  1. Hi sri, I am gutted that so last minutish, I am unable to join the very first 2020 newbie drive I was so looking forward to. Happy new year to all Carnity off- roaders regards srini
  2. Wow xaf and shamil- great videos of the drive, crisp pictures, feel as if I was driving while watching- great guys. Thanks for the videos
  3. If anyone interested in racing then ford versus Ferrari is a good movie about me mans race 1966. there is also a documentary of the same race in Netflix ford versus Ferrari wars which is also interesting. this then led me to see Le Mans 1971 - Steve McQueen movie which was a flop at the time. But I found it interesting. this then led me to watch the documentary about making of Le Mans 1971- the man and Le Mans, on the tribulations during the making of the movie. all in all good few hours spent glued to cinema screen and tv screens😁
  4. It was good to get back with my favourite off rood club after a break. i hope I did not get speed ticket as my friend was a bit late and I was gunning on the highway to get on time and just made it. i enjoyed the drive and equally importantly my 2 friends/colleagues enjoyed the drive as much as I did. So thanks to rahimbhai for leading us. i thought I will be rusty but pleasantly surprised that I was able to remember the tips passed on to me by rahimbhai, gaurav bhai, Sri kumar, Emmanuel, Frederic and others. i remembered how awful I was on my very first drive last year and compared to that I have come some way 😁 again this is a reflection on the great guidance in this close knit group. As always the drive up the pink rock got my heart racing and revs racing more😁 finally and the very best part is rahimbhai’S aloo paratta and Karak chai. with that we returned back to Dubai to spend the night here. i will meet you all again the Friday after Xmas. thank you again for a wonderful morning regards to all srini
  5. Hi Emmanuel, thanks. No worries. I will go in the morning newbie drive. lets see how rusty i am!!
  6. Hi Emmanuel, this is srini. I would love to join the few or drive on Friday afternoon. Hope this is ok by you. regards srini I meant fewbie drive- damn autocorrect!!!!
  7. I am now in al mansour tyres close to diamond park in Dubai.They have repaired my bent wheel rim and balanced that wheel. Cost 225aed. impressed with their service. thanks rahimbhai for recommending this place to me. regards srini
  8. Just an update. i took the fjc to al nanda auto garage in midriff and found that the balance in my tyres were way off, one of the rims bent. so swopped the spare and balanced wheels and did the digital alignment and adjustment. now no vibrations. gaurav bhai- you are a genius. Thanks to you I took the car second time to The above area ,as I was not happy with the first one in Sharjah, after looking thro Carnity forums. costed me 200 dirhams. very satisfied! now to look for r16 rim to replace the slightly bent one- I am told rims come in 4s. tyres can wait till Feb next year before replacement as it will be over 5 years then. It is al nahdha auto garage
  9. thanks gaurav. i was considering yokohama geo. but i have to admit the bfg looks mean and intimidating as a tyre on the fjc xtreme and was wondering if this was good compensation for the lack of these features in me😃🤣
  10. Thanks. I think Toyota looked at this . Not sure if it was changed. by the way- no sand in the tyres- so no luck but to change tyres. If it persists then back to Toyota. best price I got in Sharjah was for 2019 bf Goodrich 270/70/r16-k02 tyre- 700 dirhams including tax/fitting/balancing. i am not sure if it is me or my lack of Hindi, I just got an overwhelming feeling that I am somehow being taken for a ride- I did not have cash and the guy insisted that I stay there till he gets the tires from somewhere in 5 minutes and once fixed can go together to the nearest atm. this might be ok but I just felt being pushed into buying- so I left. Probably should have waited till I saw the tires to see f new or not. i probably will try Abu Dhabi musaffah area for tires on the way back from airport on Sunday.
  11. You are probably right. My email interest in this is because of formula 1 and tennis. I am just getting more info on this.
  12. The wheels were originally with the car. the problem with spare at the tome was the wheel nut was stuck and we had a job to get it out of the frame from rear door.
  13. hi gaurav, thanks for the tip. i will do this this evening, hopefully in sharjah. much appreciated.
  14. Hi, I wonder if anyone has any experience with android set top tv boxes connected to internet which has apps like mktv pro and eagle tv apps. these i understand streams tv/movies/sports from all over world to your tv. i understand these are available in dragon mart. any ideas regarding prices and which shops i an get and any recommendation one of my trainee residents at the hospital was telling me about it but was not sure where i can get one except that it is available in dragon mart! any ideas? regards srini
  15. Hi, My 2016 fj cruiser xtreme has vibrations between 80-110km/hour- i can feel it in the steering and passenger also feels the vibration. As it still has warranty, i took it to toyota in al ain. they changed bushes, tracking rod, something in the propeller shaft connection -all covered in warranty-thank god! but unfortunately the vibrations persist. They say that it is probably the tyres- bf goodridge-all terrain- 2015 tyres. they need changing. i was looking in the forum and both srikumar and gaurav suggested tyre shops in sharjah- with location map. is there any particular tyre shop which is recommended or do i just try a few to see who gives the best prices. i understand there is vehicle balancing as well- is there a tyre shop which will do this as well or do i take it to another place after fixing the new tyres to balance the whole vehicle? secondly- i noticed a paint chip about 2x2cm in the passenger door - you can see the under coat- is there any recommended body shop which will repair this either in al ain or sharjah or dubai. i will be in dubai this afternoon till sunday morning. many thanks for any pointers. much appreciated regards srini
