tyre up, tyre down?
this thread's about off roading- articulation actually. its an old scanned picture of the 'king' descending a track down to the beas. It was loaded with almost 300 Kgs supplies in the back.
Went down in 4H, though needed 4L to crawl up. the rounded boulders and MRF Zigma road treads didnt make the work easy! Inspite of these - She came up without a hitch!
'look at the articulation the wheels of the gypsy are capable of'
' on the way up' - being cheered by the village kids playing nearby!!
would like to see some more pictures of members and their off roading antics!
as the yanks very sanely say ' tread lightly'

true blue maruti suzuki
she's pure maruti suzuki.....all original mechanicals.
some add on's like a hi-speed cooling fan ( off the opel corsa! the original fan is with a mech. clutch and the Eng. tends to heat up on idling rpm - viz. traffic!) and those Hella's are needed - the headlamps arent good enough for highways / off-roading at night!

..... that's the captain in command! the Mrs. loves driving the King, but the wheel can get pretty darn hard to control whilst off roading - esp with those tires! they're not the best choice to be trying stunts!!
...The Mrs. was walking along in front and guiding me along. need to get the wheels over the boulders to clear them! certainly dont want to hit a differential or sump on one of those boulders! ( most common casualty is the rear number plate!!)
thanks guys, unfortunately, i didnt own a digital camera in those days and these pictures are poor reproductions!

thank you kindly
Thank you Mods, for sorting it out!
I did read the thread carefully (embarassingly enough - more than once! and I did follow the instructions - copying the link as marked and pasting it ...dunno what happened!)
Hey low_bass_makker, thats a cool ride..... and pretty decent articulation for a Swift!!!
