Should be working on a couple of corsas post this K1000 rally, will let you know how well they respond.

Not sure if lookups can be changed though OBD port on the corsa. Even if it could , i guess it would be more like just uploading preset maps.

Seems like they were really sporting enough. Had I know maybe I could have dropped by with another friend of mine. There is always a next time.

Hey Rahul if you are organising a track day in kari.........try and squeeze in 1/8th mile drag bro. I am positive you will have ample amount of participation.
Ray, thats a wonderful idea. Let me see what I can come up with. Since the straight is almost 900mtrs I guess we could even pull off a 1/4 mile event too. Thanks for pointing this out. Looks like a track day just got even better.

An S version! I certainly did NOT expect that. I am impressed

OT:
A porsche with a "S" is not a BIIIIIG deal.
But, one with a "Turbo" or "GT RS" and then we're talking.

I get your drift, Nitrous. An S is still middle ground and not the epitome of performance. Now consider the 385hp 4.8L big mothah powering up against a sub 1.5L unmodded car with just power electronics under its hood. 200 metres or not, heavyweight or not, isn't that worth some real estate in your mind? Or unlike me, are you just not easily impressed?

The Power-to-weight ratio of both the cars are not far behind.
Anyways, I will always love Porsche!

Oh he's seen quite a few 911s on track. See http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/398180-post3.html and http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/398261-post6.html

That brings me to the question; without timings how does one conclude that Psycho was faster or v1p3r? They can't possibly compare against each other purely by elimination when they share the same car! Are timing results (at least for podium finishes) posted somewhere on this site?
