  1. I really like this engineering approach @PaoloMaraziti and will try to incorporate a few of these theoretical how to ideas in these posts. The A/B testing idea is also fantastic as long as the convoy is OK with that stopping and starting (maybe better suited for a masterclass where we can take the time to experiment?) In essence, yes, this is about how to get your car to glide and run smoothly, but also how can you approach an obstacle in a different way (as you mention). Is there a way to build momentum to cross a high dune by circling round and building up momentum instead of powering u
  2. Dear DesernautsUAE, I cannot believe it's Tuesday already. It seems truly, as if the weeks are folding one into the other in a blur. Before the drive Friday, I wanted to develop the thinking just a bit more behind the limited RPM. My aim is to find a way to have a truly exciting drive while maintaining a limited rev range. To achieve that we are all going to have to see if we can learn how to climb using different techniques, slide slope and criss-cross using drive skill alone. When we started driving in the sand, it's likely that the drive lead told you to put your foot to t
  3. We open it up for 2nd drive Weds. So far you are the only WL and at the top of that list.
  4. LL is next level ... We will go from 2500 to 1500 next time round. No problems. Enjoy.

  6. @Br. San thanks for signing up for this drive. Unfortunately, this is a fewbie drive and as far as know you are a Newbie. I am afraid you will be signed out.
  7. Drive Idea The antithesis to pushing the vehicle to its limits, this drive is about pushing the driver to the absolute edge of the envelope in controlling the car and still having an incredible and exciting time. How? By seeing just how much 'performance' you can get from your driving skills while limiting the power you are allowed to use. This drive will truly test your 'drivership'. Can you get to the top of that dune without using raw power to get you there? How high can you get? Will you be able to navigate the smallest, softest technical dunes without being able to power your w

    Drive Details Level: Fewbie and Above (All Levels) When: 25 June 2021, Friday. Meeting time: 4.30 AM (SHARP - Without any exceptions) Meeting Point: Hamari Well Rd/Pylon Track intersection Type of Car: Any proper 4x4 with front and back tow hooks and 8-10 inches of ground clearance.

Approximate finish time: 8.30 AM
  9. Wow @Tero Vallas - that's a shame. I guess it's part of our expat life here in the UAE that we suffer these 'losses' more regularly than we would like. You will be missed by us all. All we can hope is that some day in the future we are buzzed by an aerobatic plane with you at the controls so we know that you are well and prospering.
  10. Drive Report Little later than planed - a quick report. Driving in the afternoon is more challenging because the sand is super soft. Driving in the twilight and dark adds more difficulty, because you cannot see where you are, what's in front of you and you really need to make sure you are in control of your car in ways that normally you might think pointless. We have crossed from semi technical dunes to the wide plains of Lisaili before the light faded. Once we lost the light, we continued South West into the direction of Solar Park (avoiding the treacherous technical dunes al
  11. Dear DesertnautsUAE, Normally I would by now have posted quite a few comments about what to expect on this drive, but it's just been one of those weeks where time slipped away and I did not find the time to explain the plan for Friday. As advertised, this drive is for the people that do not want to get up at the crack of dawn and don't want to be driving into the middle of the night. Well that was my plan until it transpired I am supporting a morning drive as well! Anyhow, what's the idea? It's a newbie drive - so nothing extreme. Starting anywhere in Lisaili does mean that th
