You can ask Mohnish. With 205s I didn't brake. With 185s I needed to scrub the speed so I used the brakes, but not with the better rubber.

Did anyone capture dilip rogers doing a stoppie just before C1 ??? I still am wondering how it must have felt to be on one wheel at over 200km/hr ..
Whoa. I guess i missed it.
I was shocked to notice the Malaysian Champion back in Chennai due to lack of sponsors. He's the friend of the guy who owns that half-cut city. This dude has SKILLS. I wish i had the 40 lakhs to support him to continue his fantastic racing career.

if C1 is the first corner after the start/finish line, then you are right. i remember the brake lights glowing in almost every car that went into the turn, including the balenos.

My suggestion to all the married/family folk...make it a family event. Bring everyone along. The resort is nearby, and it's a nice place to stay. Some biker boys did just that this time.

Yes the delhi drag is confirmed for the 12th .. Dont think there will be any participating at delhi however .. So either of the two weekends should be fine ..

Nice,

How about you try a website like webshots.com or flickr.com and create an album there so everyone can see em...?

Did you get a chance to shoot any videos? (or did anyone else take any vids??)
