Last two days where all above 3200 meter altitude so thin air and looks like our engine dos very well as other will struggle to make power and spool the turbo and so on but we also had a bit of bad luck. After crossing the river with great force and power (facebook movies below) they had to stop as water gets in to the engine loom plug and on the second day they hit a hole and bent a part of the steering messing up the wheel alignment also losing some time but after full throttle to gain some time back still holding 10e place overall.

Speed difference and power is all there as you can see overtaking a Iveco torpedo, no problem.

Some impression of the last two stages during the Rally marathon as there will be no service team to support the truck so you have to be care full on what risk you want to take on the stage and they damaged 2 rims and tyre hitting a rock pile sliding off the track.
