Hi Guys ,
Add me to the tentative list.
Got to attend the 8th International Jawa Day celebrations that morning at Mahabs with Roaring Riders Madras, hope we would return by 11 AM

I will bring my OHC vtec to the track.

regarding the tyres, its on new bridgestone ones, will it be able to bear the brunt?

regards,
ajay

Add another Vtec to the tentative list, but it's an NHC Vtec :(

Hope the AD07s make up for lack of talent and handling prowess!

Video here is one from the last trackday. One of the second set of laps. At the end of the day was faster by around 7 seconds than in this video (that's what Manek's 800 can do to you). My car was a stock Zen with 96k Kms so you can guess what power it makes. Its not about how much bhp its how you use the bhp.

Watch out around 1:50 spun Ikon. If I was't looking well ahead would't have been nice.
But there things are nothing compared to driving on the "real" roads.
That is the exact reason why trackdays are "FUN"

Manek you are the "man"
If it was't for you I'd have not pushed and spun and in the end knocked off around a good 9 seconds off my lap.

I hope so. Not sure. We have our Fresher's on Saturday night. Me being a teetotaller is one advantage, but if we end the party too late, I might not wake up!

Hope you wake up on time!!

Did try calling you before the Spain vs Paraguay match (we went to Chung wah and then to Barista on Mysore road ) ; you didn't receive the call; so please from next time receive incoming calls; thanks.

Thats the point. We aren't running Imprezzas, so high octane wont make a diff to regular low compression engines.

I've been running my car on IOC regular fuel (which i will also be using on track) and it feels exactly the way IOC 91 did.

Hi,

Any hi-octane would do! I am not sure about the difference cuz I am running on the stock ecu, had this been the RD ecu then there surely would have been a big difference.

Cheers,
Shrey

Don't assume so.
Chikku's zen(in its current avatar) can be faster than a vtec on the track.
Thats what I love about the track. Unlike an highway, it brings out the skill for the world to see.

And, one should know the bad side of the track as well:

And thankfully, the car had a rollcage, a FIA spec seat with 5 point harness.
God forbid, what if this happens during a track day with a car that has NO roll cage?
Food for thought, fellas.
