    Most fun car ever?

    1997-1999 Mitsubishi Pajero 3.5 DOHC SWB - only car I have owned for 8+ year now because it gave me so much more than any other big-bang-ding-dang-decorated-famed-hyper-marketed 4x4 were unable to offer in a "STOCK STATE". Image credit: @hossein

    Saturday trips?

    Is there anyway to get trips on Saturday afternoons? Fridays am usually busy with personal matters and I’d hate to miss these trips. 😢

    Liwa Moreeb Drive - 25 Jan 2019

    Hey guys. Back from my trip! Quick question, didnt see any mention of Level here?
  18. Hi all. Just to update you on this issue - I have done the following on Friday: Bought Liqui Moly Engine Flush Plus and used it prior to oil change Changed oil to Mobil 0w40. I've been using this before (different car) and was suggested here Added Liqui Moly Hydraulic Lifter additive Said a little prayer prior to starting So I then started the car and to my surprise...... the sound was still there. I then said to myself, ok let's give this Dhs400 additional unexpected unplanned expense some time. Miracles do happen, I told myself. So by now the car has ran 250+kms since the oil change.... and the sound is still there. The issue with my car is not really consistent with what I've been reading about. During start-ups in the morning, the ticking sound is non-existent. As in none, no trace of it whatsoever. I warm up the engine for a good 5 minutes and still no sound. Only after reaching work (45kms and 30mins drive) do I notice the sound. For sure it started earlier, but obviously I can't stick my head out and listen to the engine while driving just to wait for the sound to come. In short, perhaps its something else? The lifter theory makes sense but is the complete opposite for my car as it only comes AFTER the car is warmed up. But the sound it makes is identical to what a lifter tap tap sound should be and comes from the top of the engine (70% sure of this). But then my expertise on this is only based on what the interwebs tell me. And despite good offers from guys here in Carnity to check the car, I can't seem to find time to take them up on their goodwill as my schedule doesn't permit. I've gone to lengths such as when I see a Pajero on the street parked with engine running, I walk near it to listen if it has the same sound. Fortunately (or not), some have them in varying tunes/pitch and some don't (mostly the new ones). So this is still a head scratcher for me. Should I go to Habtoor and bite the bullet and have this checked? I am ok to pay them just to check as long as the amount is reasonable and the diagnosis is correct. I can then get it fixed outside. What say you?

    Most fun car ever?

    2000 Jeep Cherokee. You dont need to worry if anything happens to it. Simple i was leaving it inside the construction site with bunch of trucks and machines around it. With my new benz i am parking 2 blocks away to keep it safe. When i was driving Cherokee i was the trouble guy on the road. No need to flash, people will move if you get enough close or just think there is no one infront of you sure it will be empty soon. With benz i am the tiny car between all Patrols and Cruisers. You can save the people got stuck on the beach. Many many things. Oh god that was the best car i have ever had.
  23. Great day, but a little spoiler as I got delayed due to car starting troubles. My sincere thanks to @skumar83 / @Asif Hussain and @EmVarlet for taking the floor and presenting the most important information for anybody joining for the first time. By the time I reach everybody was edging to get into the sands and was looking forward to the drive. After a quick deflation and convoy numbering we were off. A big thanks to @BIG T for being my second lead, he understood the terrain very well and managed teh second lead position with great application of whatever has been thought to him so far. Thanks to @Per A for being an absolute fantastic passenger to @Asif Hussain and was open to discuss about his new ride to be. @srini62 just amazed me with his new form in the desert, I was surprised to see him keep up all the way. Thanks to @g.huz and @yogic for being enthusiastic and willing to learn. Special thanks to @hossein for bringing his family out for some off-road fun. It was a quick 40 minutes ride to Pink Rocks and everybody injoyed climbing the Pink Rocks in one go. Here the level was increased slightly and everybody managed well right until our little corner for snacks and chats. Everybody bought so many food types it was difficult to decide which one to have first. After we packed up Asif bhai hadd to leave, but the rest we still edging to get 30 - 40 minutes more in the desert, except for Taimur and his brother who were ready for another 5 hours drive. So we played around the Big Red. Just at the time we were supposed to exit we saw 3 girls who were struggling with a van, so we all got together and helped them out and on their way back with a generous smile. Loved the day, the drive, the people, the food and everything in between. until next time Adios Amigos.

    Most fun car ever?

    What was the most fun car you ever owned? Ive had a lot of fast and expensive stuff, but the most fun car I’ve ever owned was a 1.1 Peugeot 106. Paid £50 for it at a scrapyard so all mechanical sympathy went out the window. I didn’t care if it broke or got crashed. Wasn’t even a nice one, it was a snot green 5 door. Had a lot of fun thrashing the tiny engine and listening to it scream for help in narrow mountain passes, putting it on 2 wheels at every opportunity. Was a little beast for lift off oversteer. What killed the fun was cutting the top and bottom of the steering wheel off to make it like KITT from Knight Rider and basically turning it into a boat tiller. Driving with anything less than a full steering wheel is difficult to say the least.
