Hello

My name is Rawad and I drive a V8 Nissan Patrol 2019 Platinum 

I've some experience as I usually deflate the tires and go drift on the sand, or try a hard angle dune. Yet I still have 0 knowledge when it comes to dunes bashing, cresting, etc

I have a deflator gauge, a compressor, a rope with shackles

Super excited :)

Hello @Srikumar & Fellow members,

I am Jeetu and first time joiner (obvious one :) ) to this drive. 

Drive a 2018 Mitsubishi Pajero-LWB.

In terms of off-road experience, none practical but I have taken introduction to off road at Galadari (1 Hour class) a few months back.

Based on my limited knowledge the front and rear tow points are in perfect conditions
