If you know anything about the Balfour Track then you would know that under all that water is a pretty firm base and your less likely to chop that up than the bypass. Most of them will drive through the water quicker to stop as much water ingress into the cabin. So in my eyes they did the right thing .
Maybe we should stop all videos being produced nowadays on 4wds and there trips as it seems to be once one spins a wheel on camera you are labelled. I can honestly say there wouldn't be too many people on this board that have driven through a muddy rut and not made a splash or had wheelspin happen....cut a new track around it and film it for everyone to see.
Then see how much crap you cop.

While that's a valid and good argument. The last 4wd action dvd I ever watched (maybe 18 months or so ago) had an outtake in the credits of a camera crew member on the edge of a puddle, wet and complaining while the presenter laughed and said 'well you told me to give it the berries'. I remember this quite clearly as, due to the size of said puddle, I couldn't understand why this was done other than only for the point of looking good.

4wd action need to remember who makes up their target audience. Once young/inexperienced drivers see this, it is likely they will head out and try and re-enact it. This unfortunately is a contributor to track deterioration and the potential resulting closure.
