RSC cars are faster than stock esteems. Light weight makes the whole difference.. They are way lighter than a stock car even with the roll cage.

That's odd, I always thought it would be the other way round. My apologies.

IIRC, RSC Esteems are also allowed to have better shocks/suspension, which may not matter that much on striaghts, but on corners they do.

Yup, RSC cars usually run Konis and more recently J Anand (even though its the costlier option) suspension. Makes a massive difference.

MA5K, dont go by that number, you can get a decent car, especially for your first season in the range of 2 - 2.5 lakhs...

Deepak's is going for much lesser than that.. He does not want the car anymore since he moved up to 1400 so he's giving it away at a throwaway price..
