1) Please ensure that you reach the meeting point on time, i.e., 7:00 AM sharp. Reaching 10 mins early would be better, but dont be late.  Also, ensure that you have tow points at the front and rear with 8 inch (min ground clearance)

2)  The senior members on Friday's drive would be @Niki and myself.

3) We will be using Carnity Channel 2 for the drive. (446.03125 Mhz). The instructions to program the radio are provided in the below post. Please ensure that you have a fully charged and programmed radio before the drive.

4) Safety flag, radio, shovel and compressor are mandatory. If you dont have one, we would have to send you back. 

5) All traction controls, ABS and Air bags need to be switched off. While turning off traction control is mandatory, its ok if you are unable to turn off the Airbags for this drive. Traction Control, ABS and Airbags can be disabled by a button or by pulling the fuse. Incase of any queries you can always ask me or the senior members before the drive or better still, post your queries on this drive post and we would assist. 

6) For highway tyres you can deflate to 15 psi. Those who have AT tyres, you can deflate to 13 psi. 

7) Feel free to ask questions at any time. 

8 ) Convoy Numbering will be posted on Thursday evening after 7 pm. Incase if you are unable to make it, please ensure you sign out of the drive before Thursday morning 9 AM.

We shall be starting the drive on some flat tracks and would build up the pace from there depending on the convoy response. We will be driving for about 3.5 hours practicing driving in sand, proper steering control, crossing some dunes, and getting you and your vehicle more familiarized with the desert.

By 11:00 am we will be heading out towards the Qudra Parking.


COVID is still very much there, so once you reach the meeting point, park your cars at sufficient distance from each other. Always wear your masks while stepping out of your cars. Once done deflating, please get back into your cars immediately. Drivers will be responsible for the compliance of their passengers as well.
