That should be fun. And a little wierd.
Looking forward to it.
Can you please give an estimate to how much such a monster costs? (just the price bracket should do)
And ya, your projects never fail to amaze me.

Claps!! and Cheers, This is what I can express in words for your project.
I am still wondering about the mileage that GYPsy is extracting. Please can you comment about the Horses of that 1.6L Engine.

but basic thing is she is fast, how reliable at that speeds at the moment i dont know, but im working on her in terms of high speed reliability at the moment,
well for starters you can try her during the tpc and youll get a glimpse of the power she beholds,
ask prithvi how amazed he was with her power during the hawk challenge.

I agree with Allan, had the pleasure of driving this monster last week and it was quite something. loved the sound it makes. But it was still 5 wheels. Allan, I wonder how it became seven wheels so quick...but then with you nothing is impossible...is it?

well with the autocross happening this week
was wanting to participate and try my hand at this sport for a change, just for the fun of it.

just wondering what to do to my gypsy.
following is what i have decided.
1. remove rear seats and rear spare tyre
2. remove roof mounted lights
3. remove winch but let the winch bumper stay
4. Go back to stock suspension and stock shackles
5. use gypsy stock steel rims
6. use 205 size tyres, what tyres should i go for( jk tornado, mrf zdm3.not yet decided need an opinion??)

this transformation is only temporary and shall be reverted back as soon as the rally is over

dear Mr allen (Xtreme Power)
Good day!
Nice work there.....the Gypsy look stunning!
meanwhile, could you let me know how u mark that yellow round on the disc/alloy wheel? is it a paint job or sticker work? i have noticed the same on your orange jeep also.
Appreciate your reply.

Fantastic, you got back on 4 wheels right? (I can see the frame with the wheel turned right to bring the left wheels back to ground)

Hi Allan, Nice pictures,

BTW, What was the autocross about? Drivers showcasing their builds or abilities or was it a track where you had to beat a time?

BTW, why did you change from the SPOA setup?

cheers
