Lose traction! heck no! That car has so much traction that at first its hard to comprehend, especially for us FWD guys. As far as driving it, its simply perfect for our roads I feel. No worries about bumps, potholes, unmarked speedbreakers. Surely the most practical "super"car one can buy here!

RR Phantom got violated by Baban Khan in the Formula India prototype. Waste of a car.

Met up with the Fiat guys after the drag. Beautiful ride, lots of weight, since the fenders etc are metal, NOT fibre. The launch was impressive, showing what an RWD in the hands of a good driver can do.

Mihir Dharkar was let down by his car. Those who saw his launch in the Pro Stock class will agree that he was probably the best driver on the strip. Catapult or Rubberband would be a good nickname for you, Mihir.

We got to see how ACI makes a complete hash of all the results and the hard work by the MAI. I would guess this is what happens when non-enthusiasts are involved in the organisation.

Fiat was running a stock Contessa 1800 block with a Garrett hybrid turbo mated to an intercooler. An RR FPR was used with the stock Conti carb. BOV was HKS, I think. Suspension was stock Conti again.

The ET of the MR2 (14.113) is lower that that of the WRX (14.185). But the MR2 had a slower RT, so it finished behind in the total time.

RR FPR is a Rising Rate Fuel Pressure Regulator. Used to proportionaly increase the fuel flow at higher boosts.

Monkey just before his run. Black car. Black helmet. Black interiors. Black shades. White monkey. Go figure.





V12 power. 6.75 litres of waftability got taken to the cleaners by a middle-aged man in a kart.


The interiors of the crowd favourite. Looks like no other Premier Padmini on the face of this earth:
