Viji,
Last year, I went with AT to both AKC and EXAMM, passed in AKC, but failed in EXAMM. Hyderabad boys had brought MT tyres along with them and put it up on the day of the event. Needless to say that they had many helpers with them for each tyre.

AT AND your skills will do parts of the trail. But there will be slushy slimy climbs (depends on the rain) which may be difficult (your lockers will help but not be enough)

If it rains heavily then all bets are off. And given our prayers that it should rain, MT would be recommended and we can help you change the tyres!

Could you not ship them on a BUS from Bangalore?

BTW I regularly do 90 degree turns when I brake on my NDMS with a Re 1 area contact patch

Maybe Viji can sponsor a "Who changes a tyre the fastest" competition and offer some goodies from his stable as prizes

Guaranteed results.

Viji Sir, i have enough Experience of turning the other way with NDMS on my CJ, just like Soumya With MT's on my 550, well, the feeling is more secure but surely not as that in ATs. I remember DKG also ferrying his tractor tyres (Speedway i think) in his CJ.
If you want to carry your MTs along, im sure 3 guys could be found amongst us to change your three tyres...the 4th being handled by you

Dear Tejas, Soumya and all - although I am raring to come (minus my baby 521 this time), I don't think my doctor will allow me as I was on medical leave for some time. I "very casually whiffed" my intentions to attend, to my better half yesterday evening. I saw thick smoke coming out of both ears, a surefire recipe to get right royally hammered! Best of luck guys and enjoy! I'll see if I could drive down at least to the start point.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Sir! Here is a solution:

Wake up in the morning. Put on a sparkling white shirt, dress trousers, start up the trusty old fiat and tell your better half that you are going for a Fiat Classic Car Club drive to Lonvala.
Once you are at Vashi, call us and we will tell you where to divert.

Your Parsi Colony bawa crew (some of whom are coming) will have to be sworn to silence or suitably bribed with spare parts!

Dear Soumya - good one I say! . Parsi Colony Bawa Crew, are you listening?

There is this irresistible urge to move one of the transfer case levers down, the other one up and then enjoy the experience of the "mountain-goating" abilities of JKC838 (I envy you) and other similar vehicles. I guess this urge in us to off-road is permanent. Nothing gives me more joy. It can never be eroded!

Best regards,

Sir Behram,

Half the guys are from Mumbai, hence getting there is no problem.
If the desire to drive at the venue persists, you have the Lynx (with a butter smooth clutch now) and many other Jeeps.

'Where there's a Jeep there's a way'.

Missed you last year, hope to see you this year.
Regards,
