My old dSLR is not retired, it still does duty at office whenever some photo-op presents itself. Like this: https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-v...0-xdb-how.html. This was shot using the same camera model (E-500) as Sreeraj's.

Guys.. can some one invite me for the next OTR? I do not have a 4X4, but if someone could accomodate me in their jeep, it would be great and I can start learning 4X4 handling

Since I didn't want to start my exhaustive OTR report on the 9 page, I have put it up in a new thread here: https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-e...isle-ghat.html

All pics are in high resolution, mostly 1920x1080 to fit my screen.

Hey rabnawaz,

You are welcome to join us on next OTR with or without 4X4. Keep watching for next OTR posting.

Awesome Jeep,..however for the kind of terrain you guys are hitting the tyres seem grossly inadequate,..any comments from the owner.

My Geo's ATS performed excellent in that terrain, only last hill climb all tyres failed even M/T tyres required momentum to climb.

My first OTR with the brand new Geo AT-S. Except the last hill, it didn't slip anywhere else while crawling up or descending. Can't remember getting this much traction with the Apollo Storm before.

The Yoko Geo's are a great set of A/T tyres. No doubt about that.

Samurai: At the place just after Siddu had got the jeep stuck, IIRC the tyres of your CJ were spinning. Was that because of tyres or you had the wrong speed/momentum at that part? Can't recollect because there was too much rain & leeches around that area to stand and observe.

Grrrr! That was the price I paid for following you. I saw your speed when you crossed it and chose 2nd low for that crossing. Big mistake, it had a section where one side there is no traction at all, this was in 1ft deep watery muck. So one side tyre went to free spinning. I had to move back and forth many times before I could garner enough momentum to overcome that. During the reverse journey I carefully picked 3rd low and crossed it wthout any drama.



If I am not mistaken, you are referring to the spot at 14th second of the above video by Prithvi in the earlier event at the same place. See how fast he went.

Since you have locker, you could crawl at low speed. We the open diff people need momentum here.

I know, Have seen quite a few 4x4's getting stuck at various OTR's. At times, following the vehicle in front of you/doing what they did can get one stuck

Yes, I was in 1st L and was able to do that in 1st L ONLY because of lockers. With open diff, you for sure need momentum.
