The Nissan was actually driveable? That too off road?

And I thought it needed full restoration!

Videos taken by me (minus the audio - my cam doesn't record sound :-( ) are being uploaded now. Will post the links later. We had two LCs in the OTR to add variety to the types of vehicles in the OTR.

No Vikram. I was trying to capture the climb of all the vehicles and missed the descent.

Mission safari

Nice pics!!! Videos well taken. I have couple of videos and pics with me. Will add in few days:-) I was impressed by both the jeeps ability and land cruisers. Surprisingly jeeps had more grunt VS Land cruisers 4.2 litre engines. Landcruisers impressed with thier off road ability with good axle articulation despite huge length and weight problem. Patrik sir showed how you negate the brakeover angle problem wonderfully.

It was visual treat to watch both old world 4x4 and the new generation 4x4s performing on the same track. Jeeps were fantastic as usual landcruisers were more comfortable ride on the same terrian (dont know how comfortable were the owners while trying out stunts what jeeps did:-);-)) One tonner off roadability needs no description!

PIcs & videos will follow

Sorry, couldn't make this. As I mentioned to you on Friday, it was 50/50 due to a family commitment. The pictures speak for the fun that was had.
