@HappyWheels - thanks and CONGRATs to you also.

I liked the color, though all other vehicles at home are SILVER, but this had to be a little flashy (love it)

The crash bar on the rear is to protect against the people who don't seem to love their own and other's vehicles and like to graze past other people's vehicles.

Lack of reverse sensor, there is no impact due to the bar.

@rrsteer: how did you calculate the temp basis the needle position

Sorry for the confusion, I meant an angle of 135 degrees for the semi-circle of the temperature gauge. Not a measure of temperature.

The temp gauge shows the temp of coolant. It goes to about 80-90 deg C on a normal running engine. It should not go beyond 100 deg C or so. Over that it will steam off and/or might explode (pressure cooker effect).

135 was way too much, could not have been degree Celsius .

If so, this is dangerous and such pics should not be encouraged and to boast about such things is foolhardy in my opinion.
well yes i was driving while taking the pics...and yes I should have added the cautionary notice: do not try yourself...but trust me it was not a stunt..We were on NH7...an almost expressway and with Zero vehicles around...and I made sure that safety is first dear...

Thanks Hari

Those are Geolandars, fitted when the odo was 54k kms; they've covered 36k kms including one Leh trip.

Great pix tsk !

Suman; congrats! Hope we see the 100,000 soon

And those geo's look great for 36k run! Well worth the money and a must swap form OE tyres IMHO.

Its been sometime that I logged in and a whole lot of things to catch up to. Been doing some small trips since the summer forest tour of Vidharbha. Clutch is very weak now, burning smell comes often - as direct result of all the antics that is done with 2wd.

Other than seen enough greenery for this year, looking for a drastic brown, rugged, erosion-eroded place in around mid October but then who goes around that time at those places. And of course, Tanveer is as usual on a roll, and so many other travelogues to read.

As for the Safari VTT-TMT, it does what it has been doing all these 3 years, bringing us back home safely from the remote yet great lesser known places.

And, as said, with a whole lot of reading to do, plus a few travelogues to post.

The old clutch is still going okay, no problem in the plains or for moderate slopes. It is the bigger hill inclines for a 2wd drive, that is when even a little bit of half clutching, even for very short time, the burnt smell is coming up. The clutch is around 52k km now. It has taken a lot of abuse, particularly at Arunachal-China border Bumla journey to North Sikkim to source of river Jonk in Sunabeda to Dalma hill top in Jharkhand to other side of Chitrakote falls and Bonda tribe in Chhattisgarh/Orissa to going along the River Jayanti Indo-Bhutan border to now at Bagora-Kurseong and interior Garbeta in West Bengal.

It is quite risky to tackle the hill road inclines or slush/mud now, but still when I see the cost of a new clutch assembly - there's another couple of overnight weekend travels that can be done on that cost. But then these are absolutely flawed reasoning and talk...

Will change the clutch plate if going to Ladakh or a big mountains around 2nd week of October or otherwise the old plate stays till it fails or around 65k km, whichever comes first.
