Default Got hands on new safari 2.2 VTT

Yesterday evening while returning from my farm there lie a stone on the road and i thought the vehicle will pass through that stone but it hit the rear axle.When i returned home and observed,i felt the clearance from axle with all those supports for suspension,the ground clearance was less.The ground clearance mentioned is 205 mm.Do we get this clearance from rear axle?

Now that is also a fact. No one knows for sure what additives goes into Normal Diesel to make it a "premium" one and no long-term tests have been done on such. Again all the premiums have their own list of additives and they dont disclose the ingredients, no two premium are same.

But we have a well established standard for Normal Diesel, of course if you get it pure from a well known pump.

Though very much liked the IOC premium for Safari VTT, would be trying out for the first time Normal Diesel + System D. That seems to be the neutral ground in this never ending debate about which fuel.

And also, System D is approved by Tata Motors.

The attached Safarivtt.jpg , which is a snapshot from safaridicor.com very clearly gives the ground clearance at 205 mm from the lowest point of the rear axle to the ground. However all these values are for unladen vehicle

hi Manohar, you must've got a letter by now, from Auto MATRIX about your customer relationship no. for future communications, and along with it a photo too.
I'm mentioning this because the guys have mailed us a wrong photo of the delivery ceremony!!!
I guess it's you in the snap, since it's a black Safari in the pic
And what snap have they sent you?

Yes! It's you indeed. Please PM me your postal address if you don't receive any communication from them in the next 2-3 days. Will post you the snap, and will collect my copy from them during my next visit.
And yes, am enjoying the drive
