LOL, royal mess is an understatement.

After seeing the 2 cars line up (the Civic and the Mustang), seeing the start was the biggest anticlimax of the weekend.

In one lane you had the Civic that was making all sorts of noises from the turbo, the BOV and whatnot and in the other lane, the Mustang was trundling along towards the finish to set a time of 29s. The joker at the startline with the Mic was trying to jeer up everyone about this race between American muscle and Japanese technology. LOL.

It was being driven by Vivan I believe (The Civic). Didn't look at the Civic's time because I was leaving and just stayed back to see the Mustang's time. And anyways, all the 400+ hp monsters were struggling for traction so the timings were dependent on which car got less wheelspin and consequently, better 60ft times. It is a pity because we had slicks ready for Jitu's car but the wheels didn't turn up on time.

Now looking forward to the next leg which is supposedly in April My car's paintjob will be done by then so I'll be taking a shot at it too.

The 14 sec EZen could certainly do better with better rubber. If i am not wrong it was running with what looked like worn out potenza GIII's. Talking of EZens didnt our member Zeeshan participate with his EZen? what timing did he clock?

Please do. The Esteem and the Zen were the giant killers on Day 1.
The Zen was worked on by Raj himself.

3 - A2 = 3rd Place - Tausif (Swift)
4 - C = 1st Place - Imran (Ezen)
5 - D = 1st Place - Rajeev/Wicky (Ezen)
6 - D = 3rd Place - Jerwis (Ezen)
7 - G = 2nd Place - Faisal (Ezen)

Yes the tyres were old, the car is up for sale and it was a last moment decision to bring it in for what seems to be its last drag with our team.

Thanks man, but have you collected your award?
Also you should have turned up the second day, a guy clocked 10.5 secs, would have been a nice competition between that busa and you.
