Specialties of the VEHICLE
· Safety is kept at par with the help of Heavy Duty Disc Brakes all around.
· Imported ATV Tyres
· Bucket seat has been used, keeping in view the drivers comfort and ergonomics.
· As the ATV is meant for shear off Roading that requires very high ground clearance and our vehicle offers 11 inch. , i.e. 2 times more than standard road car.
· The standard parts which have been used are very easily available even from a road side vendor throughout the country (parts of MUL, TATA Motors, Bajaj etc)
· In totality the vehicle has been fabricated keeping the Marketing factor as our prime consideration
· Fully Centered Rack and Pinion Steering Mechanism.
IAB Comment- The vehicle looks amazingly rugged and lamps mounted to the top of the roll cage and the wide front wheel track adds style and commands a second glimpse.
IAB Recommendation- Plain and dull colors should suit the vehicle better than dark and multiple shades. Even out the rough spots on the sheet metal and try bettering the alignment of the lights on top.
We wish the Junkyard warriors all success in the competition. We feel that they have a very competitive car with safety and comfort given it's fair share of importance.
