GS, don't edit the videos too much. Post all of them. Especially the one where i'm explaining to Gogi about people rashly cutting each other in OTRs...!

It's good we did this terrain now. We will definitely not be able to do the same one in the monsoons.

Dear Behram, sorry for sending that sms late. I will definitely keep you informed much earlier next time. Also, can you please have a look at my Classic thread. She overheated again!

I loved the way the Classic just crawled up everything with zero accelerator input. GS, there's a video of me demonstrating that...

That is true some of the terrain will no to be accessible in the monsoon, the idea of these recces is to chalk out the possible routes and then recce it again during the monsoon for the final route.

A word of caution!

This is called the Alfa Kilo Challenge.

And the man after whom I name the event never did anything half as..d!


The final route will definately push all our vehicles and driver skill to the max.

Hi,

In case somebody would allow me in their Jeep and I am nearby I would love to make it to this tribute to Alfa_Kilo.

Regards
Rahul

Hi Rahul,
you are always welcome in my jeep. And by the time the alfa kilo challenge starts, there should be another cj3b added with a free seat available!

Tejas be careful,

4th pic in last set of pic, it was a wrong move dude..
you will damage your diff someday,
there was no place towards right, possiblity of you cutting your sidewalls because of stones. even the running board was too close to the stones.

i hope its just pic and someone was there to guide your way.. but still major chances of damage to the diffs.

Devang, you're right. There was no place to negotiate and we had to move the centre rock away so that it did not hit the dif. Rocks were placed in front of the rear wheel to clear the foot step. That stretch took a long while to pass. I took a knock on the skid plate once in this stretch and once on a earlier hump.
