THAT means you were evaluating courses for the rally in december?!!

Hey Papps, Off-roading is in my blood as much as regular racing is. I do a load of off-roading around Maharashtra myself. Let me know if I can join you chaps in my Jeep the next time around.

P.S. A-W-E-S-O-M-E Photos. That terrain would not even require 4x4 mode in my Jeep. 2WD would be enough

Scorpio? How did she perform off the road - with all that bulk? Was it 2wd or the rare 4wd?

Wow....nice pics papps.....looks like you had some real fun and experience.
How does the Scorpio do off-road considering the handling is bad on roads

well GTO you can drive a bit of that terrain in 2WD but trust me you do need 4WD, there are lots of places you would get stuck oherwise, on some steep climbs too, the only other things using this terrain are tractors right now, these roads are very different after the monsoon or before

the scorpio is a 4WD, i wouldnt recommend it for off-roading, its too bulky and heavy, there were a few scary incidents, but we managed, its ok for dry weather off-roading not in the monsoon time

well GTO no probs you can come with your jeep, i maybe going again on this weekend
