Well if you talk about biased figures Brabus should be the last thing you should be stating as it's obviously pro MB !

Even the publications are more unbiased than that. I already stated the ACI, figures and now to make it even more "unbiased" here is the overdrive comparo with figure on this page: http://www.*************/article/BMW...-A6/page3.html

There is no end to posting more links here and taking this thread off topic.
I rest my case!

Default I Want This Karizma In My Stable

Hey, was looking at the Indian Bikes results on the ACI Website:

Indian Bikes 4 Stroke 211cc - 260cc
129 -Umesh Gaikwad- Karizma -12.980 - 1
124 -Mandar Matkar - HH Karizma - 17.224 - 1
114 -Alok Shashidhar - Karizma - 17.382 - 2
123 -M. Muthukumar - Karizma - 17.502 - 3

First of all how do you place 2 people in the same category first with over 4 seconds of a difference? Typo or bad organization? Wonder when they are going to figure out how to use the lights and computer?

Secondly I think Mr. Gaikwad's Karizma is the machine I have been looking for all my life. Spent huge amounts of money and time getting RX's to run in the 14's and RD's just below the 13's. Must be doing something wrong (other than the obvious 4 stroke advantage). Team TVS should hang their head in shame (or possibly up their R&D Budget), measly 14's and 15's from a factory rider and bike, ouch.

Lets not even compare it with the foreign bikes.

Hey, I'd pay whatever money he wants, name the price and I'll buy that Karizma.

Mr Gaikwad's Karizma is a fraction of a second slower than a Busa. Wow. Honda engines really are something else.

What?! Did the Gallardo catch up and overtook you after the launch? If that is so, I am extremely sorry. Didn't mean to hurt you.
Couldn't catch a glimpse of the entire strip.

Just a few words on how the event was conducted;

As far as Hungama is concerned they have been ok in the past but this one was complete disaster as this event isnt some filmy event, this on required loads of coordination bween Hungama and Auto Car which was invisible!

As far as Auto Car is concerned, they can probably sit down and fathom for the rest of their lives how horribly incapable they were.

Let me put in points few absolute goofups but feel free to add up guys:

BLOOPERS:

1) Spectators were treated like $hi+ and were made to stand nowhere close to where they would like to watch a motosport event from!!!

2) Participants were not allowed to watch the event!!! (Unless you have the big daddys stamp/tshirt on your face) !!!

3) Few categories didnt have trail runs!!! (Wonder how some people always got it, Oh I forgot they were extra terrestrials/VIPs) !!!

4) Burnouts before the runs not allowed before the final runs Im sure this is first time in the history of Drag racing -worldwide!!! (This is how crappy it could get)

5) There were absolutely no facilities, least was a paid air compressor, I mean we didnt expect a paint booth or dyno!!! (Costs Rs.2500/- per day: Idea rejected...courtesy autocar)!!!

6) Scrutiny: Open the hood, wink 4 times, shut it- DONE!!! (It takes me more time to differenciate complete engines in that time, say zen engine from esteem etc)!!! Wonder whats autocars definition of scrutiny, guess- LAME FORMALITY!!!

7) Cars with engine swaps were allowed in prostock instead of unrestricted, say M800's with esteem engines etc!!! (I couldve ran my vtec mill with a turbo in an M800 body against few good men running their OE body+engine). Do these guys know what is a friggin ENGINE or a CAR is as a matter of fact????!!!!! I doubt!!!

8) No tuning the car after the trial run WHAT THE HECK IS THE TRIAL RUN FORRR????

9) No post run scrutiny for winning machines!!! ( No protest-No scrutiny- Resultant: Run anything!!!)

10) HORRIBLE HORRIBLE anchor/MC or whatever it was!!!

11) Music guy didnt know what was going on, he played some crappy music all day long, we could hear supras as loud as some stock M800s from that stady family area!!!

12) Timing lights/christmas tree/whole equipment (BRAAT FRAAM AMRICAA- as said by the anchor thing there) had its own brain and functioned differently each run...and sometimes refused to give out any time at all!!! LOLzzz

But the FIRST PRIZE GOES TO..........TAAN TAA DAAAA.....!!!
13) Prize distribution under the streetlight. God, this was absolute JUNK!!!!!!!!!!!!

No Im not. The car is capable of 15secs flat. I know what went wrong for the resultant 15.4sec and 15.6sec runs but I dont wana put them as some lame excuses :-/ . Proof will be the upcoming bangalore run.

Nobody knows what Keshav clocked!!!

Is there one happening soon ??

Can somebody post the supplementary regulations (SR) of Mumbai speedrun or a link to it.Need to have a look at the new rules for the Street stock class and changes in the prostock class.
