I believe, the THAR, with its CRDe mill and that gear ratio's has a much higher crawl speed than the CJ's.

Thanks Dhanusha.
Yes, Thar's crawl speed is higher than CJ or MM540, but it's almost same as Invader. Short comparison:

Diff Ratio:
THAR : 4.3
CJ : 5.38
MM540 : 4.88
Invader : 4.27

Robinson sure seems to be showing the gang how it's done in a beautifully modded Invader. And here we spend all our time talking about CJs, MMs and Gypsies. Proof that a good driver & sensibly modded 4x4 can keep up / beat the traditional champs.

@ Rob : Sheer taste man. I thoroughly enjoy seeing pics of your beast.

Some truly spectacular action shots there. Congratulations!! I am curious as to how the modified scorpio fared in the water? It was a 4X4, I assume.

Hi GTO,

Thank you for that note.
Invader is a capable machine, as you said, with some basic modification, that vehicile is capable to deliver its maximum output.

Happy to know you enjoying all the action pic of south. You should come down for a event to see it by yourself. Will be really nice to have you in with us.

Regards

Anurag,

Thanks.
The scorpio had some basic modification. (Snorkel / MT Tyres / Bumpers and suspensions)
Its a 4 wheel drive, and did the water cross with out much fuss.

Interesting things happening in my own backyard. Though am no off-roader, I would like to come in as a spectator, just to get to know what it takes to be one

Robinson - Is that Thomas of Periyar Hotels, in the 7th snap of Swastikviji's post no: 32?

robinson, amazing otr, this group's activities deserve to be covered on team bhp in future and your machine is awesome.

Can you please get details about this jeep like what model it is, engine, what alterations are done in the soft top, performance of rims and tyres, total cost involved etc (in short whole build story) I think its a cj500.
I know its too much information to ask but its a looker and I was thinking on building a jeep on exactly same lines, any information would be appreciated.

Regards

Pranav

Pranav,
Apologies for the delayed reply.
