Hi all,

While in central Australia last month I took the opportunity to get some slow motion footage of the 200 over some pretty bad corrugations. Amazing to see just how much movement they generate over the vehicle. Very impressed with how much is absorbed by the body mounts. The 200 is so much smoother over them than anything else I've driven.

Check out the video....

G'day, interesting footage. What tyre pressures did you have when the footage was taken? Would be interesting to see super slow mo of various tyre pressures for the same speed over the same section. Thanks.

Tyre pressures were about 25psi in the 'Cruiser and 22psi in the trailer. Yes, would be interesting to see the effect of different pressures, but it's a bit far away to pop back and give it a try!

I guess an ad for Toyota would say it is the best riding vehicle over corrugations - maybe they should drive a Disco 4 and see how a proper suspension can handle them.

Better still make a vid comparing the different suspension systems over the same ground.

I like the idea of the video of the different suspension types. Also aftermarket and standard etc. Logistical nightmare, but would be interesting.

Yes, it's a 'Cruiser, and I'm generally happy with it (except for dust sealing, but that's another story). Hardly an ad though. I paid for it, and Toyota don't look after me in any way. I've had one Land Cruiser before, and before that 2 Patrols. And a Suzuki in my younger years....

Yes, it would be interesting to compare different systems. 4-wheel independent would probably perform better on corrugations, but the downside is massively reduced travel, which isn't something I'd appreciate. And, sorry to say, I've had enough friends with various Land Rovers over the years for me not to buy one myself!

I did not see it as an ad for Toyota, but rather as a fascinating slow mo on how corrugations can affect the suspension. As has been said it would be great to see other vehicles and at different speeds.

Good video, but I don't know if I buy the body moving and not the bull bar. Isn't the aerial wobbling because the bullbar is moving ? Sure looks like a bullbar wobble to me ! Good question on tyre pressure, tyres can absorb a huge amount of corrugations. I must check the video again ! Cheers.

Probably needed to be worded a bit better. The bulbar is shaking because the chassis is, but it's not noticeably moving relative to the chassis. When you watch it, look at the chassis/bash plate relative to the bullbar. But the body is certainly moving relative to the chassis.

Can understand the distance etc, but maybe next time................

The slowmo camera is actually just an iPhone 6, mounted to a tripod. It does 240fps at 720p. You need good light levels though. Then conform it to 25fps in something like Apple Cinema Tools or Adobe Premiere Pro so you can see it in slow motion.

Thanks , I have a couple of GoPro's and a Panasonic video camera ,
I have a couple of attachment points under my vehicle , might have to see what I can do .
