  1. Ok for now I’ve uploaded it to YouTube with the existing audio so let me see if stays or not. Here’s the link:
  2. Problem with uploading to YouTube is it might get taken down due to copyright issues on the audio track. I have faced this issue before as well.
  3. Last nights drive video 64E11218-9829-4626-9FA6-39CC7E50AB5E.mp4
  4. I personally haven't used this but a friend of mine has this on his jeep cherokee(hes not very pleased with it) and i have been part of discussions about the actual use of this contraption. Basically what this device offers is something that can be achieved by giving the right gas at the right time. so bottom line is that it is not a must have for offloading as such and the eco mode is something whereby the practical results have not matched the claims of the manufacturer in terms of the percentage reduction in gas mileage.
  5. i didnt even know about this tech until i saw it now. how cool is this!!!
  6. @Rahimdadbhai - thanks for the write up...i didnt feel like i missed much as i could just visualize the rest of the trip through the report . My car was fine that night as i was able to drive back home but 2 days later the check engine light did show up again after which, i took it to a garage and they realized the throttle body was a bit messy. They cleaned it up and now the car is back to working condition.
  7. @Gauravbhai...sure thing ill inform the new guy.
  8. @Rahimdadbhai, theres an absolute newbie fried of mine who would like to join us for this drive. He too drives an xterra. Would you recommend he join?
  9. You are probably right as I don’t know the difference between side sloping or side cresting. Difficult to explain with words so I’ll show you guys when we meet this weekend.
  10. What a night! it was a fun filled adventurous drive indeed. @Frederic yes thanks for pointing out that i need to be vocal when i am lost. Why i went mum, was because I realized that @Roshan Abraham was stuck on the other side anyways and since i had a fair idea of where he was located, and since the convoy would stop to recover him, i thought i could try and get out of that sticky spot by myself. Else, if the convoy was moving on, i would have definitely radio'ed in seeking assistance Besides that, I loved the side cresting exercises as it gave me a good chance to work on those skills. Tackling soft sand is still a tough one for me as i am still trying to figure out at what point and how much gas i need to apply. And on this night, i made my second ever attempt at climbing iftar bowl and yet again i failed. But when @Rahimdad bhai attempted the same with my car and he wasn't able to make it straight up (he eventually did with an alternate route) i was a bit relieved 😜 Definitely looking forward to more drives and to eventually climb off-road ranks (and dunes effortlessly) with this awesome group.
