Club Day at Torq 4WD at Hillcrest - December 8 2012 - hekarewe - 17-12-2011

Hi guys there is a relativaly new 4wd shop open ion hillcrest. 2 brothers are running it in the spare time at the moment until they build it up big enough to give up their day jobs and do it full time.

what they have is an on line shop and fully equip work shop to do all of their fitting in.

i have personnelly met them and introduced them to the members of the nissan patrol forum and was wondering if the members from river city would like to meet them???? maybe i could organise a presentation from them at one of our meetings or see if we can have a meeting at their work shop and have them do the presentation their

just thought i would throw this out there before i mention it to them

I have just sent a quote request for a long range tank, also asked about getting them to a meeting or us to the workshop one weekend, will see how that goes.

Thanks for placing this on the forum, this is what the forum is all about!

So um :roll:

We don't currently have a position for this but I never try to let an opportunity pass by Wink

side note:
I was speaking to Glenn Hadden (Hasbeen) from Roo Systems at this years 4WD show, he indicated that a visit to our club could be organised by him..
Given that he is also a 4WD Action DVD man it could be a good draw card for the meeting, I may also have a few others, you are welcome to take the organising of this well and truly off my hands.... please :oops:

Re: new 4wd shop in hill crest - daggy - 16-09-2012

At this moment, we River City will have a Saturday afternoon with the boys from Torq 4x4 in November. Date to be decided upon. As it goes for them Dave and Murray are both working the shop fulltime and open Monday to Friday and Saturday morning. They are in the final stages of their new showroom.

What we have planned thus far is:
Lunch (BBQ) provided by Torq 4X4.
A presentation of what they have to offer.
A run down on what you should and don't really need, but may want to have for extended trips like the cape.
The offer to put a couple of vehicles on the hoist and show you what you should be looking at/doing for pre trip/on trip/ and post trip preparation.
A flex ramp for those that want to see what they've got.

Any other suggestions that you want to make. It will be a great afternoon with a couple of great blokes that are like us 4 wheel drivers. And they understand that we all have a budget.

This will not be a high pressure sales pitch. I have actually walked in there to buy something and been told that I don't really need it and left with nothing.

Cool let us all know the dates soon as possible,
Just hope i will not be working although we usually finish around 2pm Saturdays..


Re: Club Day at Torq 4WD at Hillcrest in November - daggy - 19-09-2012

Apologies to Adrian, I changed the title of the post to better reflect what we are going to do with Torq4WD in November. Date to be set.

Sounds very interesting - would be keen for a look.


Re: Club Day at Torq 4WD at Hillcrest in November - daggy - 12-10-2012

We did set a date for this in November, but we have the track work at Sundown and clean up on Moreton that same weekend. Will move it to early December or late January, whatever happens it will happen, Dave and Murray are keen to get us down there and show us what they can offer.
