Congrats Vivek. Since the mag is called Quarter Mile, i hope you're gonna concentrate more on the performance aspect of the car. A detailed list of acc, cornering and braking data for each car will make it an interesting read.

Maybe some track tests with telemetry, later on in the future. I wouldn't mind paying 100 bucks per issue for a mag lke this. Reviews can be found on any automotive mag/webpage but accurate detailed performance data is hard to come by.

Congratulation buddy, even though Igot your magazine earlier I juat this thread & felt its the right place to put my words which I couldn't convey you on the day you givenme your first copy.

You have done a marvelous job & I really admire your brave step to come up with a auto magazine which is free of cost. Infact, I had same idea in my mind & have took a prime step towards it much before we met. But few of my friends & market report I got from my survey were not so favoring, hence couldn't go further. I'm not sure whether the situation is changed or not, but your braveness to take it further shows that you'll be sucessful in this new endeavour. May Almighty bless you & you can expect all my support at any time feel free to ask it!

I also request all our friend to make his venture a successful one & support him by subscribing his new Quatermile & make it a full mile!

I just went through the entire e-mag. I must say I particularly liked the 'swish' sound when you turn pages. Great E-book software
Hope you touch great heights.The writing style is simple and conveys the point. Went through the SX4 test in detail. Would have liked to see top speed there while the figures posted are good. You could just highlight the 'quarter mile' figure for the readers with a tongue-in cheek touch.Not important to stress it is an important statistic too!Hey, Would you give tbhpians chances to write on guest columns ? Do let me know if you do!
Power to you, and I'm very proud that this is probably the second awesome publication to come out of God's own country ( the other top notch one being the week), I am from there too!
Best wishes once again. How do we get hold of this on Bangalore's bookshelves. Can you let me know?
