@Zixuan Huang - Charlie Charlie if you remember last drive also I had the issue of the gear getting stiff towards latter part of the drives, It was assumed that the issue is related to the oil. I have taken it to the garage and they have opened the transmission and it appears that the fork assembly and first and second gear synchronisers needs to be changed. Parts are on 1 week order and they advised me if we close up and drive further while we wait for the parts there is a chance of damaging the other synchronisers as well. so I left the car there and hopefully it will be ready for the next weekend. 🙄

1- It is already hot and we want to have an early start hoping to cover majority of the track by 8:30am before heading to the exit to inflate by 9:00am before we get roasted.

2- This requires prompt presence at the meeting point by 4:30am and be ready to move max by 5:00am (deflated, flag erected, 4H on, radio on and set, airbags/traction/abs all set....) 

3- Please ensure your radio is on, fully charged, and set to the right frequency: channel 2 (446,031.25) upon arrival to do a quick radio check

4. when you arrive, pls try to take your position (if possible) based on the below convoy order

5- briefing will be done on the radio as we start moving

6- please ensure you come with a full tank (as much as possible) in addition to all necessary gear for this drive level

 

See you all on the sand 😎
