Great Endeavour Rally

The Great Endeavour Rally was always on our buckets list and we did our first in 2014. If you like driving in the dirt through some of the most incredible parts of the Australian Outback, then this is for you.

This years is double the time and distance and travels from Ipswich to Uluru and back to Stanthorpe. 8000 kilometres in 18 days on some of the worst tracks and roads imaginable. This takes its toll on suspension, which one reason we are so pleased to have EFS on board as a sponsor. We already had EFS suspension on the car and found it gave us outstanding stability and comfort. Given our kit is now more than 5 years old we are refreshing the springs and shock absorbers as a precaution.

The other reason we are grateful to EFS is they have provided items for us to auction during the Endeavour rally to raise funds. This is the primary reason for doing the journey, as it is the major fundraiser completed by the Endeavour foundation. The Endeavour Foundation support people with a disability through employment, training, education, accommodation services, respite, and recreation and lifestyle options in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.

Each year the funds raised from the Great Endeavour Rally have benefited individuals and regional communities, improved support options, and achieved better outcomes so that people with a disability have greater opportunities for independence, choice, control, and inclusion. Last year's QLD Rally raised over $430,000 and over 300 people with a disability have benefitted.

Thanks to James and the Team at EFS for their incredible support for this great cause.

Ontrack Automotive 4x4 Australia Hilux Fit Out

Phil from Ontrack Automotive started out in business in 1992, but began his time as a Mechanic when he was only 15 years old.  
Now he has 35 years' experience working in the Automotive Industry.

Over the years he has specialised in LP Gas conversions and automotive repairs to all makes and models of vehicles. In the year
2000 he changed his business name to Ontrack Automotive to attract the 4wd customers.

Phil and his family spent a lot of time touring the Western Australia back in 1990 and worked their way up the WA coast, living and
working in Port Hedland. This is where he had to repair a lot of things instead of changing out parts. This gave him a great knowledge
of how mechanical parts worked and how to get out of a tight situation.

“4wds are my passion, I have worked for Nissan dealers in WA and NT, returning to Vic and starting out on my own business. Over the last
8 years we have been a distributor for EFS Suspension building our business up into a large supplier & fitment of EFS components.” Phil from Ontrack Automotive

Phil keeps in stock most suspension parts to suit late model 4wd vehicles and he also specialises in GVM upgrades and 4wd accessories.

So if you’re ever in the Ferntree Gully area, drop in and see Phil and the team at Ontrack Automotive - your EFS 4wd Suspension specialist.

You can’t put a price on you and your family’s safety when you’re heading off to your Easter destination

All 4 Adventure Best Bogs

 1. Mechanical

 mechanical

  Whether you do it yourself or book it into a mechanic, a service and a check over of your vehicle is always paramount before heading off on a big trip.

2. Storage

storage 

Do you have enough room for the kids bikes, clothes, food, kitchen sink etc and is everything secured?

3. Towing

towing 

 Does your vehicle confidently tow the caravan/camper trailer/boat etc and when was the last time you had the brakes checked and the bearings serviced?  Don't be that person stuck on the side of the road waiting for the spare parts shop to open.

4. Accessories

accesories 

 Are your accessories up to scratch? Does your winch work, is your wiring to the fridge working? Most importantly, is your suspension going to be able to carry the load and passengers safely?

5. Weight

 weight

How loaded is your vehicle, do you know your vehicles GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass)?

6. Tyres

 wheels

 Are your tyres roadworthy or require replacing and most importantly, do you have a spare tyres and is it up to scratch?

7.  Fuel

fuel 

Can you store enough fuel to get you where you're going? Is a long range tank a good idea or jerry cans of fuel.

 8.  Spares and “just in case items”

tools 

Always bring some tools, spanners, socket set, screw drivers, a fist full of zip ties, spare fan belts, hose clamps and recovery equipment if you plan for a bit of off road adventure.  Also joining a breakdown service can be a money and time saver in the long run.

 9. Driver Fatigue

 rest

Don’t forget to swap drivers, have a break every few hours and plan to change over drivers at certain towns/landmarks.  Getting there safely is better than not getting there at all.

10. Fun

Have a happy Easter!!!!

STANDARD LANDCRUISER SHOCK
vs EFS SHOCK

shockcomparison

EFS offer a complete range of suspension parts for your Toyota LandCruiser. Whether it be an old 40 Series or the most recent 200 Series, EFS has a lift kit for the complete range of Toyota LandCruisers available Australia wide.

The standard suspension on a LandCruiser is great for general duties but after a few years in service it becomes tired and an up grade is immanent, especially when you have increased its load with bull bars, winches, canopies, builders equipment etc.

When upgrading to EFS suspension you will notice that the shocks are a lot larger than standard that's because EFS shocks have increased bore sizes and increased oil volumes to cope with higher temperatures.

Do you carry a large amount of weight?

Do you tow heavy equipment?

Do you like flexing it up off road?

Now EFS not only offers lift kits for your LandCruiser but also an array of different load carrying kits to suit your specific vehicle needs.
