I guess the same issue was with Fortuner, though it had ARB suspension kit and bumpers , it struggled in slush due to the tires.
hey i remember seeing you at the event. Next event will surely meet you. And you are right, regarding the Fortuner and the Gypsy. But subject to correction wasnt that guy driving the gypsy on most of the tracks. I think the lady took the reins in her hand at the end and she did it well. anyways, why should we be bothered about all those things, bottom line is, it was fantastic. The event, the participants, the jeeps. everything.

You guys rocked at the very first off-roading event.
Lovely place for such events. Is there any plans for the next event. Do let me know please. will fly just for the event.
Whom does the FJ belongs to. I too have a similar model with a similar colour.
hello. Thanks. The next OTR is not too far away. I will certainly update on this website whenever i get the invitation. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/images...es/biggrin.gif
That FJ belongs to Mr. Salekh. He is a senior offroader but not a member of this community, if i am not wrong.

Congrats Adnan.

I guess Sahalik bhai s FJ40 was doing a very good job like it does generally.
How did Keshavs CJ3A perform with the 6.00x16 NDMS .

I got the Fortuner report from Abinav , had to miss this awesome event since i am in Bangalore.

Salekh bhai 's jeep is nothing less than a wonder jeep. Just no time to think of its performance, always cares for others. Like owner like jeep. Keshave bhai's jeep also performed very well. i think it got stucked only at one place as it landed on a pointed rock, required some assistance of onlookers. but its was over all very good.

Yes you missed good event.

Great initiative. Let me congratulate one and all, who ever is involved in organizing this. Kudos people, Hyderabad needs more events of this sort. Jeep Thrills, Creeping Jeepers and need lot more.

OT: My younger brother was a part of Team Perazzi (The White MM540 & Willys)

Very well captured through the photos. The terrain seems very good for the purpose.

Some parts of the course, by the looks of it, seemed quite intense, and the Fortuner looked out of place in those areas. But the MMs and the Willys took it in stride

And finally, all the best on the new club

Hii.. I dont want to dissapoint you as you seem to be already interested in buying it. but as a matter of fact it did not perform well at all. I think the driver made nearly 10-15 attempts to clear the slush. The problem was due to the stock tyres i believe and even otherwise it really got some good banging while clearing the rocky areas, as the pictures describe, even though the clearance was good enough. Overall dissatisfied with its performance at this event.

Not sure I understood this correctly. Why did the fortuner get a banging even though it seems to have the highest GC.? I think this one has been fitted with a lift kit and the front angle looks pretty good too.

Please shed more light on this point. Thanks

I have the same question. With OME suspension and ARB bullguard, it should have been able to handle the terrain, provided one figures out how to negate the long wheelbase disadvantage. Do the stock tyres make such a big difference on rocky terrain? What contributed most: the driver, the vehicle or the tyres?

It is true that the fortuner is fitted with a lift kit and the front angle looks good. No doubt about that but if you have noticed the rear portion is still the stock with an additional wheel fitted underneath the boot space. That is the place where it got most of the banging. In one of the photos you could clearly see that and in another photo you to could see the left rear wheel in the air. At this juncture the fortuner was hit in front side. I dint find any problem with the driver as it looked quite experienced, the technical issue can be better clarified by a senior bhpian.

The long wheel base was the actual problem that appears here. The driver wasnt able to negate it. Stock tyres only proved problematic in slush. I strongly feel that tyres and driving skills only can avoid damage to a vehicle during OTRs.

Had he replaced the stock tyres, the engine wouldnt have had to face the brunt of the driver while clearing the slush.
