M/T I have heard, what is NDMS?

Are they the ones we find on Mahindra Major, 4x4 types? I dont see that tyre on any of the websites.
I was told, that mahindra 4x4 jeeps go on this trail all the way to the top with supplies for the rubber plantation.

I had tried tacking the trail thinking my tyres had a bigger contact patch, and were better grooved, but it turned otherwise. May be, Major does better because of all the weight(they carry supplies), it keeps the tyre pinned to the ground.

Will go there sometime next month to see how those guys handle it and may be if it is dry I might just make it to the top.


Edit: Found out what NDMS is, MRF has a bunch of tyres that doesnt show up in their website, like Rover, Safari... NDMS Link

Hello Mumbai 4x4 gang,

Any off-roading happening in Mumbai on the Saturday the 8th of November? Would like to join you folks if any plans are brewing up there.


Cheers,

Great videos and pictures. Liked the video of the gypsy jumping and the prado going around.

Amazing vehicles. and the gypsy looks awesome in those alloys both black as well as white.
