  1. Cheers @Luca Palanca Falsini and @Panchoand the rest of the lads for a solid drive! It was super fun and more importantly insightful for me and the Jimny on the large dunes of Faya! Definitely can take away some valid information and experience to better my skills for next time, plenty of room for improvement. See you back out there on red stuff soon enough!
  2. @RaYan E, as @Chaitanya D mentioned us Jimny drivers are absolutely rivalled by horsepower but that (from first hand experience) can be overshadowed by driving skill and experience and ultimately knowing the science of how your Jimny reacts to driving on sand! A few points in regards to this being that these Japanese short wheel based little toys have one of the biggest advantages and that is the WEIGHT which technically makes a resounding difference when talking about power and movement as although it doesn’t give us much juice as some bigger cars with 4 litre or v6/8 configurations it means that it takes a lot less to move it. In parallel to that weight I personally drive on 10psi on the OEM wheels and tyres without so far having any problems, which allow we to create a decent footprint for putting what power I have down on top of the sand without sinking or bogging. You can really notice the presence of the Jimny when your driving on sand as it loves to float on top and really does not sink at all! With the experience and skill side, it’s all bout momentum and throttle control with the Jimny, maintaining that speed and most importantly the sections before a climb or a sidey etc, that is what will carry you through with ease and less strain on the little motor! Knowing the throttle will help with that and when the range where you have Max torque and bite! I’m about 12 drives in now with a few fewbies under my belt and I’m loving every step in the Jimny, learning an abundance about myself and vehicle each week! Hope this helped a little bit if you want to know anything more or some specifics, feel free to continue this discussion on here. And if you do get stuck all you have to do is get you and your friend to pick up the car with one finger and she’ll be out Nathan
  3. @Janarthan & @Brette, smashing drive as always, was awesome to see you take the reigns and lead the drive, being my first Fewbie level drive I was in awe of the variety of terrain we covered and can’t wait to get back on top of this ridges for some more experience in the little Jimny!
  4. Thanks lads for the praise! 🙌🏼 Certainly take pride in my Friday mornings with Carnity, can’t wait to keep learning and pushing forwards (upwards, sidewards and downwards) with the lil Jimny
  5. @Brette & @Chaitanya D, thanks for the maiden drive for the lil Jimny on the slippery Margham dunes. Really enjoyed the different feel of terrain on this one and that fun little technical section on the back end of the drive was a great little experience for me!
  6. Thank you once again @Frederic! For your admirable words and spirit in the field 👊🏼 Everyone today showed their passion to progress and most importantly have fun safely with off roading. You can never ask not to be surrounded by this kind of group as it really does make these drives all the more exciting and excel everyone’s learning curve. Sadly the Jimny will be sat in the garage itching to get back out to the desert 🐪 as I travel for a few weeks over Christmas, which however, the Jimny can celebrate early with those climbs today😅 Big up to everyone for the good vibes and technical support today!
  7. Great little toot today for my first time in the slightly more daunting red stuff! Thanks @Frederic and @Nivin for holding it down, Already looking forward to getting back out there in the Jimny 🤘🏼
