Hi Dhruv

Coming weekend is Diwali and I am not sure whether we will be having a meet on coming Sat/Sun. To be very honest, except for driving on the main sandy tracks, most of the obstacles will not be possible to do in the cars you have mentioned unless the Duster you mentioned is an AWD.

For upcoming meets, please keep an eye on this thread, we have a couple of places in Noida as well where we will possibly meet soon. You could join us there as well.

Hi Folks

We plan to have our next OTR on Sunday Nov 27, in Noida and for now we have following confirmations for the OTR. If anyone else wants to join, please let us know.
  • Myself - Toyota Fortuner
  • .anshuman - XUV 500 AWD
  • rhandle - New Ford Endeavour
  • roy_libran - Mahindra Scorpio 4x4
  • sourabhzen - Safari Storme 4x4
  • Turbanator - Isuzu V-Cross
  • A non-TBHP member with old gen Ford Endeavour 4x4 AT

Location:
28.536344, 77.330558

On the banks of River Yamuna.

Tentative Time: 8 AM, Gurgaon folks can leave in a convoy and I will join them on route to Noida.

Apart from this, we have had a few outings during past weeks which went undocumented. So here are a few pics to boot.

sourabhzen's brand new Storme 4x4, at our meeting/briefing point on GFR. My Fortuner and .anshuman's XUV in the background.

The line for that particular OTR, old gen Endeavour belongs to a non-TBHP member who connected with us via YouTube.

Following pics are from another day when after finishing our OTR, I & .anshuman went onto exploration in nearby Aravali jungles.

On a off-beat path!

Spotted some wildlife too!

No matter what NGT enforces in NCR, how would they prevent things like this? A big pile of garbage from city brought deep into the jungle, dumped and set to fire! Isn't this what we call "Diye ke neeche Andhera"!

Yesterday's outing in Noida was great fun. We had a interesting lineup of SUV's. Our new entrant was Isuzu V-Cross.

Delhi NCR / Gurgaon Offroad Meets-dsc00502.jpg
The lineup of SUV's. That includes Isuzu V-Cross, Mahindra XUV-500 AWD, Toyota Fortuner 4x4, New Ford Endeavour 3.2 Titanium 4x4, old Ford Endeavour 3.0 AT 4x4 and Tata Safari Storme 400 4x4.

Lining up the V-Cross for an obstacle, others watching.

Delhi NCR / Gurgaon Offroad Meets-dsc00509.jpg
The tyre on V-Cross started leaking AIR, figuring out how to replace with a spare.

Delhi NCR / Gurgaon Offroad Meets-dsc00510.jpg
Few minutes later, we managed successfully without an Owner's manual. I remembered a few things from Team-BHP official review, that helped.

Delhi NCR / Gurgaon Offroad Meets-dsc00511.jpg
Isuzu resting after a difficult climb, in stock form the long wheelbase, large overhangs and open diffs play a spoilsport.

Delhi NCR / Gurgaon Offroad Meets-dsc00512.jpg
I even managed to get the new Endeavour stuck, and got it recovered using V-Cross(planned it with XUV actually ). The riverbed was super slippery, look at the tyres, they turned slick within seconds.

Thanks for the pics, Anshuman! Yep, it was a good fun day overall.

Now, waiting for videos!

I think it was due to failed tire's beading, was a surprise though since this isn't something to be expected of a tire in those conditions.

True and I think no other AT tire would have survived either! That riverbed stuff is best left for MT's.

Great that indeed is an interesting LineUp. So what was the obstacle course and how did the new Isuzu perform?

Hello Anshuman,
That is indeed a great lineup, though missing Thar and I specifically tagged this thread to get a notification so I can join you guys. But I was out of town and missed it.

Hopefully you will plan something soon again and a stock Thar can join you guys with yours truly in it.

Thanks

Isuzu performed as expected, but has a few limitations in stock form, which are-
1. Long Wheelbase.
2. Huge rear overhang.
3. No Tow hook at rear.
4. Bad front to rear weight distribution, rear open differentials spoils the game further.

What was nice-
-Good Lag free power delivery.
-Tight and composed Suspension, does not lose composure in fast rutty climbs.
-Solid build and well screwed together.

Good option as a project car but flawed in stock form. Still remains my top choice in this budget.

A couple of videos from the excursion mentioned above...













Just for kicks!


Past weekend, we had a very quick and impromptu meet and we decided to explore some nearby jungle trails. Here is a quick video from the same.
