Vinod Bhai, I did not see your Jeep. Hopefully you all had a great time. Nice seeing so many Jeeps alltogether on off roads.

Hi dessert king,

This time i was a co driver for most of the time. My jeep is down for rear axle job. Hope to bring it in next OTR. Yes we had a good time getting stuck and being recovered. The off road was not too easy nor extremely difficuilt. The terrain was a nice blend. At the end every one had his share of wheel spin

Some more pics from our fellow jeeper Gopi who owns immaculate 1.3 litre white gypsy with red flared arches. He is a good photographer and a good off road driver too!! Other man in action was Vivek taking over 2wd MM540 and making it cross places where 4wd found it difficuilt to go. Kartik was always there in his superb black gypsy with white wheels, Manoj on his international engine power willys loves taking dips in deep water:-))))

The black CJ340 with NDMS 700x16 belonged to vivek and was the jeep of the event. Efforless through out.

lets pics do the taking again.....

Default another mini off road on 25th january 09

Hi Guys,
We had a small OTR on 25 Jan -09 which started at about 2 p.m and ended by 8.00 p.m We guys met at hotel harish on OMR for lunch and headed to thiruporur the same location done lasttime. Though the location was same we took a different route and ended the OTR after crossing the embankment through feilds to the main road.

We had the following vehicles-

M&M CJ 340 DP
M&M MM550 XDB (black colour)
MM540 DP (Mine)
Gypsy - 2 Nos
gypsy kings- 2 Nos
Mahindra Classic
Mitsubishi pick up L200

We had tough time crossing the bund and it was miracle that LWB pick up could do it.
Not good at writing, hence so short pics will follow

Hi Vinod,

As mentioned earlier also, "Amazing trail". Bet you guys had a ball going through it.
Not many Jeeps have the right kind of tryes for such a terrain, its just my observation and dont intend to offend any Jeeper.

I recognize the red classic, Trammway how did it perform?

Waiting for more pics.

Cheers !!!!!!!!

Hi randeep,
thanks it was a nice trail indeed, was challenging to some extent. Your observation regarging tyres is right as far as my jeep goes. Iam running on 235 HT bridgestone. I did a mistake, should have sourced NDMS 7.00 x16 somehow . Barring my vehicle and Mitsubishi L200 all others were wearing right shoes. Haida make tyres of trammway performed extremely well. Others were on Mechlline and BF goodrich.

regarding the performace of trammways classic, without doubt it is one of the best performing SWB jeep. All the jeeps and gypsy's cleared the bund stage pretty well, though this section was really challenging. Mitsubishi L 200 struggled but could make it somehow. MM550 with BA 10 struggled due to its lower gearbox mounting and 15 inch tyres. SWB jeeps and Gypsys had least problem in clearing the bund thoough this required some tough manevouring.

At this section trammways classic got stuck big time. he had to reverse instead took a challenge of crossing the rut perpedicular with a steep mud wall. god stuck royally. As you can see later manevours took the vehicle to the edge of the mudwall. bushes made the headway immpossible, he had to roll his windscreen down and remove the top to prevent any damage. In the process he couldnt prevent damaging his tail lamps.

P.S manpower was used as the gypsy got stuck where no other vehicle could reverse and position itself.
