I am in coonoor now. Today while traveling to Emerald Lake I was following a bus and there were sounds coming like it is miss firing. However. While returning I realised the sound was coming from my beast. The sound is like sometimes a scooter or buses miss fire. I stopped and checked under the body to check if there are any lose dangling parts, but nothing. However soon after the sound stopped. Any pointers?

Fuel adulteration is one of the commonest causes.

Completed 11k kms in about 6 months of ownership in my pearl white VX. Nothing significant to report except the intoxicating thrill in munching highway miles at 3.5k rpm in 5th gear. One interesting observation though, the only sound I observed was the intermediate metal on metal contact sound heard when passing through mildly rough patches, the issue was finally resolved by TASS Ooty, who placed rubber plugs on the rear jump seat plastic struts and on the middle row metal struts (holding the seats in place), and voila a fully silent truck. Unlike the previous iteration (2.2 Dicor) the only sound this beast makes on any kind of rough roads is a firm thud thud and no squeaks or rattles.

That's right condor. Most of them are useless, but I am really interested in that chrome bar used for fog lights. Need to see how it's mounted. I run a similar setup for Hellas on my UFO.

The term is meant for vinyl wraps used to cover the whole body or a part in order to change the look and colour of the vehicle altogether. It comes in dull, glossy and printed shades. IMO, its expensive and doesn't look good either, leave aside the work i have seen on few super cars. But then they are super cars and Can look good even if my 7 year old daughter would have used her crayons on them

Thanks for the explanation.

In the picture at Storme site, it is the bumpers and side cladding that has been body wrapped to make it matt black. Why can't TM simply leave them unpainted? The same result will be achieved at far less cost. I hate body coloured bumpers!

Came back after a quick trip from Coonoor. ODO stands at 3105 Kms. Truck performed immaculately in the hilly regions and was comfortable at high speeds (read within 100 Km/hr) in highways. There were 2-3 instances where i heard the "mis-fire" kind of sound, but it vanished soon after and never resurfaced. I believed it was due to adulterated diesel which KPN Pump at Salem gave me (as ortho-surgeon pointed out).

Total Trip Distance: 1263 Kms
Diesel Consumed: 91.04 Litres
Effective "kitna diya": 13.87Km/Litre

I have a Chennai - Madurai - Kanyakumari - Trivandrum - Chennai trip coming up in March.

Few snaps from the Coonoor trip.

The Storme explorer edition kit came with a lot of goodies, I have installed it on my VX at the time of delivery. I got the body decals, the front nudge guard, rubber floor mats, door visors, the touchscreen music system, a tyre inflation kit and slime kit, chrome garnish on the lights all for Rs 45000. I feel its good value for money, especially when considering buying them separately and the quality and fit and finish are quite decent.
I am not sure if this combi package is available even now, what I see new is the body wrap and the small bar to mount lights and the blackened alloy wheels. Also in the pic the bigger off road tires, are they sure these bigger tires don't affect wheel clearance and turning?

Hi,

Good to be back on this forum in 2015 after a long break. My truck has completed 25k and 16 months. Quick update on my longest drive on my truck. Drove to MP from Jaipur covering 2600 Kms in 11 days covering locations Orchha, Khajuraho, Jhansi, Panna, Kanha, Pench, Pachmarhi, Bhopal, Kota. Amazing experience throughout MP (beafutiful forest and roads throughout, except for strech from Bhopal to Kota, where my truck got hit on back bumper by some stone and broke black plastic cladding....) Truck rode well on very well laid roads, no roads, jungles, hills, villages with equal ease. Got lost twice once driving towards orchha near AGra in dense fog and again in Pench (because of reliance on google maps !!)...Will post some pics soon.

Now have to get the bumper fixed (black plastic under the bumper)....

In samsung phones you need to save password for bluetooth on your device. once done it will remember it and connect everytime you get into the car.
