In today’s video we will talk about this shield. It’s a shield custom made by a member of the Duster Trails community. He was kind enough to lend it to me to install it on my car and test it. He has used it for a while and I will install it and see how it covers the EGR system. As you can see it’s made from a piece of galvanized metal sheet, with a few rivets, very simple and efficient. Song Title: Ascence – About You As can be seen in the first test, I passed the car over a portion of dry and hardened soil and the shield had no problem, because the muffler has a flexible part that allows it to move a few centimeters. The main advantage of this shield is that it does not lower the guard to the ground like a classic shield of this type and decreases the risk of losing adhesion at the exits from climbs on the 30-35 degree ramp or of being suspended, this being pointed out by the colleagues from the Trails group through the tests they performed. The problem with the old shield was discovered by the Trails Group colleagues, on a trip to test the new duster, where on a seemingly easy offroad trail, a colleague’s car started to slide sideways, after 4 dusters had passed without problems just before he did. In the subsequent tests it was found that more attention is needed with this shield at the exits from steep climbs on the ramp with an inclination of 30-35 degrees. I have obtained this data from the Dacia Duster Trails & Technical Group of which I am a moderator. If you are not a member, I invite you to sign up for more information. I am going to take down the shield from the car and make an identical one and add holes for drainage. What do you think about this shield? Write your opinions in the comments. Bye Bye.
