At the tail on the first day. You can hear Vipin(Marshal) Saying to the tractor team to wind up this jeep will climb. It did only because of the Front&rear LSD and the MT tyre at this stage.

Superb videos guys, it was just awesome trail i guess. Gypsy coming down i dont think its the brakes, at least from the sound. Maybe its an led park lights? LC was composed, just with engine breaking going down smooth.

In the video it looks like a rock threw the back of the Jeep to the right, and when it came to stand still the drive din't attempt to realign instead tried moving forward but the steering correction did not help and the Jeep tilted over.... I may be wrong we can hardly figure out what had actually happened seeing a video.....
