  • Landcruiser 200 to top 100K

    Honestly if it cost me that much I would be too scared to fart in it let alone take it offroad!

          What about this new suspension it's got. some sort of pneumatic stuff. Not sure how the die hard crusier boys are going to make of that.

            Brett, are you talking about the kinetic dynamic suspension system (KDSS) or active height control (AHC)? If the former then I think it is quite a clever system (an Aussie developed concept by the way). It controls the anti-roll bars hydraulically to give good on-road roll control and very low roll stiffness off-road (the anti-roll bars are effectively disconnected off road) for good flex.

            The AHC was a bit of a disappointment on the 100 series because it could not maintain ride height at the high setting when laden. I am not sure how different the new system is (the old one used hydro-pneumatic shocks, I think).

              The KDSS (or very simiar) has been around for a while. It was call ACE on the Landrover Discovery since 1999. It is a fantastic idea and worked well. But the way the Paj suspension is set up it would never need it.
              thanks,

                Yes the ACE is a similar concept, but the KDSS is a level cleverer.

                Why do you say that the Paj's suspension would not benefit from such a system?

                  I'm sure the system is quite advanced and probably works quite well but most toyota/nissan types seem to have their hearts set on live axles and coils springs and diff locks. As soon as you mention electronics or traction control devices all I hear is it's no good and what if it breaks out in the bush etc.....Now it seems Toyota is moving into the 21st century I just wonder what the live axle no electrics people will have to say about it now that it wears a Toyota badge

                    Mitsubishis Pajero evolution have won dakars already years ago whit same kind of kinetic suspension system. I dont know why it havent came for normal pajero yet.
