  1. Thank you everyone for a smashing morning. @Frederic @GauravSoni @Amr Aydin @Alexanderrr @Simon Dawood @Zed @Waqas Parvez @ASAD. @Vaibhav@DP1011 , Deepak wrangler @Anoop Nair @Tom B @Looper The heavy fog gave us all the rare moment where we could spend sometime having a few good laughs and chats, getting to know each other a little better. After loosing almost 2 hours of the planned drive time when the sun came out, it was in it's full glory creating TBH a pretty unbearable weather. However, with us able to start the drive it was just a little bump on what otherwise was a perfect day. As we were approaching Old Lady Dune to take in her blessing @GauravSoni messaged on the radio that his car was having issues. Since we were starting the drive already pretty late it was decided that's it would be best for him to exit out. Hope the issue is a minor one and that things are fixed pretty soon.. After Gaurav's exit we headed East closer to Al Ain airport where we were treated to 2 absolutely beautiful bowls. If the weather was not hot enough you could feel the added heat of each driver trying to climb higher and faster than the previous. ๐Ÿ˜‚ What followed after was probably the best session of fast paced offroading I have been a part off. The criss crossings, sharp ridges, rolling dunes along with a fantastic bunch of drivers gave me the freedom to really push the limit. With the weather getting increasingly hot and since we had already offshot our planned exit time, it was decided to head to the tarmac. Thank you @Looper for taking care of the sweep duties, with so many heavy bulldozers in the convoys I am sure there would have been no tracks remaining. But it was very reassuring to know that you were at the back of a very long convoy. Finally to my very close buddy @Frederic thank you for joining this drive. It has been way too long since we have driven together on an IM drive. The moment you mentioned last Sunday that you were going to join, I was doubly excited for today's drive. We were only missing our 3rd musketeer @Gaurav, hopefully we can have another drive soon with all of us in it. Thank you Sweihan boys once again. Take care.

  2. Hi all, Nathan here. new to carnity and to the dunes, have done a few drives now with the club as a newbie and having a blast. have a bit of experience off road but mostly mud/rock and winch work, most of my sand experience has been on the sand island in Australia. Very different to our desert here. I have picked up a old abused SWB Pajero that I am slowly fixing up, hopefully it will become a capable and reliable drive. thanks for having me in the club, been great so far and looking forward to picking up new skills with you all on the dunes. cheers, Nathan

  3. Congratulations @M.Seidam for reaching the Marshal level with Carnity Offroad Club. Seidam joined Carnity in mid-2020 with his Jeep Grand Cherokee and great enthusiasm for off-roading. Later it got upgraded to Xterra to continue the passion and excitement to conquer every dune. With a very inquisitive nature, Seidam has learned and mastered many skills very quickly and always supported everyone. Exploring new areas and pushing new boundaries made him a seasoned off-roader with good knowledge and experience. With a prudent and cautious approach, he very well established his leading skills and tasteful drives to position himself as an integral part of the carnity family. 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.

  4. Having been out of the sand for most of summer, I was eagerly looking around for a drive that would ยซ recalibrate ยซ my senses and skills, and whatโ€™s better for that than a drive with @Srikumar ๐Ÿ˜…. While I do indeed prefer lower level drives as for me I need something ยซ slow ยป on the weekend to relax after a grueling work week, I have to admit that this kind of drive somewhat relaxed me as well. Of course i was sitting on the edge of my seat, but you really have 0 time to think of anything else than revving your ride and trying to follow that mean green XJ machine ๐Ÿ˜… Brilliant driving by all of you, and i was glad to see the camaraderie amongst all of you; cheering each other on and having each otherโ€™s back. Thatโ€™s what I love seeing in these kinds of drives ! Towards the end of the drive it was getting extremely hot, and after inflating i quickly got on the road, feeling overheated and lightheaded. Sorry for not staying back for a chat as I usually do. Really looking forward to more of this the coming winter.. See you all in the sand soon !!

  5. @Benjamin @Marcin Wronowski @Murad Hamed @Jaro Tuzinsky @Mike. @TT_Dubai @Joseph Sebastian @Jonny90 @Harshal @Fabien Monleau thank you all for joining today's drive. It was an eventful drive from the time we started with the sand being wet on the surface and extremely soft a few inches below. For most of you it was probably the first time driving on a surface like that and for the most part you all coped really well. @Fabien MonleauI can't thank you enough for all the help with the 5 pop outs we had. It was a masterclass on fixing pop outs for those who were around helping. @TT_DubaiThanks for keeping an eye on the convoy and for the help on refusals in the middle. @Murad Hamedit was unfortunate what happened and really glad you came out of it unhurt. For those who were on the side it happened, the 10 seconds of seeing the car roll felt like an eternity. Please get yourself checked again if you feel any pain and let me know if I can be of any help. Hope everything goes well with the insurance too. Thanks to everyone for the help and patience today. I hope this unfortunate incident explains why every lead stresses on certain things during the briefing. The desert is unpredictable and a lapse in judgement or concentration for a split second can have dire consequences. Special shout out to @Benjaminfor staying till the end and even dropping Murad back home. Truly appreciated buddy. Thank you. You did really well in the second lead position as well, just what was need. Well done . Hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend and see you'll in the sand soon.

  6. Hi @Nathan L thanks for the great introduction ! We met on our last scenic drive. Youโ€™ve got yourself a nice Pajero there. They are so much fun and extremely reliable if you give them some love. Looking forward to driving and socializing together the coming winter ! See you soon in the sand !

  7. Thank you all for joining the drive. All made it almost on time, and got ready for a quick brief. Immediately started our adventure climbing dunes next to the meeting point, and moved through Techincal area to reach the next group of amazing dunes, to start again climbing, till we had the first and only situation, where @Ranjan Das car decided not to continue, and stopped. Waited for sometime trying to run the car, but failed. Decision made then to pull the car out, and could not refuse the offer of @Karthik Raptor to handle this challenge, and was really successful. Big thanks to Karthik for a big and appreciated valuable help. Another big thanks and appreciation for our marshal @Islam Solimanfor joint the drive and the support and guidance through out the drive and pulling out the car. @Imteeaz amazing SL, specially first time in this area, and second IM drive. You did very well, and encouraged me to push the level. Thank you all for offering the support and guidance to get out safely. At the end all left the drive with a smile, best wishes, promises and hopes to meet again. Well done @Sunil Mathew @Simon Dawood @MMansoor @ASAD. @Vaibhav @Mohamad Anwer and @Waqas Parvez. Wish you a nice weekend, and good week ahead. Regards

  8. Hi @Brette thank you for organising todays drive. Your leadership skills were put to the test today, for what should have been a relatively straightforward drive, it was anything but that! @Murad Hamed you handled the situation so well. All that matters is that you are ok. I know as the dust settles you will be extremely upset, but just remember your going home to your family! @Fabien Monleau your support was the best yet. 5 x pop outs fixed in double quick time. @Brette, there is a reason I look for your drives, today was a master class in staying calmโ€ฆ.legend! @Benjamin, well done mate! Really impressed on the last 2 drives weโ€™ve been on! Take care guys - Jonny

  10. @Srikumar great drive as usual, took me some time to get my breath back once i reached home and im sure it was the same for others. We more than made up for the lost time in the beginning due to fog. with steep climbs, bowls and criss-crossing ridges this had everything we could ask for. so glad to have finally met @Frederic after almost 10 months with carnity, nice chatting with you and thank you for being the 2L. @Vaibhav @Looper @DP1011 , Deepak wrangler @Anoop Nair im sorrry the wranglers had a tough day today, maybe you guys need to think of upping your game a bit, for it was only @Vaibhav's lending of compressor to @Zedwhich provided some face saving ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Glad to see you all nevertheless & @Looper thanks for the sweep. @Simon Dawood @Amr Aydin @Alexanderrr great job right at the front, i can imagine how challenging it would be to keep up with Sri & fredie. @Zed thanks for clearing all the bushes infront of me ๐Ÿ˜ @Waqas Parvez great driving buddy, i know some ppl (or atleast 1) who would be envying what you can do in that prado ๐Ÿ˜†. Will wait for you to share some of those video shots from your insta. @Tom B good to see you as usual man. Good luck on the liwa trip, will definitely look forward to hearing back from you. @Gaurav Soni i hope you made it back safely and not too much trouble with the car. Was wonderful chatting to you all in the morning while we waited for the fog to clear up, hopefully more such opportunities coming up this season. See you all soon.

  11. What a way to complete my 50th drive with Carnity under lead of @Srikumar.With initial hiccup of Fog where we had to delay the drive and @Gaurav Sonihaving issue with his car which I hope is not too serious .Like I mentioned previously having 2 legends of Carnity in the drive would definitely be really fun. Though the drive was delayed we did share some funny moments and knowledge. The convoy drove amazingly. @Frederic your presence as 2nd lead made the convoy stronger and gave some motivation for Sri to push. @Amr Aydindrove really well being your first intermediate drive. Pajero Boys @Alexanderrrand @Simon Dawood pushed their cars really well and kept the momentum, @Zed It was good to see you in the LC without the rear bumper โ˜บ๏ธ and thank you for pushing. Prado Boys @ASAD.and @Waqas ParvezThank you for churning the sand for me. @Anoop Nair Good job with the Jeep with missing fender. Hope you get the beautiful jeep is back at its original beauty. @DP1011 , Deepak wranglerExcellent driving buddy. enjoy you break. @Tom B I could see the smile at the end of the drive you thoroughly enjoyed the drive. @Looperthanks for taking care at the back as a sweep. Hope to see everyone in the sand soon.

  12. Dear all, First of all thank you all for the support you provided to me today, i felt zero pressure because of that. Truly when the ambulance guys checked my BP it was 120/80 . I met most of you for the first time today and I already felt like with family who care. The good news, i have finally managed to get the car out by driving it to outside , yes i drove through the dunes with a smashed /half pajero in the dark night , to be honest it was as tough as the roll-over experience, then i managed to put it on recovery after police has given the report finally. Thanks again to everyone, Special thanks to @Benjamin for driving me home at noon, @Brette for staying back in person and over the phone @Gaurav for support over the phone to make sure all going well wish you all safe drive and definitely i will see you again on sand soon (not sure what car this time will be

  17. i have 2 statements to make: 1. The drive was excellent today, there were no deadly steps to avoid, so I didn't lose anything today and my front bumper was intact ๐Ÿ˜ Well done Marshal @Srikumar ๐Ÿซก (salute emoji) 2. For some good reason, instead of popping-out, my BeadGrip wheels and wide tires tend to "lose air" when badly impacted from the sidewalls, resulting in 6psi and needed some air for driving safely. If it was not for @Vaibhav's on-board compressor, the drive would be further delayed as I have to take out my bulky compressor, attach wires, etc. Thanks bro ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป These statements are made from my own accord, without any coercion or endorsement from anyone ๐Ÿ˜‚ Too bad I didn't have to tug anyone with the LC, but that's also a testament of how good everyone drives in the convoy today ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป well done everyone ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป Mr @Waqas Parvez i hope you made it on time and didn't start a World War 3 ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

  18. Hey @Mehmet Volgaโ€ฆ after riding the dunes for about 100+ drives, I went for Dobinsons MRA suspensions with 30 mm spacers to avoid hitting the reservoir installed in the wheel archโ€ฆ the car now sits at 2 inch lift with the heavy springs which kinda gives a good look overall.. The MRAโ€™s is what Dobinson a refer as stage 4, with knobs provided to adjust the settings to make it hard/ soft. I personally have found a sweet spot setting for on and off road. Riding the ridges is more comfortable with good clearance and it can take those steep small steps we end up finding while leading.. one major change I felt is the reduced dashboard rattle on speeds >60 on the serrated sabka tracks๐Ÿ˜‚.. i did crack one of my suspension bush which was replaced by the shop. These will get your pockets lighter by almost 8.5k along with spacers (H&R). One another note , There is a slight vibration that I get when driving on road at 90-110 which my mechanic says is due to change in transmission shaft angle cos of the lift. M not sure if @Alexanderrr @Simon Dawood @Mus_hus78 have experienced it yet. overall I am happy with the experience so far!

  22. Brilliant drive this morning @Srikumar. The last hour and half was absolutely superb. The regular radio messages shouting "floor it" "floor it" gives an indication of how much we were pushing. I really enjoy this area and it well worth the drive. @Frederic great job as 2L. As @Vaibhav says, having you as 2L no doubt gave @Srikumar that added confidence to push the convoy. @Looper great support at the back. And to everyone else, well driven! No doubt see you all soon.

  25. Great adventure @Hisham Masaadand great support from SL @Imteeazyou were driving the Vitec beautifuly Great support from @Islam Solimanand great towing by @Karthik Raptor Nice to see the usual suspects on a drive that was going so well until the unfortunate issues with the Wrangler @Ranjan DasI hope the issue turns out to be something minor and silly, please do let us know the outcome. @Waqas Parvezwe have to break the Shuwaib spell bro somehow ๐Ÿ˜’ ๐Ÿ˜‘ ๐Ÿ™„ To the rest of the team , great driving with very little refusals, except for @Simon Dawoodgetting stuck, I am sure, just to entertain us, and keep us busy while Hisham and Islam were trying to find an easier route for the Raptor to tow the wrangler ! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. @Ranjan DasHopefully your car problem is a minor one. Since wranglers are known for their dependability and yours was specifically maintained by trading enterprises, it was unexpected. @Hisham Masaadreload had never been reloaded with back-to-back breakdowns, so we need to figure out the code and finish the drive successfully ๐Ÿ˜€

  27. @Fabien Monleau @TT_Dubai thanks a lot for today! Fabien next time Iโ€™m thinking of recording your times of handling a pop out because you were almost at Formula one level with Pit Stop execution precision. Thanks again! @Brettealmost everyone can hoist a sail in calm waters. It takes real leadership to sail in stormy weather. With 5 pop outs and the unfortunate event at the end, you made everyone feel that you were not even breaking a sweat. For someone who is โ€œrelatively newโ€ to this sport, it makes a difference and I am sure the same applies for everyone else in the convoy. @Murad Hamed so sorry to see what happened to you today but most important is you came out without a scratch which is what REALLY matters. You have nerves of steel man to handle it the way you did. I hope to see you again on the sand soon!

  28. Wonderful mid week drive @Ale Vallecchi, as expected, a long range drive with 68Kms in 3.5 hrs on the stats! with a stopped time of only 32 min including my unfortunate pop out!! Took me 78 drives to experience a pop out, and didn't recognize that i was having one , kept on suspecting my diff lock not disengaging, until i peeked out of the window Anyway its a lesson learnt with my changed ride being longer with a heavier rear end, and driving with 9 psi may not be a great idea anymore...will get to the sweet spot soon. Given the soft sand, and short and steep crossings at many places, we had our share of refusals and couple of tugs, but everyone drove well for the higher and longer climbs Thanks for the assistance with my pop out @Fabien Monleau, @Waqas Parvez @GauravSoni- and great overall support where required Good to see you again @Senthil Kumar - you are almost a regular for mid week drives, see you soon @Ashutosh Garg - we drove together last weekend as well, good to see you again @Imran Kashif - coming all the way from abu dhabi - appreciate your commitment to this sport, always ready to help with any situation, hope you get your flag back from the car wash guys and @DP1011 , Deepak wrangler - nice to drive with you again Looking forward and coming back for more!!

  29. I have been doing some small research after noticing the performance specs differences on the following 4.0 L Toyota models below as i was trying to understand why some are rated at 230hp while others were showing 260-270 hp in their datasheets. - Toyota Prado / Landcruiser: Single VVT-i till 2009, Dual VVT-i was implemented on the new model of 2010 onwards. - Toyota FJ Cruiser: Single VVT-i till 2009, Dual VVT-i was implemented on the new model of 2010 onwards. - Toyota Hilux 4.0 (Adventure Series): No 4.0 model available until 2021, until Adventure Series came with 4.0 V6 Single VVT-i - Toyota Fortuner: Single VVT-i only. I noticed prior to 2010, the FJ cruiser had a Single VVT-i setup, (variable valve technology on the intake only), while from 2010 onwards the FJ received Dual VVT-i technology (variable valve technology on exhaust side as well). This update resulted in about 21hp more power, but on the other hand, the max power is sitting on a higher rpm and the torque is a bit less. To my surprise i have noticed the current 4.0 Fortuner and Hilux Adventure models are still showing the single VVT-i specs, which makes me suspect they are doing this to keep the production cost down. Adding to the confusion, the Landcruiser 70 Series 4.0 V6 even has lower output. 228 HP / 360 Nm. Of course in real life situations and performing in the desert we need to look at many other things, but i wanted to put this article here to get a better understanding on the differences and to advice if you are planning to buy an FJ secondhand, it would make sense to go for the 2010 model and upwards. 1GR-FE_Engine[1].pdf

  31. By the end of the day, after all the trouble of waking up early, traveling slowly due to fog, and patiently waiting for fog to clear, we all had the biggest smiles on our faces. I had the best drive of my life thanks to @Srikumar, who led the convoy with enthusiasm and showed how much he loves what he does. His eyes used to light up when he saw a large dune, and he would root and say, "Floor it guys!" ๐Ÿ™‚ We also had amazing support of @Frederic as SL and @Looper at the back,its was great catching up with all early morning and chit-chating @Gaurav Soni i hope your car gets fixed quick and its not again one of yours MAF sensors ๐Ÿ™‚ @Vaibhav at the back and @ASAD. i was just enjoying my drive as i trust these guyz @DP1011 , Deepak wrangler you drove beautifully pushing your rubicon to the limits excellent line and control displayed well done @Alexanderrr @Simon Dawood excellent job keep up to frederic you guyz really pushed your Pajero to the limits @Amr Aydin only one with comes in my mind when see you drive, you are a Smooth operator ๐Ÿ™‚ @Zed yes i did manage to get back home in time to ensure that i enjoy the rest of the weekend ๐Ÿ˜€,its was really fun driving with you and hear that V8 roaring @Anoop Nair @Tom B once again it was fun driving with you big guyz.

  32. @JeromeFJ- That was an amazing track. It was my first time to be with you while you led the drive @Mike. 2nd lead of the game very well executed, @Benjamin, @Zubair In spite of the fact that it was your first fewbie drive, you guys drove excellent. @Jaro Tuzinsky Although the stuck workout was challenging, but your self-recovery was greatly appreciated. @Brett Eicher, It is a pleasure to see a classic Cherokee and an excellent driven by you @Jonny90, been with you in your earlier drives, u should have enjoyed this drive too. @Joji varghese Since I've been with you for more than 50 drives, I don't know what to say. It shows how much experience and control you have when driving. @Brette, It was really long to see you in desert, no words on the drive, but I'm glad to see you in Beard. New Look Suits you!!!

  33. My first Newbie Lead , Drive report Now I know why leading a Newbie/Absolute Newbie level is , I would say not difficult but unique. understanding and building a trust between the lead and the fellow new drivers is crucial to the success of this first drive to them. No less is the rule of the support team on board. I was honoured having Dr @Chaitanya D and @Mehmet Volga supporting me in this drive from the start till the end whom without their calm approach and cool smile This drive wouldnโ€™t be possible. Extending my sincere thanks to @imranaasghar81 an experienced intermediate driver who was at the tail of the convoy keeping a watchful eye that no one is left behind as well as contributing effectively in the recovery of a stuck situation of one of our friends. equally i must say thank you to every one who showed up even ahead of time to the meeting point almost ready and who shared their passion and thoughts about todays drive and did more than great even for the completely new ones. After checking on every driver and his own vehicle as well as checking the two way communication is set we moved on the track till we entered the huge sabkha where we stoped and an intensive briefing took place clarifying the important safety points pertained to this level and emphasising on the communication and convoy discipline to be maintained at all time. Then we headed to conquer the desert ๐ŸŒต Coming from leading higher levels I needed to recalibrate my style and the route helped in that the many times assisting in such drives and the pre drive discussed preparation but more than that the continuous support of all team during the whole drive ๐Ÿ™ I hope the aim was accomplished so for the new ones could have the chance to initially get acquainted with their own machines in the safest possible driving environment like the desert which by all mean is far different than driving on the tarmac. Itโ€™s just the beginning so if you have got already hooked ( like I and many did ) prepare your self for more exciting drives to come taking the off road ladder step by step. @Khyber as for first time in the sand I believe you did very well. Well done . It was pleasure meeting you. @Lucasfirst time in a convoy .coming from quite far ahead of time revealed the spark of enthusiasm for this team sport. You gave opportunity to others with your crest and we deal with it. Your calmness and clear communication was noticeable.very well done ๐Ÿ‘. @Salvador Perez very well trial of self recovery but donโ€™t worry with practice you will become more better in it . It was pleasure meeting for first time . @Karthik Raptor what a pleasure seeing you driving the Jimny today , you proved itโ€™s always the driver who steers the wheel even if it was a โ€œ mini raptor โ€œ ๐Ÿ˜… @Nathan L and @Brett E guys you did more than wonderful today .

  34. I got back to the sands after a long time and as usual learned a lot, only this time not so much about driving as on how to cope with the unexpected. @Brette showed how to remain calm and think clearly to get the important things done, great lesson in leadership. @Murad Hamed showed how to keep a sense of humor and a level temperament after something which would leave most in shock (did you really drive that car to the road later - thats unbelievable man). @Fabien Monleau , @Benjamin and @TT_Dubai showed how to do perfect support with infinite patience. Overall, the teamwork and camaraderie all around showed why @Carnity is such a good club. Looking forward to the next ride with you folks.

  35. @Hisham Masaadi would like to thank you for an amazing drive in the initial part. The drive was going really awesome but we had to stop the fun as or brother @Ranjan Dascar decided to give up. As I am also Jeep owner I learnt a lot from this drive. Thank you @Islam Soliman Your presence made such a difference in the drive and also in the recovery. If it was not for you I am sure @Hisham Masaadwould have a big challenge specially keeping an eye on @Ranjan Das car from behind.@Karthik Raptor good job. The beauty you have easily took care of the jeep. @MMansoorif it was not with your past experience finding the cord it would have definitely taken some amount of time. @Waqas Parvez after Islam went ahead you took great care of the sweep and tugging out @Simon Dawoodis a right way. @Mohamad Anwer the feeling you had initially about something wrong going to happen even I had it where I fell sick in between the drive. Though I wanted to leave early I could not leave my brothers and managed to have lot of liquid to keep me going. @ASAD. @Imteeaz @Simon Dawood and everyone inshallah we will conquer Shuwaib soon . Special thanks @Abdelghanifor the coffee.

  36. Although sad to hear about the roll today, but really glad and relieved that you were unharmed after seeing such big damage to your car. For insurance, after seeing a tall claim, they might make some additional delay, so be very firm with them from the beginning and do a close follow-up. In some cases I have heard they take 2-3 months and harass owners with so many different reports, revisit and third-party investigations. Technically they don't need anything other than cops report, so tell them to speak to cops if they wanna add any additional twist, it really works.

  44. Hi @Nathan L, welcome to a family-like community. I am sure you have felt the warm welcome from the start and this will will continue throughout your journey in @Carnity. As a proud Pajero owner, rest assured that it is an unstoppable car. I am no expert driver (Yet) but I have been enjoying the journey to date. One piece of advice I can give you is itโ€™s always 20% car and 80% skills, regardless of what car you drive. Make sure you pick the brains of every single lead in every drive, listen, watch and enjoy your journey as you grow week after week. Welcome on board!
