Khaadu, I'm just a lil worried that I found the 64bhp esteem to be hairy enough so how will my poor baleno survive ? I'm going to have to be really hard on the brakes.

Can't use stock tyres as they're 14 inchers and I don't want to use my alloys - Will go down to BK Tyres (Lajpat) and pick up some second hand 185/60's for the 13" stock rims (I think I still have them stored somewhere in trhe house).

btw - should I buy some of those Ultima XR's ? how much of a dent in my wallet will they do ?

cheers

I guess this time too it's going to be a mud/dirt track. Why can't they organize a tarmac auto-cross like in most other countries? I am sure there is some parking lot or similar avenue in Delhi/NCR which can be ulitized for same.

Gears,

This will be my fourth outing - last three were in my 96 esteem running on stock rims and Michelin Certis 175/70R13's...

I was contemplating getting different tyres and putting them on my rims as I'm a little worried about the rims giving way....

Though now I guess I'll stick with the car as is - 14" Auras with 195/60 Michelin MXF Sports...I hope the alloys will be upto the etst (i do have the stock 13" rims stored away but will have to buy tyres if I want to use them)

Now if only I could find a flux capacitor - that should help me a lot !

RedOne - I've never done an autocross on tarmac but as Khaadu says, it'll be a whole lotta more fun on dirt - racing in a parking lot with traffic cones seems a bit artificial - but with nice dirt which turns into an unholy slippery slidey mush is an experience I can't forget - my best result has been qualifying 14th but the fun I had was unparalleled - let's see if I can do better this time - I''m just worried that I've never really pushed my baleno so I'm not so sure as to how fast or how slow to drive...btw - perhaps a better term for the dirt autocross will be rallycross. It's a bit like a special stage of a rally.

Anyway, I went and gave my entries in at Motorcraft - for the Baleno class as well as the open class - there were 3-4 people around at the same time - looks like as usual the esteem will be the most popular vehicle.

So who all has/will be taking part ?

And who's gonna be there watching me make a fool outta myself (hope not)

Well, will be there early morning to just have a look around and meet up with you guys - best of luck mate ! - ..... I haven't gotten a number yet - will be going tomorrow at 10 for the scrutiny. I once had number 69 which made my day and number 42 as the entrant number.... couldn't be happier.....

Yeah, doing both categories in the same car - The ol esteem's a bit underpowered - I managed to qualify once byt coming 18th and 17th the next two times just made me mad The carb ones don't have a hope when the big guns start driving.

If you're interested , we could meet up on the 21st and go have a look at the track ? whaddya say ?
