Default Jaipur OTR - 10th May 2009. EDIT: 26th May Added

Guys, yet another great OTR at our end. One more jeep added to our group this time. This time we had planned to complete the dry river bed which we started few weeks ago. And we did that. Found our way to Ramgarh dam after driving almost 25 Kms.

The weather was good this time not too hot. We started at 5 in morning and reached our offroad starting point till 6 AM. I had new shoes in my Jeep and actually liked speeding this time in sandy river bed. We had our share of nice advance level climbs and descends and little experiments here and there. Here are pics, below pics are mix from my camera and Anukraman's camera.

Both side of this wide river bed were off course mud walls, we decided to try our skills in just one little portion.

This climb wasn't too steep or too long but it was loose sand and with each try the wheels removed more sand and the pits became larger.

Hi Jaipur 4x4 guys,

Seems you really had a nice OTR there. Whenever you plan your next OTR, you must start a thread well in advance and also send invitation to NIOC members.

Keep off roading hard..

Hi Yogesh,

Amazing pics brother. One thing I'd like to ask is which make are the tires that are on the front wheels. If I'm not mistaken the front and rear tires are different brands. I really love the tread on the front tires, please do comment.

Regards,

Autocraze

HI yogesh,
Wonderful OTR, NIce pair of shoes, but iam seeing the inner wheel wells of the rear already rubbing against the tyres. This will damage the tyre and artticulation will suffer. Advise you to put spacers.

The Petrol Mahindra P2150 seems to have adopted used sand grips. Again with standard rims the it will foul with wheel wells during articuation. Also how does one manage spares of this engine (petrol peugeot)?? These are even rare that Hurricane engine?

Liked Alfa kilos jeep, nice paint job, but how do you get out of the jeep? The roll cage seem to hinder your way? But the front design is good, it will prevent you from being thrown out during extreme side slopes. The rear roll cage can be improved.

Good fun, lovely terrain. I too would be most interested in an OTR in Jaipur. Let us know earlier so that we can drive down to Jaipur, shoot at the local Jaipur ranges ( Delhi is under repairs these days ) and after doing an OTR drive back.

What are the names and rides of the gentlemen in the other vehicles and bikes.

I guess you are coming here to Gurgaon on the 16th ?

If yes welcome, it would be a pleasure to see again.

WOuld you and your family like to stay at my farmhouse for the night ? It is just 3 Km from out meeting point ?

Our second phase started with getting down from the cliff.. We selected a not too easy path for that. It was a skidding experience.. The red t-shirt guy is making a world record or what..?

We again started racing towards our destination 'Ramgarh Dam' in the soft road of dry river bed. And after a while bang, it was right there in front of us.. but sadly no water there. We played on sand dunes and a little here and there..

Thanks. It is not very difficult to enter/exit the vehicle, same as a CJ-3B derived jeep. What would you have preferred for the rear of the RC?
