Guys,
It takes immense pleasure to inform you all that Mahindra would be supporting this event in terms of recovery support. Mahindra vehicles with winches would be there all three days of the event to assist recovery and what ever little service support possible.

Now pray the rain gods as hard as possible to play havoc on the terrian.
The 4x4 ball has set rolling!

Cheers!

That's the spirit. Such support will come a long way in encouraging this sport to progress. Thanks

Though I beleive its the driver and not the vehicle but you all were amazing and hardcore. Kunal just waiting for you to do up my mm550.

I will be seeing you all very often in the future.

Cheers.. Kishor.
Hey Kishor it was nice having you as co driver!
I don't know about gurus but it is not as difficult as it looks and once your vehicle is done it will get more than it's fair share of the attention!

Guy's kishor's mm550 is going to push the bar up a bit!

Dear all - further to Vinod's post no 271 above, needless to say that Spikey and I will also be there with the Thar, now code named "Black Cat". This time she'll be with an alternate power train optimized for the rains!

Best regards,

Hey, thats not fair You cant optimise power trains for different terrains.

Thinking on a different plane..

BD sir, please give your prospective customers an in dash option too, to optimise setups for different terrains.

Cheers

Apart from power train optimisation we will also get to see how JK's 245 tyres perform in slush!

Vikram/Vinod you guys are talking of a button on the dash that has three settings? like "Sensible", "Wild" and "Evil" ?? like sport comfort and economy??

How difficult is multiple maps on the same ECU? Is it a major change?
