T2's are much more capable off road than the T3! I have owned 5 T2's previous to my T3 and I can say without a doubt T2's handle gravel, sand and all sorts of "off the beaten track" surfaces much better than the T3. My T3 breaks traction so easily, there is no way I would consider taking it on the beach like I used to take my T2. I was towing my trailer and log splitter up an incline in a paddock and it took me four attempts to get up. The t2's I beam setup seems to distribute the weight better allowing it to keep traction. Anyone else had this experience?
