      Date with the Beast - Tata Storme Extreme Sports : Terrapod Event Experience

      Went to this Tata Storme Extreme sports activity which was held near my place. It was one of the best experience

      All those who have owned a Safari or who are having a Safari will know what the beast can do. These guys hrag, Wheels, kairalee, Godfather, Ironhide, camchennai, Black-Knight are very lucky. Even I was lucky to drive this beast once from Chennai to Shoolagiri. kairalee had given me his safari to drive when we were coming from the Mahabalipuram GHD's meet.

      Anyway coming to this extreme sports. There were 2 VX 4x4 Storme doing all the activities. people were taken for a ride by experts tadukuttan, you were thinking of buying a SUV right. Look at the below pics and decide.

      The first obstacle was the inline climb and decline

      here goes the climb pics.

      Another angle of the descent from another Storme

      The best part was that even with such decline angle the front didn't even touch the ground.

      Next one was the sea-saw. This was awesome. The stability and performance was superb. It managed to stand there without going on or going back.

      I didn't know about this event...I had an invitation for the one that took place at the "Ayodhya Grounds" last month I guess but couldn't make it.

      The Safari is really capable of doing much more than what they demonstrate at the Terra Pod. The Safari is essentially a very rugged, good looking long distance cruiser with very good comfort levels and space and "also" has some impressive offroading capabilities.

      Some people buy it for the good looks, some others for the comfort and space and maybe for its long distance cruising abilities, but very few buy it for its offroading capabilities.

      Those who buy it for its looks/cruising capabilities/comfort/space will enjoy every moment of their ownership, but most of them will also hope the truck had more refinements in terms of drivability and creature comforts.

      Then after sea-saw it was the time for one more level of obstacle where 2 wheels went on a ramp which was more than 2 foot. The stability of the vehicle with fully loaded people inside was a treat to watch

      I am the first among them to go for the beast. Hope I had another 1.5L, 2.5 years ago to buy that LX version atleast.

      These guys will always be there for all types of vehicles. They forget the amount they have given and the things they are getting. They simple cry for things which are beyond 20L instead of enjoying what they have.

      But I still tell the same thing. BEAST is always a BEAST

      The same single ramp in different angles.

      Checkout that approach and descent angles.

      shishirbn, frankly you are among the very few Mahendra SUV/MUV owner I have come across on the web, who have praised Safari Storme so much. You are auto enthusiast in real, and hats off to you!!

      Thanks Sir. You will believe it or not. My kid from yesterday is pushing me to buy this. My BIL is already looking for finance options and my wife has gone crazy as she was sitting inside a Safari for the first time.

      I always used to tell them about 3bhk on wheels. After I bought my Truck(Xylo) the space thing was fulfilled. But the brute performance and the stance and stability the of a Safari still beckons me.

      It is a class apart. Ask kairalee, how much I was praising the Safari butter gear when compared to my truck and other things.

      Next it was the double ramp obstacle. Here you should see the articulation this 2 tonne vehicle showed us. Awesome view it is.

      Just enjoy the beast guys
