luckily the guy that came in pulled us out in his mudding truck had a slednecks sticker and the cops liked slednecks. But everyone was amazed how far I made it lol
^ small cars + big ruts don't mix well at all :lol: I remember last march i took the escort with snow tires and followed my buddy in his ford ranger up some dirt(mud lol) roads and he was suprised i was able to make it all theway. i think these cars do alright in the mud is because they are so light.
yeah I was amazed myself at how far I could make it, but deep ruts=no no lol, scraped the bottom pretty bad on some high rut mounds but still man these cars being FWD and light works for them! if you raised it up about 2 more inches it'd be hard to stop unless you hit a big mound or hill.
great stories guys! fun times!
here is a pic of my mudding fun with my bud and his jeep, I'm in the jean jacket pointing at my scort obviously!
yeah my engine bay is still somewhat dirty looking but I don't care, when I pull the head off again I'll clean the firewall up and brake booster etc.
I had just finished my exhaust a few days earlier, polished it up nice, went mudding, it looked like mud so I repolished it and the oil pan got messed up too, so I'm still working on the dirt damages months later ha ha, course I went through puddles that were DEEP ha ha, I've got a good trans and new clutch so no more of that for meh! that is when I made it run and drive OK and I just got it through emissions so I was celebrating by kicking the tar outta it. it was a one time, 2, 3, 4, 5 time thing no more ha ha. that's what the green jeep is for which now it's a yellow jeep and very nice! 8.5 inch lift that's only a 3 inch lift in that pic of my car and his jeep, oh yes!
keep em rolling guys whether it be on dirt, ice, pavement, water heck keep em rollin!
