REMU, Its not a new acquisition. The diesel Gypsy is been with me since last 4 years.
I haven't done much mods on that and since its diesel, it is kept for utilitarian purposes. But Since you asked ,I will start a new thread on that soon.

Yes will be running out or parking space soon. But planning to get something like a parking silo like this one in VW factory. to store my 4x4's.

Mate what you have done to this Gypsy shows the love and passion you have for Gypsy.
Hats off, I have subscribed to this thread to watch out for the engine modding you will do to this, as I think it badly needs it.

Wow JC you really made my day. Have read alomost all your thread(Except the Building a rally gypsy) and its amazing at your spirit man. The gypsy looks nice except like devang said the soft top square part spoils it.

But you got some issues in mind so everyone has different tastes. Anyways you have made me started wanting to buy a gypsy now. Interesting!! Updates please. Did the LSD get installed?

Hey Maddy
Shibu has got himself Diff locks and not LSD's
The other day I was browsing the net and cam across the following article

Quote:
To overcome this limitation many vehicle manufacturers fit a limited slip differential (LSD) to the rear of most new 4WDs. A LSD is an improvement to the open differential but, as its name implies, it only provides limited drive to the wheel that has traction. To appreciate just how ‘limited’ the slip is, try the following test. With a vehicle fitted with a rear LSD, place an axle stand to lift one of its rear wheels off the ground and then chock both front wheels with a brick. The LSD will not provide enough torque to drive the vehicle over the brick (vehicle obviously in 2WD). If a diff lock was fitted then the vehicle would drive forward easily.
Khan_sultan also started a thread on the same subject which is quite informative

It has. I went trough all your threads on Jeeps & Gypsies. I had been a perfect couch potato! Now I am already dreaming about buying a 4x4.
