Smile Kelambakkam Offroad: 20/3/2011

A small group went to Kelambakkam last Sunday for a variety of reasons which also includes drinking Horlicks, however one of the reasons was to take the two new gypsies that were recently added to Terra Tiger's gang offroad.

They are Ranjit's "Ice Cream" and Vijay's "Chikku Bukku"

Don't ask me about the weird names. Weird owners and hence weird names.

It was fun and different being a small group we had a lot of fun. We also tried out some new obstacles apart from the usual in Kelambakkam.

All of this was taken on my phone and it didn't occur to me to take videos and pictures earlier on when more exciting stuff happened.
Sorry guys this is all I got.

Hi Petrol head, where are the offroad pics, Is this your new gypsy which you told me about, If i remember its a J**p killer right?

So finally you guys started doing 2wd tracks.

For what purpose did you remove the front bumper?

What tires are those and what size?

Sorry for the OT questions, i am a newbie to Gypsys .

Hi Franky,

I want you to feel at home, when you come down to Chennai.

Regards,

Arka

PS- Most of this can actually be done in 2WD, but at the expense of your tyres, steering and suspension...........occasionally some body work

Hi Franky,

You have demonstrated a lot to the kids in Aavalakonda 2011.

Since you are the rising star, I will wait for your CJ3B, if and when it manages to reach Chennai.

Regards,

Arka

PS - Hat's Off to Vijay to get the Gypsy ready and kicking in its 1st OTR.

Hey Franky,

Forget doing it in the 3b, I would like to see you walk the terrain first.

Let me help you recollect that statement buddy. It was specifically to you and your jeep. Let me not push it and call it a jeep killer. If it does end up slaying a few egos in the process, I'll be quite impressed. You will get to see what it can do at Palar this year so just chill maadi and dont jump the gun.

Arka's 3B with 7.00 16 NDMS? lol.. can you handle it? and now you are telling him what his 3B can do? Man sometimes you completely have me in splits (ever heard the statement - don't teach papa how to........)

Arka saar, i dont believe in getting a gun for a sword fight.

Fiery saar, we are walking up or rather crawling up from the past 68 years.

Vijay saar, there will be a new ringmaster in town to tame all the TIGERS and train them.

Have you ever heard of Ghostbusters?

There is a time and place to prove , that day the phoenix shall rise from the sands and teach the senile papa.

We wanted to do a good off-road event during the monsoon and planned to do recee. As a part of it I went to an event organized by Mr.Rajkumar and Mr.Anand at Yercaud hills on 22 April 2011 with a very small group of off-road enthusiast joining in from Salem and Erode. Unfortunately, my gypsy was not ready so didn’t take it, went to Salem in car and joined Rajkumar in his MM550.

Participants
• Rajkumar (MM550)
• Anand (CJ 5)
• Ashwin (MM550)
• Ganesh(MG410)

It was a beautiful trial with good technical obstacles. It became tough when it started to rain. I could not take many pictures as it started to rain but I am posting some pictures, which I managed to take.
My Special thaks to Rajkumar for arranging this off-road trip.
