Which is the Kaiser you are referring to? I dont remember seeing one.

The LandRover is also part of Allan's team. Please check with him reg. the 2 MM540s, one is Scorpio-engine powered, while the other is a V8-petrol powered monster

The engine sound of the V8 MM540 was a bit odd, it seemed to be 'missing a beat'. At one of the climbs, it was approaching it with almost idle-rpm-type-of-sound. I thought the driver was aligning for the climb, and would go back and come back for the actual attempt. BUT, it just kept approaching the climb, there was a slight increase in rpm at the base of the climb, and it kept puttering its way coolly across the obstacle. It was almost crawling over it like a diesel Jeep, no high-revving jumping/bobbing like a petrol-powered Gypsy. i am guessing it has a good crawl ratio. xtreme power, could you pls confirm ?

One Jeep which caught my eye was the MM550 of hgnishanth. I had been following the restoration thread :

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/4x4-ve...mplete-11.html

and it was nice to see it in action at TPC10. That Jeep has an amazing stance : those imported rims and 31" Geolandars add to the character of the Jeep immensely.

this must be with lockable center differentials, right? I guess the t-case reduction is quite good? It was crawling like a diesel Jeep.

The Palar Challenge was shown in Car & Bike Show (today at 12midnight). There were serious Offroading going on. Surprised to see that No one has reported this on team-bhp till now.

Apart from this, Review of Linea T-Jet, BMW x5 (just an intro), Range Rover, etc

Congrats to everyone who joined the action.

Yeah heard they did some telecast on NDTV too - Courtesy [FE Bala]!!

But it was at an obscene hour and only the ones who work to UK time zone could watch it!
