  1. Metal bumpers arent allowed by RTA unless they have two rubber kind of bump stops in front. Suspension has no issue with RTA within reasonable parameter of couple of inches lift and not like a monster lift of 2 feet high. Tires should be inside the fender, if they protrude out, they will fail most likely.
  2. That above Xterra is not mine, its shamil car. I had swb Patrol from 2008 - 2010 Since 2010 I'm happy with Pajero V25W.
  3. Copyright infringement of Leaders Lead last session - recovery drive module, lololol. Jokes apart very good idea Richard to let everyone know, practise and start believing that skills are FAR above full gas attitude and power mods.

  6. Wish you and your family good luck @Tero Vallas for the new endeavors. Surely you will be missed, I guess mostly on Emmanuel's Extreme drive which has become your regular feature lately.
  7. @Aravind Sidhardhan hope you have gone through above change of drive location from Sweihan to Khatim...? Please confirm.
  8. I never commented anything on the "level" of silicone fluid. On call too I mentioned that if any traces of leak is there then topping up silicone fluid can service the clutch. Now level is another issue that can only be answered by Nissan engineers who knows why they are keeping fluid level so low, probably that depends on when clutch should engage vs not - just my educated guesswork here.
  9. Viscose clutch fan doesn't work like a PWM controller to operate fan at variable speeds. To best of my knowledge they either fully engage the clutch (100% crank pulley speed) or not (40-50-60% depending on manufacture design). They might take few seconds to engage and disengage from 50-100% same way thermostat open and close in slow motion. BUT once engine bay temp hits the set degree required, they remain open. Water pump is mostly running 1:1 irrespective of the fan clutch engage or not as pulley and belts move at same rate without any interaction with silicon fluid inside the visc

  13. Very important point mentioned by @Srikumar to not to use "Half-Clutch" in sand. To explain more, half-clutch on road seems more responsive, but on sand as you don't get the precise feel you tend to overdo and burn the clutch within 5 min of self recovery attempt. In such scenario you can using the manual gear (real advantage) to jerk the car and let it stall few times when you practice this and master. This is how exactly you can create a super awesome jerk for self recovery: Engage in LO gear Put gear on first With clutch fully pressed, rev up to 2k rpm in short
  14. Wrangler YJ are very good and reliable off-roader. If you have got it checked with off-road specialist garage then its absolutely fine to join this Absolute Newbie drive. In fact this AN drive is perfect as you wouldn't need to push car too much on AN but as you progress more you will be extracting every inch of HP from your YJ. Just keep a constant eye on heat gauge needle, if it move upward then switch off aircon and drive.

  18. Up until last year RSA insurance were using credit card number and CVC on the phone to process the transaction, the most scariest thing to get CC details in wrong hands. Usually the companies aren't bad, but the way they handle the CC information makes me scare and run away. If I'm using online I always check the https and padlock sign first: And then second, if they are using at least 128 bit encryption, 256 is better. Without these two it means information is going like a notepad file that anyone can see all auth data. The only surprising fact I learned new today w
  19. Isn't pre-approved transactions are of small amount of 200 or 500 dhs max? Like the fuel station billing never needed a PIN...? Moral of the story: Spend all your money faster, before scammer takes it away.
