  1. Hello all, I couldn't introduce myself last month when I joined, due to various factors. My name is Tharun Kumar V! I am originally from Bengaluru, India, but lived in several different countries and I am now based in Dubai, working with UD Trucks as Resident Eng. for MEENA. As a Resident Eng., my job is to help UD Truck's dealers and customer a reliable truck and of course to help them out whenever they’re in need of technical solution. Last June I moved to Dubai with my wife Ankitha and my daughter Shrestha. Ankitha was an interior designer and currently she is handling our naughty Shrestha who is just 16months old. Things keeps me calm are cars, bikes and trucks. Back in India I’m a member of Fiat 1100 Bangalore club. I do own a small fleet of cars and bikes starting from Fiat Select – 1959, Premier Padmini 1100 – 1992, Mercedes Benz W124 – 1992, Mahindra Scorpio – 2006, Toyota Qualis – 2001, Yezdi Road King – 1991, Bajaj Chetak – 1987 and Royal Enfield – 2010. I am a DIY person and would like to keep myself busy with my passions. Once I moved into Dubai, got my license in 21 days and picked a Mitsubishi Pajero sport from one of the marshals from another club, who is a friend of mine from India. How did I get to know Carnity???? This is an interesting topic for me. After a week of purchase of Mitsubishi Pajero sport, I had to go to meet the previous owner of the car in Sharjah to collect few parts. Surprisingly my car gear inhibitor failed, and I had to drive the car to a garage in Sharjah (this car was maintained in the same workshop by the previous owner). As I was waiting for the new inhibitor in the waiting lounge, I see a person and started to have a conversation about his Pajero and off roading. Apparently his Pajero had a starter motor failure, and he was waiting for a long time to secure the part. After a long discussion about off road and Carnity, I was so eager and I asked him, “if it is ok can I join Sunday morning drive?” and he happily asked me to join. So, my first drive as a passenger in Carnity was done on 7th August 2022. The person who introduced me to Carnity is @Gaurav Soni I was just waiting for my family to get adjusted to Dubai and then signed in to Carnity. Thanks a lot for the opportunity and with my one-month experience, I have started to discover many good things in Carnity. Carnity is not only a community, but it also feels like a family. Carnity not only teaches off-roading and its skill, but it also even improves our personal developments. Hope I have not bored everyone with my stories and introduction. I would like to meet every one in person during the drive. See you soon guys in the desert Thank you Regards Tharun Kumar V

  4. Dear desert friends. As of now we have the below list of names going and waitlisted. Hoping all to reconsider his participation in the drive. If you all insist, and hungry to be in sand, will plan a drive on Friday morning. Therefore, will ask you to mention which day you prefer to join, to start preparing the convoy orders. To do this, the following rules apply: - Priority to join Saturday drive will be for names already going. Will still be good to mention either a day Friday or Saturday, or flexible - The same apply for the support team please. Please mention which day you prefer to join - Friday drive will be FB as well - This is still an idea came to my mind trying to make all happy, I still have the right to cancel and stick to Saturday drive and get waitlisted names upset, unless another lead will support to split the drive on Saturday. - If all found prefer Saturday only, again idea will be cancelled - Any rule come to my mind, which like to apply 😂 Attendees DanielN @DanielN Bashar Beasha @Bashar Beasha Tharun Kumar V @Tharun Kumar V Waqar Sarwar @Waqar Sarwar Adam James @Adam James Ahmad Nerat @Ahmad Nerat premindra rajaram @premindra rajaram Bjoern @Bjoern Albarqawi85 @Albarqawi85 Frans M @Frans M Manage Hisham Masaad Vaibhav @Vaibhav Davie Chase @Davie Chase Waitlisted Attendees Mark Birch @Mark Birch Glenn W @Glenn W Krishna R @Krishna R Daniel Rodas @Daniel Rodas Yaseen87 @Yaseen87 Joji varghese @Joji varghese Gary F @Gary F Benjamin @Benjamin Nathan L @Nathan L Zubair @Zubair Sebb @Sebb Mohamad Anwer @Mohamad Anwer Chris Wing @Chris Wing Tareq Al Turq @Tareq Al Turq Look forward to hear from you at the earliest

  7. Congratulations @GauravSoni for reaching the Marshal level with Carnity Offroad Club. Gaurav Soni joined Carnity in late 2020 with his stock Pajero and curious nature to know and learn off-roading. His passion for off-roading and inquisitive nature made him learn a lot very quickly. With an open mind approach, he has understood the value of structure, experience, and training, and with a great helpful attitude towards all off-roaders, he has quickly positioned himself as an integral part of Team Carnity. With over 200+ drive experience and skills, he has taken on new challenges and tasted the maximum adrenaline offered at a higher level and pace of drive. His extreme passion for sand driving, leading and supporting off-road drives made him rise through the ranks to become a vital part of Carnity off-road club. His contribution and intelligent support behind the drives, planning and great teamwork were always been highly appreciated. MARSHAL is one of the most prestigious and sought-after titles that comes after a lot of hard work, patience, tolerance, and dedication. Just like all the levels in Carnity offroad club is "NOT" only based on driving skills but instead based on the combination of your personality + intelligence + team spirit + adventure. This Marshal title is an epitome for all levels in the offroad grading structure. So if anyone wants to grow, they can set any of Carnity Offroad Club Marshal as a PERFECT example for not only following the driving skills and style but also observing their behavior, teamwork, presence of mind, calculative approach, patience and tolerance to teach and support new offroaders.

  8. I recently bought a Y61 and i'm finding my social media algorithms aligning to it now. And i'm exposed to these tyres in the y61 community that can be vaguely described as balloon tyres (Airplane tyres?). Every since i was a kid, growing up in Dubai, i've always wondered about them. Why do they exist? How are they they better/worse than the favourites (G015, LTX Force, AT2, KO2 etc.)? Pros and cons. It's a bit hard find name brands on these, but some i've found are: Maxxis Desert Maxx / Maxxis 900.17 Sahara Tyres

  11. The 265/70 will definitely rub in the fenders. I would advise to keep the original 65 tyre height.
