    Fantastic Ramesh.

    I will go through your blog in few mins.

    But I am extremely curious to know how Manza performed as I myself dream to take my Manza to ladakh someday. :)

    Any changes/mods you did to Manza to increase GC?

    Any other specific mods you did to the car?

    Basically, please do tell in detail about the car's performance during the entire trip.

    Thanks :)

    Hoping that you will update further about the remaining journey and if possible post a travelogue here at BCMT as well.

    Thanks Amit for the compliment !!

    i am planning to write about my car performance too in the whole journey....... but it will take some time.

    For now, i would say my car was simply awesome in the whole journey.

    i did normal servicing(3rd free) before going.

    as i have written in my blog there was slight "low power" we felt near pang, that was due to less oxygen, and that was resolved from Srinagar.
    This was not significant to be mentioned as an issue but only to realized the affect of less oxygen on machine also.

    GC is really an issue specially in such a Terrain. But we were really cautious about it and every time while crossing a Nalah or water stream one of us use to guide the way from outside.....this kept my car safe whole journey.

    my car did not stuck anywhere so no over accelerating therefore no clutch plate burning. all steep slope were climbed easily and no power problem.

    Many places GPS war working fine.

    one car wash at Leh. no change of oil/filter.

    mileage 15 km/hr

    15 km/l
