    Default Jhal Magsi Desert Challenge 2013 - News and Updates Thread!

    Since its awfully quiet on the thread and since I am playing with keys while the shahsawars are playing with steering wheels, I just thought I would do something useful today and start a thread for race updates and news while we wait for participants to get back. Here are the PakWheelers I know attending the rally:

    Doc Nadeem Naeem - Vehicle : Nissan Patrol Pickup - Navigator : Zohaib Jadoon
    Asad Marwat - Vehicle : Mitsubishi Pajero - Navigator : Shahzad aka Pinks
    Qasim Saidhi - Vehicle : Mitsubishi Evolution - Navigator : Rizwan Buttar

    Will try and get some info on whats going on and request anyone else in the know of things to share photos, videos, news, updates, experiences, ramblings etc or anything that you may feel is relevant! Even if it isn't, lets make sure we keep this going as, make no mistake about it: Jhal Magsi is perhaps in many ways the only motorsport event of its kind in the world!

    Race Schedule:
    January 11, 2013 : Recce and Scruteneering
    January 12, 2013 : Qualification
    January 13, 2013 : Race and Prize Ceremony

    Best of Luck and a Safe Driving to all particpants! SK
    PS: Some Pics and Full Results Below. Thanks to all photograhpers and posters!

    ....but I just don't like people splashing into the Jhal River, its just rude if not disrespectful for the river and riverbeings not to mention zayadati with the vehicle!

    There are countless examples now of breakdowns during or after the river crossing and I would attribute half of them to the rapid water cooling (especially in case of thrash splash entry) of all parts of the vehicle after a massive endurance meltdown run across the high speed patts/straights. Even the "performance" parts on the vehicle (including the tires) are surely at their maximum temperature tolerance upon entry and by the time of exit they are probably close to their normal running temps. Only to be subjected to rock torture and dirt further abuse in the 25 or so remaining kms... Not even talking of water inhalation or electrical issues here, which are important no matter how new or well preppred the car like Birchu's Tacoma last year!

    The other half I would write down to superstition in the magical place that Jhal is! In any case, its just a terrible idea all around and nothing good can ever come off of it..... just my two requestful cents
    Well......................long question requires a long answer!

    Firstly, although Qasim will give his views separately....................but his words the night before the race was that hit the Mullah river at 100kmph, and it takes you almost halfway across before you are dead slow and the rest just bully thru in first gear!

    Qasim's theory on water crossing has changed from before and now it is somewhat similar to my thinking from before, i.e we do cross the small but fairly deep canal twice about 10-15 minutes before Mullah, so what ever damage can be done by hot cold hot cold is probably already done (the canal where you used low gear last time, when I crossed it this time, water came on top of my bonnet).

    2ndly, we had a long delebration well before Mulla river on how to cross, and Zohaib n I agreed finally decided to go steady in high first. The thing to note is that I was probably on the widest tyres of all the racers, 275s on 8 inch rim with HT type pattern. Now that is a lot of width to make way thru water. Anyway, we entered the water in first gear at speed around 25kmph, but we had harly made thru 1/4 width when we were dead slow and the engine was dying, so we stopped n shifted to low 1st and than upto low 2nd. Total crossing time with all for me by go pro was 34sec.

    And from experience, I know that if I hit water hard, somehow NPP air-intake cannot get air in and it just kills the rpm, happened on both of previous Jhal's. Bottom line the water splash wasn't intentional for me, but probably wide tyres make it look huge!

    Terrific photography, great results, and very heartening to hear that everyone's back safe and sound.

    Well done all around, gents.
    Always buy cars which your children love. They'll be helpful allies against your wife, later on!

    It was your guidance which helped me cross Mulla, remember the night before? You were telling me about sinking in Mulla
    I avoid driving Becharo above 2000rpm but in Mulla, halfway it started sinking, had to cross 3000rpm

    I beat you in Mulla
