  1. You can go upto 17 inch rims on 3.8
  2. There is no ac cabin filter in the Pajero.
  3. You can probably try to exchange with some other Pajero owners. There should be a few people who would be willing to exchange their 17 inch rims with 18 inch rims for free.
  4. I think it's 2013 or 2014 model and yes, it didn't upshift in 4 HLc mode. Tried it at pink rocks
  5. @Frederic I think it's more linked to the speed rather than the RPM. However, when I used to drive a 3.8 Pajero, I tried my best to keep it below the upshifting point of 50 kmph ( or close to 5200 rpm). But he problem then is that you don't have enough momentum for the climb. I remember at Faya, I managed to keep it in 1st gear (tiptronic mode) by controlling the speed. However, the result was the same. It just wouldn't climb. And in last week drive, I even tried the Faya climb in 4 LLc, it would still upshift. @Julien V something was a bit off on your car as there was no road of the engine. It's better that you check up the basics like air filter, throttle body, MAF sensor once.
  6. It was to be 3 Jeep and 3 Japs, but couldnt get the last one up to the top. Hopefully next time
  7. Try paying from the ministry of Interior App or Website. You can make online payment only if there is no black point associated with the fine. If black point is there then you need to go-to Sharjah police station along with drivers license and pay the fine and get the black points. Good luck
  8. Welcome @Omairfk. Thank you for answering the basic questions and appreciate your enthusiam to learn desert driving. Regarding the air damp, it does seem to be low hanging and I would suggest to get it removed. What do you feel @Gaurav, @Rahimdad?
  9. If you are driving within the city, this would be the mileage. If cruising on the highway at around 100 kmph you will get about 8 - 8.5 km/l
  10. In ENOC anything below AED 200 doesn't need a pin. This extends to many other retail outlets as well that accept Visa Wave cards. Just tap and hear the sms on your phone.
  11. Thanks @Xaf for your feedback and I like your enthusiasm. Kinda reminds me of when I started offroading where I was more than eager to play at every possible opportunity. But one rollover while criss-crossing at a wrong angle and speed made me realise that we need to push ourselves only to a certain point and not go overboard. It's based on such experiences and that of others that I was also in agreement when the Carnity Off-road Structure was formed. For Fewbies we do give them some responsibilities like second lead, Sweep etc. to test their readiness for the next level instead of testing them on particular sidey or hill climb. Now the duty of Sweep is to ensure that he is "always" there to assist when any of the other drivers need assistance and ensure smooth convoy movement and communicate the same to the drive lead periodically. So, while you were playing at Sweep position if you would have got stuck/lost then it would be very difficult for us to trace you back. Criteria's for upgrade to the next level is clearly laid out on the forum, which is based on performance and active participation during the drive and not just a particular side slopping test, etc. I believe with Carnity it was your first fewbie drive and Rahimdad has given you some positive feedback on how to improve for the next level of drives.
  12. Yes, you are most welcome to join. Since you are taking possession of a s cond hand Wrangler on Wednesday, just ensure that all the fluids are in good condition. And that the front and rear tow points are in good condition. Regarding the equipments, you can get them later. See you on Friday.
  13. @Wrangeld welcome to Carnity Off-road Club. Few questions: 1. Which 4x4 do you drive? 2. Have you had any previous off-road experience? 3. Does your 4x4 have front and rear tow hooks?
  14. Looking for an easy relaxing desert drive for everyone with plenty of opportunities to learn and grow in this beautiful weather. Maliha is the perfect area for starting of your offroad adventure. It offers small to medium size dunes that offer plenty of opportunity to learn the art of offroading in a safe environment. Plan is to have an early morning Newbie drive to Fossil Rock till about 10:30 am. Depending on the Fewbie response, we shall then have a second session drive towards Faya in some more challenging dunes. When: 29 November 2019 Meeting time: 6:00 AM, convoy will move at 6:15 AM SHARP (NO EXCEPTIONS) Where: Adnoc Petrol Station Maleha Road GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/ye28yTnTSYr Level: Absolute Newbie / Newbie / Fewbie Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 10 inches of ground clearance. Plan: Drive, train and enjoy till about 12:30 PM What to bring along: Snacks - whatever you like with little extra to share, water, liquids, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn. Approximate finish time: 12:30 PM MUST READ: Off Road Driving - Roles & Responsibilities Off road Driving Etiquette's Off-road Convoy Rules Please RSVP the below calendar event
