How to Drive in a Monsoon (no, really!)

I ran into this really neat forum for the car scene in India. Check out this thread on how to drive in the Monsoons, and how to safely cross a flooded road: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/owning...ing-rains.html

I've seen it over there and it's crazy. Makes me even more happy to be driving in the USA.

ummm I don't know about this guy. He gives good and bad advice. Example of bad:when crossing a flooded area, first gear and slip the clutch to get revs up.

Don't ever slip the clutch when your in deep water. Water will get between the the clutch and the flywheel and act like a big sander. Your clutch would be shot before you made it out the other side.

The cars there are different, most having power well under 100hp in the motor. Probably why it's needed.

When I visited there a decade ago, the top of the line Honda City (our Civic) had a whopping 110hp in the top level trim and cost $30k USD.

disengaging the clutch while its under water is a big no no. I learned that lesson early on in my 4x4 days...the hard way

Yeah, it doesn't sound intuitive. But like I said, different cars different techniques. I bet the car completely stalls without the higher rpms. And I think their clutches must be waaay beefier than ours. Driving there is super-hard on clutches and they don't replace them as often as I thought they would.
