From rajesh's pics it is quiet evident that the rut where spidy tipped over has become way deeper than it was last time.. its almost become like a trench.

Yup! So dont do your wham bam boom thingie please! Spidey slipped off just with mild throttle. And small correction to Robi's post, its not muddy. Its dry red soil which is very slippery for tyres.

Was much better to steer when it was wet last time.

jaggu - last time.. if you remember, there was no wham bam thank you ma'am done there by me. i nursed it thru that bit..as we were asked by MP not to mess the trail up. and there is no way that bit can be done other than crawl.

Guys, Wham Bam Thank you maam!! Works if you know what is there on the other side and can hold the vehicle through a flip

I doubt that style working in Avalaconda!! Its always better to nurse the vehicle, place your wheels properly, and have a decent spotter who understands how your vehicle will behave, to guide you.

Ofcourse, we all, always learn how to do it right!

This was one of the toughest obstacle last time. And being 1st timer then, I know how difficult it was. I must say this obstacle could be done only with the spotters capability as margin for error was close to zero and was strictly told by MP not to screw up the trial too.

Its gonna be fun this time .

Ohey Sidhu you have done the spidey spot after the break dance day, which Dwarak is talking. The other 2 or 3 which Mr Red is talking you have not.

Vijay,

What you are referring of robinson getting himself winched is the new trail and is treacherous for sure. We are talking of spidy's stunt zone. See livydream's picture of siddu dance pose.
