New rules and regulations !!!! Dont know how will things turn out to be with the changes ?? And whose doing what with all sorts of rumours flying around with the rides that are coming down .. So best would be to wait for watch , im guessing ?! .. Cant think of anything else logically ..

PS : Also i think it would be easier to take part in bangalore and chennai than drive down all the way upto bombay/delhi .. Maybe pure logistics as well now what we have chennai on the calender ..

Looks like the tuners are afraid to run with a level and fair playing field now....and in typical Indian union fashion, they go on strike! Its no wonder things never progress in this country.

.. Well said RT .. Very well said .. I guess a few rules changes have certainly changed the perception of a few self proclaimed tuners now .. Lets wait and watch ..

its the full of themselves, self proclaimed tuners who outsource their work from other minute fame brilliant guys, who are going to lose respect. its more like only the ones who really deserve it would get any of the respect if these guys shy away . .
