    Default Pushing limits, Someone has to do it to see what vehicles are capable of...

    I love how there's people willing to push their vehicles through these sorts of stress levels breaking off panels in the process, i guess someone has to see what the limits are i'm just glad i can be on the side lines with popcorn.

    It hurts me seeing the IFS suspension bashing into the sand like that...
    Always think: Could this be sarcasm?

    It hurts me to see the over-inflated tyres which is causing them to have to bash them up those dunes like that...

    I've been following that channel for a few weeks now. At some point I want to try and meet up with them while I'm living here in India....just want to catch a ride with some of them and experience some Indian off-road madness

    How not to drive dunes 101. Looks like fun if you want to find out how it feels when an airbag deploys.

    lower tire pressures would make everything much easier and with less damage.

    I can think of a few 4x4`s that will manage that little dune with zero run up. As said in the thread they way not to drive dunes.
    It is not what you buy its what you build.

    Amazing that the airbags didn't deploy.

    Don't think I could bring myself to put my vehicle through such punishment
    Its not about how fast you are but about how quick you get there...

    They have a sort of take the rule book and throw it off the closest dune kind of attitude towards 4x4 which makes it kinda entertaining haha.

    From a conservative point of view I'm really surprised that in all their millions of views that no one seems to have given them the right advice, either that or they dont listen to it.
