Hi Guys,

Very nice write up there Mclaren. Sad to hear about what you went through. Even I had a bad time at the run with 2 very bad launches and 3rd gear problems. On day 1 I had a ET of 16.6xx and on day 2 it was 16.722 which was not bad considering I had trouble shifting into 3rd gear. I had to double clutch on both days to get the car into 3rd thanks to the stupid short shifter which came with car(installed by the previous owner). Anyways I will only blame myself and not any circumstances for not performing.

I think with some launch practice and gear shift sorted out I dont see any reason why I should not reach the 15's timing unless I have some bad luck. Please remember I had not removed a single thing from my car including the spare tyre. If you use the car in its daily setup with all gadgets installed like the heavy duty ICE, two coats of sound damping sheets, broader low profile wheels, stock seats, stock block any car would be a bit slower than the rest.

The craziest thing was that Speed 97 could also be adultrated... I remember testing the car with 97 octane in Bangalore and had no knocking at all and we can just thank our stars that we did not go higher on the compression as it was orignally planned.

My car managed really well using standard Shell Super Unleaded and was working fine till 10 PSI without a prob, just had to drop boost due to a bad fuel pump.

And yes it is easy for one to stand back and say the car was not tuned properly but do realise even the best tuned cars this time ran into severe troubles due to the excesive heat...

guys dont fight yaar! seriously, there is no point in flaming. what has happened - has already happened. no point in digging up the grave.

the topic of the thread is pictures, videos and experiences.... not pictures, videos and personal comments about others (cars, owners, drivers, and tuners). share what you guys did there like dragging, taking pics/videos.

on a "selfish & serious" note, stop fighting and post more pics, videos, especially more pics/videos of the Fiat.

cheers. take care.
