Well, I would suggest you try to get some documentation supporting it and then believe it. I somehow feel they are trying to sell it to you...

Default A few snaps of my safari

A close up

This trail is near a construction site which I generally frequent.. So today I waxed it up neat and clean & then proceeded for the photoshoot.

The soil is extremely rough and grainy and on occasions duellers loose their grips. Experts would be able to make out instantly

The last two are from last month trip to Mumbai.. Location somewhere near Lonavala.

Hmmm...the LX looks cool in black and yes, Duelers are basically highway tyres and hence tend to be a bit slippery on unmetalled roads.You can think of changing/upgrading them like Happy Wheels either now or after they wear out.

Rahul, JK is correct. If you are seeing 3000rpm at 60kmph on third gear, either your speedo is gone(which means you will clock real fast 0-100 timings) or the clutch is gone.

I guess it is either the speedo or an error with the RPM meter, as we have not seen any other issues that usually happen with a worn out clutch being reported on this thread.
