Hey sanket

Any place for a navigator.

One enthusiastic one coming up

ALL the best pal. The whole of team-bhp is right behind you. And post details and pics of your experience.

P.S. Hey, order your set of stickers and put em up on the 207. We'd love to see ourselves covered even in the himalayas.

how does this reliability thing work? is it TSD based?
what about basic mods u may require like extra fog lamps fuel tank...etc
how much is your total budget working out to?

well reliability is tsd based & the total budget including the travelling the entry fees cost of fuel works out to around 40k.

Hi Sanket, Gud to hear that you doing the Raid this yr !! I'll definitely b there to cheer u if I'm not particpating myself ... Just remember that the route the RAID takes is really tough ! Tata 207 is a decent choice to have fun, just remember to leave your engine running all night long at the night halts in the More plains,etc or else it'll take u days b4 u manage re-starting it.

If there is any help that u need, just let me know. I live in Hiomachal and the raid goes thru my area every year, remember no room for error ( don't mean to scare u ) -- just a fact !! Incase u want u can come to my place and i'll take u around the route, the initial part of the raid.

Remember all TEAM-BHPian's have an open invitation to my farm.

hey man,

I think I read in OD that they are not going to have the More plain stage this year as the competitors complained that the -25 degree temp. was too extreme!
