What was the cost of the Bilstien B6 on the THAR? and what was the handling difference before and after.

Also how much difference did the Pete's tuning box made and what was its cost?What is the rated increment with a Pete's box on the Thar?

Navpreet,

Those Bilstien B6 would cost around 40K. really good one it terms of handling on tarmac. For off road, we dint try extreme with Thar.

As of now, Thar is running stock without Pete's box.

That's a Invader. The vehicle is quite capable, with some amount of modification, you can use for extreme tracks.

After all that hard work in the water / slush / sand and rock, all of us parked the vehicles under the shade for lunch.

We had the traditional mallu cuisine (Kappa & meat curry with pickle)

We had reached towards the end part of the day, with two more obstecles;

Short and slushy water cross &
Plantation drive

Slushy water cross was challenging, few vehicles got stuck badly. Gypsy / two cj3b's and the 540. They had to be winched or strapped out.

Awesome Report, Robinson, coupled with some nice shots!!.. Glad to know that you guys had fun!!..

And that is some height that you've got yourself into. . Spectacular!.

I believe, the THAR, with its CRDe mill and that gear ratio's has a much higher crawl speed than the CJ's.
