    Default IJC Muddy River Offroad Bash - September 9, 2012

    Islamabad Jeep Club held an open offroading event at Rawat on September 9, 2012. The event was attended by over 20 vehicles and around 40 enthusiasts including members,friends and several new comers. It was a great day out with great weather, wonderful company, a wide variety of 4x4s and some serious offroading. The event started out with a light drizzle which added some spice to the usual Rawat tracks, but the highlight of the event was around the stream in Rawat whose bridge had been washed away and the rains had created some wonderful offroading opportunities on the banks.

    A number of vehicles got stuck in the mud and upon getting unstuck most of them were given the opportunity to get stuck again which all of of them readily took up!

    We then progressed towards a difficult track downstream but one of the banks had been washed away and getting up the base of the river back to the track became a fun challenge. The soft mud not providing traction and the 4x4s sliding all over the place.

    On the tough climb our first vehicle Shabab's LC80 got stuck in a precarious position and needed some working to get it back down in one piece. All in all it was a great day out and a memorable evening for the Club. The pics and videos will highlight the story better!


    The highlight of the event without doubt was the spirit of the IJC members particularly the senior members/marshals to come to the assistance of anyone stuck or in trouble and get them back on track to unleash more mahem. Great Job Guys! Viva IJC!

    Sir, if i am not wrong i have noticed one thing when you crossed that pond and were driving upwards on that dry land ,your front tyres wobbled little bit which mean the steering rods aren't changed and tyres like these would easily bend it like a rubber pipe ....
    second on way back when your phantome was pulled , the tyres caught mud guard so little bit more height of those rubber gotkaaz on the kamani or above the kamani would to it .....but above all the steering rods must be strengthened

    Now at normal rest, the eye of the shock is accurately lined up with the mounting point. Is that how it should be? Longer shocks would mean that they'd have to be compressed slightly for the shocks to be mounted...which would reduce the travel/flex considerably, anyways. And whilst I would defer to better/wiser judgement on the issue, it doesn't really appeal to me in terms of common sense. Please do put me wise on the issue.
    Fuoad Bhai, I think that the likely way the shock would detach (if it was installed properly) on such basic offroading would be if it is either compressed beyond minimum length or stretched beyond maximum. Looking at the pic, I would have thought that the latter was happening as the shock seemed quite well stretched and the mounting bolt is still a few inches away. You are obviously the best judge of whether that is the case or something else needs tinkering. In any case, for a first full test I think the Phantom passed with flying colors in my books, the suspension tuning with shock travel/placement, spring rates and shackle adjustments being a subjective and lengthy process.

    Amazing truck sir. First time I saw it offroad. I must admit, it performs better than I initially thought it would. Hats off to you sir. And you are always welcome

    Thanks for the comment, Boss. I've seen that video by SK at least 3 billion times, now, and each time I've watched it, the tyre wobble is something that I've noticed, too. The funny thing is, that there is absolutely NO wobble at all, which can be felt whilst driving. Today, on my return from City Saddar Road, I actually gave the beast a good thrashing on tarmac at high speeds. And there's absolutely nothing that can be discerned in terms of unintended lateral movement of the wheels. Admittedly, there is a GREAT deal of play in the steering wheel, which MAY have something to do with it...but if you point the Phantom in a straight line and floor the pedal it moves absolutely arrow-straight, without the slightest deviation from the desired path. As far as the steering rods are concerned, at the time of the build I got all of these replaced. The issue of death wobble was also addressed, and AFTER that, we installed steering stabilizers, too. So...exactly WHY there was that wobble of the tyres in the video, has me slightly mystified! But your point is valid: it would be a wise move to get it re-checked, and a bit of further deliberation on ensuring it behaves would also be a smart move. Thanks for the advice You're absolutely right about the mudguards rubbing, though. The bump stops do need adjustment, and longer shackles up front would also do it a world of good (the rear shackles are already longer ones). Cheers.

    @Suhaib: thanks for the words of encouragement, brother! After seeing the picture, I can imagine how you'd tend to think that the shock got detached whilst at max flex, whilst still some inches away. I think that's a bit of an optical illusion because of the uneven positioning of the body at the time of the photo being taken. On level ground (and after much hemming and hawing whilst we were determining the disease), we found out that that isn't quite the case. With the shock in a state of rest, the mount is perfectly aligned with the eyelet. Being a complete noob when it comes to technicalities, my major concern is: is is correct, or should the shock be mounted whilst compressed/flexed? And as for your comments about suspension tweaks being a tedious and lengthy process: believe me...I KNOW where you're coming from!

    Haha! It was actually my brother Dr Ehsan. I think what happened was that the last donuts before the video were with an open diff and the mud splash/spray was much less (mostly from one wheel) and Ehsan was standing quite close for the video. The video was with a locked diff and a somewhat diffrent ballgame it seems, got to do more work on this stuff I guess

    @Ehsan: thank you for the appreciation, Ehsan. I think it's still a good bit away from being "sorted out" properly, but I'm fairly happy with its performance, thus far. Some other tests (for driver and machine ) must also focus on seeing how good it is at slope negotiation (side slopes and fore/aft slopes), and what are its limits and tolerances with regards to balance. In addition, I'd also like to thoroughly address issues pertaining to articulation and suspension flex. I suspect it'll be getting a good thrashing around at IJC events in the future, Insha Allah.
