Hi all,

This will sound a bit newbie but I must get your expert views on this. I have an LC200 2016 5.7L and when I drive off-road in the desert I've been trying a few combinations to get the most responsiveness out of the car. When I drive in Low gear, the car is way more responsive but speed is limited but during sand dunes negotiation this really provides for greater performance. My main question is, am I damaging the engine when I leave it at low at all times but keeping it driving under 50 kph?

And another one if I may, the set of things I do to max out the responsiveness is (if you can confirm I am doing the best practice here):

- ECT on
- Traction control and stability off
- diff lock off
- manual gearing with the +, - (gear changes are not as responsive as I want them but this works better when dune climbing as opposed to automatic)
- tyres deflated to 15 psi each, I also have lift kitted the car by 3.5 inches front and back with custom shocks and springs

Thanks,
Oguzhan
