The car snorts and growls, thanks to an aftermarket filter and a rorty exhaust system.


I know... I love driving that car. It roars like a lion and moves like a cat on steroids. I knew it was very good, but abhi you guru logs ke saamne kya bolu?? But often I smiled watching you guys talk about straight line speeds. often the best surprises are the unexpected ones.

Ek minute, ek minute. First you guys want to roar on the streets, overtaking Vtecs and Balenos and go faster and faster AND you want to complain that it guzzles? What do you want it to roar on? An empty stomach?

You remember what i told you? Girls LOVE that sound, contrary to what you might say. The car is such a bloody statement that you could wear orange underwear OUTSIDE your pants like a superhero and put whipped cream and fudge on your chest and you would be subtle in comparison. Best thing is to bask. Go past and watch the guys stare open mouthed and the girls scream/giggle and you drive along, smiling and bajaoing.

You are very welcome, little McL and V1p3r. I gave you the car just for this happy review... I am really glad you enjoyed yourself. The car is on it's way to mumbai now (already in the truck). I guess after reading this, I'm going to be completely inundated with requests for drives.

Yes. It hasn't been serviced in a while, so a full engine clean and tune. That should make it go a little faster lol. Also thinking of popping in some Iridium plugs.A new K&N air filter. A overcoat paint job and new graphics for the next show.

McL, to listen to over 138dB in a car is unhealthy for you. (even though it's fun)
The biggest problem is that your inner ear fluid gets all vibrated about, causing a distressful temporary loss of equilibrium. Did I tell you about the kid that vomited after a demo?
More from Navin I think...

I figured you'd say that. You see after seeing ICE shows few audio systems impress me. What impresss me is what is now being done in India. I am excied with what the next gen like mclaren, JB, vivek, etc will do in the future. The fire is lit. The torch will burn. with these guys around we oldies (rudra, ajmat etc..) can feel safe the audio flag is in good hands.

Nowadays I am happy if once in a while i get to tear up WSF or the Reclamation Road.

Here is how the ear works normally:

Sound is transmitted as sound waves from the environment. The sound waves are gathered by the outer ear and sent down the ear canal to the eardrum.

the shape of the outer ear (pinna) of musicians including the ear lobe is different from us normal humans. they can hear what we cant and i dont mean that in the freq. domain.

The sound waves cause the eardrum (tympanic membrane) to vibrate, which sets the three tiny bones (ossicles - made up of the
Malleus (hammer), Incus (anvil) and Stapes (stirrup) ) in the middle ear into motion. The motion of the bones causes the fluid in the inner ear or cochlea to move by striking the oval window of the cochlea.The cochlea is a fluid filled canal which is lined with hair cells.

The movement of the inner ear fluid causes the hair cells in the cochlea to bend. The hair cells change the movement into electrical pluses.

When sound is too loud, it begins to kill the nerve endings/hair cells in the inner ear. As the exposure time to loud noise increases, more and more are destroyed. As the number of nerve endings/hair cells decreases, so does your hearing. There is no way to restore life to dead nerve endings; the damage is permanent.

These electrical impluses are transmitted to the hearing (auditory) nerve and up to the brain, where they are interpreted as sound.

I would not recommend listening to music over 95db for more than 45 min at one go (i'd say 45min per day). At 85db I'd recommend upto 2 hours (although most docs allow 4 hours).

I hope this helps.

well if i get crazy i might up that to 200bhp! :-) ha ha ha BTW I get serious stress if I have to drive below 60mkph. I mean chest pains and all. so that is why i keep a chauffer in mumbai. Above 80kmph it is fun.
