Wasn't it the yellow FS Zen that was sporting, underbody venturi spoiler types on his car?
It was surprising though, how many of them took to the strategy for reducing weight, running plastic doors, and fibre and cardboards, and who knows what else. I wouldn't be surprised if quite a few sacrificed their aerodynamics in search for burning fat.

The yellow 'jaundice zen' (nice name z klasse )was really pathetically done up.Did anyone see its rear bumper??? It was the weirdest i've ever come across.And also the interiors were crazy.Had removed the entire dash-board and made a fibre one with the speedometer cluster in the centre of the dash.
One whacked out zen this was.

The other car was the maroon colored indica.How the hell did he get in there??
And ofcourse the Sanstorms.

But this one takes the cake.

Mazda RX7 by Teammotorworks.Its too overdone with a lotta stickers n all.Dunno wot this guy was upto,but it was definately worse than the Team FS zen.Its lost that entire RX7 charm.

Hey! I completely forgot! What about that outstanding Tata Marina that the girls completely f'ed up on Saturday?! What a great ad for Tata. And to think that car didn't even have registration plates on it, so it must have been BRAND new. I wonder whose bright idea it was to repeatedly launch a brand new car on a dragstrip anyway? Sheesh!

hey KBK the marina was supposed to be on the drag strip and was supposed to have a full fledged meal in the back like the ad. the winner of the drag would get a date with the girl who was going to drive it and a free meal.... that was the plan until the car had to be towed away and the dude from tata motors came down to the line up and told the girl that the car was not going to run and was towed away sadly. What an image for tata. Brand new car TA TA!

the team fs zen just needs a coat of nice paint , the bodykit actually looks good maybe because it was not painted it looked so shabby.

totally agree... infact i liked the idea of the butterfly doors on the zen. only if it had a proper paintjob of 20k it would be a masterpiece am sure. even the RX7 wasnt dat bad either. some ppl r totally vinyl freeks & i wouldnt mind filling my car wid loadsa vinyls.
But I Surely agree wid u guys on dat esteem. a camel with its hump in da front

hey guys if it was auto show this jaundice zen what you all call would definately would look the best, but all the time went into the engine prep, but to its luck the fuel pump started giving problems, thats why she didnt perform, one night before she clocked 15.56 without nos. challenge to any one any time

Default Yellow Zen Rocks!!!

Ok....the Yellow Zen was a bit rough without the paint job.....but on friday night there was a little drag at khargar, and i heard about it and i had taken my Dad's 540i to see what it does, and we dragged and she totally stripped me. The team fs guy said he wouldnt run it at full throttle nor would he use the nos. He said the car had just got completed however it was on friday at 10 Pm. I think the guy had done a brilliant job with the turbo.....Did you people hear the BOV's Scream??? Mannnn, was totally maaad......im going for the delhi drag with my baleno, and hope to get it tuned from him. Ive just come back from bahrain a month back and hope Team FS completes my baleno.
p.s.> Even when the Enzo was launched....so now are the Enzo and the Yellow Zen the worst looking cars?....HA HA
