  1. Taken me a while to catchup with the last week! Thanks for a Fantastic drive last friday @Ale Vallecchi! never been that close to the solar park tower, and what a cracking experience for my passenger over from UK, he had a cracking day! Well done to everyone else in the convoy!
  2. @Jaro Tuzinsky completely forgot you were following me with the camera! Can i get a copy of the video?
  3. Hi all! fantastic drive today, thankyou @Hisham Masaad. congratulations and well done to everyone in the convoy. A few “oldies” and “newbies” at this level but thoroughly impressed by everyone today. only a couple of minor refusals in the convoy and all handled well, with drivers choosing to “loop round” rather than fight gravity, allowing the convoy to continue moving. Well done again, @Looper you have a couple of candidates for your stickers 😛 @imranaasghar81 great to see you after so long, please consider bringing two different size flags in future 🤣
  4. Congrats on the new car. A good bash plate is all you really need with the FJ! Dobinsons MRR is great setup, had on my prado and also FJ. But its not a necessity for FJ. on newer cars, most people change wheels and tyres to reduce wheel size from 18/19 down to the common 17inch wheel, allowing a higher profile tyre for better deflation. The FJ comes with 17inch rims and 265/70 tyres as standard, so no need to swap here. I am running method rims and geolander tyres but exactly same size as stock!
  5. Great drive today, thankyou @Rizwanm2 for finding some awesome routes through the sands! Good to see old faces @Fabien Monleau and @Mahmoud Taha. First time driving with @Jona and @Benjamin both if you did fantastic, riding the ridges with good control! @Imteeaz @Patrick van der Loo and @Sam K its always a pleasure to see you guys on the sand! Enjoy the rest of your weekends all
  6. Looking forward to it, I have changed car now so will be in FJ if you want to update Car list. It should be changed on my profile now.
  7. Hi All, though I had been out on a Newbie and a fewbie, this was the first "proper" outing in the FJ and I could not think of a better group of people to enjoy it with! The old gang and Prado boys @Asad and @Waqas Parvez, and fellow class of winter 2021 @Chris Wing and @Mohamad Anwer. And this time we had both teachers @Islam Soliman and @Hisham MasaadThanks everyone for the patience at the beginning and the energy and encouragement during the drive! Nice to meet new faces @Archibald Jurdi and @Werno , not forgeting @Senthil Kumar! @Archibald Jurdi I hope you and passenger have no lasting effects from your incident and the car gets a clean bill of health from the garage. @Islam Soliman I hope car issues can be swiftly resolved and join you on another drive soon! Randomly tagging @Vaibhav because he missed an amazing drive
  8. Regretfully, i have to withdraw from the drive. Still got a few things to sort with the motor and wont be back in dubai now till thursday. Want to avoid a last minute cancellation and give someone on the waitlist opportunity to prepare! Im sure it will be a great one!
  9. Is there a camp spot for the Friday night? I am in Saudi next week, so need to plan now!!!!
  10. Been waiting for a @Hisham Masaad intermediate Yalla push drive for a while! Gutted i cannot make this weekend, but also wasnt near the internet at 1900 on monday either 🤣. Im sure it will be a good one! Enjoy all!
  11. I don't think there is much more for me to add after @Srikumar 's drive report, and @Foxtrot Oscar, @Tom B and @ASAD. I didn't realize on the day, but this full day drive was my 60th drive with Carnity . . . . . who could imagine less than 14months ago I had never got behind the wheel of a 4x4! Testament to the skills taught and learnt during Carnity drives and the amazing Toyota Prado (with only minor modifications!). @Zed I hope you are doing well and see you again in the deserts soon. @ASAD. fantastic job as SL and hope the car is repaired swiftly! @Vaibhav shame you were unable to join us, its been a while since we had the whole gang on one drive. @Waqas Parvez great job supporting through the various challenges! Thanks again @Srikumar, look forward to joining your next adventure! PS. @Srikumar I have your initial pajero bowl escape but its to big to share on whatsapp!
  12. Haha, psyching myself up and thinking “I must not let the PRADO boys down”
  13. Hi @essam ibrahim, For newer Prados, they tend to have lots of "eco" settings that make it more challenging to extract the best performance. As you experienced, using "S" in the desert instead of "D" can help to remove some of these Eco settings. When in S, always make sure the dashboard says "4". If the number changes, the best way to reset is to move the stick to D and then back to S. Once you enter the desert, make sure you disable traction control and set "S" mode.
