  1. Hi @Giacomo @Victor Socaciu @Fares Adel @nithish468 looks like we are going to have a short convoy which means we can do a bit more exploration in the night wilderness. Brace yourself for a lot of fun and excitement. We shall be using Carnity Channel 3 (446.056) for this drive. Convoy numbering would be decided at the meeting point. @TIMMY you are on the manage tab. Are you joining this drive? If so, will shift you to the going tab.

  3. DRIVE DESCRIPTION With the summer in full bloom, one of the best times to enjoy the UAE wilderness is at night. Driving at night brings a different set of challenges. While the pace would be lower compared to the day, the reduced visibility increases the level of the game. This time we would be heading to Little Liwa or Sweihan where we will be presented with some of the finest terrain that UAE has to offer. Its not mandatory to have offroad lights for this drive. We request every member that joins this drive to go through the below information and strictly follow these guidelines, etiquettes and responsibilities.

  4. If it's a personal vehicle, I would get them passed in UAQ Shamil. They don't bother as long as the engine, gear and chassis is in place. Rest don't matter. 😅
  5. Is your clutch fan functioning like it's supposed to? Normally when the engine temperature goes up the fan speed needs to increase to compensate for the lack of natural air flow. One easy way to check is when the engine is cold to rotate the fan. If it rotates smoothly, that means the fan needs to be replaced. A good condition clutch fan will have rotational resistance when engine is cold
  6. The noise feels like a rubbing noise or from the wheel bearing. Just check if the mud guards are not scrapping the tyre especially in the front. Do you have a skid plate for the front bumper? Reason I am asking is because the Pajero front bumper without a skid plate does tend to bend inside after a couple of off-road drives. See if you can get someone to sit with you and try to find out from which side of the car the noise is coming from. That might help to identify if it's a wheel bearing issue
  7. Yes you are right. The hitch receiver goes in the same slot as the ball hitch. You can share the photos if you wish as well. As long as they are not a distraction to your focus, it should be fine. Children need to be belted with appropriate child / booster seats as per their age.
  8. Due to limited participation, this drive has been cancelled. We have another FB+ drive on Saturday which still has some space available incase you wish to join. Will plan this drive some other time. @Mohit Gurnani @Mohammad Sayawoush Azad please acknowledge this post.
  9. DRIVE PLAN Plan is simple. To hit every monstrous dune in Sweihan with tons of ridge riding, side sloping, and action packed fast paced driving. This drive will provide you with the right amount of adrenaline before the start of the Eid Holiday.

  10. Thanks @Davie Chase for a brilliant drive. Loved the pace and the ease with which you took the convoy through. Look forward to catching up with you on your next drive.
  11. And I used to keep saying Abraca Dabra at the gate for it to open. 😂
  12. What is the lift on your vehicle? Typically the drive shafts can tolerate a bit of lift, like in my XJ I have a 2.5 inch lift and the drive shaft has been working fine for the last 6 years. But I did drop my TC a bit a to reduce the angle.
  13. This is the first time I have joined your drive @Davie Chase and it was an absolute blast, right from the briefing to the beautiful route that you took. Loved every bit of it. Everyone drove amazingly well especially in the middle session where the whole convoy was driving in a fluid motion. Look forward more such adventures.
  14. Fantastic evening Fredy. Though I have not heard much of the Queen songs before, it was really great to have such a special screening. The atmosphere was even sweeter with all those who joined and danced yesterday night. Looking forward to the next Sonic night. P.S. @Frederic by then please learn a bit more on the history and steps of Kolaveri Di and Sheila Ki Jaawani.
