Well, I am more like 60 posts BHPian, just above a newbie.

There were other things, like showing up at 9AM by crossing shiradi ghats by fighting off mining trucks, my Jeep having open-heart surgery for a new head, etc.

Heard it was very well organised and the terrain was hard and competitive.

Indianrunner,

Awesome pics. I love the pic of Pajero crossing the water. Thanks for sharing.

Samurai,

I remember in the OTR that you had been to, Pajero was left behind but looking at these pics, may be it should have been taken along.

I heard Pajero did have lots of problem in the slush in Sakleshpur OTR, hopefully we can get some first hand report on that.

Default Pajero

It looks like he moved in too fast for the water level to rise above the hood which is dangerous as it could lead to water getting sucked into the air intake.

My advise before crossing such streams make sure the water level is waist deep not more, or Knee level check where the ground is firm use your low 4x4 and move slowly making sure you do not raise the water level above the hood.

I hope he has checked his air intake after the event.

Did the Pajero cross that stream without any problem after half submerged in water.

Where exactly near Sakleshpur did this take place and let us know when such kind of rides happen ibn future in advance, so that there are many enthusiasts in this forum who like to take part and including me...

Keep posting more pictures and share your experience on the ride you drove....

Hello Phamilyman,

seems like you moved in too fast you are lucky that the water did not get sucked into the turbo or the damages could have been severe.

You have lot of power under the hood use yourt low gear and move slowly next time around and make sure that you walk through the water and check if the ground is firm andthen make your move.

Just a suggestion

Default Budweiser Saklespur 4x4 ‘off-road’ rally

The Saklespur 4x4 ‘off-road’ rally held at a specially-designated area near the coffee estates on August 25 (Saturday). The event was presented by Budweiser.A list of 40 vehicles with around 200 participants (a driver, navigator and co-passengers) took part in the off-road rally. A grueling custom-built stretch of 38 kilometers along the Western Ghats near Saklespur (which lies between Kodagu and Chikmagalur districts) was the rally route. The vehicles crossed streams, slushy paths and difficult terrain to reach the finishing point.

Wow

What happened to this thread - it is almost 3 years old now and no updates?

I purchased a Red M&M Jeep - it is in Bangalore with a close friend of mine. Would love to take part in one of these rallies although I am still new at driving Jeeps.

Hey Samurai, how's the GV doing? Thanks for the advice & opinion on the Jeep as well that from your friend.

Cheers
