Default Mcube - 2012

Mod Note : Please continue the discussion in the MCube 2012 Event Report Thread (MCube 2012, pics and report)

Summer is here, which means that the monsoons can't be far behind...

Just as the Met department starts planning for the arrival of monsoons, the BAAPs (consortium of usual suspects from Bombay, Alibag and Pune ) have started planning for Maha Monsoon Madness (MCUBE 2012), the annual gathering of offroaders around Mumbai.

So please pencil in your calendars for the weekend of July 6-7 (Friday - Saturday).

Apply for those leaves, look up at the sky and appease the rain gods, but more importantly tell Gopal, Janniah, Mhd Ali, Razak, Bimesh (insert favorite local mechanic here) that your jeeps/gypsys must be ready by then.

More details will unveil as we firm out the specifics, but for now we are off to find THAT trail!


And if the thought of meeting such wonderful people does not motivate you, then here is some terrain that surely will...

Thanks Genesis for the heads up!

Will warn Prabhu and the rest of the Hyd gang. We should be there.

All the best for the event.

Will a lifted Endy with 32" MTs make it through the trail? Haven't got the tyres yet but have been promised them in the next 2 months. Will probably get a rear locker in the meantime though. once I get my axle and spline count figured out.

Thanks Genesis for the update.
I'll join in again as a passenger, my own 4X4 is still years away :(

An Endy, lifted or not is just too long a vehicle to make it through most hilly trails in this part of town. They are quite narrow and twisty.

I would advise using it to drive from Chenna in comfort and then hopping into another vehicle.

This is excellent news, I was there last year at the event and had a great time. I wanted to know if I can bring my lifted Range Rover Classic with 32" MT tyres? She isn't quite as long as the endy, if not I can always bring my 550. Really looking forward to this!!

Aditya,

Hyderabad Jeepers just love this terrain in monsoon, you can expect atleast 15 from here. Rest 20 spots will fill up in a hurry, so don't delay once the announcements are made. Hope to see your beast this time.

Thanks for the heads up Genesis. Will this be contiguous with the AKC?
