    NN Rally Report


    Lets get to the beginning………………………how the IJC rally team came into being. It was February 2010, and on an usual Saturday morning, I received a phone call from Desert Devil, …………Doc I am going for a sand run near Lawrencepur, do you wanna join, and I replied, I can’t, I have my clinic. He said cancel it, this will be super fun! Half-heartedly, I checked my appointments schedule and there was only one booking…………….which was duly cancelled! I called Redbull-AR and woke him up from sleep to come along join for some photography. Long storey short, we went there and did some very interesting sand runs, and it was then that Asad put forward this proposal of participating in upcoming Cholistan Jeep Rally. My instant response was sure, why not! There was lots of too and frooing and eventually it was decided two vehicles would participate, me and Kashif in TLC100 and Asad n Pinky in Jero 4d56. Burhan came along for support! Hectic preparation was carried out, before 2010, roll cages were not mandatory for hard top vehicles, but for 2010 they were! Ehsan Kiani built us an external roll cage as per requirement and we set off for the rally. That was one of the most memorable weekend with minimal sleep, lots and lots of adrenaline and camaraderie! Asad’s Jero tested our patience n stamina to the limit! Qasim Saidhi very kindly guided us in our very first rally. We both completed the rally and that was the start of Zabardast rally partnership, which continues to this day! <o:p></o:p>

    <o:p></o:p>
    IJC rally team has come a really long way since Cholistan 2010. For one reason or another, I was not able to participate in Cholistan rally again after 2010, until this year. But this year was extra special, this time we had six vehicles participating. And most of IJC clan came along for support of the rally team. We had our very own distinct rally camp and it was an amazing experience for all the gang! <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Some of our rally vehicles were transported on trailer from <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Islamabad</st1:place></st1:City>, while others drove theirs all the way to Cholistan. Asad is now working abroad, and came to <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Islamabad</st1:place></st1:City> a day before just to participate in the rally! We drove all in a convoy from <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Islamabad</st1:place></st1:City>. The journey began at 6am thursday, progress was steady, and we were having a scrumptious late lunch at Taj Hotel on GT road near <st1:place w:st="on">Bahawalpur</st1:place> at 4pm. However progress after that was rather slow, I was pulling our loaded luggage trolley behind NPP. On the way we lost our direction, courtesy the extra clever GPS, which wanted to take us to our destination thru some rather small / narrow streets, eventually which ended up in dead-end. Anyway, when we got to Ahmed Pur sharquia, the trolley leafsprings gave up, which needed to be sorted before we could proceed to the desert. After some struggle we found the right man, but it was almost 10pm by then. The man was alone and he went by the work at his own pace and it was over 4 hours before our trolley was sorted. Than the long dirt track / poor road to the desert. Eventually just after 3am I reached the camping destination. While we were getting the leafsprings sorted, most of the gang had proceeded to the desert and started the camping process. Zeb was our kitchen manager as usual, and he lighted up the fire and started the barbeque on coals, which in the freezing temps of desert was very welcome. Than came the hot tea after which I eventually retired in my camp at almost 5am.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Next morning I was up around 9ish. After just a cup of tea and unpacking rest of our stuff, Hasan Rana (my navigator) n I proceeded to the registration desk in main village. The registration and vehicle tech took some time. At 12 noon, we eventually decided that we should directly proceed for track recce. Some of the other IJC drivers had already been on recce, while remaining started after us. Halfway into first stage, we found Baber Khan’s recce vehicle (Irshad’s TLC40) broken down on the side just past CP5. So we waited there with him, trying to workout what’s wrong. Eventually Asad and Ali arrived on their recce run and Ali spent the next hour+ fixing the fuel line. Eventually after a delay of nearly three hours we proceeded on our recce. Unfortunately, soon the darkness set in and last third of recce was done in lights. Which is a different experience!<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    After reaching back the rally camp we had an early dinner at 7:30. Boy it was one tasty dinner, or could be the fact that we hadn’t had breakfast or lunch! All day we had few oranges and a biscuit packet and nestle water! Then we proceeded straight to the rally drivers meeting. Where after various discussions, the draw was taken out for the qualifying round firing order. This time round the qualifying order draw was according to various classes. The A class was first to do their runs and low n behold my name was called out for first. In the last 4 years I have started the qualifications round twice before, and was 2nd starter and 3rd starter once each. But then everyone realized that Nadir’s Magsi’s name slip was missing in the draw, and although he said he was fine to go in the end, the draw was re-done and I was 8th man out. While Zohaib was 6th, Suhaib Kiani 7th and Shabab 12th man out. Asad and Samad were in B category, so they went out later!<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Overall, as Suhaib mentioned, in qualifying, it was a great day out for IJCians, Shabab 2nd overall, Samad 9th overall, Zuhaib 14th overall and myself 18th overall…………………indeed an achievement to be proud of! With such good qualification’s there was obviously pressure as well. Strategies were discussed. I had decided on recce day to remove one of the two spare tyres on the back, because I had removed one leafspring too many from rear setup and the vehicle was bottoming out easily on jumps! Also after discussion with Suhaib and Rana Sumair Noon, we reduced tyre pressures down to 19psi front and 18psi rear in the evening. Early next morning the gauge showed these pressures to be 17psi front and 16psi rear, but I just left them as is!<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    The night sleep before the race was not as peaceful, and I got up from the noise of our support team at 5:15 am when they were leaving with fuel for our mid point break! Eventually I got out of my tent, and turned out Imtiaz was also outside unable to sleep. Probable nerves all round! We chatted for a bit, waiting for first light. Time passed slowly in freezing cold weather!<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Eventually at 7am things started up. Shabab, Zuhaib and Samad left for starting line around 7:20ish, while I left at 7:40 for the expected 8am start. As it is the start was delayed by 30 minutes. Slowly we waited for our turn. As I mentioned before, despite a checklist, we ended up not engaging the 4x4 at start line, and during the first 30+ minutes, I was blaming the lower tyre pressures for it. Anyway, despite everything we gave it our best shot, no point in what ifs afterwards! By the grace of Almighty we ran well overall and finished safely. Podium is always very nice but 12th overall out of 88 competitors is not a bad showing! During the race we managed successfully three overtaking manoeuvres over competing vehicles. Looking back, it’s my 8th participation in national rallies, and I have successfully completed all and without any mishaps! Eternally grateful to Almighty for all his blessings!<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    After return back to the camp, found out about various incidents with remaining IJCians. Everyone mashaallah was in excellent spirits, despite what ever. Mine n Asad’s timing were reasonably competitive, so we stayed back in Cholistan until official result was announced at 8pm. As luck would have it, we were both 5th in our respective categories. While we were waiting for the results, the rest of the gang had already pushed off towards <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Islamabad</st1:place></st1:City>. Eventually we left Cholistan around 9pm, driving NPP all the way back. Progress till <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Multan</st1:place></st1:City> was reasonably brisk. But than we hit the fog, and after that it was a struggle all the way till <st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">Faisalabad</st1:place></st1:City> until sun came out. At times we were moving at barely 20-30kmph. It was hard work, considering the whole rally and lack of sleep n all. By the grace of almighty we eventually made it back home safely by noon the next day! Some of the lads slept upto 15hours on the trot on return!<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    The whole trip was truly memorable, the camaraderie, the leg pulling, the pranks and all were just ongoing and will be remembered for a long time. All those who could not make were missed! Long live IJC! <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>

The other explanation is that the driver was just being lazy Also the course, when we got on it, was the most cut up course I have ever seen in three years, it soaked up a lot of power and was not easy going.



    Finally, in the words of top KOH racer and parts maker Tony Pelligrino "F**K IFS". I know this is not the Hammers, but either show me a better coil spring recovery or please stop with the kamani basheering!
    Yup, it's only u n me on this thread now!

    And yes, I will go with your lazy driver excuse!

    I have looked at mine again, it was the angle, I was also aiming leftish after hitting the first one, brief lift off............. easily corrected and that was it. Looked other parts of vdo as well, most booja hits are because one doesn't lift off to keep momentum going!

    It would be interesting to see any other on-board vdos, to see what others did?

    Not lifting off is an NPP specific issue perhaps, with UZi you have to let go or at least lift off slightly to control the car. Taking turns at full throttle is not really possible and even driving it straight at full throttle (even at slow speeds) was quite difficult as wheels would seem to lose traction quite easily. With open headers the UZi was a different animal altogether. It was not just better flow, but the ECU seems to have kicked into a different mode altogether. Consumption on all previous rallies was 3-4L per km but was down to 1.5-2L this year!

    Maybe we should move to the generic thread as Team Dew is completely naaraaz and not talking after being comprehensively defeated by Team IJC

    PS: Oops!! But I guess its only me and nn here. Nevertheless, precautionary razayee baandh lee jai ab

    Nahin! To be clear, sui phansi hai sponsorship pe

    Yeh Dew walon ko koi aisee gaaree bhee sponsor karnee chaheeyay thee jo unn ke profile ko suit karrey. Current line-up to dew peeyay baghair bhee bhag sakta hai, samajhne kee baat hai: "FJ40 chalana cholistan bhagana, lana hai dew-e-sheer ka"!

    nn, +400Nm is the magic number, i swear. we consciously decided not to use a chip (one less thing that can go wrong) even though ahsan had one on him. having driven this i can safely say this has more (read "much more") grunt than the stock 1KD, that too at only 2.5L and it is beautifully balanced. The damn thing has absolutely no body roll. ... it was unfortunate the clutch burnt up 40km into the 2nd stage.. (recce and race too much for the poor thing) lost +10 mins overall by my reckoning.

    also, we were running with ABS and overran a few sharp turns because of it... somehow the navaras 4x4 disengages when you disconnect the ABS...need to figure that one out
