Thanx, point noted and i've told all present there that the gypsy is "hot".

You are right about the positioning. As it is a temporary tryout, nothing is finalised at the moment!

I did a mistake in removing the front bumper which led to me not pushing hard yesterday. The AC condensor was exposed and did the work of the bumper at times which led to my dismay!

Am working on something now!

yeah, from captain after a 3 LONG years while the rest of us were gaping!

BTW, greenhorn went back into the slush pit with a vengeance and did it 3 times or so after captain thought him how to do it

One can actually see the smile in last set of pictures!


Also, what is really commendable is the effort by Mr. Mahendran - He has unfortunately lost one arm in an accident and drives a MM540 with PS. And does the obstacles too!

kudos to his spirit!! He was trying his best and did quite well too. Few have the courage to be back to normal life and look for a life that is more challenging!!

p.s- I found siva too aggresive in clay pits (pics). Too much of power an lead to loss of control
