This lancer belongs to sideways. It is a mivec lancer with evo 4 (i think) body kit.

in this photo it is being driven by sriram (a biker) with me as passenger.

Cheers!

Thanks for the praise . I dont deserve credit for the "great driving". It was my first time out on track and I just pushed like crazy! The tyres made me look like a hero!

Unfortunately, we didnt get to meet. If we did, maybe I need to see a pic of you to recognise you! I met so many Madras TBHPians in such a short time that I honestly dont remember most of you!

hey elantraGT,

Nice snaps man. In case you have any more of the OHC VTEC, that would be great. Nice camera positioning too.

Hi Megazoid.
I looked up your girl's skirt. Hope you don't mind.
Those Hotbits coilovers were really HOT.
I assume you bought it from Spitfire / Mr. Vidhya Prakash.
I notice you're running on a soft setting.
Who tuned your suspension for you?

Amazing! I'll pass this along to the Octavia driver. You sure the 800 overtook the Octavia on the straight? Can Manek confirm? I drove the Octavia on the highway and it seemed fairly quick to me.

You do the math.
Edit: You forgot the driver and his corner exit speeds.

You are welcome hari. I was wondering about the "l" Stickering impression too.. good that you clarified. Ona lighter note It would have been fun to watch a car with "L" on the tracks. .

I hope you are kidding about the Apr/May timeline for the next track meet. the temp on the tracks will be soaring at 40 -45 degrees celcius during that time. Even though I didnt drive on the tracks I took the advice of the seniors here and drank a ot of water to keep myself from being dehydrated. The heat on the track was too much. When I drove home I was exhausted to the core and I was wondering how the bangy guys were going to make it back the same day.

Nikhil I dont think we met, but do you remeber a guy with a Camera bag and a Plastic bag with Water bottle roaming in Cargos and a light green tshirt.

Makes sense now. Octavia: 90 bhp, ~1400 kgs. Go 800! The Octavia dude is disappointed. Says he will bring a proper German next time.
