Just few questions robinson,

1) Are you a member of any offroad club in Indonesia?
2) How can one be a part of this event? either participant or spectator
3) Why is the Tyre of the FJ off the ground during inspection in the last pic of your first post.
4) What is the rope type material tied on the Winch of almost all the vehicles and whats the use?

Sorry to raise so many questions, i have been bitten by this offroading bug badly and want to learn as much as I can and their is no better place for that then TBHP.
@4x4 Cruiser,
Let me answer all your questions, don't be sorry for any questions, all of us learn by sharing experiences.
1) Yes am member of of the leading off road club in Indonesia (SJI-Suzuki Jip Indonesia). To be part of the group you need to be registered with a 4x4 vehicle.
2) To take part for events, you need to have a vehicle and member of a group. You can be spectator, but not for adventure OTR only for speed off road events.
3) The vehicle you see in that picture is the Toyota Hyluks. The only diesel powered 4x4 in the event. That's the winch test during scrutiny.
4) Thats just a rubber mat tied for easy handling.

That's a Army amo box. But there its mainly used by all the offroaders to carry tools / recovery ect. Its water proof and light weight.

One last question what is this lever? is it a switch to operate winch?
@ Viji sir, Yes finally thought of sharing some of my OTR experiences of Jakarta.

That's the winch test, were you hook your winch cable to the bar on top, and operate the winch. After the vehicle is lifted, the marshals do a general check up like; axle / suspensions / tire rod ends etc.

You right, that's the winch operating switch. Remember we were searching for the same in KR market. Couldn't find it though.

Hi Robinson,

Thanks for answering to my queries. Rubber Mat on the Winch cable, that actually is a good idea, I am planning to install a Winch on my vehicle and trying to learn about "Do's & Don'ts", this is really a good way to handle the cable, convinient too.

I have gone through your post atleast 10 times and each time I open it, i purely get amazed, waiting for Next year events in our country, AKC, Exxamm, TPC. Hopefully by that time i will be able to do these stuff.

By tying a rubber mat close to the cable hook, makes it more convenient to pull out the cable when required, and its faster and safe.
Am sure in the coming years you will see a lot more organised off road events in the country.

Default 150 Kms of Adventure drive

After the flag off from the corporation office. The co drivers took out the tulip chart and started guiding the drivers.
It was superb to watch the convoy of 120 4x4 machines entering the toll road and driving towards the trail.
After 65 kms on tarmac, towards a town called bandung, we diverted towards small villages and entered the forest.
The first 20 kms was medium track, but later the stretch were extremely tough.
Let me describe one obstacle which I almost gave up.
A 80 degree dip approximately 15ft height, all the vehicles had to hit on the front bumper, and try to get little traction on the front tire to move forward and on heavy slushy terrain and climb up to a deadly incline, while doing that, the vehicle behind would tie the front one from the back to prevent toppling. A smallest mistake would throw the vehicle out the track and topple.
And this we had to do in the middle of the night. We had excellent team work in that obstecle, and all six vehicles came out with out any damage.

The stay in the base camp was an experience by itself. Reached the first check point at 2 in the morning, It was just a open ground were all the team vehicle join together and pitch their tents. We cooked our food, ate with pleasure and slept for few hours in our bags.
The cloths were dirty, no washrooms, just open area for all your natures call, the only way we could clean our self was wet tissues.
There were few vehicles with major damage, all night they fixed the vehciles and drove next day morning.

Will continue with pictures;

Hey Robinson,
You have got me hooked on to your thread. Keep them coming.

In this attached photo I see that you have some electrical setup through which you have powered your electric cooker and something else. Can you please clarify what kind of setup this is.
  1. Will a normal inverter be able to power an electric cooker which requires 3000w?
  2. What is this motor/pump at the top right corner ?

The left one is the inverter. Yes, it can take the electric cooker.
The one on the right side is the compressor, for the dif: locks.

Sure, will post all the pictures. The night drive was the most challenging, but got very few pic's of night trail.
