Hello guys, Thank you all for a wonderful day offroading and you guys were amazing today. Everyone showed up on time and we had  to wait for @Abdul Rafay-S car to reach .we had a smooth start and rarely had any troubles.  The only break we had was when we had to deal with the torn off tire. Thanks to @Brette for the selection of the area and terrain, We had everything to entertain and practice our driving skills from technical soft patches, some super sideys to high climbs @Sunil Mathewexecuted the role of the second lead to perfection.Did very well👍. @Miguel Codes did superb with you wrangler and had no issues at all @Zixuan Huang - Charliehandled his pathfinder very well today and I am sorry about your bumper and inner fender.

Thank you @Brette for the wonderful drive. Your initial briefing said that the drive would be slow as the wind was playing spoil sport and there were lot of soft patches. This gave me some solace as it was 2 weeks since my last drive as I skipped drives last week and was already feeling a bit rusty 😀, plus it was my first fewbie second lead. The drive turned out to be a great one with a right mix of everything. 
 

I need to apologise to the rest of the convoy, as I had multiple refusals due to my car cutting off power, I had my OBD scanner connected full time during the drive and saw that during short steep climbs , my engine load was reaching 100% which obviously would result in power cut offs. Coolant temperatures were fine and never went above 110 degC. 
 

did a google search and it seems there are plenty of reasons why this happens, and not sure where to start 😃..will keep this under observation 

good driving with you guys @Miguel Codes - thanks for the advices, @Zixuan Huang - Charlie - our paths cross again , @Abdul Rafay-S, @darren thompson, @Paul Zeitoun

thanks @Shaaz Sha for sweeping the convoy, the drive report and the encouraging words on my second lead 

Looking forward and coming back for more!!!
