Sawyer, we've had healthy rainfall in the past couple of days. I say you guys ought to be ready for:



Would be heck of a lot of fun. Pic from the Shahapur MGE Thread.

Can't think of a more fitting way to say goodbye to your Paj either!

On the public forum? I knew it would be viewed by most 4WD gurus of the forum, so I was pretty careful about what I was saying.

I could not go, but I met the dealer service manager that was there. He said it was hair raising and severely damaged some of the cars that went! The pix ought to be good, if someone is able to post any.

Byram (yellow + white Pajero owner) participated in the event. While the terrain was good, he says that it was terribly managed. No co-ordination or communication. Only 16 entries. I've asked him to come onboard and post his experiences.

The upside? He's got the tulip chart . We'll be offroading there on the coming sunday.

I forgot to mention "apart from me". .A JCB earth mover was literally the 'pick' of the vehicles. Also witnessed the submerging of a bolero and offroading capabilities of an Innova.

We talking about the same event?! I did not hear that the terrain was good - I heard about the Bolero as well, and some Monteros that did not make it. And a Pajero that lost its front bumper and one that had a destroyed tyre that took some doing to replace it. Look forward to your report on the same terrain.

Wasn't this a Pajero event, why are we hearing about Bolero, Montero, Innova, JCBs?

Pajero? what pajero?

The parking lot at the Park hotel saw more Innova's than Pajero's. The Innova's were media vehicles actually. The route was good and the downpour made it pretty challenging. There was a Outlander as well which got stuck real bad and the JCB came to the rescue. There were a couple of Montero's(which is a Pajero outside India so it counts as well) as well and i was in one. Excellent route let down by poor management.

I have to agree. While Pajeros are great on sand and in muck, they are all over the place in typically Indian offroad terrain (rocks, uneven terrain, curvy climbs etc.). It's the long wheel base and weight thats working against the Paj here.
