Islero, that's the twin-cam Zen that I drove in Unrestricted. It was doing 16 flat and even slightly lower with only the front seat removed, and no nitrous.

hey Islero, Goldie did'nt take part in the drag as Amitoj thought it would'nt stand a chance against other 16v E-Zens that were there... may be if i had driven Goldie it would have stood a fair chance as i'm half Amitoj's size.... what say Amitoj... may be Next time eh !!! ???



@ Islero : Thats Goldie ( beside the track and not on it... ) on day 1.

I agree with you but a little more lineance and the whole show would replicate last years proceedings...

I never knew Babban had RX's!!! About the RD, yeah he clocked the fastest for Indian bikes and set a new national record, at 12.77secs ET I guess!!!

Guys,
Any clue on when and where is the next speed run is going to happen????

I would like to see the video too. But makes me think if the dolphin was even tested once on a drag strip or elsewhere after the turbo was added. A launch on an empty street would have staightaway identified that this car can't handle all that power and something needs to be done about its handling. Maybe cincla can throw some light on this. BTW, does it still run an Esteem engine, if so 8V or 16V?

The car was never tested before the drag.....it was put together and finished only sunday at 5 am....The actual run on the strip was the first ever test run....

Yes it is still running a esteem engine.....running about 3~4psi boost...

Anyways there's always a next time. Insha allah we'll be well prepared for that.

I'm just bumping this thread to check if there's any news about the Chennai-speedrun.(Didn't want to create a new thread for it)

@Mods:Forgive me if i'm wasting bandwidth.
