@MitsuMan: Many thanks for the compliments!
@DeeDee: No lift as yet! We have not put in the twin turbos
@qwertypoiu: Yes, the suspension needs more work in the short term and lots more cash in the long term! My impression is that sprung setups need position sensing/triple bypass shocks to truly overcome their limitations.... Nevertheless, the sand runs (full vids will come through hopefully) were not as bad as I was dreading they would be.....We need a bit more lift with better bump stops and probably double the shocks with a set of adjustable Ranchos. But although we will tweak things a bit for the rally, from experience, our desi leaf spring suspensions take time and a bit of abuse to settle in for optimal performance.
Special thanks to Janj, Doc nn and Ali for taking the time to shoot and edit the videos. Also hats off to Rao and Usama for keeping the navigator seat occupied and bearing the cold frontal wind attack!
