Cool it Niaz sir, thats just a novice speaking. You don't need to react to something like that. It will be great to have you at the Desert Storm this year. Good luck.

If you are not interested in taking this car back to Australia, I'd to happy to pick up the spoils to save you the effort.

No its a LWB.. i gutted it.. cut the hell out of the boot and doors.. welded it together... all a home job... but the internals are still Zukk tough... those of you who have pushed suzukis to the limit will know how tough these cars are...

Any specific reason for choosing the Vitara for the Storm? Fastest Indian 4WD, thats why? But it has a high CG.

^^I think it was a DIY budget build by a few enthusiasts working during their free time in Perth.

well.. the coil sprung car is always better to soak up bumps and jumps... and the handlinmg should be quite good... let me say that im in some un-charted terretory here, as i dont know anyone who has rallied a Grandie before... .. on the face of it it looks good only hope we dont get lost...

it also has good ground clearence... and everything underneath is well tucked away... depending on how this event goes... i will modify the car extensivly... for the next event.... ooooo shouldnt be thinking that far yet... lets finish this one..... For the first time in my life ill be driving with my "Head" rather than my "foot"

Niaz saab, just read about your car here. Any updates? Sounds pretty unfortunate. A GV lost?!?!?

I think it was that Yellow old gen Vitara from Australia. He had posted the image in one of the threads. Too bad, hope he recovers it soon. It must really hurt to lose a modded Vitara like that, enroute to competition.

Edit: it was in the same thread.
