Wait so this is an XUD-ish veg burning drift truck in essence? Hmm.

Yes, it's great for drifting off to sleep in...

Have you got any interior pics?  Does it have the hazard switch that looks like a strawberry Tic Tac?

 

Does it look like a tic tac?

I really feel like I need this but my bank disagrees.

 

I still can't get my head round the fact I've been an XUD bummer for years and never knew these were RWD. I had a feeling they were XUD based but didn't click that they'd be Bosch'd so could be a veg burning drift slut.

 

Are they leaf sprung or torsion bar?

They are leaf sprung.

 

Here's an incredibly boring video of it in action...

I like the idea of buying this and turning up the pump and boost, but luckily I have no disposable income at all (unless FOAD is interested in a 'fatigued' SEAT Inca). GLWTS FOAD

I'm not quite sure what a fatigued Seat Inca van is... Is it just slow or is it in limp mode if such a thing exists?

It's slow (SDI) and somewhat 'antiqued' looking. When he visited mine, he poked the key through the bit of metal above the cab, and you could see daylight through it, from the rear windows. :D

It would have to stay in council sized garage until October when my modern daily goes. It wouldn't fit there for sure.
Lack of balls is just another reason. I ain't worthy.

I do like that distinctive XUD sound.  :P 

 

Is the two-sweep intermittent wiper thing by design or just a slightly shagged relay?  Never seen it before.  (Actually I tell a lie, I've seen it on the rear wiper of a Renault 21, but never on the front.)

 

What sort of mpg does it do?

It's meant to do 2 sweeps on the intermittent setting which is also adjustable on the stalk, my last Tata was the same.

I haven't really been measuring its fuel economy but I don't think it's very good.

I've had the joy of using a Fourtrak most days this week; possibly on one of my favourite driving roads (Junkmans driven it, Rathdrum to Laragh)

That Tata looks like a great improvement (I've driven a Tata Safari before but that looks smooth in comparison :))

Those stalks look like Range Rover/Metro stalks.

Clearly some class engineering.

Hazard switch is reminding me of something too. Ford, but they were round? Volvo, but they stick out sideways.

Are you struggling for legroom in that video, or do you just sit a bit forward? Your knees look remarkably close to the dashboard and steering wheel.

Trying very hard to work out how I can purrrrrchace this. Might need to sell a kidney, and then get my work to pay for a flight to Edinburgh and mileage back. Could be an interesting expenses claim!

Is the steering wheel missing an airbag, or just a trim?

The seat can go much further back, I had it much further forward than it needed to be.
There's no airbags fitted.

Sold!

 

Well kinda swapped really, Red5 agreed to buy the knob van and drag it up here to swap for the Tata. I think he's mental for considering such a deal but he has a car he wanted and vice versa so everyone's a winner.
