There's no way you could have done it with an open differential.
Rear LSD, heh?

Hey Vijay,
Seriously, you would be missed by everybody.
Thanks for this information about punctures.
Anyway, have fun at Deutschland!
Cheers,
Deepak

Hey, you too are missing it, I thought this will be your last event before you left.

Well, at least you have my company for watching it from the virtual sidelines.

I think I will do a Vinay Thomas on this one, I'll attend in spirit by calling up you guys at the event. Hope there is signal there...

You forgot to mention about your tires what happened on that day.

The intention is not just to drive what is available in front of you. My intention is that you guys understand and appreciate the complete platform and its intricacies, so that you appreciate exactly what we are up to. When you understand the whole platform, believe you me, you will be delighted. Therefore, I'll try and be there to explain all the features to you. During this interaction, I will also get a first hand information from you on your exact needs. In the meanwhile, here's something to delight you. That's me driving. This photograph was taken 2 days before the July 09 Great Escape at Shahpur (between Mumbai and Nasik). I was testing my R&D prototype. I had to do it 2 days before as I could not show the Thar at the Great Escape, as it was not launched at that time. The route, which was described as "very very difficult" was completed in 2 wheel drive only. There was no need to engage 4 wheel drive at all, and it was raining intermittently. Enjoy!.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar
well that statement inspires a big boost of confidence in the man and his machine!

Thanks to M&M for their support. Looking forward to seeing pictures, by-the-way I am into photography, so expecting a lot from you guys,. please do a good job with your cameras.
Please post all questions and answers (from Mr Behram & team) regarding Thar, I am picking one for sure, so would like to know everything about Thar.
Enjoy guys,.

Dear Sharath,

"Vinay Thomas" i like that & he loves spending time with every one & even if he is not there, Sitting out of action is like Pumkin sitting on the side of the road, pefer calling & taking the update on the OTR is more of fun & enjoy it & gives the feeling of being there in action & not missing any thing,

but will surely miss you in this event, you would have loved this route,

It will be a big achivement having the Mahindra Team go through this trail,

& more over would have loved having the Thar perform in a trail like this it would have given the best info on the performance,

finally we all get to see the hybrid 540 the talk of the town, Behram is reaching by noon so he will miss the good amount of action,

Well will take you to this trail when you are here, some other time,

till then you take care
Best regards
Vinay thomas
