@vishwaschettri the king's engine is considerably different from the esteem MPFI. And as for the Ecm RD doesn't generally do piggybacks. He has an ecm setup of his own. And it generally would need to be done for each vehicle specifically keeping in mind reliability. Unless you want the put in and go option. For rallies one engine is different from another while on paper they are the same let's just say its like saying a jetta and a golf are the same. They are (underneath) but not completely. Its a matter of character. If you get what I mean :-P

Hi Sugan,

These are Tiger Type 2 racing kamani's

Twin shocks (Dampers) serve two purpose -

reliability - Two is better than 1

stability - vehicles with racing kamani's and single shocks tend to jump around a lot. the dual shocks add more stability and are required with the extra weight being added during the preparation (around 15 Kg added to the differential, 12 Kg from the two spare wheels, & 60-65Kg from the roll cage.)

Maybe the rally car tuners can shed more light on this.

What the update Mr. Sinner?

This is an awfully long time to upload photos by any speed internet connection.

I am hoping that you steed is on the road by now or close to being on the road.
