Patrol scrap yard in Sharjah, UAE.

I was feeling a little bored this morning, and not been able to get out offroading or camping due other brainless social crap. So a trip to Sharjah industrial areas always relaxes me. Sharjah is about 30-40 minutes from Dubai, and there are areas of sharjah industrial area which specialise in car/tr...

Re: Dual Battery 4.8...Need your views please.

Boats, thanks to you for the idea, it is your "out of the box" thinking that got me a solution. I paid fair amount for it, but compared to ready made mounts in Aus, it is still not a bad price. I had to swallow some pride and take it to a fabricator that is owned by someone I don't like too much, lu...

Re: TB48 - spark plug change

Yes our parts are much cheaper than most places in the world. But you should see what we pay for booze and pork here. Booze has a 30% duty, I am not sure what the duty or premium on pork is here, but the price makes it a premium meat! On that note, you should see what we pay for your SA fruits, usua...

Re: Starfish Dunes, Al Wagan UAE

Gupster: I was down to 12psi or 0.82 bar, it would climb up to 15psi after 30 minutes of driving, this I feel is ideal for the sand here, too low we have a chance to have the tyre de-bead, and too high we don't climb well. Yes the sand was quite firm this time, we have had rain recently and due to w...

Starfish Dunes, Al Wagan UAE

So joined an overnight trip with my club this weekend. Area is knicknamed Starfish dunes, due to the shape of the dune. Instead of re-writing the report that has already been written on my club's site, I thought I will just paste the words here, the text is from Sujit Joh, who organised the trip, an...
