He wanted my number to get the snaps but I gave him the Team BHP URL instead! LOL!
This happened coz the impeccable gentlemen at the apmsc are yet to pay their official photographer his dues for covering their previous drag event.

And let me tell you... wherever we go, be it Madras, Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Cochin, Coorg, Nasik, Bangalore, Pune, Mysore, I have the bug to try the 1/4 mile everywhere. And surprise surprise! It's about the same everywhere.... in the 16s.
I didn't know you had drag events in Chennai, Coimbatore, Cochin, Coorg, Nasik, Pune & Mysore. Do let us in on it next time these events take place, some of us will join in too. Or did you mean you tried timing yourself unofficially at all these places? Mazdayar, I am sure you know as much as I do how accurate manually timing a car is. And how do you measure a 1/4 mile? With tape? What if your car has a speedo error? And thus an odo error as well? What if whoever is timing the car stops it a wee bit late or early? Lets stick to putting up timings from official runs or from readings from a Vbox shall we? Anything else is just inaccurate and debatable.

I am just trying to state the laws of physics and the effect altitude plays in a way an engine behaves. I don't see why we are having an argument on this. Scientists have spent hundreds of years researching all this and I for one would agree to what was taught to me in school.

Mcl, what's your point bro? Are you saying that a street stock (no internal components changed) esteem with ecu+ headers+filter and weight reduction (I am assuming) cant do a 16 sec run??

Hey mazdayar, nice to see that you have joined Team BHP! Your tips would be valuable to guys here who want to dabble in motor sports.

Hope you are recovering well and that we will see you in active circuit soon!

My point is stop comparing runs and timings from one city to the other (and hence trying to justify timings), specially with such huge differences in altitudes. 1/4 mile times are affected by wind (speed, direction of flow), track temperatures, humidity, altitude, tire pressures etc. And we aren't even considering the tune of the car yet.

Well, firstly, if you read my post clearly, you will find that I have clearly stated that I have the bug to time myself wherever I go. And, in case you do not know, I have been in Motorsport for 20 years now and also run a state of the art Indoor GoKart track in Hyderabad. So, obviously, I have the timing equipment. And no, I don't have to measure the 1/4 mile with tape everytime. The timing equipment wires are measured and cut to the right length

I do everything methodically. So refrain from debating with me.

Thanx for the welcome. It has always been my endeavour to pass on what I've learnt from my experience to newcomers so that I can accelerate their learning curve and quickly bring them on par with the puraney paapi

And yes, recovery is on in full swing and I myself am looking forward to get back to where I'm happiest behind the wheel.

I am not trying to debate your 20 years experience but could you let us in on the equipment you are using to time a 1/4 mile?

The timing equipment is from ROC, UK. All details available at roctiming.com

I don't see any equipment for measuring 1/4 mile timings. So how exactly do you measure a 1/4 mile with whatever equipment you have?

mclaren1885, I feel you are going out of your way to prove some point of yours. Give him a break. Mazdayar is a seasoned national rallyist and has many laurels to his name. So definitely he would not make a comment without merit.

I am sure we can give a warmer welcome to somebody who has just joined Team BHP, instead of accosting him from the first post itself! Besides, he can definitely teach you or me a thing or two about driving fast.

I believe it is Kart Cave at Snow World, lower tank bund.

Don't get me wrong, but I am genuinely interested to know the alternate ways to time a car over a 1/4 mile. Till date, we have had timing equipment from Race America (specifically designed for drags and not track use) and VBOX. I am looking at cheaper (hopefully) yet accurate alternatives to timing devices.

^Dude, McLaren, I seriously dont understand what are you trying to prove here.
There are a lot of other devices than a Race America and VBOX. You have the drift box, veypour etc etc. So what are you looking at?
Mazda is not a rookie trying to prove some dumb point. He has been there and done that, while most are simple keyboard warriors. Take a chill pill!

If yes, we met in 2007 during the castrol throttle max.

I wish you a fast recovery.

PS: I wanted to ask you this earlier: "Are you some how connected to Mazda Motors"?
