While testing the night before we ran about 22 to 23 psi. But since we had so many problems (which have been detiled in my earlier post) we decided to only run 18Psi for the drag. Trust me guys this car is cpable of late 10's early 11's. next time we will be prepared - Thats a promise.

Hey Jaggu the Drag strip had an upward slope.

LIVE HARD, DIE SIDEWAYS !!!
Hey man,

Thanks a lot for consistently and extensively answering my queries.
RM35k for the ENTIRE kit?? ie including engine & drivetrain? thats a great deal!!!! isnt it? (converts to 4L INR + duty)

Wow, 18psi is still pretty impressive... and thanks for the tidbit on the fuel mix problem, interesting to see how u fixed that.

Actually, it would be the opposite, theoretically. IMO

Last i heard was that the Delhi Speedrun was abandoned due to lack of sponsors.I dont think it will take place at all.Maybe next year now.
