I was just wondering since this is a multicultural and multinational group , in the wake of current health situation gripping he whole world (corona Pandemic declared by WHO). It will be prudent to follow some basic steps - I hope the organizers agree on this

- please refrain from joining if you have any symptoms of upper respiratory infection,cough or fever and get yourself checked with a Dr

- avoid hand shakes and touching faces without washing or using sanitizer

I hope this is taken in right spirit. Let us take care of our health and those whom we all care

 

Hi @Chaitanya D

Thanks for your message. I will consult with our seniors to see if we can make a general topic announcement on this to highlight this better.

@Frederic no worries. Got a crony 777 sometime back from Dragon Mart. Are there specific frequencies I can refer to, for the drive to try tuning it.

Hi @Nitin Mohan Please have a look at below advice that shows our Carnity frequencies and how to program them into your MT777:

@Frederic as its my first time, would you have a spare radio for Friday? Or should I buy one already?

No worries @Anouar Anouar, absolute newbies are being given a spare radio. Only from second drive onwards the offroader should obtain his own radio. 

See you on Friday !

      Join Carnity Offroad Club for a Thrilling Drive in the white sands of Al Faqa.
      For new fewbies, it's time to see the difference between new levels and for old fewbies it's time to see what a great technical challenge small and cute looking dunes can offer. 
      Al Faqa white sands is not for faint hearted and not for hyper excited drivers, as it will test your precision control and tolerance to the max. Slight misjudgment will cause an instant refusal/stuck on one hand and over excitement might cost you a bumper on another hand.
      WHAT ITEMS SHOULD I BRING?
      You should be equipped with the Essential Tools listed in the attachment below. If any of these tools are not in your possession you can be rejected from joining this drive.
