Before posting as a new topic, i browsed all the topics for the topic to start.
My intention is to take expert tips from all expert guys like you.
Kindly bear with me if you find these queries childish, as i can't change stepney by myself!
1. During ascending on ghat road (which i observed on Lonavala ghat road), i drive in 2nd gear. At the hair pin curve, applied full accelarotor, as i felt my vehicle may not move further. Scary experience. Is it normal?
Somebody suggest me to use 1st gear for those ascending hair pin curve...
2. I have read lot of experience of driving in Wayanad. With my above experience can I hit the road? Planning this October holidays after getting 3rd service done.
My wife drive well if the roads are well mainatained like NH44.
3. Does Nitrogen gas really helps for better maintenance of the tyres?
I will continue post my queries here in this forum, if i get some response as I believe in learning is continuous process until you die!
Note: I start exploring the forum very recently. Had i read all the post before my unplanned tour to Mumbai, i would never taken the route of NH65 especially from Omerga to Sholapur😩.
Thank you for your time and valuable inputs.
