Exclamation Road cars: shotgun disadvantage

One of several *cheap* alternatives to minimize LH front loading on this track: leave the passenger seat (front left) empty

Look at it the other way , i mean be optimistic .. With nitrous in the passengers seat ur bound to get better stablility into the corners .. It certainly helps in a few cases .. We had a few guys up on two wheels and i wonder what could have happened !!!!

The rear is the problem with the VTEC which is slowing it down considerably in the inner section ..

However , as stock cars from the factory given the same/similar driver the baleno is quicker of the two .. Atleast on the MMST short loop ..

Yes and like v1p3r said i really appreciate ajmat for putting the VTEC on track to put an end to the debate ..
Ya, even I was wondering what happened to the (rather vocal until now) VTEC brigade. McLaren pronounces the Baleno as the winner and even thanks ajmat for participating. Come on Honda boys, cant let him get away with it.

Looks like u guys desperately want us to come for the track day but hey, we'll do it only if it's possible.

I will only be able to make it this time, provided we don't have any anual submissions in college. Bunking a class is one thing, but bunking your submissions can land you in deep trouble.

2ndly, my car is in Hubli and theres no way i'm gonna drive down 700+ kms for a track day.

If things work out, u might see a green Vtec on track this time. U know U can't force us into it, so hang on!!!

PS: V're more enthu about driving the Vtec on track than you guys are about watching it but, only if everything goes as planned.

Wolf, We don't care what Overdrive says.

Give them an ad, and they'll write good about a spanner or a nut.
