      This remind's me of our ship's Bosun's store. You can find exactly the same stuff there. What you call tow ropes, we call slings. We use them for picking up stuff using the crane. Shackles are there in all sizes everywhere. The leather gloves (grey) are used by our crew when working on deck or with ropes and wires. Anyone needing this stuff can contact Chief Officer Vernon Fernando.
      The only people who have a problem with FIAT are those who have never owned one!

      Why is crysta not moving up? Is it because of loss of traction in rear wheels or driver fault. For me it seems the driver because of traffic behind ,cant keep speeds from the bridge onwards? As he stops and accelerates the mpv with no traction keeps spinning.

      So crysta not being a 4x4 the problem here?

      1. Open differentials and lack for LSD means when one tyre spins, you loose all power. Think of it as sort of 1 wheel drive.

      2. Over aggressive Traction control and ESP cutting engine power at slightest wheelspin. I think he could've gone up if ESP was switched off.

      3. MPV body style with Low suspension articulation and smaller tyres compared to SUVs.

      4. Lack of 4x4.

      That was poor driving for sure. The driven wheels slipped when he did his stop start driving. The easiest way apart from a little momentum effort would have been to make some of those mallu uncles sit in the boot loading up the rear.

      Driver issue here; he does not power enough and stops at the wrong place. I would have cleared in the first attempt itself, if he had known how.
