Thank you, yes I did feel the endeavour slip down.

This was a fun event though most of the time we were waiting for the vehicles up ahead to move, at one point i guess we stood at one place for over an hour when a Thar had a flat.

The offroaders were trying to jack up the thar in all that slush which was a no brainer since the jack will NOT lift up the thar on loose soil, we recommended the use of a Hi-Lift jack which we borrowed from Monish (memo_45m) and finally the flat was fixed and we moved on with the rest of the event.

unfortunately I did not compete in the slush fest which was the last part of the event since I was running the endeavour on worn out tie rods, this I found out after the excessive steering wobble during the event.

Drove down to bangalore the same way and had them replaced here at Ford.
