Seat, Chevrolet(Cruze), etc still compete in the WTCC with FWDs against RWDs from BMW.
Do you mean to say if you take a FWD and RWD
FWD will have more grip ?

EDIT : But oh man, I just love that civic.

There are too many variables involved Riju. But with the specs we are talking about, Nitrous is Bang On.

Agreed. I might as well shut up and keep my views to myself.

But you see Ikon and Esteem are "big" cars compared to my puny Zen.
I don't fancy being run over.
Not that I'm afraid of you or nirtous.

Sure i do a lot of 'bird' watching and the reason neo knows about it is he has joined me on many of these 'bird' watching trips!

Have only bazookas with those 3 metre long lenses which 3 people carry around, unfortunate ! Point and shoot - i dont believe in them by the time you press the shutter and the thing reacts to me the car i want to shoot would be in the corner after the next so its really pointless

Kaushik, mortals like me who carry only the point & shoots plan in advance and click the shutter when the car I want is in the previous corner. Sometimes we get sometimes we dont. Lol.

How come others with P&S camera are able to capture good pictures - Even on cell phone cameras on the TRACK? Do the cars slow down for a picture, smile and proceed ?

Bootli ---

Why you not bringing the station wagon?

Just ask your thambi to remove the doors, front left fender and you are good to go.

Lighter car = more performance.

Lighter car = more fuel efficiency!

^^^Yes I did; the Audi, Jag & Merc were on track for sometime; there was Cayman that didn't enter into the track; there was a Ducati GT1000 (my fav) that was just ridden on the track for the purpose of enjoyment; other than that there were normal CBR's from Redroosting & Alisha & several other Indian motorcycles.
